FILE - In this Aug. 17, 2011 file photo, President Barack Obama reacts to catching a football tossed to him as he visits the Galesburg High School football team in Galesburg, Ill., during a three-day economic bus tour. The president has developed a lasting tie to this small, economically bruised town with an empty refrigerator plant and a liberal arts college where he likes to roll-out big economy speeches. He is scheduled to give an economic speech at Knox College in Galesburg on Wednesday, July 24, 2013. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)
