WACO, TexasPresident Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will attend a memorial service Thursday for victims of last Wednesdays deadly fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas.
The service is scheduled to take place at 2 p.m. CT at Baylor University in Waco. A city official in West said the president is also expected to visit the site of the blast.
The Obamas were already scheduled to be in Dallas for the opening of former President George W. Bushs presidential library Thursday morning. White House press secretary Jay Carney said Monday the first couple will fly to West after the library opening to meet with victims of last weeks explosion, which killed 14 people and injured more than 200.

I have family in the area.........and they are pissed he is showing up.
I wonder what nonsensical glarb his teleprompters will tell him to say this time.
Yet another opportunity to promote his worthless self.
Like he gives a rip.
This will take the news focus off the Boston terroist bombing for a day or two.
Plus he can schlep some more 0FA money from his azzwipe supporters.
He was in town smoozing money so he is doing this for PR
Yep, he’s counting on a democrat Texas once immigration reform passes.
Still looking for his ‘Oklahoma City moment’. Move on, Obama.
He must’ve found another fundraiser in the area and needed the government to pick up his travel costs.
Hopefully he can buy a feeling from a real human before he shows up.
Rand Paul might derail his highness’s dreams.
Hew has a fund raiser in Dallas.
Those poor people are going through enough and don’t need to be subjected to the presence of the POS.
I feel badly for them.
He is tying the Boston Bombers to the issue of immigration.
No more open door policy.
How about NO immigration at all for 5 years?
That’s gonna muck up some Americans that married overseas.
Please stay out of Texas.
Can he be disinvited? Who wants him?
Maybe we should hire the Westboro freaks to protest against this.
FOAD; Texas takes care of its own
Sometimes George carries "compassionate conservatism" too far.
I’d prefer that blue-lipped son of a Kenyan monkey stay out of my state. All he does is foul things up whereever he goes.
Read that Bambi’s got fundraisers to go to afterwards.
Just another campaign stop. He is going to Bush Library and is in area anyway. Otherwise..he would not bother.my guess is not many people will be there unless they are paid and bused in....lol.
As George W. Bush library opens, a rare meeting of presidents and rivals
"But when they have a rare meeting in Dallas on Thursday for the opening of former president George W. Bush's library and museum, there will be smiles for the cameras and friendly chatter by President Barack Obama and former presidents Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter."
Talk about adding insult to injury—————
Stay the hell out of my state!
We don’t want you here. You defile everything you touch.
Read that Bambis got fundraisers to go to afterwards.
He goes to west, TX and then on to the fund raisers. That way the tax payer picks up the tab for the fund raisers.
He’s a pig. I wish he weren’t going to the opening of President Bush’s Library.
Lets face it, if he DIDN'T go there would have been a long thread here savaging him for not going, showing he doesn't care about flyover country, etc.
Yes, it’s disgusting. They should decorate the whole area with Christian symbols and watch him squirm and sweat.
What a vile and evil creature.
I’m sure it will cause all kinds of headaches for the people of the area just so mac daddy can pretend that he gives a crap about what the people are going through.
The only reason Obama and his wife Michelle are going to West, Texas is because they will be in Dallas to attend the opening of the GW Bush Library and attend a fund raiser (What else?). Since Obama and his wife, Michelle could care less about the devastated folks in West, Texas....I would suggest that the citizens of West and the surrrounding towns, turn out in large numbers to greet Obama and his Ilk, not with boo’s & catcalls, but simply turn their backs on Obama and his wife in silence. Booing & Catcalls demeans the Office of the POTUS, but back turning and silence is much more dignified and sends a powerful message to the rest of the nation as to how incompetent and cold hearted these anti-American two people (Obama & Michelle) are!!!
Just another photo op.
I have family in the area.....and that is just what they are going to do.
I really hope this tactic of folks out in West, Texas turning their backs on POTUS Obama and his wife works and many folks do it. There is, however, a “kinder way” for folks to show their disgust for the POTUS and his cold-hearted ilk. Face it...Obama could care less about West, Texas. He just about totally ignored it & the people killed, injured, with their lives changed forever. And....this may yet prove to be another terroist attack on USA soil!!! We’ll see.
When the POTUS arrives and is announced & introduced....people should give Obama a gentle round of applause, out of courtesy to the office. Then, no matter what he says afterward, they should not not applaud after any his his given remarks. When Obama concludes his remarks.....there should be no applause whartsoever!!! Just thinking out loud.
That’s his money for coming to Texas while he “visits” the GW Bush library opening.
The explosion was elsewhere which affords him another opportunity to pick up money from Texas trial lawyer Democrats (the top donors in the state, hands down).
He doesn’t give a rip.
I just heard on the radio that fema will not be helping out West because it didn’t quality as a big enough disaster for them.
Just another poke in our eyes.
