President Barack Obama returns to the Bay Area on Thursday for some more fundraising and to deliver a key policy message.

When the president arrives Thursday evening, his first stop will be a reception in Palo Alto, followed by dinner at the Portola Valley home of venture capitalist Vinod Khosla.

The president will stay in the South Bay overnight.

Before he leaves for Southern California on Friday, the president will deliver a statement touting the benefits of his Affordable Care Act.

Can someone point me to the job description manual for president that says he is required to do at least one fundraiser somewhere random in the country each day.

Not to mention a position that is supposed to represent the whole population of the country, doesn’t seem to be appropriately used to fight against the interests of half the country.

All this Kenyan fundraising is costing the American taxpayers a fortune. Whatever happened to that sequestration bull****? Doesn’t that cover fundraising?

Wasn’t he here when he made fun of the Pennsylvania people for clinging to their God and guns.

Obama is for the little people, like all Democrats.

Does this man spend ANY time in the Oval Office? Or does he just keep on campaigning?

Air Force One has an office. He can do his scheming as easily at 35,000 feet/$189,000.00 an hour as he can in the Oval Office.

It isn’t just about fund raising on this one.

Khosla has been very interested in “Green Technology” for at least the last 13 years.

This is a quid pro quo. Barry gets loot for his party, Khosla will get new investors and firms to partner with and some government help at some point.

Well, one thing’s for certain: If the terrorists attack a U.S. embassy, they’ll know the Undocumented Kenyan is asleep on the job.

Of course he might actually do something because of the truth of his lies.

Then again ....

Khosla had the best returns of any VC for a while, but I don’t know if his green technology investments have paid off like his previous ones.

His false-messiahship does not do work for his salary. He expecteth adoring throngs to worship him. Many times he golfeth.

Or goeth forth and vacationeth. Campaigning 24/7 is tiresome.

Plus he must practiceth denying any knowledge of his disciples.

Allah be praised.

Oh, that’s the band-aid to cover his campaigning on our dime, eh? Democrat welfare.

Obozo has never worked a day in his life prior to worming his way into the oval office. He is simply maintaining that history of not ever having done anything.

My husbands grandfather is 93 years young :) enjoys a glass of red wine most nights & can still play the piano..beautifully. I love him dearly.. especially love hearing his war stories & he’s definitely not shy about his opinion about the current admin/state of this country. Said nothing comes close to the scandals (crimes) that we’re currently hearing/seeing.

Don’t know either. Had a friend who was good friends with Khosla late 90’s early 2000’s.

He made me aware of Khosla’s move into green around that time.

I laughed about it but, later thought “What do I know? This guy has private jet money”

Never gave it another thought. I think the whole thing is a load of bunk and many of these deals are about structuring for the 1st guys in, so they get a return.

I don’t personally see how green makes any money off the actual tech, as there is marginally a spot for it in the marketplace.

What do I know? I ain’t got private jet money....yet...

I was looking at the comments at a KTVU-2 site announcing the visit, and the comments there were almost unanimously anti-Obama. Even his erstwhile supports are fed up with his stopping through CA and raking in cash like their state is some kind of ATM.

Needless to say, it was rather entertainingto see these rumblings of discontent with the California state god. Not that there’s a massive groundswell of opposition to Obama in the Molden State, which as a whole is permanently chained to the floor of the democrat plantation, but some congressional races could shift next year.

He does treat Cali as his personal ATM machine doesn’t he.

My bet is that all this fundraising has two purposes.
One it gets him out of dc and the other is to raise funds for himself. I would bet that all this fundraising is for his personal enrichment. Don’t forget, he hates all Americans, not just those that disagree with him.

Green energy tech requires govt subsidies or restrictions on other energy sources to be viable. Hence the sucking up to govt players here.

Does this feckless one ever spend any time with his “family”? I believe he avoids them like the plague. Even when he was a senator from IL, his “family” stayed in Chicago. I guess reggie meet his “needs”.
