Anyone interested in a FReep?
You’d best ping your FResno List!
Just to rub it in, he’s visiting y’all on Valentine’s Day!

What about that fish which the ‘Rats think is more important than California farmers.
Is he going to own up to that?
Hope he’s not expecting to receive a lot of love. :)

He coming to tell you to forget about diverting water...the Delta Smelt has priority over taxpaying humans and every other soul who depends on the food coming out of the Central Valley. Bastards.
Another Bucket Brigade, perhaps?
Of course he is ... by the busload!
Feb. 14? That’s st. Valentines day. Why isn’t Obama taking the wife to the Golden Corral for the all you can eat buffet?
The photo op will be done in front of hand-picked supporters. Then, it's off to fundraisers in San Fran and Hollywood.
They booked the Olive Garden here in Fresno. Just damn! Spoiled my Valentine’s gift to Sheila.

Hadn’t thought of that.
