The White House announced Friday that President Barack Obama will come to Fresno on Feb. 14 to discuss the drought and federal efforts to deal with it.

A White House official said further details about the president's trip to the central San Joaquin Valley will be made public in the coming days.

The trip will mark Obama's first visit to the Fresno area. The only other time he visited the region was in October 2012 when he traveled to the United Farm Workers headquarters at Keene in Kern County to dedicate the Cesar E. Chavez National Monument.

The drought has been a key focus of action in the House this week. The Republican-led House on Wednesday passed a water bill authored by Rep. David Valadao, R-Hanford, that would limit water releases into the San Joaquin River to help the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta...

What about that fish which the ‘Rats think is more important than California farmers.

Is he going to own up to that?

This would almost make me come to California-—”almost” is the operative word, here…….

It’s just too far, and I don’t do airplanes any more.

Good luck on getting a big crowd. I’ll be there in spirit..

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?

Well he was in Michigan yesterday to sign the taxpayer ripoff bill and talk about global warming. There were protesters despite the 12 degree temps.

The photo op will be done in front of hand-picked supporters. Then, it's off to fundraisers in San Fran and Hollywood.

Those protest signs look handmade and do not have the union made logos on them. I hope none of those Americans got in any serious trouble. They also don’t look like those “day workers” you see hanging out around Home Depot waiting for a job.

Golden Corral would be perfect.....the one and only time I ever ate there was on a driving trip in St. George, Utah, and I ended up with barfs and sh*ts that lasted to Idaho Falls the next night, Cody the night after that, finally easing off in Wall, South Dakota.

The Messiah will come to California and with a wave of the hand he'll create 40 days and 40 nights of rain.

The farmers should start now loading two of each kind of their animals on as many boats as they can find.

I think they did claim he was going to heal the sick, hold back the rising oceans, end war and poverty.

He will probably claim the drought is due to CLIMATE CHANGE and requires the creation of new government agencies to combat CLIMATE CHANGE and the stepping up of more CLIMATE CHANGE education in schools. Along with new taxes to combat CLIMATE CHANGE.

Or, he'll announce that the feds will generously buy the parched land from the farmers for pennies on the dollar.

Then again, maybe he's just coming to Fresno to join Free Republic in person. :-)

“They booked the Olive Garden here in Fresno. Just damn! Spoiled my Valentine’s gift to Sheila.”

Impeach Obama for knocking out Jim's beloved Olive Garden on Valentine's day! The only choice now is to take Sheila to a sorry, good for nothing, finest Chinese establishment in the area. My condolences it has come to this. I'll make a contribution right now to the Freepathon to help defray the immense cost of the Chinese restaurant. Goodness knows, I have contributed to your Olive Garden tab for years now. :o)
