Earthquake, anyone? Preferably when he’s at the ninth hole?

Near a pond that will become a bottomless pit?

Is there a graduation or something to make it “official”, or does he now forgo such formalities, and go full vacation mode?

In MA here this week he at least put on the motions of doing a “wocester”* high school graduation, enroute to a fundraiser in Boston.

Palm Springs road closures announced for Obama visit

The couple are scheduled to arrive at the Palm Springs International Airport on Friday for a four-day visit.

Amid Foreign and Domestic Crises, Obama Plans to Fundraise and Golf This Weekend

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama should land at Palm Springs International Airport at about 6 p.m. Friday, straight from a visit to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota.

At approximately 8:30 a.m. Saturday, they’ll jump over to Laguna Beach for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser, followed by the commencement address to UC Irvine’s Class of 2014 at Angel Stadium, which wraps up at 1 p.m.

That puts the Obamas back in the desert at about 2 p.m. Saturday. They will stay for Father’s Day, before flying home to Washington, D.C., mid-morning on Monday. It’s unclear if their daughters, Malia and Sasha, will tag along.

What is Obama’s plan here in the Coachella Valley? Presumably a short vacation, and likely a round of golf or two – though the details remain fuzzy.

172 golf days since he took office. The press started insinuating that Bush was lazy after his third golf game while in office.

If I was better with the photos, I’d post a photo of Obama teeing off on a severed Iraqi head.

Obama Adds Laguna Beach Fund Grab, Palm Springs Getaway to UCI Commencement Visit
By Matt Coker Mon., Jun. 9 2014 at 6:02 AM

Here’s how the trip breaks down, according to the Democratic National Committee:

- After the Obamas visit an Indian reservation in North Dakota on Friday, they will travel on to Palm Springs.

- Early Saturday morning, the president first heads to the coast to attend a roundtable discussion at an undisclosed location in Laguna Beach where about 25 supporters will have contributed up to $32,400 each for the privilege.

- Later Saturday, Barry moves on to Angel Stadium in Anaheim, where Obama delivers the “Special All-Graduate Commencement Ceremony” address for UCI students and their guests, who start arriving at 6:30 a.m., although the program does not officially start until 11:30 a.m. Separate graduation ceremonies for individual schools on campus will have been held before and after Saturday. Fifty years ago, then-President Lyndon Johnson spoke at UCI’s dedication ceremony.

- Obama will leave Anaheim to reunite with his wife at their undisclosed getaway location in the Palm Springs area. It’s unclear whether the girls will be with mom and dad.

It will be Obama’s third visit to the desert oasis during his presidency (that we know of, heh-heh ...). He met with King Abdullah II of Jordan in February at the Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage, which is the same place the president met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in June 2013. Obama played golf with friends during both weekends.

This is apparently Michelle Obama’s first time back to the Coachella Valley since she attended former first lady Betty Ford’s memorial service in Palm Desert in July 2011.

“Is there a graduation or something to make it “official”, “

BINGO! You get the prize. That’s what someone told me, forgot the university.

The cost will rise because of extra security and other measures for Obama, but Irvine officials have estimated that the total cost will be less than $2 million.
President Obama will speak at UC Irvine's 50th anniversary Commencement Ceremony this Saturday.

There goes the tuition.

This clown is up to something.

He’s intentionally stirring up dissent with the American people and the military.

He’s clearly pushing for impeachment.

Obama doesn’t care about the 60,933,500 millions of Americans who didn’t vote for him plus the GOP leadership has surrendered to him so he does what he does.

Obama operates on the principle that if he ignores reality it will ignore him back.

If he rejects truth it will reject him back. If he rejects knowledge it will reject him back. If he rejects God, God will reject him back.

I see a principle here.

Is there a graduation or something to make it “official”, or does he now forgo such formalities, and go full vacation mode?

The answer should be obvious if you check the King's schedule. The King participated in a round-table discussion with Native American youth in Bismark, ND, and then gave a speech at the Cannon Ball Flag Day Celebration (at the Cannon Ball Powwow Grounds).

That's the Offical Royal Business that justifies the King's entire trip, and the reason why the taxpayer once again has the honor of paying for a trip that should be billed directly to the DNC.

I don’t believe in gory photos for the sake of entertainment. The dead deserve more respect than that. I do believe in gory photos for the sake of education. A democracy doesn’t work if it has uninformed, unthinking voters.

So true!

Everything he says and does shows that he rejects us, and we reject him back.

Fat lotta good it does until the universe vomits him out.
