Two days in Austin means 36 holes of golf.

Might as well make a road trip out of it. It’s not like anything else is going on that would require the attention of the president of the US...

OMG!!

Please! Good point I had not thought of.

I hope not at mine. There’s a fairway out my backdoor!

Hmmm...note to self, do not stand on back porch, he might come over looking for his ball and I would be forced NOT to shake hands with him!

LOL, got enough going on in my life without an incident like that happening.

We don’t need a heads up. We know all about Barry’s quest for Texas cash.

Rick Perry has repeatedly asked him to visit the border mess while he’s here, but Obama has repeatedly declined.

Which speaks volumes.

What bit of inconsequential “official business” will King Barry conduct in Austin to justify having the taxpayers pay for this fundraising trip?

The national news this evening said Obama would be in Texas but wouldn’t be visiting the border. They failed to mention the fund raising, let alone 2 days of it.

Dear State Department Personnel: watch your donkeys for a couple of days because our President is going to be resting up for some fundraising. You’re on your own.
