Tickets for the Rodriguez-hosted fundraiser range from $5,000 to $32,400. Jessica Alba, Demi Lovato, Rosario Dawson and Danny Trejo are slated to make appearances at the event.

The president will stay overnight in Austin and appear at a July 10 fundraiser and roundtable discussion hosted by Aimee Boone Cunningham at her home. Cunningham serves as the assistant secretary of the Center for Reproductive Rights. Tickets for this event are $32,400.

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.

This Guy actually believes he is a mighty and constructive solver of all things problematic with America and creator of the new mighty nation of Amerika.... However, he is in fact nothing more than a Delusional wrecking ball, destroyer of all things good about America.

No state should allow Obama, the filthy coyote, to land his plane at the airport. He transports illegals in here and we pay for it.
We are SLAVES NOW and Obama is laughing at us behind our backs.
It’s time to dump the current government. It’s not ours anymore.

Obama vs. Congress:

1. Obama: He says that this immigration mess is the dominant Republicans' Congress' fault, because it won't pass needed legislation.

2. Congress: On the other hand, Congress says that there are already immigration laws but Obama won't enforce them.

3. So, who is right? If Obama won't enforce the laws already on the books, could someone please list or explain the immigration laws that Obama ignores? Thanks.

For starters, Congress passed a law to build a fence on the border. It could already have been completed under Obama.

It’s time for military leaders to go to congressional leaders in the republican party and say “Come with us. We’re going to the white house to make an arrest.” Of course, they’d have a hard time finding a republican leader.

He does this to fill up his time at the WH. World events are so boring right now, that “what difference does it make” if he is gone?

“to land his plane at the airport”

remember when the ousted president of Honduras couldn’t land his plane because the people made a formation on the runway

He can read a teleprompter.

Read the teleprompter and fundraise and be sympathetic to anti-American Marxist/ socialist causes. That is all his handlers want of him.

Then he gets to play golf, be entertained and eat well.

Globalist one world powers have much invested in this Rat.

Better re-check your tee times at Barton Creek.
