Isn’t that kind of TMI about the route he’s taking? I thought they kept that stuff on the QT for Presidents?
(Not that I care what happens to this traitor...)
OK .. we come into LA, see ... an’ while all the media is focused on how we’ve f’ed up traffic, 2 busses from Texas roll in through the Latin section ... and unload ...
They did this for Bush back in 05. Was locked down on 635 for a fricken 2 hours. Was late to work.
Just in time for the Big Quake to hit?
Except a lot of innocent folk’s might get hurt or worse.
Read where he basically shut down all the private airfields in the Puget Sound/Seattle area. Loss of business so his highness can conduct a fund raiser?
Well, it’s pretty liberal area that will be inconvenienced.
I will not feel their pain.
This is LA.
One rumored car trip to the personal trainer by the Kardousheians and the whole media will ditch out on Obama coverage.....
I knew I smelled the stench of failure outside..now I know why..Obama is coming
La Brea? Any chance the tar baby falls into the tar pit??
Good thing Chris Christie isn’t in town. He might close a bridge or something and get the drive-bys upset.
Well, at least no trees will have to die for this latest gubamint convoy
he is also visiting his daughter, who is a Hollywood intern, on the tax payer’s dime. While carpetbagging among the 1 percenters (he just did so in Seattle with out stopping to say bugger all to the unwashed masses).
Get your tee-shirts!
“The Summer of 2014, Obama Begging for Money, Golf & Bathhouse Tour”
Did anybody ever snoop out what kind of car Baraq & Mooch bought for Malaria?
Obviously if it was Palin’s kid working there we’d get daily papparazzi updates....
Judging from the street closures he is going to Hancock Park on Wednesday and then he will go to the Beverly Hilton. Thursday will be in Brentwood. He does not have time for golf until he gets back to DC.
Or, as a good friend of mine posted on his Facebook page:
“the President is in my area all day...... Don’t come to Hancock Park / Miracle Mile area today unless you want to experience traffic that would crack your head open!”
