President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will be in Tucson Wednesday to attend the "Together We Thrive: Tucson and America" event at the McKale Memorial Center on the University of Arizona campus. The event is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. MST (8 p.m. EST) with doors opening at 4 p.m. MST (6 p.m. EST).

According to a university news release, organizers are expecting thousands of people to attend. If the 14,000-seat arena reaches capacity, overflow seating will be available at the university's football stadium. Video of the memorial will be shown on the scoreboard's big screen.

What the Hell is all the cheering about?

I think they are all happily surprised to discover that Jerry Garcia is alive and well and holding a feather at the podium.

Look at those happy faces ... like Bill Clinton at Ron Brown’s funeral. (She says, revealing her age ...)

Bravo for FOX cameraman who just caught Obooboo smiling as the crowd cheered, then quickly putting on his solemn face as he noticed that the camera was on him.

Shades of Bill Clinton!

Maybe they're cheering because the maniac killed a Pro-Life Republican Federal Judge.

A Memorial Service, yet the Presidential Seal on the Podium. Looks like obie thinks he is the main event. Sickening.

We have raised a generation of numbskulls.

Sounded like mostly young people cheering for Zero. We have raised a generation of numbskulls.

They've raised themselves for several generations.


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.

This is weird

Obama was just caught smiling from ear to ear then he saw an active camera was pointed at him. Obama wiped off his smile.
