As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Los Angeles Braces for Obama Jam

No, it’s not some new jelly from Michelle’s White House garden.

President Obama routinely ties up traffic for commuters in New York City and Los Angeles while driving around to pick up cash. Not that it stops them from voting for him.

He arrives in L.A. today right in the middle of afternoon rush hour, which is the same time he always seems to land in New York.

      • She was asked not to go to the gala in the evening, wasn’t she, because it would have created a security nightmare? Anyhoo, I looked at the photos of the attendees on NRO, and it looked liked a liberal, pro-Obama event. I wondered if Republican socialites and celibs were not invited.

    • First he must drop by Arkansas and then bec he’s already on the plane whip over to LA to scarf up money. I wonder if any Arkansans wish he had lowered the tides–or is that churlish of me?

  1. Yesterday, we received a notice that our street will be closed from 4:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. today while the Messiah is in Century City and then a private fundraiser a short distance away.
    He is the ONLY president who has ever closed down streets, other than those immediately surrounding their appearances. It’s unprecedented.
    Something new has been added: buses won’t be running during certain rush hours on the Westside – what a jackass!
    Yours truly will be waiting for him in front of the house with a huge poster – YOU LIED; FOUR BRAVE AMERICANS DIED!

  2. Speaking of Dear Leader… I have looked for a clip I saw and can’t find it anywhere. Maybe I imagined it… It was on The Five on Monday. Eric Bolling was showing photos from the correspondents dinner (featuring himself of course)… but at one point, he shows a short video of Obama sitting at the head table, apparently joking around with someone in the crowd sitting not far from him. He was holding a finger to one side of his nose and and blowing (likes kids do with, um, boogers… sorry!) I kept thinking, this is the leader of our country. Does he not know everything he does is filmed?? Would share it with you, but cannot find hide nor hare of it. Scrubbed from the universe evidently.

  3. Keith, I’m shocked that you, a respected journalist, don’t know that jam and jelly are two different creatures!

  4. All my life when we went on a trip. We left very very early in the morning. Before the morning traffic. Why can’t they figure out this routine.

  5. MISSION ABORTED !!!

    Went outside @ 3:30 to set up table, chairs and posters to greet Obama upon his arrival to our fair city.
    Instead, I was greeted with yellow crime tape stretched across my driveway, dozens of LAPD officers patroling the deserted street, police squad cars everywhere, and sharpshooters on rooftops.

    I was immediately accosted by several police officers and questioned about my poster – YOU LIED! FOUR BRAVE AMERICANS DIED.
    i had to go back inside the house to get ID to show the officers. Thought I was going to be arrested! Instead, I was told to take my poster to a designated ‘protester area’ which is several blocks away, far from Obama’s route. I decided against it – why bother. Obama won’t see it.

    It is now 5:35 and the motorcade is expected momentarily. Unfortunately, the yellow crime tape won’t be removed until 11:00 p.m. Hubby is going to have to park his car several blocks away and walk home, along with all the other residents in the area. We are all captives.
    The postman was not even allowed to drive his vehicle through the neighborhood today! No mail!
    This is the first time the homes on my block have been sealed with yellow tape. Normally, there are barriers at the corner and residents have to show ID to pass through. This is a quiet residential area, which makes it even more bizarre. Methinks there must be serious threats against the Prez.
    Will give it another try tomorrow when Obama is on his way out of the city.
