    Sunny and 83°. Pres Obama is playing golf at @AndrewsAirForce. By my count, his 250th round as pres, his 90th at Andrews.
    12:09 PM – 29 Aug 2015

    In a 2009 CBS interview, Pres Obama said he likes golf because he gets to be outside for 6 hours and he doesn’t feel “in the bubble,.:
    Pres. GWBush played only 24 rounds as pres., none after Oct 13, 2003. He felt it inappropriate when US was at war.

    During his 3-day Alaska trip starting tomorrow, Pres Obama will announce restoring Alaskan native name of Denali to Mt. McKinley.
    5:01 PM – 30 Aug 2015

    WH says formally changing the name of Mt. McKinley “recognizes the sacred status of Denali to generations of Alaska Natives.”

    McKinley is the tallest mountain in North America. and is located in the 6-million acre Denali National Park and Preserve.

    Pres Obama leaves tomorrow for Anchorage to attend the US-sponsored GLACIER intl conference on the climate change impact on the Arctic.

    On Tuesday, Pres Obama visits Exit Glacier & takes a boat tour of Kenai Fjords National Park – to view impact of climate change, says WH.

    And on Wednesday, @POTUS visits Dillingham and Kotzebue in Alaska to hear climate change concerns from residents.

    • Does anyone consider all the small tourist businesses and others who now need new brochures, knickknacks, etc. Expense! Not to mention reprinting atlases, books, maps…

  3. More details:

    Schedule for the Week of August 31, 2015

    On Monday, the President will travel to Anchorage, Alaska. While in Anchorage, the President will participate in a roundtable with Alaska Natives and address the Global Leadership in the Arctic: Cooperation, Innovation, Engagement and Resilience (GLACIER) Conference. GLACIER will convene foreign ministers from Arctic nations and key non-Arctic states with scientists, policymakers, and stakeholders from Alaska and the Arctic region to discuss how climate change is reshaping the Arctic, increase global awareness of how Arctic climate change is affecting the rest of the world, and identify individual and collective actions to address these challenges.

    On Tuesday, the President will travel to the Seward area, where he will hike to Exit Glacier, participate in a boat tour of Kenai Fjords National Park and have the opportunity to view the effects of climate change firsthand.

    On Wednesday, the President will travel to Dillingham, Alaska, where he will meet with local fisherman and families. The President will then travel to Kotzebue, Alaska, where he will deliver remarks. In the evening, the President will depart Alaska en route Washington, DC. Further details on the President’s travel will be available in the coming days.

    On Thursday, the President will attend meetings at the White House.

    On Friday, the President will host King Salman bin Abd alAziz of Saudi Arabia at the White House. The President and the King will discuss a range of issues and focus on ways to further strengthen the bilateral partnership, including our joint security and counter-terrorism efforts.

  4. When can a liberal pro Obama individual see or meet the President in Anchorage? I am extremely disappointed in Alaska’s negative response to the President’s visit. I would love to let the President know that not ALL of Alaska is red/republican. I wish the President could meet those of us who have always supported h

    • berg – because he’s not campaigning, so no rally for you and other supporters.

      You may want to contact the Dem orgs in your area or even call your reps. Sometimes they have special events or gatherings at the airport for small welcome/goodbye crowds to wave the flag at him.

      It’s so rare a President visits Alaska I’m surprised they don’t give the citizens an opportunity for a public event somewhere.

    • And he won’t lift a finger to address the murder and mayhem in the nation’s inner city ghettos, where the black on black murder rate is 10 times the murder rate outside of the ghettos. He will attack and publicly humiliate the police trying to do their jobs and inflame the war on police in these very same ghettos. Obama will do nothing to clean up these ghettos of drug dealers, do nothing to take away the weapons in these ghettos, do nothing to protect the innocent people living in these ghettos from the never ending wave of crime they must endure.

      Instead, Obama flies to Alaska to rename a mountain. It’s just a wonder he didn’t name the mountain after himself. But there’s still time.

      There’s an old saying: some Presidents leave a mark, and some Presidents leave a stain.

  5. Climate change…what we need is leadership change. Hope NYC’s DiBlasio tags along, and they both freeze their buns off up yonda
