This is news? I have memories of traffic jams caused by Dan Quayle, both Bushes and Clinton. That's what happens when the president comes to town. It sure isn't anything new.

The heads up on when and where the traffic congestion will be is appreciated, but hardly worth a significant news article.

Obowmao is a disgrace to the office. 99% of what he does is Golf, Campaign and take vacations. The other 1% he spends smoking and snorting coke.

When I voted for the guy, I didn't realize that I was voting for someone who would spend a good portion of his time - and Federal $$- campaigning for other Democrats.

Maybe my memory is faulty or maybe GW just spent so much of his time at his ranch in Texas that he couldn't be bothered with campaigning for Republicans, but did this sort of thing take place during the last administration?

Isn't LA always in a traffic jam?

He certainly didn't cause any problem in Philly when he was there.

Now Bill clinton was different. I almost got shot (according to the SS) for having the audacity to be working when his motorcade went by.

It used to be on the conservative side but from what I hear that has all changed to the point that students have to spew the liberal rhetoric in a lot of the classes to get passing grades.

I will put in a memo, from now on, all potential news stories will have to be approved by you. From now on, only the illustrious and all knowing Diller will be able to deem a story "signigicant news."

Oh. You must have been one of the suckers who believed that Obama would be better than other politicians. Sorry Suckers! Just more of the same self serving, ego maniacal crap. Don't feel too bad I feel for Obama's nonsense too.
