Obama is always looking to be re-elected. This is just an opportunity towards that goal. He doesn't know it is "We the People" and not "Me, the President".

President Obama's visit is great news for our city and the staff of Chamizal National Memorial is the best.

President Brobama is only here to import more Democrats from the latin American countries, example Mexico. Mexico has indeed become the real "Chupacabra" sucking the US dry. This is not great news for El Pisso, this is horrible, Brobama kissing the feet of Calderon.

Couldn't agree more. People just be excited that El Pasoans will have a chance to be a part of a Presidential address. I personally cannot wait until tomorrow. This will be a first for me, even as a Repub, I feel honored to be in El Paso, at the Chamizal, listen to Obama. I may not support him 80 percent of the time but he you can't beat this...better than a Diablos, Miner or John Cook.

To all those about to complain or complaining, shut up! Nobody cares about your whining or your two cents comments.

If you dislike the President, go get a poster board and marker and go voice your opinion at him directly now that he is coming.

"People just be excited that El Pasoans will have a chance to be a part of a Presidential address." I agree with you on this.

I will be there with bells on. This President has balls the size of Church bells and I cannot wait to see how he carries them. Hopefully he will just issue an executive order while here granting full citizenship to all those who have suffered under the oppression of so much totalitarian nonsense.

Can I take a few brewskis with me so I can trash the place up afterwards like at concerts under the stars on sundys in the summer time. Reason would like to take before and after pictures to send the President on be half Silvester Reyes on how we really treat National Monuments in ElPaso Tx.

I bet Reyes is right up the President's butt the whole time! 2 losers together...I wouldn't waste one minute of my time going to see either one of them. We need change, from Obummer and especially the out of touch Reyes. Too bad the people of El Paso don't vote....no one to blame for the situation here but themselves! Oh yeah, I hope Reyes welcomes the people from Jutep...hahahaha. What a joke!

It would be world class ironic if some of the illegal aliens that have been causing such problems for the American citizens of the border states actually caused him and his the same problems. Maybe then he and his sidekick Napolitano won't be able to lie about how safe it is down here any more!

He should come here and demand an apology from Perry on behalf of all Americans for insulting federal aid and then covering 97% of the Texas deficit with federal aid, and asking for federal aid with the fires.

That's gross. Why do you have to post such insulting, offensive thoughts? I don't always agree with either one of them but I would never stoop to saying things like "up the butt" or accuse one man of "touching" another in a private place and I certainly would use racially charged rhetoric like you do. Tampons are a part of life for women but we don't go waving them around in public after they're used. I suggest your keep a little more to yourself as well.

the "up the butt" comment meant to refer to being on his coattails and trying to take credit for being his buddy. If you remember correctly, Reyes endorsed Hillary at Jutep in the primary. Wow! get some education on politics.
