President Obama will be in Southern California on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Air Force One is due to arrive from Phoenix at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday afternoon, and the president is scheduled to tape his appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno in Burbank.
Brendan Buck, spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, wrote a blog post Monday noting an Associated Press report that late-night comics have been having a field day with Obama in the first half of this year. “We’re all for jokes, but with a ‘new normal’ of stagnant wages, rising costs, and persistently high joblessness, there’s little funny about the president’s handling of the economy,” he wrote.
President Obama will spend the night in Los Angeles and then go to Camp Pendleton in San Diego County on Wednesday to visit with military families and deliver remarks to troops, before returning to LAX to head back to Washington.
