White House confirms upcoming Obama visit to SF

As previously reported here, the White House now confirms President Barack Obama will return to the Bay Area next week to raise money for his fellow Democrats.

“On Friday, the President will travel to the Seattle, WA area to attend an event for Senator Patty Murray and the Washington State Democratic Party and a DNC event. Later in the day, the President will travel to the San Francisco, CA area for a DNC event. The President will remain overnight in San Francisco,” a White House official said. “On Saturday, October 9, the President will attend a DNC event and travel to the Los Angeles area for DNC and DSCC events. Further details about the President’s travel to Washington and California will be made available in the coming days.”

No comment from the White House on the president’s potential “come to Yeezus” moment.

    Thanks for the warning!

    From President down to state assembly, both parties, the constant need to devote so much time and energy to fund raising has to be depressing. Not what they had in mind when they got into politics.

    Oh, I don’t know.

    Leland Yee comes to mind.

    As do Duke Cunningham, Rod Blagojevich and god knows how many others. But that’s “fund raising” of a different sort, not for campaign coffers.

    I really don’t want Kayne West and his family/ in laws in San Jose, CA. I have been told that I look like Khloe, but I do not take it at all as a positive compliment or role model, but at least she keeps it real.
