Hollywood, the land of fruits, nuts and flakes, While these ingredients might make for a good cereal they certainly don't covey logic or common sense. There probably aren't that many places left where the residents are still gullible to fall for the endless stream of lies spewing form our failed and disgraced president.

Obama's only comfort zone is campaigning and fund raising. He is a disaster at policy, governance and management - skills our nation desperately needs in these times.

Money, star power and Hollywood awaited President Barack Obama on a West Coast swing... - Call it what it is a 1% tour. He is a 1%er himself. He neither cares, nor wants anything to do with the likes of the average American. All we can do is supply an unending stream of money for him to addict people to government.

If Obama put as much effort into the Presidency as he does campaigning he might get something done.

The democrats up for re-election are running from this proven loser. When the election is nearing, you won't believe it but NOBODY voted for Obama's signature legislation. Obama is a total failure.

Disgusting that he wouldn't travel 90 miles to Gettsburg with the other living Presidents for the ceremonial Gettsburg address. Probably because Lincoln was a Republican. Yet he finds time to travel to Hollywood.

Say what you will, he must do this to try to compete with the big oil, Koch Bros. money that the GOP lives off of and is indebted to. Big money runs the country on both sides of the aisle. Our system is broken.

Hollywood is the only place that he can do his campaign entertainment bit right now. With a 37% approval rating he is a liability to DFLers with upcoming elections. Al and Amy haven't said boo in a month.
