President Obama to visit Arizona next week

Let the screaming begin...

From AZCentral.com -
President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha plan to spend the day in Arizona on Sunday, Aug. 16, White House officials said today.
The Obamas will visit the Grand Canyon and Phoenix, said Adam Abrams, western regional press spokesman for the White House. Details of the president's public appearances are not yet available but will be released closer to the trip.

The Republicans in Arizona (and as you may have noticed, there are a few here :) ) will scream.

If not over the audacity of one of his programs to help the average American or some of their patented feigned outrage at some manufactured slight, then over the fact that someone who isn't an old white Republican dares to occupy the Oval Office.

Still, the Reps' cries will be thoroughly drowned out by the rather loud expressions of indignation that will reverberate across the state (and country) from the denizens of Tucson once they realize that President Obama would rather visit a big hole in the ground than the Old Pueblo.

One point in defense of his choice of tourist destinations -

Average August high temperature at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon in August - 82F

Average August high temperature in Tucson - 97F


Any other questions? No? Class dismissed.... :)))


Later...

EH-hem, Mr. Craig...Tucson is STILL an average 10 degrees cooler than Phoenix, the air is cleaners, and a LOT of his supporters live here. Do I feel slighted? Yes. Yes I do. But maybe the throngs of citizens who turn out to show the President some love will shame the legislature and remind people that change IS possible. SO...you go on ahead and gloat all you like. I can take it. OH, yes I can. ;)

Yes, Tucson *is* cooler than Phoenix, but Phoenix has the VFW convention.

Gloating in progress... :)
