Comrade leader causes massive traffic jam – LA drivers pissed
In yet another display of imperial majesty, our dear comrade leader attended a fundraiser in Los Angeles causing a massive rush hour traffic jam as streets along his motorcade route were blocked for hours. Even pedestrian traffic was disrupted as the entire area was cordoned off. Needless to say, many LA residents were pissed off at being pissed on by our dear comrade leader.

The massive traffic jam that resulted from President Obama’s motorcade and speech Monday night in Hancock Park is prompting calls for an investigation from some residents, who say they were caught in traffic for hours. Obama was only in L.A. for a few hours, but his presence caused numerous streets to be blocked off.
Residents reported that commutes and errands that typically took minutes turned into hours-long ordeals. One particular complaint was that streets remained blocked for hours — even when Obama was inside TV producer John Wells’ Hancock Park home at a fund-raiser.”What has occurred is way beyond reasonable and can only be described as negligent,” L.A. resident Kevin McCarthy said in an e-mail to The Times. “If it isn’t my story, currently evolving, of beginning my 1 mile journey home at 5pm and at 7:50pm now being 3 miles from home with no viable idea of how to get closer, it should be about the two sirens-wailing ambulances I have witnessed stuck in this unnecessary gridlock.”
The Los Angeles Fire Department reported no delays for emergency vehicles. But the LAPD heard an earful from angry motorists.
For someone who claims to be “just one of us” it would be nice if, just once, he acted like it. Hey LA, how’s that hopey changey thing working for you?
