Last week I was treated to a visit by Veep Biden in my neck of Ohio who ensnarled traffic the entire day to the dismay of thousands of residents.
Tomorrow, March 22, Columbus will be treated to a visit by President Obama at the OSU campus and he will be speaking on his energy policy, which is *everything is on the table except oil, coal, natural gas and nuclear.*
President Barack Obama will visit the Ohio State Columbus campus on Thursday (March 22) where he will deliver remarks about American Energy to a crowd at the Recreation and Physical Activity Center (RPAC).
The event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required and because of space considerations, only a limited number are available. Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning at noon on Wednesday (March 21) for students and 6 p.m. for the public at the Ohio Union. Tickets are not for sale or re-sale.
Doors to the event will open at 2:15 p.m. on Thursday; those attending should allow sufficient time for parking and security, and enter through the main RPAC doors only. For security reasons, attendees should not bring bags and should limit personal items. No signs or banners are permitted. All attendees will go through airport-like security.
Parking will be affected by the fact that the OHSAA state basketball tournaments will be taking place throughout the day at the Schottenstein Center, and by construction in the area.
But this is probably NOT the headline Obama would have wished for the day before his visit:
Gas was $3.99 today all around Toledo.
Welcome to Ohio, Mr. President. Let’s see if there will be anyone protesting your visit here like there was to be in Oklahoma and New Mexico today over your failed energy policies and that little desert lizard you want to add to the endangered species list.
