President Barack Obama Set to Land in Bitter Enemy Terrority--Orange County

Under intense security, Air Force One and Barack Obama landed late this afternoon at Los Angeles International Airport for the president's ninth trip to Southern California and, during a series of fund-raising events, touted his administration's accomplishments, including a repeal of "Don't Ask; Don't Tell."

Obama also blasted Republicans for favoring the ultra-rich.

Republicans are working legislatively to make sure "just a few do well," the president told a Los Angeles crowd including actor George Clooney, according to a White House media pool report provided to OC Weekly by Michael Finnegan of the Los Angeles Times.

The attack on the rich is, of course, ironic because following tonight's private parties with LA's richest residents, the Democratic president will travel for another fundraiser on Thursday morning in Orange County's most wealthy, elite oceanfront neighborhood: obscenely Republican Corona del Mar.

According to White House reports, the president is expected to leave his LA hotel, the same one where singer Whitney Houston recently died, about mid-morning on Thursday and fly his Marine One helicopter to Orange County in advance of a motorcade trip to a private home in Corona del Mar.

For those of you who don't live here, know this: OC historically has been a hotbed of right-wing activism that considers liberals worthy of unrelenting ridicule. In addition to our fine citizenry, we have Holocaust deniers, mischievous grannies, bizarre anti-gay fanatics, big-haired televangelists, angry white supremacists, Bible-thumping closet gay pedophiles and foaming-at-the-mouth Mexican haters.

Taitz: POTUS is a communist plant
For example, within weeks of Bill Clinton moving into the White House in 1993, bitter Newport Beach residents took "Impeach Clinton" banners to the beach during family outings. This is also a place where the broadcasting of Lee Harvey Oswald's explosive, fatal head shot to President John F. Kennedy still wins happy cheers. Orly Taitz, a local dentist, is a relentless leader in the national movement to expose Obama as an African-born communist plant.

(Trivia: Oswald was stationed as a U.S. Marine in Orange County before he killed Kennedy.)

With Obama in OC, the U.S. Secret Service wisely grounds all local helicopters to insure that none of the county's pilots do something stupid.
The county has moved slightly to the left in recent years, though. In the 2008 election Obama pulled off a near miracle: he almost beat Republican John McCain here. Arguably, OC's most powerful member of Congress is Anaheim's Loretta Sanchez, the lone Democrat in the county's congressional delegation that includes a shameless freak, Dana Rohrabacher--the plump, career politician who can't surf but hilariously calls himself the "Surfin' Congressman."

(Note: Perhaps Rohrabacher's disingenuous PR spin is nothing more than . . . Internet surfing.)

For the traveling, fly-by press corps, Corona del Mar has made news on the racial insensitivity front in recent years after a Newport Beach city councilman espoused public policies to discourage all Latinos from visiting local public beaches.

And, of course, there is this: A steakhouse located just blocks after from the president's fundraising event in Corona del Mar settled a lawsuit after an employee repeatedly disgraced a loyal African American patron by calling him "McStinkyNigger" and "McNigShit" on bill receipts.

During the president's last OC visit, the Secret Service must have been worried about potential attacks. The extraordinary protective service had a whopping five helicopters--including two Blackhawk combat helicopters--fly from LA to OC. To trick the public, Obama didn't board any of the three Marine One helicopters in the fleet flying south. He rode on one of the Blackhawk's that was flying in a flanking position.

Well, actually I was shocked that Obama only lost Orange County by 4 points, so some of the old ring-wingers most be dieding or like Chuck Devore moved to Texas. Maybe, when Jan and Paul dies TBN will moved home to Ok well Paul and Jan came from.

Aryans kill me. That recessive gene they carry (lack of pigment) makes them think they're superior. They're 2 genes from albinism! Promote your violence and keep cheating in the game. None of you have the balls to go into a black neighborhood and promote that shit face to face straight up. Stay in OC and keep up the unhappy housewives/drag queens spreading those fishy thighs.

Muxley, you can't surf, and Rohrabacher does, and he the Congressman and your not.  You should stick to what you know best, writing about homosexual stuff, and marijuana.

Hi again Congressman Rohrabacher:

It's pathetic enough that you've adopted this deceitfully inaccurate Sock Puppet identity to respond to me. But I understand your fear. What would the Orange County Young Republicans think If they knew the truth about you?

Google: "Jeffrey Ray Nielsen," Dana's close, gay pedophile buddy, to understand my point.

Then let's split the country -- give all of SoCal to Mexico. I'm ready to head to Oregon or North of the Bay Area as soon as that happens.

Hola again cowardly OC Congressman Rohrabacher! Put the shot glass down and listen. What only the 2 of us have known until now is that in person you like to slaughter my name by calling me "Mucksley" or "Mockley." In your 60's, you can't help hiding your pathetic nature... ;) How many campaign contributions this month have you diverted to your own bank account? And please note that I put my real name of everything I write and you, though a congressman, are ball-less. Have another shot of Tequila and see if you can respond even if you feel you must employ a new sock puppet name.

Hola Sock Puppet! You constantly claim I am a nobody, but everyday you read all of my articles and supply comments (even if you use different names). You've even thought it necessary to slaughter my name. For all of your efforts, I feel special. Thanks!

Sock Puppet? I must admit I was hoping your reply to me would mention why you made such a poor photo choice, oh well. I stumbled upon this site, and now I'm stumbling off...good luck in all you do.

Now lets try for a civil discussion 

Arguably, OC's most powerful member of Congress is Anaheim's Loretta Sanchez, the lone Democrat in the county's congressional delegation that includes a shameless freak,Dana Rohrabacher

I would have to agree and say yes arguably indeed... I would put her behind Miller and Royce Campbell and Calvert in the power rankings. Personally Not that I even care for Campbell who is my Congressman and I don't see how Calvert can represent from Rubidoux to San Clemente but gerrymandering is a bitch! 

BUT Sanchita is a member of the Majority and yet she doesn't even chair a committee. And is on Armed Services and Homeland Security

WhereasCalvert - Budget,  Appropriations, and DefenseRoyce - Financial services and Foreign Affairs Campbell - Financial Services and Budget Miller - Financial Services and Infrastructure

Good comment. All that's true, but Loretta has the president's ear...

What is stopping all the Liberals from paying more taxes? The last I heard, you can make millions in Hollywood. How about giving some to me? Or better yet, stop working so someone else can make some money in this depressing  economy. How about forced retirement on anyone worth more than a million dollars? GET A CLUE PEOPLE!!! Hard work should be rewarded and not punished.

Let's see Obama spout his "Make everyone pay their fair share" BS to "Orange County's most wealthy, elite oceanfront neighborhood" of Corona del Mar and see if the shit sticks to the wall or slides to the floor. Socialism is great until you run out of other people's money.

As a taxpayer, I see his "whopping five helicopters" as quite a waste.

Oh, and as a side note, liberals  are always, ALWAYS "worthy of unrelenting ridicule!"

" This is also a place where the broadcasting of Lee Harvey Oswald's explosive, fatal head shot to President John F. Kennedy still wins happy cheers."

Really? When exactly? In fact, when was the last time the JFK assassination was  even 'broadcast'.

Really man, seek professional help.

Hola SP "Mitch Young": I guess you are finally done espousing your whiny, white supremacist ideology in defense of the "McStinkyNigger" receipt conduct--a story contained elsewhere on this website. How many of your co-commenters there appreciated your pro Aryan male superiority assertions?

909Jeff

Have you ever just taken a step back and looked at how you act? 

You write like a angry college freshmen and when anyone dares question you you fly into a tirade and just call names... I mean, you have gone to the white supremacist, aryan card a number of times over the last couple days, and yes, I did say you Blow Joe Cavallo... But really?  White Supremacist?  I mean at least in my case nothing can be further from the truth... Its just cheap and petty and it takes away from the real power of the term. Also it really doesn't help with your credibility.  

I almost feel bad for you.... NO, I do feel bad for you, because not one single time have I seen you meet any line of questioning with any semblance of tact or professionalism.  I'm not sure if its just arrogance... Do you get done writing and think that its such a good piece that there is no way anyone can disagree with you? 

Well I hope you can find some sense of security one day and not feel like you have to lash out like a cornered animal.  

Gustavo and I are a perfect example of how a commenter and a writer can eventually come around to find a mutual respect... We don't always see eye to eye and I may disagree with him from time to time but we disagree with respect. I no longer call him a Chismoso or a charlatan and likewise he doesn't call me a Know nothing and a gabacho or a pendejo anymore.

the world isn't out to get you.. Nor are the black helicopters.

"How many of your co-commenters there appreciated your pro Aryan male superiority assertions?"

I know you have trouble keeping things straight in that disordered mind, but the 'pro-Aryan male' comment was on the "black female sheriff deputy sucks of the white 'neo-nazi' story". And if you can't tell that it was tongue in cheek (so to speak), you have a bad case of taking yourself way to seriously.

Having said that, given the 70% black illegitimacy rate, our mahogany deputy probably would be better off with the 'neo-nazi'. Whatever their faults, they generally take care of their kids.

BTW here's a Google search for aryan +mitch site:.ocweekly.com

You'll see that most of the 'Aryan's' are posted by one "R. Scott Moxley". It's like you can't stop thinking about blond youths in uniforms.
