Air Force One (no, not that one) is scheduled to land at Long Beach Airport at around 3 p.m. today, where operatives have already reported sightings of curiously-shaped olive-green helicopters, namely one like this one, which will whisk President Obama far above our region's traffic, soon followed by a town hall appearance at Costa Mesa's Orange County Fairgrounds (4 p.m.).
On Thursday, he will make another town hall appearance at Miguel Contreras Learning Complex
in Downtown Los Angeles, visit an Edison International electric vehicle plant in Pomona and later be on some TV show in Burbank.
That we all know. But what exactly will he do in between?
If you contact the White House staff, his whereabouts in between are so far unspecified. Which means the Militant will have an excellent chance to do a
The White House staff and the Secret Service will never confirm (or deny) any of this, but the Militant may or may not take Barack on a militant tour of the city on Thursday.
First of all, the prez has to go incognito. No problem. The Militant has an Obama-sized camo outfit for him to wear, complete with matching camo bandana mask. How will he get around? Well, everyone will assume he will ride the chopper or roam the streets in a motorcade. But (and this may or may not happen due to security concerns), the motorcade can just be a front while the Militant rides around with Barack. After all, it's not like he's never ridden a bike before. Next, the Militant may or may not show The Prez his favorite taco trucks. Or Thai restaurant. Or burger joint. Just as long as he doesn't get the president angry. The Militant is not at liberty to reveal his exact itinerary for hosting El Presidente, of course, but if indeed there is a window in the president's schedule where nothing is publicly accounted for, you'll know exactly who's showing him around town.
