obama in college station tomorrow

COLLEGE STATION - The White House announced Friday that President Obama will visit Texas A&M to take part in a presidential forum on community service.

The forum is scheduled for Friday, October 16th, and it will take place at the Bush Presidential Library. The event will be hosted by former President George H.W. Bush.

So far, the White House has not released any details about who can come watch the event.

Below is the press release sent to ABC 40 from the White House:

WASHINGTON, D.C. - On Friday, October 16th, President Barack Obama will hold a Presidential Forum on community service hosted by former President George H.W. Bush and the Points of Light Institute at the George Bush Presidential Library Center on the campus of Texas A&M University. The event builds upon President Obama's "United We Serve" call to service challenging all Americans to help lay a new foundation for growth in this country by engaging in sustained, meaningful community service. It will also celebrate the contributions of more than 4,500 Daily Point of Light award winners and honor President Bush's legacy of service and civic engagement.

The Daily Point of Light Award - created by President Bush in 1989 - honors individuals and volunteer groups around the country who are helping to meet critical needs in their communities and creating change every day and has a bi-partisan presidential legacy over the past two decades.

President Obama's United We Serve call to service began on June 22nd and runs through the National Day of Service and Remembrance on September 11th. Service projects marking the eight year anniversary of 9/11 will take place today in all 50 states, and will include over a dozen Cabinet Secretaries and high ranking government officials. Projects range from food drives and home repairs to neighborhood cleanups and disaster preparation activities.


LET THE PROTESTERS COMMENCE!

actually after calculating at 15mpg (really i have no idea what i get)
it would be very , very close , down to the last couple gallons.
I really don't want to push it that far.
but yeah it's a k5 , on 38's, running at 2500 rpm down the freeway th350.
So yeah shitty.
plus the risk of something breaking, which could certainly happen on an alternative fuel vehicle...

Seriously, if 1963 happened again this country would be completely up a creek.








OK OK OK, it's already up a creek without a paddle, but now you would be going into a category 5 rapid.

You never know. Who Needs 8 is a faggie, and he's got Obama's dick so far down his throat, he's flossing his teeth with pubic hair.

A&M is probably the most conservative major university in the country. Could be interesting.
