On my drive back from RainCamp in Charlotte last fall, Obama was in our area speaking for a NOWjobless 5th District Congressman.....traffic was paralized for 3 hours and the OUSTED congressman has not paid his share of the city/county police overtime as agreed...UNAWARE real estate agents were STUCK in traffic for 3 hours and they posted about it on their Fb pages from their iphones

ABC NEWS- President Barack Obama arrived in Los Angeles on Monday to attend a pair of star-studded fundraisers for his re-election campaign.

President Obama arrived at Los Angeles International Airport about 4:30 p.m., then boarded Marine One from LAX to the Westwood area.

The visit, his second since September, undoubtedly meant traffic tie-ups on the Westside during the afternoon commute. City leaders warned commuters to be prepared for rolling closures on some of the main thoroughfares throughout the city.

Drivers on the Westside had to practice a little extra patience while the commander in chief rolled into Hancock Park in his motorcade.

The president first attend a $35,800-a-plate dinner at the home of Hollywood producer James Lassiter. Will Smith, who starred in Lassiter's film "Hitch," and wife Jada Pinkett Smith were among those co-hosting the event. Former Laker Magic Johnson was also in attendance.

Before the fundraiser, President Obama stopped at Roscoe's House of Chicken 'n Waffles in the Mid-City area, where he ordered for himself and several aides. His order included the No. 9 - the "Country Boy" - which comes with three wings and a waffle.

"Roscoe's, you know, sometimes you get a yearning every two, three to six months, so Obama is like us," said Princess Pope, who was at the restaurant at the time.

Joined by Rep. Karen Bass (D-Los Angeles), the president greeted diners in each booth, including shaking hands with a boy.

After the first fundraiser, he traveled to the nearby home of Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith for an event organized by the Futuro Fund, a group of Latino Obama supporters from across the nation. "Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria was among the co-hosts. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was also expected to attend.

Tickets for the event started at $5,000.

"I think our votes are worth his attention," said Beverly Hills resident Robert Smith. "I think he wants to go a little Hollywood. I just saw the Clinton thing at the Hollywood Bowl the other day. I like it, politics and Hollywood should definitely mesh."

Not everyone was happy with President Obama's approach to raising funds.

"Isn't it amazing that he can rail against the rich and then ask for $35,000 for people to come have dinner with him? It's the height of hypocrisy," said Ron Greeno of Hancock Park.

The president was expected to raise $4.3 million over the next three days.

More delays will be likely Tuesday morning in the Burbank and Cahuenga Pass area as the president visits NBC studios for an interview with Jay Leno

There is nothing worse than trying to show properties when a huge event is happening somewhere that causes traffic jams. I try to stay up on all of the events here but every so often something happens that causes traffic where there was not supposed to be a problem and it is very frustrating. I am glad you were not out with buyers that day!! Sounds like a mess! And the money raised for these campaigns.....I think I would vote for someone who took his or her money and put it toward the national debt!!

Many residents do not REALIZE that the federal government does not pay for the LOCAL security for these events.  IF the event was DESIGNATED as campaign related * the campaign would pay for the additional costs so using AF1 and local security keeps those costs off the campaign books!

The man is a non-stop campaign machine. He bought $1.1 million bus to campaign in, errrr....talk about the economy in.

He has done nothing to benefit the US. Now, lets consolidate student loans (gee, election anytime soon?) Bailed out the unions when the car companies went bankrupt (in everything but name). Hmm, payback to the unions?

Given billions to failing green companies that are owned by major donors. Hmm, crony capitalism? Payback to his major donors?

His VP is screaming about rapes, houses burning down and no teaching jobs and they want ANOTHER stimulus package to fix those things. Yet the first two stimulus packages were supposed to do the same thing.

He went on Leno last night - he has time for all things but get the economy on track. David Gregory states that Obama can doing nothing to help the economy so don't blame him. My, he has all of Hollywood and the press in his pocket making excuses for his failures.
