President Barack Obama is visiting Florida this week, making Jacksonville Naval Air Station his first stop today.
Air Force One is scheduled to land at the base at 2:45 p.m., with Obama addressing the troops at 3:15 p.m.
The event is not open to the public.
Immediately afterward, Obama will fly to Miami, where he is set to headline a fund-raiser for congressional Democrats. He’s expected to visit Tampa on Tuesday.
After all, it doesn’t take long to tell the troops “f**k you”! He could have sent an E-mail, though, and saved a lot of taxpayer dollars.
Update: I’ve talked to a sailor on duty at NAS during Obama’s visit. He and other members of the military were completely underwhelmed by the honor and join me in wishing he’d keep his sorry ass in the White House actually working on improving the country instead of flying around giving excuses.
