President Obama is planning to fly our (as in yours and mine) Boeing 747 and the massive support systems and entourage needed for such an excursion, from Washington, DC to Oregon, to memorialize politicize the victims of last week’s mass murder at Umpqua Community College. It appears that he may not be welcome. From Mediaite.com:
Monday, October 5th, 2015: David Jaques, publisher of the Roseburg Beacon, told Bill O’Reilly tonight President Obama should not come to the Oregon town after he politicized the tragic shooting last week.
When President Obama spoke about the shooting, he bemoaned the frequency of shootings and made the case that because allowing this to continue is a “political choice,” the issue should be politicized. Well, the president is reportedly traveling to Roseburg, but Jaques made it clear to O’Reilly plenty of residents would not be on board with that.
He said Obama’s “not welcome” in Roseburg because people think he will “grandstand for political purposes.”
“He wants to come to our community,” Jaques said, “and stand on the corpses of our loved ones and make some kind of political point.”

WesternJournalsim.com has just noted that a “Defend Roseburg Facebook page is making a serious attempt to roll-up the welcome mat for the president. The Facebook page reads”:
The anointed one his majesty king 0bama and the White House have announced a Friday arrival in Roseburg, Oregon in the wake of Oct 1st’s horrific tragedy at UCC.
Polarizing as usual, Mr 0bama has insisted on politicizing the event as a conduit for increased executive orders on gun control via means of his pen, and his phone.
This blatant disrespect of the victims families, the community and the town of Roseburg, Mr 0bama’s administration is flying not just the 747 that is airforce one to Oregon, but a three helicopter team of Sikorsky’s that make up HMX-1, known as Marine one to travel to Roseburg at the taxpayers expense.
We need a lot of people. Please come show your support for Roseburg, not the little man who has no respect for the constitution.
