Obama-Geddon...Barack Wreaks Traffic Havoc in LA Today

No offense POTUS, but your visits to LA cause more traffic than an actual revamp of the 405 coined Car-maggedon did several years ago.

My PSA of the day is to give anybody who reads this blog fair warning of where you are visiting on Monday, October 24 and Tuesday, October 25, but for those of you who don’t read this you are S.O.L.

Does every important politician’s visits to the Los Angeles area cause this kind of traffic?

Does POTUS wreak havoc in other cities too or is this just the nature of LA Traffic + POTUS = complete traffic nightmares?

I recall one visit where I didn’t have warning and it literally took me 3 hours to go about 1 mile!  POTUS was visiting Century City for a fund raiser and I was on my way home from Beverly Hills to Westwood.  On a good day in traffic, it would take me 30 minutes to go the four miles home.  On this day I was diverted off Olympic and ended up going in circles around Century City/Beverlywood because none of my other fellow drivers would let me merge right and go to my detour route.

After 3 hours of this, I literally “surrendered”, found a restaurant to eat dinner and waited for my window to get home (i.e.  the fund raiser started so I had about 2 hours to get home before the same nightmare happened post event).

So stay off the road LA citizens of Hollywood, Studio City, Westside.  And POTUS, I hope reading some “Mean Tweets” on Jimmy Kimmel tonight is worth the traffic nightmare. #ObamaGeddon #ThanksPOTUS

Peace and Love,

Tomato
