Social media outlets have been abuzz with the latest news that President Barack Obama at Redwood City’s . He’ll be attending two fundraisers earlier in the afternoon, one in Palo Alto’s Garden Court Hotel and another at a philanthropic couple’s home in
Atherton, but end the night in Redwood City.

Many residents expressed excitement at the President’s impending arrival:

@I think it would be great. It would bring a lot of attention to our little community.

@Angie_Coiro Sure, Obama's the Prez, but now he's REALLY hitting the big time: playing #redwoodcity's @FoxTheatre!

@editingwhiz Big local news: President Obama Coming to Fox Theatre in Redwood City May 23

@Gaga_NEXT NEW!... President Obama to Rally in Redwood City… pls RT


However, some were less than enthusiastic:

@LittleOzzie77 great! Just what we need. More traffic issues in downtown. No one cares about this fool anymore!


When asked if residents were attending the rally, residents on Facebook responded:

“Heck no...way too expensive......but I am hoping to catch a glimpse of his Limo :-)”

“No thanks, much better things to do with my hard-to-come by money.

Trying to figure out how my local business (Chain Reaction Bicycles) can benefit from the "free publicity"... but it should be fun to have a major event (whether you're for or against the guy, it's pretty big for RC and will put the Fox Theater back on the map) in our sleepy little town. :-)

Not sure how Jennifer D'amico decided all those things about me, she assumes to much.The point is the media has major control on voters. this is another great example, it's about people who just voted for Obama in 08 and they don't even know what and who they are voting for, really shows how media can help sway voters, http://youtu.be/e_JJLLfTR8 I honestly I didn't know who Barney Frank was ooops, but funny how everybody knows who has a pregnant teenage daughter(at the time of last election.)

How intelligent! Does that mean we should vote for Romney? Regressive vs Progressive. 'Nuff said.

Is that all you got? Yawn.

Jennifer Tegnerud, apparently you didn't really read the comment I posted. I said absolutely nothing about you at all. I simply stated that the picture you posted a link to was false and in all reality it has not one thing to do with what the article is about. Oh and I also stated that the cost of your garbage bill has nothing to do with Obama either (although I guess it would be more convenient to blame him for everything) the blame belongs to Recology, you know the company that picks up the trash. I said not one word about Barney Frank. And I'm way too young to have a pregnant teenage daughter, especially at the time of the last election. Weird how the conversation/discussion went there.
