Obama to visit USC on Friday: Here's the traffic plan

President Obama will speak at USC on Friday at 1:30 pm.  

The president's last visit to Los Angeles caused traffic snarls, which the LAPD, the California Highway Patrol, the Department of Transportation and the U.S. Secret Service are attempting to avoid this time. Here is a list of street closures for Friday:

Martin Luther King Boulevard will be closed between Figueroa Street and Vermont Avenue to through traffic from 9:30 a.m. to 11:25 a.m. and to all traffic from 11:25 a.m. until 2:50 p.m.
Vermont Avenue will be closed between Martin Luther King Boulevard and Exposition Boulevard to through traffic, 9:30 to 11:25 a.m., and all traffic, 11:25 a.m. to 2:50 p.m.
Figueroa Street will be closed between Martin Luther King Boulevard and 39th Street to through traffic, 9:30 to 11:25 a.m., and all traffic from 11:25 a.m. until 2:50 p.m.
Exposition Boulevard will be closed to all traffic between Vermont Avenue and Figueroa from 11:25 a.m. until 2:50 p.m.

The rally at USC is aimed at energizing voters for the midterm election. Ozomatli and Jamie Foxx are scheduled to perform at the rally, which has moved to a larger space on the campus to accommodate crowds. Democratic candidate for governor Jerry Brown and Sen. Barbara Boxer also will be in attendance.

SUCK IT UP, liberal loving LA!! Overwhelmingly you supported this buffoon, and his CA sidekick Pelosi. Now enjoy the gridlock as they come to LA to recharge their egos! Of course the cost goes WAY beyond your inconvenience. Whenever our Dear Leader flies, he uses TWO Air Force One planes (one being a decoy), and TWO presidential limos (for the same purpose) along with an army of staff and secret service agents. Before he arrives, everything, including the presidential helicopter, gets flow in on C-5 Galaxy or C-17 Globemaster cargo planes. And guess who gets to pay for it all! When this idiot should be sitting in the oval office using his supposed big brain to get this country back on track, he's campaigning across the US on YOUR dime! Suck it up, peasants!
