Obama Cancels Cleveland Visit

Instead of campaigning at Luke Easter Park, the president will visit Louisiana in the wake of Tropical Storm Isaac

President Barack Obama's appearance in Cleveland has been canceled, according to the office of U.S. Rep. Marcia Fudge.

Obama planned to speak at an Monday morning, but has since decided to go to Louisiana in the wake of Tropical Storm Isaac.

"The president is making an abrupt change in his travel schedule," said Belinda Prinz, a spokeswoman for Fudge's office. "What plans he may have to come back to Northeast Ohio, we don't know yet. It's way too early to say."

White House spokesman Jay Carney announced the trip Friday aboard Air Force One as Obama flew to Texas to speak to U.S. service members and their families, The Huffington Post reported.

The president plans on examining damage caused by Isaac this week, seven years after Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans.

To PaulRevere, or should I call you Mr. Know It All. I am well aware of what 211 means. You don't need to educate me as I am already highly educated. Why do you assume when one refers to a term in their comments they need you to give them an FYi? I guess you need that opportunity to make nasty comments. Insecure? Telling the man who lost his home in a disaster to call 211 is like telling everyone to call a certain number and you'll win a million dollars. Think they'll have an easy time getting their call through? Do you understand my analogy? Do you even know what analogy means? Also your joke about gulf/golf falls flat because gulf and golf are pronounced differently. I know how important pronunciation is to you, so I'm surprised you don't know the difference between the two.

Grace, what should Romney have done? What would have liked to see? Is there any response from Romney that would have been acceptable to you?

Grace: Direct your 211 comments to another commentor here. I never said a thing to you about 211. I take a proud bow for my "GOLF" (GO-Loaf) intent. That's how I pronounce it. You see, I'm from another "TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
