Austin Says 'Thanks Obama!' for All the Traffic
But Pres. Obama's visit to Austin today – and its effect on morning traffic – has more than a few Twitter users directing their gridlocked ire at the president. To the surprise of no one stuck in traffic, #ThanksObama is trending in Austin this morning.
Here's a roundup of what's out there:
So, E. Riverside is terrible traffic, but Congress is totally clear? THANKS OBAMA.— (((Nicole Pank))) (@nicolepank) July 10, 2014
Couldn't get to work today. THANKS OBAMA. (Like, actually, since you're here in Austin.)— David Bass (@doctordake) July 10, 2014
This morning's delays and detours seem to be easing. But once the president concludes his speech at The Paramount this afternoon, expect a whole new collection of closures.
