Turns out President Obama isn't just after our money. From what we've read, the president is already up and prepping for his morning policy talk in San Jose where he's expected to explain how Obamacare will give all of you some medical coverage, for a change.

According to ABC News, Obama's speech will start at 8:50 a.m. at the Fairmont Hotel in downtown, and as you can surmise, the Keystone protesters are already stacked up.

Of course, Obama isn't going to come to the Bay Area without his ATM card: Last night, the president made a quick stop to Sun Microsystems co-founder Vinod Khosla in Portola Valley where he raised about $900,000 by 9 p.m.

After collecting his cash, the presidential motorcade passed through the South Bay, skipping over the money-hungry Republican-loving town of Atherton, and making a stop in Palo Alto for cocktails at he home of Mike and Marci McCue, the co-founders of online social magazine Flipboard. Guests paid $5,000 per person to booze with the president.

But guess what. You don't need that kind of money to drink and confab with the president. Make yourself a Bloody Mary right now and watch him speak later this morning. And of course, you can vent afterward in the comment section below.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
