— President Barack Obama will return to the Triangle next week, the White House said Wednesday.

Obama will be at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Tuesday for an official event, meaning it's not a campaign stop, a White House official said. Details of his visit haven't been released.

The president last visited the Triangle in September, when he promoted his job-creation proposal in a speech at North Carolina State University.

He has visited North Carolina five times in the past year, most recently pushing for improved fuel-efficiency at a Freightliner truck plant in Mount Holly last month.

    I quite simply cannot afford 4 more yrs of "Mr. Hope and Change." I never had any hope in him and have very little change left. He has to go.

    Why are you failing and why is it the governments fault? LOL I have to hear this. I make $43K a year. I just bought a new house, new Camaro, and my savings has a new demical place. I dont credit Obama. I credit myself for hard work and personal responsibility. Try it instead of placing blame on everyone JUST LIKE OBAMA!!!

    "Zorg, Ted is more respectable, talented and level headed than most politicians, yet I dont see you calling them, or the prez, a pedophile. What's up with that?"

    Because the President isn't a pedophile and Ted is (ask Courtney Love). Respectable? He's also an admitted draft dodger. Talented? One hit over 35 years ago. His music stinks, basically. Level headed? I've heard some of his disgusting in concert rants. Level headed doesn't come to mind.

    "Why does he keep comming here? He should be meeting Ted Nugent for lunch!! I'm sure they would have a lot to talk about."

    What on earth would the President have to talk about with a deranged, untalented pedophile?
