Here's how to get free tickets to President Obama's speech at Union Depot on Wednesday

President Barack Obama will deliver remarks at St. Paul's Union Depot around 2 p.m. Wednesday afternoon "to announce a new competition encouraging investments to create jobs and restore infrastructure as part of the President's Year of Action," a White House statement says.

POTUS's speech is free and open to the public, and you can get tickets this morning.

Here, directly from the statement, is how to do so:
General Public tickets will be distributed on Monday, February 24, beginning at 10:00 AM in Suite 120 of Union Depot.

One ticket per person will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to limited space, the White House will only be able to distribute a limited number of tickets.
If you're able to snag one, know that backpacks, banners, bottles, and just about every other sort of personal item is banned from the event, and that attendees will be subjected to "airport-like security."

Obama's visit comes less than a week after Vice President Joe Biden swung through Minneapolis for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser at the Bachelor Farmer, the swank downtown restaurant owned by Gov. Mark Dayton's sons.

What free stuff is he promising this time in order to increase his free loading dependent base?

Well dear, it was a sarcastic question. An Amarican should not have to buy a ticket to hear their president speak in the first place.

Free. They're just trying to limit excess numbers of people.

Tickets are all gone, FREE is the liberals favorite word, after all.

I'm not an Obama fan and I'm not a fan of the other side. None of them do any good. That's why none of you win at arguments or agree on anything. Government won't save you.

Go home, which means Chicago and out of the Whitehouse.

This is true, but he doesn't have to sign things he finds controversial. Monsanto Protection Act, Indefinite detention clause, authorization of the purchase of billions of rounds of hollow-point tips by the DHS, etc should not have been signed by Obama according to his own platform while on the campaign trail.

Don't give the guy more credit than he deserves. Things have to be signed by him to become law. He has personally signed plenty of legislation to make a person scratch their head. Also, always judge a person by their actions and not the color of their skin. If the color of his skin is going to be his place in history, that is unfortunate.

No, I just know that I can't realistically attribute all of the shortcomings of the federal government to one man, and that people blame him for much more than what he is likely responsible. The government is a big entity, to pin it all on one person is plainly silly and shortsighted.

This may blow your mind, Tucker. Some people are neither Republicans or Democrats.

It isn't so black and white. Some of us were promised something else but got just another Bush in office, offering some crumbs to appease people and making him seem slightly better than a Bush. Congress isn't holding his pen. He is. He has signed plenty of bs legislation, himself. Don't give the guy a free pass just because he ran as a democrat.

Don't forget the people who can see he is just as bad as the George Bushs. They aren't republicans, but they don't have the same rah rah feelings as some do to someone just because they ran as a democrat.

Ignorance is flowing rampant here I see. First of all the tickets are free, no need to charge for them as he is no longer running and would not need the funds. That being said..clearly most of you have chosen to ignor the fact that our "DO NOTHING" congress is made up of the majority being REPUGS..but that's ok we'll blame the president for it all and of course be disrespectful in doing so. Hmm yeah i would much rather have GW or no better yet Michelle Bachman cuz she's sane and would do a much better job!!! Right??? Honestly people grow up..but we do live in a free country and yes you are entitled to your opinion..thank the lord it isn't that of the majority of the US population. God help us if we go backwards the next time around!!

The only people who think Obama is the same as Bush are rich stupid privileged assholes who don't know what Obamacare is.   Obama passed universal healthcare which gave healthcare to millions of people who never had it before.  No other President has been able to accomplish this.   The only reason you don't give him credit for it is because you are some rich asshole who has had Daddy's healthcare his whole fucking life.  Obama has saved millions of lives with Obamacare and you are whining about the fucking farm bill?   Assholes like you are the absolute worst.  There are sick kids who can't see a doctor in this world.  Obama has made millions less of those kids who can't see a doctor yet you want to whine about Monsanto?    Seriously thank goodness your name is Noel so the average person can tell you are a complete fucking asshole the second you introduce yourself.

@WhiteMatt   When the self-satisfied, weak-minded, racist, obligatory conservative troll decides to comment on a story like this, are you selected through an audition or do you get picked randomly?

Hey dummy, don't know if you're aware, but the prez and senate are dems. The house is repub. That means dems have been in control for all this shit. At this point, the country couldn't get much worse. Republicans wouldn't have really done any better, but it's partisan retards like you who want to point blame instead of come up with solutions. The democrat/republican propaganda paradigm is a made up game for fools. You play, you lose. Period.

@MicheleBachmann "Saved Millions of Lives"  Heeheheh.   We have more uninsured than when this subsidized mess began.

@mingtran  Once again we have the classic ming debate.  Is he stupid or a liar?    Normal people remember the economy crashing at the end of Bush presidency yet ming attempts to blame it on Obama.   


Facts about Obama's economy:


1) The Dow opened at 8,279.63 on the morning Obama took the oath of office and currently sits at 16,288.38.   


2)  The economy has added more jobs since Obama took office than it did in Bush’s entire eight years in office.


3)  Federal spending under Obama has grown faster than inflation, but far more slowly than it did under President Bush.



I can't wait to watch you ignore these verifiable facts in order to push your stupid lies.

@MicheleBachmann It should also be said that your so Angry because you hate the New Media.   The New Media is not filtered through the Liberal lens.  This is why we see the exact same thing covered on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS, MSNBC..........................................all running their stories the same.  They have had to team because the general population can now see differing angles of each subject instead of the same old tired lies.   Hehehehhhe

@MicheleBachmann Glad to see you admit your an asshole.  Now lets move on to more accurate descriptions:

Race Merchant, Hateful Lunatic, close minded propagandist, Global Warming Alarmist, Loser..................................................................................................

@midwestexplorer81 I wish I could laugh.  Those racist guys have threatened my life and cloned my account multiple times.  City Pages doesn't do crap to punish these guys.   Now you see why I'm such an asshole.  Believe it or not I used to mostly crack jokes here or have civil discussions.  City Pages does nothing to clean up the racism, homophobia, sexism, or actual threats.   I'd be a lot more civil if hate speech wasn't allowed on this board.  Honestly I'm trying to be such an asshole that it changes.  They need to ban racism, sexism, homophobia, threats, and I'd be fine with them banning being an asshole.  You'd see a polite Michele from now on.   


P.S. Fuck off.  Those comments are exactly what ming or matt would write.  Those two douchebags never write more than a sentence or two.  I'm long winded.  Notice neither of those fraudulent fucks have a comment on this story.  They comment on every story no matter how little it has to do with Obama.  City Pages won't do shit though.

@midwestexplorer81 Once again some dickhead Republican has cloned my id to make me look bad.  Can't win with facts.  Republicans threaten my life and clone my account all the time.  Shows how pathetic your side is intellectually.

@MicheleBachmann @kurt124Google it.   Plenty of information out there regarding uninsured.    The CBO, your own Gubmint Department stacked with Liberal Economists, project 30 million seniors still uninsured in 20 freaking 22!!!! Now  show me your bullshit lie about "Saving Millions of Lives".   You Liberals are so full of dramatic bullshit.  But of course you always want to "help" people so you seem so compassionate, and then it's ok for your talking points to always be bullshit.  "You can keep your doctor, plan, save costs..."    Only the Low information morons believe these lies.    Why doesnt the Democrat base ever take an accounting of how much "good" they have done?     Oh, because by the time there is another govt program they have the employees they need to keep getting elected.

@kurt124  If that was true you would cite where you got your facts from but you don't because you are lying.
