Attention New York City drivers: President Obama is headed to the Big Apple for three days later this month. In addition to tying up traffic in midtown, the president is set to attend events at the United Nations General Assembly and deliver a speech at the Clinton Global Initiative.

Here's the full announcement from the White House:

On Monday, September 19, the President will travel to New York City, returning to Washington, DC, on Wednesday, September 21. While in New York City, the President will participate in the United Nations General Assembly, attend additional bilateral and multilateral meetings on the margins of UNGA, and deliver remarks at the Clinton Global Initiative.

    This is getting stupid... I am starting to believe that Obama does not have a clue or he just does not care. Needs to park it and quit running around on our dime like he has won the lotto.

    Time for a trip to Coney Island, dogs, cotton candy and pizza. All on taxpayer money of course. Wait Obama will be tired from giving his "jobs" speech.

    were y'all complainin when bush went to the UN? do you people even know what clinton global initiative is about? i highly recommend tuning into their live conference feed (as well as the UN's) – you will absolutely learn more than a thing or two, and none of them will involve complaints. And just FYI, last year at CGI, Michelle Obama gave a speech about the importance of hiring veterans. if you think that's a waste of money and time, leave this country now.
