Skip to comments.7-Eleven thankful for free presidential press (Slurpees)

Global convenience store chain 7-Eleven has been getting some free advertising for its signature drink, the Slurpee, from none other than U.S. President Barack Obama.
Obama has used the Slurpee -- a thick, frozen, flavoured beverage that is wildly popular with Americans -- in speeches on the campaign trail ahead of next week's mid-term elections to illustrate just how obstructionist and ornery Republicans can be.
At a rally at Bowie State University in Maryland this month, Obama said that while his Democratic Party was sweating and pushing to get the U.S. economy out of a ditch, "the Republicans . . . are just standing there fanning themselves -- sipping on a Slurpee."
According to some political watchers, Obama has mentioned Slurpees in 20 campaign speeches over the last two months.
On Tuesday, 7-Eleven, which has stores in Asia and Europe, as well as the United States and Canada, thanked Obama, taking care not to alienate Slurpee-sipping Republicans.
"Slurpee is bipartisan, but we thank President Obama for the free advertising for our popular drink," said 7-Eleven spokeswoman Margaret Chabris.
Wait until they hear what Joe Biden has to say about 7-11!
Republicans are sipping Slurpees because somebody has to be sober to drive after we get the keys back from the drunk on spending Democrats.
Coke bad, Slurpee good. Some junk food is more equal then others. Proles should check in with Great Leader daily for correct food advice.
I can’t wait until the Democrats are sipping on diaspora.
Good. Now I feel even better about refusing to enter a 7-11.
Reminds me of the 'Endorsement' scene from Wayne's World.
Slurpee - Slushy sugar water. I wonder when the First Wookie will go apesh*t over the empty & useless calories that are adding to kids’ obesity. /s
Actually, Obama seems to be insulting 7-11 and Republicans but denigrating slurpees as stuff for “lazy” Republicans. Well, that makes me want to go and have a few more slurpees just to spite Ohbummer.
Aren’t most 7-11’s owned by Mislims? Just askin’
Mislims = Muslims
Obama is attempting to insult Slurpee drinkers as lazy, do nothing, Republicans. In his stupidity he is insulting millions of Americans who drink Slurpees.
I think on election day I will get me a slurpee
