Posted on 05/09/2008 1:54:25 PM PDT by chessplayer
On Fridays CBS "Early Show," co-host Harry Smith proclaimed: "Barack Obama took some time off from campaigning to go back to Washington, where he got the royal treatment yesterday." Correspondent Chip Reid followed with a report: "Officially this place, Capitol Hill, is Barack Obama's place of employment, but he doesn't come here very often. When he did make a rare visit yesterday he was treated like a rock star."
Reid went on to describe Obamas "rock star" tour of Congress: "Swarmed by tourists and reporters, Barack Obama slowly wound his way through the U.S. Capitol, visiting the House floor where observers say even some members of Congress appeared star struck."

Of course we, the mere taxpayers, get to still pay him (and Hillary too) for "working" for us.
they are already on their knees, but it ain’t praying that they’re doing
Oh they've been doing that for quite some time.
I heard that on the 20th of this month he will expect them to!
Rock Star is oh so 2007. Today the thing is to be glamourized as a PORN STAR!
When Camelot II comes tumbling down (in Nov.) before it even gets started the Left will be in suicide mode.
That's assuming they're not doing it already. It was a disgusting spectle on C-SPAN when he shows up on the House floor, DURING A VOTE, to be greeted like a movie star.
Worst. Messiah. Ever.
They are all giving him a bunch of Lewinskies.
If he a rock star or a new god. I get confused sometimes.
When will Jann Wener elect him into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
They will riot as they almost did in 2000 and 2004.
What a rip off it is to be from a state where one of your senators is campaigning for the presidency. They’re getting paid for a job they aren’t doing. How is that fair for anyone?
These people are demented. They kneel before the untried Communist.
How totally embarrassing. Barack, Hillary, and Mccain should be at work first. We pay their wages. Wonder how we all would be treated at work if we never showed up but once in a blue moon.
Yes, that speaks volumes, that the report says he doesn’t go to Capitol Hill very often. Officially he’s a senator and the work of Congress is ongoing, but he’s off running for president and doesn’t have time to take care of that business.
The same goes for Hillary and was true for Biden and Dodd while they were in the campaign too. When people holding an elective office are running for another office, they aren’t doing the job they were elected for in the first place.
I´ll start praying for a President called John McCain rather sooner than later.
This is apparently his pattern. He didn't show up much in the state legislature either and when he did, half the time he hit the wrong voting button. I'm convinced the guy is just a congenitally lazy con artist who's gotten through life by looking good, talking smooth and brown-nosing the relevant authority figures to forge a path for him - Jeremiah Wright, et al.
So let’s hear him play some rock. I’m betting it wouldn’t be any better than his bowling.
Better yet, join me in praying and asking for GOD's mercy and protection on this nation, regardless of which of these three remaining yahoos become President.
I assume that’s not a pun???
"..Sen. Obama is a Rorschach test. I see hope! I see brains! I see a whole new kind of politician! I see an amazing life story! I see an orator! I see a natural! I see a hero!.."
This is the best explanation of the Obama effect. Obama is charming and does not have a record, people project what they want.
Also Democrats are hot to get back in the White House and anyone who looks to deliver this will be looked at as a savior, especially NOT a Clinton who has a LOT of enemies.
Rock Star is inappropriate for a President....Hardly what America's founding fathers anticipated.
I hate to say it, BUT we are so royally screwed! Can you say piss president Barack HUSSEIN OsAma!! GOD HELP US!
“Obama - Building a Religion”
Most of his time in the Illinois state senate, he voted “present”.... what experience is that?
“they are already on their knees, but it aint praying that theyre doing”
Hillary wants some of that too.
