Obama Makes Surprise Stops for Burgers and Veggies
Yahoo ^ | 7/5/12 | Mary Bruce | ABC OTUS News

Posted on 07/05/2012 8:37:13 PM PDT by NormsRevenge

President Obama made two surprise stops this afternoon as his campaign bus tour made its way through northern Ohio.

Heading to Sandusky, the president dropped in on diners at the Kozy Corners Family Restaurant in Oak Harbor, where he mingled with local residents and ordered himself a burger.

On his way in, he met a little boy in the parking lot and couldn't help complimenting his spiky blue hair.

"I like that hair, man. I was thinking of getting some hair just like it," Obama said, according to pool reports. "What do you put in there to make it spiky? Product?"

Encouraged by his parents, the boy reportedly shook the president's hand.

Obama, accompanied by former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, then headed inside, where he was met with cheers and applause.

The president glad-handed his way through the dining room, saying hello to several elderly customers, chit-chatting with a young girl and, of course, cradling a baby.

One young girl showed the president her sketchbook. "You're very talented," he said as he flipped through the pages, before inscribing it "dream big dreams."

The president also stopped to talk with a group of white-haired women, who told him they have played pinochle together for decades.

"Tell the truth, the national press is here," the president joked. "Are you playing for money?"

The ladies confessed that they occasionally play for a dollar or a quarter. "I'm not going to take you on, especially now that I know you play for money," Obama quipped.

I wonder if he had to go to Ziggy’s because Hot Dog Heaven wouldn’t have him. They’ve been spot lighted on The Food Network multiple times, but what I’ve known of the owner is he’s seemed a conservative. Amherst is a pretty small town. (Graduate, class of ‘76.) My mom got his secret chili recipe when she retired school teaching. It’s in a laminated envelope. Mine, all mine, when she kicks ;)

Looks like he stopped for boogers, broads and booze, and maybe a good wedgy.

No wonder the woman could capture my attention when I was 4-5 years old. As for the second video, Joel Rose and I did some pilot training together. There was a sad story.

She got recorded into the Congressional record for that rant.

I would have been 21 at the time and wasn’t living there as I had joined the navy

The second clip was just funny.

We had some characters back then.

Maybe she’s the reason I got a dirt bike for my 12th birthday back in 1971 and a street bike when I was 18. I was just telling my daughter yesterday how funny it was when I’d take off my helmet and get the exclamation, “you’re a girl!”

Seriously though, even as a child, I could tell partisan politics and she always seemed to try to find the truth of a matter. I actually appreciated that for as old as she was, they let her have her rants. And I stopped watching her after about 6 years old when we moved.

“The president wanted to buy some sweet corn to bring back to the White House, but debated how much. “I am thinking we are going to be eating some over the weekend. I’m just trying to count how many folks we will have,” he said.
He initially said he wanted to buy an entire basket, but reconsidered when one of the employees informed him that was about three dozen ears. “I’ve only got six people,” he said, mulling it over, before ultimately deciding on a dozen.”

Day old corn? Yuck!

Nope. That was “pop” and chips time with my sisters. A friend actually got invited into the audience. She essentially flipped off our hard cord algebra teacher who wouldn’t give her a pass to go to the taping. Instant hero. LOL.

“They can probably expect a visit from the IRS soon.”

Who, coincidentally, will run the Death Panels.

Wouldn’t surprise me if he stopped to smoke some joints and snort some coke with the local drug addicts.

There is something ironic in that picture; the “crowd” of two Obama supports, the shuttered business, the American flag reduced to lawn furniture. It all fits.

Can anyone imagine Eisenhower or Truman talking like that? Never mind Washington or Lincoln.

Lincoln certainly spoke informally with many people. Here is a link to a conversation Lincoln had regarding someone's hair (bottom of the page).

Lincoln showed more cleverness with that one act, than Obama has shown all his life.
