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.

Naw , Zer0 is a drunk. Remember the info fro 2010 that his Doctor warned him against drinking. He still smokes.
What’s Parma spelled backwards?: “Amrap!”

“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!
Obviously, I’m not the only fan of The Ghoul, here.
Maybe he wanted an .. audience with Coach sandusky, but got lost..
“Obviously, Im not the only fan of The Ghoul, here.”
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.
If life were “The Big Bang Theory”, obeyme would be Kripke.
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.
Lincoln certainly spoke informally with many people. Here is a link to a conversation Lincoln had regarding someone's hair (bottom of the page).
Those two porkers don’t look like they are doing without. must be union connected.
Lincoln showed more cleverness with that one act, than Obama has shown all his life.
