He came and met the typical white people who bitterly cling to guns and religion!
I live viewed the speech and question and answer in Alpha.
Apparently, some of the same questions were asked that were asked at Atkinson.
One of the questioners asked what he would do about declining attendance at county fairs ... his answer?
Some of the inner city kids in Chicago ought to be brought to the county fairs.
Obama in front of empty pallets.
Hat tip to right way right for noticing that...
You don't need to bring them, just text to *FLASHMOB with a list of the loot they can get.
Before you know it, it will look Macy's during a power failure.
Can someone put a “Mission Accomplished” banner on the pallets?
...but the empty pallets have BUNTING!
He did NOT visit the Rock Island Arsenal.
Local people have been BEGGING the man to visit the Rock Island Arsenal. He stayed in a motel across the RIVER from the Rock Island Arsenal.
The carbon footprint of the 44 vehicle Obama Bus Tour is a calculation that should be concerning liberals like Rep. Gabby Giffords who asked Gen, David Patreus what he was doing to reduce the carbon foot print of the fighting forces in Afghanistan.
There was a WICKED shot of a SS member in black, with the glasses standing in front of a John Deere tractor.
Obama is man of the farm, I guess.
I wonder if the cornfield behind Obama will miraculously grow taller from the recent fertilizer.
One of my farmbuds told me that everyone knows it’s unwise to spread FRESH stuff.
I posted that pic in post #45
right way right only commented on it in post #58 attempting to minimize my commentary.
Notice the vehicles in the passing lane. Are those art of his “entourage”, which means they had the entire road. Or others passing his motorcade, on a blind hill?
I think his comment communicated the desolation of Obamanation better that yours of obama being the one on the skids.
Anyway you’re both on the same page and side, IMHO...
Oh give me a home
Where the Democrats roam
And the fears and the blame game does play
Where seldom is heard
A solutional word
And the roads are all crowded all day....
I take it he got to sit in the children’s section, too.
Pictures like that must really irritate his people in Detroit.
From hay bales and flyover country to the richest/most expensive small town in America @ $50K/week 28+ acre ‘vacation retreat.’ Doesn’t this family ever think of their OWN house? As in....Chicago? There must be more dust in that place now than in Las Vegas foreclosures.
Radio today reporting the Congressional Black Caucus IS complaining about “why no black children are in his photo's” and “why he isn't appearing in the black neighborhoods during his bus tour “ ....
Apparently don't understand that there AREN'T any black neighborhoods out in (working) farm country. And no (actual) black Iowa farmers (er, corn fuel takers) who vote in the Iowa caucus primaries. 8<)
Obama is on a campaign run and he's only visiting people that might not vote for him. He already knows he has "his people" in the bag.
