Skip to comments.Obama Casts Republicans as Slurpee Sippers
Posted on 10/09/2010 1:39:01 PM PDT by RobinMasters
To hear President Obama tell it, Slurpees are the beverage of choice of obstructionist Republicans.
In each of 20 political speeches over the last two months, Mr. Obama has included a riff in which he portrays GOP leaders as sipping Slurpees while hard-working Democrats struggle to pull the economy out of a ditch.
"We're down there. It's hot. We were sweating. Bugs everywhere. We're down there pushing, pushing, pushing on the car. Every once in a while we'd look up and see the Republicans standing there. They're just standing there fanning themselves -- sipping on a Slurpee." The line never fails to get a laugh, as it did Thursday afternoon at a Democratic rally at Bowie State University in Maryland. His audience laughs and Mr. Obama does too. He clearly gets a kick out of the image of GOP leaders sipping a slushy, ice-cold Slurpee while Democrats like himself nearly kill themselves to pull the economy out of the ditch of the GOP's making.
Though he doesn't mention any Slurpee-sipping Republicans by name, his rhetoric suggests an image of Senate and House Minority Leaders Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, dressed casually (perhaps in shorts and sneakers) with a couple of Big Gulp cups in their hands, sipping on 7-Eleven's sweet and glacial libation. You can almost see the extra-long flex-straw through which the leaders are sucking in their liquid refreshment.

Had enough of this racist bastard yet?
Yep we Republicans know that the car isnt going anywhere with an empty gas tank (because the Dims have taxed it empty) and all of those food stamp recipients sitting in the back seat and on the roof.
Well, it’s a Sat afternoon and I’m working - as usual. Got to - I’m self employed.
So I’m drinking Ice Tea.
But I’m thinking of that Blue Moon I’m going to have in about 45 minutes.
A bunch of Kool-Aid drinkers laughing at Slupree humor. What a crowd.
Guess it's better to be a Slurpee sipper than an ice cream licker.
These people are more worthless than tits on a boar hog.
a proper analogy would be one where, the gop are holding up signs saying stop, and putting up road bloaks whenever they could to stop the obama car from driving down a cliff. All the while, Obama is saying, “Get out of the way”
I remember Iowahawk went to town with that one
As opposed to Demoncraps who’s
“beverage” preference is human blood?
Oh yea, the obama car just ran out of oil, and its being pushed by other Democrats
Should make a cartoon showing all the Dems packed into and under the Obama Bus GOP out in front putting up detour signs and roandblocks with a look ahead of a broken bridge over a deep ravine and the Obama party bus just keep on truckin....
That would be awesome...
Each and every time he opens his mouth, he tells us volumes about himself.
Barack Hussein Obama! Mmmm!Mmmm!Mmmm! Insulting Americans on a daily basis.
What the hell is this creep talking about? All I know about Slurpees is that it is a drink you get at 7/11. Hardly a place fat, rich “republicans” hang out at. It’s working-class in action. I go there everyday for my cat food. Everyone lined up is a working-class guy buying coffee and Ding-Dongs.
There’s is serious cognitive dissonance with this guy.
Didn’t they just cut out 3 weeks early? Isn’t this the vacation king himself... With entertainment weekly at the WH?
Working hard, is he? Working hard at ridiculing anyone who doesn’t agree with him which means he has isolated most of the population by now.
I sure am glad I never told the countless stranded folks in Phoenix my affiliation. The desert or the mountains is a long way from home. Now this son of a true bitch is calling me out. RR I do miss your leadership.
We are all just shaking our heads at the fools trying to push this broken thing.
