Posted on 07/14/2012 1:11:51 PM PDT by John Semmens
A repeated pattern of failure to reimburse communities for the added expense incurred to police campaign events hasnt fazed the Obama for America campaign to reelect the president. Cities in California, Nevada, and New Hampshire have registered complaints with the campaign over its refusal to pay.
Campaign Manager Jim Messina rejected the complaints saying that having the president visit your town is an honor for which the local residents should be willing to pay. Not everyone is graced by the presence of this great man. The few who are should be expected to pay for the privilege.
Messina called the typical $25,000 to $35,000 costs incurred by these complaining cities small potatoes compared with the amounts people normally pay for an audience with the president. Besides, complaining, in my opinion, isnt smart. The president is a powerful man. He can send a lot of benefits or headaches your way depending on whether he sees you as a friend or a foe.

WOW just WOW, the arrogance of these people. This shows us just what they think of the American people and this great country. Open your eyes folks, they have to go in November.
You are going to get a LOT on this one, John :)
You might first want to find out if those communities even wish for the exalted presence of the worshipful almighty 0ne.
Too close to the truth, this one.
SUPPOSED TO BE SATIRE
Hard to tell any more, ain’t it?
Just once, I would like to see a mayor tell Obama’s campaign “If you don’t deposit, up front, the estimated cost of your visit, then Obama does not get any police support. The Secret Service can handle it all. And no, they will NOT have any authority to block traffic”.
