Obama In Orlando Tuesday - FReep Needed!!! Morgan & Morgan Lawyer To Host
MB26

Posted on 10/09/2011 9:07:43 PM PDT by MindBender26

Barack Obama will be in Orlando and nearby Lake Mary on Tuesday, pushing his so-called Jobs Bill and raising money for his reelection.

He starts at the Downtown Sheraton, then moves on to the Heathrow/Lake Mary home of Morgan & Morgan partner John Morgan

Don't have a scheule yet, but FReepmail me if you are up for a little sign waving.

BTW, spread the word. John Morgan, who loves to claim he is a lawyer "For The People," is hosting Obama. Tell anyone you know who is considering using his firm. They might want to know that he is that close to Obama.

OMG! Morgan and Morgan?!!!

They are a laughing stock in this household. Their constant commercials are such a turn off. We laugh our heads off at how desperately idiotic they are. Now I know why!

I absolutely hate the Morgan and Morgan radio and tv ads! No surprise he’s a Barry supporter. Wonder if Charlie Crist will be hanging out?

Obama is doing a good job cutting his own throat. He really doesn’t need our help.

I say we avoid the protests and work the legal system in a fair methodical manner,

Investigate the EPA and Eric Holder.
Investigate Frank and Dodd.

WHERE: ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE SHERATON HOTEL IN FRONT OF THE BOB CARR AUDITORIUM.

WHEN: WE WILL BEGIN GATHERING AT 2PM ON OCTOBER 11

Folks —
...
PLEASE SHARE THIS EVENT WITH YOUR PATRIOT FRIENDS.

0bama is coming to town and we would like to greet him with YOU in attendance.

The official name of the event is “Obamas’ Farewell Tour Rally”.

This is more of a demonstration, not a protest. It should not be confrontational; rather, it will be a demonstration of two things:
1) Our power and effectiveness. Our signs should reflect this.
2) The affect that the policies coming out of this administration has had on us personally (homes, jobs) and the US economy in general. Our signs should reflect this as well.

We will invite the press and hopefully they will show. Be prepared with your stories; if you are a veteran; if you have become unemployed; if your employer pulled healthcare benefits; if your home has lost value; things of this nature. Be prepared with your facts.

Some other ideas :
— Protect the individual; the greatest minority
— The point that WE are winning the argument, and what argument(s) should we showcase
— The idea that we are slowly moving the country back to the right
— The idea that the great unifier has UNIFIED US!

The 0bama event at the Sheraton is scheduled for 3:00 PM on October 11. We will begin gathering at 2PM.
We expect that his entourage will be very high security and we cant expect to get too close to the hotel.
We will gather ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE SHERATON HOTEL IN FRONT OF THE BOB CARR AUDITORIUM.
WE NEED NUMBERS FOLKS. 0bama needs to see that we are here, that we are not going away, and that we WILL take this country back from the dripping claws of collectivism; that includes removing him from office. and we are not removing him because we feel like it. we are removing him because he is destroying this country and our signs and speech will say how he is accomplishing that.

Yes and they have the most annoying ads on the planet. My favorite is the one where John Morgan talks about a big insurance company reporting him to the FL bar because he’s telling everyone that in a trial, you can’t know if the defending party has insurance. That’s even in the federal rules of evidence. He’s tainting the jury pool. Hope the FL bar gets him. Even his print ads are obnoxious. I kid you not, we were at MacDill AFB this summer and there was a bus on base that was plastered with this clown.

Tuesday, according to Post Gazette:

He will be in Pittsburgh at the Union Hall #5 with the Goon Squad in the South Side at 2:00 PM.

They are really having a tough time hiding his sorry butt.

Parkway West traffic is going to be tough.

I swear it seems they are just hiding him now so he won't do anything.

Bambulance ads drive me insane. Same with the Social Security guys. “We’ll take care of the taxpayers. You’ve got enough to worry about”. (Like trying to figure out which channel Oprah and “The View” come on).

Yep,
About 3 days ago I got a T.F.R. stating the area above Orlando would be closed above Orlando and the “magic negro” would be there on Tuesday.
Bet he also screws up traffic on theground then too.

Obama in Disneyland. Looking more and more like Dumbo.

Perfect. After he loses in 2012, he can say, "I'm going back to Disneyland!"

Obama's Plan "A," Plan "B," and Plan "C," all appear to be taken from Charley Manson's "Helter Skelter."

See you all down there in a couple of hours!

Here’s what I just sent out to my email lists:

It’s the rule. Every Democrat politician, before losing the next election, has to show up at John Morgan’s house. Remember one year ago? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFYDMkGYjR8&feature=fvsr

Here’s your invitation to the Obama fundraiser at John Morgan’s house
October, 11 2011
http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/news_politics/2011/10/heres-your-invitation-to-the-obama-fundraiser-at-john-morgans-house.html

There’s a literally all-star host committee ­ NBA star Grant Hill and wife Tamia; ex-NBA great and Orlando Magic assistant coach Patrick Ewing and Magic GM Otis Smith; Boston Celtics (and ex-Magic) Coach Doc Rivers and wife Kristin; former MLB All-Star Ken Griffey Jr. and wife Melissa – along with former Democratic Party chair Bob Poe; Morgan & Morgan attorney Greg Francis and wife Keisha; and the uber-host/fundraiser/lawyer/entrepreneur John Morgan, whose Lake Mary home is the scene of the gathering.

But if you go, bring a checkbook. Minimum ticket is $1,500. For $10,000 per couple, you can go to a “photo reception”, meaning you get your photo taken with Obama. And big donors ­ max is 38,500 ­ get up close and personal with the prez.

Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist’s wife is now a registered Democrat, the AP reports.
Crist called his wife “independent minded and very bright” and said she feels more comfortable in the Democratic Party but said he intends to remain without a party. He left the Republicans last year during his unsuccessful run for the U.S. Senate.

While watching the Florida Gators game on Saturday from university President Bernie Machen’s box, the state’s former First Lady Carole Crist leaned over to state House Democratic Leader Ron Saunders and asked, “Do you think Charlie should run as a Democrat for governor?” .....

9/6/2000 For the people? By Jeffrey C. Billman
http://www2.orlandoweekly.com/features/story.asp?id=1911

“You’re in the business of people,” the man says. “People think — you happen to practice law, but you’re in the business of people.”

Morgan smiles. “Sometimes,” he replies.

....Morgan spends $6 million a year on advertising, certainly more than any firm in Florida and possibly, he says, more than any firm in the country. Perhaps that’s why last year Morgan was voted among the top five “people we love to hate” in an Orlando Sentinelsurvey

..His advertising has worked so well, Morgan’s taken his show on the road. He now travels throughout the country, conducting a seminar called “Creating a Multi-Million Dollar Law Firm.” “Once I’ve got these people connected to my network,” he says, “I can control mass torts in America.” ......

In the last 18 months, Morgan personally has contributed more than $20,000 to various national campaigns, mostly Democratic. ... Over the years he’s made friends in high places, including [DemcRATS] House Minority Leader Richard Gephardt. In 1996, Morgan sat on Bill Clinton’s campaign-finance committee. ................

“Somebody once asked me,” he says, “‘Why don’t you run for office?’ He said, ‘Why, do you have skeletons in your closet?’ I said, ‘Shit, I don’t have skeletons, I have live bodies in my closet.’ I would never want to have the scrutiny that you have to undergo to run for office.”

Besides, he adds, the money isn’t right.

“To me,” he says, “public service is commendable. Most of the time, it’s really kind of the guys who are the last choice — but they’re willing to do it.”

On politics, Morgan can be blunt. He dismisses Rep. Bill McCollum, for instance, as a “public disgrace.” He financially supports Democrats because the “[Republican] leadership,” he says, “Tom DeLay and Dick Armey, are just two mean sons of bitches — all they care about is making the rich richer.” [Hypocrisy on parade ~ Jance]

Flashback:
12/18/1997
Attorney’s arrest has battery included

Until his arrest last week in Casselberry for battery on a police officer, 1997 had been a very good year for Orlando attorney John B. Morgan. His personal-injury firm, Morgan, Colling and Gilbert, was riding high after a record-breaking $850,000 medical malpractice award in 1996 .....

But at about 3 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 10, Morgan and his red Cadillac were pulled over on S.R. 436 after pulling out of a Denny’s parking lot. Police say he swerved across lanes without signaling and stopped abruptly in the intersection with S.R. 17/92, after having traveled five feet past the white line marking a safe-stopping location. After the light changed, Morgan drove on, nearly clipping the curb, before using all three lanes to negotiate a curve, according to reports by Casselberry police.

He was pulled over at Brewer Street and, after reportedly failing field sobriety tests, cited for driving under the influence. Still, Morgan might have avoided serious trouble. He had done so before after being arrested for DUI.

But, according to the arresting officer, Morgan became enraged upon arriving at the Seminole County Jail, called the officer a “fat fucker” and “baldy,” twice headbutted him, and hit him in the face with his left hand.

So, in addition to charges of DUI, failure to provide insurance and two other minor traffic offenses, Morgan was charged with battery on a police officer, a third-degree felony calling for up to five years in prison. He was released after posting a $2,000 bond. On Dec. 30, Morgan is scheduled to appear at the Seminole County Courthouse on the traffic charges. On Jan.13, Morgan’s attorney, Stuart Hyman, will try to convince a hearing officer not to suspend Morgan’s driver’s license. And on Jan. 29, Morgan is scheduled for arraignment in Circuit Court in Sanford on the felony charge. Hyman, who did not respond to a request for an interview, has filed a not-guilty plea in the felony case.

In 1993, Hyman filed more than 10 motions contesting Morgan’s arrest for DUI after a minor two-car accident in Altamonte Springs. Morgan said he was “distracted by his car phone,” according to the report. But after failing field tests, he registered 0.134 on the Breathalyzer. Twice, Hyman was granted continuances to prepare for trial. Then on Sept. 10, 1993, Morgan accepted a plea bargain reducing his charge to reckless driving. He paid a f $500 fine and agreed to serve 100 hours of community service or pay another $1,000.

Perhaps more importantly, Morgan that time had escaped the public embarrassment of being convicted of DUI. After all, he is the firm’s media presence, beckoning clients with personal injuries — including those inflicted by drunk drivers — to trust his firm. This time, such a clean escape may be more difficult.
