Obama just got done talking in Elko NV.

Posted on 09/17/2008 1:06:45 PM PDT by ladyvet

This idiot just got done speaking in my town of Elko NV. He was condescending and had that arrogant attitude while he read off the teleprompters. Mentioned the 2nd amendment, says he supports it for us dumb a$$ rural peons. Mentioned the mining industry which is what we do here along with ranching. Said he understood it....unlike his opponent. Never said HOW he understood it! The messiah went on to say he was a Democrat who could have spent his time campaigning in Las Vegas, but he cares sooo much about us and that he needed to come here.

Then he just made up a freakin’ lie saying that the Dem's care about us that's why he's here and the Republican’s don't ever show. B.FREAKIN’ S.!!!!

Republican’s always come here. The Channey’s were here last election and it was standing room only. The place was packed. Since I'm involved with the vote out here I know that either McCain or Palin with be here for a fact. Probably the first since we're strong Republican here and she's needed other places.

He kept saying Elko to bond with the handful of people that showed up. It was pitiful. The only fun thing was there was this kid behind him making faces and gestures, yawning on purpose, and I think he even faked picking his nose! A couple of people tried to make him stop but he wouldn't. Then he was gone, secret service probably took care him. This guy is a total fake.

Thanks for the report!

Any idea how many people where there, or a photo of the event?

Well, come on. He finally found a city name that he could pronounce correctly.

Were the “handful of people” excited? Was this advertised properly, or was it impromptu?

Very little enthusiasm out of the crowd from what I could tell. No cheering, clapping from the crowd. Just doom and gloom.

"Hunter S Thompson - Fear and Loathing in Elko" ~ no doubt on Obama's list of "good reading".

Fellow I've been hassling with on an internet chat site since 1996 worked for Hunter, and actually visited Elko to develop background inforation for the book. He claims credit for a chapter or so.

Guy went around town trying to score some dope ~ completely missed the peyote crowd ~ I've accused him of not knowing dopers when he sees them of course.

Believe me, none of us hicks here in the sticks know what arugula is. Elko ain't Obama country, it's the home of Cowboy poetry!

There were lots of kids there due to the fact that all the schools let the kids go without being absent. So needless to say,they were there screwing around.

No pic’s, wouldn't waste my time. If I had known the little guy in back would be there I would have brought a camera.

The paper says 750 wrote in for tickets that were not there but I believe it was more like 200 if even. Like I said, lots of kids.

There was really no enthusiasm in the crowd. It was just a joke, you could almost tell he didn't want to be here. I'm sure he got on that plane at our little airport and said “ get me the hell away from those typical gun toting, clinging to there religion, white people.”

Seriously folks this guy is a joke, God help us if he gets in the office. I'm not fond of McCain but I will be going door to door starting Monday.

I stopped in at Elko this last summer when on a road trip vacation. Nice town. I did a day hike up in the beautiful Ruby Mountains (Island Lake).

I hope they did not leave to many Obama body snatcher pods in your town.

Heard Obama earlier today claim that the "old boys network" his opponent is talking about is a McCain staff meeting.

Barry needs the teleprompter to make sure he says all of what his puppetmasters want him to say.

He had to make sure the blame for the economic crisis got dumped on the people who weren’t as responsible as the RATs.

If Barry had to explain it himself, you would get a jumble of idiotic remarks strung together with uhs and ums.

They know it. Shame for the stupid sheeple that aren’t offended that this moron needs a teleprompter to do a stump speech.

That's what I mean..he was just pandering to the crowd. Whatever it takes to get in office.

I think they were nuts for even coming here. We are everything Obama is not. So, we have a few that somehow got lost and ended up here that support him, but this is safe Conservative country.

Elko county delivered Nevada for us last time and we'll do it again. ;^)

Thanks for posting this, I’ve been waiting to hear about his visit to Elko today. A few of us freepers visited your town a few years ago. How many showed up? There were thousands at the Palin event in Carson City.

Isn’t Elko near where that earthquake hit back in February? I was in Reno that week & I remember it being all over the News. Did a lot of damage to that old town.

Obamas stump speech is a living breathing document that needs changes...LOL..even the telepromter is slow on his change.

Sadly for him and his minions...the CONSTITUTION is NOT open to debate from his ends....

THANK GOD and OUR FOUNDING FATHERS FOR THAT!!!

I’m surprised Obama bothered to stop in Elko—the county voted about 4 to 1 for Bush both in 2000 and 2004, and he couldn’t expect to draw a big crowd. I guess they consider Nevada up for grabs (as the polls suggest) so every vote counts. They’ll do better in Las Vegas with former Californians and illegal immigrants, I would guess.

We were fifty miles away and still got a rockin’ from that quake. I really thought it was my kids running crazy in the house for a minute. It originated outside of Wells Nevada and pretty much destroyed the old town there.

My condolences for having to put up with a visit by the anointed one in your community, we are north of you in Mountain Home, ID. He would be lucky to gather a couple of on lookers in our conservative God fearing gun totting military town. The Mountain Home AFB Hospital has a decontamination team available if you need assistance in clearing any toxins he may have left behind. :)

The messiah went on to say he was a Democrat who could have spent his time campaigning in Las Vegas

It's unusual but NV is a swing state in this election. We need every Republican vote there to offset the liberal union and transplanted Californian vote in LV. The Messiah was in Elko to hustle for the union voters from the gold mines.

If Obama loses this election by a close margin campaign stops like this one are going to be questioned as a waste of time & other resources.

Obama spent a lot of time in my area, central Pennsylvania, during the Dem Primary. It's another solidly Republican area. It made a sort of sense then, when the opponent was Hillary. But for the general election he'd do better to focus on areas where he is either strong (maximize his base turnout) or on areas with strong crossover tendencies.

Campaigning in conservative Republican areas is just not going to budge the meter.

Thanks for the great report. I was pretty sure he had his teleprompter crutch with him and you have confirmed it.

I also surmised that the crowd wasn’t very big because of how tight the camera shot was.

yep...same thing happened in Colorado when we lived there.

There are only one or two mines that are union here. Newmont for sure,Barrack is not. I don't think it matters much. We have an established community that votes Republican. The newbies come and go but dont’ vote much. It cuts into their casino time.

That said we take nothing for granted out here. We pound the pavement until the polls close.

Back to Hunter S. Thompson ~ a favorite of dope blowing Leftwingtards. He wrote a book about one aspect of Elko as he saw it. Even contracted out a bunch of the writing to a guy I know from the net.

Obama probably thought highly of Hunter, although probably not highly of the way he had his cremated remains shot from a cannon!

Obama went to Elko to pay homage to an MJ hero, not to draw a crowd. He sought solidarity with the Rolling Stone subscriber base.
