ELWOOD, Illinois -- President Obama was rushed offstage at a Memorial Day event after a massive lightning and rain storm opened up on the open field where he was to speak.
Obama told thousands of guests at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery to get to a place of safety.
"Excuse me, everybody listen up," Obama told the crowd. "We are a little bit concerned about lightning. This may not be safe. I know that all of you are here to commemorate the fallen... What we'd like to do is if possible have people move back to their cars and if this passes in the next 15-20 minutes I'll stick around."
He said he hoped the ceremony could resume later. "But we don't want to endanger anyone, particularly the children, in the audience," he said. "A little bit of rain doesn't hurt anybody but we don't want anybody struck by lightning."
Obama was then whisked into a motorcade which sat, unmoving, for several minutes, unable to proceed in the heavy rain.

blasphemy from the unbeliever (in Memorial Day) brought the wrath of Gawd out.
Rain water made the text on the teleprompter run??
Glad he got out of there safely. Didn’t get struck by lighting. Ouch that would have been bad.
My Lord and my God... you are SO awesome!
... and elsewhere in America, millions of vets are smiling and thanking the Lord (including me)....
More importantly were they able to save the teleprompter?
Thank you, God!
Rain water cleansing the stench left behind form Obamas’ desecration of our heroes..
I can just see the spirits of thousands upon thousands of fallen American heroes seeing POS Obama at their resting place and shouting out in military unison, “HELL NO!”
Mother Nature pisses down the Bamster’s back and tells him it’s rain .
Even the angels don’t want to hear that self-absorbed ass pontificate from his teleprompter.
The video was great.
Too bad the umbrella didn’t attract a bolt of lightning.(oh come on half the country was thinking that!)
And his saying “Uh,listen up!” oh how very presidential.
What? No “shout outs”?
“Uh,,,shout out to the weather, uh, stop the damn lightning, uh, I said stop da damn lightnin’, damn it!”
Hee Hee Hee
Funniest video of the fake pres yet, him getting pummeled by wind, rain and lightning.
If he hadn’t disrespected servicemen everywhere by ditching his duty to preside over the Arlington Memorial Day Observance I wouldn’t be as glad to see his plans fail....again.
What a sad excuse for a human being...
A link for your thread:
Was his speech in Arabic or English?
Dick Cheney’s weather machine?
Were they in the audience this year?
Did Rove wheel the Weather Machine (TM) out of storage for this special event?
Well I’ll be darned! There IS a God!
GOD has a good sense of humor.........He doesn’t appretiate pretenders.....LOL
But, but what about the teleprompterr? Oh, the humanity...
Good grief, the very first sentence is a lie. Obama was never rushed off stage. His teleprompter went out, and he used the thunder as an excuse to walk off.
