Actual headline: Obama Heads to Rio Sunday; Maximum Security Awaits
Forbes ^ | 14 March 2011 | Ken Rapoza

Posted on 03/16/2011 8:56:12 AM PDT by matginzac

President Barack Obama will take his first official trip to Brazil this weekend where he will speak in the popular Cinelandia Square in downtown Rio de Janeiro. Access, of course, will be tightly restricted and security measures so secretive that not even the Embassy or US Consulate in Rio know exactly how it’s all going to go down. Obama’s speech will be free and open to the public and take place around 15:00 local time (14:00 EST). Access to the square will begin at 11:30, and is sure to draw a crowd. Obama is popular in Brazil. One politician seeking office in Rio actually changed his name to Barack Obama in 2008 to solicit votes. He didn’t win. The Obama family will also take in the sights in Rio. A trip to Corcovado mountain, where the Christ the Redeemer statue stands (France gave us Lady Liberty, gave Brazil Jesus) is supposedly on the itinerary. What trip to Rio would be complete without it? If they do make it to the top of the mountain, they will do so with an entourage of secret service and Brazil’s Elite Squad, known as BOPE.

After obamma has picked our pockets, it would be a shame if he got his pocket picked.

I’m not going to complain about this. As far as I am concerned, he can spend the remainder of his term down there. I love it when he’s not here.

While they’re there, maybe he can screw up their economy like he did ours. Oh, wait- those people weren’t so stupid as to elect him-!!

Don't worry. Biden is out of the country, so is Hitlery. When Obummer leaves, we can just lock the door and not let them back in. Problem solved. Rio seems like a party town. Obummer will love living in exile there.

I agree, but the point is, imagine the press, if Bush had done the same thing.

Bush would be crucified. I just heard liberals today saying that Bush acted stupidly concerning Katrina.

Obama is popular in Brazil.

Why? What has he done for them, other than crushing our domestic oil industry to drive up the value of their product?

I assume the Brazilian government agreed to cover the statue of Christ before Obama arrives in Rio.

No, they won't even put him in minimum security. They won't even indict him.

Hi - just asking for a tutorial...
I just don’t seem to get it right when I post an article which I do rarely.
Any guidance written that will help me in the future?
