Public Shut Out of Presidential Appearance in Holland on Thursday
Tuesday, August 09, 2011 5 a.m. EDT
HOLLAND, MI (WHTC News) - The White House says that there will be no general public appearances for President Obama when he arrives in Holland on Thursday afternoon to tour the JCI-Saft lithium-ion battery-making plant on 48th Street. He is expected to promote new technologies towards his auto fuel standards goals. JCI had received a 299 million-dollar federal grant to refurbish the former Meadowbrook facility. Its the second trip to Holland in 13 months for Mr. Obama; he spoke at the groundbreaking of the LG-Chem battery-making plant last July.
Michiganders are typically outspoken. In the current environment obviously Barry wishes to avoid that.
Is there nothing more pressing to attend to in this country
than visiting a battery company?
Who is advising Barry?
“Michiganders are typically outspoken.”
Northern Michiganders seem to be good people. It’s just that area around Detroit that fouls things up... that and Ann Arbor! ;)
Oh, Holland, Michigan.
If it were Holland , I was gonna say he’s not allowing the public to attend because wooden shoes being thrown at him would hurt.
Some of the companies he "helped" have filed for bankruptcy.
Our stupid President on another one of his fool’s errands.
How is it he is NEVER where he needs to be, doing and saying what he needs to?
At first I figured he didn’t want anyone seeing him “burn a dobbie”...then I realized this is Holland, Michigan.
Yeah, “the Obama effect.” Sort of like being on the cover of SI. The employees there must be thinking “oh carp, there goes my job.”
He has HIS OWN Propaganda Department now, Remember?
Why let some reporter embarrass you when you can just produce YOUR OWN agitprop, which the gays in the MSM will gladly regurgitate unedited...
Uh-Oh....that battery company is probably going to shut down within 6 months.....
The company opened their first manufacturing plant in FRANCE in 2008. This “REWARD” was to get them to open one in the USA. I’m sure they’ll go bankrupt before they make money...which they predict will be in 2020.
Should make a great video for his opponent, if he or she will use it.
Probably no press either. Holland is a pretty conservative town. I am sure he will not be getting any standing ovations. If you do not have a Van in front of your name and blonde hair you are, well, and outsider.
Want to know a good one? This plant was formed/started by the Prince family of Holland, MI. Prince sound familiar? Think Blackwater and Amway.
This company is totally dependent on “the future of” Green Cars....and they’re not flying off the lots.
Isn’t that DeVos’s brother in law?
Numbers like that should arouse suspicion.
It was not a $300 million grant, it was not a $287 million grant, nope, it was a $299 million grant.
Almost as if there were some $300 million threshhold at which greater scrutiny comes into play.
There may be nothing to it, but it's worth asking the question...
Yes, Prince & DeVos families; both families are billionaires. Think this tidbit makes the news?
Hell no! Thats because it is news. They don’t report news anymore
I don't think Osama Obama will be welcome there, but they're polite out there. It's not Cohoctah......
“At first I figured he didnt want anyone seeing him burn a doobie...then I realized this is Holland, Michigan.”
The local media in Holland should focus on the battery company’s employees to see what they’re doing on their lunch break in nearby parks and parking lots.
Sounds like I wasn’t as far off as I initially thought.
I’d like to see them give Obama some real battery.
Oh, you KNOW Holland! LOL That was good.
FNC right now...3:03 PM EST...Holland, MI. Who or what is making that dummy talk?
