Obama pays Sunday visit to CEO (Comcast)
Politico ^ | 8-22-11 | Glenn Thrush

Posted on 08/22/2011 5:17:45 PM PDT by dynachrome

The presidential motorcade on Martha's Vineyard peeled out of Blue Heron Farms at 5:15 p.m. with the president and Valerie Jarrett in tow.

After 10 minutes, we made an abrupt left turn on John Cottle Road — an unpaved, deeply rutted eight-foot-wide private path hemmed in by ivy, scrub oak and big, scary boulders.

After bottoming out four times — we're talking two-foot holes in a sand-and-gravel road, along with one hairpin turn — Obama and Jarrett arrived at the West Tisbury home of their friends Brian and Aileen Roberts, spokesman Josh Earnest informs us. It was 5:30 p.m.

Roberts is chairman and CEO of Comcast.

Maybe he should work a shift at a Wal-Mart, McDonald’s or a foundry, to experience real work.

Visualize what the State-Run Media would have said had George Bush gone to visit with Rupert Murdoch.

Here's my challenge for the FREEPERS and Aggies reading this column....

How many of these folks on Marthas Vineyard have placed there property into a conservation easement, so they can get the tax benefits? .

What a topic for research.

I'll bet lunch some of the lefties have taken the plunge....

  War With the American people

 It has recently become quite plain
 our economy's circling the drain
 We are barely afloat
 without a lifeboat
 but he and Mo still sip their champagne

Lets hope his economic stupidity will send him back to Chicago in January of 2013.

"hemmed in by.....big, scary boulders."

A phenomenon most metrosexuals in the leftist media have no experience with.

Comcast recently announced that they will offer $9.95 Internet service to the “underprivileged,” as well as low-cost computers. The link says it all, if your kid gets a free lunch then you get $10 Internet service.

I can see the words “FASCIST!”, “NAZI!”, and GOEBBELLS!” already on the Daily Kos, HuffPo, and TPM front pages
