Obama: I'm Going to Disney World (Hussein to ruin Magic Kingdom with campaign stop)
Chicago Tribune ^ | 1/17/12 | M Matthews, et al

Posted on 01/17/2012 2:56:58 PM PST by Recovering_Democrat

President Barack Obama is scheduled to unveil a new policy to boost tourism on Thursday and he's using a fairy-tale setting to do it -- the Magic Kingdom of Walt Disney World with the resort's iconic Cinderella Castle as a backdrop.

And if some of the Disney magic rubs off on his re-election bid too, then so be it.

The event, details of which were made public Tuesday, is the first of what is sure to be many election-year visits by the president to Florida.

Hey, it makes perfect sense to me. Anyone who believed nObama’s “Hope and Change” mantra back in ‘08 probably lives in Fantasyland anyhow!

That fits. He does live in Fantasyland.

He should be a permanent fixture in Pirates of the Caribbean. He's a pirate of the taxpayer.

The Disney resorts were ruined a long time ago. They are overpriced cesspools. Obama would be just another reason to spend your vacation dollars elsewhere.

Another vacation for the dumbo who just got back from Hawaii, with the excuse that he is giving forth a plan on tourism, that way we pay for the trip and his campaign fund doesn’t have to.

As if he has to go to Florida at our expense to unveil this secret plan.

Anybody who hasn’t had enough Obama is a Lunatic or a deaf ,dumb, and blind hermit.

I see Fox announced that Obama plans to accept his nomination in the Bank of America Stadium in NC. The country’s first robo acceptance?

That confirms it.

Barry the Imposter is just as much a fairy tale as Cinderella.

Yeah, really. How much of the park will be shut down for this stunt, and will people who have already purchased tickets be reimbursed for the reduction of services? I doubt it.

More details here “http://www.clickorlando.com/President-Obama-to-visit-Walt-Disney-World/-/1637238/8259008/-/6hd75w/-/index.html";
—including stuff like
“will make it easier for international tourists from countries such as China and Brazil to obtain travel visas—”...”—by cutting wait times for potential visitors to obtain travel paperwork” “The action is part of the president’s “We Can’t Wait” agenda of executive actions that—” ...”—don’t require congressional approval.”

Oh great, harder for us to leave anywhere, much less move around the anywhere in the US, easier for them to get in and go anywhere.

Well this brings up a great side point.
If you hate Disney,and everything they’ve become, but want a bigger experience for your kids, where does one go? Is Universal Orlando acceptable?
(keeping in mind, we love the good ol’ American vacation stuff too, like airshows and museums and we do that regularly)

No, that unicorn will take a separate Air Force plane. Followed by the one for Mooshie, and then a different for Bo.

I hope he goes on the Small Small World ride. That song is enough to drive him batty for the next six months.

Oh, geez! Now I’ve got that song in my head. I won’t be able to get to sleep tonight.

>> scheduled to unveil a new policy to boost tourism on Thursday<<

He’s going to quit taxing the sh*t out of me to support his legions of deadbeat lazy slugs so I can actually afford to take my family on vacation this year?

Oh...wait...THAT’S the fantasy...
