Skip to comments.Obama makes speech in a couple's GARAGE... and even his hosts might not vote for him
Posted on 05/12/2012 5:12:56 PM PDT by EveningStar
As leader of the free world President Obama will be used to making speeches to millions of people around the globe.
So he might have felt the occasion was a little beneath him yesterday when he stopped off in Reno, Nevada, to deliver an address outside a couple's garage.

The Garage President - LOL!
Oh the irony is an electric car in the garage had decided to self-immolate whilst Obama spoke.
They accidentally set up a forced perspective - same thing used in the Lord of the Rings trillogy to make normal (OK, a little short) actors look like hobbits.
Utterly incompetent, but that shouldn’t be a surprise...
The incredible shrinking president? It does look weird.
In 2000, I saw George Bush speak from the back of a train. After the speech, I walked up the track a ways, figuring he’d be inside schmoozing with the bigwigs by then. The departing train pulled by, and W was standing on the little balcony at the rear of the last car, accompanied by one security guy. He made eye contact with everyone along the way, and acknowledged each of us. I got a thumbs up. Having worked for a Clintonista, I was struck by the difference between a politician who sees a crowd as a faceless group of adoring fans that he’s entitled to by right, and a politician who sees each one as an individual human being. The SS would still have wanded each of the Reno neighbors, but Bush probably would have shown up with a tub of beer and tailgated with them for an hour.
This was in Nevada, right? There is the Beltway, and there is the driveway. And what happens in the driveway stays in the driveway.
Wow, the neighbors were lined up one deep.
Seeing this headline, I would have bet right of the bat it was from the Mail.
Gimmicks, distractions and symbolism over substance.
Call 1: Barack Obama? You f'ing POS! *click*
Call 2: Barack Obama? FUBO! *click*
Call 3: Barack Obama? Get out of our White House, you filthy Marxist usurper, and drag your fat beard out with you on her fat behind! *click*
Call 4: Barack Obama? May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your Mooslim azz!!! *click*
Either Tots is behind that black knee-high screen, or it’s there so you can’t see him kicking the crap out of some fat little black girl.
But, but his personal popularity is so high there’s no way anybody wouldn’t want to vote for him after meeting the “messiah.”
Dem’s union neighbors, lad. Union scale.
Charge it to the Taxpayers. ‘Bout time they paid us their fair share.
Is that black curtain there to hide totus?
KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK
“Hi, can I make a speech in your driveway?”
(female voice) “Him again”?
Secret service needs a victory after humiliation.
Must keep mouth shut.
Does this qualify as Haiku?
Honey, you wanna walk out in the front yard and see the President make a speech?
Nah, I’m watching an info-mercial.
That’s so funny...he’s definitely sinking lower and lower.
I think Moochelle is in the Jeep eating french fries...
A thinking-of-you gift from Larry Sinclair.
Hubby and I saw part of this speech Live on tv yesterday. Hubby immediately asked where the teleprompter was because Obambi was speaking so awkwardly and looking down at his cue cards or whatever had the speech on it. Then we turned the channel. We did not see the lack of people. The media is so selective in what they show. Lol
totus is behind the black screen.
Still looks very weird. He is tiny compared to those others folks even factoring slope and distance, like the situation room photo.
Remember, he uses a TelePrompTer to speechify to 5th graders, lies when he doesn’t have to. Don’t doubt they photoshop as a matter of course.
The media is and always has been his “crowd”.
Thank you so much....tells the whole story in my mind!
That was not always the case...he tried to “ditch” that flag stuff early in his term....really didn’t go over too well with folks who kinda love this Country!
This has to be fake, I see no TelePrompTers....
It's to hide the couples dog who came up and peed on his leg during the speech. He got all wee wee'd up.
Look at his teeny head here as well.
That table must be huge!
"...and in the Category of Worst President Ever, the nominees are, Barack Obama; Jimmy Carter; James Buchanan, Jr.; and John Tyler. May I have the envelope, please? And the winner is BARACK OBAMA!"
"Uh, er, uh, I-I-I would, uh, er, that is, I-I-I, (where's my-my-uh-my TOTUS!?!!) like to --- to, uh, saaaaAAYY ahh a few words...".
Strong competitors all.
Puhlease, they’re in the bag. “After long deliberations, we decided to vote for Zero...”. “We met him”, yadda, yadda, yadda.
“Thanks for stopping by Mr. President. Could you take this garbage bag and set it out by the curb when you leave?”
This was a set up by a couple who get $240 per month from someone else to help pay off a debt they willingly assumed but couldn’t really afford. Such is the give and take of our new democracy.
They probably used the second mortgage to pay for that fancy Jeep.
Yes! Look at the size of those coffee mugs!
I’d like to see him sitting in a home with someone who REALLY needs the help, and him trying to explain why things are getting even worse... Not talking to someone who is still in their (very nice) home, with a new SUV/Jeep! I’m not faulting these people, but if these are the kind of folks that “need help” then I don’t even want to know how bad my personal condition economically is according to their scale.
