Obama Makes Surprise Stops for Burgers and Veggies
Yahoo ^ | 7/5/12 | Mary Bruce | ABC OTUS News

Posted on 07/05/2012 8:37:13 PM PDT by NormsRevenge

President Obama made two surprise stops this afternoon as his campaign bus tour made its way through northern Ohio.

Heading to Sandusky, the president dropped in on diners at the Kozy Corners Family Restaurant in Oak Harbor, where he mingled with local residents and ordered himself a burger.

On his way in, he met a little boy in the parking lot and couldn't help complimenting his spiky blue hair.

"I like that hair, man. I was thinking of getting some hair just like it," Obama said, according to pool reports. "What do you put in there to make it spiky? Product?"

Encouraged by his parents, the boy reportedly shook the president's hand.

Obama, accompanied by former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, then headed inside, where he was met with cheers and applause.

The president glad-handed his way through the dining room, saying hello to several elderly customers, chit-chatting with a young girl and, of course, cradling a baby.

One young girl showed the president her sketchbook. "You're very talented," he said as he flipped through the pages, before inscribing it "dream big dreams."

The president also stopped to talk with a group of white-haired women, who told him they have played pinochle together for decades.

"Tell the truth, the national press is here," the president joked. "Are you playing for money?"

The ladies confessed that they occasionally play for a dollar or a quarter. "I'm not going to take you on, especially now that I know you play for money," Obama quipped.

In the days of the Kennedys, they stopped for women and whiskey.. These days, it's burgers and veggies. Wimp nation or what? For shame, Dems.

Obama is not deserving of Ohio sweetcorn.
He deserves the field corn.

It’s like watching “The Jerk” with Obama in the starring role.

Unlike Steve Martin, though, Hussein is not acting.

Good grief, I can be awkward with strangers and small talk but Obama makes me look like “Mr. Smooth”. What a doofus.

No mention of how much time he’s actually spending ON the bus this trip. It’s top secret I guess...

...Obama made two surprise stops...

Surprise stops? By what measure? He has crafted every aspect of his life from day one and what he couldn't craft, he sequestered and sealed. Sorry, Obozo, but you don't spend the kind of money you have spent to sequester your past unless you have something to hide.

Can anyone imagine Eisenhower or Truman talking like that? Never mind Washington or Lincoln.

So does this “I’m cool” rountine get stale or what? nobama (and his asshat minuions) should be in prison for what they are doing to America. The problem is that many people get compromised by this planned, insincere, fake BS. Pray for November voting to kick this pretender out.

Meanwhile, a crowd of more than 100, some of whom began lining up as early as 8:30 a.m., was waiting for the president at James Day Park in Parma.

WoW! - 100 people showed up.

Methinks 0bama is doomed.

Parma?

ROFLMAO. When I was growing up it was known for “running blacks out of town on a rail.” And it wasn’t the underground railway, such as Oberlin, not too many miles away. Interesting choice, but then he’s not actually African American.

I remember when I was a kid some guy called in the radio show and was unintelligible. The radio host Kept asking “What are you doing? I cant understand you. are you eating something? What are you doing sir?

After some time the fellow became clear in his delivery and declared he was “eatin’ Kielbasi and drinkin’ whiskey”

LOL

LOL. I know I have both pierogies and kielbasa in my freezer. Mr. Jingeling, Jungle Larry, Romper Room, (drunken) Barneby- those were some good times as a kid. I think Dorthy Fuldheim might have given me an interest in politics though. Boy could she rant.

Samantha Martin, 22, recent college graduate from Garrettsville came with her mother Judi Gyulai. Martin helped with the Obama campaign in 2008. "One of the reasons why I'm here is to hear what he has to say about education," Martin said. "Everybody's been saying we need more jobs but we also need an education."

Samantha's a real rocket scientist.

Tim Conway worked for Channel 8 as a weatherman back then.
