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.

I wonder if a card deck in Obamaville has 57 cards?

All jokers and queens.

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.

I’ll get around to taking care of you old gals later when you’re no longer “useful”, he “quipped” to him himself.

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