The pool report on President Obama's trip to Roanoke, Virginia says that more than 20 people fainted during the president's speech this evening.

"TV viewers may have heard POTUS pointed out a couple of faintings during the rally in downtown Roanoke," writes the pool report. "In fact, fire officials say more than 20 people fell out during the course of the speech. There were waves of exclamation as one person after another swooned."

Obama sucks so much that the air pressure in the rest of the room was down below 500 millibars.

Behold the cult of Obama.

The feeling you get before you faint is a dreadful one.

All the Obama worship aside, I would hope these people got medical attention, and were given a few bottles of water to drink.

That is because the only people still buying his snake oil already have problems in the brain pan area, poor blood supply and such. Plus they are not actually passing out, they are probably just falling asleep.

Live theatre.

Much like the MADD Mom's "victim impact panel" everybody arrested (not necessarily convicted) of driving around with a whiff of alcohol on their breath is ordered to attend (and pay for).

The Zer0 kooks really need to g-i-v-e i-t u-p. They ain't gonna reserect the Obama of old.

HE HAS A RECORD... one that is tainted with destruction, division, hatred, dishonor and arrogance.

Faked swooning only makes them look pathetic...

Scary stuff. I’m seeing firsthand how Adolph Hitler managed to come to power. If we don’t stop this madman (Obama), we here will soon be crushed under the jackboots of his brown shirted thugs.

I ‘fainted’ at a Herman’s Hermits Concert when I was 14. I wasn’t paid but I had noticed that anyone who fainted was taken backstage. It was cool. I got to meet them. Never mind that I was faking. I had a great time!

Are they trying this old trick from his last campaign again? Documented here on FR to be fake and performed, on que, from speech to speech and city to city to affirm his god-like power.

Uh, yeah.

"Seriously, WTF?"

Drudge is reporting that an Obama campaign worker died at the Chicago headquarters. That restaurant owner died after he hugged her. Who's next?

Seriously, was "fell out" the actual phrase used in the report? Where I'm from this is strictly "urban" terminology to describe fainting or passing out. It's never used as "official" language.

Arrested, jailed, driver license suspended (up to 3 times), mental health evaluation, driver school, victim impact panel, two days in jail, fines, ignition interlock for a year and a lifetime of grief.
