(ABC News) President Obama received a less than warm welcome and a warning upon arrival at the airport here on the second stop of his Iowa visit, which was aimed at recapturing some of the magic the state gave his run to the White House in 2008.
Greeting Air Force One as it touched down under sunny skies and sultry heat was a hand-painted banner draped across the top of an airplane hangar that reads, Obama Welcome to SUX We Did Build This. SUX is the airport code for Sioux City.
The message appeared to be a response President Obamas you didnt build that remark from a July campaign rally, when he was trying to explain that government not businesses constructed public infrastructure on which the economy relies. Republicans have used the four words to attack Obama as out of touch with the realities of owning and operating a small business.
The banner is a reminder that this part of the state remains hotly contested turf for both Obama and his Republican rival Mitt Romney, just as the campaign enters the home stretch.
Sioux City, which sits on the border with Nebraska in the northwest corner of the state, is territory Obama lost in 2008 to Sen. John McCain, even though he won the state overall. Obama won 49 percent of the vote here to McCains 50 percent, a difference of just 500 votes.
Obama also won the Iowa caucuses, an early confirmation that his message was resonating with Democrats.
Seeing the tiny letters for “welcome to” between the Obama and the SUX gives the story a little more zip. lol. No question about what was really being said here...
When I first saw the picture I thought it said “Obama sux.” It’s interesting that these words have come back to haunt him, and nothing the news media can do to cover it up.
That is really clever!
And it is great that SUX the Sioux City Airport was built with 100% Private Funding and is not like most other municipal airports which were build with tax payer money.
Obama memo to Transpotation Secretary Lahood: change airport code at Soiux Falls ASAP!!!
Just for the record, Bambi couldn’t care less what people think about him. That’s why he had a limousine built during his first days in office that can practically withstand a nuclear blast. His peeps are already in the bag (deluded blacks) and brainwashed liberals.
LOL .... magic? How about lies!
I saw a sign reading “Obama Sucks” on a telephone pole a couple of weeks ago. The word is getting around.
I disagree. I think he does care about what people think of him. All narcissists do. Ridicule is our best weapon. The Obama (welcome to) SUX sign and the empty chair are getting under his thin skin.
Do you have a link to support this contention about the financing? I tried to find one but can’t (the few articles I found indicated that Branson’s airport is the only one that is privately financed).
I need to verify this so I can win the innernets in a facebook argument!
that airport will suffer Chicago style payback - oops, forgot “Chicago’ is now a racist word...nothing to do with the decades of corruption and thuggery they’re famous for.
And I’d win a bet on any airports he’s going to in the future are getting a heads up threat that they’d better not allow this...
The people built the roads with taxpayer,(read employed people) money. And if there were no businesses around we wouldn’t need a road to nowhere.
LOL! Good one....
I needed that chuckle. :)
Does anyone know what the deal is with Jerome Corsi and the claim of meetings between Auchi and Obama??
Surprised that ABC is reporting this.
I understand that the prevailing joe-sixpack diagnosis of the Bam is narcissistic personality disorder, but I’m in the camp that he’s just your garden variety sociopath. His thin “nice guy” put-on is just a means to an end... his end, and that of his handlers.
