Posted on 05/28/2014 9:22:32 AM PDT by Nachum
President Obama went for a walk last week, and even mingled with some commoners beyond the White House walls. The surprise occasion was (shockingly) captured on camera and widely disseminated; the White House posted the raw video here.
Most of the commoners were thrilled to encounter the president walking amongst them. One woman was so excited, and remarked that it was like the best day of my life. One bro fist pumped while yelling: America! Freedom! Peace! Hope! And charity! [sic]
But not everyone was so impressed. At the 2:41 mark, you can see some disgruntled workers who are unable to get in their cars and drive home due to Obamas security entourage. And at 0:40 we see a couple that couldnt even be bothered to stand to greet the president.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list

I would love to have him come up as I was sitting there...and say to him...”Aren’t you that guy from Saturday Night Live.
I so try to respect the ‘office”
but this POS makes it impossible
I admire those who see through him
The pervert was giving candy to children.
Never stand when a pick pocket is around.
The land and the king are one.
Hey, she might have a very sad and pathetic life and this could very well be the best day for her.
What a concocted, put-up bunch of crap. Anybody here doesn’t believe that all these people were positioned and pre-selected and pre-screened beforehand?
His basketball star demeanor juxtaposed with his reputation for staging everything just doesn’t fly. Not even. He is a pResident besieged by realization he is an incompetent fool and no amount of ‘with the people’ kabuki will change that.
totally staged of course
I’ve given some thought now going on “years” as to what I would do if confronted face to face by Obama with him extending his hand. Would I be a hypocrite and gutless and just shake his hand and smile?
Answer still coming back to me is...... “I don’t know.”
If that is so maybe the King should go back to his land.:)
Wonder if that's her in the middle? I read somewhere she's a regular at these kinds of staged events.
“I admire those who see through him”
Stand? I’d think he’d want everyone to bow to him.
Or, to quote the French knight in Monty Python ....”I phart (sic) in your general direction.”
I think I would have to just turn and walk away.
Couldn’t trust myself, not to tell him that he is a treasonous blight upon America, the likes of which we have never seen, and that I pray we survive.
Is it wrong that writing those words, makes me wish I had the opportunity though?
What did he say to the lady in the food truck??? What was his mother’s name??
It was nothing but a photo op.
If he showed up on my front lawn...I’d shut the curtains.
Also indicates a general decline in manners and civility in our culture.
At one time everybody could be counted on to stand, shake the President’s hand and greet him politely, no matter how big a putz he was.
It’s the same thing that is responsible for all of the slovenly dress out there.
Or I could ask him how Reggie's doing and when they're going to hook up again!
“Couldnt trust myself, not to tell him that he is a treasonous blight upon America, the likes of which we have never seen, and that I pray we survive.”
I would stand up for that. I would tell him he has squandered a good part of this country’s future and that I teach my sons what a useless president he’s been. Yes, I would.
I would refuse to stand for Obama he has nothing to be respected for.
Thanks for the grin FRiend :)
You could never be in that position unless you agreed to it beforehand, it is so obviously prestaged and it would probably be made clear that you WILL be reasonably cordial or else. Only a naive person believes that this was just a casual stroll out to speak to strangers as it is made to appear. The people who didn’t stand up were told ahead of time to keep their seats to make it seem that they felt as comfortable as if their oldest and dearest friend had strolled up. It is all theatre, nothing more nor less.
I suffered through 3 minutes of Obama’s face and some of his words. I feel ill, disgusted, nauseous, ashamed, angry, embarrassed (that this FOOL, POS, is president).
I feel sad, for my country, knowing that we will never be rid of this guy. Whomever the next president is, on every issue of the day, the sycophant press will run to Obama so that he can undermine everything the current president has said or proposes.
“If I were still president ....Blah, Blah, Blah, and frickin Blah.”
“When I was president, ....Blah, Blah, Blah, and frickin Blah.”
“Under MY administration we ....Blah, Blah, Blah, and frickin Blah.”
“If you ask me, and you have, I would ....Blah, Blah, Blah, and frickin Blah.”
Thanks FRiend, if we are lucky, we won’t ever get the chance because they will finally pick a scandal, (my vote is for Benghazi, since we STILL don’t know where he was that night!),and Impeach his sorry behind....
Hey! We are dreaming, right?!
Yes, totally staged. Who still buys this crap?
He still remembers he grandfather’s ceremony, the flag, taps, he still gets choked up. I wonder if he held his crotch during the national anthem back then too.
The “bear” is loose?
Mr. President, did you get your Matt Drudge intel report this morning?
Only in a thoroughly post-biblical culture would someone name their kid Korah.
Num 16:32 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.
Looks like Hitler taking a stroll outside the bunker.
I once told someone I would not even cross the street to meet him. I remember the person was surprised by that. And then I see these fools literally running over to fawn over him. Thesis jus campaigning, folks. More campaigning. The only thing he is good at.
When are we going to wise up, and start getting some rent-a-mobs of our own?

I was in the capital for school back when Hilary was a senator. We were sitting in an underground corridor between the Hart Building and the Capital tram thingy. Our professor came of and excitedly said that Hilary had just walked by us. I immediately felt disgust that she was just a few feet away from me. I know I wouldn’t offer or accept any feigned pleasantry to 0. I know he hates me and wants to imprison/kill me and take my kids away. I live in light of that fact.
Someone probably said to POTUS:
“The natives are revolting”
And he probably answered: “Yes,they certainly are!”
If 0 was merely a putz, it would be one thing. That he’s a traitor with contempt for everything I love means he deserves scorn.
I wasn’t aware that politesse required me to stand for an employee.
I’d let my dogs out.
However, it doesn't explain why he has flies around him so often.
