Skip to comments.Obama Plans To Connect With Regular Folks on Minnesota Trip
Posted on 06/25/2014 8:10:14 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
With his job approval rating at a low ebb and his policy agenda stymied in Congress, President Barack Obama is trying again to show a common touch and convince more Americans that he is still fighting for their interests.
The latest move in Obama's empathy campaign will come Thursday when he plans to meet with a mother identified by White House officials as "Rebekah" of Minneapolis. She wrote to the president to explain her day-to-day economic problems; he read the letter and decided to reach out to everyday people like her around the country.

Ok, I will admit it. That made me puke.
latest rumor is that Rebekah of Minneapolis ....plays golf
Obama , WOOT , Photo op time
He’ll be stopping by the maximum security prisons to visit his sons?
Rebekah probably works for a union leader or is related to the local Democrat ward chairman.
Regardless of what it wants, unless the regular folk are on welfare and/or black, the chances are really good that only union members will meet with him.
Oh, barf me a dumpster load.
Lucky us. We get him for two whole days...
I despise being called “folks”. Instant turn off.
The Elite crosses the tracks! SMH!
Is he going to Lake Wobegon?
So His Lowness is visiting the “Folks” again. I suppose he’ll tell her to put air in her tires, go to school to become an ATM, and grow some arugula for spare change.
Everything old is new again. I remember a picture of Jimmy Carter meeting with a “regular family” in their home when his popularity was tanking and the world was going to Hell.
Out working to get Franken re-elected and Keith Ellison Islamic connection.
Oh, but he is having a town hall meeting to interact with the “folks”. However, it is invitation only so you have to bring kneepads and a pre-approved question.
Someone needs to take Barry for a snipe hunt.
Why not pivot to jobs again (for the 19th time)?
obama Plans To Connect With Regular Folks on Minnesota Trip.... will he go fishing? Eat some cheese curds?
I dare him to go into North Minneapolis by himself.
(kinda like Detroit)
Or a muslim.
Aren’t there a lot of Somalis in Minnesota?
Is he going to go get a “huntin’ license?”
“Lucky us. We get him for two whole days...”
If he screws up my drive to/from work I’m gonna be pissed.
I think he is only coming here because he wants to golf in all 57 states before his term as dictator expires.
Come on! It’s working! He’s created 9.4 jobs, doncha know?
Today’s my last day of the week. Where I’m at, he definitely would have impacted my commute.
Ask him to spell ‘Minnesota’! That ought to be good for a laugh.
This is just another excuse for Obama to take a vacation. It’s obvious that he and the Mrs. hate the White House and that they intend to milk the taxpayers for all the goodies they can get in the time they have left.
It’s surprising, and very heart-warming, that ‘the president who cares’ can find the time to talk to ‘the common folk’ when he’s so busy stealing everyone’s money and f*cking up our nation’s foreign policy - not to mention encouraging the Moslems to murder humanity and destroy the planet.
Obviously, the guy’s all heart.
Populism? Demagoguery? Channeling Huey Long?
The saps will eat it up.
I certainly would like to conncet with him.
Rebekah had better be a member at Interlachen.
I wish he would connect himself to a soul.
We can laugh at this all we want, but this will work.
Regular folks? Let me guess: he’s going to a transgender support group meeting.
I’m sure he will avoid connecting with Americans who live in Minnesoooooda!
as if the road construction around here is not enough of a traffic issue already...
I suggest Plymouth ave and Penn Ave N...
I remember when there was a McDonalds there I grew up on the south side of basset creek by Highway 12 (now 394)...
not any more..
Thing is, Zero is loved by the people that live in that area.. the thugs would likely protect him.
AN EMPATHY CAMPAIGN!!! WTF???
This is allegedly the most powerful man in the free world. The leader of the free world. And he’s on an empathy campaign??? WTF
No doubt he will have a parade of victims that are too stupid to realize their lives suck because of liberal democrat policies and Obamanomics. He will speak at a college or two near the nicest golf course, spew his usual rhetoric about those “other guys” who caused all the problems, the go golf.
HOW DO PEOPLE KEEP FALLING FOR THIS???
Could this be the same Rebekah of Sunnybrook Farm ?
She would not be a stooge for this lying Marxist ass
Which American Rebekah will he visit?
Rebekah Nagler is an assistant professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota.
Rebekah Moses of the Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women as a Program Manager specializing in Policy, She was honored to work in Kansas City, KS as a bilingual community-based advocate at El Centro, Inc.’s ¡Sí, se puede!
Rebekah Nett, a Minnesota attorney, representing a debtor, who seems mad both mad as in angry, and mad as in bats**t crazy pants. Shes mad at the lender, and shes mad at the judge.
But mostly, shes mad at Catholics. Dirty, dirty Catholics .
And then some...
Another day of campaigning, another day of nothing actually being done about it.
Obama is an IDIOT...he doesn’t want to do any work, he just wants to keep campaigning as if he wasn’t already responsible for the mess this country is in!
Hey, DUDE, you ‘won’, you own it!
White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said in an e-mail that Obama will meet Rebekah in order to “spend a day in her shoes,” and talk to her family and community members about “the steps we need to take as a country” to help people get ahead.
“When the president travels to Minnesota, he’ll launch the first in a series of day-in-the-life visits across the country this summer,” Pfeiffer said.
From the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:
“The president had long planned a trip to the Twin Cities for a private fundraiser Thursday night.
“Obama said in the video that he looked forward to listening to Rebekah’s story, which he said was common among the thousands of letters he receives.
“’There are actually policies out there that could end up making a difference in her life if we could get Washington to work on her behalf,’ he said.”
Regular Folks = Crackers
“Lucky us. We get him for two whole days...”
Better ye than me. LOL!
