Obama aims for 'day in the life' of (struggling to pay bills) Minnesota woman

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama headed to Minneapolis on Thursday, the first stop in series of summer road trips where he will aim to spend a "day in the life" of an ordinary American and persuade voters that the White House understands their challenges.

The trip is also aimed at reconnecting Obama with Democrats ahead of midterm elections where Republicans stand a good chance of taking control of the Senate, jeopardizing the chance to accomplish goals for his last two years in office.

Obama will have lunch with Rebekah Erler, an accountant in St. Paul with two young sons who told CBS Minnesota she struggles to pay the bills.

Erler, whose LinkedIn profile shows she was once a field organizer for Democratic Senator Patty Murray, wrote to Obama earlier this year to express her frustrations about the economy.

"We live, you know, a pretty modest lifestyle. We budget, we clip coupons, we shop at two grocery stores because we know what costs less, where," Erler said in the interview with CBS Minnesota ahead of the visit.

Obama will hold a town hall meeting with invited guests on Thursday, and on Friday will give a speech on the economy.

What an idiot. The world is on fire, people are dying in the Islamic cauldrons of world, and Obama is out there pandering to the emotions of low information voters hoping to use sob stories to raise money from the people that can least afford it.

Ayuh.

Sonofabitch oughta understand the problems. He caused'em. Doubled fuel prices, food up 40%, massive true unemployment, family incomes down.

We got us Obamacare, though. This is like having Baldacci in the White House, only at least Baldacci knew how to wash dishes. This incompetent Communist doesn't know how to do anything. "Good public speaker ..." my oss! This Affirmative Action Nincompoop Teleprompter Jockey would be laughed off the lectern at any Toastmaster Club in the country.

WTF were people thinking to pull the lever for this jerk ... twice? $5 gas and crucified Christians ... and he still has fervent support?

Ask this woman why she’s not married? Why has she chosen to raise two children on her own and now blames the system?

I do the same thing and I DON’T whine to the president about it.

Not to worry, Rebekah. He’ll bring his own smoking materials.

Isn’t this like Hilliary trying to identify with poor Americans because she’s dead broke.

What’s Obama worth these days? How much has he spent on vacations and golf? Oh yeah, he knows what we’re going through.

Just an average, ordinary, everyday mom who is struggling to make ends meet, who just happens to be a Dem activist and field organizer.

Ms. Erler lives in a Democrat controlled state with a high state income tax, high excise taxes and a labor loving Governor Dayton who even pushed to organize day care providers. Obama’s EPA policies will soon push electric rates in Minnesota by 41%. She would be better off to move to Wisconsin where Governor Walker has cut taxes or to neighboring South Dakota where there is no state income tax.

I’d invite him to my house, where *I* am engaging in a ‘normal day’ of my life, but he’s not fit to clean the cat box, and is therefore of no use to me. :)

This women will get to meet the person responsible for her bills being so high and her losing her job... wait, she will lose her job. Anything obama is around fails. I bet this is all scripted. She has been practicing her lines.

Do not feel sorry for her though as she supported a person who stole an election and is a full blown socialists.

FTA: field organizer for Democratic Senator Patty Murray

And let me guess... he'll go from there to a fundraising dinner at some billionaire's home, attended by a bunch of filthy rich people paying $25K apiece to attend.

Yes he is having a private dinner at some billionaire’s house
and AL FRANKIN is nowhere to be found.

I think he’s hiding in a closet somewhere. The local radio say that Frankin’s pulling numbers are so low, that he doesn’t want to be associated with the little p.u.s.s.

I’m prepping for a colonoscopy tomorrow, or I’d be flashing my FUBO sign. I’d rather be sick on the toilet than see that little pos.
