Obama makes speech in a couple's GARAGE... and even his hosts might not vote for him
The Daily Mail ^ | May 12, 2012 | Nina Golgowski

Posted on 05/12/2012 5:12:56 PM PDT by EveningStar

As leader of the free world President Obama will be used to making speeches to millions of people around the globe.

So he might have felt the occasion was a little beneath him yesterday when he stopped off in Reno, Nevada, to deliver an address outside a couple's garage.

“Did the car stay awake?”

Oh the irony is an electric car in the garage had decided to self-immolate whilst Obama spoke.

Priceless.

They accidentally set up a forced perspective - same thing used in the Lord of the Rings trillogy to make normal (OK, a little short) actors look like hobbits.

Utterly incompetent, but that shouldn’t be a surprise...

The incredible shrinking president? It does look weird.

In 2000, I saw George Bush speak from the back of a train. After the speech, I walked up the track a ways, figuring he’d be inside schmoozing with the bigwigs by then. The departing train pulled by, and W was standing on the little balcony at the rear of the last car, accompanied by one security guy. He made eye contact with everyone along the way, and acknowledged each of us. I got a thumbs up. Having worked for a Clintonista, I was struck by the difference between a politician who sees a crowd as a faceless group of adoring fans that he’s entitled to by right, and a politician who sees each one as an individual human being. The SS would still have wanded each of the Reno neighbors, but Bush probably would have shown up with a tub of beer and tailgated with them for an hour.

This was in Nevada, right? There is the Beltway, and there is the driveway. And what happens in the driveway stays in the driveway.

The MSM would never be able to bleep the expletives fast enough. Last thing they'd want to report on is the view of real Americans.

Call 1: Barack Obama? You f'ing POS! *click*
Call 2: Barack Obama? FUBO! *click*
Call 3: Barack Obama? Get out of our White House, you filthy Marxist usurper, and drag your fat beard out with you on her fat behind! *click*
Call 4: Barack Obama? May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your Mooslim azz!!! *click*

Either Tots is behind that black knee-high screen, or it’s there so you can’t see him kicking the crap out of some fat little black girl.

But, but his personal popularity is so high there’s no way anybody wouldn’t want to vote for him after meeting the “messiah.”

KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK

“Hi, can I make a speech in your driveway?”

“No!”

“Yep”

So much I want to say about what would happen if he set foot on my property.

Secret service needs a victory after humiliation.

Must keep mouth shut.

Does this qualify as Haiku?

Hubby and I saw part of this speech Live on tv yesterday. Hubby immediately asked where the teleprompter was because Obambi was speaking so awkwardly and looking down at his cue cards or whatever had the speech on it. Then we turned the channel. We did not see the lack of people. The media is so selective in what they show. Lol

Still looks very weird. He is tiny compared to those others folks even factoring slope and distance, like the situation room photo.
Remember, he uses a TelePrompTer to speechify to 5th graders, lies when he doesn’t have to. Don’t doubt they photoshop as a matter of course.

"He brings a mini-stage with him? The black fabric/kevlar looking thing?"

It's to hide the couples dog who came up and peed on his leg during the speech. He got all wee wee'd up.

"...and in the Category of Worst President Ever, the nominees are, Barack Obama; Jimmy Carter; James Buchanan, Jr.; and John Tyler. May I have the envelope, please? And the winner is BARACK OBAMA!"

This was a set up by a couple who get $240 per month from someone else to help pay off a debt they willingly assumed but couldn’t really afford. Such is the give and take of our new democracy.

I’d like to see him sitting in a home with someone who REALLY needs the help, and him trying to explain why things are getting even worse... Not talking to someone who is still in their (very nice) home, with a new SUV/Jeep! I’m not faulting these people, but if these are the kind of folks that “need help” then I don’t even want to know how bad my personal condition economically is according to their scale.
