On April 15 when Americans held TEA Parties across the country, President Obama said he really didn’t notice them. Knowing that there was a large rally planned for Washington Saturday, rather than repeat his feigned ignorance of the April 15 rally, the president decided it was better “to get out of Dodge”.
So, rather than staying in Washington to find out what 2 million people thought about his health care plan, the president determined it was better to leave Washington to push his agenda on a friendly audience. This time his “pep rally” was in Minnesota, before an audience of 15,000.
Here is what it looked like in Minnesota. Hey, I thought he told us not to pay attention to the fear mongers?

Or how about this?
Hmmm. It seems to me, the president’s decision to stay away from Washington on Saturday is the height of audacity; much like Nero playing the fiddle while Rome burned. Or, perhaps, is it the ostrich burying its head in the sand?
