Obama speaks to 15,000 while ignoring 2 million

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?

    Who coached those flag waving Obamunists in Minnesota on how to flail their little american flags around? They look like those desparate North Koreans who hope the dear leader will toss them a crumb of food if they outwave the people standing next to them . It pains me to see americans acting like dogs begging for table scraps….. .http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjXQZa3soAw

    Hmmm, speak before a relatively tiny crowd of likely hand selected supporters, or confront a real slice (maybe the whole pie!) of Americans that see what you are doing and plain don't like it.


    Maybe he couldn't find a teleprompter big enough…

    I heard this story once I will share with you. A professor was speaking with his class and asked them how the felt about socialism. Most of the students raised their hands agreeing it seemed like a good thing. So the professor said, "Fine then we will run the class the same way. After a test is taken I will average all the grades and that will be the entire classes grade." Well the first test many studied but not everyone. Those that studied really hard would have gotten an A. The few who didn't study would have failed but because the ones who did study the grade averaged out to a B. The second test came and fewer studied as hard because they didn't feel it was fair to carry the weight of those who didn't study. The second test average was a C-. By the third test almost nobody studied because they knew that almost nobody was studying. The third test was a D-. By the end of the semester everybody was failing. Point is Socialism doesn't work because you don't get rewarded for hard work. Therefore no drive to work hard.

    Well it goes to show that President Obama has not gotten it that there are more Americans out there that are angry with him then those who support him. Just that the pictures and videos of the national tea party gathering proves once and for all what real everyday Americans are thinking. Got to remember that not only the ones who could go down there were there but also those who were like I, many more, their in spirit. Here is the Free Republic posting of this article. Excellent article SOS. Thank-you. :)=^..^=
