Mr. President, are we finished paying for your pep rallies? I mean, you were like the Homecoming King this week.
President Obama went to Columbus, Ohio Tuesday to speak to children at a high school about his new jobs act.
The president spoke to these adoring teenagers for 17 minutes! THAT’S ALL. And that includes being interrupted by the delirious crowd 44 times for applause, and several times for eruptions like, “Pass this bill! Pass this bill! Pass this bill! Pass this bill!”
You, taxpayer, flew him out there for this nonsense.
And then, silly people, you did it again!
The president jetted Wednesday to Raleigh, N.C., where he spoke to more star-struck young things at North Carolina State University.
This time we got 21 minutes out of him.
I’d say it’s a little more bang for the dollar, except that this time he was interrupted 72 times for applause, along with ample laughter and affirmations like, “I love you, Barack!”
You think I’m overstating this? From a report by WRAL in Raleigh.
Reynolds Coliseum took on a pep rally-like atmosphere in the hours before the speech as the N.C. State marching band played and the crowd rocked to the rhythm.
Thousands of N.C. State students lined up Tuesday to get tickets to Obama’s speech.
Why is he talking to children? Because he get’s interrupted by applause 72 times! I mean, seriously, why do you ask?
Adults realize that Obama is a faded rock star of questionable musical talent who had a couple of early hits but hasn’t been able to follow them up.
Another reason is that most of these impressionable kids will be old enough to vote in these key swing states, North Carolina and Ohio.
And, oh yeah, there’s the “jobs” bill.
