Massive crowds greeted President Obama upon his arrival in San Jose, Costa Rica today, drawn out into the streets to celebrate The One in part because – they don’t have to work.
From the White House pool report:
Overwhelming crowds, in the thousands, greeted the motorcade between the airport and the hotel where POTUS is having a meet and greet with embassy personnel. It appears that the government of Costa Rica has declared a national holiday. That might explain in part the affluence and the enthusiasm. “Welcome Mr. President! Blessings” read one makeshift sign. Others waved US and local flags, many were snapping pictures. Some stood on the highway itself, only leaving one lane for the vehicles to go through.
Hotel reached at 2:26 amid a heavy display of security forces. We are holding in the vans.
Apparently, Obamania is not dead yet, thought he has to go overseas – where insurance premiums aren’t rising because of Obamacare – to find it.
