  1. 12:05 pm || Participates in a discussion with a family at a private residence

    So just what is Obama going to be discussing with this family? Did their $3 “Obama for America” contribution check bounce or something?

  2. He hasn’t taken questions at a town hall type meeting since September. He used to do lots of them but everything is so scripted now that they won’t take a chance that he might slip up.

    The question and answer periods were somewhat interesting even though the questions were mostly softballs and hugs and kisses. I used to love the way he’d ramble on for 20 minutes.

    It was at one of those question and answer periods where he described himself as being honest to a fault. It occured in 2009 and was not noticed at the time so I brought it back:
    Barack Obama is Honest to a Fault

    • It was also at a town hall where the woman talked about having to eat hot dogs. Wonder where she is now? Probably nothing left but peas.

    • Honest to a fault? Obama? Ha ha ha… Great job GJ. Don’t think I’ve seen that ‘aw shucks’ moment where he looks down and puts his hand in his pocket as he’s describing how wonderful he is. You must have a treasure trove of his most candid moments to put to video.

  3. Going after those young voters at high school again huh Barry? Some of them might be 18 by November. Have to get a new recruiting class, since you have probably lost most of the ones that were 18 in 2008.
    Now I see Michelle is doing shows on The Disney Channel??
    Amazing, simply amazing.

  4. So if you boil down his schedule to the real items, he spends 30 minutes getting briefed, 60 minutes talking to a family and 60 minutes talking to teens (and their union teachers). Wow, I wonder how he stands the pressures.

  5. Day 1 of the “I’m gonna quit you, baby” Tour . (Apologies to Led Zeppelin)
    I hear Shaker Hts is Uber democratic. I don’ t expect a’ Joe’ moment.

  6. I’m just going to say it – Obama is a political child predator! He targets junior and senior high schoolers while his wife is hugging all of the little black children. It really is creepy!!! This country will not be safe until both of these evel entities are gone!

  7. The previous commenters make a valid point about MrO’s constant appearences at high schools and colleges. There are two advantages to this kind of venue; one, he speaks to the politically naive, and two, he is usually guaranteed to have a full house.

    The real news will be when he announces a speaking engagement at the “Happy Trails Senior Center” in anywhere, USA.

    • It’s a captive audience. It always is, these days, for both of them. The audience can’t get away – it’s like the Military.

      • Yea, that’s what I was thinking. There is no way the kids aren’t going to pack into the auditorium to hear him. It’s more than a captive audience. It’s a FORCED audience. Just like with Castro, and Chavez, and The Dear Leader in North Korea (may he rot in hell).

  8. I’m curious of Obama’s choice speaking at Shaker Heights HS. Shaker is one of the most affluent suburbs of Cleveland with a 90% college matriculation of its high school graduates yet the City of Cleveland was recently listed as the second poorest city in America and has some of the worst public schools. It’s easy to speak before a community whose residents are likely employed and doing well but what kind of reception would he get if he stepped into downtown Cleveland where the unemployment is high and its students drop-out rate is huge? I sense that Obama doesn’t want to step into the areas where he made so many promises that didn’t pan out.

  9. Tough day.
    What’s that going to cost us…
    3 hrs. on the ground in Cleveland?
    Fly commercial, or at least a small
    This guy is an embarrassment

  10. The idea that this is my “Presidents” schedule a couple days after his lengthy vacation makes me want to retch. Your laser like focus is more of a flickering candle, “Mr.” “President.” Pandering and scripted self-aggrandizement shall now commence, I am quite sure.
