Profedius: Maybe if people would stop believing what they are told as fact and take the time to do a little research they would stop voting for complete failures with the wrong ideas like Obama every republican candidate for the last 50 years.

Gee, writing an homage to satan is he?

Jesus, who in the fark thought that putting the god damn president in a god damn dive bar scribbling on the wall under a caricature of satan would be a good idea.

Jesus, I better speed up those Mandarin lessons.


Yo dawg, I heard ya like Jesus, so we put a Jesus in your Jesus so you can Jesus while you Jesus.

Jesus.

That's Guy Fieri, not Satan. Though perhaps someone that works for Guy in one of his restaurants may beg to differ.

Doesn't whining in each and every thread you are in ever get tiresome?

Litig8r: groppet: Yeah I dont think the Secret Service lets the president "wander" anywhere, without searhing the place top to bottom.

You'd be surprised -- most of the security lies in the fact that these sorts of public appearances aren't planned. There's a list of place he might decide to visit while he's in any town, and the decision to go to one happens while they're rolling. Basically the president walks in and that's the first anyone (outside of a half-dozen people who made the decision a few minutes prior) knows about it. Sure, he has security around him when he goes in, but the surprise value of just showing up prevents any planned stuff. And the physical security on him prevents direct attacks while he is present. This kind of stuff is actually a lot safer for him than showing up at scheduled events.


Pretty much THIS.

Barbecue Bob: HMS_Blinkin: INeedAName: gilgigamesh: Cute picture, but come on.

Unless by "wandered" you mean "orchestrated a carefully staged photo-op as part of a vast propaganda effort to bolster the president's badly sagging support in the 18-24 year old demographic," you are being pretty gullible, Subs.

Citation? This guy seems to be one of the most popular presidents with college students from what I have seen/heard.

Yeah, he's full of shiat. I'm 23, and I can tell you that exactly no one my age likes Romney. They don't all support Obama necessarily, but kids tend to vote for the cool guy, and Obama just radiates COOL. Especially compared to Romney, who is possibly the least cool person in politics.


I might care if that demographic actually voted.

I saw this on reddit yesterday morning. This happened two nights ago.

Charisma was NOT Obama's dump stat!

That is going to be the most interesting thing about this year's election; how Romney fares against Obama in personal appearances.

2012-04-25 02:14:50 PM  

Profedius: Wow you Obama lovers are really stupid about how things work. This was a stage event the president doesn't just wander around anywhere this was planned well in advance and the secret service was there hours if not the day before preparing. Obama is having trouble with the younger vote, because he is not as popular with them as he was in 2007. This isn't about Mitt getting the younger vote as much as it is about getting the younger people to vote, because they tend to go with the liberal candidate. Maybe if people would stop believing what they are told as fact and take the time to do a little research they would stop voting for complete failures with the wrong ideas like Obama.


How dare Oblacka encourage young people to vote!!!
They should stay ignorant like the old people of today were when they were young!!
How dare Obamajammafarto encourage critical thinking and education!!

Of course it's planned. Who cares why he did it asshat? He did it and that's a cool thing.

I hate all politicians... but I think I hate republicans and their followers the most. People like you for example.

I enhanced the picture and he is writing "Thanks Big Guy! Hail satan! less than three, Signed Barack Obama"

Probably, but it is entirely possible he did just wander in, Clinton used to do this all the time while he was Prez and it infuriated the Secret Service. Not everything is scripted to the inch and syllable.

Republicans in 2008: "The only reason Obama won is because of the young adult vote."

Republicans in 2012: "Obama is screwed because young adults don't vote."

I May Be Crazy But...: ackb4r: College students are adults.

Heh heh heh. That's cute.

Seriously, though. You're right legally speaking, and probably he could have used a better word, but I'm not convinced that most college students are mature enough to count as adults.


I'm not convinced that most adults are mature enough to be counted as adults, so what's your point?

HOW DARE OBAMA WALK INTO A BAR! If he needs a break, he should withdraw to a rural Texas compound, get beaked up on coke and start clearing brush like some kind of maniac hermit. You know, a pastime worthy of the office.

2012-04-25 02:26:58 PM  
As a right-wing conservative, gun-toting, party supporting Amurican I can say I'm happy to see him in a bar. If he ended up shiatfaced, in some strange girl's apartment and asleep in a pool of his own barf on the bathroom floor...well, I'd say he's 100% in touch with my segment of our society.

So let me get this straight. He backs the Catholics into a corner and the Republicans go on the attack saying that women that use birth control are whores and now he goes to Chappell Hill and Boulder and hangs out with college kids and the Republicans are saying that these kids don't count. Well played Obama. Well played.

BTW - the Duke Sucks reference last night was pretty stellar.

Yes, well documented. He was known for hitting burger joints and bars on the fly. SNL even pariodied it.

Somebody who doesn't know the difference between silverware and "silver wear" would be excited about meeting Obama. Probably a liberturd arts major, most likely an English or education major. "Yay NEA, keep the union strong and ruining our schools so everyone will be just as stupid as me {sic}."
 
2012-04-25 02:43:38 PM  

ManRay: I'm not a fan of the President at all, but if he "wandered" into my regular bar (even if it is a photo op) I would think that is cool enough to want to get a picture with him. I can't say I would kiss his ass, but I would be respectful.

If I was President I would do this all the time. I like to see the office treated as little like a king or someone else untouchable as much as possible.


I'm old enough to still be upset that you can't drive past the front gate of the White House on PA avenue like you could when I was a kid. Back then my dad taught me that this was one of the things that made our country great: That the WH, and the Halls of Congress were open to regular people to walk into and observe whenver they wanted, that our government wasn't keep away from the people behind high walls and fences.

*sigh*

I am independent. It kind of proves my point about people not taking the time to look into matters before they assume. Just because I know Obama's ideas are wrong people assume I am a republican or believe their ideas are right. We also see that because I said young people tend to vote for the liberal candidate that an assumption was made that I think young people shouldn't vote. There is also a matter of misguided attack post but not against what I am saying, but instead directed at me which is most often the tactic of the weak minded.

It is important to know that the event was staged even though I agree it was pretty cool, because taking things at face value is what gets us all into trouble which was my whole point. When people just read the news or hear the news and take it as fact without looking at the big picture then take that to the polls we end up with a failure of a government that is involved in way too many aspects of our lives.

This isn't about democrat, republican, black (which he isn't) or white it is about people refusing to think for themselves and allowing themselves to be led along and that makes them stupid.
