(Investors Business Daily)   Obama's motorcade didn't stop and buy lemonade from a girl selling it on an Iowa roadside, so that means Sarah Palin is automatically president and Obama has to receive an Indian burn from former US astronaut Ken "Sox" Bowersox   (news.investors.com) divider line 105

oh fark this is so much bullshiat. there's absolutely no proof whatsoever any of that happened (or didn't happen)
farking conservative planted story.

I cannot even wrap my head around this nonsense anymore. It's starting to make me cry blood....

Am I dying?
 
2012-08-20 10:54:04 AM
So?

Who cares?

Does the President have to stop at every foodstuffs sales?

Plus, although I dislike Obama a lot, I do not want any harm to come to him. Stopping like that in an area that has not been made secure is a dangerous security situation in which he could be assaulted or even killed.

Sorry, magazine/little girl, the world does not revolve around you

"But the moment that sticks out in our mind was something that didn't happen..."

Just like most of the right's criticism of Obama.

You guys are really trying to make me regret renewing my TF today, aren't you?

Ah, harkening back to those wonderful days of yesteryear. When little Susie Duncan would set up her lemonade stand,
the words hilariously misspelled, and the summer breeze wafted through the trees, each leaf joining the next in a chorus
that, if one listened closely, would sing the anthems of freedom and enterprise.


Oh those glorious times. So pure. So wondrous. So TV inspired and nonexistent.

That's all they got. Their candidates want to destroy what's left of the middle class and turn back over a century's worth of progress to fulfill their own greed and that of their patrons. Obama is trying to do what's right for the future and is a genuinely good person. They have to make shiat up, or at least exaggerate non-stories to make him seem like less of a good guy. Because their guys are assholes.

Can you imagine the media coverage if a president of the United States, the most powerful man in the world, actually stopped his important, snaking motorcade on the spur of the moment to buy out a little girl's pitcher of homemade lemonade?

Yup. "President Photo-Op," "calculated move," "cynical exploitation of a young child."

"A veteran foreign and national correspondent, Andrew Malcolm joined Investor's Business Daily October 2011. He formerly served on the L.A. Times Editorial Board and was a Pulitzer finalist in 2004. He is the author of 10 nonfiction books and father of four."

So he wrote ten books, and created an additional four through some sort of procreation?
 
2012-08-20 11:04:44 AM
His team is failing. In 2008 they would have been all over this.

They know it's tough to counter the penetrating observations and deep thoughts of Andrew Malcolm. This could possibly be Lemonadegate.

You let gays marry and pretty soon people will be farking books and fathering all kinds of weird hybrids.

Obama is killing jobs because he didn't buy actually buy lemonade or beer as he promised in his campaign.

St_Francis_P: By ANDREW MALCOLM

That explains it.


I don't even click on Investors links any more because they're always some catty coont piece by Malcolm on Obama.

This is a too-late hit piece trying to equate Romney's disasterous overseas trip with Obama's swing through Iowa. Remember, whatever wrong Romney commits, Obama's commited one much bigger so it's a non-issue.

Unfortunately, Romney could build an $11 million cabin with the logs in his eyes, while Obama would be lucky if his splinter would be big enough to pick his teeth with.

And what's with all of Malcom's imagery? Is it a portrayal of big, indifferent government or is he just really envious of a black man's penis?

As the president's big black armored bus began to waddle its way out of town...

Can you imagine the media coverage if a president of the United States, the most powerful man in the world, actually stopped his important, snaking motorcade...

As Obama's huge ominous vehicle neared the little girl's lemonade stand... (oh lawd!)

But the president's big black bus rolled right on by.


But don't dare call him racist.
 
2012-08-20 11:17:59 AM
As Obama's huge ominous vehicle neared the little girl's lemonade stand in Marshalltown, she fell to her knees. Perhaps in awe. More likely pleading.

But the president's big black bus rolled right on by.

He waved through the tinted windows.


Saddest last lines since A Tale of Two Cities.
 
2012-08-20 11:19:13 AM
Well, this certainly is far more egregious than cheating on your taxes for 10+ years!
 
2012-08-20 11:20:08 AM
Mitt Romney did just that during last fall's New Hampshire primary campaign.

#1 Mitt's was a staged stunt, his handlers set it up.
#2 Even if Obama wanted to stop, the Secret Service would have said no....there are too many extremists around thanks to the current state of hate filled/violent rhetoric.
#3 Campaign writers get bored.....really, really bored.
 
2012-08-20 11:21:13 AM
The President typically doesn't buy food from strangers. Safety thing. Anytime the President "just shows up" at a diner or state fair, the Secret Service has thoroughly scoured the place, including the food prep.
 
2012-08-20 11:21:16 AM
Stuck in traffic thanks to the motorcade
Got to wait while the Pres buys lemonade
 
2012-08-20 11:21:48 AM
The editorialist was concerned that Obama was not handling his campaign right and missed an opportunity to appeal to the small businessman.

Even Nixon stopped at my Dad's gas station and said hello.

NIXON.
 
2012-08-20 11:22:44 AM
And then Obama being an idiot he probably would have said something unbelievably stupid like "Lemon. Wet. Good."

Oh wait.
 
2012-08-20 11:23:11 AM
President Obama was back in Iowa for several days this past week. He has winning memories there. But the fact that an incumbent president feels it necessary to invest three of only 79 precious remaining days there says how close the presidential race now is.

My Brain! How it hurts!

So because Obama is spending 3 days in Iowa, that means that the race is close? As opposed to frantically stopping in every state (or even every battleground state)?
 
2012-08-20 11:23:36 AM
Mitt Romney would have stopped for lemonade. His sensors tell him that lemonade is Lemon. Wet. Good.
 
2012-08-20 11:24:03 AM
This is Obama's Lemon-based Waterloo. Lemonloo?

Whatever it is, it's bad news.
 
2012-08-20 11:24:03 AM
Generally, the Secret Service hates to have to improvise on where the President goes and does when he's out and about. There's enough crazies in the world that would love to pop the President if only for the eternal fame that goes with it.

So I can certainly see how there'd be little deviation from the planned routes and stops. Sorry, Little Susie, but that's life.
 
2012-08-20 11:24:03 AM
Want to know why he didn't?

"Oh Obama will stop to drink lemonade from a little girl?" Asked the guy with access to a little girl and something orderless/tasteless that's also toxic.

Sad but true.
 
2012-08-20 11:24:17 AM
Obviously he didn't stop because he hates little white girls. That's the only reason. The only thing he hates more than lemonade is little white girls.

She should have been named La'Taniya and it should have been a Purple Drank stand. He would have stopped then.

Obama found time to drop by the local Mosque and tour 3 abortion clinics and a gay leather bar, but didn't have time to stop his big black bus with tinted windows to buy a lemonade from a small business owner.

So what is the origin of the "Sarah Palin is automatically president" meme? I tried googling the other day, and all I found was Fark headlines and complaints about the meme. Where did it come from?
 
2012-08-20 11:29:06 AM
It wasn't a little girl, it was a robot filled with explosives. We're lucky he didn't stop or else we would be swearing in Biden.

/see I can make up shiat too.

The Little Girl said, "I thought you was mad at me, Barry."
"No," said Fartbama. "No,Little Girl. I ain't mad. I never been mad, an' I ain't now. That's a thing I want ya to know." The voices came close now. Fartbama raised the gun and listened to the voices.
The Little Girl begged, "Le's do it now. Le's get that place now."
"Sure, right now. I gotta. We gotta." And Fartbama raised the gun and steadied it, and he brought the muzzle of it close to the back of The Little Girl's head. The hand shook violently, but his face set and his hand steadied. He pulled the trigger.
 
2012-08-20 11:29:28 AM
The hits just keep comin'.

That farm family with all the windmills that President Quixote loves to laud turns out to be Republicans and informed reporters after Obama's visit that he sure wasn't getting their votes this time.

Uh... so Obama loves to laud the windmills that he attacks as President Quixote? I prefer my metaphors shaken, not stirred. And I'm sure Obama was chagrined that he did something good for a dude who won't vote for him.

Many strangers, even non-parents, find it hard to drive by such genuinely small businesses without stopping to feign an immense thirst that can only be quenched by a 50-cent cup of tepid lemonade. And then, claiming a lack of change, they suggest the youngster just keep a dollar bill. It's the way American adults encourage enterprise and independence in the next generation--and feel good about it.

Lol what? I've had no problems with driving right on past those lemonade stands. I don't want your kid's goober juice when I can stop by a gas station and get something with less mud in it.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure your blog (which sucks, btw) is making this entire incident up.

I particularly enjoyed the part of the article where the author spoke to the little girl and her parents, getting her name and her side of the story. Because, you know, she actually exists.
