sure! he's spending tax payer money to bribe this couple into voting for him! For shame!

Tell the groom he can have the tax exemption for life once he's back from blowing up the asteroid.
 
2012-09-19 12:51:55 PM
Just more wealth redistribution by the Robin Hood in Chief
 
2012-09-19 12:57:19 PM
That's pretty cool, actually. I'll vote for him now. Yeah, not so much.

finding the President left you behind a wedding gift

Throw me down the stairs my hammer.

Stupid Classy and Respectful Obama. A real American would've shown up uninvited, eaten some cake, squeezed the brides boobs, and walk out like a champ.

This is only his first step to force all Americans to drink mint juleps. That sneaky bastard
 
2012-09-19 01:29:11 PM
Pfft. The julep cup wasn't even on the bridal registry. So thoughtless.

This attention to detail is the hallmark of a campaign that has its shiat together and can anticipate possible missteps before they happen. Not all the time, of course, but stories like these stand in sharp contrast to the Romney campaign's near daily effort to explain his words from the previous day.

Or claim that however they farked up, Obama farked up on the same thing but much much worse. Notice how quickly they tried to find something about class warfare to pin on Obama. (And laughingly came up with a stray use of "redistribution" from 14 years ago.)

It's clear that whatever roles Romney played at Bain, salesman wasn't one of them.

The interesting question is How DID Obama get them a gift so quickly? It ain't like you can pick stuff up with the Presidential Seal on it at Macy's, which must mean he travels with a random assortment of Presidential swag, but to what end? Just in case he runs into a situation like this? Are they really that detailed in their contingency planning?
 
2012-09-19 01:53:03 PM
They had their wedding invitations printed up at Staples, so Romney was there well before Obama came in and tried to steal the spotlight.

Very, very cool. He didn't have to do that, but he did so anyway. This in and of itself isn't a reason to vote for him, but it does show how he's not a stick-up-his-ass tightwad that doesn't know how to act like a decent human being.

I would imagine his detail has some giveaways on hand for generic situations. Perhaps in this case they called someone and said, "We need your X for a visit" and whomever they spoke to said "There's a wedding planned for that time." So they went the extra step and got something more appropriate to the occasion.

Romney would have just moved the whole wedding to China.

To say nothing of the fact that julep is pronounced "jew-lip" which PROVES how much he hates Israel

I'd imagine they do.  Think about it, a campaigner is really just a salesperson.  Sales people travel with swag all the time.  I'm sure he has this stuff mostly if he bumps into a VIP or big-time donor.

He should have gone for Prima Nocta as is his due
 
2012-09-19 02:53:05 PM
Beats the time he crashed my wedding and left behind an upper-decker.

The worst part is that I got them one and had to return it.

That bastard.

Heh. Yes, as Emperor of the world who controls global oil prices, he should have claimed his due.

You're confusing Obama with Biden
 
2012-09-19 03:12:20 PM
A drunken, pantsless Joe Biden can in no way be construed as a wedding gift.

Although his Chicken Dance is AWESOME!

Probably re'gifted as well.

Problem is, they had to share it with a bunch of 47%-ers

a silver tray

Talk about pan-dering for votes.
 
2012-09-19 03:14:02 PM
Mint Julep Cup?

Pffffffft. Im voting for Romney.
 
2012-09-19 03:14:34 PM
If that tray was actually silver it's probably worth close to a grand, depending how thick it is. That's a pretty awesome wedding gift.
 
2012-09-19 03:14:36 PM
They must be of the 47%. And I guess Romney was right. They got a handout from socialist from Big Government. They should feel entitled.
 
2012-09-19 03:14:56 PM
Romney, upon hearing this news and not to be outdone, handed the 1/3rd of his remaining Doritos Big Grab bag to an unsuspecting bus stop patron, free of charge.

Probably the same not-Obama responsible for hunting down bin Laden, amirite?
 
2012-09-19 03:16:50 PM
This is the second article Ive read recently about an Obama event running into a wedding event in some regard. Which leaves me curious as to why we don't hear similar stories about Romney events doing the same thing.

Or is it the just the case of the president schedules somehow handled differently than non-presidents (even though they aret running for the same job).?

Wonder if they sent him a Thank You card!

BFD. The Government has been dropping surprise gifts on Wedding parties for years in Afghanistan.
 
2012-09-19 03:18:29 PM
FTA: Jon has a suggestion for the president. The next wedding he crashes he should leave a gift of lifetime tax-exemption.

Hmm...

looks at picture in TFA

I count two: your wife and kid.
