Barack Obama … LOST IN SMALLNESS, THE SLURPEE EDITION.
Why does Barack Obama hate 7-11 and Slurpees?
Wasn’t Barack Obama supposed to be a “Uniter”, not a divider? Wasn’t Obama the one who said there was not a liberal American or a conservative America, there were no “red”states, there were no “blue” states, there was just the United States? All we have got from this president for the past 20 months is insults, the playing of the race card and and smallness. Never has there been a President in history who has so acted in such a small manner as Barack Obama.
How presidential of Barack Hussein Obama to state that “Slurpee’s are the beverage of choice of obstructionist Republicans.” WOW, could you be any more petty or small Mr. President? This President is nothing more than a joke who is looking for laughs.Is name calling really Presidential and supposed to win votes? You act Mr. President might work at liberal, elite cocktail parties, it hardly is something that Presidents are made of.
To hear President Obama tell it, Slurpees are the beverage of choice of obstructionist Republicans.
In each of 20 political speeches over the last two months, Mr. Obama has included a riff in which he portrays GOP leaders as sipping Slurpees while hard-working Democrats struggle to pull the economy out of a ditch.
“We’re down there. It’s hot. We were sweating. Bugs everywhere. We’re down there pushing, pushing, pushing on the car. Every once in a while we’d look up and see the Republicans standing there. They’re just standing there fanning themselves — sipping on a Slurpee.”
Obama thinks Republicans are elitists? Really? From the Democrat party who thinks that they know better than the American people and passed Obamacare and the failed s$787 billion stimulus against the will of the people. Ain’t that rich coming from King Louie and Marie Antoinette, oops Michelle Obama who knows how to rough it up and travel coach, like on her vacation to Spain.
Mr. Obama clearly thinks Republicans are elitist, but the line wouldn’t be as funny if he said they were sipping Chardonnay or a Mint Julep.
The first time Mr. Obama used the line he equivocated about the type of beverage. He said the Republicans were “drinking on a Slurpee or something.” By the fourth speech, he had settled on Slurpee, and has stuck with it in every political speech since.
The Astute Blogger has an interesting perspective on the “slurpee” reference. Yikes, who knew it was dirty urban slang?
Let’s make one thing perfectly clear Mr. president, the American people would rather go to 7-11 and get a Slurpee, than they would drink the Obama Kool-Aid.
