President Barack Obama Forced to Cancel Public Speech in Rio Square



The International rock star, President Barack Obama has canceled his public speech in the historic plaza known as Cinelandia, in the heart of Rio de Janeiro. So why the cancellation? Could it be that “The One” is not as popular internationally as he thinks he is? Could it be because  near the Rio square anti-US banners could be seen hanging from a road-side fence and some social and union groups had declared Obama a “persona non grata” and called for a protest?


“Blame It on Rio”

President Barack Obama has cancelled a public speech he was scheduled to deliver Sunday in a Rio square during his upcoming visit to Brazil, the US embassy in Brasilia said.

The speech in the historic plaza known as Cinelandia, in the heart of Rio de Janeiro, “is cancelled,” an embassy spokeswoman told AFP.

Obama instead will deliver remarks at Rio’s Municipal Theatre, the official said, without specifying whether it would be open to the public or exclusively for invited guests.

No explanation for the change of venue was given by the embassy. Brazilian authorities have laid out a heavy security presence for Obama’s two-day visit to South America’s largest nation, and police in Rio had closed numerous streets from midnight Thursday in preparation.

One thing that was not canceled was the Obama’s spending Spring Break in Rio as Michelle Obama and their children will be accompanying the President. Most Americans who can only take “staycations” are saying, “must be nice”.

UPDATE I: As Japan  faces a nuclear disaster and Libya is in complete chaos, Obama goes to Rio for Spring Break. The Daily News states that Obama just can’t please Conservatives. Sorry, with the chaos in the word and poor economy at home in the US, Democrats are none to happy either.

President Obama just can’t please conservatives.

The president landed in Brazil Saturday morning for the start of a three-nation Latin American tour, while a right-wing chorus back home assailed him for traveling while emergencies and chaos reign in Libya and Japan.

UPDATE II: Wasn’t Obama supposed to be so well liked Internationally because of not being a Cowboy? Rio had quite the violent protests ahead of “The Obamamessiah’s” visit. It’s not just GWB who has protests prior to going to a foreign country. Obama learns that all US presidents are lumped in the same protest-hate club.

Was that “Bullets over Broadway’? … nope, that would be Rubber bullets over Brazile … I guess we now know why the outside speech was cancelled. Some protesters paraded out a coffin with an “Obama go Home.”

As the Jawa Report opines, commies protesting commies, does it get any more confusing than that?

      Just how many ‘vacations’ have We the People
      authorized for this guy? Once you get elected
      to work, can you just call in ‘on vacation again’
      and avoid the job you were hired to do? How
      much of the People’s Work gets done on the
      golf course? Is he golfing with World Figures
      and Heads of State? Huh?

      Is Michelle Obama going to insist that Iponema Beach be closed for the weekend so that she and her daughters can frolic without all the “riff raff” around (like she did in Spain)?

      We need a vacation fromt all of their vacations!

      If he is worried about his safety, and canceling speeches, he sure should not be taking his daughters into that environment.

      I do not think that “Cariocas” in general dislike Obama. From the news I’ve read what I think is that a few very ignorant leftists with marxist tendencies need to be taken to prison instead of just being dispersed. They are acting like that because president Dilma Roussef was a rebel and terrorist herself.

      People in Rio are pretty ignorant- if they dislike America, they should be supporting Obama- he economic and foreign policies and debt are damaging America, perhaps in a way that it will never be able to recover again.

      wonder what he is giving away now? whoever, follows obama, has a whole lot of cleaning up to do.

      i pray the republicans will be victorious, come 2012, however, we need a true repulican with guts to lead us out of obama and his ilk’s mess.

      This post would have been different if it was GWB.

      could it be that they are prosteting the US president (and not Obama)
