Town hall time for Obama and ‘the mob’

By Doug Powers  •  August 14, 2009 02:54 PM

President Obama is in Belgrade, MT for a health care town hall. The event was billed as “first come, first served,” so we’ll see exactly how early those union reps got out of bed this morning (and if they slept in, there’s always the side door).

Will Obama re-visit his US Post Office gaffe in an attempt to redeem himself from that fit of honesty he had the other day? Will the “spontaneous” event be more carefully staged than a Saturn V rocket? Will the uncoached child of a nonpartisan Obama supporter give everybody an update on the mean signs outside? Will the SEIU be there purely for security reasons — like the Hells Angels at Altamont? Will Nancy Pelosi play “Where’s Waldo, Third Reich Edition” and desperately try to spot anybody with a swastika in the crowd? Will Brooks Brothers have a vending booth on site? How many times will Obama promise that the government isn’t gonna kill your grandma? Will the president stop for an Obama burger at Ted’s before leaving town? We’ll find out soon.

If you have the stomach for this sort of thing so close to a weekend, you can watch the town hall live starting at about 3 p.m. eastern here.

Update: Are those real people sitting behind Obama at the podium, or did somebody just Photoshop in these guys?

Hackle raiser so far:

Obama insists he won’t raise middle-class taxes, but takes on “people who say, I don’t care how much money somebody makes, they shouldn’t have to pay higher taxes.” He continues: “We’ve got to get over this notion that you can have something for nothing.”

She’s more comfortable with “America Fiftieth” or so.

How can MSM prove they’re making ‘honest mistakes’ about Trump? Simple
