President Snow Cone does it again..

..another PR photo-op triumph!

I feel the scales falling from my eyes as I write. I feel the tears welling up in these self-same orbs and gladness and hope and joy fill my heart and exhilaration seizes my aged frame. The Light-Bringer hath descended from D.C. and proclaimed that the seas will recede and that they shall become pure again. Again at the Gulf, he has shown us what he -- as dear leader -- is capable of with the mere prosaic props of everyday life..or so CNN would have you believe..

Theodore, Alabama (CNN) - President Barack Obama used a lemon-lime snow cone to show that parts of the Gulf Coast remain unaffected by the oil spill –and that he's fully engaged in the ongoing crisis on a day and a half visit to the region.

At his first stop in Gulfport, Mississippi, the president was briefed by Admiral Thad Allen and other officials on the latest effort to cap and contain the oil. And the president said that many locations are still open for tourism and unaffected by the spill.

"We just want to make sure that people who have travel plans down to the Gulf area remain mindful of that, because if people want to know what can they do to help folks down here, one of the best ways to help is to come down here and enjoy the outstanding hospitality," the president said.

The president said he was updated on the need for better coordination of Skimmers and other assets involved in the effort, so that more oil is kept off area beaches.

Obama said they also discussed concerns about problems residents are facing as they file claims to recover money from BP.

But am I missing something? How did The First Turd Bag demonstrate all of this with a mere snow cone and a visit to the Gulf? Unless CNN truly thinks they can trowel all kind of ethereal bullsh!t into their articles and we're going to lap it up like a bunch of folks coming in from a desert hike?

I mean, seriously, who writes this crap? I gotta believe it's straight from the Chief Metro-Sexual POSOTUS' bare-chested beer-ponging staff to the fawning sycophantic corps(e) of CNN pool reporters to some zitty intern sitting on a word processor out in the early Summer heat and humidity of of Alabama.

This piece continues:

Some residents around Theodore, Alabama, where Obama will tour a staging area in which booms are cleaned and de-contaminated, are glad to be getting the administration's attention.

But one man says it's nothing more than a "photo op." Jim Hall, a retired executive and longtime local resident who has lived and fished on the Gulf since the 1980's, wants the administration to talk less and do more.

..don't we all, Jim, don't we all?

I'm so sick of this turd bag. We all know he's a liar and a commie and worse than the plague. Anyone who would want to meet with him out there must be getting dizzy from the oil fumes!
Happy Flag day, War Planner!
