The Shrub Comes to Louisville.... Protests Ensue
The "audience" for his canned comments has been hand picked and screened to ensure that only those who agree with the president will be present. Although every one of the audience members is a backer of the president, the local media has been reporting that they were all admitted and seated as early as 11:45 local time. Strangely enough, this in an hour before the President is even scheduled to land in Louisville. His remarks are set to begin by 1:20 local time.
I ask you gentle reader, how much support can this man actually have, when he can't even sit in a room full of average American citizens? Why is it that even people who are his strongest supporters, those who don't ever question his judgment, still are required to be screened and seated an hour before his plane even lands in the State? And what kind of people would put up with that kind of America?
There are more protesters outside than people inside to hear the president's speach. Welcome to Bushworld....
