Obama Bus Tour Stop #8: Dewitt, IA

With all the traveling President Obama has done in the past two days, a quick stop for ice cream was next in the plans. He stopped at Dewitt Dairy Treats where he shook hands with many folks. He offered to buy ice cream for his staff and the press (the press declined) but walked away with 2 chocolate ice cream cones, 2 vanilla cones, and one strawberry ice cream cone. When it came time for him to order for himself, he was indecisive.

"What other flavors do you have?" POTUS asked. Thinking about it, he finally said "I'll have a vanilla."

      Obama is proving Lincoln right ... by fooling some of the people ALL of the time. You are just another liberal fool, who even after witnessing 2 1/2 years of the Obama parasites, sucking the life out of our economy and our country, continues to defend and support this lying, manipulative, racist, snake. Obama has ruled this country by pitting one half of America against the other half, and thus maintaining a toxic atmosphere of fear and mistrust. His empty promises are all about getting reelected, while he continues to destroy this great country. It's people like you, blind fanatical Obama loyalists, who are bringing America to its knees. America is MORE important than Obama, and if you want to save this great country of ours, it's time for you Obama suckers to open your eyes, and shift your loyalty from Obama to America !!!

    I'm from DeWitt and some friends and I were coming back from Davenport and couldn't figure out why there were so many cops...until we saw Obama! My friend works at DDT and she got to serve him his cone. It's good that our town and neighboring towns about our size were recognized too. đŸ™‚

        If I were you, I'd focus on bigger problems than Obama's transportation and Mrs. Obama's taste in bathroom luxury...but that's just me.

    I am originally from Iowa and find no joy in his stopping in DeWitt for ice cream. Seems he has more pressing business in Washington finding jobs and actually doing something for this wonderful country instead of campaigning under the pretense of being "one of the folks".

    The damage was already done when OBAMA stepped into the OVAL OFFICE! Everything you sheep are whining about are side effects of the existing disease, which this man has been working to heal! YOU SUCKERS DON'T WANT HIM TO FIX IT! Why weren't you out here pressing the BUSH/CHENEY 'sheep' to open their eyes; shift their cowardice from Bush/Cheney/Rove/Rumsfeld, the GOP Administration and it's 'war profitteering' stockholders in BLACKWATER, HALLIBURTON and a few other 'contractors', for loyalty to AMERICA?!

    Thank goodness for the rational, informed, and civil political discourse displayed in the above comments. Truly, you people are a credit to the American voting public, and I can count on you to weigh in on complex topics with level-headed and elegant locution. I've never felt safer or more confident in the grand future of this nation.
