Picture of the week: Brining it to the 'burbs

President Obama brought his jobs message to a Las Vegas suburb on Monday.   It was there he also announced a housing initiative to help homeowners with federally guaranteed mortgages refinance their homes.

    obama will say, or do anything to get reelected.
    obama is a shameless, self-serving con man ...
    the main stream media are his shills ...
    and, the American people are his marks !!!

    The guy is using this excuse to campaign, and his entire purpose is campaigning on the public's tax dollars. This is just pathetic, when he has plenty of campaign money.

        Jean2009, please don't ask people like Rick or Jay or truin reasons for their bumper sticker criticism of the President. Their little heads will explode if they provide rational and facts. Those types of credulous factoids are tantamount to an act of treason in the GOP/Tea Clown party.

        Here's my proof; These poorly equipped posters will never give you a credible alternative to President Obama, even if they could articulate it in terms other than...you guessed it....a bumper sticker slogan. A well spoken president is really hard for these people to support.

    Just look at that picture. It says it all. The president putting himself on a literal pedestal, distant and aloof.

      Jay, was it the President or was it the Secret Service?

        In close quarters like this photograph with all those houses side-by-side, with tile roofs. I would bet on barricades being the idea of the Secret Service. I also bet everyone was funneled through one opening and through metal detectors. As usual clueless Jay.
