Tag Archives: Roanoke rally for Obama

Obama made this (failed) business happen!

Last Friday evening, Obama spoke at a campaign rally in Roanoke, Virginia — the one where 20 people in the audience fainted. This is what the POS told America’s business owners:
If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”
Since according to the POS, “if you’ve got a business…somebody else made that happen,” then by the same token, if you’ve got a failed business, SOMEBODY ELSE MADE THAT HAPPEN.
Like this mattress and flooring small business beneath an Obama 2012 campaign office in Portland, Maine.

Ann Harris, a 70-year-old restaurant owner in Akron, Ohio, and a big fan of Obama’s, dropped dead from a heart attack shortly after the POS stopped in unannounced for breakfast.
Alex Okrent, a 29-year-old campaign worker at the POS’s downtown Chicago campaign headquarters, also dropped dead.

Folks, they’re dropping like flies!

Obama has a deadly appeal

Remember 70-year-old Ann Harris, that restaurant owner in Akron, Ohio, and a big fan of Obama’s, who dropped dead from a heart attack shortly after the POS stopped in unannounced for breakfast?
Now another Obama fan has dropped dead — a 29-year-old campaign worker at the POS’s downtown Chicago campaign headquarters.

Alex Okrent

Lynn Sweet reports for the Chicago Sun-Times, July 13, 2012, that Alex Okrent worked in Obama for America’s paid media department, which handles advertising for Obama’s re-election bid. Okrent was also a staffer for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and worked on his 2004 race for an Illinois Senate seat.
Yesterday, Okrent collapsed while working at the POS’s Chicago campaign headquarters. After he collapsed, Chicago paramedics were called at 10:36 a.m. to the Obama headquarters in the Prudential Building where he was given emergency treatment. He was then taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Interestingly, the Chicago Sun-Times article is now closed to comments. An Editor’s Note says the following:
“Due to the tone and content of many of the comments associated with this story, commenting has been turned off. The Sun-Times encourages readers to make their voices heard, but commenting must maintain a respectful and constructive tone.”
Meanwhile, Obama also worked his deadly appeal on supporters during a rally in downtown Roanoke, Virginia.
Daniel Halper reports for The Weekly Standard, July 13, 2012, that “more than 20 people fainted during the president’s speech” Friday evening in Roanoke.
According to the press pool report:
“TV viewers may have heard POTUS pointed out a couple of faintings during the rally in downtown Roanoke. In fact, fire officials say more than 20 people fell out during the course of the speech. There were waves of exclamation as one person after another swooned.
Paramedics treated 21 people on the scene and took one to the hospital, according to the Roanoke fire department.
It was warm out and the crowd of 3,000-plus was packed tightly into the 4-block area, the deputy fire marshal said by way of explanation. Volunteers passed around cups of water but some people didn’t take them, he said.”
So I went looking for what the temperature was in Roanoke, Virginia, on the evening of July 13, 2012.
This is what Kevin Myatt’s Weather Journal on roanoke.com (the online Roanoke Times) says:

UPDATE 9:20 AM, 7/13: Unseasonably cool, damp mid-July period peaks today in Southwest Virginia

UPDATE 9:20 Am, 7/13: Most of the rain has stayed along and west of the Interstate 77 corridor through the night and morning, but a few showers to the east will move north through the Roanoke and New River valleys this morning. (Latest radar linked here.) Drizzly, damp weather has also developed along parts of the Blue Ridge as easterly winds bank some moisture against the higher terrain. That “wedge” effect is likely to keep cloudiness overhead and temperatures below normal today in much of our region, with highs no higher than 80 most places.

So the weather in Roanoke on the evening of July 13 was “unseasonably cool, damp”, and yet 20 people fainted during that POS’s speech!
