Obama Chows Down on Lobsters in Bozeman Montana

That's according to a scathing email by "Kathy Bozeman" that's on fire in wingnut circles on the Internet. Funny thing, it's just not true. More evidence that wingnuts will believe anything that's fed to them so long as it fits their beliefs. This person said the email came from a friend. In fact, that's what most people claimed. "Kathy" sure does have a lot of friends. But on the very same email that other wingnuts got "Sue" -- not "Kathy -- was the signer. Another from Sue.
Even a wannabe politician, Paul Smith, believed the lie. He posted the email he got from "Kathy" here. For these irrational folks, who'd prefer to just hate Obama, rather than oppose him on policy, there is no room for facts. People simply believed an email passed around by a person who can't even be verified.
Furthermore, NRA member who questioned Obama at the town hall says his questions weren't screened. Seems to me if Obama wanted to control the town hall, he'd screen questions.
I think I'm going to make up a fun little email, something ridiculous and send it off to the wingnuts. I'm on their email list. Then when it's afire on the Internet, I'm going to reveal the source. Fools.
Here's part of the email. I guess lobsters are the sign of elitism:
Thursday morning about 600 tickets were passed out.
However, 1500 were printed at a Local printing shop per White House request.
Hmmmm......900 tickets just DISAPPEARED.

This same morning someone called into the radio from the local UPS branch and said that THOUSANDS of Dollars of Lobster were shipped in for Obama. Montana has some of the best beef in the nation!!! And it would have been really wonderful to help out the local economy. Anyone heard of the Recession?? Just think...with all of the traveling the White House is doing. $$$$$ One can only imagine what else we are paying for.

On Friday Bill and I got out to the airport about 10:45am. The groups that wanted to protest Obama's spending and healthcare had gotten a permit to protest and that area was roped off. But that was not to be. A large bus carrying SEIU (Service Employees International Union) members drove up onto the area (illegal)and unloaded right there. It was quite a commotion and there were specifically 2 SEIU men trying to make trouble and start a fight. Police did get involved and arrested the one man but they said they did not have the manpower to remove the SEIU crowd. The SEIU crowd was very organized and young. About 99% were under the age of 30 and they were not locals! They had bullhorns and PROFESSIONALLY made signs.
