Store-owner tells Obama business is "terrible since you got here."

In Cleveland, Ohio:
quote:

Potus stopped to meet people waiting for him, where he did the requisite hand-shaking, high-fiving and the rare baby-holding before going on to chat with proprietors at Turczyk's Meats and the adjoining Larry Vilstein's, Christopher Bakery and Edward Badbuster & Son. He then asked the proprietor at Rolston Poultry how business was going. "Terrible since you got here," the man said. Pool could not get close enough to the Rolston Poultry man to get his name or political affiliation. Potus didn't appear amused by the sentiment.

Well we all knew the douchebag index in the US was going through the roof. One more petty jackass who apparently can't manage his own affairs and needs someone to blame.

Guy's a jackass for being honest? You think people should lie just to appease a man who is president. Don't forget, the president works for us, not the other way around.

No. He's a jackass for being unnecessarily discourteous to a stranger--who happens to be the nation's leader.

I think people should act like adults.

I don't think you really understand what that means. The president doesn't "work for us" the way the barista at Starbucks does.

Bro, if you owned a business and it suffered due to to someone else's policies and practices, you'd be chomping at the bit for an opportunity to let that a-hole know how you feel. He could've said far worse things. Obama asked him the question. He answered honestly.

And I think the POTUS should act presidential and not like some pimp with a limp. Respect is earned, not guaranteed just because of a title.

Based on your analogy I don't think you really understand what it means.

It's hard to realize how stupid you are when you're stupid.

Stupid? You mean like confusing honesty with being discourteous? Or thinking that a barista analogy worked?

What is your answer for this mans business not having customers as a result of people not having money to spend? Is it his fault that his customer base is broke because of the economy?

Life's tough. You find a way to make it without blaming others. Isn't that the Republican mantra?

Perhaps he simply agrees with Obama that he didn't build his business and felt obligated to share the information with one of his important partners.

FYI he also stated nothing about apportioning blame, he just responded to a question, should he have lied?

Where's the line between "blaming others" and "pointing out the obvious"?

So I guess you go threw life and whenever somebody fricks you over either through their incompetence or on purpose you don't say anything about it because you don't "blame others".

He wasn't even discourteous to the man.
