President Pathetic...from the LA Times, no less:
Obama ends bus tour with pitch to subdued crowd
Closing out his bus tour on a low-key note, President Obama made a pitch for his jobs package at a firehouse, where a subdued crowd needed a bit of prompting to applaud his proposal to boost the economy.
The president got a polite reception from the 100 or so people crowded into the station garage. Early in his speech he mentioned his American Jobs Act.
One or two people clapped.
"You can go ahead and clap," the president said. "Go ahead, nothing wrong with it."
100 people turn out to see the President of the United States. He touts his plan that he claims is the linchpin for saving America, and get zero response. Desperately, be begs - begs - for support.
The LA Times does not mention whether he was successful in cajoling any additional support from the "crowd" - a term that should be used lightly, as that is a pretty thin turnout for a PTA meeting, no less with a man who fancies himself the leader of the free world.
Seems unlikely. Actually, looks like Barack Obama has just about as much support for his "American Jobs Act" as fans did for Spinal Tap's "new direction"...
