Video: President shops at Gap same day his party loses bellwether election in swing state

posted at 10:01 pm on March 12, 2014 by Mary Katharine Ham

Guess which got more coverage? The good folks at Grabien have the answer.

Bellwether upset win for Republicans in swing district of a swing state based almost entirely on the president’s failed signature legislation? 53 seconds on the network morning shows, combined

Bad poll numbers for the president and his signature law? 37 seconds

The president picking through bland pullovers: 3 minutes, 36 seconds

If it wasn’t for the media, do you actually believe Obama ever would have been elected President?

Another reason MKH rules: she can spell Bellwether.

You’re right, brainy, of course. Kinda like when he recently misspelled “R-s-p-e-c-t” intentionally.

President Obama committed the unforgivable sin of shopping. At gap no less. Could he not go to walmart like all good Americans should? The nerve. Doesn’t he know that Vladimir Putin would not be caught dead shopping at a store. He we must revoke his man card, for not sending the servants, I mean Michelle to get some mom jeans.

coolrepublica on March 12, 2014 at 10:25 PM

The price of Gap t-shirts just went up 100%.

Whee! The clerks don’t know/can’t see it, but for reasons outside this visit (healthcare, Duh-Blasio taxes) they’re about to experience serious economic pain beyond the cost of a t-shirt.

The Gap sucks. Why anyone shops there is a mystery. Cheap Chinese garbage. No style.

And anyone dumb enough to believe Obama does his own shopping should be condemned to … work at The Gap.

Losers. You deserve far less than “minimum wage.”

Well, in my defense, frank has been far too scared to attack me of late. and Pickles is on the Jackson-Lee thread trying to come up with an intelligent thought of her own.

That must be why he was so surprised to see that ‘you can sign the machine’ at checkout.

He hasn’t spent his own money, hasn’t shopped at a retail outlet in so long, he wasn’t even aware of the point of sale technology being employed at checkout counters at major retailers.

Gee… you don’t mean to suggest that Obama lives a rarefied existence and uses servants to do all those mundane chores for him… like… *gasp*…the 1% …do you?

Honey, they’re in such a panic at the White House they don’t know ==== from shinola at the present time. I’d go to the Gap too if I had Mary Landrieu and Mark Pryor screaming in my ear.
