4:43PM EST October 5. 2012 - Not all of the president's food runs are happy occasions.

A poultry vendor at a Cleveland market didn't react well today when President Obama asked him how business was going.

"Terrible since you got here," the man replied.

The pool report said journalists "could not get close enough to the Rolston Poultry man to get his name or political affiliation."

It added that Obama "didn't appear amused by the sentiment."

The exchange came during an unscheduled stop at the Cleveland West Side Market, a century-old collection of mom & pop-style vendors.

On a more pleasant note, Obama enjoyed one of the shop names: "Michelle's Bakery."

"It is no coincidence that I'm stopping at Michelle's Bakery," said the husband of Michelle Obama. "I just want to point that out. And she spells it the right way, with two Ls. That's the correct way. How are you. Good to see you. So Michelle, when did you get started with this?"

Obama ordered one piece pumpkin cheesecake ($2.95), one Danish butternut loaf ($6.95) and one loaf of zucchini bread ($6.95).

"All these things look delicious," Obama said.

The president insisted on taking a photograph with the owners in front of the sign that read "Michelle's Bakery."

Obama also purchased some meat products, including 20 smokies, a half-pound of barbecue jerky, and a half-pound of mild jerky.

He also found time for a little politicking, telling one backer that "Ohio is the key" to re-election.

I like that owner. "You're here, business sucks. If you leave, I can get back to my life and boosting the economy." A perfect microcosm of the country. AngelWhistling

The vendors should have charged him the "special" rate. You know, to make up for the lost revenue his stop (and, dare I say, presidency) caused. Oh, and only accept cash so that the purchase isn't putting the country into more debt.

None of that food sounds healthy. And I just love how the president is referred to as the husband of Michelle Obama.

At this point Obama has become more pitiful than Bush ever did.

I never thought Bush was pitiful. You may not have liked him, or you may have disagreed with him, but he wasn't a pussy who would act like a spoiled brat if you didn't like him. Bush never took it personal, or so I thought.

Bush is a guy I'd want to hang with, Obama is the guy I'd fire for sucking at bussing a table.

I never realized that was the definition or meaning of pitiful. Shrug
Shows what I know.

Just for the record, I never said I did or didn't like Bush, nor that I disagree with or agree with him neither did I say he was a pussy or acted like a spoiled brat because I didn't like him. I also didn't say he took things personal.

By pitiful I meant; arousing pity. Bush was widely viewed with pity by his supporters and contempt by his opponents and a mixture of both by everyone else. Obama may still be beloved for whatever reason, but I think he's becoming as pitied by his supporters as he is loved by the more rabid variety of liberal.

I personally felt bad for all of the bad press Bush received (< The definition of pity) and felt it was a fairly common sentiment among his supporters as well to feel empathic towards Bush's excessive amount of mockery and contempt. (< Again, the definition of pity)

Check out the videos this black man posts on youtube bashing Obama and liberals. It's pretty surprising to see these, but I do enjoy his rants. I'll also add one of them to this post below so you have an idea what his videos are like.

There are many very intelligent black conservatives out there. I had the great pleasure of listening to a conservative southern black and a liberal conservative black have a debate (shouting match for anyone else) on the radio yesterday.

The problem the black community seems to have is an abundance of racism within their own communities. Most black conservatives I've heard almost all say that their own family disagrees with their choice of social position on the simple fact of their skin colour. They're told by their parents and relatives that since they're black, they should think and vote black. Many of them consider their own families to be the most racist people they know on the virtue that their families expect them to agree socially and politically on the basis of their skin color. It's pitiful, and it hardly gets more racist than that.
