NASCAR's final race of the season!
http://tv.breitbart.com/nascar-crowd...ichalle-obama/The comments are worth reading.............A frosty reception for First Lady Michelle Obama in Florida today as she makes the traditional "Gentlemen, start your engines!" call at the final NASCAR race of the season.
What did she do to the NASCAR crowd? Look at them?
(That would be enough to get me booing. She always looks mad.)
Funny how no one mentioned Sarah Palin getting booed in Philly.
I guess that we can expect Obama to ration gas for NASCAR now.
BTW, it seems that when Palin was booed in Philadelphia, the NY Times supported the booers.
http://slapshot.blogs.nytimes.com/20...ey-mom-moment/I wonder if the Times will ask if it was appropriate for Mrs. Obama to appear at a sports event, too?

Palin Met With Boos at Flyers’ Opener
By LYNN ZINSER
When Sarah Palin dropped the ceremonial first puck at the Flyers’ opener on Saturday night at the Wachovia Center, she was greeted by resounding (almost deafening) boos. Ed Snider, owner of the Flyers, had her introduced to the crowd more as a hockey mom than as the Republican candidate for vice president. She was flanked by Scott Gomez, the Rangers center, and Mike Richards, the Flyers center.
While Philadelphia fans are known for not being shy about voicing disapproval, the question has been raised — including by me in an earlier version of this post — whether the appearance was appropriate at a sports event like this.

Now they use more of it, creating more pollution and consumption, and depleting the crop of corn that people used to eat. Those tankers full of ethanol are transported by Diesel burning trucks to their various outlets. Since the fuel mileage is 30% less efficient, you have to make more stops at the pumps. More consumption yet.
Liberal good intentions are killing reason and logic in this country.
What did she expect a standing ovation and an invitation to take a lap in the pace car? For people like Ms. Obama...the word NASCAR is a synonym of "white trash". Her first clue that it wouldn't be a good idea to do this should have been when the NASCAR Drivers refused to come to the WH.
Personally, I'd like it if First Ladies and others who are not in overtly political positions were treated with a certain deference and respect, but things are so hyperpartisan today that it's becoming harder to disassociate Mrs. Obama from her husband's policies, and her comments about the meanness of America and her lack of pride in us have made her extremely unpopular among those of us who have always felt pride in our nation.
