President Obama – oh yeah!

Posted in Uncategorized by Andrew Spender on September 16, 2009

When the President comes to town, the traveling circus comes along for the ride. Police choppers circle above, navy boats surround the island, a bazillion cops block the roads and the odd law abiding citizen gets within a hundred feet of him. We were one of the lucky ones to get inside the cordon on Wall Street. After just a few minutes, 12 police bikers led the President’s 31 car convoy along Wall Street to Federal Hall for a speech on Health Reform. We were all being cool until “the beast” limo went past and, yes, Mr President gave us a big ‘ol wave ‘n smile combo! We all cheered like gormless groupies and rode a high for the rest of the day. Ridiculous, yes, but I guess you had to be there.

If you look really, really, really, really closely at this video, you’ll see a whole lot of Presidential limo, but not a whole lot a President. Yep – I was too busy waving to point the camera in the right direction. Ha!
