TKC AFTERGLOW AFTERMATH QUESTION: DID PREZ OBAMA VISIT KANSAS CITY BECAUSE HE'S DESPERATE???
Kansas City is basking in the afterglow of a Presidential jaunt but mainstream media hasn't has much to say about the purpose of the visit.
SERIOUSLY, DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHY PREZ OBAMA VISITED KANSAS CITY AND WHAT DID HE ACCOMPLISH???
The answer might have a lot to do with the fundamental "fat girl" nature of this town . . . People only come here when they're desperate. More accurately:
Most people only visit Kansas City when they're ON THEIR WAY UP or ON THEIR WAY DOWN AND OUT. NOW, YOU DECIDE WHICH APPLIES TO THE PREZ!!!
What disappoints this blog is that this town got caught up in the celebrity angle of the visit from the Prez which proves his strategy correct but reflects on our po'dunk cowtown culture. Seems like Prez Obama needed to get out into the MIDDLE-OF-NOWHERE AMID FLYOVER COUNTRY TO GIVE A CAMPAIGN STYLE SPEECH WITH NO QUESTIONS ASKED.
Still, that strategy speaks to a politically desperate stance and a real need to "rally the base" which proved easy in a town where most people were more concerned about coleslaw than policy issues.
For tonight, here's some of the best news links in the aftermath of the Presidential visit that kinda prove our point . . .
