Rise and Shine

Gwinnett Daily Post: A canceled trip to the Georgia Aquarium could have been a downer, but for a group of campers from Lenora Academy in Snellville, it turned into an opportunity they’ll never forget.

The change in plans meant a water day at the Fountain of Rings in Centennial Olympic Park and lunch at the famous Varsity restaurant in Atlanta. Little did they know the President of the United States of America would be joining them.

“We saw all the activity and (were) wondering what was going on,” said Dawn Washington, assistant director at Lenora Academy.

Just after noon Tuesday, the excitement began. “What’ll you have?” Barack Obama was asked as he walked into The Varsity at the start of the lunch rush. He ordered five chili dogs, four hotdogs and a cheeseburger for his traveling staff and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and Reed’s mother Sylvia Reed.

Washington’s daughter, 11-year-old Armonie, got to shake Obama’s hand after a brief chat and photo opportunity, which included other Lenora Academy campers. “It was really cool. I would never expect to meet the president in real life,” Armonie Washington said. Washington said some of the campers were crying tears of joy.

AP: President Barack Obama is ramping up a fresh phase of his re-election bid with a bus tour next week, focusing more on direct engagement with voters and less on ritzy fundraisers.

Obama’s two-day road trip through Pennsylvania and Ohio — both are key battleground states in the November election — kicks off July 5, a campaign official said….

…. The president will still headline campaign fundraisers through the fall, but the official said Obama’s schedule would start to include more of a mix of campaign rallies and other events focused on speaking directly to a wide swath of voters in the states Obama needs most in order to hold the White House.

… Obama’s itinerary for the bus trip was still being finalized, but the official said the president probably would hold events in northern Ohio and western Pennsylvania.

the enthusiasm gap: atlanta

March 16, 2012

Also from yesterday …. this one completely cracked me up:

That’s how steady my camera would be too. :???:

And this one:

It’s just a pity all the enthusiasm is gone. Oh well.
