Obama's Beer Town Summit

Tomorrow Barack Obama will take a break from his strenuous vacation schedule to fly into Milwaukee for a fundraiser with Mayor Tom Barrett. Apparently the Democratic gubernatorial hopeful hasn't noticed the change in fortunes that now accompany the future former president's endorsement. The ‘Beer Town' summit will cost party loyalists $250 per mug and for those with deep pockets (and no sense of shame) an additional $10,000 for a picture with the photo-op czar himself.

The location for the fundraiser has not been made public, but it is sure to draw Milwaukee's party elite. It is not known if local favorites Peggy (boycott Arizona, wherever it is) West, Ieshuh (not the white man's b***h) Griffin or Eugene (Journo list wannabe) Kane will be in attendance.


Mr. Obama will also be in town to promote ‘The Summer of Recovery' at a yet to be determined event in the Milwaukee area. If BHO's handlers are still looking for a good venue to promote the regime's economic success story I would like to make a few suggestions as a bi-partisan good will gesture.


How about a chat with the adoring crowds of job seekers at the new Milwaukee Job Corps (pronounced CORE not CORPSE) Center. The center has been packing them in during ‘The Summer of Recovery' as job loses in the metro area topped 5,000 in June alone.


Maybe a talk with the union workers at Milwaukee icon Harley Davidson would prove interesting. With the legendary motorcycle company considering a move to shift manufacturing out of state unless the union will agree to desperately needed concessions, I'm sure that it would be a lively event.


Hey, how about a stop at Kopp's Frozen Custard in nearby Glendale for a discussion on tax cuts with store manager Scott Borkin. This should be a no-brainer for Mr. Obama, don't ask for ice cream and refrain from calling Scott a "smart ass" and the trip would be deemed a success.


The bingo hall at St. Rafael the Archangel in Milwaukee would have been a good choice, but the folks there may not in the best of moods. The Journal Sentinel reports.


Witnesses said as many as three robbers wearing Halloween masks stormed into the hall shortly after 9 p.m. and at least one was armed with what appeared to be a handgun. One woman who had not played bingo at the church in years said one of the robbers put a handgun to her daughter's face before grabbing her purse and fleeing.

Somehow I don't think hearing about three new jobs being created in Milwaukee Friday night would get a very positive response. Come to think of it does anyone know where Barry, Nancy and Harry were Friday night at 9 p.m. CDT?


Perhaps Mayor Barrett can come up with a suitable place for a ‘Summer of Recovery' photo op. One final suggestion, it would be a good idea to avoid the overwhelmed food pantries or areas where the city's growing number of homeless tend to congregate.
