I Am Going To See President Obama

Reuters

WNU Editor: The GF bought tickets for us to see President Obama on June 6 .... Tickets to see Barack Obama speak in Montreal on sale today (CBC). He is speaking at a huge venue, but the tickets were sold out within 15 minutes. But I give credit to the GF .... they are good tickets .... about 10 rows from the stage. The last time that I saw a U.S. President speak was Bill Clinton about 15 years ago. He was a disappointment .... all that he talked about was himself. I expect the same from President Obama.

Update: And no .... if it was up to me .... I would not have paid money for these expensive tickets. But the GF is the GF .... I have to obey. :(

Update #2: That week is also the week for the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Groan .... Montreal is going to be a zoo that week.

Good god. I hope your not under any illusion that should you ever pay to see Trump speak, that he'll not end up talking about himself. For hours on end.

That's all he ever does!

Mark up the tickets by a factor of 10 to 30 and sell them to Jay.

Trump talks like Richard Daley.

It will be good for 5 minutes. It will be straightforward and it will send the morons of the press stir crazy.

Journalist deserve to be driven crazy. So many of them are evil people.

Aizino,

I think many journalists have already been driven crazy. In fact, they are WAY past crazy at this point.

Some 3500 folks shelled out $975 for the speech in Italy this month. Reports are that Obama cleared some $3 million for that talk.

Tickets look to be more reasonable for Montreal. Around $300 per.

/Apparently Brando island is a good spot for planning high-payout speechifying

RussInSoCal. The GF paid $365 per ticket. $700+ to see President Obama .... I feel like choking her, but she knows I am a political junkie and in her mind she thinks she is doing a good thing for me. Sighhhh .... I would be more happy having a pizza date with her at the local Italian restaurant.

Your GF is trying to appeal to you as a whole person.

Either that or she is trying to see how good of a constitution you have.
