How to get Obama's attention

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="President Obama received a flattering compliment Thursday in Buffalo, New York."]
Buffalo, New York (CNN) –What's one way to get the president's attention? Flattery.

"You're a hottie with a smokin' little body," Luann Haley told President Obama as he walked around Duff's Famous Wings near Buffalo.

According to pool reports, Obama responded by giving a big hug to Haley, a 45-year-old Department of Education contractor. But the president warned her that first lady Michelle Obama would be watching.

"That's alright," Haley told Obama and then said "Hi, Michelle. Eat your heart out."

The president made a surprise visit to the local restaurant on his way to an event in Buffalo, New York.

    He got my attention with:

    We are not red states or blue states, we are the United States.

    The old southern politicians just can't stand a half white half black man being our President, and they are willing to destroy the country in order to destroy him.

    Get rid of the old southern mentality forever. OLD WHITE SOUTHERN SUCKS.

    Well, that is obvious given that he is narcissistic. Obama is all about himself, and he is not about the people.

    FLOTUS isn't worried, she flatters Mr. President everyday just being in his presents. Personally I'd like to be FLOTUS, but no chance, she's got it all covered.

    This is funny, but I bet she's going to be in trouble professionally after this. That's not the most appropriate behavior for someone who does contract work for the government.

    I was so disappointed in CNN today as they cut off President Obama's Buffalo town hall meeting. I always look forward to listening to these meetings. In fact, I have an 81 yr old dear friend and I always call her in advance to notify her that President Obama will be speaking.

    260,000 – hooray – Mrs. G.

    Oh yeah. He's a cutie for sure. If Michelle gets tired of him, there's a lot of women here in Houston that think he's a doll. Smart, fit, friendly, wellspoken, published, educated, tall, handsome, super cute, personable, spiritual, world citizen. I'm getting excited just thinking about him! Go Mr. President!!

    Obama is in danger of becoming worse than B. Clinton when it comes to women. And now it is documented by this CNN report. Mr. President please stay away from the women who disrespect your wife and focus on the job you are getting paid to do. The nation is bankrupt and in crisis. Wasting time with your "fans" is offensive to the public at large. CNN, please focus on more important issues...

    I love to get Obama's attention but not the way that lady did, and tell him to fire Larry Summers. That guy sides with the evil bankers. He was the Secretary of treasury for 1 year in 1999 and got rid of the Glass–Steagall act. Economics is a very hard subject, especially since is not based on facts on only theories. So Obama and Clinton and obviously Bush had to relied on these corrupt people. Anyways, Obama get rid of that corrupt bastard!

    How about we vote out all the Democrats in November? That'll get Obama's attention that we reject his Socialist agenda.

    What do looks have to do with anything? I don't see anyone calling Mitch McConnell a hottie.

    Typical sexist female liberal.

    Didn't know "hottie" was a requirment of a President. OH! I guess it's just a requirement for LIBERAL presidents I guess since I've never heard the looks of any REPUBLICAN president complimented this much!
    Except for Nixon, of course.

    I believe in magic. President Obama is sooooooooo hot! He makes me think about my past and before I was ever married. President Obama is so hot – if he got divorced tomorrow I would look his way. President Obama is so hot – he can show up and make it rain.

    It's heartening to know that juvenile banality is still alive and well in the minds of the elite. Don't these people ever mentally leave junior high school, or do they remain retrograde throwbacks for the rest of their intellectually stunted lives?

    We know what Faux News' response will be: Hargle. Chargle. Manargle. Clargle.

    Then there's Rush Limbaugh: Grabba. Habba. Dabba. Shlabbah.

    Oh, and don't forget Bill O'Reilly: YARGH! CHARGH! CLARGH! MANARCH! WE'LL DO IT LIVE!!! YARGH!

    And there is Glenn Beck. (sniff)...Oh...(sniff)...oh...(whimper)...oh...(sob)...oh...(shriek)...oh...(wail)....oh...WAH...WAH....WAH!!!!

    And Sarah Palin: Oh, doncha know? Shoot! Drill! Duh! Dingbat. Dingbat. Dingbat. Wolf! Dingbat!

    Bring 'em on. Bring 'em all on. Yes!
