Pretend President Shuts Down Disney Before Shutting Down NYC for Fundraisers

Posted by on Jan 19, 2012 at 5:46 pm

Before jetting off on our dime to shut down New York City  for his four star-studded   fundraisers tonight, our make-believe president engaged in some fantasy-land photo-ops at Disneyworld today, where he also graciously brought the place to a halt.

Disney says the president will be at the Magic Kingdom, which means guests can plan for heavy security. Main Street USA will be closed for the duration of the president’s time there. Guests will be re-routed to other parts of the park. Disney is also cancelling extra magic hours for the Magic Kingdom, and pushing back the “Celebrate a Dream Come True” parade.

Celebrate a dream come true, except if this miserable failure is around. Pretty good metaphor for his entire presidency.

He’s ostensibly in Orlando to promote tourism, and leaves families stuck behind security lines. What a a sport.

“I see that the President today is in Florida speaking, and where is he?” Romney said. “He’s at Disney World. He’s giving a speech today. Guess where he’s going to be giving the speech? Fantasyland. He’s giving a speech in Fantasyland. Think about that. He’s going to be in Fantasyland, and it’s obviously appropriate because he’s been sort of living in a Fantasyland these last few years, and he’ll be talking about what a great job he’s been doing on the economy. Has he not been out here? Has he not seen 9.9 percent unemployment in South Carolina.”

Meanwhile, Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., also released a statement regarding Obama’s visit.”While President Obama is making it easier for the Chinese and other foreigners to come to Disney, his rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline has made it more difficult and costly for Americans to travel to Disney World,” Mica said in a statement.

Newt Gingrich pounced.

Meanwhile, this oaf who travels the world and parties endless on your dime, laments his portrayal as an elitist, aloof snob, and blames the people responsible for him being president. He’s the victim, you see, and even ridiculing this abysmal failure is obviously a sign of latent, dark racism on someone’s part.

    why isn’t anybody pissed off at disney for this? what was in it for them that led them to believe that this was worth treating their customers this way ? where are the interviews with the folks who dropped a thousand bucks on tickets for the family and traveled hundreds of miles to get to the theme park only to find that the place was closed-up so that our clueless president could pose in front of a fake castle and urge others to boost the economy by visiting places like disney world ?! good lord, we really are living in fantasyland, aren’t we?
