A clever use of Obama’s pal Al Sharpton’s moronic chant wherever he buses in protesters to agitate.
Outside the Marriott, where there was a heavy police presence, about 75 protesters were on hand chanting ‘‘hey, hey, ho, ho, Barack Obama’s got to go.’’ In support of the demonstrators, 64-year-old Palin Smith of Woodbury brought the crowd 100 sandwiches from Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain at the center of a national debate over gay marriage. The company’s president recently touched off the skirmish when he told the Baptist Press that Chick-fil-A was ‘‘guilty as charged’’ for backing ‘‘the biblical definition of a family.’’
Jim Berger, a 65-year-old retired small business owner, traveled from Valhalla, N.Y., for the rally. He voiced concern about the level of government spending during Obama’s first term.
‘‘We’ve spent trillions of dollars,’’ he said. ‘‘We have no jobs to show for it. The economy hasn’t improved.’’
On the upside the Globe has finally mentioned the Chick-fil-A story now.
Meanwhile, the supremely arrogant Obama had local beaches shut down so he could land close to the mansion of fatcat supporter Harvey Weinstein.
The president’s presence was also felt in Fairfield County, where state officials closed Sherwood Island State Park in Westport on Monday ‘‘due to a special event.’’
State Republicans pounced on the decision to close the state park in the middle of summer.
‘‘It is the arrogance of power and crass partisanship to shut down Sherwood Isle at the height of the summer vacation season and dislodge all these families,’’ House Minority Leader Lawrence Cafero Jr., R-Norwalk, said in a statement. ‘‘It is outrageous that the Democrats turn Sherwood Isle into a personal heliport for the president so that he can be ferried back and forth to hobnob with millionaires and billionaires for the day.’’
Connecticut Republican Party Chairman Jerry Labriola, Jr. said the closure came on a day when temperatures climbed in the 90s.
‘‘And while 50 guests pay $35,800 per person to hobnob with President Obama and movie celebrities and Governor Malloy at Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s six-acre beachfront estate in Westport, area families and their children will not be able to go to the beach today because the President’s helicopter is parked there,’’ Labriola said in a statement.
