Overcompensation methinks!

Remember a couple of months ago when Obama and his minions 'forgot' to pay  for their BBQ?  Well they took a lot of heat for that.  Well yesterday, in an effort to be a regular guy, Obama unrolled a wad of cash that would choke a Rosie O'Donnell!
Wherever Barack Obama goes, he is accompanied by a huge entourage of aides, Secret Service and campaign staff.

But when the President goes shopping, he still has to handle his own cash, as he showed on Saturday when he bought sausages from a Wisconsin store following a campaign stop in key swing state.

Mr Obama pulled out a wad of bills that looked almost large enough to make a dent in the national debt as he browsed for pork treats alongside Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett.
I don't begrudge anyone their income, holdings or possessions, and I understand that most of them are quite wealthy long before they get there, SO they can pay for whatever they want.  BUT, since WHEN does ANY President do his own shopping or paying?  He's not done it for the last 3+ years.  He didn't even think about doing it earlier this year.  Hell GWB took a bunch of crap over NOT having been in a grocery store for 20 years as I recall!
Personally I rarely use cash.  I usually throw out the debit card (that's about to change I think) and I'd expect Romney, Obama, Bush, et al to use debit or credit cards.
This was [yet another] photo op, meet & greet that the (D)'s blew!   When the peasants are starving, Marie Antoinette or Obama suggesting they eat cake or apply for and use food stamps to eat at home, respectively, doesn't play!

Doesn't play? Me thinks you give your fellow voters too much credit when you assume phony photo ops like that will turn people off. But, we'll see.

You don't think that do nothing idiot with a big ass bank roll won't piss off broke people with no job? You don't have to be smart to be broke and pissed off, and we've all had brothers-in-law to prove it!
