Obama Hilariously Tells a Farmer to Call The USDA
Ha ha, U.S. President of Doom Barack Obama obviously has no idea how awful his government is. He seems to think that if an American person has a question about something, that person can just call up the government to get that question answered! HA! OUTRAGEOUS. Come on, Barack Obama, have some sense.
At Wednesday’s town hall in Atkinson, Ill., a local farmer who said he grows corn and soybeans expressed his concerns to President Barack Obama about “more rules and regulations” — including those concerning dust, noise and water runoff — that he heard would negatively affect his business.
The president, on day three of his Midwest bus tour, replied: “If you hear something is happening, but it hasn’t happened, don’t always believe what you hear.”
When the room broke into soft laughter, the president added, “No — and I’m serious about that.”
Saying that “folks in Washington” like to get “all ginned up” about things that aren’t necessarily happening (“Look what’s comin’ down the pipe!”), Obama’s advice was simple: “Contact USDA.”
“Talk to them directly. Find out what it is that you’re concerned about,” Obama told the man. “My suspicion is, a lot of times, they’re going to be able to answer your questions and it will turn out that some of your fears are unfounded.”
Barack Obama is probably just confused, because he is so fortunate as to have a nice lady living in his house who is capable of answering all sorts of vegetable-related questions. [Politico]
