No time for you
Florida Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen received a phone call from Obama yesterday to wish her congratulations on her re-election and to convey other political-type niceties — like the importance of working together.
Problem was, she didn’t believe it was him. She thought it was one of those wacky radio station stunts wherein a DJ gets you to believe he is someone famous. You know, like when Sarah Palin was spoofed into thinking she was talking to French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Determined not to be “Palin-ized,” Ros-Lehtinen hung up on him. Strike two
So Obama’s head honcho Rahm Emanuel got involved and called her back. She promptly hung up on him too.
”I thought it was one of the radio stations in South Florida playing an incredible, elaborate, terrific prank on me,” Ros-Lehtinen told the Miami Herald. “They got Fidel Castro to go along. They’ve gotten Hugo Chavez and others to fall for their tricks. I said, ‘Oh, no, I won’t be punked’.”
She said he later told her lightheartedly that he would always remember her for the incident.
“Trust me, Ileana,” she recounted him saying. “You will always be remembered by me, because I have made many of these calls and never once has anyone ever hung up on me. And never once has anyone hung up on me twice.”
How many people hUng up the phone when Obama's bot called you before the election?
Let me guess...All liberals and desperatedly change people ANSWERED HIS CALL because they THOUGHT that Obama WANTED TO talk to them.
