    Obama Uses Police Memorial for Porta Potties

    PORTLAND, OR – Police officers in Portland, Oregon, are still waiting for an apology from Barack Obama after campaign staffers of his recent rally in Portland, Oregon, setup porta potties directly on top of the Portland Police Memorial, which honors the agency’s 25 fallen police officers.



    Imagine if the Police set-up porat potties ontop of some old slave graveyard? This is pretty much a harbinger of how the police will be treated in an Obama Presidency.

    And do not even bother posting "it was a mistke" or they "didn't know it was there" because even Obama's people said that they DID IT ON PURPOSE!!!!

    I've read--but can't verify--that the parks service is responsible for the placement of the portajohns.

    Funny, there was a concert there that day. Most people apparently were there for the concert, and he happened to piggy back.

    Well, in defense of Obama, #1 its not like it was his decision where to set them up, and #2 it says in the article that his staffers set them up there for wheelchair access. Without seeing the grounds we can't tell if that is a legit decision. Leaving that part out is a weswelker-style move. I'd say he should just apologize for the unfortunate placement and move on. Remember, its awful tough to control all your staffers, there are plenty of crazy people/jerks helping to run all 3 campaigns.

    What part of putting toilets onto of a memorial to fallen cops, is a "legit decision", boy you can really spin anything.

    Obama is a pure political entity. I really highly doubt that Obama would order something like this to be done, it's politically damaging. Maybe some scumbags that worked for him/setup the event did, but Obama can hardly be blamed for that.

    Stokes and I are hardly in the Obama camp, I can safely say that I would never cast a vote for him. We're just not thinking that this sounds like something legit to criticize Obama. This is like the flag pin thing; there's plenty of other more significant things that he can be questioned about.

    The first comment after the blog entry says that placement of portopotties there has been normal for several years, and that maybe the city planners should be taken to task for it---since there was a concert going on at the same time.

    On the bright side at least none of Obama's friends in attendance blew any of cops up that day.

    No, but there were quite a few Republicans hanging out at the porta potties.

    Its not spin, its taking an honest look at the situation. I criticize people on the left in this forum for being misleading, its only fair that I scrutinize posts from the right that are misleading. Take a look at a paul's comments, its not as cut and dry as Obama supporters put toilets on a police memorial because they wanted to.

    Two great lines.

    It was a dopey thing to do, and any "event" orginizer should be careful about that kinda stuff (hence my earlier comment). I tend to agree that this isn't really an "Obama" thing. Probably some brain dead event staff people scrwing up.

    Hard to make it a lefty or righty thing.

    Gee...no love for the first guy to say it had nothing to do with Obama, or the first guy to post that, despite that, Obama's campaign chair had apologized...nice to see. :rocker:

    I see how you are.
    It's good to know.
