For the second time in as many weeks, persons have walked out during a campaign speech given by President Barack Obama. Last week, it happened as the president spoke in Maryland – and this week, it happened in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, according to a WND report on Tuesday. It was apparent that the president was still delivering his speech as people were marching out of the venue where he was campaigning for Mary Burke, the Democratic Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate who is trying to take incumbent Gov. Scott Walker’s job away from him in the midterm election next week.
Ironically, just as Obama was telling people not to let anybody stand in their way, they could be seen exiting the event. He said, “Don’t let anybody stand in your way. Unless you’re registering on Election Day, you can vote even if you don’t have a photo I.D.” He continued, “Don’t let anybody mislead you.”
The first notion that things were heading south for an Obama appearance again came in a social media message from Mike Lowe who reports for Channel 6 in Milwaukee and uses the Twitter platform as @MikeLoweReports. Around 8 p.m., he tweeted that some people – not many, but some - were leaving the high school where the president was speaking. Just an hour before that, he tweeted a positive message stating that there was a big overflow crowd in the North Division High School gym awaiting the president and candidate Burke. Apparently, what a difference an hour makes.
