President Obama Crashes Wedding In Iowa, Leaves Awesome Gift - PHOTO and VIDEO

Last edited Sat Sep 22, 2012, 10:11 PM - Edit history (1)





One Iowa couple recently received a wedding gift that they aren't going to forget in a hurry.

-snip-

Turns out, President Obama had planned a last-minute rally at the Living History Farms in Urbandale, Iowa on September 1. Only problem? There was a wedding happening at the very same location on the same day.

Thankfully, both the rally and wedding went off without a hitch, (the rally ended about an hour before the start of the wedding) and when all was said and done, the newlyweds received this sweet note from the Commander-in-Chief:

1. That is an intrusion that will be something to remember.

And it looks like they got something to remember it by.

COOL!

2. I hope he made sure they're voting for him first.

Wouldn't want to give anything to them if they're not worthy of his consideration.

8. That actually does underscore the difference between them.

Obama leaves a thoughtful note and gift.

Romney wouldn't walk across the street to spit on you if you weren't one of his voters. He might pay someone else to do it though.

4. In a similar situation, Romney's team left behind a bad odor.

5. That was considerate & thoughtful of President Obama.

If it had been Rob-me's rally, I could imagine him going over his alloted time, then briskily rushing past the wedding party waiting in the hot sun to get inside as he & his SS people left the place.

10. Contrast this Romney's

...campaign stop in Iowa two weeks earlier. Romney held a closed-door, private meeting for donors who paid anywhere from 5k-20k to attend. The event was held at Glenn Oaks Country Club; the most exclusive country club in the state. The media wasn't allowed to film, but I heard done audio. He made some very bizarre comments about cheese.

While Obama greets an excited crowd of 10,000+ at Living History Farms--Romney hides behind solid oak doors and only allows entrance to those who can fork over thousands for admission.

I was at Obama's Living History event that day. I didn''t have to pay to attend, but the day was priceless!

14. A tray and a mint julep cup

"Neither the bride nor the groom were registered Republicans" but they were pretty good about it: "Love him or hate him, it's still pretty cool" said the husband.

Not sure I'd be a gracious is Bush had jeopardized my big day.
