Bush threw tantrum(and union jacket )yesterday on Air Force 1,on video,
at Cleveland airport after speech to union is what they are reporting on Akron(S. of Cleveland)talk radio station WNIR.I haven't heard it anywhere else.I saw him on TV live yesterday going up steps of Air Force one with the union jacket in his hand and a big fat sweat stain on back of his shirt(gross bastard).They're saying the camera caught him angrily throwing the jacket to the floor and that he was mad about all the protesters.Their on-air # is 1-800-669=4100.The host who's on now(3-7weekdays,noon-4 Saturdays)is Joe Finan,an actual liberal,believe it or don't,course he's the only liberal at that station and he's in his seventies so...website is http://www.wnir.com

we're doing it. No time to let up.

On edit: Oh, YOU did it?!?! Yes, I get it now (d'uh). Congratulations.


My stupid local paper reported that the motorcade route "took him (Bush) along stately homes in an affluent neighborhood, and clusters of supporters waved signes backing the president." (From AP Wire).

Fortuntaley the myth was dispelled by the accompanying photo that shows protestors (you?) standing in the rain along the motorcade route. Most prominent is a sign that says "Bush Job Thief."

20. Yesterday was NOT a good day for him
I caught a clip of him standing there in that silly cap and in that dark baseball-style jacket, speaking and he was IN THE RAIN. Standing out there, no protection over him from the RAIN! I thought it was absolutely superb.

AWD -- THRILLED to hear your protest scored! Good work!

23. HEHE, THERE IS ACTUALLY A GOOD STORY TO THIS
Edited on Tue Sep-02-03 04:53 PM by sgr2
Originally the protest site was supposed to be right next to where Bush met with his Republican supporters (About 500.) A day before the event the Secret Service informed the AFL-CIO, who organized the protest, that the approved site was not ok due to safety concerns and the protest site was moved to about a mile away. When Congressman Sherrod Brown showed up at the protest everyone just started marching towards the road that Bush's motorcade was supposed to be going through. No permits and no one tried to stop them. There really are only a few ways in and out of Richfield so *'s motorcade couldn't go around them.


NOTE: Their were a LOT of people from the Operators union who decided to attend the protest instead of the Bush PR event. In fact, the Chairman of the Summit County Republican Party, a scumbag who likes to pick up young boys (http://www.clevescene.com/issues/2003-06-11/feature.htm... ), wrote a letter to his supporters pleading for them to show up! The pictures of the event prove this. Guys in suits. Guys in military uniform. Very few women. Actually, when George Bush Sr. came to NE Ohio in 1990 he drew 7,000 people to the Goodyear area. Now Bush is lucky to get 1,000.

74. "safety"?? Bullshit!
Are they worried about attempted assassination? Gee ... how nice of potential assassins to present themselves as protestors. You might think (unlike those on the right) that someone intending to do harm to a President would pretend to be a supporter. No, of course not. As we all know, such folks are always wearing black hats and carrying "Dump Bush" signs. :eyes:

76. "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet"
The earliest use of that phrase that I know of comes from 1927.

The first movie with a real soundtrack, The Jazz Singer, was released that year.

At the end of it, there is a filmed sequence of the star, Al Jolson, coming out onto a stage and saying a few words that end with, "You ain't seen nothin' yet," referring, I suppose, to even bigger and better sound movies currently in production.

By the way, AWD, you do indeed rock!

24. that is amazing--I remember Joe Finan well from his stay in Denver
when I was about 12! My dad was tight with the radio station crew since it was right on Colfax and Lafayette at the Heart o' Denver Hotel and he was the cop du jour (or de nuit, since as I recall Joe was a late night dj) I used to hang out with Joe (if a 12 year old counts as hanging out--what a nutty street kid I was in those days--1963!)

Yikes...I didn't even know what a liberal was. Do I now? not sure... but Finan was the best, as I recall...

25. Watch for the "law" to put more pressure on dissenters.
Future protest zones are likely to be designated in areas further away from his "vision". Our "dear leader" is as mean as his mother and not very smart but his handlers will make it harder for us to be seen and heard; harder for our already slanted media to portray our position on "his ignorance".

...yes, it's true. The footage does exist. "Turn on the news" was Mr. Finan's advice.

We'll see if we can get this footage taped and uploaded.

You know, I was proud yesterday when we protested...but if we were the ones who made him crack, I will put it on my freakin' RESUME!

has anyone sent this to Malloy.... sure is the kind of thing he'd enjoy!

is there any print coverage???

this means we REALLY need to pull something BIG (with WHISTLES) every time he tries to make an appearance...

NYC is defintely going to give him (and the entire puke posse) a seriously hard time when he brings his 'i'm robbing you blind' road show here...

the pretender has let the lie slip while the cameras were on him...


"There was a group of protestors along the road when Bush returned to the Hopkins airport. He got so upset that when he was getting back on Air Force 1 he took off the union jacket he had on and threw it to the ground. The local affiliates are all playing it for the nightly news as I speak.

UGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!"


Yep and the footage of W throwing a union jacket on the ground will be shown ove and over and over again in every union state in this country.

101. LOL:
To: ETERNAL WARMING

There was a group of protestors along the road when Bush returned to the Hopkins airport. He got so upset that when he was getting back on Air Force 1 he took off the union jacket he had on and threw it to the ground. The local affiliates are all playing it for the nightly news as I speak.

UGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!

41. Listen to this speech....he is slurring.
It is the video right under the mopaul-like image of Bush.
http://www.actionnewsnow.com/Global/story.asp?S=1422514
This video shows part of his speech not on CNN. Wonder why?

This is not very complimentary to him. About time.

83. Don't hear the slurring, I have to say, but...
I dig the totally unenthusiastic expressions on the faces of his soaking wet 'supporters'!

Man, they look like they're at a funeral. Of someone they didn't like, but have to pretend they respected.

C ya,

95. Yeah - how many were in his audience?
I watched a few minutes on CSPAN last night and I think Whistle-Ass was pissed cause it seemed to be a small crowd with very tepid applause. Then he had to wear that jacket in the rain and I bet he was sweating and steaming under it.

Plus you great protestors.

And he was probably missing his workout and nap. Poor baby. Throwing a hissy fit temper tantrum - hope that video gets out.

54. HOLY SHIT! You gotta check this out....

go here...

http://www.actionnewsnow.com/Global/category.asp?C=3309...

then click on the "Tattoo Gypsy gives an extreme 'Reality Check' for President Bush" link.



CLick on the "Despite rain, protestors and supporters show up for presidential visit" link to see the protesters, and very unimpressed supporters.


And note the Dean signs in the crowds of protesters.

Dean will wipe the floor with Bush in Ohio.

71. It should be noted....
...that during my bullhorn-ranting yesterday, I said that "A lot of people here are supporting different candidates in 2004"

I said "Many are supporting Dean" (loud cheer)
I said "Many are supporting Kerry" (mild cheer...not bashing, it's what happened)
I said "Many are supporting Kucinich" (HUGE cheer)

The people were clearly DK supporters...

But when I said "After the primaries, we ALL join the same camp and vote out Bush", the cheer was amazing.

58. The Pubbies have done an excellent job so far
If Lil George has thrown other temper tantrums, the public hasn't gotten much of a look at it. All you see on the news clips is the Smirking Simian podium dancing, and looking pleased with himself every time he pronounces a three syllable word mostly correctly.

It's been a little discouraging to do all this protesting and never hear about how it's affecting the Chimperial Majesty. Actual footage of the Dim Son losing it would be a real shot in the arm for a lot of people!

59. I absolutely LOVE Joe Finan,
I have for about 16 years now, since I first heard him when I was at Kent State. He's the only voice of calming sanity on the sea of repuke idiocy that is the rest of the station. Actually, AWD, he was born in 1923, so he's now 80! I hope he lives and lasts forever!

He nails Shrub for exactly what he is. He once said that "people are always saying how they're tired of the Kennedys. Well, I'm tired of the damned Bushes!" He caught flak for that, but he stuck to his guns, so to speak!

That's me with the bullhorn.

Not the first guy with the red horn, but the one yelling "Bush Lied People Died"

I'm about 20 seconds into the video...watch it, and HEAR THE BOOS that reign down on Shrub as he passes us...

If anybody does get video of him tossing the Union jacket and can capture stills, please do so, and host them somewhere. It would make a great poster at union events.
