Obama in Lancaster

Barack Obama has begun speaking at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology in Lancaster, but he's inaudible due to the cheering.

Obama in Lancaster


Thomas Fitzgerald reports:

12:07 p.m.

This internet meme will not die. An earnest young man in a ball cap asked Barack Obama where he stood on the plan to unite Canada the U.S. and Mexico, with a new currency, the "amero." The man also asked if it was true that Obama was a member of the "globalist" Council on Foreign Relations?

"With all due respect," Obama said, "I see no evidence...there is no conspiracy to create one continental government." He also said that he has spoken to the Council on Foreign Relations, which ihe said is not a nefarious group, but does not think that makes him an official member. "I don't have a membership card and there's no special handshake or anything," he said.


10:46 a.m.

Barack Obama, the candidate of hope, the self-described "hopemonger," starts off with a real bummer. The economy "teetering on the edge of chaos," college unaffordable, 47 million without health care, an endless and wrong-headed war, "the people who killed 3,000 Americans still plotting against us because we are distracted."

Somehow, I think that the hope will come. Here it is: "I'm here to report that the American people are ready." For change, to come together politically and racially.


10:33 a.m.

Barack Obama has begun speaking at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology in Lancaster, but  he's inaudible due to the cheering, kicking off the fourth day of the 6-day busathon.

"I'm having a great time," he said. "We played some basketball with Bob casey and neither of us got injured. We stopped by some sports bars and had, I admit, a few beers. I fed a calf with a big bottle and theat went alright and then we went bowling, which didn't go so well. There was an 8-year-old giving me tips."
