Obama Asks Bar Owner to Turn Off Fox News
Perhaps the criticism is hitting a bit close to home.
During an unannounced campaign drop-in at Ziggy's Pub and Restaurant in Amherst, OH, President Barack Obama suggested the bar owner change the channel after being told that Fox News was on the pub TV. The reply from the man could be deemed priceless if taken as the reason why it was on in the first place: "The customer is always right..."
Later, the Obama press people tried to spin it as him just being humorous, and offering to arm wrestle the obviously conservative bar owner for his vote. But of course! Obama has done the same thing time and time again: following up un-Presidential comments by trying to make it seem like he was being funny. Just like when the mafia makes you "an offer you can't refuse" while smiling?
