Oh, my! The Stuttering Messiah has done it again. He’s worked another miracle.
Yes, he’s saved another American from sure poverty, and “changed his life forever,” with just a glance, and a few kind words.
Now, instead of his $7.85 an hour job flipping burgers at McDonald’s, young Julio Osegueda has “rocketed” to “instant celebrity” after confronting the Obama-messiah after a town hall meeting in Florida about forcing companies like McDonald’s to give “benefits.”
And what kind of “instant celebrity” did Mr. Osegueda obtain, after his wondrous encounter with the Obama-messiah? A one-day job as “color announcer” for the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team’s radio broadcast for its opening game on April 10.
According to Osegueda, who was later interviewed by idiot MSNBC news reader, Kieth Olberman, whose masquerade as a journalist has gone far too long past its expiration date, “I have never felt this good except maybe when I got my PlayStation 3 for Christmas.”
Wow. Let’s hope the Obama-messiah can do that for everyone. Surely, we’ll see an end to poverty by…well…by…the turn of the century.
And while we’re at it, let’s hope the news media continues to fawn over every similar great and wondrous miracle the Obama-messiah works among his adoring public. You can hear the chants now, as more and more poor people trade in their jobs at McDonald’s for their 15 minutes of fame with the Obama-messiah: “Yes, we can!” “Yes, we can!” “Yes, we can!”
Worst of all, according the below news article, as the young man stood face to face with the Obama-messiah, he excitedly exclaimed “Thank you, Lord Jesus!”
I think I’m going to be sick…
‘Thank you, Lord Jesus!’ Excited young man lands job — for a day — after asking Obama a question
It was quite a moment at the end of President Obama’s town hall meeting in Fort Myers, Fla., yesterday. As The News-Press writes, 19-year-old Julio Osegueda “rocketed from a Cape Coral teenager who flips burgers for $7.85 an hour at a McDonald’s to an instant celebrity of sorts.”
And he got a temporary job.
For those who didn’t see what happened at the town hall when Osegueda asked the president about when he and other low-wage workers might be able to get job benefits, here’s the video:
“I have never felt this good except maybe when I got my PlayStation 3 for Christmas,” Osegueda told the News-Press later.
After the event, the newspaper adds, Osegueda:
Picked up another job — if just for a day — as the color announcer for the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team’s radio broadcast for its home opener April 10. The one-day gig typically pays $25, but the Miracle said the salary is negotiable.
“I’ll be ready,” he said about his debut.
Also during Tuesday’s town hall, a 61-year-old woman named Henrietta Hughes told the president that she and her 37-year-old son are homeless after having their house foreclosed. She asked for his help. Obama said he would, and his staff put Hughes in touch with local housing authority officials.
The News-Press reports that:
Their story got the attention of another person who wanted to help.
While local and national media swarmed Henrietta Hughes for interviews, Chene Thompson, wife of State Rep. Nick Thompson, grabbed Hughes’ hand and offered them a house.
The house is in LaBelle, the first home Chene Thompson bought after law school. “Just give me the opportunity to help you,” Chene Thompson told her.
But as of Tuesday night, the Hughes had not contacted the Thompsons about coming to see the house. Their cell phone is out of minutes, so it is nearly impossible to get in touch with them.
Update at 11:45 a.m. ET. Osegueda was on last night’s edition of MSNBC’s always liberal Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Here’s some of the back-and-forth Julio had with Keith:
Olbermann: “Were you satisfied with the president’s actual answer to your question about improving your benefits?”
Osegueda: “Yes, I was. I was truly blessed. The answer that Mr. President Obama gave me was such a motivation that made me feel as if success is around the corner. Just keep trying hard and don’t stop for anything.”
Update at 1:45 p.m. ET: An Oval reader points out that Julio doesn’t say “thank you, Lord Jesus,” in the video above. According to the News-Press, here’s where that line came from:
“I jumped up on my chair, screamed my lungs out and shouted ‘you’re the man, pick me, pick me.’ I felt good,” Osegueda said (describing what he did to get Obama’s attention).
Then, Obama changed his life. “Thank you Lord Jesus,” (Osegueda) said he shouted as he stood face to face with the president.
