My guess is one word....MONEY. He can come here and hob nob with the mostly minority Democrat machine and sell expensive dinner plates. Not saying there's anything wrong with him doing that, but that would be my guess as to why he comes back here.

Plus, I think he's hoping as a long shot that he might make some traction here. Georgia is a bigger player these days with our 16 electoral votes, and if he could somehow pull off an upset, that's the equivalent of Michigan and just 2 short of Ohio. Only FL, NY, OH and PA have more electoral votes east of the Mississippi in 2012. In fact, GA is in the top 10 of electoral votes nationally now.

^ That may be true but Georgia's Electoral votes are worthless to Obama anyways. He lost your state in 2008 by 5% to McCain. Are you guys being bombarded with political ads 24/7 from both sides like we are?

No. I haven't seen one political ad on local tv yet.

Therefore, all this talk about Obama being a hypocrite for eating a Varsity hot dog while encouraging healthy eating (via his wife) is nothing but ignorant blather.
And there you have it. Rep point for you.

Lately I have been seeing RNC sponsored ads on MSNBC.

so sick of this wannabe celebrity and poor excuse for a president...

And no folks I did not give either Bush a pass either, both bushes spent too much and grew the size of Gov neither were true Conservatives.. They were both Progressive republicans..

Romney may not be perfect but at least he loves this country and is not a Communist..

If people can't see there is a clear choice this go around we are truly sunk and will get what we deserve..

What does this blather have to do with the topic, or with Atlanta? Take this garbage to the politics forum.

I love how liberals get mad when a conservative voices their opinion! I thought they were so open and accepting!

Very weak response. If it were on topic, I would have said nothing.

Thank you!

And First Lady Michelle Obama's weight loss program is just another nanny state idea. When I heard about the whole Beyonce thing I was disgusted; if a Republican did that it would be unprofessional, etc. in the liberals opinion.

I love the food stamp ads because we need more government leaches! My wife found it racist being in the ad that they used black women.(she is black/white) My wife thinks Al Sharpton and many other "liberal black leaders" act like blacks cannot accomplish anything for themselves. My wife was a single mother for a few years and paid for two children in private schools, no child support from the ex husband, no government handouts, etc.
