Same thing here. This may have been a once in a life time event for someone but some jerks felt that their message was more important.

"Don't rain on someone else's parade"
I agree. Regardless if one agrees/disagrees with the message, I think it's selfish to bring politics into something that should just be a fun enjoyable day out. There's a time and place for everything. But given many people are selfish and feel their agenda rules above all others, I suppose we shouldn't be surprised. The same people posting here with high fives on the content are probably the same mentality of the people who did the skywriting....me me me. And as if this is really going to sway anyone one way or the other about how they feel about any given topic but I suppose people who are selfish/self-important don't think in such terms.

This is why he won't become President. Too many Republicans will stay home and too many Dems will turn up at the polls to make sure he doesn't become President out of fear. He's insane.

I don't think sanity is one of BHO's strong suits yet democrats love them some Barry.

Come on now......

And our current POTUS isn't on reality shows, talk shows and doing skits on them, been on show's like Jon Stewart how many times, etc?.......talk about the reality show circuit and the publicity factor.

Also I know it is a fine line, but you're right on the line of violating TOS, you must stay on topic and not veer off into political commentary.
Most, perhaps yourself included, favor the more slick and the more surface cordial lying type of politician who speak PC and speak to people in a way that makes them feel like they are "presidential". Funny the bill of goods sold to so many in a slick wrapper but that appears to be changing a bit.
My comment wasn't political opinion at all, it was a direct comment of what HIS good friend Donny Deutcsh said on the Today Show about him. Again, he wasn't saying it to be hateful, he really thinks the whole thing is humorous. I don't hate him, I just said "here's what his friend said". You're just lashing out at whoever's within arms length.

I would not be surprised if he shows up drunk to a press conference wearing a top hat and flips over the podium at this point. I also agree with ocnjgirl post about him just wanting to win. For the record on my part, I think he is a clown and overgrown child with lots of green. Just sayin'.

Calling people names doesn't excuse why he has so many votes.
If there is a man who can gain votes regardless of all the smear going on I think there is more to it than meets the eye.
Let's be honest for a minute, everyone just wants to win. Better his green than a lobbyist.

If air space is the new political platform I won't be thrilled. I'm surprised it didn't read:
