It appears that Barack Obama is going to wrap up his campaign in none other than Manassas Park. What a fitting end to his campaign.
Let’s completely overwhelm some creaky transportation infrastructure as ObamaManiacs flood route 29 to get to this rally, in a jurisdiction that doesn’t have anything approaching an appropriate venue for something of this size. Fer cryin’ out loud, the Governing Board meetings in Manassas Park are held in a room with capacity for perhaps fifteen observers at most. The local schools have little more than an athletic field to host a rally. And Obama is going to capstone his campaign here? It’s nuts.
The congestion and utter confusion that will ensue will be a fitting bookmark on this campaign, though. Folks stuck in traffic will have plenty of time to observe what high taxes, a permissive attitude towards the unlawful presence of illegal aliens, non-enforcement of the law, and a hostile attitude towards business can create. I doubt they’ll take a moment to reflect on what the country might look like if Manassas Park was overlaid over the United States as a whole, but they should. Underneath the hype and rhetoric, what Manassas Park has become is what Obama stands for.
No word yet on whether Obama will mount a flying white steed at the end of what will certainly become an utter fiasco. Folks who are supposed to be saviors are supposed to have a big finish, right?
