Default Brazilians Protesting Obama's Visit

Anyone see these from the MSM?...

Of course not...It's says "Obama", not "Bush"...






Translated from Portugese, here's the Brazil media outlet Ultimo Segundo

Protest in Rio against Obama visit has Molotov cocktail

Quote:
A protest against the visit to Brazil of U.S. president, Barack Obama, ended in confusion late on Friday in the center of Rio de Janeiro. It should arrive to the country tomorrow and stay until the morning of Monday.

According to the Reserved Service of the 13th Military Police Battalion (Tiradentes Square), the protesters threw a Molotov cocktail at the U.S. Consulate. Part of the device reached a vigilante and his vest caught fire. To counter the confusion, MPs threw stun grenades and tear gas.

The PM said at least 13 people attending the protest were arrested and taken to the police station the avenue Gomes Freire (Precinct 5) in the center."
US Consulate on fire because of protests against Obama?...

Search from CNN reveals zip...Nothing on an ABC search...Neither with MSNBC...Washington Post is mum, too...So is the New York Times...

Media Blackout...The myths must live!...

Only John Cleese or possibly Steve Martin should deliver a line like this.

A "Brazilian."

That's the number that Bush thought came after a trillion.

I wonder what they are protesting? Are they protesting him? Are they protesting his policies? Are they protesting him because he represents America?

It would be interesting to find out.

I think this (at the bottom of the story) might shed a little light.

Seems to me, it might be about America...........not Obama personally.

That would be a real bummer for the Obama detractors though.

The drooling love affair with obama continues. In the leftist mind atleast.
