During my young dating years I knew that if a girl was chewing gum during one of our dates that the relationship was soon to be doomed. I felt it was a reflection of how little the girl thought of our relationship, and when I came across that I found the girl would break up with me soon after.
What would it mean if a person of importance was chewing gum in front of you, say at a memorial service for many people who had just died?
That must be the question the people of Joplin are asking themselves now. The President, hot off his Guinness and golf tour of the UK, had to make time in his busy partying schedule to go to Joplin and pretend he cared, just as my dates tried to pretend they cared, until the next day.
In the clip posted here you will see a memorial speech for those lost to the recent tornado in Joplin, then the camera scans the audience to show the President, who appears to be chewing gum. I wonder, if it was Bazooka Joe gum, did the President blow a really huge bubble, then pop it as the speaker was finishing up? Watch the video and tell us what you think.
It is funny how this was not mentioned in the main stream press. What would have the reaction been had President Bush been caught chewing gum at a memorial for the people in New Orleans? What would the press do if they had a shot of Sarah Palin chewing gum in any instance? I dare say we might have gotten tired of the coverage.
