Subject: TRAVEL POOL REPORT #3 — arrival at Orlando Hilton
As the motorcade pulled into the hotel site where the Disabled American Veterans are holding their convention, it passed about 50 protestors on both sides of street, many of them older and most of them white. Among the many signs they were holding up were those saying, “Kenyan Go Home,” “Impeach Obama” and “Obama Lies.”
We’re holding in a ballroom where, a Vietnam veteran told me, about 3,400 people were present to hear the Obamas. Mrs. Obama is being introduced now. The event is open press. For those not here or watching livestream, look for transcript for remarks this afternoon.
