Downeast Mainers were left with dropped jaws over the weekend when their daily lives were constantly interrupted by armed security guards, and hi speed black limousines in convoy careening around the narrow laid back country lanes of Mt. Desert Island.
Downeasters, often called 'slightly insular', where amazed to find out later that President of the US Barrack Hussein Obama , his family and entourage had taken over the pristine island for the past three days.
Many thought it was a United Nations conference and swore to all and sundry they had either seen Nigerian President Goodluck Johnson, or Zimbabwe strong man Robert Mugabe riding in flagged draped black armored Cadillacs surrounded by a host of "big black guys with berets and carrying AK-47's and some big sticks."
Residents were shocked to hear later over the weather channel after an emergency alert had been sounded, that what they were seeing was Barry Obama and his posse taking a whirlwind tour of 'white americana' surrounded and protected by members of The New Black Panther Party (NBPP) led by Malik Zulu Shabazz, formerly known as Jeremey "Dawg" DePeau of Detroit, Michigan.
Some Mainers were still not convinced. Said Willard "Fuzzy" Applewaite who had only left Maine once, and that was to travel to Guadacanal with the Marines in the 1940's before returning home, " I still think it was Goodluck
Johnson. When I shouted out to him asking when our Economy would turn around he shouted back to me "GOODLUCK!" It certainly must have been him, dag gummit!"
"I don't think it was Obama," said Ethel Beale of the Beales Island Beales, "I think it was Magabe the guy that bankrupted his country after he threw out all the white farmers and redistributed their land. Now they're starving to death and inflation is doubling every 1.3 days, saw that on Fox you know.
I think he's over here for a meeting with Obama about a deal for asylum, or maybe a big loan...it couldn't be Obama, no president of the United States would hide behind blacked out windows like that and travel through Seal Harbor at 85 MPH....only Martha Stewart does that kind of shit!"
Many locals wondered after the fact why the president, if indeed it was the president, hadn't vacationed in Lewiston, Maine, now home to the biggest contingent of Somali refugees (sic) in the US once they heard of the freebies given out there.
"You would think he'd want to go visit his base," said Daryl & Daryl Strongstock, the conjoined twins from Mooselick, " I mean, Lewiston went 99% for Obama in the last election...he didn't get one vote up here on Mt. Desert...as a matter of fact, I don't think his name was even on the ballot!"
Barry Ward, a vacationer from away said he got to see the President close up
when he stopped for a Lobster Roll at the Trenton Lobster Pound.
"I was quite surprised, really, " said Ward, " when you see him up close I was amazed that for a guy with such big ears he sure don't want to listen!"
