More than 20 people faint at Obama rally
"The pool report on President Obama's trip to Roanoke, Virginia says that more than 20 people fainted during the president's speech this evening. "TV viewers may have heard POTUS pointed out a couple of faintings during the rally in downtown Roanoke," writes the pool report. "In fact, fire officials say more than 20 people fell out during the course of the speech. There were waves of exclamation as one person after another swooned." Paramedics treated 21 people on the scene and took one to the hospital, according to the Roanoke fire department. It was warm out and the crowd of 3,000-plus was packed tightly into the 4-block area, the deputy fire marshal said by way of explanation. Volunteers passed around cups of water but some people didn't take them, he said."
One after another fainted? 'By way of explanation' is what gets me. They try to explain, but they can't. It is a phenomenon. I wonder why people faint when Obama looks at them? I have my theories. I am sure you have yours. In any case, I can't wait for the rapture...
