What should Obama do while in town? [ED – Vote 1 Ride with Rat Patrol!]

By creative_canberran - 4 October 2011 43

The US Embassy in Canberra is asking users on Facebook to suggest things he should do while in town next month. So head on over and tell him what to see and do in our fair city, or if they’re the sort of keywords that may illicit interest from intelligence services, post below.

Existing suggestions include give a speech at ANU (assuming the Secret Service Counter Assault Teams can overcome the Spring fluff), have a Brodburger, visit Mooseheads (probably ending up like this) and take his motocade through a McDonalds drive through at lunchtime (perhaps in Charnwood?).

[ED – Vote 1 Ride with Rat Patrol! You know it makes sense. A proven track record for getting celebrities to actually enjoy being in Canberra.]

What’s Your opinion?

I think he’d enjoy a nice cup of coffee and maybe a slice of cake at a café somewhere. You can’t get good coffee in America.

Pick up the tab that the Feds stiff us with.

I’d say he should avoid coming to Australia, and spend the money/time on fixing his own country. I don’t particularly see any point on bringing himself, a tank disguised as a car, and hundreds of support crew for a PR stunt.

Visit Tidbinbilla Tracking Station. Do you think the LDA could sort the Molonglo roadworks out in time?

Not bad – “Honeybilla”, as the yanks called it, did broadcast the first moon landing.

I wish Floriade was still on and he’d go to it. Can you imagine. “Welcome to Canberra Mr President. Here are some daffodils.”

Not ride with the rat patrol.

Dinner with Bob Brown?

nobody said :

He should give Parliament House a miss, it’s just full of politicians and their sycophants.

I think Congress and the power politics in Chicago may have desensitised him a bit. Wouldn’t mind seeing him visit one of the neighbouring Asian legislatures, the ones where they throw punches and rice at one another all too frequently.

If he rides with Rat Patrol I’ll bring the mully cup for a photo!

Holden Caulfield 5:09 pm 04 Oct 11

Lay a wreath at the Mully Memorial.

He should come to Queanbeyan, and meet some real Australians.

johnboy 4:47 pm 04 Oct 11

He should totally go for a ride with Rat Patrol.
