Getting the message (again)..

Via Drudge and CBS:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa — President Obama received a less than warm welcome and a warning upon arrival at the airport here on the second stop of his Iowa visit, which was aimed at recapturing some of the magic the state gave his run to the White House in 2008.

Greeting Air Force One as it touched down under sunny skies and sultry heat was  a hand-painted banner draped across the top of an airplane hangar that reads, “Obama Welcome to SUX – We Did Build This.” “SUX” is the airport code for Sioux City.

The message appeared to be a response President Obama’s “you didn’t build that” remark from a July campaign rally, when he was trying to explain that government — not businesses — constructed public infrastructure on which the economy relies. Republicans have used the four words to attack Obama as out of touch with the realities of owning and operating a small business.
So SUX is the ICAO of Souix City? You know, like LAX (actually KLAX) is for Los Angeles International and and JFK (actually KJFK) is for John F. Kennedy in New York. Sure is helpful to craft a message like that described above with the double entendre!

Sure look like Obama is racking up the greetings from his adoring fans. First Ohio, then Iowa, and now Iowa again.

Think I'm beginning to see a trend here.
