Yesterday, POTUS Barack Obama was in Boston for a fundraiser at Symphony Hall and he decided to have some fun at the expense of poke Red Sox nation nearing the end of speech.
Obama, a noted Chicago White Sox fan, thanked Boston for trading Kevin Youkilis to Chicago. Reminding the crowd about Youk changing the color of his Sox incited a chorus of boos:
But you gotta wonder why Obama is spending that much time doing public appearances in Massachusetts anyway. Their Sox may be red, but the state, politically, is bluer than a smurf. As is all of the northeast. According to Electoral-Vote.com, Obama is up 51-34% in Mass. and 314-224 in the overall electoral race. But to secure that lead, Obama should keep traveling to Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin.
