(NewsCore) - As Republican presidential candidates scurry around the state campaigning for support at business after business, one local restaurant is hoping not to get involved in the hype leading up to the state's Jan. 10 primary. "No Politicians No Exceptions" reads the sign taped to the entrance of Colby's Breakfast & Lunch, a popular eatery in Portsmouth, N.H. Employee Jessica Labrie, who made the sign and taped it on the outer door of the restaurant, said she posted it Tuesday in response to several complaints from customers. "They make a big deal when they came in here," she said. "You can watch all this stuff on the news, but when you're here eating breakfast, you don't want to hear it." The most recent candidate visit came Monday when Roemer, a fringe candidate, stopped by. Labrie said Roemer popped in unexpectedly and announced who he was to the entire restaurant. "It disrupted people's conversations who were having breakfast," she said.
Pretty much sums up the GOP candidates, no? This isn't a pro-Democrat, or pro-Obama post either, just a mere commentary on the fact that a small diner in New Hampshire and its customers are actively choosing to avoid small talk with someone who could be the next POTUS, instead opting to focus on their Hungry Man breakfast and hunting chit-chat (I'm assuming, its New Hampshire).
How big of an ego blow is that? "Hey guys, we know you're potentially about to become the most powerful man in the world, but we're talking about breakfast, it's the most important meal of the day, ya know." Sad thing is, I really, really want to like one of these candidates, I'd love a competitive race against Obama, but none of these guys are going to give it to him. If you can't win over the owner of a diner and a few regulars, you stand no chance in a general election. I'm pretty sure we covered that in Poli-Sci 101 my freshmen year.
