Hours After Meeting Obama, Ohio Restaurant Owner Dies


www.weeklystandard.com

The owner of an Akron restaurant where President Barack Obama stopped for breakfast this morning died, apparently of a heart attack, shortly after meeting him.

Josephine “Ann” Harris, 70, of Copley Township, was taken by ambulance to Akron General Medical Center after complaining of fatigue and a tingling feeling. She was pronounced dead at 11:18 a.m., according to the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office.

I have said it before, but I hate coincidences. Yes, I know the whole "correlation does not imply causation" thing, but come on? What are the odds?

Going out on a very thin limb here, but could it have been an assassination attempt on Obama? Perhaps someone put something in the food and it was mistakenly eaten by the owner rather than Barack?

Well why would the owner mistakenly eat Obama's food? Doesn't make sense. He works in the food industry. Just probably a simple heart attack with no conspiracy behind it.

I'm sure the whole advance Secret Service team, background check and security clearance experience that comes with having a sitting President visit your establishment is pretty darn stressful.

I don't think I'd ever be so excited to meet ANY President, as to have a heart attack.

These sorts of events are likely incredibly stressful on people, and it's likely that she was experiencing symptoms for a while and didn't notice or consider them anything other than "nerves" at meeting the President. Stress related heart attack is far more likely (by an order of magnitude) than anything nefarious.

Prayers to her family in their grief.

no I don't think so.

If a president is coming to your place for breakfast, you'd be sure they know well ahead of time.

She probably was so stressed wanting everything to be perfect, and then the added adrenalin rush of him actually being there, just was too much for her ol ticker to take.

Sad really, but I don't see a conspiracy in this, just an elderly woman who must have had an enormous amount of stress, and adrenalin in a short few days.

I don't know, I might have a heart attack if I were to meet Abe Lincoln.
Or maybe I just had one...

I think it was most likely that candidates meet so many people, many of them old, that it is bound to happen. It has probably happened before and will happen again.

Absolutely. She was old, and this was incredible pressure to put on her restraunt. It wasn't just meeting the president, it was the president in HER restraunt.

Never look Obama directly in the eyes. . .you see what happens.
jk
It was probably the stress of it all. Old folks still think the president is somebody really special.

Maybe she heard something that she wasn't supposed to hear? then she was given a wiff of that drug that causes heart attacks and leaves no clues!!

There is no foul play here, folks. Not everything has a conspiracy behind it


Like other people have said, I'd put it down to there being a hell of a lot of stress behind making preparations, etc.

in other news, 300 or so other 70 year old women died last week. 20 of them died shortly after bringing in the mail. Maybe the mail was tainted.

Oddly enough, not necessarily. During the Clinton years when some democratic convention was held in San Antonio, Clinton and his entourage ate at my father's restaurant. No real notice. Other customers were kicked out mid meal, the street was closed down, etc. My father had no notice whatsoever and was called by his employees in the middle of it all to be told what was happening. lol

Maybe they didn't want to give advance notice for security reasons?

Anyways, I doubt there is much to the story. She probably just got excited, already had a condition, etc.

Prayers go out to her family. That's very sad. Worse than all the people who were fainting during Obama's campaign speeches.

In my line of work whenever we get anyone of importance visiting the building or local surroundings you see tonnes of people wandering about. It's surprising really, especially when you work in a secure government building so god knows what it's like for a small town restaurant where the likelihood is they are kept under some form of surveiliance beforehand and the relevant vetting and security checks are carried out.

This is not a conspiracy.

Obama apparently told the owner truth about how much taxes are really going to go up and how many penalties are going to be placed on small business owners.



With that said, I don't think there is any conspiracy there.

I didn't realize that..so if you only get notice in the middle of the night, that's got to add to the stress


My prayers are with them as well.

I hope they get a nice condolence card from the president and first lady,.I'm sure they will. They better .
