Gas Station Owner Changes His 3 Station Name To Honor President Obama
DETROIT -- Despite criticism of rising gas prices, the owner of three metro Detroit gas stations named after president Barack Obama said he's standing behind his decision.
Sam Bazzi said he felt so much respect for Obama when he was elected that he changed the name of his stations to "Obama." Now, more than two years later, a decline in the economy and the president's sliding approval rates, Bazzi said he doesn't think the name on his business has any negative impact.
Bazzi said he keeps his gas prices a few cents below those of other major companies.
But what do his customers think about seeing the gas price tag rise next to the smiling face of Obama?
Customer Famous Ellis said he doesn't blame the president for the high gas prices.
"No, I can't do that," he said. "He's doing everything he can to help us out."
Fellow customer Monte Harris said there's other ways to combat rising gas prices than to just pass the blame.
"More than anything, we need to get those electric cars out here," he said. "With that, we don't need to worry about gas that much."
Bazzi said his Obama stations have garnered international attention. He said a French television crew was just visiting him last week.
Bazzi said even if Obama isn't reelected, he won't change the stations' names because the president has already brought him enough good will.

That's pretty damn funny I do hope it catches on
These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read:
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, this is the beginning of the end of any nation.
This is an old picture around 2008 election time. The other picture is another gas station entirely. There is no photo-shopping. There really are at least 2 different Obama Gas Stations. There may be 3 Obama Gas Stations because one has an electronic gas price sign.

US Army reporter asked Frank Zappa just who does he think will defend the country without the army? Zappa’s reply: “From what? The biggest threat to America today is it’s own federal government…. Will the Army protect anybody from the FBI? The IRS? The CIA? The Republican Party? The Democratic Party?....The biggest dangers we face today don’t even need to sneak past our billion dollar defense system….they issue the contracts for them.”
Obama is "Movin-On-Up"
He has at least 4 Gas Stations & 1 Town named after him.
With all the lip service Obama gives alternative fuels I wonder why none of his gas stations sell Ethanol, Bio-Diesel, Hydrogen, CNG, LNG, or Propane? He seems to prefer to support the foreigners. His actions don't match his rhetoric & neither does his customer base.
