Obama caused the death of Bill's Barbecue?

A new ad from Mitt Romney rests the blame for the closing of Bill's Barbecue squarely on the shoulders of Barack Obama. Let me take a step into the political arena for the first time in the two year history of this blog and say that his claim is completely ridiculous. Feel free to add your own thoughts in the comments.

  1. I agree....there are many other BBQ joints around Richmond that sell way better BBQ and have been thriving in the economy. BBQ after all is cheap eats given the royal treatment. Bill's was dry and tasteless and the remaining places before the shut down were terribly unsanitary. It's been going downhill for many years even before anyone knew the name Obama. What it really does is give Richmond small business a bad name.

  5. I'm sorry Bills went belly-up but I don't think Obama had anything to do with it. I don't think Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan or any other president kept them in business or hastened their demise. There were simply better options available for the former patrons to choose.

  6. And an ad from Barack Obama ignorantly blamed the death of a woman on Mitt Romney. This is why you shouldn't step into politics!

  7. Anonymous: yup, you're correct. That was a sleazy ad from a pro Obama PAC (not Obama himself). Now back to this post. Do you agree with this ad that Obama cause Bill's to have mediocre BBQ and very few customers for a good 20+ years?

  8. Romney proved in the 2012 election that he would sink to any low in order to gain a few undecided votes. What a sleazeball.

  9. And also, I'm glad the chain went belly-up. They knew Romney's claim was a lie, but did nothing in the way of refuting that claim. Typical GOP politics.
