Obama gets hair cut in private; Hyde Park barber shop now tourist mecca

| 4 Comments


President-elect Barack Obama usually makes regular visits to the Hyde Park Hair Salon for trims. But the salon has become a "tourist mecca" so on Tuesday, Obama's barber traveled to the Regents Park apartment of Obama pal Mike Signator to give the next president a haircut. Obama arrived at the apartment after working at his Chicago transition headquarters at the Kluczynski Federal Building in the Loop. (The main transition offices are in downtown Washington.)

Obama staff said the barber came to Obama because the shop has become a "tourist mecca" with people stopping by to get a glimpse of Obama, creating a security concern.

YOU DIDN'T THINK THE SECRET SERVICE WOULD LET
EVERYONE IN THE BARBERSHOP WHEN HE WAS GETTING
HIS HAIRCUT DID YOU!
PRESIDENT ELECT OBAMA IS A STANDUP PERSON, HE
WAS GETTING HIS HAIR CUT THERE WHEN NO ONE KNEW
WHO HE WAS, AND HE REMAINS TRUE TO HIS BARBER,
THAT'S THE BARACK I KNOW AND RESPECT!
AMERICA HE IS THE RIGHT PERSON TO HELP US GET
THE TRAIN BACK ON THE TRACK AND MAKE IT MOVE!

Lynn Sweet, Mary Mitchell, Mike Signator, Mark Brown and the President Elect's barber, would you please let the future President know " YES WE CAN!!! BRING DOWN THE MURDER RATE IN CHICAGO"

I know he is busy all I will need is his blessing and support from his administration.

This is a matter of publc safety, ask him to please have someone call me from his staff, he knows me and he knows what I can do with his support on this issue, and it wouldn't be the first time that I was asked to speak to a President on issues of this magnitude.

I meet with former President Clinton Jan. 1994 in the Oval Office of the White House.

Have him call me too! I have a few questions I'd like to ask him as well. I want to know what was going on in his mind when he came out on the Ellen Show and wiggled his cute butt around for all of the ladies at home to see. All the housewived are talking about Obama "heartthrob" Drama. This man is causing all kinds of household arguments across the county because he's so cute and sweet. We all want to make him a sweet potato pie for this Thanksgiving. Have someone in his staff call my office too, so that I can post an address on my site(www.momsadvantage.com) to offer SWEET POTATO PIES! We love Obama too, so "wally gator" wait in line!

please tell me who is the new white house barber?
