“No We Can’t” Cruise

  The “Yes We Can 2009” cruise to the Obama inauguration has been spiked, due to anemic sales.

  Volunteers in the Lauderhill Obama for President office had dreamed up the cruise from Port Everglades to the Port of Baltimore, after realizing they needed places to stay and a way to get to the Inaugural Festivities on January 20th.

  They leased a cruise ship and gathered a travel-packaging corporate partner, but their efforts finally ran aground late last week.  Joseph Namphy, one of the organizers, said people just didn’t have the $1800 and 8 days to spend on the “Yes We Can” cruise.

  Namphy and the other Lauderhill Obamites have found an alternative for getting to Washington, though.  They’ve rented a bus that will take them to hotel accommodations outside DC.  The cost– about a third of the cruise tab.
