"We received a large volume of calls," said a local police spokesperson following Obama's latest backyard event. "They said this guy seemed to be following them everywhere, on television, on the internet, and now on their back patios."
According to local police, "Most complaints came from people who said they voted for the guy once, but it didn't work out, and now they just want to be left alone."
"It's always the professorial, straight-laced guys that turn creepy," said one officer.
