Obama Walks Into A Fudge Shop, His Arrival Predicted By Cashier

Posted: Updated:

After speaking in Mansfield, Ohio, President Barack Obama walked into the Squirrel's Den, a local fudge shop, where he was greeted by a cashier who said she saw him coming.

"I actually had a dream about you coming in here," said Lia Brunetti, a 19-year-old University of Pittsburgh student, according to a White House pool report.

"Did you? You see that?" Obama said.

"I'm like, you are literally making my dream come true," Brunetti said.

"You are psychic," said Obama.

"Maybe I can market myself like that, I can pay for school," she said.

The owner, LaDonna Secrist, later squeezed some fudge onto Obama's finger and he ate it.

"That's some amazing chocolate right there," he said. "In case you're wondering, that's premium chocolate. It tastes great."

The stop was one of several the president made in Ohio Wednesday. Earlier in the day, he seized on a nonpartisan analysis of Mitt Romney's tax plan by the Tax Policy Center showing that the rich would receive most of the benefits from it.

"He's not asking you to contribute more to pay down the deficit. He's not asking you to pay more to invest in our children's education or rebuild our roads or put more folks back to work. He's asking you to pay more so that people like him can get a big tax cut," Obama said.
