I was just presented with the most unique gift I have ever received as president a crocodile insurance, he said. My wife Michelle will be relieved, he said, adding that in US health care reforms crocodile insurance was one thing we left out. Fans and fare for Presidents parade Marni Champion and Fran Anderson show off their NT News hats at Bakers Delight (above), while fans get into the mood of the celebration (below) Pictures: PATRINA MALONE THE FANS By ELLIE TURNER FANS of the President of the United States were yesterday unearthed but not in tunnels and drains scoured by Darwins military. They poked their heads out of coffee shops, pubs and fancy dress stores during his whistlestop visit. The sheer number of antiriot mobs, police and defence personnel lining Mitchell St could have fooled you in to thinking Barack Obama was keen to down a pint at Kitty OSheas pub. Leah Dowler, 22, said security en masse was sensible to repel the threat of Mango Madness. You never know what people are up to in Darwin, she said. Winnellie travel agent and fierce Obama admirer Xana Kamitsis said she wished he had stayed longer. He got down and dirty with the Irish public, she said. With a point blank view of the RAAF Base Darwin gates, Ms Kamitsis shut up shop for the Air Force One arrival. Her clan hailed the cavalcade with glasses of bubbly and chocolate. We waved as they passed, she said. Im wearing lime green pants so I stood out. She said security had checked nearby drains and behind trees for hazards of an international crisis scale. Its like secret squirrel, she said. Most locals took the Presidents visit in their stride. Council ranger Jack Hallely while blocking Knuck ey St said people were cool once they got over the shock that China Town Car Park was packed by 8am. I am mildly excited, he said. The streets were almost empty until Mr Obamas Cadillac, Limo 1, rolled through town under heavy armed guard. Flags and American food dotted the city in tribute (and capitalisation) to the presidential occasion. While Darwin engineer Lloyd Blinco said he couldnt care less that the President had come to Darwin, a weakness for hotdogs drew him to the American special at Coffee Nut. And Warung Bu Amye Timorese-Indonesia restaurant owner Amye Un said she had heard the President loved buntut or oxtail soup. When hes in the White House eating the President food he might miss the soup, she said. I sent him a letter inviting him to dinner, to eat the soup with me, but I dont think he had time. Marilyn Monroe aka Jess Walker Marilyn still has a crush ITS an Obama miracle Marilyn Monroe has been raised from the grave. The Northern Territorys own surfaced Snow Whitestyle yesterday. And boy was she jealous of our Prime Minister. Julia Gillard has been spending so much time with Mr President, she said. I just want to remind him where his roots lay. Ms Monroe aka Jess Walker, 23 said while the President of the United States had changed a bit since her time he was still gorgeous. If he pulled over and wound down his window I suppose I would sing him happy birthday. And I would tell him to kiss me like the old days.
