Where Is Obama? He Is Out Fundraising

From CNN’s Political Ticker:

President main attraction at fourth party event this month

Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama headlines a Democratic party event Wednesday night [last night], the second time this week and fourth time this month he’s been the main attraction at a party gathering.

The official White House schedule says that the president delivers remarks at a Democratic National Committee event at a hotel in the nation’s capital.

At last the mystery is solved. Four ‘party events’ so far this month, and the month is barely half over. But after all, the ‘leader of the free world’ has his priorities.

(As an aside, what is up with the verb tenses in the sentences above? Isn’t grammar taught in journalism schools anymore?)

A source with knowledge of the gathering tells CNN that Obama will speak to members of the DNC’s national advisory board and national finance committee.

Our leader knows exactly who the people are that he has to reassure and inspire in these troubled times.

Monday night the president attended another DNC event in Washington, meeting with approximately 50 supporters and potential supporters of his 2012 re-election bid. Obama raised a record breaking $750 million dollars in his 2008 campaign for president and could bring in up to $1 billion for his re-election bid

That would be a pretty small take after the nearly $800 billion spent on his (campaign) ‘stimulus’ package.

But that might be all that they will be willing to admit to.

    This is an epic statement on the degree of rot and corruption in Washington D.C. A new low benchmark for all time. No doubt it will continue south, as the GOP continues its epic fail too. We’re in deep effluvium until great leadership steps forward.

      It has worried me for some time now that the GOP just doesn’t get it. And as Rush mentioned yesterday, my exact fear of the the senior GOP “leadership” has come to pass where they just tell the freshmen tea-party members to shut up. The excuse, of course, is that they have some nerve telling “us” what to do…when they were elected for just that reason. So the GOP is, in essence, behaving exactly like the DNP by saying, “I don’t care what the voters want, you will do as we say because we’re in charge.

      It’s what I’ve witnessed over and over again in any hierarchical structure of humans. “pay your dues”, “rookie”, “old head”, etc. That ridiculous “fraternal order” of things. Something we seemed to condemn the British for yet perpetuate it in exactly the same fashion. Gotta go to the right parties, wear the right clothes, talk the right way, etc. It all makes me sick. That may be the nature of politics but it sure doesn’t get anything accomplished except stratifying the status-quo.

    …..”what is up with the verb tenses in the sentences above? Isn’t grammar taught in journalism schools anymore?…….”

    Such a question presumes that what we’re reading is journalism, and that these morons even went to school.

    On the other hand, it argues strongly that these “journalists” are the product of our public school system. My bad.

    No wonder I’m conflicted

    It’s comforting to know there is something Dear Leader is good at.

    this flagrant breach of flag etiquette??

    THIS IS WHY I don’t contribute anything to politicians. –they do nothing but harm, then go out to campaign after a year or so making things worse. They have no shame or soul it seems.

    OBAMA doing nothing, is a blessing. (sometimes) The pourous border? –does nothing, (bad)
    Does nothing but harm economy? (bad) BUT, does not want to do anything with Libya. (good) Seems to take no notice of international affairs–(good).

    He has cashed-out. Narcississtic children, who are only childs, fatherless, pampered, made to be conceited, over-praised—THEY HIDE IN EMBARRASSMENT AND ANGER when they are rejected, as in the November elections. They guy has cashed out. He is being criticised left and right for everything he does…..so he does nothing.
    (sometimes that’s a good thing, do you want a meddeling / activist Obama, or a willy-nilly do nothing Obama?)
    –Go easy on the guy once in a while.

    He has done this since he ascended into pillaging America.
    I like it better when he’s on vacation and out of my country!
