So, according to our illustrious leader, while he’s been hard at it putting Biden in charge of negotiations with Congress, he’s also been offing bin Laden:
[Congress is] in one week, they’re out one week. And then they’re saying, Obama has got to step in. You need to be here. Iâ€™ve been here. Iâ€™ve been doing Afghanistan and bin Laden and the Greek crisis. You stay here. Letâ€™s get it done.
Yes, that’s right, not only did he pop in the ol’ Night Vision Contact Lenses and assassinate bin Laden, but he’s also apparently managed to provoke widespread rioting and economic distress in Greece. Don’t ask me why he’s bragging about that, but he is.
According to him, Congress is not working as hard as his 12 and 10 year old daughters. Yes, his oldest daughter is not 13 years old, as he stated, but 12. [JournoCommies interrupt me to say: “Quit it. Don’t be harshing on him like that. You can’t expect the smartest President evah to remember everything can you? Michele Bachman didn’t even know John Wayne wasn’t born in Waterloo, IA. Let’s talk about that.”]
But let me tell you about these
salt sand mines he’s been working in.
Obama has played 75 rounds of golf so far in his Presidency. 75.
He typically plays the course at Andrews Air Force Base, on the golf course we designed for our servicemen, and generally on Saturday, but sometimes both Saturday and Sunday. You don’t suppose any of our soldiers would like a shot at the course on a Saturday, do you? Not that their illustrious Toker-in-Chief cares. Let them eat cake.
He’s also managed to squeeze in 30 separate fundraisers (not counting his inside-the-White-House shakedowns) versus three President Bush had held by the same point in his Presidency. Following this grueling schedule, he’s planning another vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. Life is tough and then you die.
Yet when he droned on and on and on about the lack of a budget agreement, he blamed Congress for the lack. It’s a miracle he didn’t blame President Bush.
Immediately after the presser blaming Congress for our fiscal problems, he escaped the rat race to honor the winners of the WNBA Championship in a Rose Garden ceremony. No autopen necessary for that.
Does anyone believe that if we were in these same circumstances with a Republican President and a split Congress, the press would stand silently at a press conference and allow the President to spin and deflect the way this one did? No way. It is no wonder the reliability of the press ranks just about even with used car salesmen. None of us believe the pap they shovel.
And when Obama “unexpectedly” loses the election in 2012, the press won’t know what they did wrong. America can see through their smokescreen and we know he’s no wizard. He will be held to account by the American people and there’s no amount of obfuscation by the press that will protect him.
UPDATE: No lie.Â This is what he said yesterday:
â€œWe are going to need to start having to cancel things and stay here until we get it done.â€
President Obama will head to Philadelphia for two events organized by the Democratic National Committee Thursday, the same day the first major and closely-watched fundraising quarter of the 2012 presidential campaign cycle draws to a close.
The president, joined by Reps Bob Brady and Chaka Fattah and Mayor Michael Nutter, will deliver remarks at a fundraising bash at The Bellevue Hyatt in the afternoon. Ticket prices started at $100 according to two Democratic officials.
The officials said he will then attend a fundraising dinner at the home of Rhonda and David L. Cohen, tickets for which started at $10,000. DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania will attend the evening event.
On a DNC conference call Thursday, former Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell of Pennsylvania said he thinks the events will raise $2.5 million to benefit the Obama Victory Fund, a joint account between the DNC and OVF.
The White House effectively turned down an invitation by Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell for President Barack Obama to visit his members on Capitol Hill on Thursday to discuss raising the debt limit.
White House press secretary Jay Carney, while not directly saying the invitation had been rejected, said Obama did not need to hear Republicans tell him what they would not support.
That, Carney said, was “not a conversation worth having.”
Does that not blow your mind? He cannot lose his job quickly enough for me.
