Toker-in-Chief: Gotta Have a Break


Obama at the presser:

“We are going to need to start having to cancel things and stay here until we get it done,” the president said.

“They’re in one week, out one week, then saying ‘Obama’s got to step in.’ You need to be here. You stay here, let’s get it done.”

Obama goes to PA for two different fundraisers yesterday:

PHILADEPHIA – President Obama served up some political red meat to campaign contributors in Philly tonight, bashing his Republican challengers while picking up more than a million dollars for his campaign and the Democratic party.

“This campaign is at its early stages, I’ve got a day job, I’ve got other things to do,” Obama told about 800 supporters at a downtown hotel ballroom. “But while I’m working there will be candidates parading around the country. And they’re gonna do what they do which is they’re gonna attack here in Philadelphia, they’re gonna attack. They won’t have a plan but they’re going to attack.”

But the American people, Obama insisted, didn’t want to hear the back-and-forth of politics “as we’ve come to know it.”

“They are less interested in hearing us exchange insults about the past, they want us to exchange ideas about the future,” he said. “That’s the contest I’m looking forward to because I know that’s the contest that America needs and, by the way, that’s the contest that we will win.”

[ed: Srsly? Still hoping and changing people? Good grief.]

Today? Is today the day he will finally at least make an attempt to live up to his rhetoric? Nah. Try again tomorrow.

WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama will be taking a break for the Independence Day holiday weekend.

He’ll travel to Camp David in western Maryland Friday afternoon, following some morning meetings.

Gotta make my noon tee time, the links are calling.

And the NRSC sends one Out of the Ballpark:

This is enough to make me donate. Watch it and prepare to be pleased. To paraphrase ‘Chelle, for the first time in my life, I’m proud of my party. A little bit. Depending on the CutCapBalance deal.

I was born in Saginaw, Michigan, and I grew up in a house on Saginaw Bay. My daddy was a poor, hardworking Saginaw fisherman. Too many times he came home with too little pay.

Naw, not really, but it sounds more interesting than the real bio, so there you are.

I surely admire that you could tolerate watching these clips in order to put this post together. When I listen to such absolute, outright lying by this guy, well, it makes me cringe. Is he so delusional that he thinks people can’t see right through him? His own party, which obviously has no moral compass, tolerates this? His clipped, talking to first graders approach is going to come back to haunt him someday.

He gives golf a bad name.
