Heh: Obama Gets Booed at Own Fundraiser

At a fundraiser Monday night in Boston, Massachusetts, President Obama was booed by supporters when he jokingly thanked the Fenway Faithful for trading third baseman and World Series champion Kevin Youkulis to the Chicago White Sox.   Yikes, Mr. President.

 

On a more serious note, though, does it surprise you to learn President Obama will appear at four fundraisers today in Atlanta and Miami after he attended three yesterday in Massachusetts? That's seven fundraisers in 48 hours! Incredible. Of course, I recognize it’s an election year and therefore it’s tacitly accepted incumbent presidents will spend long hours on the campaign trail. This is to be expected. But if President Obama is literally spending all of his time campaigning and fundraising (which, I think, seems to be the case) how does he find the time, say, to meet with lawmakers about the impending debt crisis or the escalating unemployment rate? The point is Obama & Co. has given up on governing until after the election.  And, sure, while one can certainly charge Mitt Romney with overzealous campaigning, too, at least he’s not President of the United States.

Obama & Co do not want to create any debatable controversy during campaign season. To fall on their same talking points about legislation now would be a major drawback to their campaign.
