Scheduled fund raisers number 12 and 13 for the month. Seventeen work days, 13 fund raisers, or 1 for every 1.3 work days.

Jim February 23, 2012 at 5:09 am

At this rate, the number of fundraisers is going to catch up to and pass the number of golf outings…

langley barfly February 23, 2012 at 6:43 am

Obama’s not going to the Miami Heat-NY Knicks game…?

I can see the narcissist Obama showing up at the game just to get attention/media coverage…

ol gator February 23, 2012 at 7:32 am

Our little campaign critter is neck deep in $$$ fever bowing before the money god.. When money is your god, they’ll never be enough !

Just2old February 23, 2012 at 7:47 am

U of Miani….and we’ll hear how it’s everyone else’s fault that gas prices are going through the roof….and then go drink, party, and raise some cash from the rich and stupid.

Star February 23, 2012 at 10:40 am

Oh, yeah–Syria, Iran, Hormuz, bad refiner villains, drooling mean oil companies, commodities markets, Bush of course, Jimmy Carter maybe, Joe at your gas station, who knows–hardly even need to listen to the blab-a-thon. Certainly and for sure, a wise leader with a grasp of complex world markets could do nothing.

Russell February 23, 2012 at 7:47 am

What you want to bet that while Barry is at the Industrial Assessment Center, he will mention how important it is that we spend even more tax $$$ propping up and paying back his doners via the green agenda.
Will we hear why gasoline is spiking and going up possibly to record levels? Nope.

Where’s Mooch?

GWShrub February 23, 2012 at 11:20 am

She’s probably going to take AF2 later & meet him in Orlando.

Mike C February 23, 2012 at 8:15 am

don’t expect an early briefing tommorow morning.

Anonna February 23, 2012 at 8:25 am

I thought Mommy Antoinette forced him to have dinner every night at 6 pm with the Princesses.

Car in February 23, 2012 at 8:29 am

I see we’re picking up the tab for this one too. Quick tour of some business, then he’s off to collect cash.

DeniseVB February 23, 2012 at 8:48 am

Doesn’t his crack fundraising team know how to throw together a golf tournament at one of the Florida locales? He’d like that for a change, especially in the nice weather.

Of course we’d whine about it, but that’s what we’re here for :D

Another fake speech in front of a heavily lib college crowd as an excuse to shovel more money in the war chest. Whine, whine…..

Shofar February 23, 2012 at 11:13 am

“[H]is crack fundraising team” so that’s what they’ve been smoking in the WH. And here I thought it was just plain cigarettes.

Robin H February 23, 2012 at 9:09 am

Not even a morning breifing today? When was the last time he spoke with his cabinet? When was the last time he had a real press conference?

I guess tomorrow’s schedule will be blank to make up for tonight’s late night? What a putz.

Car in February 23, 2012 at 9:27 am

I see a lunch with Biden on tomorrow’s schedule. Those are always good empty-day fillers.

Car in February 23, 2012 at 9:28 am

And, I think it’s been over a 100 days since his last press conference. Politico has a tally.

langley barfly February 23, 2012 at 11:32 am

…and the sycophant media allows Obama to go 100+ days with out a “press conference”

GWShrub February 23, 2012 at 11:07 am

So……the “Grifter-In-Chief” is spending more of OUR money jetting off to Florida. WHY? To deliver some remarks? Oh, oh, of course. He MUST tour the Industrial Assessment Center. Why? And then he raises some money for himself before he spends more or OUR money & jets off to Orlando so he can raise some more money for himself. Then he comes back to DC. Sounds like a needless trip to me, at OUR expense, while he pockets the cash. Like I said, “GRIFTER-IN-CHIEF”.

Star February 23, 2012 at 12:26 pm

You make a good point–why tour these plants and places–to make Americans go there on vacation? No gas! Hello? I guess just for the air time for him him him. Another chance to bound around–fake smile–put on goggles…

Star February 23, 2012 at 12:27 pm

What the HECK is an Industrial Assessment Center anyhow–a place where they go: Yup, that’s a factory?

Star February 23, 2012 at 12:37 pm

I will then, said the Little Red Hen… so this is what an IAC is…
they perform in-depth evaluations of a facility by engineering faculty with upper class and graduate students from a participating university in the area. The IAC team performs a thorough examination of potential savings from:

•energy efficiency improvements
•waste minimization and pollution prevention
•productivity improvement
The IAC team conducts a remote survey of the plant, followed by a one or two-day site visit to take engineering measurements. The team performs a detailed process analysis to generate specific recommendations with estimates of costs, performance, and payback times. Within 60 days, the plant receives a confidential report detailing the analysis, findings, and recommendations. In two to six months, the IAC team calls the plant manager to verify what recommendations will be implemented.

As a result of performing these assessments, upper class and graduate engineering students receive unique hands-on assessment training and gain knowledge of industrial process systems, plant systems, and energy systems, making them highly attractive to employers.The IAC program provides industry with a workforce of energy engineers with real-world training who will contribute to improving industrial efficiency throughout their careers.

Universities apply to host an IAC and receive DOE funding to provide assessments. Periodically, universities may submit an application in response to a funding opportunity announcement and are selected based on the merits of their applications. See the DOE press release announcing the current 24 schools. More than $30 million is expected to be available to IACs from 2012-2016. The IAC program [formerly the Energy Analysis and Diagnostic Center (EADC) program] has offered assessments for over thirty years, beginning with 4 schools in 1976. Learn more about financial opportunities.

I suppose a CYNICAL person (where can we find one?) would say this gets the DOE up in your business…

Susan February 23, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Ugh…it’s just another taxpayer supported racket. Crony capitalism at it’s finest. Many unfortunate parents or working students have to pay outrageous tuition rates, while these big colleges always seem to have enough pocket change to donate to Washington so they can keep that old “iron triangle” Reagan talked about chugging along.

Just2old February 23, 2012 at 4:47 pm

This is nothing more than community organizing on a higher scale…. September 5, 2014 at 9:54 am

Thanks for every other great post. Where else could
anybody get that type of information in such an ideal means of writing?
I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am on the
search for such info.
