White House Press Secretary Jay Carney today said he plans to watch the Obama campaign film “The Road We’ve Traveled” over and over again.
“I had a chance to see it,” he told reporters traveling with him aboard Air Force One to the first of five fundraisers President Obama will hold today in Chicago and Atlanta. “I thought it was superb. I’ll probably watch it many times. I hope you will too.”
The film is an unadulterated litany of praise for Obama. Carney said he did not know if Obama himself had seen it, though he speculated that he probably has.
Carney insisted that the president would be carrying out his official duties today, despite a full day of raising money.
“The president of the United States is president of the United State 24 hours a day, including when he calls foreign leaders in the very early hours of the morning, and on weekends, and on any given day of the week,” he said.
