  1. He’s flying all the way to New York just so he can read a prepared text from a teleprompter? How much fuel will that burn?

    • He does this every single week. It’s such a joke.

      Also, he’s wasting over FIVE HOURS of his day just to deliver 15 to 20 minutes of “remarks”. It could be done from the White House, saving all that time, as well as the money that you mentioned. But, they do this every week to try to fill up his day and make it look like he’s busy doing something. In reality, he’s doing nothing, just like with every other job he’s ever had. He’s just a know-nothing, do-nothing lazy loser.

  2. “Delivers remarks on the economy.” Yet AGAIN, this can be done from the White House. He’s been pulling these stunts with his traveling circus show since January 2009. I don’t believe there’s been one single week in over three years where he didn’t fly somewhere at least once, sometimes twice, to “deliver remarks” on whatever they decide is the issue of the week.

    Now for the good news. Since it’s almost Tuesday, that means:

    26 weeks (182 days) to go until November 6th.

  3. I live about 10 mins from where he’s going to be in Albany. Air Force one comes in low right over my house. My husband wishes he could mow an expletive in the lawn but we’d probably get arrested. Obama is disrupting the whole area for a 15 min speech!

    • And what’s with the yelling? Why’s the guy always gotta bend down and yell into his microphone? My momma taught me not to hate, but…

      • That’s called desperation… I always think he’s trying to channel Elmer Gantry when he starts in on his yelling tirade.

  4. Someone is coming to Detroit today, I think, from the administration. Taking a bow for saving the auto companies.

    And Eric Holder met with the NAACP yesterday, I believe.

  5. SUNY, another safe liberal enclave. He keeps preaching to the choir, doesn’t he? We’re paying for this trip guys, “remarks on the economy” sounds like “official Presidenting business” to me ;)

    If he bashes Republicans and Congress, can we bill him?

  6. I can see how seriously Holder is taking Fast & Furious and the prospect of being held in contempt. The DOJ under Holder is a joke just wait till November
    and all of the voter intimidation starts talk about deaf, dumb and blind. I’m
    surprised the Obama polls don’t already figure in the deceased and fraudulent
    voters. Perhaps they do love to ask Skippy that question.

  7. Obama was not originally scheduled to speak at Nano-Tech. This from Politico:

    “President Obama is heading to Albany tomorrow for a much-anticipated visit highlighting jobs, at which he’s now touring the NanoTech Complex, a center that gets heavy praise in the upstate New York area. It’s a switch from where he was originally heading, GlobalFoundries, a computer chip plant that’s been the subject of a number of profiles, and which employs about 1,300 people.But it’s also a company that is owned by the Abu Dhabi government.”

    Oops.

  8. Keith – How does The Once’s daily schedule compare with those of past Presidents? I am still wondering about the possibility that this just looks as empty because there are other routine duties that are not included in the published schedule.

    I can’t believe that our President does as little as the schedule presents.

    Please — how does Obama’s schedules compare to those of other Presidents whom you’ve observed?

  9. He leaves Albany at 215…..arrives at the white house at 340….but he gives a speech at 230 in Washington? What’s he going to do, jump out of airforce one and land at the dinner? LOL!

    • I think that’s just a typo or mistake. The schedule says it’s at 5:55:

      5:55PM THE PRESIDENT delivers the keynote address at the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies (APAICS) 18th Annual Gala Dinner
