  1. How lovely ~ he actually has time to pretend to be doing “real” work since the two fundraisers on tap for tomorrow are just a few blocks from the WH. This time, he’ll only screw up traffic for people in DC, most of whom will vote for him even if he makes them late getting home for dinner. As of tomorrow, there are only 91 days left until he is rejected at the ballot box, and 166 days until he & Michelle Antoinette are evicted from the WH.

  2. 11:00 am Daily Briefing? It must be a late night in tony Westport, CT with the elites. Wouldn’t most people, nevermind presidents, be embarassed to start the work at 11:00 am? By the time he gets the briefing it’s old news.

    It makes me wonder why he sleeps so late. Maybe he’s sleeping it off but probably not from alcohol.

  3. I decided to troll thru the President’s calendars. More people should do that. Pretty soon I got tired and just hit them more or less randomly.

    Usually daily briefing is at 10AM or later
    Occasional meetings with Dems, or foreign dignitaries
    I saw one with the jobs council!!
    Occasional trips (Australia, G-20)

    And then the endless fundraising. I thought I would run out of it eventually, but then I skipped back to Oct 20 something of last year. Right…an evening fundraising.

    How many of these things has he done? 100+ at least..200?

    that’s basically his job for the last year.

    but thanks for collecting these…people should read them

    • I recently looked at his schedule from October 2011 to today looking for events that would be on video that I might have missed.

      I was also appalled by the number of campaign events that dominated his schedule. Flipping through them was even more shocking than the actual numbers.

      Re: Jobs Council

      They have met….

      2-24-11 at the White House
      6-13-11 Durham, NC
      10-11-11 Pittsburg
      1-17-12 White House

      There are two who represents unions. No Chamber of Commerce or prominent economist are on the board. From January to August is a long time to go without a meeting while things are getting worse. . .

      • The Jobs Council was nothing more than another phony front group his minions set up to make it look like he’s doing something to create jobs. Phony to the core…just like the Obamas.

  4. Something I can’t understand: Why does he have Fundraiser #1 at 5:20 and then another, at the very same place, an hour later? He says nothing new so is this just a case of getting more of the faithful in to “see” him and they are more likely to write a larger check? If I was going to contribute to a candidate, I’d mail in a check and be done with it. He’s cheapened his “appearances” by doing it so often its pathetic. Its like Ronald McDonald appearing at a local restaurant but Ronald does not saturate the market!

    • I’m with you Rick. How would you like to be in the first group? Shuffled in for a quick peek then listen to the same ‘ol drivel then shuffled out before you can finish your first beverage. And you donate to the loser? Agree, pathetic.

      • UPDATE: The Secret Service now allows fund raiser attendees to use forks IF (and only IF) they pay an extra $5k for a “fork yourself fee”

        • Can you imagine if a Republican POTUS had asked the organizers to pick up forks from a Hispanic dinner before he spoke? The outrage would still be front-page news around the country.

  5. “4:15 pm || Meets with the White House Rural Council to discuss ongoing efforts in response to the drought”

    Here’s your chance, Barry. Show us what you’re made of. Make it rain.

  6. Can someone tell me who is in charge of the country when Obama is off helicoptering raising $ and Biden is on vacation in Delaware? Seriously, I can think of any number of times when both bozos are off having fun. What if that red phone rings? Does Maxwell Smart answer his shoe in their absence?

    • Probably just 6 or 8 limos to drive Czippy the one block from the WH (which is at 16th St & Pennsylvania Avenue) over to 15th Street.
