Obama Schedule || Saturday, August 18, 2012

by Keith Koffler on August 18, 2012, 12:47 pm

Obama is campaigning today in New Hampshire, which is a swing state. It only has four electoral votes, which some people think could be decisive in such a close election.

It’s not clear to me if these events are rallies or fundraisers, since the openness White House doesn’t distinguish and the pooler hasn’t bothered to let us know.

10:00 am || Departs White House
11:35 am || Arrives Manchester, New Hampshire
2:00 pm || Delivers remarks at a campaign event; Windham High School, Windham, New Hampshire
4:35 pm || Delivers remarks at a campaign event; Rochester Commons, Rochester, New Hampshire
6:05 pm || Departs Manchester, New Hampshire
7:45 pm || Arrives White House

All times Eastern

Who is paying the bills for Air Force One, the Obuttma mobile, security, right down to the gas for the entourage on this clownpaign/cash shakedown trip? Every single penny of cost should be paid out of Diktator Obuttma’s clownpaign funds but the reality is all of it will be picked up by you and me, the taxpayers.

“Delivers remarks at a campaign events” “Remarks” is that the new word for lies?

Langley Spook August 18, 2012 at 1:53 pm

…being a US Vet, I feel sorry for the USAF officers & enlisted of the 89th Airlift Wing (“Air Force One”) who, on 24/7/365 notice have to fly Pres. Obama & Mrs. Obama anywhere they want to go…

DeniseVB August 18, 2012 at 6:10 pm

me too :( This President doesn’t give his support staff a break, especially his SS team. Historically, most of our Presidents planned long weekends at Camp David over holiday and summer breaks to give those assisgned to protect them days off with their families.

With MO and BO hurdling themselves to NYC and Hollywood fundraisers, I see no breaks for their staff. Admin, Security and everyone else.

Oh look, Paul Ryan’s Florida FUNDRAISER had to be moved to a bigger venue :)

Bunni August 18, 2012 at 1:21 pm

A high school and a mall, ha! What’s next, the mens room at red lobster.

What a freaking waste of money this bum is. He should be made to pay for ALL of his campaigning from day one, when he overtook the WH with his hate, division, anger and lies. Can’t wait until Nov.

Lizzy August 18, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Well you know Red Lobster is a Michelle Obama approved restaurant.
She leaned on them to fix their menu for the poor fat folks.

Robin H August 18, 2012 at 2:32 pm

Sorry, but us poor fat folks can’t afford to eat out anymore.

Star August 18, 2012 at 4:35 pm

No joke. Anyhow, we have to conserve our strength–come the famine, we will be taking care of the skinnies, instead of being doomed.

Lizzy August 19, 2012 at 3:56 am

No kidding but it’s MO approved like Olive Garden. She may have gotten them to cave on the food but still misses the fact that we can’t
afford to eat out except at those dreaded fast food places!!!!

Susan August 18, 2012 at 4:35 pm

He might want to avoid the Red Lobster in Fairview Heights, Illinois. That restaurant has a problem with ill-mannered patrons beating up on the wait staff.

Just2old August 18, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Gee, I wondered who empowered them? Holder needs to end up in prison where he belongs.

Knothead August 18, 2012 at 10:39 pm

Giggling, you said bum.. Ha

Lisa August 18, 2012 at 1:31 pm

At least he’s not coming here to Ohio:)

srdem65 August 18, 2012 at 1:59 pm

Wait until next week. He’s been there so many times he’s eligible to vote in Ohio.

Lizzy August 18, 2012 at 2:28 pm

Who isn’t?:)

Robin H August 18, 2012 at 2:33 pm

That was funny, Lizzy. Even my 17 year old son thought so. :)

Star August 18, 2012 at 4:37 pm

I have been to Ohio–perfectly reasonable, intelligent people there…why can’t they see this guy for what he is–an irritating rabblerouser and liar? He ISN’T for the middle class–would throw up if someone said HE was middle class.

SaveUsGod August 19, 2012 at 11:44 am

I live in Ohio and I don’t get it. Franly, I don’t get why ANYONE in the entire country would vote for this evil man who is bent on destroying our country!

Lizzy August 19, 2012 at 3:58 am

I really hope the Obama cabal has a poor soul in a basement cubical reading this blog we are wise wonderful and funny:)

SnarkEsq. August 18, 2012 at 3:06 pm

Lisa, I hate to tell you, but Obummer will be in Columbus, OH on Tuesday. I just posted next week’s schedule below.

Lisa August 18, 2012 at 9:57 pm

You had to ruin my day didn’t you??!! lol He came to my town a month or so ago and I wish I was home then. I would have loved to have a sign that said ‘It’s a tax’.
Ohio is full of union people. I know a guy who said he will hold his nose and vote for Obama because Romney is only for the rich.

Langley Spook August 18, 2012 at 1:43 pm

‘rallies VS fundraisers’ = Who cares?
Obama still gets to use/abuse “Air Force One” (at US taxpayer-USAF-Secret Service-etc. expense) as a ’2012 campaign’ prop. Looks the “WH press corps” has become nothing but the “Obama 2012 re-election Media Team”

WKRW August 18, 2012 at 5:54 pm

You mean the WH press corpse…

Star August 18, 2012 at 7:31 pm


Guillermo Grande August 18, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Strange days. How can a state with the motto “Live free or die” even be a swing state let alone allow Obama to come and speak.

Sadie August 18, 2012 at 4:45 pm

Since 1992 NH voted “blue” except for 2000 – if they go blue again, they should change the state motto to:

“Live comatose or die”

Langley Spook August 19, 2012 at 6:50 am

Isnt NH full of rabid Ron Paul ‘libertarians’ who want to break away from the USA?
(heard that on some AM radio show “Free Talk Live” with some obnoxious-arrogant ‘libertarian’ hosts)

Shofar August 18, 2012 at 2:38 pm

He’s actually spending time on a Saturday doing something besides golf or watching TV?

Other than international trips, I really can’t remember Obama having that much scheduled for a Saturday other than golf. You can tell it’s election time. If he wins this year, what will his schedule be like when he runs again in 2016 and 2020? After all he is shooting for the “President for Life” title.

Mr. T. August 18, 2012 at 4:04 pm

No kidding about the “President for Life” thing. Remember his “Julia” ad a few months ago? – he’s president for her entire life!

Sadie August 18, 2012 at 4:47 pm

DNC took note of the R totals for July and sent him out to drum up $.

SnarkEsq. August 18, 2012 at 3:02 pm

He’s probably happy to get away from Moochelle this weekend since they’re supposed to be relaxing on Martha’s Vineyard right now. Based on past years’, they would have left last Thursday (8/16) for at least ten days on Martha’s Vineyard. She’s probably ticked as hell that they couldn’t go this year as usual. That means the kids are probably home from their month away at camp, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she and the kids, and friends, sneak off for a “private family trip” next week. She might throw in an “official” Let’s Move or Joining Forces event so we can pay for the trip somewhere, and then she’ll sneak off on a vacation.

SnarkEsq. August 18, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Next week’s schedule for Obummer, just more light days at the WH, before and after traveling the country campaigning and fundraising:

Schedule for the Week of August 20, 2012

On Monday, the President will attend meetings at the White House.

On Tuesday, the President will travel to Columbus, Ohio and Reno, Nevada for campaign events. The President will remain overnight in Henderson, Nevada.

On Wednesday, the President will travel to Las Vegas, Nevada and New York, New York for campaign events. The President will return to Washington, DC in the evening.

On Thursday and Friday, the President will attend meetings at the White House.

Sadie August 18, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Might as well change the name of the plane to: FU1.

varagas August 18, 2012 at 3:39 pm

I’m impressed. He’s giving up a round of golf to go campaign!!!!!!

Granny Jan August 18, 2012 at 4:37 pm

There’s always church golf on Sunday.

Knothead August 18, 2012 at 10:48 pm

This from Left Field :

And we’re worried about Romney’s tax forms…
Yadlin, who left his IDF post in 2010 and is currently the head of the Institute for National Security Studies, has been a vocal supporter of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who have both hinted that Israel would not leave the fate of Israel in the hands of the US.

Granny Jan/Janice August 18, 2012 at 11:21 pm

The CYA begins:

In the article it says they want small crowds because Obama can better engage with the “folks”. That’s the exact same reason they said he stopped using his teleprompter. We know how that worked. Trusty TOTUS and POTUS travel together forever…at least until November.

Star August 19, 2012 at 12:51 pm

I thought those lame backyard get-togethers were the small things…I think they can’t fill a venue now. But I am still scared…I am so afraid they will trump up some “war” just in time…Syria, Iran, choices are endless…

Girly1 August 18, 2012 at 11:33 pm

He’s being weaned off his teleprompter before the debates – it’s not working. He can’t go a day without the TOTUS and a pack of cigarettes. Rush jokes about his ‘nicotine stained fingers’, but Obama has nicotine-stained vocal cords.

gracepmc August 18, 2012 at 11:54 pm

If ever BO gets back to the WH for kabuki governing and if the whining WH press corps gets an opportunity to do its job then I hope that the press corps get down to business and drills this President about the National Security leaks. The point was made today on the WSJ Review I think that had this been back in the day there would have relentless pursuit of the source of the leaks by the press corps. The ex Seals et al are taking a lot of heat for their attempt to address this vital issue. This President chooses to present his agenda to ET and the press corps and the MSM have chosen to whine about it. Both are derelict in their duty.

SayItAintSO August 19, 2012 at 2:46 am

What is the unemployment percentage this week ? Have yet to see any mention except that unemployment rose in 44 states.

Car in August 19, 2012 at 7:28 am

Only 44? What about the other 13 states?

SayItAintSo August 19, 2012 at 1:01 pm

That’s the point — have not been able to locate any information except that. And no one in any media outlet is saying a word.

Star August 19, 2012 at 8:16 pm

I saw that 44 state thing, even in our increasingly slanted Gannett rag, The Arizona Republic–where IS the Fri unemployment percentage? Hmmmm. I am letting the paper go in Sept–it’s down to a pamphlet, very left-leaning now, the news is AP, the cartoonist is a hack, and for when I am feeling People Magaziney, the horoscope is like a fortune cookie–”You are a good person and will do good things.” Me with no morning paper–after 50 yrs. We shall see how it goes…This is a creepy time in the life of this country, that’s all I can say.

srdem65 August 19, 2012 at 9:46 am

CNN; Stephanie Cutter, dep director for the Obama campaign, defended the Prez’s interviews on ET and People Magazine by saying ‘ a lot of people get their news’ from these outlets. She claims that the Prez answers questions from the media ‘all the time’.
Oh. She also said…..Romney bad….Ryan worse….Obama good…… and of course…..Repubs lie.

Just2old August 19, 2012 at 10:23 am

I think she flunked out of rocket science school.

Star August 19, 2012 at 12:02 pm

I heard someone say–this ain’t rocket surgery. Soooo…here we…folks.

Granny Jan/Janice August 19, 2012 at 10:01 am
Just2old August 19, 2012 at 10:25 am

We’ve got rain moving in….he better hurry!

Granny Jan/Janice August 19, 2012 at 10:57 am

You mean he can’t stop the rain? What good is to be The One if his pwers are so diminished?

Star August 19, 2012 at 12:03 pm

Once that rain becomes tides, though–he’s gangbusters.

Girly1 August 19, 2012 at 10:02 am

He’s pandering to his ‘base’. Let’s just hope there’s more of us than them! Saw a clip of Nancy O’Dell (I think that’s her name) throwing her arms around Obama’s neck while she hugged him and planted a huge smooch on those fabulous lips. Michelle turned her head away, lol.

SaveUsGod August 19, 2012 at 11:40 am

I’m sure he is getting a $3 involuntary “donation” from each person as they come to hear him speak. I would go if he paid ME $3 to hear him speak!

Shofar August 20, 2012 at 2:43 am

This is either fundraisers 10 and 11 or “campaign event” 17 and 18 for August.
