As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Schedule || Saturday, August 18, 2012

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

  1. 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?

    • …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…

      • 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 :)

  2. 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.

  3. ‘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”

  4. 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.

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

      “Live comatose or die”

      • 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)

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    • 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

        • 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!
