Another week of little to no work and some photo ops.

Of course there’s a road trip, to PA this time and Biden gets to tag along. Hmm, anyone else think there will be a couple of fundraisers after that pointless event on Wednesday?

Schedule for the Week of April 14, 2014

On Monday, the President will host an Easter Prayer Breakfast at the White House.

On Tuesday, the President and the First Lady will mark the beginning of Passover with a Seder at the White House with friends and staff.

On Wednesday, President Obama and Vice President Biden will travel to Leetsdale, Pennsylvania for an event on the economy. Further details on the President and Vice President’s travel to Pennsylvania will be made available in the coming days.

On Thursday, the President will welcome the Wounded Warrior Project’s Soldier Ride to the White House in celebration of the eighth annual Soldier Ride. A cycling event to help Wounded Warriors restore their physical and emotional well-being, the Soldier Ride also raises awareness of our nation’s Wounded Warriors who battle the physical and psychological damages of war.

On Friday, the President will meet with the National Commander and Executive Director of the American Legion. Later, he will welcome the United States Naval Academy Football Team to the White House to present them with the 2013 Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy.

Where do they list all the fundraiser. You know Pennslvania trip will not pass without at least one.

SnarkEsq. April 14, 2014 at 1:39 am

Grace, I have no idea where, or if, the fundraisers are listed. All I know is that very rarely does a week go by without at least one or two fundraisers on the official schedule. Aldo, they sometimes have fundraisers that are not on the schedule, like the night of the Ft. Hood shooting suddenly he was making a statement from a fundraiser that wasn’t even on his schedule.

Also, going by the wording on this weekly schedule, it looks like they’ll be adding some more info for Wednesday. That would be on Tuesday night when the scedule comes out for the next day. I’ve noticed that they do that quite a bit, which makes it seem like they do not want to give too much advance notice of some fundraiser(s).

Steve April 14, 2014 at 12:29 pm

Ask the President why the IRS raised the thresh-hold on Medical expenses this tax year from 7.5% to 10% of adjusted income (you now have to exceed 10% of your adjusted gross income in order to write off the first dollar of medical expenses). If this President were really for building the Middle Class then why would his administration reduce the deductability for medical expenses especially during a year of unprecedented medical insurance costs and medical costs increases. This President is either incompetent, a liar or both.

srdem65 April 14, 2014 at 1:15 am

What a shocker! I was raised in Leetsdale, PA, went to school there and my parents lived there until their passing some years ago.
I’m stunned. A little old PA town with about 2,500 people.

SnarkEsq. April 14, 2014 at 1:32 am

Interesting. So, what company or school will BHO be visiting there just to make some remarks about the economy (yet again)? It’s always either a school or a factory or something. What’s the closest big city where there might be a fundraiser or two?

Sadie April 14, 2014 at 4:44 am

Pittsburgh, it’s about 20 miles away for fundraising.

SnarkEsq. April 14, 2014 at 12:59 pm

Oh, so that must be it. Thanks.

gracepmc April 14, 2014 at 8:17 am

I looked it up. My folks are immigrants and they settled in Ambridge for the steel works. I wasn’t raised there but go back for family events. You are right srdem65 — a very odd place to visit for sure.

rawheadrex April 13, 2014 at 11:52 pm

60 Minutes did a profile of Pope Francis I and spent more time with BHO and his assessment of the Pontiff than was necessary, but the Pope does have more important matters than a faded news magazine and a rapidly fading president-by-accident and probably would not have considered an interview.

Star April 14, 2014 at 10:35 am

I thought that, too, Raw! When the pres came on, I went to my backup channel, checked, he was still rambling, backup, checked, rambling—good grief, it was not about him!,

Island Girl April 14, 2014 at 12:30 am

What’s he praying about?

gracepmc April 14, 2014 at 12:55 am

If you are talking about Obama I think it’s safe to say that he is not praying at any Christian or Jewish event.

ImNoDhimmi April 14, 2014 at 8:11 am

I don’t know why he even bothers to show up.

Artcat April 14, 2014 at 8:43 am

He’s not showing up for the prayer part, he’s showing up for the breakfast part.

Steve April 14, 2014 at 12:37 pm

I figured that Black Liberation Theology followers didn’t pray. Which occurred just after Jeremiah Wright’s “G D America” speech. These people don’t need to pray, they are destined to burn in Hell.

Steve April 14, 2014 at 12:40 pm

Remember, Obama was a member of Jeremiah Wright’s congregation for 20 years. 20 YEARS!!!!!

gracepmc April 14, 2014 at 12:54 am

I saw a good suggestion elsewhere concerning the new IRS rule — resurrecting something in the 08 Farm Bill that allows them to go after the family survivors for old debt . The suggestion was that perhaps we could go after Pelosi, Reid, and Obama heirs for our share of the debt that they have put us all in.

BTW, anybody know the yahoo that included that in the Farm Bill?

Sadie April 14, 2014 at 4:50 am

I think the filial debt collection was tucked into the 2011 Farm Bill. Leave it to the IRS to undo the old saw, “you can’t get blood from a stone.”

Woman Loses Tax Refund Over 37 Year Old Debt to Social Security

gracepmc April 14, 2014 at 8:32 am

Sadie, Here is part of a comment from Vic at AOS on this
************
And finally I have been trying to track down this BS of the Obamanites garnisheeing tax refunds based on ancient debts of parents or other ancestors. I have found quite a bit of information. This program has been going now for 3 years and it is worse than you think. And it is ILLEGAL as I expected.

First here is a link to an article giving a good description. One thing that is amazing is that nobody in any branch of government will take credit for this POS.

http://tinyurl.com/nmogwbs

That article links to the source of the crap being the 2008 Farm Bill that Bush vetoed and the Congress overrode.

http://tinyurl.com/py7ukre
**************

As for me, this is just one more gansta’ move from the Chicago Gang — whatever they can find to screw the American people they will. It is particularly irritating that so far no one has found out which CongressCritter is responsible for this. Whoever it is should be questioned.

The government really is mammoth and increasingly legislation is just a sewer for things like this.

Sadie April 14, 2014 at 11:14 am

grace, thanks bunches for links and efforts. As always, your commentary is wonderful and spot on.

I’d suggest draining the sewer, but Nancy, Harry and pals would refill it as we slept with some all-night gathering of the inbreeds and ingrates.

Star April 14, 2014 at 12:42 pm

When Mom died, B of A said her trust said nothing about paying final medical expenses and since adult children are not liable for parents’ bills, to tell the collectors there was no estate, no probate. We did. They tried but finally gave up.

Carriem April 14, 2014 at 7:23 am

That must be some breakfast if that’s all he’s doing today.

CAR April 14, 2014 at 8:51 am

Chuckle. :-)

Lee April 14, 2014 at 7:40 am

There is not even a moment listed for discussion of what is happening in Ukraine.

DeniseVB April 14, 2014 at 8:07 am

The joke going around is that he’s trying to one up Putin by invading Nevada :D

gracepmc April 14, 2014 at 8:18 am

HA!

Lee April 14, 2014 at 8:25 am

They went to the wrong place. lol
They went with snipers to protect GRASS!
If we have so much trouble dealing with THE LIST of things that keep happening here, Just imagine how the world is having a hard time trying to keep up.
BREAKFAST AREA (Some where else in the world) Honey did read this: America snipers and gunman are attacking ranchers. They are so tough: They even attacked cows, by separting the calfs. sarc

So sad April 14, 2014 at 3:41 pm

They weren’t “separated” they ran the heavily pregnant mothers until they aborted and had to kill dying livestock to put them out of their misery!!!!!!! Where does it stop? Whom ever is responsible for this should be named photographed and sent to jail this is beyond anything I have ever heard about in this country!!!!

CAR April 14, 2014 at 8:53 am

BO talks “red line,” but he’s a sissy when the going gets tough.

Girly1 April 14, 2014 at 8:02 am

An Easter Prayer Breakfast….after a week of race-hustling from Austin to NYC. It gives me indigestion….

Steve April 14, 2014 at 12:47 pm

Ha, he even embraced Al “the snitch” Sharpton. That old, fat race baiting drug dealer. Good Lord help us real Americans.

Danceswithtruth April 14, 2014 at 8:03 am

I take it Dr. Carson won’t be in attendance?

anneinarkansas April 14, 2014 at 8:26 am

He spoke recently in Arkansas at Harding College. Several of my friends went to hear him and were so impressed. One of my friend’s daughter and husband (he is a radiologist and she is an RN) knew and worked with him when the husband was a resident at Johns Hopkins about 25 years….they think he is fantastic and feel so honored to have worked with him.
No, he will not be in attendance.

anneinarkansas April 14, 2014 at 8:27 am

….years ago….sorry.

DeniseVB April 14, 2014 at 8:06 am

Skimming the newsies this a.m. noticed some whining about Obama keeps skipping national security meetings. Wouldn’t those be on his schedule if he were attending them ? Would be nice to know :)

Also, while he had 200 federal agents surround a private citizen’s ranch to collect 1.1 million dollars (?) he was attending his buddy Sharpton’s racist event in NYC. Sharpton owes 1.9 million(?) in back taxes.

Obama’s really a putz, isn’t he ?

CiscoKid April 14, 2014 at 9:17 am

It’s Obama thats giving putz’s a bad rep

Marcus April 14, 2014 at 10:01 am

LOL.. he is, indeed. He’s the most disengaged POTUS, the strangest POTUS, the most peculiar, dangerous, untethered, spoiled brat POTUS in history. He’s beyond incompetent. He rules by coverup. He’s destructive, arrogant, vindictive, rogue-like, neurotic. He’s certainly the most leftist radicalized POTUS we’ve ever had–including Wilson and FDR. There. I said it. Now I can have a good day.

CiscoKid April 14, 2014 at 12:52 pm

You mean a Democrat.

Marcus April 14, 2014 at 3:52 pm

Lol…..perfect,

Girly1 April 14, 2014 at 1:01 pm

Thanks for that…Marcus. You made my day, too!

Marcus April 14, 2014 at 3:58 pm

We anxiously await the day when we can echo the words Gerald Ford said all those years ago: “At long last, our national nightmare is over.” Should happen in Jan 2016.

Marcus April 14, 2014 at 4:02 pm

Whoops—-Jan 2017. Wishful thinking.

Julie Brueckheimer April 14, 2014 at 10:27 am

A really big LOL to whoever came up with that one.

anneinarkansas April 14, 2014 at 8:19 am

No Jay Jay today? He may be worried about questions on that magazine “puff” story about his home and family…the photo-shopped library with several identical copies of War and Peace and several others, a reverse photo to make it look like a large library.
And then Russian propaganda posters to decorate his kitchen.
How Putin must love it!!!!! LOL

Lee April 14, 2014 at 8:32 am

I still don’t understand those pictures being in the kitchen as decoration. I think that should be the first question when he comes back to the Press Room.
One of the reporters can say: My wife has the hardest time finding new decoration to match the current wallpaper, Do you
think those pictures would clash with flowered wallpaper?
Another question: Can you suggest any other terrible person in history that I can hang in my kitchen?

Girly1 April 14, 2014 at 9:11 am

Also, he might have to explain why CIA Director Brennan was dispatched to Kiev under an assumed name for secret mtgs. over the week-end. Violence is escalating – hmmm.

Steve April 14, 2014 at 12:53 pm

“Tell Vlatimere that after the election, I can be more flexible”.

Marcus April 14, 2014 at 10:07 am

As I remember, he was stationed in Moscow when he was with Time Magazine. So I cut him a little slack for having the Soviet posters, etc. Now we know why he keeps feeding WH reporters so much borscht.

Owen_Kellogg April 14, 2014 at 8:23 am

The one-hour workday does not surprise me. The fact that his workday actually begins before 10 am does surprise me.

DeniseVB April 14, 2014 at 8:53 am

As Jay keeps reminding us, Obama is President 24/7 so HE is ALWAYS working. (wink, wink)

Lee April 14, 2014 at 12:59 pm

That is not so. Look what happened in Benghazi.

DeniseVB April 14, 2014 at 9:05 am

Just wondering if the Obamas are speaking at graduations this year? Or are they still trying to align fundraisers for their speaking schedules?

heh.

Eva April 14, 2014 at 7:54 pm

Such a busy schedule! I don’t know how he does it. No wonder
he needs a vacation every month.
