    As our trusted “insider” at the White House, can you tell us what Mr. Obama does all day, since his posted schedule usually adds up to around two hours?

    Not that most of us would mind a one per center’s $400,000 salary (plus bennies) for a ten hour work week — but surely there must be some evidence of other laser focused work by POTUS.

    • Playrighter, I don’t think its right that we assume he does nothing because its not on his schedule. I’m sure there are a lot of things and work he does behind the scenes and we don’t know about.

      **My issue is what is usually ON the schedule.** Fundraisers in an off year? Concerts? Parties? Hanging with sportstars? Television/Film viewings? Lunch with BIDEN?

      • Scottso:

        I’m not assuming he does nothing — I’m just curious to know how he actually spends his day — and our tax dollars.

        Does he spend the day posing for Souza pix? Practicing campaign (and yes, he IS still campaigning) speeches? Twisting arms? Leaking stories to a compliant press? Strategy sessions with Valerie Jarrett? Hypnotizing J. Carny so he can take press questions without giving any real answers?

        It would be fascinating to see a REAL day in the life of POTUS — as long as it wasn’t completely staged, like so much of what he does.

      You don’t have to be Prezzy to get a good check for no work! You just have to know the right people…

      “The longer the elevator operators push the correct buttons, the more cash they win. The longest-tenured elevator operator has seen his annual salary increase each of the last five years—though non-congressional federal government employee wages are currently frozen—for total earnings of more than $210,000. …

      Through the years, college students hoping to finance their education often filled the positions of elevator operators. Now, elevator operators earn salaries that rival those of recent graduates. In the year ending March 31, 2012, the longest-tenured elevator operator made more than $41,000. That salary was greater than the average starting salaries of 2011 graduates in education, math and sciences, and humanities and social sciences, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers. This elevator operator’s wage fell just a few hundred dollars short of the average starting salary of the 2011 communications graduate. Pushing the correct button hardly requires a college education, but if you know the right people, it can ”

      Sequester? WHAT sequester?!?

    • I think all politicians should be limited to two terms: one in office and one in prison. Detroit and Chicago already do this.

  2. Balance of schedule:dodge Limbaugh, except to find crises to blame on him. Who needs Bush #43? Never let a c(RUSH)is go to waste!

  3. Dictator Obama’s schedule keeps getting lighter and lighter. Is lunch with Crazy Joe Biden so taxing that he has to take the rest of the day off? I smell a golfing outing. Given the explosions of scandals I’ll bet that right now he is juiced to the gills and hiding under the dining table at the Den of Destruction, formerly known as the White House, sucking his thumb, crying for Reggie, and asking Valerie Jarrett what to do.

  4. Plugs is gonna’ do lunch with FCMABBHO?

    Jill would impress the hell out of me if she had a ring with a secret compartment.

  5. Rumor is that junior staffers are filling sandbags to place around the entrances to the WhiteHouse and MrsO’s ladys-in-waiting are placing swag bags on every chair in the room where the press meets.

    The damage control team from Chicago is already at work in the WhiteHouse and MrAxelrod is now in charge of the government.

  7. Flipped by Morning Joe ick and Mika had in a black dress and her demeanor was like attending a wake. Next up tingles probably have to
    talk him down from a ledge.

  8. lunch with biden:

    well, we need to sit back on the new world order thing till we blame everyone else for everything we did and in the process while Americans aren’t looking perhaps we can get a few things passed.


    sure thing. pass the salt. oh, yeah… we need to get busy planning our summer vacations before they come down on that too.
