To mere mortals such as this reporter, it appears as though President Obama’s cup is running over with crisis, both foreign and domestic, both from external sources and self-induced.
Consider the major issues that Obama faces over coffee each morning, as of today:
Looming Obamacare Train Wreck
Amnesty for (at least) 11 million illegal aliens
Gun control and 2nd Amendment
Assuring govenment funding for abortion
Sequestration, budget, out-of-control spending, debt limit
Strained relations with Russia
Keeping Joe Biden off the front page
Second term staffing and appointments
In addition, there are probably at least another half-dozen “under the radar” calamities that Obama is being pelted with, but which the mainstream media continue to ignore.
Despite this bloated “To Do” list, one is shocked to discover that Barack Obama has managed to “squeeze in” three fund raisers for May 13, as reported at the reference:
President Barack Obama will start the week by attending 3 Democratic fundraisers in New York City, according to the White House.
“In the afternoon, the President will travel to New York City. The departure from the South Lawn and the arrival at John F. Kennedy International Airport will be open press,” the president’s schedule reads.
“While in New York City, the President will deliver remarks at two DNC events at private residences and a joint DCCC/DSCC event at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. The DNC events are print pool for remarks only and the DCCC/DSCC event is pooled press.
“In the evening, the President will depart New York City en route Washington, DC. The departure from John F. Kennedy International Airport and the arrival on the South Lawn will be open press.
As the New York Post reported previously, one of the events tonight will be at the home of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. “He won a second term, but Barack Obama isn’t done fund-raising. The president will appear at a cozy reception for fewer than 65 guests with tickets priced at $32,400 per couple at the Manhattan home of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and his designer wife Georgina Chapman on May 13, Page Six has exclusively learned,” reports the Post.”
Ah! The key words are “fund raiser,” an activity which has priority over all other issues of the day, at least in Obama’s mind!
Still, the question persists: How DOES he manage it all, with only a staff of several hundred and three dozen czars at his beckon call?
