Four dead Americans are only bumps on the campaign trail

Two weeks after the Benghazi massacre, the only visible change to President Obama's weekly campaign schedule is the inclusion of 4 daily briefings.  Yet, in the past 7 days, the Obama campaign team attended 14 different campaign/fundraising events. However, the President was obligated to meet with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton once in order to make sure that they continue to apologize to the Muslim world and pretend that a the murders of our citizens were carried out in response to an offensive video.

Obama's and Clinton's behavior are indicative to children trying to appease a schoolyard bully.

Besides apologizing and campaigning, Mr. Obama relaxed in the friendly environment of The View. He did speak at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, but could not find the time to meet with other dignitaries.

The economy is still in shambles and unemployment continues to soar. Yet the President has ignored these issues.

Mr. Obama described the deaths of our Ambassador and security personnel as merely bumps on the road. And, he brushed off the concerns of Israel as only noise, an unwanted distraction.

One must ask: Why would any right minded American re-elect this politician who has boldly ignored his sworn obligation to serve and protect this country but has favored the revolting terrorists in the North African and Arab regions instead?

Even the murder of 4 Americans cannot stop President Obama's fundraising events

Why should Americans work if the President refuses to work either?

After we published last week's post, America learned of the violence in the Middle East. Four Americans, including 1 Ambassador, was killed in Libya. The Egyptian Embassy was overrun and the American Flag torn down and burned. More violence and marches took place in the days to follow, and anti-American sentiment was expressed across North Africa, England, Australia, and more.

Yet through it all, our honorable President Obama, Vice President, and First Lady pressed ahead the Obama re-election bid by attending campaign fundraisers in Colorado, Ohio, District of Columbia, Iowa, Virginia, and New York City. Together, they attended 16 separate events. Mr. Obama led the team with 8 fundraisers, Mr. Biden with 5, and Mrs. Obama with 3.

However, because much attention was placed on the White House during this week, Mr. Obama managed to attend 3 daily briefings. Assuming each lasted approximately 30 minutes, the President dedicated 1 1/2 hours of the week to national security.  To help ignore the Mid East violence, Mr. Obama and team blamed the uprisings on the trailer of a film. Yes, the film was responsible for the death of our fellow Americans, not the failure to secure our soil in foreign lands and protect those who are representing us. Note however, the President failed to meet with any of his senior advisers this week either.

During this time, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was found to have violated the Hatch Act. Under the rules of punishment, the President must decide on her punishment. To date, President Obama has ignored his duty to uphold the law.

In addition to fundraising, President Obama hosted three groups of athletes to the White House this week. Last Friday, he welcomed the 2012 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic teams, and today he's receiving the WNBA Champions, the Minnesota Lynx.

Because President Obama's schedule was completely full with campaign related events, Mr. Obama declined to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week.

However, he remains completely focused on his re-election, and is therefore appearing on the David Letterman Show this afternoon, and attending 2 gala fundraisers. Most important is that of Jay-Z and Beyonce which will be held at the 40/40 Club. Aside from the guests, a 350 bottle champagne tower will be a primary focal point. This floor to ceiling display of gold bottles will be serving the $800 per bottle bubbly. (The champagne alone will cost $280,000).

And now we know why the Obama's want us to remain in the middle class!

The following is a summary of the President's official schedule during the week of Wednesday September 12 through Tuesday September 18, 2012.

Tuesday, September 18, 2012
  • President Obama receives a daily briefing at 10:15 AM. At 1:10PM, he greets the WNBA Champion Minnesota Lynx at the White House. Then, he flies to New York City where he will first sit for an interview with David Letterman. Afterward, he will attend 2 fundraisers, one with Jay-Z and Beyonce.

One DNC Convention and Two Hugs, How Cozy!

After sitting in on 1 obligatory daily briefing, President Obama was free to spend the week campaigning. First, however, he had to practice the acceptance speech that he would give at the Democratic National Convention.  Once that speech was given, the Obama's and Biden's took to the skies on our Air Force planes and hit the swing Sates.  Together, they left Charlotte NC and the four flew to New Hampshire. After attending a campaign event there, they boarded the plane again and flew to Iowa where they made another grand campaign appearance at the University of Iowa. 

But, one day was enough. So at the end of Friday, Mr. Obama flew to Florida and spent 2 days attending 4 campaign events in that State. Nothing has been written about Michelle Obama or Jill Biden, so we can only assume that they perhaps flew back to Washington. From different sources, we know that Vice President flew to Columbus Ohio and traveled through that State and mingled with the voters.

Two of the memorial pictures of Mr. Obama and Mr. Biden campaigning over the weekend are shown at right.  From the looks of it, they are really enjoying themselves. After all, who wouldn't want to share hugs with our 2 distinguished leaders?
