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!
