Obama flew brother-in-law and entire OSU team to Washington for Thanksgiving entertainment at taxpayer expense

Having returned from his Asian tour, President Obama spent the remainder of the Thanksgiving week entertaining his family and the Oregon State Basketball team.

As Michelle Obama's mother lives at the White House, the First Family thought it would be delightful if the whole family could spend Thanksgiving together. So, the President arraigned to fly his brother-in-law, Craig Robinson and his family to Washington. But, since Craig is the coach of the OSU basketball team, the Obama's invited the entire team to spend the Thanksgiving Holiday with them.

Expense was no object for the Obama's since they can simply raise taxes to pay for their personal entertainment. Thus, they flew the whole OSU team, and Craig and family, to DC for a few days. They provided them with free housing as well. The team arrived on Wednesday and joined the Obama's at a Food Bank. Then, they all feasted at the White House on Thursday.

The OSU team had no games scheduled last week. Their previous game was against Purdue in New York City on November 16th. Their next game was on Sunday the 25th against Montana State in Corvallis Oregon. This means that the team had no official reason to be in Washington DC, except to be guests of the Obama's and the U.S. taxpayers.

Looking at the team picture in the White House, it appears we entertained at least 22 team members and coaches in addition to the Robinson family. Assuming first class airfare and hotel accommodations, the taxpayers probably spent around $50,000 for the President's and Mrs. Obama's entertainment.

However, since the "fiscal cliff" is facing us, Mr. Obama went back to work on Saturday. He made 2 telephone calls that day, one to Mr. Boehner and one to Mr. Reid.

This week, Mr. Obama had 2 daily briefings, met with his senior advisers and Mr. Panetta once. He is also meeting President-elect Enrique Peña Nieto of Mexico today.

Mr. Obama tours Asia as Michelle is entertained by Aretha

During the past week, President Obama has had only one daily briefing. That was last Wednesday. Since then, he spent one day meeting with business leaders, civic leaders, and congressmen promising all to raise taxes. Plus, he flew to New York City and toured the damage inflicted by Hurricane Sandy. However, the highlight of the week was his conducting a 4 day trip to Asia and visiting Thailand, Burma, and Cambodia. 

He was joined on this trip with Hillary Clinton, but surprisingly, his wife Michelle stayed back in the U.S. After reading that Mrs. Obama attended an Aretha Franklin concert on Saturday with Eric Holder, we assume that Mrs. Clinton switched places with Mrs. Obama because the President wants the Secretary of State out of the country so that she cannot be questioned on Benghazi.

Unfortunately, the President's trip was marred by the interruption of the conflict between Israel and Palestinian Hamas. But, Mr. Obama found time to continue his bowing to leaders of other nations, promising to give them much of our US Tax dollars, and mispronouncing their names.

Crowds signify Romney Victory as Obama Pleads for Revenge

President Obama ended the campaign season with a whirlwind blitz of campaign appearances. He visited Wisconsin, Florida, Nevada, Colorado, Ohio, Virginia, New Hampshire, and Iowa. In all, he alone attended 16 campaign events.

In the same week Michelle Obama spoke at 6 events, traveling to Florida, Virginia, and Ohio. Vice President Biden chipped in as well by attending 5 events as well.

Obama Campaign Event Crowd
In all, the trio chalked up 27 documented campaign events which spanned 5 days.

The President also found time to receive 1 daily briefing, tour the ravaged New Jersey coast, and speak at FEMA Headquarters.

Now that today's voting will determine who the next president will be, we expect Mr. Obama to relax, entertain, travel, vacation, and celebrate.

Regardless if he wins re-election or not, we do not anticipate President Obama working for the country. If he wins, he will just party! If he loses, he will entertain and enjoy the last two months of his presidency. Either way, he will ignore his official duty to lead the country.

So, will Obama win? We predict he will Lose Big Time! 

Our reasoning is based on the turnout at his recent campaign events. Mr. Obama tried to lure crowds to his campaign events by entertaining them with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews and Stevie Wonder. However, compared to the large number of people who attended Romney and Ryan campaign speeches, Obama's turnout was much smaller.

This signals a problem for Mr. Obama because "he should be the star", not a backup performer.  If he had the respect of the nation, our citizens would flock to see him speak regardless of their political affiliation. However, even his base of support failed to go out of their way to see "Our President Speak".

Romney Campaign Crowd
Whereas, Mitt Romney drew 30,000 people in Pennsylvania hoping to get a glimpse of a man who can fix our economy, restore respect for America, and is willing work with both Democratic and Republican Congressmen and Senators.

For this reason, we predict a Romney Victory in today's election!

The following is a summary of President Obama's official schedule during the week of Wednesday October 31 through Tuesday November 6, 2012.
