Go here, read and watch video, then return.
Okay, you’re back. “I’ve been keeping the First Lady waiting for about half an hour, so I’m gonna take off.” What? WHAT?!!! You’re the President of the United States of America. You just worked a deal with your Lex Luthors and you won’t even explain yourself at the press conference? You’re base, which is quickly unraveling and seeing what conservatives were screaming about in 2008, deserve an explanation. Oh, and Barack, Michelle and the Christmas party can wait. You’re the President and I don’t think they’ll be angry if you show up late.
If you’re a first time reader to this blog, welcome. If you’ve been reading me for a while then you know that I didn’t vote for Obama. He will be a one term President and he knows it. It’s interesting that Obama filled his cabinet with old Clinton appointees, now he’s letting Bill clean up his political messes.
