After Grueling Weekend Doing Nothing, President Downgrade to Hold FundraisersTonight

This will really look good if the market collapses again today.
After spending a low-key weekend at Camp David, the only item on the president’s schedule this morning is his daily briefing in the Oval Office.

Tonight the president will attend two off-camera DNC fundraisers in Washington, D.C. Obama will speak at a private residence first, before heading to an event at the St. Regis hotel.
Fundraising. It's pretty much the only thing he's competent at.

I recall August 8 was the date Nixon announced he would resign (he left office August 9, 1974). Would be nice to see history repeat itself.

So let's see, Obama's upcoming schedule consists of fundraisers, a photo-op bus tour and then vacation. Word has it Nero's fiddling is now playing on his iPod.

What do you mean "doing nothing"- he listened to a Ludacris CD

May I ask an impertinent question?

Why--exactly--are tonight's fund-raisers "off-camera"? Says who? Isn't there a free press in this country? Aren't there citizen journalists with cameras who might be willing to snap pictures at the St. Regis Hotel? Isn't there somebody in Washington prepared to divulge the name of the plutocrats hosting President Downgrade's fundraiser? And, perhaps, willing to explore how many times said plutocrat has played golf with the the Fundraiser In Chief?

Just askin'.
