Obama's Weekly Address Zeroes in on World Crises

You figure with chaos around the globe the leader of the free world would take the opportunity to discuss the myriad crises during his weekly address, right? Uh, no, he's in campaign mode. Don't distract him with these mundane events in Japan or Libya.
Two days after Senate Democrats demanded that President Obama take a more public stance in the budget fight, Obama devoted his weekly address to honoring Women’s History Month.

While Democrats want the president to plunge into the tense standoff with Republicans over spending cuts, Obama is sticking to his own timeline.

In a pre-taped address delivered Saturday morning, Obama extolled Eleanor Roosevelt’s pursuit of equality between the sexes and the recent progress women have made in education and the professions.
Obviously his internal polling shows women are likely abandoning this failed president, so it's time to begin shoring up his base.
Obama touted his enactment of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, which expanded plaintiffs right to sue employers for discriminatory compensation practices.

“I signed a law so that women who’ve been discriminated against in their salaries could have their day in court to make it right,” Obama said.
Forget about the suffering people in Japan and Libya. Let's remind the ladies how great he is.

What an insufferable bore this man is.
