Wow I was shocked when I read this article this morning.
Last month, ABC News spelled out the gory details of just how much time President Obama has spent raising money:Shocking...how does he fit that all in between campaigning and golf? Give the guy a break. Sheeeeesh!
In the first 12 days of June, Obama has attended 21 fundraising events. All told, he has now attended 163 re-election fundraisers for his campaign and the Democratic Party – almost double the number George W. Bush attended in his entire first term (86) and more than any other president in history.
But as for the real work of the job, President Obama has been a no-show.
Consider this evidence:
He’s not received an economic briefing in over a year—since April of 2011.
He’s held only three full press conferences since last June.
He’s spent no time whatsoever meeting with members of Congress on budget matters. In fact, in his administration, almost every statutorily required budget submission has been late.
In the last six months, he's not met once with his jobs council.
