BURIED, way towards the end of the story, I found this very illuminating observation.......... "While Obama has made a point of organizing his own schedule to be family-friendly, Emanuel is often at the office when the president arrives and still there when he leaves."......... This is something I have noted on FR many times, but which the MSM is oblivious to. The MSM hacks took Bush to task for being lazy, on vacation all the time, etc. If you check Obama's daily schedule on Politico here... http://www.politico.com/politico44/ you will see Obama is never in the office before 9:30, and is almost always done by 5 pm. Today is a perfect example of the messiahs brutal work schedule.

9:35 AM Obama departs the White House en route Andrews Air Force Base.

9:50 AM Obama departs Andrews Air Force One en route Willow Grove, Pa.

10:00 AM 10:35 AM Obama arrives in Willow Grove.

11:00 AM Obama delivers remarks on health insurance reform.

12:00 PM 12:30 PM Obama departs Willow Grove en route Andrews Air Force Base.

1:00 PM 1:15 PM Obama arrives at Andrews Air Force Base.

1:30 PM Obama arrives at the White House.

1:50 PM Obama delivers remarks at event welcoming the BCS National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide to the White House.

2:00 PM 3:00 PM Obama meets with President Funes of El Salvador.

4:00 PM 4:30 PM Obama and Michelle Obama deliver remarks at International Women’s Day reception.

5:00 PM 5:30 PM Obama meets with Sens. Chuck Schumer and Lindsey Graham.

While Obama has made a point of organizing his own schedule to be family-friendly,

More like “home by Happy Hour” friendly. Then he sleeps it off. I don’t have a problem with the Pres getting his drink on. It’s better than his policy decisions.

No economic briefings today
No foreign policy briefings today
No military briefings today

But he is finding time to meet with the Crimson Tide football team.

You can tell what Obama spends his time doing from this quote from the story........ Emanuel does not regularly trek up to Camp David to spend weekends with the president, nor do they play golf or shoot hoops together; in fact, Obama, an avid viewer of ESPN’s “SportsCenter,” teases Emanuel for not knowing much about sports.

Isn’t it nice to have a POTUS who has such a ‘family friendly’ work schedule, and who spends so much time watching ‘Sportscenter’? Gives me great confidence to know he has the codes to the nuclear ‘football’

For such a lengthy article you’d think they would at least touch on Rahm’s role in ruining the economy while working for Freddie Mac in his patronage position. Instead we get the same breathless puff piece expected from the Times where the writer associates some sort of logical strategy to Rahm’s sophmoric bumbling. If you don’t have the gravitas or intelligence to do your job properly I suppose the last resort is to go to the Congressional locker room, strip naked and berate your colleagues in the shower area. Seems like any employer in the U.S. would fire an employee on the spot for such behaviour, but Barry sees it as business as usual. I wonder if Pinch will start doing this in the NY Times locker room as the NY Times doesn’t seem to have a problem with this either.

“Rahm is not somebody who is running over the president of the United States. The president is making the decisions.”

That's good to know. Now we know who to blame when he F A I L S!!!

Rahm Emmanuel is the Mossad's man in the Whitehouse, just like Sandy Berger. Barack Obama is an egomaniac who would be a puppet to Karl Marx himself if given the front seat.

How obvious is it?

Hmmmmmm, a hundred billion or so of US taxpayer money to Goldman Sachs and AIG? Get a clue people - you are being raped!

This article has way too many words and says very little.
