Posted on 01/23/2012 6:17:37 AM PST by lbryce
The Oval Office must be a quiet place these days.
Trying desperately to save his job, Barack Obama has given up on actually doing his job. Hes courting wealthy donors for campaign cash. Hes crisscrossing the country rallying disaffected voters. And hes running disingenuous ads in five battleground states.
Hes out busily trying to secure a second term, while Americans are still waiting for him to deliver on the promises of his first. Yet judging by the presidents schedule, we shouldnt get our hopes up.
Obama is in full-time campaign mode. And its only January.
This week the president sets off on a three-day campaign jaunt through five different states. Last week he held four Manhattan fundraisers and took a trip to Disney World.
But he didnt save the fairy tales for the Magic Kingdom. The Obama campaign is up with a strange new ad in swing states defending his record on ethics, saying the president kept a campaign promise to toughen ethics rules. An independent fact-checker, Politifact, called the ad half-true. Does that make him semi-ethical?
What does it say about Obamas record that this was the campaigns debut ad of 2012?
Mostly, it says they have no record to run on. A record of success in jobs and the economy would be easy to champion. But when you have a record of failure, half-truths are the best you can do.
Expect to hear more of this as Obama hits the stump this week. Hell ignore his failures and build his case on faulty premises and empty promises. That worked in 2008 because Obama had no record. But it wont work in 2012 because he has a very clear record.

Reince Priebus is chairman of the Republican National Committee. A native of Wisconsin, he is a lawyer by profession and previously served as chairman of the Wisconsin Republican Party and RNC General Counsel.
To say that Obama has given up on his job implies that he had once applied himself to the duties of the Oval Office as CiC. But the fact is, Obama is uniquely unqualified for the job, having never performed the duties of his job as president because he's never had the sort of job that provided him with the skills needed to lead the nation in the sort of leadership role the job demands.
Thank God for that!
Obama cares about jobs. His own and a few of his close commie buds.
BTW What SS# did jug ears use for his one and only real job?
Yaaaaay! Keep up the good uh, um ,err, work you dung beetle!
I think he gave up last year.
He never started anyway...This is what MOST politicians do...That`s why they need to go back to part time with low pay..I mean , there is not always a need for new laws and such...
After winning the Nobel Peace Prize, I don’t blame him. I mean what else is there for him to do...really?
Well done. Reince Priebus is a huge improvement over Michael Steele.
His job is destroying America.
He hasn’t given up his job.
Barry needn’t be present for his wrecking ball crew at the WH to continue to destroy our country.
He’s a puppet with many masters pulling his strings.
Hit the links Obama, then hit the bricks next January.
Never knew how, never cared enough to take the time to learn, too stupid to learn through his mistakes, too arrogant to learn anyway if someone tried to teach him. And besides, it might detract from his vacations, golf, and bball.
FUBO GTFO! 363 Days until Noon Jan 20, 2013
If I was a lawyer I’d file a suit asking the court to ground Air Force One. Taxpayer money is being used by obama to campaign.
I don’t know why we even need a congress. This country is over 200 years old. You’d think we could have figured out all the laws we’d need by now.
Seems like an act of a desperate candidate. He's the incumbent, running unoppposed, and ten months out from the election he's running ads? Why waste money now? Why not hold off until your opponent has been nominated and just 'carpet-bomb' with advertisements in September and November.
The Cretin-in-Chief is acting logically (for once),
Why attempt to do that which is totally beyond your ability (used single here, ‘cause the loon has only one ability, and that is to be a vapid dork with a faked background).
He actually never did the job of POTUS - to preserve and defend the Constitution,
but you’re right, his job, as he defines it, continues.
He is still working hard to screw things up.
Odd - www.whitehouse.gov hasn’t put up his schedule for this week. I keep track of the bozo’s trips in AF One and I’ve been checking for a few days now. Still nothing!
Killing the Keystone Pipeline will be the last thing he will do that even resembles governing, and he did that only because the Republicans forced him to decide. What he did is not popular, and he knows it.
It is a very good thing that he won't govern. It's a bad thing that all we will have to listen to is his attempts to persuade us through speech making.
Talk talk talk.
My prediction is that it will become tedious, and counterproductive.
Campaigning is a lot like community organizing. It's the one thing Obama feels comfortable doing.
What are you saying? That he “tripped” and “fell” into a lifeboat?
He is doing his job diligently, thank you, and has not given it up.
The New World Order/Elite/Marxists that hired him sent him forth to tear down everything American about the United States. There’s no question but that he is doing that efficiently and faithfully. He hasn’t let up.
Because of his Narcissism he has to keep extolling his imagined virtues and that fits in beautifully with electioneering.
President Urkel is to The United States what Captain Schettino was to The Costa Concordia.
Does anybody know what rules apply for a “campaigning” president versus one actually doing his job? (A quick look at his daily schedule shows that this one has NEVER done the people’s business on a regular basis.)
Does he have unlimited use of Air Force One for campaign purposes?
Just wondering ... I’m sure there must be a precedent for this somewhere.
Priebus is the voice of the establishment Republicans. They will never allow us conservative Republicans any power. We will have to take that power from them!
Beware of county Republican groups too. Our local group endorsed Romney two weeks ago. We took our names off their roll and will not be contributing except to individual candidates.
Promised everyone a free rocket pack and gave them a $44K Volt.
