Skip to comments.Obama: I couldn’t go to Wisconsin to campaign against Scott Walker because I was busy with stuff

Via Mediaite, actual quote: “As president of the United States, I’ve got a lot of responsibilities.” Responsibilities? Wasn’t he golfing on Saturday, May 26, ten days before the election? In fact, wasn’t he right next door to Wisconsin in Minnesota and Illinois the Friday before the polls opened? I do believe he was. Let’s see what important presidential responsibilities he was tending to that day:
On Friday, he visited Minneapolis, Minnesota, for a midday speech and three fundraisers. He departed late afternoon for Chicago and three more fundraisers that evening. The president stayed overnight in his hometown and spent Saturday morning at his old home before flying back to Washington, D.C., for a brief stop before heading to Camp David for some downtime.
So just four days before the recall elections in Wisconsin that the states Democrats have worked 16 months to win, with potential implications for November 2012, the leader of their party did six fundraisers for himself in surrounding states but couldnt find time for even a quick stop? Think about it: As Wisconsin Democrats were busy getting voters to cast early ballots Friday and organizing for Tuesday, Air Force One flew overhead twice — from Washington to Minnesota and Minnesota to Chicago.
According to BuzzFeed, he held 13 fundraisers during the two weeks before the election. And even so, having had six days to come up with an excuse for why he refused to fly into Madison and risk a loser-by-association narrative in the aftermath, the best he and Axelrod could come up with is “I was busy” — when we know for a fact that he wasn’t. I can’t believe this guy’s still leading on InTrade.
Silver lining: The 15-paragraph PolitiFact apologia for why this statement is “mostly true” should be epic. (“Obama is correct that presidents have many responsibilities.”)
busy with stuff = playing basketball with friends
stuff = playing cash pickup man from delusional obamabots
The next time Øbama answers the question asked will be the first.
He was busy with stuff?...Yeah, I’ll bet you was busy with stuff!...You just didn’t feel like walking into a buzz saw, right Gilligan?
didn’t want to be risked “a loser-by-association narrative in the aftermath.”
That about sums it up.
busy with stuff = flying between Chicago and Ohio to fundraise.
Whatever. Their loss!
LMAO - STUFF? LOL, what “stuff” HUSSEIN? Exactly what “stuff”????????? - Planning your next big lie? Playing golf? Using OUR money for something???? Hmmmmm??? Do tell.....
I bet stuff was a guy.
busy with stuff=proclaiming national homo month.
He just does what he’s told.
Thanks, President Starkey (also a fraud).
“Stuff’s gettin’ better. Stuff’s gettin’ better all the time.”
He was busy GETTING STUFFed.
Why do you think those ears stick out so much? They're his "love handles".
“I bet stuff was a guy.”
Better than with “Chunks” the dog.
2. Household or personal articles considered as a group.
3. Worthless objects.
Maybe he was playing games on Facebook, like my “busy” son. (The same one who, when I walk in his room to find him snoring face-down on his bed, was “just reaching for something I dropped back there!”)
“busy with stuff”. That is the language of a 5th grader but don’t worry. Between Big Ears & the smartest women in the world we are in good hands.
“busy with stuff=proclaiming national homo month.”
Be fair.... He just dropped the “l” from “Flag Day”.
That took no time at all. LESS, in fact, with one fewer letter.
Somewhere between laughable and pathetic. Not exactly sure where it lies on that continuum.
Myabe “the stuff” is the new ghetto word for blow.
You said it
Mmmmmm.....it seems like only yesterday.................
The White House cats needed waxing. And somebody needed to administratively oversee the supervision of that process.
Yeah so busy that after 6 fundraisers on Thursday and Friday he needed to rest at Camp David for the weekend before he jetted to California on Monday for more campaign money!!
