106 Foul Balls

If the Romney camp is correct in their math, President Obama attended 106 fund-raising events over the past six months.  I suppose some of the events were likely in the evening when he was "off duty,"  but others certainly must have been during the day.  Now if you attended 106 external events in the last six months, do you think you would still have a job?  Do you?

Oh, you have one of those salaried positions where it doesn't matter how many hours you work; as long as you get your job done you can go home early?  Good for you.  Do you think the President has gotten his day job accomplished? Do you?

Two strikes, no balls, infinite fouls. Batter up.

You summed it up very, very well.

James - You make a good point.

If someone ever tells you that Obama is working very hard, the reply is that he IS working very hard at fundraising.

But as James points out, better that the POTUS not work hard at governing the country.

Balance the budget for his campaign: good.
Balance the national budget: not so good.
