Good morning, sunshine
Here’s the background via The NY Post:
Considering that President Obama has practically made New York his second home between fund-raising, UN visits and “date nights” with the missus, you’d think he’d be a little more sympathetic to beleaguered residents and workers schlepping home on a work night — especially during the holiday season.
No such luck.
The president is in town tonight for three separate fund-raisers — on the same day as the annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree lighting ceremony and concert.
Obama’s visit is a purely optional campaign stop that could’ve been set at any time other than a moment when thousands of tourists will flock to the Midtown area.
Here’s Donald Trump’s take. Saw this on Greta last night.
By the way, I still don’t support him for President. Obama I mean.

Here’s a video that complements the one in the post:
Chris Christie to Obama: What the Hell Are We Paying You For?
Someone needs to start aggregating these in one place so that they reach a wider audience. Anything to counteract the garbage that Obama will be spewing as the campaign starts to heat up.
Thank you, Trump, for speaking up.
Amen. Even when the Donald holds back (I think most of us could have found stronger adjectives to employ than “inconsiderate/inconvenient”), he still doesn’t mince words.
“you’re doing a lousy job” – Wish more of the Repubs would grow a backbone and start saying what everyone else is already thinking.
Sorry, but NYC has nothing on L.A. Every time Obama comes to town–and he’s come often in the last year for glitterati fundraisers–he invariably arrives and departs at rush hour. And because of the geography, the entire city essentially shuts down. What should be a 35-minute commute from Santa Monica to mid-city is a four-hour crawl (or a reason to spend the night in the office) when the major east-west and north-south boulevards are closed. It’s disrespectful in extremis.
“It’s disrespectful in extremis.”
That’s our Bambi, Cass.
And unfortunately that’s also the attitude of his far-left fellow-travelers regarding the average American (i.e., “the great unwashed”). >:-(
Trump and Christie probably could mount one helluva Vegas act!
Tell ‘im Donald… We all know it’s true!
-Anybody but Obama in 2012-
Since NY (and LA) voted for him in spades, my give a damn seems to be busted.
A great point. To go with this we probably need some O billboards asking “Tired of Me Yet?”
and by spades, I mean 62 to 36 in NY
I hope he frigging doubles down on the visits. The 36 might consider moving to Florida.
Thanks to Occupy LA, I just worked a 21-hour shift (6:00 a.m. yesterday to 3:00 a.m. this morning).
LAPD did a fantastic job. I was standing next to the line of cops guarding the front of HQ when the deadline of 12:01 a.m. Monday morning came. Occupy had called in a few thousand supporters … when nothing happened the anti-climax of it all sucked the air out of their intensity. The reinforcements, who’d been gleefully looking for their 15 minutes of fame with the line of TV news trucks ready to film … slowly trudged home.
Early this morning the cops, who had gathered at Dodger Stadium and were bussed in, went in after having closed the freeway offramps and the streets leading to the civic center. All the social media messaging for instant Occupy reinforcements was for naught.
Chief Beck was out on the front lines with his troops (as the cowardly mayor who has been supporting the Occupy crowd waited in the safety of our lobby).
Great performance, Chief Beck!!
[…] some TOTUS nonsense, Barack Obama will head to Hillary Clinton’s former senate constituents. The goal in New York City is to get more money and presumably to laugh at the bitter clinging people…and small town America. Donald Trump will not be giving money to the boob but rather poking the […]
