|President Barack Obama and Obama Advisor Dan Pfeiffer - thick as theives|
President Obama did not attend the 150th Anniversary of Lincoln's delivery of the Gettysburg Address in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania yesterday. We were told it was due to numerous scheduling conflicts, he's busy fixing the ObamaCare website, and still working on 'lowering the seas' as he promised during his 2008 campaign.
Yes, the President was too busy to attend Tuesday's commemoration (it's over 43 miles away from where he is after all), but he was able to squeeze in 18 holes this past Sunday. In the end, the President remains conflicted, the website (and Legislation) remains 'busted', and 'sea levels', well, they are what they are - no changes to the good or ill recorded.
It would have been nice if the President saw his way clear to spend a few hours celebrating the vision and sacrifice of those who fought and died so that he might one day become President of the United States, but 'Matters of State' being what they are, well, he had no time for mixing it up with the masses.
He has work to do.
No. For his Democratic Party.
I say this not because I believe the President is an Ideologue who puts politics above all else (okay, I BELIEVE it, but I'm not saying it here, okay), but rather because White House Advisor, Dan Pfeiffer said it for me.
A reporter inquired of the White House as to WHY the President would not be attending an event which would remember the 16th President who, passed Legislation which declared slaves free, allowing Barack Obama to become President, Oprah Winfrey to become a Racist, and Al Sharpton to, um, whatever it is that he is...
The President WAS busy, but he wasn't busy with matters of state, he was busy trying to address the only thing which matters to him... His Party.
Ron Fournier's Question: "What's on his schedule that is more important than Gettysburg anniversary?"
Dan Pfeiffer's Response: "Oh, I don't know, there's this whole website thing that someone suggested might destroy the Dem Party."
Yes, this is the official response from the White House's 'Communications Guy', Dan Pfeiffer.
He's not looking to fix the website because people are losing their insurance, rather, he's looking to save his Party.
Well played Dan, well played.
Is this the first time Dan's been in a Twitter 'Roid Rage? Oh no, he's been here before...
Someone tweeted Pfeiffer a note on October 8, 2013, that a website acknowledged race as a major factor in American political 'polarization', blaming the increased 'divide' on (radical?) Internet and cable sources, vs. traditional (Administration Friendly) Media outlets.
Pfeiffer responded that "It's a very smart point and massive factor in political polarization."
He then went on to Tweet, "Also a much nigger factor on the right."
Okay, I know that he was attempting to blame the 'bigger' political polarization on the 'Right', but seriously, Dan, do you read what you actually post?
I will NOT pick on Dan any longer, instead, I'm including a couple of Tweets sent to him following his 'N-Word' drop via Twitter...
Yeah, what they said.
The polarization of America continues.
It begins at the top and worms it way down into the core of our society.
