I question the wisdom...

... of leaving town while a government shutdown looms:

A fiery President Obama insisted Tuesday that if he and congressional leaders couldn't reach a deal to avert a government shutdown, "I want a meeting again tomorrow here at the White House."

"I will invite the same folks that we invited today," he added. "And if that doesn't work, we'll invite them again the day after that. And I will have my entire team available to work through the details of getting a deal done."

Obama's team may not include the president himself. Despite the impasse in Washington over federal spending, the president as of early Wednesday was scheduled to give two speeches outside of Washington: one on energy in the Philadelphia suburbs, then another Wednesday evening to a group of black political activists in New York.

Not just any group of black political activists:

alg_sharpton-obama.jpgPresident Obama is making his second visit to the city in as many weeks - and is calling upon an unlikely ally to shore up the support of his political base.

Obama will be speaking Wednesday for the first time as commander in chief at the annual convention of the National Action Network and standing with its founder, the Rev. Al Sharpton - whom the President largely ignored before his 2008 election.

The symbolic speech at the Sheraton in midtown - coming just days after the President held two events in Harlem - indicates that Obama, who is battling slipping poll numbers, is trying to bolster his standing among African-Americans, political scientists said.

"It proves again that 2012 will be very different than 2008," said Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia. "Then, Obama was very wary of the race issue and of being labeled as a 'black candidate.'"

"But some of the enthusiasm surrounding that election has faded," said Sabato. "He needs an injection of energy and Sharpton can provide some of that, at least in the black community."

I recommend he meet tomorrow with his ex-pastor Jeremiah Wright... and continue his quest to do what he can to transcend race in America.

Again I have to ask... how in hell can anyone take this guy seriously?

How?

The irony is that nobody does takes him seriously.

Anybody with half a clue realizes he's an empty suit.

His supporters either are too stupid to engage in critical thinking, or they're looking for handouts, or they're supporting him solely because of his skin color, or they went senile half a decade ago, or they haven't yet even graduated.

Obama is like the spoiled brat dropout who inherits all the stock in a private company and then installs himself as titular CEO. Nobody who works for the company actually would respect the kid, but merely by title and ownership a certain amount of tribute has to be paid.

Caesar Augustus @ #2 ~ You left off the list of diehard Obama supporters those who hate America and capitalism and any concept of American exceptionalism, and who want to see the nation "taken down a peg or two" - if not outright destroyed.

Woop @ #5 ~ You're correct that Obama's presence for negotiations makes no difference. He can vote "present" from AF1 - they have really cool air phones - and not miss a free meal, a golf game, or even the $35,000 per person fundraiser with Fat Cats in Frisco. It isn't like having the buffoon around would add anything positive, is it? And btw - your spelling is Freudian.
