Press secretary Jay Carney stated today that despite scolding Congress for not working hard enough on a deficit deal, President Obama won’t be canceling two fundraisers in Philadelphia, Carney said. “We can walk and chew gum at the same time,” he said in defense.
In the back yard of a Philadelphia cable executive, President Obama was showing off to donors who coughed up $10,000 each to rub shoulders with the fundraiser in chief. Mark Knoller of CBS News was in attendance and tweeting throughout the event. The president, who spent a good part of yesterdays press conference calling out congress for not doing their job took the opportunity to continue to insult the legislative branch as Knoller tweeted;
Obama is as smug and condescending as ever but I wonder if he realizes that Republican freshman Senator Ron Johnson as already worked out the deficit issue and it is the president, Senator Reid and the Democrats who lack the political will.
