Barack Obama's Busy Work Schedule
I started visiting the official White House schedule for The Won. Contrary to Lady M's assertions that Buh-rock is exhausting himself with work, I've discovered he's even lazier than we thought....he apparently can roll himself out of bed to occasionally take his first meeting of the day as early as 9:30!
So I've decided to post the daily schedules here (every day can be found at the link above, which has selectable criteria for day/or week). Since it's the beginning of the year, I'm going to c/p all of last week here, in the main body of the Forum, and I'll try to update daily (if anyone wants to help out by posting the daily update, be my guest)!
I think it's important we see how hard The Won is while not sacrificin' on vacay for us.
A couple of things to keep in mind: Note on that the staff "fills" much of the schedule up with THE PRESIDENT'S arrivals and departures to make it look like he's actually doing something!!! All items in italics are fund-raising or election related. (Add further observations below).
