Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

The Obamas “feel your pain”, all the way to their black-tie parties this week

The hayseed from Arkansas that used to diddle portly interns in the Oral Oval Office was, admittedly, good at the “I feel your pain” schtick.  Ergo, President Kick#ss is going to give it a whirl:

President Obama told a small crowd in Fairfax, Va., on Monday that he would stand in the hot sun with them and “feel their pain.”

He was meeting with a Fairfax family for a backyard discussion on the economy in an effort to improve voter perceptions about his empathy with ordinary people.

And by “feel your pain”, he means this:

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have a packed social schedule this week, with two major galas and a reception for college athletes.

On Monday evening, the president will welcome collegiate star athletes to the White House for a reception at 5:45 p.m. The annual event, first held by former President George W. Bush, recognizes outstanding student athletes in more than a dozen sports, including field-hockey, lacrosse, and volleyball. Neither of Obama’s alma maters, Columbia University and Harvard University, made the grade.

On Wednesday the First Couple will don black tie for the annual Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute gala, one of the more entertaining political galas of the Washington fall season. A number of entertainers are being honored with awards, including Eva Longoria Parker, five-time Grammy winner Arturo Sandoval, and musician Sheila E. Also participating in the festivities will be Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Hopefully the Obamas get some rest Thursday or Friday, because they will be back in formalwear on Saturday night for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s (CBCF) annual Phoenix Awards dinner. The dinner will mark the culmination of the foundation’s 40th Annual Legislative Conference.

Nothing quite screams “empathy” quite like tux-clad galas among the elites, no?  But as Shelly O says, it’s “hell” being First Lady, no?  We should be feeling her pain, right?

  1. Isn’t Fairfax County, Virgina just outside Washington D.C., and one of the economically least hit parts of the country? And he feels their pain? And he’s willing to stand out in the sun… in mid-September when the average temp is in the mid 70’s with no humidity? Thank God, we have a President who would suffer so much for his fellow citizens.

  2. I find their sad attempts at feigning sympathy to be amusing.
