Obama: I Didn't Come To Wisconsin, Because I Was "Too Busy"

Oh?

He did nine fundraisers in the four days prior to the election, in total Obama hit 13 fundraisers in the 14 days leading up to Barrett’s drubbing by Scott Walker.

I think it's a little worse than that. Obama actually flew over Wisconsin to go from an a Minnesota fundraiser to attend a Chicago fundraiser.

According to ABC News’ Political Punch, the president’s other Minnesota fundraisers did not allow press; one had 20 people paying $40,000 each for a roundtable discussion with the president, and the other had 10 people paying $50,000 each for a similar discussion.

The president then flew over Wisconsin on Air Force One for three fundraisers in Chicago. Estimates are that the president raised $1.8 million in Minnesota and $5 million in Chicago.

He actually flew over Wisconsin twice, avoiding it both times, in the crucial last days of the recall. At one point, when on the ground, he was 15 miles away from the border of Wisconsin -- no quickie rally?

I guess Wisconsin's airports and helipads and highways were also too busy.

I never know how much to make of a lie like this, because it's an obligatory lie. Most people would mumble something like this rather than tell the strict truth.

And yet, it's still a lie. Or maybe just call it "bullshit." Maybe that's the right term.

He does bullshit an awful lot.

Didn't we used to call him "Captain Bullshit"?

Ah yes, we did.

I forget who did that, but it was probably @slublog.
