David Pfouffe Defends Obama Fundraising Day Of Terrorist Attack: Well, You Know, Obama's On Call If Anything Important Comes Up

No one's calling this out.

Perhaps I'm being overliteral here.

But Plouffe's defense of Obama fundraising hours after a major terrorist attack is that he's "on call 24/7."

NBC’s DAVID GREGORY: “Was it inappropriate for him to go to a fundraiser the day after this attack now in retrospect knowing that it was a terrorist attack, inappropriate for him to engage in politics as usual?”

DAVID PLOUFFE: “No. The president obviously is 24/7 engaged in the job of the presidency. He has spent an enormous amount of time in these weeks, by the way, in the aftermath of this terrible tragedy. So absolutely not. A president is on call 24/7, and that just comes with the job.”

What does "on call" mean? It means you might not be working, per se, but you are ready, willing, and able to work, at a moment's notice, if something important comes up.

Did nothing important come up? I rather thought something important came up. Something that he would be "called in" about. Something about a major terrorist attack in which four Americans, including our ambassador to Libya, were murdered in a coordinated military raid.

If they don't trouble to call him into the office for things like this, what exactly do they call him in for? To approve garbage man ads?

Call me crazy, but this is one of those things I think I might call the Smartest Man in the World in on.

Turns out when the 3 a.m. call came in, Obama was out fundraisin'.

Plus, even Jon Stewart understands how bad this is for Obama. Perhaps if they did bother to rouse Obama from his Fundraisin' n' Golf layabout lifestyle, he might have informed himself of the actual facts of the matter, and not continued blaming "the video" days after his press secretary announced the attack was "self-evidently" terrorism.

News of the coverup is trickling out to the general masses. Worth a view, I think. Not terribly funny, but bless his heart, he tries.
