POTUS's schedule for Monday, May 14, 2012: Big Apple

President Obama heads up to New York City to start out his week. The first thing on his agenda is speaking at the commencement for Barnard College. While there, he'll receive the school's top honor, the Barnard Medal of Distinction. Another recipient of the medal is Evan Wolfson, a longtime advocate for gay rights and same-sex marriage. So the topic will likely find its way once again to the forefront of issues today. Later this evening, Obama will remain in the Big Apple long enough to raise more money for his campaign in two fundraisers. According to a democratic source, the first is targeting the LGBT community and will be hosted by singer Ricky Martin. There will be about 200 people in attendance and tickets start out at $5000. The second event is at a private residence with about 60 people attending. Tickets for that dinner are the election standard $35,800.

    Dave, he is a wuss! A rich wuss! A flip-flopping, lying wuss! Yep, he is afraid of sitting down at a news conference because he doesn't know what might pop out of his mouth!! OMG!! God forbid another group of media reporters and journalists ask to sit down with him in a news conference, he will be a bumbling fool, trying to remember what lies he told in the last conference, so that he could tell the same one again!! However, he won't make it!! He'll start flip-flopping and lying even against his own lies!! When he looks in the mirror, and the person in the mirror looks right back at him, he swears that not him!! And if we don't believe him, ask his wife!! LOL!! Pitiful!!
