There is something to be said for hard work and dedication to achieving results, even when it means schmoozing with those you disagree with and compromising when necessary. Especially when you are the leader. President Ronald Reagan and President William Jefferson Clinton knew this. So have all other effective presidents.
I wonder what President Barack Obama doesn't get about the hard work and all the other stuff as well...
POLITICS - President Obama does his job less often than any commander-in-chief since Grover Cleveland, who held the office in the 19th century.
That’s according to Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was interviewed on MSNBC Wednesday ahead of a Republican-backed measure to sue Obama for overstepping his executive authority, especially in his unilateral actions to implement Obamacare.
But in the interview, Wasserman Schultz, a US congresswoman from Florida, inadvertently agreed with a complaint levied most often by Republicans that Obama has not put much effort into his job.
“I’m going to go to the House floor and actually debate why we shouldn’t be voting for the first time in American history to sue the president of the United States for doing his job, and doing his job actually less often and at a rate that is lower than any other president since Grover Cleveland,” said Wasserman Schultz, while fingering Republicans who she claims “refuse to do anything.”
It is unclear why Wasserman Schultz compared Obama to Cleveland, who was president for two non-consecutive terms from 1885 to 1889 and from 1893 to 1897
According to an analysis by the New York Post, Obama has played golf 185 times since taking office in 2009. He has hit the links 81 times during his second term — more than doubling the rate of his first term.
Obama also spends a lot of time raising money for fellow Democrats. According to the Post, he has attended 75 fundraisers since the 2012 re-election.
