Caution, President at work! Of course that's only if you call the "Obama Classic" work! (Video)

The "Obama Classic"
Don't let anyone ever tell you it's easy being President!

Let's take a look at the schedule. If it's Wednesday that must mean that Barack Obama will be hard at work doing the bidding of the citizens of the United States, right?

Maybe he'll be burning the midnight oil in the Oval Office doing domestic policy things or maybe some foreign policy stuff?

Could be he'll be focusing on creating jobs or making sure that we have some semblance of peace in the Middle East?

Of course it's always possible that instead he'll be working in a bi-partisan way with the Congress to make sure that the fiscal cliff is just a saying the media likes to use with no chance of ever coming to fruition while at the same time opening a dialogue with Putin to make sure that Russia doesn't park ballistic missiles in Cuba?

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah and nah!


None of the above of course! Your President has simply been too busy spending his time and our money fundraising to the tune of about one event every 60 hours.

I'm sure he wishes that there was more time available to be spend on the other mundane duties of the Office, but....!

In actuality since the beginning of the campaign Barack Obama has attended more fundraisers than any other president running for reelection in history.

Some of the President's events have been on the unglamorous rubber chicken circuit while others have been spent with the millionaires and billionaires he so loves to say that he despises.

So with that said, what's on Wednesday's agenda?

That music video can only mean one thing. It's time for the "Obama Classic" in New York City where it's isn't be enough to simply shirk the duties of the office but to inconvenience an entire town as well!

Here's the donation invitation from the Obama campaign:

"I'm so jealous of you that I can barely write the rest of this email.

Imagine shooting hoops with Carmelo Anthony, Patrick Ewing, Sheryl Swoopes, Kyrie Irving, and Alonzo Mourning. Oh, and you'll get to meet President Obama and Michael Jordan over dinner, too.

Now stop dreaming and make it happen. You and a guest of your choice could join President Obama and some of the greatest basketball stars for a special night at the Obama Classic.

Pitch in $3 or whatever you can, and you'll be automatically entered for a chance to win.

Hit the court with Patrick Ewing and Melo? Trade stories with the President? This is the kind of stuff your kids will tell their kids, and no one will believe it until you show them a photo.

Don't worry if suiting up with hoops stars isn't your thing.

I know you've got a kid or a friend who would love nothing more than to play with their heroes while you cheer them on from a courtside seat." (Source)

And from the White House Press Pool:

"Pressed on whether Obama planned to play basketball in NYC on Wed as part of a campaign fundraiser, Psaki initially played coy, saying she wanted to keep some things under wraps.

But she said, "the president does love basketball."

When asked about signs that Obama had a slight limp, Psaki said, "I feel pretty good about how the president is going to play tomorrow. He is playing with some NBA heroes."

Further details on NYC events: there is a dinner, at $20,000 a head, for about 120 people, and two earlier fundraisers: autograph signing event at $250 a person, and the aforementioned basketball skills camp."

So remember when it comes time to cast your vote in November that this is how President Obama has spent his time and our money!
