What “tragedy” would be horrific enough for President Obama to cancel his usual schedule of speeches, lunches and fundraisers?

A commercial airliner shot down over Ukraine with Americans aboard?  No.

How about a terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11, killing our ambassador and three others? No.

Perhaps news that Israel has begun a ground offensive in the Gaza Strip? No way.

Obviously our president believes that any change to his schedule is a sign of weakness (and God forbid our commander in chief appear weak).

So today, despite the breaking news of possible Russian involvement with the missile attack against a Malaysian Airlines airliner carrying 295 passengers, crew and over 20 Americans, President Obama forged ahead with his previously planned infrastructure speech in Delaware. (But first he paused for a few seconds to say, “looks like it may be a terrible tragedy.” ) Then he proceeded as normal, including some lighthearted remarks.

Afterwards, he grabbed a burger and fries (“I’m starving” he was quoted as saying), and tonight he will attend a few fundraisers in New York. Just a typical day in the life of our 44th president. Obama is aiding world tranquility after all!

Therefore, my question is what kinds of national or international “tragedies”  would cause President Obama to cancel his fundraisers, partisan speeches and visits to burger joints?

Here is my list of the top five:

1. News that Beyonce and Jay Z are divorcing.

2. His favorite golf course was attacked by al-Qaeda.

3. Lebron James unexpectedly retired.

4. Air Force One was hijacked by the Tea Party.

5. A tsunami destroyed his August vacation compound on Martha’s Vineyard.

Now it’s your turn to add a few of your own…..

Isn't the answer pretty obvious?

The president would cancel a fundraiser...to attend a bigger fundraiser.

What about the attendees ? They know what to expect. Are they any better ethically and morally to show up on the night of a tragic event. The whole Democratic party machine is sick, in my opinion. Canceled or not, no one should have attended.

The United States of America doesn't have a President at the current time. We have a Fund Raiser in Chief, but not an actual President.

A black thug tries to attack and murder a non-black. But the victim stands his ground and the thug gets injured or killed.

He would cancel if...the teleprompter broke. If his makeup person lost his favorite eye shadow (light blue or light grey?) and guyliner. If he had to spend time with Moochelle afterwards and heaven forgive, had to share the same plane. If during the fundraiser he had to make a decision instead of waffling. If he was not allowed to stutter and hem and haw. If he had to say the words, "America is an exceptional nation." If the crowd was not allowed to applaud. If the fundraiser were for someone else.

How about the press corps stop going to listen to the puppets that B.O. hires to do his pr.

After all he gets his news from the media, the same as we do,

So press corps if you can't even get a simple yes, no answer to a yes no question, what is the purpose of attending

The most dangerous place in America is not Detroit or Chicago, it's getting between Barack Obama and a fundraiser.

I can hardly wait for the expose when this So-Called President is out of office. Just what is he really doing when he claims to be playing all that golf?
