Obama Pauses Fundraising to Scold Putin

Captioning what may turn out to be the photo of the year is already underway. It's from President Obama's comments regarding Putin's invasion of Ukraine. The White House advance team thought it was a good idea to put the President of the United States on a kindergarten alphabet carpet, for some reason.

It turns out that Obama's comments on the invasion were just a prelude to a couple of political fundraisers. He has one tonight, and another tomorrow. We seem to have a part-time president and a full-time fundraiser.

Obama also released his 2015 budget today. First reactions: It's no more serious than any of his previous budgets, all of which have died swiftly in Congress. While he claims that it's "responsible," it adds more spending onto the already spending-addicted federal government.
