The day the United States experienced our first credit downgrade ever, and two days before the president sent Tim Geithner, David Axelrod and John Kerry out to bash S&P and blame the downgrade on the Tea Party, President Barack Obama went out to enjoy the weekend at Camp David. That trip followed half a week of partying while the president and his supporters celebrated his 50th birthday.
Addendum: It’s rich to hear Tim Geithner, who failed to pay his own personal taxes for years, lecturing S&P about its math error when the Obama administration itself has been guilty of making its own $2 trillion dollar error.
Update: Here’s today’s official White House schedule.
10:00 AM: The President receives the Presidential daily Briefing
6:40 PM: The President delivers remarks at a DNC event
7:40 PM: The President delivers remarks at a DNC event
No questions will be allowed at the afternoon remarks “to the press.”
