3:30 pm CT || Departs Killeen

7:20 pm CT || Delivers remarks and answers questions at a fundraiser for House and Senate Democrats; private residence, Houston
All times U.S. Eastern except as notedIf anyone has the time, I would appreciate a full accounting of each and every douche bag that helped formulate this schedule. That would start with whichever opportunistic jerk saw that the president would be traveling to Texas, purportedly to pay his respects at the Fort Hood memorial service, and saw an opening for a fundraiser. Who would have thought that we would ever have a president that held American soldiers and their families in such low regard, that he would squeeze in a glad-handing session just after pretending to care about the tragedy that will forever touch their lives?
List for me, if you can, each and every attendee, donor, valet parking attendant, and catering employee that doesn't have enough patriotic gumption to refuse to participate in this event. Heck, Barack should decorate his lapel with these candidates' campaign buttons at the memorial service - I am sure the DNC would delight in the amount of television coverage they would get.
Gah. I have always said that there is no reason that I would get within spitting distance of this president, but I sure would like to get within crotch-kicking distance.
