A brand new “work” week starts today for the president of the United States. Obama is off to New York City on Air Force One for not one, not two, but three more campaign fundraisers. First things first. That makes nine fundraisers in the last two “work” days.
At least that part’s working for him, albeit not as well as his cadre had hoped. This week does hold, according to late polls, the threat of a political spanking tomorrow in Wisconsin, if voters reject the recall of Republican Gov. Scott Walker and endorse his fiscal reforms that have already saved taxpayers millions.
To avoid just such embarrassment the White House tried to hide its recall support behind the Democratic National Committee, but a GOP win would augur ill for Obama capturing that crucial Midwestern state come Nov. 6.
