Perish the thought, Obama’s actually skipping a party! How much more sacrifice will there be?
President Barack Obama is canceling his planned appearance at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s annual gala due to the partial government shutdown.
Obama and first lady Michelle Obama were planning to attend the Washington event Wednesday, but both are canceling. It’s the first year as president that Obama won’t attend the event, where actress Salma Hayek and others will be honored. The institute says Obama started attending in 2008 when he was a presidential candidate.
Oh well, it’s not as if he hasn’t pandered to them enough already. We’ll know he’s really dug in if he actually is forced to cancel a tee time this weekend. Oh, and as to calling it the Obama Shutdown, that’s what it is.
