Obama refuses to cancel fundraising marathon so as not to create ‘a false sense of crisis’

Obama toasting BreitbartPresident Obama will be heading west Tuesday for more Democratic fundraisers, despite the crises unfolding in Ukraine and the Middle East.

The trip will span at least three cities in two states, beginning with two events in Seattle which will most likely snarl traffic, according to KIRO-7.

The first event will be held at the 10,000-square-foot Madrona mansion, the waterfront home of Democratic heavy-hitters Bruce and Anne Blume, the Seattle Times reports. There may be a second event at the home of Costco CEO Jim Sinegal which is predicted to create a “giant traffic headache” with up to a 10-mile backup possible.

Obama won’t stick around long as he will jet to San Francisco, staying overnight to attend a $10,000 per ticket Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraising luncheon Wednesday at the Los Altos home of real estate developer George Marcus, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

More events are planned in the Los Angeles area on Wednesday and Thursday.

While many have said Obama appears to lack involvement in the trouble abroad, White House officials brush it off as being the proper thing to do.

“It is rarely a good idea to return to the White House just for show, when the situation can be handled responsibly from the road,” White House communications director Jennifer Palmieri told the Washington Times. “Abrupt changes to his schedule can have the unintended consequence of unduly alarming the American people or creating a false sense of crisis.”

Perhaps these are just phony crises.
