President Obama gave a speech this morning to his union buddies at the AFL-CIO. Certainly seems like a campaign speech instead of “official” business, doesn’t it?

This morning, President Obama has another Totally Not a Campaign Event, addressing the AFL-CIO conference.

Obama on Boehner: "maybe he doesn't drive anymore" #neitherdoesObama

Um. Pretty sure the President doesn’t either, unless he counts the driving range. Not too swift there, buddy. Which isn’t surprising since he went off-text.

Worth noting, the Boehner not driving line was not in the prepared text. #notvetted

Obama is really going off script this AM. whole paragraphs not included in the prepared text sent to reporters.

— Zeke Miller (@ZekeJMiller) April 30, 2012

He’s not too good at the whole thinking on his feet thing.

Note: Obama is billing tax cuts as spending. #framing

Math is hard.

Obama disses his DIY skills Monday, goes off script: Fortunately I’m in a rental and don’t have to do a lot of work. (At AFL-CIO speech)

So is actual work.

But he’s totally thinking about us and stuff.

Obama in campaign mode: I’ve kept that promise. I’ve kept that promise. I’m still thinking about you. I’m still thinking about you.

— Zeke Miller (@ZekeJMiller) April 30, 2012

Can he get an “Amen!

Presidenting is hard. Campaigning and fallacious blame gaming is far easier, especially when it’s on our dime. Again.
