Background: President Obama apparently has time for daily talk shows. Fellow heads of state? Not so much. And the fool that gave this quote to the New ork Times apparently thought that he was explaining things:
Mr. Obama was scheduled to attend a reception for world leaders at the United Nations on Monday night. But a campaign adviser acknowledged privately that in this election year, campaigning trumped meetings with world leaders. “Look, if he met with one leader, he would have to meet with 10,” the aide said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
Then the President should meet with 10. Or 20. Or however many are there, and not called Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Because that is his job. I pay Barack Obama to meet with world leaders. I do not pay Barack Obama to go on The View.
Sheesh, but these people have no gravitas.
