We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
...the president might consider rearranging his work schedule. Last year came the news that Mr. Obama was unaware of the problems plaguing his health-care website until after its rollout and that he never once had a private meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius between July 2010 and November 2013. How does something like that happen?
An answer of sorts comes in an article by Sean Blanda on "How Barack Obama Gets Things Done" on the 99U website. The president, Mr. Blanda reports, wakes up at seven o'clock. He works out 45 minutes a day every day, not including his regular basketball games. He watches a lot of "SportsCenter." Dinner each night with his family. To limit "decision fatigue," he likes to set policy via memos where he can check the box on "agree," "disagree," or "let's discuss."
Anyone can check the president's daily schedule at Whitehouse.gov. I had been watching it for a long time since Obama first got elected, although I finally got so disgusted after he won reelection I stopped.
His normal schedule is to show up at the office around 10 to 10:30 a.m. He will then have some sort of a meeting until around noon, when he will generally have lunch with Biden (if he's there). Then he leaves. Most of the time it was to go campaigning and fundraising, although I don't know what his pattern is right now. (The schedule usually would say "depart Joint Base Andrews" ). He usually has to pretend to link some sort of official appearance at the other end of the flight(s) in order to bill his campaigning / fundraising travel to the taxpayers.
The one big difference is that after Benghazi, he made the point of getting the presidential daily briefing (security update) on a semi-regular basis. Before Benghazi, you rarely saw that on his calendar, maybe once every couple of weeks.
The bottom line is it can be easily demonstrated he is the most lazy president ever. I remember how the press used to make fun of Ronald Reagan for not coming to the office until 7:30 and then knocking off around 5:30 or 6, but Reagan was an amazing workaholic compared to this guy.
