Obama was ‘too busy’ to help Democrats recall Scott Walker

DejectedTom Barrett supporters after failed recall: Where was Obama?

President Barack Obama now claims he was too busy to help fellow Democrats throw union-busting Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker out of office in last week’s recall election.

“As President of the United States, I’ve got a lot of responsibilities,” Obama told Green Bay radio station WBAY in an interview. “Obviously, I would have loved to see a different result.”

But Obama did nothing to alter the outcome of the election.  He didn’t campaign for Democratic challenger Tom Barrett.  He didn’t even put in an appearance in the state nor did he send in any surrogates to represent him.

“The truth is, Obama looke at the polls and didn’t want to risk his own dwindling voter appeal in a losing race,” a senior Democratic consultant told Capitol Hill Blue Monday.  “He could have made the time.  He didn’t.”

Which leaves the question:  Will Wisconsin voters have time for him in November?

    How can anyone seriously consider voting for Obama again?

    Didn’t have any issues attending fund raisers in the general area.

    Romney didn’t show up either.
