According to reports from the White House, Barack Obama has instructed his staff to clear his calendar for the month of October this year. Obama, who is in his last four months in the White House, is apparently concerned that a Republican President would overturn his legacy. Obamacare, EPA rules against coal, green energy initiatives are all at risk for this President.
Just as Obama did when first elected to office, most opposite political party Presidents spend their first 100 days in office overturning the previous President’s executive orders and memorandums. Obama would much prefer to preserve those executive mandates by helping Hillary Clinton become America’s next President, and thus preserving his third term in office.
Many sitting Presidents endorse a candidate for the Presidency when their term is up; it is very rare for a President to actively campaign for someone else.
So, for the entire month of October, President Obama plans to actively campaign for Hillary Clinton, instead of focusing on the duties he was elected for: the Security of our Country, Enforcing National Laws, Reduction of the National Debt, etc.
The President’s Annual Salary is approximately $400,000, with additional perks for travel and housekeeping. Air Force One costs approximately $180,000 per hour to operate. FEC Rules are loosely interpreted, but require the Political Party to repay the American people at a reduced rate if the travel is purely political, and no requirement if there is “Government Business” involved. The rules are “fuzzy” at best.
We the People are demanding Congress, as the sole authority of Federal revenue, to withhold any salary and/or pension and/or travel expense amounts from the President while he is actively campaigning for someone else.
