Bummer. Obama Loses His Mojo Among School Kids

Poor Obama. It seems that That One, the Messiah, the Lightworker, has lost some of his mojo

The White House is ramping up an effort to promote a nationwide competition to decide which high school wins a commencement speech by President Obama.

An internal White House memo indicates that the White House is facing a shortage of applications less than a week before the deadline.

The competition was extended from the February 25 deadline until Friday, March 11 after few schools met the original application deadline. CBS News has learned a White House Communications Office internal memo dated February 22 noted “a major issue with the Commencement Challenge.”

“As of yesterday we had received 14 applications and the deadline is Friday,” the memo said. The memo also urged recipients to, “please keep the application number close hold.”

A follow-up memo on February 28 reported receipt of 68 applications. Noting the competition among more than 1,000 schools last year, the memo said, “Something isn’t working.” It called on staffers to ask “friendly congressional, gubernatorial and mayoral offices” to encourage schools to apply.

The White House blames this on “procrastination” at the schools. So, even with something as simple as this, Team Obama has to blamestorm, rather than looking at themselves and wondering what they have done wrong.

Good thing this story wasn’t about Bill Clinton. That headline might have been tragic.

  1. Doomed says:

    The Democratic/Progressive Policies of GIMME>>GIMME>>GIMME is a FAILURE.

    I will hand it too Obama though. He at least is willing to stand against the Radical Loons of the left on Gitmo but sometimes things are so obvious that even Progressives get it.

    Obama needs to lead. He is the worst leader ever. People are starving…out of work and he is playing golf, throwing SHINDINGS and partying down…..

    And the people cried AMEN.

    And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.

  3. There are good points and bad points towards Obama’s failure to lead: good because if he was competent, this country would b in worse shape as he implemented his extreme left agenda. Bad because he has destroyed th US on the world stage
