White House: Obama Can’t Go to Gettysburg Because of Obamacare Mess

Reporters from National Journal and The New York Times pressed White House House advisor Dan Pfeiffer today to say what's preventing President Obama from going to Pennsylvania for the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address.

"Serious question," National Journal's Ron Fournier asked. "What is on his schedule that is more important than Gettysburg anniversary?"

 

"Oh, I don't know," Pfeiffer responded, "there's this whole website thing that someone suggested might destroy the Dem Party."

One response from the Twitter peanut gallery: "Is President Obama writing code for the website? Can't he do his job from Gettysburg?"

Pfieffer's Tweet was a not-so-veiled jab at recent Fournier columns on Obama's handling of the Obamacare rollout.

 

Pfeiffer and the White House have said that the Gettysburg anniversary doesn't work with the president's schedule. Among other things, he's scheduled to meet with CEOs at the Four Seasons Hotel in Georgetown instead.
