So, about that busy schedule that’s keeping Obama from addressing the NAACP
How ’bout that. Not much going on today, huh?
President Obama doesn't have time in his schedule for the NAACP. His admin's words.

WH said "scheduling" prevented Obama from speaking at NAACP. Yet he has nothing on his public schedule today. http://t.co/bg8zzPHk

When the president is invited and sends an underling instead, that’s an undeniable dis, especially when his opponent shows up in person. Obama, who won 95 percent of the black vote in 2008 (and who, you may have heard, is America’s first black president), may believe he can afford to take black voters for granted. But that’s not at all clear.
Hey, have it your way.
Boehner and Pelosi have news conferences. President Obama has no public events on schedule. Biden will represent to NAACP convention.
