What’s Obama’s excuse for skipping the NAACP convention?


As Twitchy reported earlier, President Obama couldn’t be bothered with attending this year’s NAACP convention in Houston and sent Vice President Joe Biden instead.

Then we discovered his “hectic schedule” excuse was a giant load of crap. (That’s the technical term, right?)

Since we know the dog didn’t eat our Pinocchio in chief’s homework — teleprompters just aren’t that appetizing — the Twitterverse decided to speculate about what Obama’s next excuse might be. Hey, Obama why not try out one of these #ObamaExcuses4SkippingNAACP? They’re a lot more believable than “sorry, too busy.”
