White House Postpones Congressional Picnic

(ABC) Ah, the annual congressional picnic at the White House. A chance for lawmakers and the president to put partisan bickering aside for a night of barbecue, family fun and carefree hobnobbing.

Not so fast.

The White House has postponed this year's rite of summer.

"The White House Congressional Picnic for Members of Congress and their families will not take place in June this year," read an email from the White House Office of Legislative affairs to members of Congress. "We are hopeful that we will be able to reschedule this event for September."

The White House says the decision was based on the president's packed schedule [...]

Yeah, right... Like Obama is known as a hard worker. Unless by "packed schedule" they mean frequent golf outing, lavish vacations and partying.

And I'm sure it has absolutely nothing to do with ongoing scandals, especially the NSA snooping.
