Obama tops recent presidents in fundraising attendance

Quote:
WASHINGTON – President Obama has attended 191 fundraisers for himself and others, far exceeding the fundraising pace of presidents going back to Jimmy Carter as he drives to stockpile money for his re-election, according to new data compiled for USA TODAY.

"Fundraising is definitely his No. 1 priority," said Republican National Committee spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski. "They are worried they don't have the fundraising advantage he once had because enthusiasm is down on his side."
Well, that's really his only worry...HIS job, HIS re-election.

Good lord, look at that;

Good for him!

Now, if only the number of anti-Obama threads can be kept to under 191 in the next 9 months...

We as the voting public need to know exactly who is bankrolling this turd. Seriously...............then maybe we might be able to boycott those special interests???????? Oh wait what's that you say? You say people in Hollywood, companies like Apple etc. are? You mean to tell me I might have to put down my Iphone and turn off the t.v.???? OH hell no! Obama 4 more years!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It really doesn't matter where the money comes from. Americans will never bite the corporate special interest hand that feeds their materialism.

Bitterness. The loser mentality. The perpetual play of the victim card.

He's done it better than any other president??

Right wingers hating on the Chinese because they are crawling up to take America's n# spot??

No, i dont think so. I think the more you extremists on the right open your mouths the MORE you look like sore losers!! and thats all you will ever be.

Time to abandon that ship and vote for your only way of redemption and vote for Romney at least he's bit of a progressive.
