BARACK OBAMA PROFESSIONAL FUND RAISER AT TAX PAYER EXPENSE
Yes all Presidents have used the office and perks to fund raise during a reelection bid but Obama spends more time fund raising than being President. Now in some respects this is a good thing because it is that much less time for him to continue to destroy our country. But, I as a tax payer am disgusted that my tax money is used to support his fund raising efforts especially since I don't want him to be reelected.
Now how does Obama's 101 compare to President Bush as of March 8 of 2006 when he was running for reelection? At this same point in his term Bush had attended 51 fund raisers for his reelection bid with the majority being in Washington and not requiring travel except by Presidential limo. That's half the number of Barack Obama.
Let's go back even further to see what Bill Clinton did during his reelection year of 1996. Clinton attended even less that Bush with a total of only 33 as of March 8, 1996 in his bid for reelection. One third of the Obama total. In fact if you combine the Bush and Clinton totals both former Presidents attended 84 fund raisers or 17 LESS than the professional fund raiser Barack Obama.
When asked about this ridiculously large amount of fund raisers, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney passed the blame on to The Supreme Court stating that Obama had to spend more time fund raising since the high court said that Super Pacs could continue to be used during Presidential campaigns and Republicans had many Super Pacs. Of course Carney neglected to mention Obama's Super Pacs, but then it would have made his lame argument seem even more asinine than it was.
So even without supporting Obama we who are tax paying Americans and want this yo yo out of office are being forced to help pay for his reelection in the amount of jet fuel, motor vehicle fuel, lodging and entertainment it takes to allow this professional fund raiser to trip the lights fantastic schmoozing the fat cats and partying with donors who are stupid enough to help reelect this absolute failure and disgrace to the honored Office of President of the United States.
