As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama to Hold Six Fundraisers in One Day

With Republicans steamrollering ahead with a group of well-fed Super Pacs and an increasingly successful money effort by Mitt Romney, President Obama Friday will attend six fundraisers, a possible sign of budding desperation for a campaign that is lagging far behind its initial fundraising expectations.

Obama will travel to Minneapolis, where he will ensconce himself at the Bachelor Farmer Restaurant for three successive fundraising events. Afterward, he moves on to Chicago for a fundraiser at the Chicago Cultural Center and then two events at what appear to be separate private residences.

In April, Obama’s fundraising total actually declined by nearly $10 million from the $53 million he took in during March.

Meanwhile, Romney raised $40.1 million in April, nearly on pace with Obama.

Before heading to Minneapolis, Obama will hold an event at the Honeywell Golden Valley Facility in Golden Valley, Minnesota, where he will call on Congress to pass his “To Do List” of economic proposals.

  1. Air Force One costs $8 Million every time it lands and takes off plus $181,757 per flight hour. Add to that the additional travel costs of Marine One, Secret Service, logistics and local police overtime and you start to see just how much THE CAMPAIGNER-IN-CHIEF IS COSTING TAXPAYERS… That’s a lot of taxpayer dollars going into Obama’s carbon footprint.

    And then he tells Americans we need to “tighten our belts.”

    Obama is just another tin-pot dictator living lavishly at the expense of his subjects.

  2. I honestly don’t think that Obama will voluntarily leave the White House if he loses. He will try every dirty trick and every kind of vote fraud to ensure he wins, but if that doesn’t work…..God help us. He’s a total nut-job.

    • AG Eric Holder is already trying to ensure a rigged election. The DOJ is going after Florida for purging their voter rolls of dead, illegal, ineligible peeps. Holder’s feathers are ruffled at the mere chance of a fair and legal election. Obama is in serious trouble and his peeps know it. They will try everything and anything to throw the race or stay in power. This is a very evil sick bunch.

      • @Steve and littleleers: I agree he/they won’t leave willingly, but I’m seeing real strength in Romney. I think we can count on him to stand and deliver.

  3. With the May job report doesn’t matter how much money he has or how many lies he tells, the majority of Americans are ready for someone else to try and fix this mess he’s made.

  4. Obama answer to High unemployment, high debt is not work with congressional leaders but to campaign harder and more often someone tell Preaident Obama that he already has campaigned more than all Presidents combinded from Nixon to himself which means more campaigning than last five Presidents combined.

  5. The One and only Thing Obama is great at is Fund Raising
    and Campaigning None Stop year round .He also is the greatest Lying President ever .
    When he not hosting 35-100 Thousand Dollar Diners with Fat Cats he said he hates .He is bashing Bush now for over 5 years .
    Reagan on the other hand was handed worst Jobs(12.2 %) ,
    Inflation(12.3 %} and Interest rates (21.2 %) .Fixed it in 38 Months and never mentioned Carters the blame one .
    Sadly 90 % of Obama time has gone to everything but Governing .
    Obama has proved he hates .
    Most of us that have watched him closely all agree with sadly .

  6. DESPERATE …DESPERATE …DESPERATE

    time for MOOCHIE to go on another vacation — ooopps — I meant go on the campaign trail ( yea right we know the truth even you cannot cover-up or seal all the records )

    hey OBUMBLES — you counting your daughters wate of taxpayers money going to concerts a offical act – ???

  7. we know you are getting DESPERATE you accused Bush again — get a clue that record is broken — or you could say that ship has sailed

    — people know it is so bad they would vote for Jimmy Carter before they vote for you again LOSER

  8. Is that the same to-do list that his own party Democrats know little to nothing about? As in, what the actual items are on said list. One would think Team Obama could come up with something better–or at least something shown not to be a total gimmick–to justify spending taxpayer dollars on his personal campaign.

  9. To Do List ??? you might want to look at the
    Following Lists first there OBumbles ::
    Broken Promises List
    Lies to the American People List
    another Vacation Michelle List
    promises to the drug companies List
    Lies to the Military List

    the Lists get Longer & Longer people can keep adding to your “LISTS”

    OBumbles you are on my
    “November cannot get here soon enough List”

  10. “I will be a One Term President if I do not fix this economy within 3 years”! We can not agree more Mr. President. Either you can resign or not run again because if you do, you will be defeated. Move over Jimmy Carter, we have found your replacement for the worst of the worst Presidents and it is ………….YOU!

    3. All black people to vote for “me”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdjoHA5ocwU

  11. Of course the liar dems comment that the republicans do nothing to create jobs. Seeing as the only idea the left has for job creation is spending money (theft), what a surprise. The reason we are not creating jobs is known, the left just doesn’t care. They don’t want jobs, they want dependency. What a farce, but having destroyed our education system, they still can compete in elections because of uninformed and indoctrinated people. Oh, and they cheat on elections every time, but that is okay with millions of people. Just a single once of common sense shows them to be frauds.

  12. And each city needs to send the bill for security and all other extra expenses to the Obama Campaign for reimbursement like another city has done.

  13. And most, if not all, at the taxpayer’s expense because he will call his visit to Honeywell and official policy visit. He needs to take his Honey-Do List and give it a toss in the trash heap!

  14. Barack ” Hustlin’ ” Obama – fishing for more “barack bucks” – just gotta maintain the 1 percent rich’n’ famous lifestyle for Stringbean and Moo-Moo.

  15. Obama can save his money on the ads his campaign is running in Florida. In one of them, instead of him being raised by a single mother on food stamps, he was raised by grandparents worried about their Medicare.

  16. Wonder what his big “theme” will be today? I guess more “BLAME BUSH” with the rising Unemployment Rate……and we the tax payers have to foot the bill for him to travel all over and spew the lies and rhetoric to boot. Terrific.

  17. Does this man ever do any governing? You may not think Romney is the best conservative candidate, but the man will spend his time governing. He actually worked hard in private jobs and turning Olympics. Obama has floated all his life doing nothing hard and tedious.

  18. It”s almost 1:00PM. Where is the camera and where is his speech. Someone call the media and get the makeup artist in here. He is ready to turn his head and pose as if he looks important and has something intelligent to say. Gather around people and watch. This is your leader. Now one. two three, and bow.

    Same time same place tomorrow, Thank you.

  19. Slacker and Muumuu need YOUR money so they won’t lose their HOUSE (that would be the White house, which doesn’t actually belong to them)! Send Slacker and Muumuu your hard-earned dollars – now! While YOU still have a job!

  20. Go collect your money Mr. Marxist; if this country ever wakes up and realizes the damage that you have done and how long it will take to fix it all, you will need that money to defend yourself in a court of law. The list of criminal acts that you and your racist partner Holder have committed is outrageous. Right now you’re not at all concerned about accountability, but your day of reckoning is coming fast.

  21. On the road for 6 fund raisers – he gains the money from the fund raisers and we the lowly people have to pay for his trips around the country. Make him pay for his campaigning out of his pocket – not as the sitting president (leaves a bad taste in my mouth)

  22. Thanks for the info, Keith. November can’t get here soon enough.

    BTW – haven’t heard much lately about Moochelle’s va-cays. Is she still ripping-off the taxpayers for thousands? Has the WH gone silent on her travels because of the bad pub? I can’t imagine she has stopped galavanting around the world just because of a little bad pub or a terrible recession. Thanks.

  23. The economy is in a shambles, the unemployment rate is rising, and the IDIOT is going out to beg perverts for more money. What a pathetic waste of four years in the life of our country! Vote wisely in November. The fate of our children and grand-children plus the fate of our nation are hanging in the balance.

  24. Wow I can’t believe you Ron Paul people are still at it. Unbelievable. Ridiculous. Need I say more? The old, tiny alien cannot win ever…ever…ever.

  25. A better name for a place where O’Blamer hangs out would be The Bastard Farmer and just when did Crook County get culture as in Cultural Center?

  26. Obama’s kill list. Putin, Chavez, CAstro, Assad, immadinnerjacket, mugabe…all the same guy. He will have to be DRIVEN from power.
