Obama: At Least 74 Fundraisers Since January 2011 (to January 2012)

In the seventh paragraph of an article on page A7, the Washington Post acknowledges that a bit of administration spin is particularly unconvincing: “Aides said Obama is focused on governing, not campaigning, but he has held five fundraisers this week alone.”

Obama held 69 fundraisers between January 1 and December 1 of 2011, an average of one every five days.

Then again, perhaps Obama sees fundraising as a form of governing.

Looks like Obama is spending huge amounts of his time each week fundraising. He is literally not doing his job. He is campaigning, not governing.

[Obama] is campaigning, not governing.

He knows how to campaign. He doesn't know how to govern.

I suspect he’s not pulling in nearly the amount he did the first time around, so is trying to make it up by non-stop campaigning. The cost per plate goes up, the venues more sparse.

White House: Stimulus money? .. No we didn’t use Obama stash.. er, well I mean stimulus money we got 2.4 billion dollars all from donations in small bills. OK so we did do a lot of fundraising, OK that’s right. No stimulus money, no. Honest. What gave you that idea — what? You racist or something . . . .
