Obama has held more re-election fundraisers than previous five Presidents combined

CAMPAIGNER IN CHIEF?

Barack Obama has already held more re-election fundraising events than every elected president since Richard Nixon combined, according to figures to be published in a new book.

Obama is also the only president in the past 35 years to visit every electoral battleground state in his first year of office.

The figures, contained a in a new book called The Rise of the President’s Permanent Campaign by Brendan J. Doherty, due to be published by University Press of Kansas in July, give statistical backing to the notion that Obama is more preoccupied with being re-elected than any other commander-in-chief of modern times.

Campaigner in chief?

Barack Obama has been assiduously visiting swing states; he is pictured earlier this week speaking in Iowa Doherty, who has compiled statistics about presidential travel and fundraising going back to President Jimmy Carter in 1977, found that Obama had held 104 fundraisers by March 6th this year, compared to 94 held by Presidents Carter, Ronald Reagan, George Bush Snr, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush combined.

Since then, Obama has held another 20 fundraisers, bringing his total to 124. Carter held four re-election fundraisers in the 1980 campaign, Reagan zero in 1984, Bush Snr 19 in 1992, Clinton 14 in 1996 and Bush Jnr 57 in 2004.

More clear evidence of this President's absolutely failed Presidency.

God grant that we can remove this abject marxist ideolog from office, and send his admin, abettors, and cohorts in the House and Senate packing with him...on a rail.

And this also illustrates the abject bias of the MSM. This journalism and news comes to us from the UK...apparently it is not thought newsworthy here. But imagine if it has been W with such a record.

His campaign should pay for the use of Air Force 1 when he is on a campaign run.

I am optimistic that this is a sure fire indicator that, tied with lower actual cash contributions, nobama did not go over so well with those fools that voted their guilt in 2008.

How’d you like to be crew on Air Force One, knowing you’re reduced to doing donkey work lately?

The DLEMM - Dominant Liberal Establishment Mass Media - does not represent mainstream America. Stop perpetuating the myth that they do.

I’m hoping the same thing. They never saw 2010 coming. They wrote off the Tea Party as a bunch of yokels...but it resulted in the largest mid term turnaround in 100+ years I believe.

The still are in denial and I hope this election doubles down on that and brings in a anti-progressive/liberal/socialist/marxist Tsunami that wipes the most of them clean off the map.

We desperately need it, at all levels, so we can begin the serious work of taking our Republic back and restoring the Constitution to its propoer place in the Judiciary, legislative and executive branches at the Federal and State levels...clear down to the counties, towns and townships.

I am sure that any loyal service personnel, doing their duty, cringe as they have to coddel, salute, and do this President’s bidding...and I believe they are praying for us to do our duty and get him the heck out of dodge.

Obama's massive deficit, the debt ceiling, tax cuts, unemployment benefits, student loans, spiraling costs of ObamaCare, will all have to be addressed in the context of a fierce, polarized 2012 presidential election, the lame-duck congressional session that will follow and possibly an even-more-divided government in 2013.

===================================================

Ohaha had two major pieces of legislation which were supposed to fuel his reelection: (1) the trillion dollar stimulus which bombed, and, (2) the healthcare mandate which could soon be kaputski or partially disemboweled by the USSC.

==========================================

The 2012 Ohaha team are gonna use the 2008 Anita (Mao) Dunn strategy to manipulate voters, to downplay Ohaha's destructive policies ....and his scary plans for the next term. Dunn has said THEY and only THEY decided what the media should know about 2008 candidate Ohaha. The strategy is already in place---watch the Ohahas copping that "don't worry--we're harmless" attitude.

=========================================================

Obama's open mic slip in Russia revealed his hidden agenda. He didnt say "after the election, or “after the next election.” He said: “This is my last election" ....... reassuring the Ruskis that he'll then have "more flexibility after the election....”

Clearly Ohaha's certainty WRT staying in offce is not based on his approval ratings or massive opposition to his cockamamie polices----mandated healthcare, trillion dollar stimulus, using aborted babies' brains in lab experiments, giving himself massive executive power over Americans, co-opting religious beliefs, $4-Plus gas, 16% real unemployment, trillion dollardeficits, escalating inflation at the supermarket, the GSA spending scandal......to name a few.

No. Ohaha's certainty stems from his knowledge that he will stay in office---not by the will of the people---but by buying his reelection, using unprecedented vote fraud.

FIRST AND FOREMOST----WE MUST ATTACK THE MASSIVE
VOTER FRAUD OHAHA INTENDS TO USE TO GET REELECTED.

Remember, voter fraud is the Chi/mobs' specialty---do NOT underestimate Rahm and Axelrod (both running O's reelection), and Valerie whatsherface in the WH.

Let us not forget----the minute they hit the WH, the Chi/mob went into action: the WH Chi/mob took over the census---and now have all the CV they need to file phony FEC reports using stolen federal dollars as campaign contributions.

THIS MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD Obama's ex-COS "Wall Street Rahm" "suddenly" discovered he wanted to be Chicago's mayor---the little turd went before the mics and announced his campaign "raised $10 million in just a few weeks." Rahm also controlled the US Treasury as COS. This turd-o-crat knows where all the stolen Federal money is hidden....Wall Street knows how to make money disappear faster than a cream puff at a Weight Watcher weigh-in.

=================================================

Do not underestimate the cash the Ohahas/Chi-mob can come up with to fix the election......remember, these are the kingpins of Chicago politics. At one time, conscientious FEC investigators verified money was coming from legal citizens....but if Obama wins there will be no investigations. Remember, there are billions unaccounted for in Obama's stimulus packages (probably used in the last election cycle).....you can be sure the Ohaha kingpins have tons of money stashed away for 2012.

==================================================

POINTS TO PONDER

<><> author Dean Koontz estimates there's about $90 billion missing from the US Treasury.

<><> Ohaha's ex-COS Chi/Mayor Rahm Emanuel is running the reelection campaign----b/c this Wall Street turd knows where all the money is hidden. Rahm also controlled all US Treasury assets (at Obama's behest) when he was COS.

<><>The Ohahas took control of the census upon taking office----they have all the necessary CV to phony up contribution reports for the FEC.

=======================================

WATCH FOR PHONY FEC REPORTS The Ohaha's "say" they added $45 million to reelection coffers in February.....raised jointly by the DNC, "Obama for America" and two other joint fundraising committees — the "Obama Victory Fund" and the "Swing State Victory Fund,"...and whatever other voter frauds they dream up.

Cunningham, unportunately a majority of Americans still watch the ABC, NCB, CBS news outlets,,,and read the NY Times, Washington Post, etc., etc.. It’s not a muyth.

But, thankfully there are very serious inroads being made on cable with Fox, on the internet, and certainly on talk radio.

I pray that trend continues until those biased, propogandist networks and outlets are nothing but a sad memory...or they get new onership and change and do their jobs again.

As to the story...it broke in England with the author I have named here, Toby Harnden, who did indeed publish it yesterday in Engalnd on the 29th. Outlets here...but, IMHO, not these networks I have mentioned...are picking it up today.

The point is, if they were doing their job, this type of journalism is really low hanging fruit that they, the outlkets I mentioned, could have ferreted out months ago.

That they did not, as I said, is indicative of their abject bias.

That’s my point.

Hope that helps you understand my meaning. No need to get all upset about me for posting this from that perspective.

Exaclty...they will use that “it’s Bush’s fault,” as they stand upon the aft guard rails and their ship slips under the waves, yelling it out until the go under.

Americans are tired of it and see through it, IMHO, and hopefully will double down on 2010 theis November to make it so.

All well said...and worth repeating. Not only have his signtures acts failed, they are destroying the country.

Which of course is exaclty what they are meant to do. Obama is not an idiot or stupid. He knows exactly what he is doing and he is going about it with a will...to fundamentall change (read detroy) our Constitutional Republic.

The man is...

A Maxist ideolog who despises America

That the Gangster Government Media is utterly, 100%, completely and abjectly biased towards Democrats, Liberalism, and Socialism is nothing new.

Only the foreign media gives us the slightest little look into news, these days.

Well, there is that! LOL!

But, in all seriousness, like all narcissist tyrant wanna-bes, he feels he alone, and his plans (which have been proven wrong, disasterous, and genocidal over and over again for the last 150 years) can form a progessive utopia with him on top, and all of us ‘useless eaters” and “technical assist types” way down on the food chain.

To be used and discarded at will and with no more than a second thought.

A whole lot like King Geroge and the tyranny our forefathers ejected from this nation, the Sialmic Pirates, the Kaiser, Hitler and Tojo, the Communist premiers, etc., etc. we have fought throughout our history to keep liberty’s flame lit and alive.

History will always try and repeate itself...if we let it.

It wasn't the American MSM that noticed this - it was Brits. Odd how our press guys miss the obvious so often... could it be bias? /s

Fox gives us some; Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, Beck, etc. give us a lot...and you can find it if you look for it on the internet.

But the big netwokrs and newspapers continue carrying Obama’s and any other leftist’s water for them, and continue acting as America’s Pravda and Ministry of Public Enlightenment (what the Nazis called it).

They are failing. 2010 proved it. I pray to God in Heaven now here in November the American people double down on it, to the astonishment of these statist, tyrant wanna-bes, and their abettors in the media, and send them packing on a rail.

Picked some nifty info last night during an “independent” survey call and during the interview the guy told (not a routine part of the survey interview) me that with the exception of Kalifornia (who was big time for nobama) his group was hearing lots of disgruntle all over about nobama and he said more than 1/2 of the people saying they were basically GOP, more identified themselves as TEA PARTY!

It would be so nice if 2012 made 2010 look like a rehearsal.
