fund raising is his strong suit - and lying.

All Obama knows to do is campaign, he lives to campaign.

Governing? Meh, that’s too hard.

Chaos is not limited to Don Adams scripts. It’s the environment to slip in radical change, while everyone is focused on this or any other 100 disasters.

Have we heard anything about if there were any, and exactly how many, US casualties yet. Hard to believe that no family members knew they had a member on that flight.

Seems as though the airlines would have released a manifest to US Government by now to at least confirm the count.

More attention should be directed to those who would continue to give to such a man, rather than turning their backs on him....shunning him.

They are the enablers.

I'm happy he's fundraising and flapping his jaws about infrastructure.
Would you really want him to try and handle this problem?....Really?

Fund Raising must be code for something. No one wants to be seen with him. Where are the pictures of these events? Maybe he and Reggie are back together?

Stuffing his pockets and raiding the till, before he has to officially step down!!

Billy Boy and his tuna did the same thing.

I suspect for the Obama’s and Clinton's, it was always feast or famine in the income department... and their shameless, money-grubbing rapaciousness is a hang-over from when they were struggling to get onto some kind of ‘official’ footing within the US political scene-where they could grab and plunder at will and with complete approval of their peers who do the same thing. (For the Clinton's at this point it's no longer a hang-over but rather a habit)

Since they all have such a real aversion to actual work and are not exactly EMPLOYABLE... they have to take what they can WHEN they can. These are NOT typical American ‘wage earners’ with actual marketable and documented skills.

I can't get anyone to find out what airlines are flying the illegals around THIS country ... and that should be big news ... but no airline has yet to identify itself.

at least AFAIK

This should be illegal. I don’t care which party, but once in office, he should be working for the country, not his party.

Obama is an errand boy, hired to raise funds for the Marxists to finance the “change” we are currently undergoing. That is the real crisis.

As far as I’m concerned, the more golfing he does, the better.

Remember Benghazi?

He was AWOL that afternoon and all through the night but oh... he was present for the fundraising the next day.

And speaking of being AWOL, the man spends HOURS on fundraising but could not even spend a few minutes to call the President of Mexico to demand that our marine rotting in their jail for making a wrong turn be released.

Who is going to make a campaign issue out of this?

All of this 'fundraising' is really getting old: Obama keeps doing this while things fall apart

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.


Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

The right needs to name names (like the left did on prop 8) of those still attending and donating to him during these crises. They are contributing to his delinquency.

The lying, snickering bozo pretending to a President of the United States of America is just one half of the sleeze fundraising equation. How many disgusting business people would attend a fundraising function for the opportunity to buy influence. These scum empower the other scum.
Has any body seen that Hitlery is subbing for GW Bush at a financial conference? More proof that DC and the whole of our country's political establishment is a scum sucking dollar fest. No wonder we are collapsing!!

FOX news just reported that NO Americans were on that flight.

So the 23 was BS.

He gave a press briefing in the White House briefing room this morning, and I fully expected to see someone bring out baskets to pass around to all those in attendance to take up collections while he spoke.

All of this 'fundraising' is really getting old

Lately, vacations and fundraisers seem to be Obama's primary occupations and IMHO, his job title should be changed accordingly to The Fundraising Vacationer of The United States of America. His wife would qualify for the title of The First Lunch Lady of America.

He admitted early on that he was just the front guy, the guy with the ideas and that others would be implementing his ideas. Rare candor from a member of a religion that is required to lie to the infidel.

Valerie Jarrett told the dimrat media that baraq was ready to rule from day one. Never mentioned governing or presiding.

I heard he’s coming to the Seattle area (again!) this next week. He normally goes to a home in the Bellevue or Medina area (across Lake Washington from Seattle). One of the local radio hosts (fairly lib) says something like, Obama is coming to his Bellevue ATM again, but never finds the time to meet with the people.

It will be interesting to see what happens. For those that aren’t familiar with the area, there are 2 floating bridges (I-90 and 520) across Lake Washington that connects Seattle to the Eastside (including Bellevue). Lots of traffic crossing these bridges daily for work, etc. A lot of I-90 is going to be closed next week for work/repair, which means traffic will be snarled up even worse than normal. Plus, they close down on-ramps, etc. when he comes in. If he does his usual fund-raising on the eastside, traffic is going to be a nightmare!

Just heard on FNC the Won is going to Hollywood again next week, too. Wonder if it’s for fundraising, to try to buy his Emmy or both.
