    Obama has held more fund raisers to date than the last 5 presidents combined.

    Obama has held more fundraisers than previous five Presidents combined as he visits key swing states on 'permanent campaign' | Mail Online

    I guess what he actually meant when he said he would change things is that he thinks it is more important for a president to get reelected than it is for him to do his job.

    obama hasn't functioned as president for a long time. I'm surprised that no other country has taken advantage of our being leaderless yet.

    He's been on perpetual campaign mode since he was immacculated January 2009.

    He hates the JOB...but loves the perks.

    Note that 'Hope and Change' of 2008 has now become "FOWARD" for 2012.

    The word 'FOWARD' is one used by all Communists/Marxists/Socialists worldwide.

    It expresses thier intent. Mao used it, Marx used it. Stalin used it as did many other notable tyrants through history.

    Heck, it's the parties he enjoys!! So much better than sitting in the boring Oval Office. I'll fund raise for the parties if he'll just move out of the White House. :)

    hey he has a right to campaign till his heart is content. I don't have to much trouble with that, but, its has a spill over effect, to wit; this will be the 3rd full year we have not had a budget, because Harry Reid not wishing to harm his own majority chances in the senate AND not wanting to expose Obama to an embarrassing vote and exposure for/to the globs of money that has and will motivate folks who are fed up with deficits means we just run without one.And the media is willfully asleep. 3 years? Seriously? come on.....

    And that's fine...is Obama going to reimburse the taxpayers for the questionable 'Offical Stops'?

    I wouldn't mind half as much, if he paid for the trips. Strangely enough, he managed to figure out a way to tie every single campaign trip to an "official" duty.
