POTUS' Day Ahead: Looking for gold out west

President Obama heads west Monday morning for a three day swing that will take him to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Denver. On the agenda is a heavy dose of fundraising as well as a string of events to push his revised version of the jobs bill.

CNN has also confirmed the president will unveil a series of measures within the authority of the executive branch that the administration argues will help struggling homeowners and cash-strapped students. The new policies, which do not need congressional authority to implement, will allow homeowners– who are close to underwater on their property - to refinance at a lower rate if they hold a federally guaranteed mortgage. Another initiative will help ease repayment of education loans, according to a senior administration official.

    One thing that I am having a hard time understanding, and I truly wish someone would explain: Why does a sitting President need to raise 1 Billion (I think that was the goal) in fund-raising? On other stories, the Obama supporters are quick to point out that the Republicans are the ones that are in it for the money, so once again I ask: Why???

      Read: George W.Bush and the Permanent Campaign...by Emily Jane Charnock.
      When hasn't a sitting president not run for re-election during his first term? Campaigning was the reason George W. Bush was in Florida reading "My Pet Goat" when the World Trade Towers were hit. Campaigns take a lot of money...advertising, travel, people.

    Obama's policies have resulted in Afganistan siding with Pakistan against America ... creating a Libya that goes sharia (with thousands of missing stinger missles) ... an Iraq which will be taken over by Iran ... and, the rest of the middle east, who we depend on for oil, to line up against us ... and, throwing our stongest mid-east ally, Israel, under the bus. In the mean time, Obama has diverted, blocked, or stopped all new oil drilling in the U.S.A., in favor of his impractical, inequitable, ineffective green pixie dust ... leaving America dependent on our adversaries for our energy ... and, all of this, while dramatically increasing our debt, and lowering our credit rating ...now, that's what I call terrible leadership. SAVE AMERICA ... DUMP obama as soon as possible !!!
