(CNN) - President Obama isn’t only in Florida to talk energy at the University of Miami. He’s here to line his campaign coffers with an additional $4 million.
After his 25-minute speech wrapped, the president headed off to the first of three fundraisers of the evening in this politically crucial state: a $1,000 per-person rally at Miami’s Biltmore Hotel, according to a Democratic official.
The event – which is expected to draw 450 people – will feature entertainment by R&B singer Deborah Cox. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Florida Sen. Bill Nelson will also be in attendance.
Obama then heads to a more intimate setting – the home of Chris Korge, a prominent Miami lawyer who was formerly a big booster for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 bid. About 100 supporters are expected at that event, each of whom paid at least $15,000 to get in the door.
The president will then make the quick flight up to the Orlando area, where Dallas Mavericks star Vince Carter is hosting a $30,000 per-person reception at his home. About 70 people will attend that event.
Air force Ones costs $189,000 per hour...yesterday they had airports shut down for two hours (unannounced), flights were rerouted and passengers by the hundreds suffered for this arrogant fool.... meanwhile mz obama returns from her 16th vacation since they took office... expensive taxpayer funded vacation that is.
Lemme guess: you thought it was fine and dandy when Dubya used Air Force One to campaign in 2004.
Correction Dubya was campaigning in 2001 while listening to My Pet Goat.
@jean..hey you old bag (I know your 76, and yes I know you are black too)...you keep posting the fact that president Bush was sitting in the elementary class room listening to a student read when 9/11 occurred. Now isn't that horrible? That was 2001...quite along time before the reelection campaign started. You might try and remember the Bushes were championing excellence in education...Mrs Bush made this her lives work...here in the US and overseas. They we not pushing some phony school lunch program no one wants...you see the way out of poverty is moving from ignorance through education...if you can learn you can feed yourself properly...if your ignorant there is no hope.
And, since you brought up the Bushes did you notice Mrs Bush holding the shovel at the ground breaking for the Black History museum in DC a couple of days ago? Probably not...Jean, now that was grace and unification...not this racist divisive leadership we now have. NOW there is an example for us all to follow...but, nothing was real made of it, and that is sad... this is why we are in big big trouble..the powers now want us all ignorant and in capable to think for our selves. Your post indicate just how true that is.. God help us all.
Will this Link Work?
Yes, I am 76, but no I am not black.
Try reading: George W. Bush and the Permanent Campaign Trail, The Public Purpose Vol. III by Emily Jane Charnock.
Yes...for a fact he was campaigning in 2001. The volume records his campaign travels from 2001 through 2004.
The only racists we currently have are you and your ilk.....
who is dubya? Do you mean President George Bush? The President who did not seal his records, who actually had a resume, and who had a wife who championed education and equality...the one today who helped break ground for the Black History Museum in DC... Those were the days when we actually had an American loving couple in the White House and who were thoughtful of the hard working (and others too) American tax payer. The Bushes were the uniters..not the race card playing frauds we now have in office.
How can you call the Bush's uniters? You must have forgotten how he handled Katrina. As for playing the race card you are barking up the wrong tree. Not once to my knowledge has our President used the race card. He is way to smart for that. We do have a American loving couple in the White House you are just full of hate you can't see. Open your eyes because this President will be in office for 4 more years. OBAMA/BIDEN 2012
One thing good has happened in America. At least the racial bias carried by people such as you have come to forefront. This aspect was always present but remained shrouded in hypocrisy and deceit. At least now it is there in open and the society has to really judge and decide what it needs to do substantively to deal with it. Deal with people like you.
If you know who Dubya is then why the question? It seem's Bush's desert wandering leadership earned this diss-stinked title. Blame the Bushes the Saudi King's puppets for your oil prices and dependency. Blame current Republican't "leadership" for no alternate transportation initiatives in their states, no telecommuting initiatives, and no car-pooling or Van Pool initiatives.
Political has sure come to the forefront under this administration. BTW, it is not racial bias if a person does not like the policies this administration has shoved down our throats.
hahahha...WTH obama plays his race up..and it got him a long way didn't it. So, if it works WTH right? But folks, it is divisive and it is immoral. America is as color blind as it gets...just go elsewhere and find out for yourself... we did elect a black president...even overlooked his radical past, influences, and associates to do it...so come on, your race bating and name calling is very old hat...or perhaps you are just an ignorant relic.
Sadly, there are racists coming out of the woodwork! Those from the right are fairly obvious! Yet for SOME on the left, even intelligent criticism of this president is viewed as racist! That is fact! Entire movements (such as the Tea Party has been labeled by SOME on the left as racist! I'm a black male and even I have been labeled a racist on this very blog because I disagreed with certain policies of this president! Some of you are so quick to toss out the racist card that it is ridiculous!
you must be 76 too because you obviously have alzheimer's
Rather naive comment. Is he the first President who has used Air Force One for this purpose? Have you forgotten how many times Dubya used it for Election purpose. And even more sickening. How many times Dubya used it for his now famous personal vacations at his Waco ranch in Texas. Are you plain biased or are you blind as well.
Times have changed. It is now about wasteing money. Of course the libs won't get it because that is all they know to do.
Times haven't changed, it is just that the lunatic fringe like Nobrains2012 and John are more lunatic and more vocal. Remember they have been spoon-feed right wingnut idiocy by their corporate masters whose boots they lick daily.
yes John, lets have the president take the amtrack and see what impact it has on the cost...
The Presidents of USA have the privilege of using Air Force One for their use. What one needs to look at is how much they use it and for what. President Bush spent most of his vacations at his rance, not going around the country and the world spending extravagently like Obama and his family. All presidents need vacations. What you look at is where they go what they do, how much it costs the Tax payer. Look at the details folks, they speak for themselves.
Friends, lets all plan on sending Obama into retirement.
john...yes times have changed...because we have let useless wars bankrupt our country but don't lose sight who spent that money. get over it...obama will be elected again
Don't you love these people that call the President of the United States of America "an arrogant fool". I would love to see these people get into a debate with him or even hold a civil conversation with anyone politically aware. I would love to see these people run for public office, perhaps in their own neighborhood. Perhaps they have what it takes to chair a neighborhood watch program or something similar. I would love for these people to demonstrate something akin to reasonable thought and communication skill.
Wouldn't it be great if these political armchair quarterbacks that have no tact or communication prowess do something other than insult those who are way out of their league politically,emotionally, intellectually, and morally.
Please,find something intelligent to do with yourself.
You are crazy or drunk!!!!!
Crazy? or Drunk?
OR OUT OF GAS?
Nice comments November2012. Don't expect the hateful libs to understand. They continue to spew hate more and more and try to justify it. They can't stand it when they are called on it. I have been called more hateful names than I can count by them on this site. These people are cowards who would never say face to face what they say in these sites (from their basements, dressed in their PJ's). They can't stand it when people disagree with them and they really can't stand losing – like they did in the last election and like they are about to do in the presidential election.
John I'd meet with you if you need some sense spoken to you in your "face to face". Let me know what your schedule looks like and we'll make it happen.
Um, aren't you the one being 'hateful' here? Sorry to 'call you out' on it buddy.
I dont blame them...they just lack reasoning and they are comfortable in their own minds...can't fault them for that. But, there is an end to the road for this..a time when even they will understand their foolishness drove them off the cliff... there is nothing new in the world but the history you have yet not read (Harry Truman).
keep trying John, Nov and other functionally depressed GOP/Tea Pots. It is hilarious to me that you guys realize you have nothing on your side of the debate to support, but only criticize President Obama. Keep trying because the majority of all americans prefer President Obama over the clown car your party rolled out.
Never will any one of you pathetically depressed people stand up with a reasonable argument or defense of any candidate the GOP has put forward....Why?...Why?....WE ALL KNOW WHY....YOU'VE GOT NOTHING, ZERO, ZILCH, NADA....just childish insults, mistatements, misfacts and tomfoolery. It is consistent with the poor excuse that has become the GOP/Tea Pot un-american travesty.
I know..."we hate libs, and their communist, muslim, un-american, socialist, fact based arguments....who needs facts anyway"? Just keep lying to yourselves as if you are at all relevant. Keep lying to yourselves that the majority of people in this country are going to all of a sudden want to go back a revisit the pain, suffering and strife your band of idiot politician brought against this country, and then having the temerity to refuse to help President of Obama, think that the american people are stupid enough to give those clown GOP candidates a chance to lead this country....
I have these words for you John, How-wee, NoBrains " HA, I LAUGH AT YOU and can't wait for you to fade back into the background of this nation's history as the rest of us press forward towards success with President Obama.... HATE IT, LOVE IT , BUT YOU CAN'T IGNORE IT....Obama/Biden 2012 (show me a fox poll that doesn't agree) LOL
Oh and P.S. NoBrains...My suggestion is you better leave jean2009 alone, You are way out of your league trying to marginalize who and what she is....Just start with ...A HECKUVA LOT SMARTER THAN YOU
Look at Trace!
Trace likes to Rant.
Rant, Rant Rant, goes Trace.
and Rant, Rant, Rant she goes!
Trace, can you say anything nice?
Trace, I am not a hater. I simply don't agree with policies put forth by this (and the last) administration. Call me all the names you want – sticks and stones. Maybe because you are a lib you may not know that saying. I have to admit Trace – it sure take you a bunch of words to say nothing. We all know it is because you have nothing you can defend with BO. He has been a failure. It is 3 years later and all you libs can do is spew hate, class warefare. I guess you libs have given up on the valuing diversity thing...
Where did you get the figure of $189,000 per hour? Just wondering.........
Today, it cost me over $80.00 to fill my tank at the gas station ... then, I came home to a 12.6% increase in my wife's and my health insurance ... plus, my home dropped dramatically in value. In the meantime, there's no oil drilling, no pipeline ... Iran is threatening to choke off oil ... and, Obama's pitching algae and wind mills, while spending all his time campaigning, so that he can BUY THE PRESIDENCY. WAKE UP PEOPLE ... it's time to kick this self serving pretender out of the White House !!!
Hey How – WEE, put your big boy pants on and quit your whining. I know this can't be the 1st time you've experienced high gas prices. Better yet, instead of complaining, please explain which GOP Bozo the Clown Candidate you are supporting for president and how they're gonna fix it.
Ok...That should take you a lifetime to come up with something other than insults for President Obama. Why? ...Why? Well, the fact is, you're not too smart in the head...That's Obvious!
When they come for you,,,,
Be sure to have Insurance!
Cute little logo there, but NOPE/ And, the other postings here are correct. Under GWB's regime, we lost almost Everything. Now Mr.Obama comes in to take the wheel of the Titanic and look what comes outa the woodwork. Obama 2012 Elizabeth Warren 2016-2024
YOU PEOPLE ARE SO LUCKY TO HAVE A PRESIDENT LIKE OBAMA, HE HAS DONE WONDERS FOR ALL OF YOU. MAY GOD BLESS HIM AND AMERICA.
Obvious troll. Excellence in education is gained with dedication and expenditures, same as a strong military requires a lot of bucks [even with its massive waste.] Bush was a great "uniter" too, the nations of the world were just lined up to offer assistance in Iraq, of course the word out on the street was "if you're not with us you're against us." Applied the same principle to domestic policy too, sort of explains the deep division in the country.
That's why he is the president of USA and not a dimwit, whining, old hag like you.. Now go do something useful for the country..
Obama continues to sell out America, in order to get reelected.
God bless 'Merrica!
You are a moron. Obama is the first president to ever use Air Force 1. All others before him used red rider wagons pulled by whatever idiot is distributing the substance you are inhaling.
Obama continues to tell Americans that 2 + 2 = 5 ... and, there's always a bunch of stupid people out there (and posting here), who believe him ... and, are ready to tell the rest of us that he is absolutely right ... and, insult us if we disagree.
Clearly November 2012 is an idiot. Where to start Dick Cheney had his hand up George Bush's @ss and that pretty being nice. We all know the billions and billions the Bushwack Administration spent on a needless war in Iraq and same in Afghanastan, but one thing I will give to Bush is his will to defeat the "enemy" little did he know Dick Cheney and his me first propaganda. Bottom line is Obama has had to fix Dubya's stupid policies and the debt he left Americans in.
Ms obama is trying to squeeze as much as she can off of taxpayers' backs...her daughter is in Mexico with TWENTY FIVE secret service men guarding her...what the heck is that? if it's such a dangerous place, then send this little moron and her friends to Cape Cod and have two secret service men guard her...the obamas are a bunch of low class, opportunists who hopefully will be thrown out in Nov 2012
Way to go Obama. You need to do more of this to shut up those dumb ass Republicans.
You have done an amazing job saving us from another depression, saving the auto industry, ending the war in Iraq and getting Osama Bin Laden.
I wish you well and hope you bring in many more dollars to fight those nasty Republicans.
NOvember2012......YOU HAVE GOT TO BE THE BIGGEST HATER ON THIS BLOG. YOU MUST BE JEALOUS PEOPLE WOULDNT COME LISTEN TO YOU FOR FREE. PATHETIC A**HOLE.
No, NOvember 2012 is just stating fact. The airports were shut down, and Ms. Obama did come back from her 16th expensive vacation. Fact is Fact. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.
whats the matter? You better put your moms lap top away and put your clothing back on...your mom is pulling in the driveway. hahahaha
You are becoming more and more of a cartoon character everyday. You couldn't post a coherent statement, or a discernable fact based argument if your very life depended on it .......Keep trying genius...even a blind squirrel can find a nut every now and then – LOL
The libs are proven haters as exemplified by the comments here and other sites like this. We all know it happens because you libs have nothing to actually promote because everyone knows BO has been very bad for this country. And, before you libs spew more hate, Bush was bad for this country also.
...whah whah, whah, ....somebody please make those hateful libruls stop us with their fact-based arguments and just leave us gud ole trailer park amurkin's alone....Ok gladly, much like a the Doe Doe bird, your kind will soon become extinct...similar to bird droppings on a side walk...Just rinse off and let dry. Obama/Biden 2012 – Hate it, Love it, but you can't ignore it.
Trace thinks she is funny while she Rants.
Whah, Whah, Whah, says Trace.
Trace is funny when she Rants!
Trace – please put forth a "fact based argument". It will be a nice change from all the hate you spew.
Can you please discuss the issues instead of cursing and caling people names. Are you able to discuss the issues facing the country, Sir ?
You talk about haters ... is it o.k. for Republicans to trash the Obama kids, like you vicious haters did to the Palin children ??? You're a bunch of disgusting HYPOCRITES !!!
Yeah....Now that soulds like your best argument yet for america voting in one of the Bozo GOP candidates for president....the Libs were mean to us...making them Hippo-CRITS.....Oh the shame and shock of us lefties. To think that President Obama has suffered un-precedent insults during SOTU speeches, tarmac rants, name calling, bullets fired at the WH, more threats than any president ever before, but rather look at how mean the lame stream media has treated a quitter gov, Silly Sarah. Yeah right ! Get a grip on yourself How-wee...This is the real world and being the number one turd blossom isn't all that becoming...but's that what you are vying for.
She likes to Rant.
Trace Rants alot!
Teace likes to Rant about Clowns,,, Bozo is her favorite clown!
Will Trace RANT about the cost of Gas??
Yes. Obama will win by a landslide of historic proportions and we will continue on through 2024 with Elizabeth Warren. Even though it is lost, the GOP should really stop at this point and do triage. It's called 2016. Or 2024.
You condescending liberals, along with your pompous poor excuse for a President, are traitors to America ... and traitors to our constitution.
He's gotta hit up some ragers and blow some coke. It's a lot easier than fixing America, this is what you get for electing a black president.
I wonder how many of B.O.'s Occupy friends were invited?
I wonder who B.O. really works for?... The American People... or his donors?
I would love to see CNN and the other liberal news outlets "Fact Check" the "0 bama" thugs running this country. And NOvember2012 is only reporting the truth and noting how much of our tax dollars are being spent on white house perks . Something obama2012 can't take. although very typical of those who have serious gaps in their DNA.... Do a fact check and then tell me who's a pathetic A**Hole. I think it be you...most likely you're a perfect A**Hole .
We've heard of large donors from both the Democratic and Republican party. Yet, the Media continues to state that some GOP members have disconnected from the public when it come making bets (as form of speech or emphasis, not a tangible deal) or when it comes to misinterpreted or misrepresentation of a tax return. $1,000 per person, $15,000 to get in the door, $30,000 per person reception? Where is the demonizing of Obama by the Media now? These numbers are well over the average American. Call it Obama disconnecting or don't you dare demonize the GOP over it.
Hey America, look! something shiny! Pay no attention to my screw-ups, it's uhhh, their fault. Did I mention I, uhhhh, inherited this economy? Did I mention I killed Osama? Did I mention that more freebies are, uhhh, on the way? Want a free kitchen? How about some free contraception? At no cost to you, of course! We'll make those pathetic bitter clingers and, uhhhh, evil rich people pay for everything you ever wanted. Don't even worry about it....
sounds like a good fund raising strategy to me. but every president does this...its in their already approved budget. get over it.
Will someone please tell me why Obama needs to "campaign"? For Petie's sake, we already know the guy! lol
he probably needs about $4 million to fight all of the insane lies the GOP have been spewing for months!
Another ignorant comment with nothing to back it up. What happened, Maddow and Sharpton had no ideas for you last night?
No, it;s that Tampons will soon be outlawed and the slime off the back of Newt will gloss over your eyes and I make 120,000$ a day, you factoid, you!!! Oh, and LET THEM EAT KOCH !!!
That is just Rhetoric, Jake.
Please outline the lies and what the truths are. Can you ? I bet, not.
At least we know where his donations are coming from-unlike Rove and Koch Bros., AKA John Birchers, are getting theirs!!
You don't know where the money is coming from, but you list the names of people the money is coming from???
Awesome, Mr. President. Keep up the great work.
good one, i didn't know that obama waas actually doing work. last i checked he was campaigning for the next election instead of doing his f*cking job.
What a Joke! It is hard to help people like you, in an advanced stage of ignorance.
are your lips gettingt sore?
There are a lot of Cubans in Florida that do not like
Obummer's connection to Cuba's Dictator Castro and Venezuela's Dictator!
Think Latinos will vote for Obummer?
Does Obummer sound like Florida's US Senator Marco Rubio?
Think again about Latinos voting for Obozo!
Go Mr. President....the Republicans will have one heck of a time deafeating you, Sir! They have alienated the middle class, the poor and the hispanic, what is left is the rich....top 1 percent, which include Romney, Gringich, and Santorum! One can see why they are against the rich paying more....they'll lose too much money.
your glasses must be smudged...I have never seen people so upset with govt and divided....and Barry will pay the price.
That would be President Obama to you ; ya big putz
That would be Barry Sotero or
Barak wHoseHinney or
Soon to be Jailed Obummer,,,
Ya Big Putz!
How does it feel to be called a Putz, Trace, err Jean, err Liberal-BOTS?
GOP/Tea Party has also alienated women. So yes who is left to vote for the Gop prospects except the wealthy 1%???
In 2008 Nationally, all Latino demographic sub-groups voted for Obama by heavy margins. According to the national exit poll, 64% of Hispanic males and 68% of Hispanic females supported Obama. Presiden Obama will indeed be re-elected...the Gop doesnt have a snow ball's chance in hell.
BS, the Tea Party has almost 40% woman and many of their leaders are women. Try again. The Tea party loves this country, unlike the people who feel this country needs to change to something else – you know, something like Greece. It doesn't bother you libs that almost 50% of the population lives off the other 50% and pays nothing? How the heck can you libs complain about someone paying millions in taxes, but not address this issue?
@ John...Update...the last I heard the Tea Party has fizzled and died.....All they were anyway was a bunch of confederate flag waving dorks who wanted to expand the KKK.
Let's address what had fizzled and died, shall we?. I know some of you lefties hoped no one brought this up but here we go...OWS! Remember how Michael Moore posed as a 99%er? Remember how Pelosi and crew leaped on that bandwagon? Remember how even the most liberal of cities (Oakland and DC) got rid of them? Remember the stories of sexual assaults and drug use? Now I realize something some of you liberals don't. I realize there were some in OWS who actually wanted to positively change the political, and economical landscape. That would be something SOME of you lefties have failed to credit the Tea Party with.
Your focus was on flags and posters and the ignorant fringes rather than the good hearted many! Sadly Yes they existed! Yet when you talk about OWS, you NEVER mention riot police, pepper spray, arrests, general anarchy, drugs, sexual assaults, evictions even from liberal cities, the poser Michael Moore! All of that existed as well! Why don't you talk about that?
You want to declare the Tea Party dead? Fine! Yet realize, that if they are dead and gone, they STILL outlasted OWS! That is all (for now)!
Your comment is awaiting moderation.

In 2009, 2010, and 2011,,,,
the TEA PARTY gave a SHELLACKING to the Marxist/DemocRATS....
All 3 YEARS!
Causing the Marxist/DemocRATs to lose the House and MANY Senetor Seats,,,,
and many State Legislature Positions,,,, and State Governors, too!
The TEA PARTY
will give another SHELLACKING to the Marxist/DemoRATS in 2012.
Mark my words....
Oooops,,, Obozo is the worst president in the history of the USA (even behind Jimma Carter)!
As an aside.... TRACE's favorite Clown is Obozo!
Hey "Tubby the Tuba Texas", how many of the middle class, poor, and Hispanics do think showed up at the $1,000 per-person rally at Miami’s Biltmore Hotel, the $15,000 visit to the home of Chris Korge, or the $30,000 per-person reception at the home of Vince Carter?
You Democrats are living in a fantasy world. President Obama is a big-money, Chicago liberal Democrat whose only qualification to be the Chief Executive of our country seems to be that he is black. According to you, anyone who criticizes him is doing so based soley on "hate" and "racism". If he were a white man (or a Republican) the whole country would be up in arms about how much worse things have become since he was elected. But instead, it is all George Bush's fault, as will be the next 4 years if our current incompetent president were to be re-elected.
"Home, home on the range, where the deer and the antelope roam" la-di-dah...LOL, ya better wake up, President Obama is popular and well liked amongst both everyday people and the well-to-do. Might as well, quit your cryin' and roll on over to the local trailer park for your bingo nite seating, as that's the best the GOP / Tea Pots have planned this election cycle.
Trace ... I'm sure that you and Jean must have brown noses, from following obama so closely. You two aren't even bright enough to wonder what it would be like to have your own brain, instead of blindly and mindlessly obeying every command of your lord and master, barack obama.
LOL How-wee, you keep bringin a mouse to a dog fight....Oh pathetic one...I challenge you just once to regurgitate a coherent idea or even tacid support for one of those jokes called a GOP candidate. Where are the ideas genius? What do you have other than spit ball junior high insults?..... This is why you should have "lernt ya sumptin'" instead of becoming a proveyor of cartoon comments.
Check out this Trailer Trash!
TRACE ... you rant and insult people here, to compensate for your obvious, and extreme impotence. We all pity you, and we are very sorry that you were born with such a small penis ... in fact, your penis is so small, if you had another one, it would be lonely. Apparently, when you were circumcised, they threw away the wrong part.
TRACE ... you rant and insult people here, to compensate for your obvious, and extreme impotence. We all pity you, and we are very sorry that you were born with such a small organ ... in fact, your organ is so small, if you had another one, it would be lonely.
How-wee, I'm not able to quantify your cro-magnin diatribe, into any the other than reactionary defense mechanism. Yet again, you've shown yourself un-equipped to argue the facts. Listen, I'm not trying to insult your intelligence, but its becoming more evident that you may be seriously lacking in that area. Tell ya what....prove me wrong...Spend a post or two writing about a counter-argument to something President is proposing. In other words, if the president proposes bailing out GM....You say something like; The best approach to dealing with GM should have been to encourage private investors to buy bonds on the open market with an agreed ROI (return of investment) to be paid at " X " percent compounded over 10 years. Meaning, the longer it took to repay the private investor, the higher the interest dividend to repay."
See how easy that was? And though this is just off the top of my head, and I actually agree with what the president, I'm still able to make a counter argument, without calling the president names, or saying "I hate libruls" Come on Howard, man up...quit actually like a piss-ant. Show for once you are intellectually able to argue a position....Ok?
Trace, you're clearly a moron. No further explanation needed, your words speak for themselves.
I have a word for "November 2012" and that is: you should be ashamed of the day u were born. You are such an embarrassment to the sane Americans. Can the President ever do anything right? I bet if unemployment is reduced to 5%, someone like you will still have faults in the figure.
I wil strongly encourage you to ponder on your contribution before you hit "send". If you really aspire to be great in life, you must learn how to appreciate true and genuine greatness.
Do me a favour, share this piece with your folks and let them advice you because you sure going to need them.
Yomi ... in response to your question ... NO, it doesn't appear that the President can do anything right !!!
considering that expert opinion comes from your royal stupid-ness, How-wee, then its rather obvious the President is doing just fine. How's That?
HOPE HE RAISES MORE. unlike the spuer pacs most of his money is coming in the old fashion way. When the repos have on real issue to use against the president they just make stuoid remarks. Obama 2012
I guess you missed it. BO had to resort to Superpacs. SO, I guess your comments are inappropriate, unless you are talking about all the candidates in both parties.
You obama stooges think that if you continue to defend obama, and slobber over every noise he utters, that he will appreciate you ... but, obama only cares about himself ... and will only keep you losers around as long as he feels you are useful to him. Once that ends, he'll throw you gullible fools under the bus, along with the scores of others he has discarded.
...aww, Lil' John / How-wee, it so stinks being you and part of the American Loser of a party known as the GOP/Tea Pots. Where do you pathetic people post your support for any one of the GOP/Tea Clown bozos runnin' for President? We're having trouble finding those posts(?)....where is the support for some of those "Con-sur-vu-tive ideas"???? Oh yeah, that's right....americans haven't forgotten ...Party of No/ The knuckle draggers have nothin'...I mean zilch! How difficult it must be promoting utter stupidity. Keep trying guys, you are both about as popular as a fart in a crowded telephone booth (out of style and totally putrid)
Obama is very accomplished at separating Americans from their money ... but, he's a horrible President !!!
Thank You Elmer Fudd for those words of wisdom. Now if you don't mind, in your absence, we'd like to have an intelligent conversation....you may now leave the stage
time to shut this mess down.. he bilks the taxpayers for all his campaign trips.. but god help another candidate that flies somewhere on someone else's dime.. they prosecute them.....
Several million dollars gone today due to his campaigning to raise money for his campaign.. how about paying for your own travel mr spend it all?
....mmm, you may have a great story with this...absolutely nobody ever knew the president was in violation of FEC laws. Better call them right away and get that investigation underway....This has to be the first time a president has ever done this before. You will be famous and loved by every depressed, angry and frustrated GOP/Tea Potty fool for having found this out.
Ok, before calling the FEC, get measured for your straight jacket because that's about the extent of information they will ask you for. LOL
What the libs don't get is this is not about BO, this is about the whole corrupt system. When a white guy gets in this year we will be all over his case if he acts the same way BO does. The only difference will be that the libs will be with us.
What, are you talking about? Racism has blinded you. If Pres. Obama acted as arrogant and dismissive as any of the GOP Candidates you would call him un American and be outraged. The GOP is playing you for a fool and you are loving it apparently. But the rest of us are laughing at the hysterical mania of the Right. That is when we are not on the verge of losing our lunch watching your hypocrisy.
so, this tells us alot about your childhood growing up. You weren't very popular huh? Really regret that. But promoting fear, hatred and yes, racism won't be your ticket to fame, but rather most likely increase your profile as being the best choice to return back under the rock from which you came.
Blame the Supremely stupid Court for the funny money raisers. Its estimated now that the election results are at the mercy of five wealthy men rather than millions of voters. The President must now waste time and treasure on putting them back under their palatial rocks.
I am a liberal, and I do support our President. Do I support everything he does? No. Do I think that anybody who criticizes him is a racist? No? The beautiful thing about our country is that we allow people to have a choice. A choice for who they want to support. A choice for who they want to vote for. We should never attack or criticize people for exercising their choice. Afterall, we would not want them to do that to us. That goes for liberals and conservatives.
With that said, we cannot continuously criticize and place blame on politicians for doing the very things that countless politicians have done before them. Have multiple presidents (not just Obama) used Air Force One for fundraising travels, yes. Have first ladies (not just Michelle) used government dollars for vacations, yes. This is nothing new, and something that will not be changed until the people place the right legislators (Democrat and Republican) in the Congress to force these changes.
What we must remember, is that the very freedoms and abilities that we enjoy today (while not perfect), are in place because of the hard work and dedication from Americans on both sides of the aisle. They have been in place before Obama, impacted one way or another by his administration, and will continue to change under the presidents and congressmen that follow him.
I want to commend you on the being the only person in these comments that is not driven/blinded by hate, racism, bigotry, or just plain ignorance. It is not just the Democrats, or the Republicans. It is all of them. The system is, if not broken, then haning by a thread. All of you need to quit calling each other names like some 3rd graders on the playground, and quit listening to the hate mongers in the media. They are giving you half truths and mis-leading info to get you fighting amongst yourselves, so you can't see as they (Politicians from both sides, and the media, and the uber-wealthy robber barons) turn you into serfs for their oligarchy. Wake up, shut up, and vote out ALL incumbents. We must take this country back, and the politicians don't want you to have it. OF the PEOPLE, BY the PEOPLE, and FOR the PEOPLE!!!
Get this Republicans, Presidents fly around in Air Force One. You act like Pres. Obama invented government, campaigning and everything a POTUS does. Please dial down the hate and hysteria. It is making you look small, petty and ignorant.
LOOK?....actually they are small, petty, racist, and ignorant.
yeah! More welfare! More spending! More food stamps! More debt! HOPEY CHANGEY!!! Yeah lets have more leeches off the taxpayer!
keep raising money it drives the stupid repos nuts to see you doing more than their superpacs. the president has raised more money from the average citizen than ol mitt and his super pacs. Of course the president has one now big deal 2 million raised. Look what the average american did. Way to go Mr President Obama 2012
"Judy" You speak of all these hateful traits as if from experience. Take a look in the mirror and you'll see everything your hateful mouth is espousing and more.!!!!!!!
the average...hahaha now that would include those who are a part of the Tea Party...you know the working class...is average to you the well fare collectors...the moochers?
Just what the GOP wants, ~ us turning against ourselves. IT is called....Class Warfare. Hey, read 1984. Just for kicks and kismet. There is a real problem of poverty in America, ya know, people are suffering. Perhaps you are a tea party type? In that case, we cased it ourselves. Boot straps and all, trickle down, right? Read what Kansas has in store for its new tax plan. Read about Stockton, Ca...OPEN YOUR EYES.
Judy, I don't understand why any of the candidates need to raise so much money. Complain about the Republicans using Super-Pacs, and then the President uses them also. Complain about the Republicans being backed by the 1%, and then there are stories about the 1% backing the President. I also don't understand why people get upset by someone calling the President Barry, but have no problems referring to former President Bush as "dubya". The political environment is divided because the individual voters are divided, which leads to more division between the major parties. To stop all of this, maybe we should all embrace AmericansElect (americanselect.org) Log on, read the questions that every candidate has answered, and see how well they really stack up to what you believe in, it might surprise you.
"judy", what "average citizen" are you referring to? I do not know any average citizens that cough up $15,000 or $30,000 a plate. I do know plenty of average citizens who believe in God, hard work, and paying taxes and who do not believe Obama is God's greatest gift to mankind.
um Ric, just because YOU say, doesn't make it so. Haven't you heard, the 99%ers side with President Obama? Only a complete dunce believes otherwise. Its rather obvious, President Obama needs donations from well to do americans to combat the GOP "Hate Slingin" machine. Fortunately the majority of the electorate is smart and can actually think. Its up to you and your party to find more of the brain dead to support the ridiculous
Trace, you have no idea what you're talking about. 99% don't agree with Obama. It's more like the 47% that don't pay any federal income taxes, of which I am sure you are one. .As for your ignorant comment about how stupid Republicans are, more college graduates identify themselves as Republican than Democrat. Most Republicans don't live in trailers and don't sit on the front porch playing the harmonica. You should open up your tiny little world, get out of the ghetto, and go meet some real people. And get a job while you're at it too.
I am part of the 99%.
Obummer is a Commie, and
I am an American,
TRUE Americans do not even think of Communism as a Way of Life...
If you CLAIM to be an American and you support Communism, then you are a LIAR!
I am part of the 99% and I am an American.
Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness,,,
NO MORE SLAVERY to the IRS and Obummer and the Commie Free-LOADERS!
If you Google the Dow Jones Industrial average from 1970-2012, you'll see the "boom" started during Ronald Reagan's time in office, and afterwards, when Bush 41 succeeded him. Free markets, supply-side economics, Reaganomics, trickle-down economics...whatever you call it, it works. That's why no president since Reagan has substantively altered that formula........until Obama.
Its a celebration when Obama brings in money. Anyone else its corruption:)
Nice when you have the pravda media -
...what an extensive vocabulary you have there. I'd bet you are admired throughout the entire GOP/Tea Knuckle-Dragging community for your articulate, yet reasoned arguments. How long did it take for you to learn how to spell that? How frustrating it must be for you to realize intelligent people wouldn't find your post very persuasive, thought provoking or even useful in this complex narrative of political debate. Sorry , you lose....but don't go away mad, Just go away
Why in the world do you want Central Planning AND HIGHER TAXES AND Tyranny?
If you are in one State and do not like what they are doing in that State,,,
then you can move to a FREEer State.
(Such as they are doing FROM California, Illinoise, and New York.
All 3 States are TAXING MORE from the People, and,
All 3 States are losing Taxable-folks to the FREEer States
(Because they do not want to pay HIGHER TAXES))
CENTRAL PLANNING NEVER WORKS,,,
AND SHARE-THE-WEALTH TAXES makes folks move to OTHER COUNRIES or STATES!
You guys all act as if you know who will win. If you're that sure you wouldn't even be posting here. If I knew that kind of thing for sure I'd be placing some bets so I could make some serious money! I don't know who's going to win, we have the whole spring and summer to go yet and that's a long time in the political world. I don't believe any of these polls either, how can 1,000 people possibly reflect what the whole country will do? Like they say in sports, "That's why they play the games".
Joey, I know you and the GOP/Tea people hate facts and the whole "knowledge base" thingy that provides the platform for polling, but I really hate to bust your bubble and tell you that historical sampling to determine outcomes is more accurate than assumptions from someone like yourself. Most of the analysts have advanced degrees, and I would trust their determinations infinitely more than yours.
So if you don't mind me saying....its better to be quiet and let others think you're a fool, than it is to open your mouth (in this case offer your opinion) and remove all doubt. Have a nice day – Ok?
You just proved your last statement as true by opening your own mouth. Insulting others does not guarantee the outcome of events. I am not assuming anything as I just said in my previous post, I will simply watch events unfold. You need to lay off the kool-aid.
Joey, I regret having offended you. But you specifically said "...how can 1000 people possibly ...." You did say that! There it is in black and white. And much to your statement about "if you knew who was gonna win, ...make some serious money"....There is a trade where people are doing that already. The point being, the polls indicate that President Obama is likely to win re-election, and I'm very happy about that because I trust him to run this country...yeah, if you want to use your little faux news "kool aide drinking" bumper sticker rant, Fine. But seems to me that you don't have anything worth supporting and what you'll be drinking is stricnine (SIC). But it doesn't have to be that way. If you took the time to think about what's best for this country, you would conclude that President Obama has taken a horrible mess left by his predecessor and turned it around. It makes no sense to dislike Obama and continue with the band of idiots that are just angry because of either politics, self loathing, guilt, racism or all of the above. Americans are better than that...I mean, Real americans. There are some on this board that are beyond being reasonable. But maybe just maybe you're someone that cares more about this country than to remain in that camp? What do you think?
Posted on Dee, I want your dog so badly I am tempted to sneak in and do smhteoing felonious. What IS he? Where can I GET one? I want one JUST LIKE THAT ONE, crap and all. And that's love, my friend.
Wheres the outrage from the liberals that obamas money is comin g from the dreaded 1% ers?
Wheres the outrage that obama is taking money from suprepaks?
Oh thats right, hes a democrat so lies and corruption are good-
Its going to be a long summer....high gas prices, war, and no jobs. And obama really thinks he is going to get another term. The GOP will soon unify and there is a ground swell in this country that will be obvious soon...this fact(ground swell against the left) will be presented to the extend the media will not be able to squash them and obama will be seen as who he is...a radical marxist, racist, and American hater. And a new day will emerge and America will prosper... God Bless America!
...in the famous words of the GOP St. Reagan.....well, Jerry, there you go again ...LOL. Why don't you just start off by saying the sun will rise in the West tomorrow? It would have about as much credibility as your last post.
High Gas prices headed into the summer is a historical phenomena – DUH ! !
No jobs???? – HuH? Can we at least say that we've gone from losing 750K jobs per month under the last GOP administration, to added 3.7 million under President Obama? ...Oh That's Right, Facts and intellect is reviled amongst you and the brethren of GOP stupid-Dumb. Well, keep trying...pretty sure there must be more idiots somewhere willing to follow
I try to read your posts, but once I get to the hate I stop reading. SO far what I have gotten from you is pathitic rant, "hate, LOL, "hate" faux news, bla, bla, bla...
According to the Saturday Evening Post this week we should be paying $7.00 a gallon for gasoline now...if we want to really save this country from its overload of spoiled misguided fools....like Nobrains, Howee, Jerry, john and 1stPaintBallSgt.
Considering the fact that most of the rest of the world is currently paying about $8 per gallon who do you think is going to be the highest bidder for that Koch Brother XL pipeline Canadian crude when it gets to the gulf and that U.S. tax-free International Trade Zone?
Maybe the Saturday Evening Post is a poor source of information if they are making a statement so different from the actual fact.
Trace, thank you so much. We need you.
Democrats insist on playing with their race card.
NEWS FLASH: YOUR RACE CARD HAS EXPIRED!!!
...huh?...and this is from that giant treasure trove of knowledge called your thoughts? Wow, what a profound thought ! Was this intended to influence the political discourse ? (NOT) More like a pathetic rant LOL....Is that the best you have.?...Well, faux non-news strikes again, with its continuous "Non-intellectually curious" followers. Hey, try this...Argue FOR something that makes sense. This is the hard part for the GOP/Tea Pots...Include a Fact... Post a thought or an idea of what you think.... not what you read off a faux non-news bumper sticker.
A Pathetic Rant?
Rants go on forever and ever,,, sort of like what you are doing Trace!
Looks like you are RANTING, Trace!
Trace, the Ever-Ready Bunny that Rants, and Rants and Rants (Forever it seems!)
You sexy Liberal
You Ever-Ready Liberal
WHEN TRACE WAS CIR CUM CIZED ... THEY THREW AWAY THE WRONG PART !!!
The only thing 99.9% of these politicians from either side are worried about is re-election so they can stay on the gravy train. They want to continue their legalized inside trading and legislating for their own wallets. They don't care about anybody but themselves. NO INCUMBENTS! NONE!
All of these posts from Obama lovers. There must be 50 pro Obama posts – read them. Let me know if one of these posters actually refer to any policy or anything BO has done in 3 years that has helped this country. Very sad.
Libs think they can simply run on their hate because they have nothing else.
They probably all work for obama's campaign...
