As promised, "I will not rest ..."

... until all the campaign dollars are collected!"

It's got to be tiring: traveling from city to city and attending multiple fundraisers in a single day. But, that is exactly what the President and Vice President have been doing these past few days.

Today, Obama leaves his generous donors in California and flies off to Denver Colorado where he's scheduled to give a Jobs speech at a local high school. He'll be in Denver for just a few hours, but it will be long enough for him to justify his hefty expense account.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden hits up wealthy donors in 3 different campaign events today. The first is at a private residence in New York City around noon. Then, he flies to Boston MA and attends two more campaign fundraising  gatherings. There are no "official" Vice Presidential duties listed on his agenda, so it seems that Team Obama will be paying for this personal day off from the office (Biden campaigns in NYC and Boston).

Forget the country, it's fundraising time!

The race is off for the Obama reelection team to get as much money as it can before quarterly reporting fundraising deadline at end of September. Thus, Obama is on a 3 day money mission in Washington and California. And, helping him out, his elves, Joe Biden and Timothy Geithner have chipped in as well.

Although the economy of the country is falling apart, the President is forced to ignore his governing duties in favor or DNC obligations. But not all his time is spent with boring millionaires and billionaires, as he has found time to get in a round of golf and be entertained by extremely successful singing stars and basketball legends. Here is a summary of our leadership's the last 5 day's activities.

Monday - 3 Fundraisers
  • Obama in Mountain View CA townhall meeting and questions from LinkedIn users, then three separate fundraisers: private homes in San Diego and Los Angeles, and then a big a Los Angeles venue.
  • Geithner to Louisville KY visiting UPS high-tech plant and pitching the value fo the government.

Sunday - 4 DNC Fundraisers - 2 Washinton, 2 California
  • Two fundraisers in Washington. The first was near Seattle WA. Then, off to Paramount Theater in Seattle with basketball greats Lenny Wilkens and Bill Russel.
  • Two fundraisers, first in Woodside CA featuring blues singer Robert Cray, and the second in Atherton CA where Lady Gaga entertained Obama billionaires for $35,800 per ticket.

Saturday -
  • Night - Michelle & Barak at the CBC (Congressional Black Caucus) Phoenix Awards in downtown DC.
  • Day - Golf with Clinton at Joint Base Andrews

Friday -
  • Obama hosted private lunch for 4 leading black talk show hosts

Thursday - 2 Fundraisers
  • Biden in Florida, fundraisers in Boca Raton and then in Miami.
At least the White House travel office and the Air Force One crew are fully employed.

Obama's solicit millionaires & billionaires for huge campaign contributions

Only a few days after the President vowed to take his jobs plan to the people, both Mr. Obama and the First Lady are selling pictures of themselves today. For a minimum of $10,000, one can purchase a photo of himself with the the First Lady at her lunch with Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Those who cannot make lunch can attend tonight's dinner at the Gotham Hall and get their pictures there. Although the price increases to a minimum of $15,000, the extra $5K will buy you a picture with both the President and First Lady, and the opportunity to be entertained by Alicia Keys ( Obama's two-day NYC juggernaut ).

Now, everyone must remember that the people attending one or both of these expensive dining fundraisers are most likely some of the same millionaires and billionaires who are not paying enough taxes yet. Thus, they must donate these large sums of money to insure that they are exempt from the President's proposed tax increases on this wealthy upper class society who we presume are Americans.

While the Obama's are gathering New York dollars, the happiest man in the world, Joe Biden, will be flying off to the midwest states of Ohio and Illinois to promote tax increases for Air Force One and Two, and aid for failing green manufacturers ( Fundraising in NYC, Ohio and Chicago ).

Jobs Act selling out at private DNC buffet fundraisers

On the menu, the new buffet rule: Tax the Millionaires (unless they give lots of money to the Obama Victory Fund).  The rest can eat peas.

Last Thursday evening,  September 15, the President attended 2 private fundraisers in the Washington DC area. The first was a DNC event sponsored by the African American Leadership Council. It was held in the Foggy Bottom condo and approximately 30 wealthy folks handed over $35,800 per ticket to the President ( Obama talks congress at fundraiser ). And, shortly afterward, a second money transfer occurred in Georgetown where 50 patrons gathered and gave $35,800 per couple ( Obama fundraises on jobs act ).

Today, Mr. and Mrs. Obama fly up to New York City to begin their combined U.N. / DNC Fundraising appearances. Upon arrival, the President attends a United Nations Mission meet and greet. Then, he is off to a DNC event, but no word has been given as to the amount of donation required to attend.

NEA Teachers Union gives $60 million to Obama campaign, Obama gives back $60 Billion with America Jobs Act taxdollars (corrected)

We were reading through our old posts and saw a line that said the National Education Association, NEA, intended to support and later voted to give the Obama 2012 re-election campaign $60 million last July.

Then it made sense why the President wants his proposed Jobs Act passed "Right Away". 

The reason is that Obama wants to pay back the $60 million by giving $60 BILLION give back the $60 million to the NEA by using American Taxpayer dollars. Arguing that he wants to spend $25 billion million to modernize schools and give $35 billion million to keep teachers, we see that he is trying to simply fund his election campaign using American tax dollars ($25B + $35B = $60 billion).

In the end, Obama gets $60 million, and the NEA claims a $60 million donation write-off at a net cost of $0 (zero dollars).  

Meaning, the donation is given back 1,000 times more!

And, we the American public, in effect, gave Obama $60 billion million out of the budget.

Prediction: Obama going down under in November

I'm not much at making predictions, but according to Politico44 (Obama to Australia in November) and TheVine (News you can use - Obama is coming to Australia! Hopefully!), President Obama is going down under to Australiain on November 16 to 17 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the ANZUS alliance.  A search of the White House website confirms this wonderful news: The President to Visit Australia in November to Commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the U.S.-Australia Alliance.

Hopefully, this trip is an omen that the President will also go down under in the November 2012 election!

Obama's Definition of Jobs: Tennis, Food Kitchen, Concert, and Campaigning

After presenting his Jobs Act dream speech last Thursday night on national TV, the President is beginning to rapidly spend the $447 billion new jobs package he has proposed.

Friday, he visited  the University of Richmond in Virginia.

Tomorrow, on Tuesday, He flies to Columbus Ohio to talk to a high school about the money in the bill for education.

Wednesday, he's off to North Carolina and will visit the Raleigh-Durham area.

And, while Mr. O was campaigning for jobs, Mrs. O entertained herself at the U.S. Open. There she used her "Let's Move!" slogan as cover for taxpayer reimbursement.

Saturday, the family remained in Washington and spent the day remembering the 9/11 victims by working at the DC Central Kitchen (I don't see how that relates).

Last night, the Obama's and Biden's attended "A Concert for Hope" at the Kennedy Center and reminded everyone that: "we have overcome slavery and Civil War; we've overcome bread lines and fascism, recession and riots, Communism and, yes, terrorism"
(Hope And Heroism: Obama Hails Post-9/11 Resilience)

The one major question that the American public should be asking themselves is:

Why is the Democratic National Committee launching an ad campaign to pass this important economic proposal unless it is only a re-election campaign issue intended only to stimulate the President's popularity rather than truly helping put the American public back to work? (DNC ad campaign to promote Obama jobs plan)

To Obama, Labor Day means Bully Day

The President's frustrated re-election campaign revealed its true colors this past Labor Day weekend in the battle to control America.

First, Mr. Obama traveled to Detroit Michigan and gave a jobs speech to a crowd of friendly workers. However, his remarks were foreshadowed by the introduction delivered by Teamsters chief Hoffa who urged the President to "take these son-of-a-bitches out", referring to the tea party opposition.

Less than an hour later in Cincinnati Ohio, VP Joe Biden urged an AFL-CIO crowd to "stop the barbarians at the gate!".

The only problem the administration has with these "give-em hell' speeches is that is that Obama is pushing more "free trade agreements" with underdeveloped countries which means more importing of foreign goods and less U.S. manufacturing by either union or non-union labor.

While not directly campaigning, the President toured the receding flood waters in Paterson NJ on Sunday. There, he met with local residents and promised to help in the rebuilding of the city from Hurricane Irene's relentless damage.
