Obama's "Betting on America" fundraising bus tour to Ohio and Pennsylvania

During the past 7 days, President Obama campaigned 4 of the 7 days and attended 9 fundraising events. He had no public schedule the other 3 days.

Needing to "look like" he was working for the USA, Mr. Obama scheduled 3 official photo-op appointments where he: spoke at a naturalization ceremony, signed a Bill that Congress passed, and gave a speech telling us that he needs more money from us taxpayers and therefore wants to raise taxes. Additionally, he attended one meeting with his Senior advisers and had one daily briefing.

The highlight of the President's week was what he called his "Betting on America" bus tour. This was held last Thursday and Friday. For this, he flew to Ohio, boarded the Canadian bus he purchased with U.S. taxpayer dollars, and visited cities in Ohio and Pennsylvania. During these 2 days, he attended 5 fundraisers.

Below are pictures of President Obama working hard while we the taxpayers were paying of his salary.

Note that when he returned from his bus trip, he was so grateful that he immediately held a speech saying that he needed more money, and was therefore asking Congress to raise our taxes. While this is a bold step in an election year, this is a vital necessity to maintain his traveling lifestyle.
