WASHINGTON (CNN) – President Barack Obama puts on his fundraiser-in-chief hat again later this month.

The president is scheduled to headline a top-dollar dinner for the Democratic National Committee at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York on Tuesday, October 20, according to a Democratic source.

Obama is also the main attraction at a Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee-Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee joint fundraiser in Miami on October 26, according a a Democratic leadership staff source.

The president also heads back onto the campaign trail later this month. Jon Corzine's re-election campaign says the Obama will team up with the New Jersey governor later this month. The president joined Corzine at a campaign rally this summer, and on Wednesday Vice President Biden teamed up with Corzine in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

  1. Obama worst president EVER

    Instead of raising big money for the so-called "party of the people" (that is, rich liberals), Obama needs to come up with a plan to deal with unemployment – and finally come to a decision on Afghanistan.

    Obama needs to get to work for once.

    This is all this turkey can do is raise money for politicians but not to pay for healthcare.

    Why do you not just moderate everything.Every news organization in the world has to put pressure on you before you ever question anything Obama does. Reminds me of Letterman. You can get by with anything if you are Liberal.

    Obama is a horrid president. I am a lifelong Democrat but am sorry to say that this guy can campaign but can't govern. We democrats once again squandered a prime opportunity when we chose this gasbag for our candidate. I'm afraid if the momentum keeps going in the direction it is going now, we will lose our majority in 2010 and the presidency in 2012. Most if the hits we are taking are not over our ideology but over ineffective leadership.

    My how the mighty have fallen. There was a time not too long ago where I would read blogs on this new site and almost get a cavity from all of the syrupy, sweet endorsements of President Obama. Now, I read just as many negative as I do positive assessments of his job approval. America is finally waking up. I just hope it isn't too late.

    This would be a good forum to announce that Bush and Cheney are not the two top dogs since Jan 20.

    1: Stop blaming everything on the previous administration ("he is working every day to clean up GWB's messes", etc.) If you want to do that, you better look two administrations back.
    2. Though I despise BHO (and I mean DESPISE), this is what all presidents do. Give him a break on this one.
