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.
great campaigner....great fund raiser......crappy president
corzine is a LOOSER...what a waste of money,,,
Can't win on MERIT or POLICY, so the backup plan is bribes and corruption
You go, "Bam!!
Doing what he does best.......campaigning and fund raising. Too bad isn't as effective as president.
What else is new?
still waiting for Hope.
Maybe the president could get busy presiding rather than running around the world and making so many TV appearances and still campaigning.
As for healthcare reform, why does he assume government needs to take it over? How about reforming health insurance so that my employer doesn't provide it...my employer doesn't provide car insurance, home insurance...why health insurance? Let me shop for the value and the package that I want.
Until I hear that, I'm skeptical.
Look at that beautiful smile...the three 6's are on the other side of the scalp.
Why did the Democrats make fun of Bush's vacations but not the fact that Obama is spending little time in the white house being the president.
I didn't vote for a fund-raiser, campaigner, olympic schmoozer,
Maybe he should forget about campaigning and do his job. He can't seem to make a decision and is finding out he can't vote present when he is the President.
Please stop the disrespect. We have not had a harder working President since the FDR administration.
As the election season draws near, we will begin to see the silent majority speaking up again, as they did in the last election. Just because Republicans are more vocal right now, doesn't mean they're in the majority.
Democratics have seen that it is useless to attempt to persuade you, or to argue with you, so we'll just sit back and do our "persuading and arguing" at the ballot box with a true mandate that will allow this president and uninhibited road to bring his platform to life.
No more "blue dogs" and Republicans. Let's make it happen
Obama2012/Democratic Congress 2010
And if this doesn't work, he will call his Chinese masters and ask them to make another few million of those untraceable on-line credit card donations.
Go, President Obama.
We cannot let anyone belonging to the party of NO, a party out to
destroy our country, a party that has and will always sacrifice us
for big business, a party of hypocrits, get into office.
The American people realize this and the message to to GOP
must be sent loud and clear.
It would be nice if he would spend some time working.
Does the man actually know his address, because he sure does not seem to be ther often? Does he comprehend the job description, because it does not include fundraiser in chief? Maybe this is why his approval ratings are slipping, and it has nothing to do with race...he isn't actually working.
"Obama to help Democrats bring in the bucks"...........that's the least he can do considering he has destroyed their chances of getting re-elected.
Thank God he is not in the pockets of Health Insurance Companies like the republican congressmen who are now basking in popularity in the upper teens.
That's what candidates DO...they raise money for their party. A president always looks out for the country by helping ensure the best candidate is properly funded. Democrats are ALWAYS the best candidate (atleast under a two party system. If an independant candidate that had no republican leanings stepped up then it would be a good thing).
As such, the President is doing the right thing for america, supporting the smart and patriotic and family values party, Democrats.
Thanks Mr. President!
We Dems need to defeat the GOP lie machine and hold our own in the 2010 elections.
Times are too dire to give Republicans any power - 8 years of them screwing up was more than enough.
Corzine is a lot better than Spiro Christie.
Another great decision by Obama, almost as good as spending millions of taxpayer dollars to go to Denmark to tell the world that the Olympics will be held in Chicago, almost as good as going on the adulterer's show David Letterman, almost as good as watching 30 million unemployed starve and do nothing to create jobs, almost as good as saving 16 thousand homes from foreclosure when you promised 4 to 5 million, almost as good as trying to convince americans that a socialist healthcare system is really better for them in the end. I am now officially embarrased that I voted for Obama.
He has to do all this...the interviews and speeches, the fundraising events, the contest by Organizing for America because the American people don't have high-paid lobbyists padding the pockets of lawmakers or megabucks to buy tv ads like the insurance companies do.
We've all seen the ads on tv against health care reform...who do you think is really paying for them??? The health insurance companies and their paid lobbyists can spread lies like "death panels" and just sit back and watch everyone freak out. They are not at all interested in the truth.
President Obama, tell the "blue dogs" they are on their own for raising their own funds.
Since the republicans have no Merit or Policy, other than undermine the well being of the voters, I think America will soundly reject the party of "No!"
