Obama hits up big fundraisers

San Francisco (CNN) – With his re-election campaign officially up and running, President Obama offered supporters in San Francisco a robust defense of accomplishments thus far in his first term, while asking them to step up their efforts to help him win a second.

“Our work is not finished,” he told a largely enthusiastic crowd at a ‘Gen 44’ fundraiser at the Nob Hill Masonic Center, even as he cited his administration’s efforts to battle a deep recession, reform the education system, and passage of health care reform legislation. His remarks were met with loud applause by the crowd when he mentioned the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ as well as his appointment of two women to the Supreme Court.

    Neither is the shellacking. The only thing that saved Obama's job in November was that he was not on the ballot.
    With his insistence on raising taxes as opposed to controlling government spending, he will be soundly defeated in 2012.

    “Our work is not finished,”
    =====================
    Yes, there are a few things Obama, Reid and Pelosi have managed not to destroy yet, but would have if the American people hadn't put a stop to it last November. Come November 2012, YOU will be finished Mr. Worst-President-in-History. This country can't afford, or survive, another 4 years with you and your lackeys in Congress anywhere near the controls to this country.

    Every one of the GOPer maybe running for President governors have already raised taxes in their States one way or another during their tenures. Difference being, Obama wants to raise the tax bracket for the upper 2%ers only. Doubt too many Americans will be crying if he does succeed in raising taxes on the millionaires and billionaires.

  6. Tired of the nonsense

    I can't contribute any money, but Obama has my vote. I like having an intelligent person in the White House that knows what a Constitution is, what it's for and why we have one. Obama knows all that. I like having a person in the White House who wants to help America and Americans. Obama cares and is doing everything he can to pull us out of the pit Bush and the GOP threw us into.

    This president has proven that he can still do the job of president while the GOP behaves like spoiled teenagers pitching a temper tantrum.

    Bravo Mr. President! You deserve another term. GOP got their 8 years to destroy everything, you also need another 4 years to put things right. We understand destroying is very easy, but rectifying always is difficult and takes time!
