Obama’s $4 million night

Miami (CNN) – President Obama isn’t only in Florida to talk energy at the University of Miami. He’s here to line his campaign coffers with millions of more dollars.

After his 25-minute speech wrapped, the president headed off to the first of three fundraisers of the evening in this politically crucial state: a $1,000 per-person rally at Miami’s Biltmore Hotel, according to a Democratic official.

    I am sure in November when American voters walk up to the ballot boxes, Obama's $5 trillion 3 years will weigh heavier on their decision than his $4 million night.

    Go Obama!!!! You'll need every penny to fend off the billionaires who want to put a GOP puppet in the WH.

    How do we overturn Citizens United – one of the worst SCOTUS decisions in history.

    "President Obama isn’t only in Florida to talk energy at the University of Miami. He’s here to line his campaign coffers with millions of more dollars."

    Look at that – something Democrats and Republicans can agree on – doing everything that can to sucker more people out of their hard-earned money.

    Obama can campaign using government resources (my taxes) using a weak excuse like "I'm uh here to talk about um, energy, yeah".

    Does that mean I can deduct my next trip to Hawaii with the excuse "i might um be looking for work for my um company"?

    I know I know, past presidents have done it to. I already know that Obama is starting to look more like the same old thing.

    Bill...yes he has a job, digging out the pig sty left by the republican administration. Doing quite a job despite the republican party trying to bring down the country for personal gain while distracting idiots like you. BTW, the question should have been screamed on the jobs you were promised in 2012.

    So long as PAC money is flowing at an unprecedented rate into GOP coffers the President will need money for his reelection campaign. It would be a good idea for citizens to rebel against these PAC's and allow us to have an election based on facts and not fantasy.

    Well Mr. O. when I can't afford to keep myself warm in the winter, then what? This problem is massive, on so many levels. I view this as a crisis. Lip service about alternative fuels blah blah doesn't mean a thing to me.
