Obama’s visit to campaign HQ kept out of sight

(CNN) – Even as the GOP presidential primary season gets well under way, the White House continues to insist President Obama has yet to focus on his own reelection bid.

It may come as no surprise then that when Obama made an unannounced visit to his campaign headquarters in Chicago Wednesday night, members of the traveling press corps were kept far away.

    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO President Obama. It is detromental that you get re-elected. The Office of the Presidency of the US should be held in high esteem. The Republicans running in the current primaries are scary. I personally fear for our Country and how they make us look around the world. They don't hold a candle to you with. INTELLIGENCE, DEMEANOR, OR PRESENTING AS PRESIDENTIAL. You are the only one for the JOB. We love and pray for you daily. Keep up the good work it's starting to show. It did not happen overnight and will not resolve over night. But were heading in the right direction.

    Obama really doesn't have to campaign too hard – the GOP are doing it for him.

    "White House continues to insist President Obama has yet to focus on his own reelection bid."
    Huh? Hussein has never stopped campaigning!! The day he took office was the day his re-election started. He has never tried to lead, not that he could if he tried. This guy is at best a teleprompter reading, hollow, joke of a president that makes jimmy carter look presidential.

    There was nothing new to see anyway. Just the usual gang of chicago political thugs handing over thick envelopes and stating how they wanted to be paid off.

    Obama should have no trouble beating the republican clowns in the next election. Clear.choice, republican want to bring us back to the 1800 where there was no regulations of environment, food or water quality so that their rich friends can make more money, or DEMS who look out for all of us, and keep the environment safe from being exploited by the teabags to make a buck!!
