Obama campaign mines gold out west

(CNN) - It's a whirlwind tour for the president this week as he travels west to continue pressing his message about strengthening the nation's sputtering economy. At the same time, he will also press some big money supporters to fill his campaign coffers.

In the end, after eight campaign events in three days, the bottom line will be an impressive $8.5 million dollars raised, split between the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

    Way to go Mr. President It seems like the only comments from the repos are negitive ones toward the president. They can't comment on their own party because it is so in the toilet what could they say? Hope we raise lots of money and get the message out at the same time. Obama/Biden 2012

    the nation's sputtering economy
    HEY! I have spent 4 years on my smoke and mirrors show to have you start telling the truth NOW! Didn't you get the talking points? It's a VIBRANT and RECOVERING economy. Those 15 million umemployed people don't matter just like deficits don't matter. Now gotta get back to rakin' in all that dough from these 1% suckers. If I get re-elected they won't have any of this kind of cash left laying around. I promise I'll spread it around if you catch my socialist drift. Chow baby and keep that Hope and BIG MONEY coming!

    Why do the right wingnuts lie and then ask you to prove their lies are lies?
