High octane fundraising events in the Big Apple

(CNN) - President Barack Obama is set to highlight his energy vision during a speech at Nashua Community College in New Hampshire on Thursday. It's a whirlwind visit to the college. In fact the president will only be on the ground in New Hampshire fewer than 3 hours.

Soon thereafter he heads to the Big Apple for the real focus of his trip - fundraising. Like his other recent forays outside of Washington, D.C., the president’s "message" event in New Hampshire will be but a prelude to some heavy duty fundraising efforts.

    Even as he continues to posture himself as the champion for the middle class, the president will be hob-nobbing with celebrities and industry leaders including big wigs from Wall Street and hedge funds.
    These guys love Obama and his money man at the Fed Ben Bernanke for keeping intrest rates at, well zero. Wall Street financial firms and banks are making $ billions on all this cheap money while the intended improvement in the housing market just hasn't quite happened yet. Don't look for that any time soon, either. And how about those retired seniors living on fixed incomes? Their savings don't pay much back now with money so cheap. Oh yeah, Obama is doing his part for the middle class allright. Lip service. We can all see who's making a killing on Obama's policies.

    I hope President Obama speaks at the college that Santorums sons attend, they could learn a lot from him despite the fact their father thinks inspiring people to go to college makes them like Obama a "snob".

    High energy vision?! Wow!!! All this Campaigner-In-Chief is looking for is wads of cash to pursue his "dream" of ruining America. This performer wannabe (the president) or his Secretary of Energy (Chu) have absolutely no plans for energy. They have been openly lying to the American people for the last 3+ years.

    His equally clueless Secretary of Energy stated that much, just today.

    Oh, wait a minute! They do have an energy plan!!! That plan is to continue spending billions of $$$ rewarding their friends/cronies and political contributors dabbling in failed alternative energy projects. Of course, all at taxpayer expense.

    This president and his equally clueless administration are so hypocritical that they continue to claim that they want to help the middle class. The only people this president and his administration want to help are his "YES" men and women, those he he is able to extort money from, and those that have lived on the dole most if not all their lives.

    Translation: Helping these freeloaders/political contributors will guarantee votes for Mr. Obama; all on the taxpayer dime.

    Are you still happy with the "HOPE and Change" that you voted for? I hope not! If America allows this man and his moronic administration to continue for four more years; America may never recover again.

    America, come the 2012 election; get up to speed on the "REAL" issues and exercise your vote wisely. PLEASE don't allow this unpatriotic president and his administration bring our country to its knees!

    Our future as a country and as a peoples depends on it.

    He's going to need that money once the the GOP smear machine stops attackiing itself and starts to lie and distort his record. I hope the American people are smart enough to see through it but he will need some serious $$$$$ to put his message out there.
