    Barack Obama has already held more re-election fundraising events than every elected president since Richard Nixon combined, according to figures to be published in a new book.

    Obama is also the only president in the past 35 years to visit every electoral battleground state in his first year of office.

    The figures, contained a in a new book called The Rise of the President’s Permanent Campaign by Brendan J. Doherty, due to be published by University Press of Kansas in July, give statistical backing to the notion that Obama is more preoccupied with being re-elected than any other commander-in-chief of modern times.

    Doherty, who has compiled statistics about presidential travel and fundraising going back to President Jimmy Carter in 1977, found that Obama had held 104 fundraisers by March 6th this year, compared to 94 held by Presidents Carter, Ronald Reagan, George Bush Snr, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush combined.

    Since then, Obama has held another 20 fundraisers, bringing his total to 124. Carter held four re-election fundraisers in the 1980 campaign, Reagan zero in 1984, Bush Snr 19 in 1992, Clinton 14 in 1996 and Bush Jnr 57 in 2004.

  2. Baby Jesus better spend it all on his re election because if he loses the other Dems are going to grab whatever is left.

    Just goes to show the only thing Odumbo is really concerned with is his own political future.

    And his Marxist agenda. I'll be very surprised if the country re-elects the incompetent Obama.
  5. He's a product of Cook, AKA "Crook, County, Illinois...ya know, that same place where Democratic Mayor Daley ordered his thugs to beat the living shit out of the protesters back in 1968.

    It would seem to me that most of the middle aged leftist loons that blindly support BHO would have paid a bit more attention to this non-trivial fact.
