In the first 12 days of June, Obama has attended 21 fundraising events.  All told, he has now attended 163 re-election fundraisers for his campaign and the Democratic Party – almost double the number George W. Bush attended in his entire first term (86) and more than any other president in history.



Even while Obama’s fundraising frenzy can be explained, it still means significant expense to taxpayers for costs of presidential travel and security that are not reimbursed by the campaign.

For example, Air Force One costs $180,000 per hour to ferry the president around the country.  But the Obama campaign only reimburses the government for a fraction of that amount.

Typical dem tactic. Load a bill with a bunch of BS but name it the "Never kick a baby" bill.
So when it gets voted down they can cry "Repugs think it's OK to kick babies".

In reality it is THEM who should be ashamed for adding so much pork to a good idea.

Seen it for decades.

These people have no shame or regard for integrity.

Isn't it time we allowed line item vetoes, so we may eliminate the pork and get the great ideas passed.

Yet he is flying it more than any 3 presidents before him and then claiming there's no where to cut spending?..WTF
