If Obama keeps holding these fund raisers he could collect a couple of trillion dollars to apply to the national debt.A good president,one who puts America first, would apply every single dollar he raised to our nations debt.A good president would run his campaign on honor ,not dollars.

I love the way President Obama just seems so confident as the right continues to have anxiety attacks over the increasingly probability of a second term for our Osama-killing President. They are crying as President Obama is singing, LOL.
Good! Fill up those coffers b/c that's the only way the Repuglicans know how to campaign - spend, spend, spend!

Obama and Bush are twins. You contradict yourself constantly. When are you going to get it? They both suck.

surely you dont think it's his money, it's obviously in the hands on the DNC.
.
although I don't disagree, but if that's the benchmark, then ALL the candidates should be required to donate all of their donations toward the national debt.

You might have hit on something there.If all of the people(idiots-both partys) had to give their campaign donations to the goverment after the elections,win or lose it would:1)help the country,2) wouldn't go into their personal slush fund. Good idea.

If they were required to give 50% off the top it would be even better, then whatever is left over after the election.
the problem is the Super Pacs, that money is unaccounted for, for the most part.

saw a guy on PBS last night, David Stockman (?) used to work for Reagan I think.
anyway, he says that Super Pacs and the absence of free market capitalism is the biggest issue we face in this country.
we now have Crony-Capitalism, which has killed the free market.
.
His final idea was that we need a constitutional amendment to limit any/all campaign contributions to $100.
.
too bad he's not running for president, he could win, but he probably doesn't vet well, <sigh>, seems like nobody does huh?

If obama's speech tonight sounds like a hateful rant meant to further divide the American people his puppetmasters, and his toadies in the Media, will be very pleased with themselves. Even more self impressed than usual.

America must unite. Anyone but Obama in '12.
We simply can't take much more of this tripe.

Obama is no good. We can all agree. But is Newt any better? He and Barney Frank were using Fannie and Freddie to obliterate our housing market. He is on board with Obama whether you like to hear it or not. Romney is a socialized health care nut so he is on Obama's communist agenda too. I don't trust Santorem. The only way out is Ron Paul with any certainty of real change. The rest don't matter.

I agree. All Bush should be blamed for is starting two wars, letting Bin Laden get away from Tora Bora and not locating him for 8 years, starting the bailouts of Wall Street and the Auto Industry, starting the socialist programs No Child Left Behind, Prescription Drug Coverage and the socialisation of churches with The Faith Based Programs. Sure Bush was in charge when the country was faced with the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression. Big fucking deal. Could have happened to anybody. Bush said "Everybody should buy a home". That doesn't mean he was serious. Obama won the election. Its his baby now. So lets quit crying about what Bush did. Ancient fricking history. And besides, Obama should have fixed all of those problems the first day in office.

Work for the DNC,do you? Obama is blameless for everything,just ask him or his party,they will swear to it. BTY: Clinton also "missed" Bin Laden(more than once),The dems pushed the "everyone must own a house",bailed out the auto companies?,wasn't that Obama,after all he is taking all of the credit,two wars were voted on by BOTH parties.I could go on all day but it wouldn't do any good,the loony left will do nothing but throw out spin,made up "facts" than start with the peronal attacks and lies.You are right about "it is Obama's baby now",shouldn't it be after 3+ years? just asking.

What is the fuss. Obama is all increasing pitiful american families deserve. Don't be too depressed. America had a good run. History will determine that we just don't care about our kids futures as much as our parents cared about ours. Pelosi's comrades are plenty good enough for pitiful losers like us.
