Obama: “All I Care About Right Now is Political Fund Raising”

OK, Obama really didn't say that, but actions speak louder than words--

Obama: “All I Care About Right Now is Governing” | The Blog on Obama: White House Dossier" . . . “And so what that means is I think you can have confidence that all I care about right now is governing.” But Obama’s actions would appear to say otherwise. With the three fundraisers he attended Wednesday – one in Boston for the Senate campaign of Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and two in Miami Beach for the Democratic National Committee – Obama’s total for 2013 already tops the number George W. Bush did for the entire year in 2005. According to Mark Knoller of CBS News, who tracks presidential political activity, Bush did 15 events in 2005, three less than Obama has already done. Obama has hosted eight fundraisers – more than half Bush’s 2005 total – in just the past two weeks. The two years are comparable because Bush was also in the first year of his second term and raising money ahead of the following year’s midterm elections."

But when the only things at which one is competent are making speeches and fund-raising, what do you expect? As for "governing" . . . .
