Obama Visits Swing States In “Presidential” Trips

24 04 2012

Since he has been president, Barack Obama has traveled to Ohio and Florida 36 times as “presidential” trips. On average, Obama has been to one of these two states about once a month.

Not only has he been to Ohio 20 times and Florida 16, he has also been to other top swing states multiple times. He has been to Pennsylvania 15 times, Michigan 11 and North Carolina 10. All of these times he has been on tax payer money because they have been planned as presidential visits to make big policy announcements.

Jay Carney, White House Press Secretary, said, “So you’re saying he cannot make official event — make official trips to a significant portion of the country because you guys have declared them battleground states.”

This is just complete ridiculousness aimed at trying to make conservatives look like petty idiots. We all know that the president is in a major campaign, but he cannot be allowed to pretend that these presidential trips are not campaign stops.

Just last week, Obama spoke to students at Florida Atlantic University and condemned Republicans for spending cuts, which caused students to start chanting “Four more years!”I don’t know what this sounds like to you, but for me, it sounds like a campaign rally.
