Forum Post: Obama has been in SF and LA twice in the past two weeks to raise money.

Does this guy work or just try to get re-elected.

Giants legend Willie Mays, Gov. Jerry Brown and Mayor Ed Lee are all scheduled to be on hand when President Obama blows into San Francisco on Wednesday for a pair of sold-out fundraisers.

Obama's visit comes less than two weeks after his last Bay Area cash catch. One party co-host explained that the president was heading to L.A. anyway for another star-studded fundraiser, so why not make a quick detour and pick up an additional $1.5 million for his re-election fight?

The big stop will be at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in Clint Reilly's historic Merchants Exchange Building, where 275 supporters will pay $5,000 apiece to have lunch with Obama.

The last time Reilly hosted an Obama fundraiser - a $2,500-a-head event in August with first lady Michelle Obama - guests were forced to use plastic utensils after the waiters confiscated everyone's silverware as a security measure.

"From what I understand, that decision was made by a junior Secret Service person assigned to the first lady," Reilly tells us.

So this is something new to you? That politicians spend most of their efforts on being re-elected. Did you just fall off the turnip truck? Do you believe most politicians behave any differently?

Instead of wasting time talking about politicians, concentrate on how to improve our society without them.

He has been to SF twice in two weeks. That is outlandish.

Remember that tax payers are paying for all these trips. He has been running for elections since he left Harvard. He only served in the senate for less than a year before running for president. The majority of his votes in the senate were "present". We knew this and still elected him with absolutely no experience running anything. He's only good at campaigning not governing.

Obama and the entire congress need to be recalled.
