Do you know what is a great way for Obama Campaign to celebrate the Fourth of July? A great way to show us, the voters, that he wants to be reelected President of the United States on this great nations birthday?
To go campaigning in Europe……
Seriously, Obama’s Campaign kicked off his European Presidential Fundraising campaign in Paris yesterday.
I understand wanting campaign money where ever you can get it I guess but it that really how a candidate for President, not to mention the sitting President, should be celebrating his country’s birthday? Usually I believe these kind of holidays are private and personal events but this an official event. It seems crazy.
Then there is the whole European Presidential campaign thing. Really? I seem to remember something about not wanting foreign entities to influence our elections being mentioned before…. This seems a little wrong… Are they bound by campaign finance laws? That is a serious question. I really do want to know.
Is it really just me who thinks this is a little wonky? I mean this isn’t even a liberal versus conservative thing in my mind…
Updated: Thank you Homero for pointing out that President Obama himself was indeed stateside! I read the link from National Review and that led me to misread Ben Shapiro. While I this leaves me less annoyed with the President, I am still annoyed with the campaign. I do not like the idea of foreign money having a role!
