The O By Numbers

July 21st, 2014 - 10:55 am

As Twitchy notes, “Obama by the numbers puts things in devastating perspective.” They link to the Washington Post’s “The Fix” blog which notes:

According to author Brendan J. Doherty, from 2008 to 2012 Obama went to 321 events, compared to just 80 for Ronald Reagan.  And, as the chart below shows, he’s done 72 events in his second term – 34 this year alone. So far, he’s ahead of  the pace of George W. Bush, who had been to 30 events at this point in 2006. In his two presidential terms combined, Bush hosted 318 fundraisers. Obama has already smashed that number with 393 events to date.

Talk about the law of diminishing returns — and expectations.

I doubt at this point these fundraisers are even about the money for Obama.

A meglonarcissist needs their adoring crowd fix and since the unwashed masses no longer love him and hang on his every word, the closest Obama can come are rubber chicken dinners with fat cats who still enamored enough to plop down five figures for the chance to ooh and ahh.
