PRIORITIES: Hollywood trip marks Obama’s 150th fundraiser.

President Obama went to Hollywood again Wednesday, marking his 150th fundraiser since taking office during a West Coast swing that ignited Republican claims that the president is far more intensely focused on campaigning rather than governing.

A two-day cash grab in San Francisco and Los Angeles, headlined by a gay rights event at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel with television star Ellen DeGeneres and a $25,000-per-head dinner with “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy, was derided by the Republican National Committee as Obama hobnobbing with his “greatest allies, the Hollywood glitterati.”

But others say it is Obama’s repeated clarion calls for money, not the audience, which is most worrisome. Five months before the general election, Obama has already hosted nearly twice as many campaign fundraisers as his immediate predecessors.

Follow the money.
