Good one! If Obama wants to help the democrats, he should go into hiding. Nice signature legislation, Mr. Wizard.

He's offered but will any candidate be desperate enough to take the "help"??

These dems up for re-election are going to run on Obama's "political brand?" You mean horrible results and the Obamacare disaster? I'll bet they're really pumped!

Raising funds to maintain control of the Senate is much different from raising funds for taking back the House. The Senate races are state-wide races and not affected by gerrymandered congressional districts. Given that fact and the fact that President Obama won very handily in 2012 because his was also a state wide vote ----- well, then his fund raising for Senators makes sense. Trying to unseat all the gerrymandered, safe House Republicans is a much bigger order.

He should stay out of Washington where he can do less damage. Obama has been nothing more than a perpetual campaigner since being an Illinois State senator (which he won by getting his competitors disqualified and running unopposed. As a State senator he was already campaigning in Iowa. Some things never change.

He should go on vacation and work on his short game. That would help the Dems more. The senate will go back to the Republican in November.

He will do very well fundraising. His polices have been very good for the top 1%. It is middle class that have been hurt.

Presidents should be barred by law from party fund raising during their term in office...no matter what party they belong to. Wasting other peoples hard earned money flying around the country in Air Force One for the sole purpose of raising cash for one particular party is a slap in the face to all taxpayers of this nation.

This does seem to be something he's still good at, though only god knows why given his record in the office of President.

Once again yesterday I had my comments excluded by the rightleaning strib censors! Yesterday I said the Democrats/Obama need multiple funraisers because they cannot relie on the Koch Brothers like the Repubs. Censors allow all the Obama slams but don't allow my comments!! Where's their objective approach?? My comments are on topic, no profanity and no personal attacks!!
