Apparently, President Obama has some unfinished business to tend to. During multiple fancy fundraisers in San Francisco yesterday, Obama claimed he would address global warming and "how to pay for things" in a second term.
"We're going to have to be as focused as we were in 2008," he said, joking that it was "not as trendy" to support him now as when he first emerged as a presidential candidate, but also noting the economic downturn has dampened spirits.
"We've gone through three tough years and so people want to hope, but they've been worn down by a lot of hardship," he told 70 people who paid $35,800 each to attend a dinner that included a live performance from soul singer Al Green.
"We've still got to get immigration reform done, because we are a nation of immigrants and we are a nation of laws," he said, adding: "We're going to deal with climate change in a serious way."
"And we're going to have to figure out how to pay for all this stuff," Obama said, saying that wealthier Americans - like him and like them, in his words - "can do a little bit more to make sure that kid around the corner has a chance like we did."
Maybe all of Obama's rich friends should be spending their $35,800 to pay down the deficit in order to fund the expensive government they support.
