Sure, unemployment numbers are terrible, there's no debt limit agreement, it's been 800 days since the Democrats submitted a budget, and Iran appears to be racing toward a nuclear bomb, but according to White House Dossier's Keith Koffler:

Nearly 90 percent of President Obama’s domestic travel in the first six months of this year has been either partially or entirely political, and almost all the costs are borne by taxpayers, according to a White House Dossier Analysis.

Since returning from vacation in Hawaii Jan. 4, Obama has embarked on 25 domestic trips involving use of Air Force One. Of the total, 22 have involved either a fundraiser, travel to a presidential battleground state, or both.

Good to know that amid all the bad news for the country, the President has his eye on what really matters (to him): His reelection.
