Jay Carney on why Obama has held ONLY 100 re-election fundraisers

Since announcing his re-election bid in April of last year, President Obama has spent a significant amount of time fund-raising, attending more than 100 fundraisers in this relatively small time span. By contrast, George W. Bush attended just 49 political fundraisers by this time in his presidential tenure.

Nevertheless, when asked on Friday about this phenomenon, White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, insisted that the President has actually spent a relatively small amount of his time on his Presidential campaign, and attributed this feat to the fact that Obama - unlike the current GOP Presidential candidates - is not engaged in a primary race.

So, there you have it: The President was able to limit himself to a MEASLEY 100+ fundraisers in less than a year because he is not engaged in a primary race. Hmmm.....
