President Barack Obama is slated to attend his 100th re-election fundraiser today [and a $35000 per plate dinner], — a significant milestone, more than double that of his predecessor, George W. Bush, who had attended just 49 political fundraisers by this time in his presidential tenure...
As [CBS News’ White House correspondent Mark] Knoller points out, Obama‘s biggest campaign donor is likely the American taxpayer who picks up the bulk of the tab for the president’s travel when he uses Air Force One, a mode of transportation that costs a whopping $180,000 per hour to fly.
