Does this President EVER come to California for any BUT fundraising? California is NOTHING but an ATM to him, and it makes me sick!

Yep, welcome to your post-Citizens United world. One of the many examples how broken our political system is (except of course if you are a plutocrat) and why we so desperately need to amend the Constitution.

"welcome to your post-Citizens United world"

Nice try, but the facts are not with you.

This was going on long before Citizens United. Al Gore came out here frequently, stayed at the home of a wealth Liberal elite supporter, hit the ATM, and left town. Obama is just doing the same thing.
