Isn’t it telling how President Obama and his underlings are still planning to host six fundraisers today when the Bureau of Labor Statistics just announced the national unemployment rate rose to 8.2 percent? One would think this administration would spend a little more time, um, governing and little less time dining at fancy restaurants and meeting with deep-pocket donors.

President Obama will jump-start what looks to be a major June fundraising push with six money events today in Minneapolis and Chicago – the most fundraisers he’s held in a single day since launching his bid for a second term.

Obama is expected to raise more than $7.2 million total for the Obama Victory Fund (OVF), according to figures provided by the campaign.
