Obama goes to PA for two different fundraisers yesterday:
PHILADEPHIA – President Obama served up some political red meat to campaign contributors in Philly tonight, bashing his Republican challengers while picking up more than a million dollars for his campaign and the Democratic party.
â€œThis campaign is at its early stages, Iâ€™ve got a day job, Iâ€™ve got other things to do,â€ Obama told about 800 supporters at a downtown hotel ballroom. â€œBut while Iâ€™m working there will be candidates parading around the country. And theyâ€™re gonna do what they do which is theyâ€™re gonna attack here in Philadelphia, theyâ€™re gonna attack. They wonâ€™t have a plan but theyâ€™re going to attack.â€
But the American people, Obama insisted, didnâ€™t want to hear the back-and-forth of politics â€œas weâ€™ve come to know it.â€
â€œThey are less interested in hearing us exchange insults about the past, they want us to exchange ideas about the future,â€ he said. â€œThatâ€™s the contest Iâ€™m looking forward to because I know thatâ€™s the contest that America needs and, by the way, thatâ€™s the contest that we will win.â€
