You hear of President Obama running on campaign trails then you wonder who is running the country? You also have to wonder whose money is he using to jet around for his campaigning. So my question is should an already in office president be allowed to campaign when really his works of the last 3 1/2 years should be what we judge him by?
Congress and the President run this country. Not just one person.
It should be campaign contributions from past and present which already exists.
So, judge him on what he has done.
Every single president since the beginning of time has campaigned for reelection. Why is it just an issue when it's Obama? They use money from their campaign.
No president should be allowed to campaign on the job. Meaning no phone calls from Air Force One, no calls from the Oval office, the president should be allowed to raise funds and campaign, but on his own time and on his own dime!
The people should not be paying to fly a first lady all over the country to raise campaign funds for example, that would be corruption. In fact it would be theft!
I am not singling out Obama, I wonder this of every president who runs for second term.
Yes, the POTUS should be allowed to campaign.
The reason? Americans, in general, are much too susceptible to having their minds changed for them. If all you saw on the TV was ad after ad claiming that the POTUS had done all these bad things, and he didn't have a chance to respond, too many people would simply believe the ads because they are on TV.
It's kind of why the original idea was to have the electoral college do all the voting, because the general population doesn't necessarily know what is best for the country, and will often make up their minds without actually considering any evidence.
