Review your history, young fella...Presidents of either party are considered their party leader, and both Republican and Democratic presidents have campaigned for their party's nominees throughout history. Why? For one thing, getting initiatives through is a whole lot easier when you are dealing with your own party (... More

Oh, you mean like how he petitioned the Supreme Court to stop the vote count in Florida and declare him the winner of the election, even though he lost?

Federal, state, local, it's all government. The President is Head of Government. Period. He can campaign for whoever he wants. He is not the only President to do so.

At least he is not putting forth people who do not even live in the districts and states for candidates. Politicians will be politicians but for the Conservatives/Republicans to bring in those who have no idea of the local issues and say "This is your local Candidate" sounds an awful lot like hypocrisy to me.

It has been going on and will continue to go on since day one of this country. He is doing the same thing that almost all the men who were presidents before him did. Nothing wrong with it.

He can do so if he wants. There is no law against it. Ask the same of Palin.

If the Reps were to win in VA and NJ, it would be taken s a rejection of Obama policies, and would give Nancy Pelosi and a few others something to worry about. Now, we can;t have that, could we??
