So glad the President has time to fund raise when the budget and spending is out of control.

Joe:

Copied from another blog with link:
"Between January and November of 2002, President Bush made local visits (and in some cases, multiple visits) on behalf of at least 72 House, Senate and Gubernatorial candidates.

That was right around the time that Clinton handed Bush a SURPLUS, and Dick Cheney told us:

"Reagan taught us that deficits don't matter."

I believe that takes care of both parts of your comment about Presidential time and where revenue/spending madness began.

Anything else?
