Letter: President's campaign

Published: Wednesday, Sept. 5 2012 12:00 a.m. MDT

Is it just me or does anyone else take issue with our president travelling the country over; spending literally millions of taxpayer dollars campaigning and fund-raising for his re-election; and not doing his job?

I am paying him to run the country and be the president — not the "Campaigner-in-Chief."

There is something seriously wrong when we allow this.

Who else can take literally months off from their job to pursue private/personal initiatives and not get fired?

Even if much of the money is coming from campaign donations, it is wrong, and I think Congress should put a stop to this nonsense.

Let him do it on his own time with his own money.
