President Obama is out on the campaign hustings again, meaning another star-studded gala, this time time with R&B singer Cee Lo Green, famed for his hit "F--- You."
White House spokesman Jay Carney said it's likely that the president has Cee Lo tunes on his iPad too. "I know he's a fan," said Carney en route to Chicago, where the president is attending two fundraisers before traveling to Atlanta for three more, one a gala featuring Green and actor Tyler Perry.
Unclear: Which version of Green's song the president likes, the X-rated version or the popular G-rated rewrite, "Forget You."
The trip will mark his 108th fundraiser since announcing for reelection, a record.
The full day of campaigning and fundraising, coupled with the first lady's Monday campaign trip to New York, is the clearest signal yet the that the reelection campaign is on. But Carney said that the president isn't ducking his day job.
"The president of the United States is the president of the United States 24 hours a day, including when he calls foreign leaders in the very early hours of the morning, and on weekends, and on any given day of the week," Carney told reporters en route to Chicago. "I can assure you that his day will be full of the execution of his responsibilities as president, even as he is engaging in these campaign events."
