Local reporter says President Obama is still in campaign mode post-election

Following a sit-down interview with President Barack Obama, NBC Sacramento reporter Edie Lambert said Thursday Obama is still campaigning even after the election:

ANCHOR: We know you sat down with him for a bit and asked him questions with the fiscal cliff and taxes and that nature. But what was your overall takeaway from the president today?

LAMBERT: Clearly, Kelly, he felt like he was campaigning to me. He just won a huge reelection campaign in November and he’s continued to campaign even after that big win. He is looking for constituents across the nation to lobby their members of Congress to try and get a deal done. I think that’s one of the reasons that he made time for a crew from Sacramento, trying to get that message out–he needs some help. For us, it was a chance to sit down and focus on issues specific to California. It was interesting to see how the White House is transitioning that campaigning, but at the same time, definitely campaigning, asking for people to call their lawmakers, asking people to post tweets on Twitter saying what they would do with $2,200, the amount their taxes would go up if we fall off the fiscal cliff. So, yeah, this definitely feels like a campaign.

    Obama hasn’t stopped campaigning since he got into politics. EVER. It’s all he know how to do.

    Are you just looking forward to the next four years with glee and wonder? I certainly am. Now where’s my bottle of 500 aspirin and Maalox? Oh….there they are, next to the tranquilizers and sleeping pills. Heck, my Valium supply is low. Can’t wait for tomorrow!

    Of course he’s in campaign mode. What a better excuse than to throw yourself upon some small CT community after their tragedy? Let’s see big ass jet, helicopters, black suburbans, secret service, and GUNS. Just what the folks of Newtown want on their first church Sunday after a major catastrophe.

    Let’s see, $2200/year.

    Approximately in my house…

    Verizon Wireless – $1100

    Comcast Cable – $1100

    Holy shit! Both combined equal about $2200/year and I used modest numbers and added a little to include games we buy kids. I know folks who pay three/four times as much.

    They ALL consider themselves to be “MIDDLE CLASS.”

    How can this come as a surprise? The guy’s a freakin’ “community organizer” for heaven’s sake! Community organizer is PC for the same people who brought you MoveOn.org. And that’s obama’s whole schtick. The WH, under him, is a federal MoveOn.org. “Write/call your congressman!”
