RNC ad hits Obama for 'record-shattering' 100th fundraiser

The RNC cites a report from CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller that former President George W. Bush had only hosted 56 fundraisers at this time during his 2004 reelection bid.

The video, supplemented by a fact sheet from the RNC, juxtaposes Obama's 100 fundraisers with his "three speeches on housing, one speech on government reform, zero meetings with the deficit-reduction supercommittee and 21 days of vacation" during the same period of time.

The video also accuses Obama of fundraising while "the national debt increased by $1.2 trillion," gas increased to $3.73 per gallon and "4.5 million voted for Obama's replacement" in the GOP race.

"After four years of failed policies, he'll need every penny," the video text concludes.

Obama is set to headline four fundraisers in New York City on Thursday night, according to the White House schedule.
