Why is President Obama doing fundraisers overseas?

I mean, really, what's up with this? Presumably, it would only be U.S. citizens abroad who would be donating, but, given the Obama campaign's "carelessness" in vetting donors, the money could be coming from anybody.

At the linked post, commenter Bill Mitchell asks some good questions:
BTW, who foots the bill for these trips? Does Obama stop by the US Embassy in Switzerand, shake a few hands then bill us for a “diplomatic trip”?

I've been wondering that very thing.

Probably illegal, decidedly smelly. The FEC may start baying on the trail in, oh, about 6-8 years. If they can find their dentures.

All of a piece with the disabled credit card verification.

Crooked as the day is long.
