Mr. Obama’s remarks came midway through a daylong fund-raising trip to Vermont and Maine. The president began with a lunch in Burlington with about 100 supporters who paid at least $7,500 each, campaign officials said.

Keith Olbermann has been fired by Current TV, the network announced Friday. He will be replaced by former New York governor and CNN host Eliot Spitzer.

RedStateVT has learned that Olbermann is in talks with both Al Jazeera and Nick at Night.
