President Barack Obama swung through the Bay Area last week like a college kid driving home for the weekend to do laundry.
His stops hovered in San Jose, Redwood City, and Atherton, where he held a rally and hosted the typical Expensive Dinners for Wealthy People.

Obviously, Obama gets a lot of California love in the Bay. Exactly how much love has he gotten in the City by the Bay? $2.2 million worth.
That's exactly how much his campaign has received from individual donors here. When considering that number, remember -- because all the Citizens United and SuperPac stuff confuses things -- that candidates themselves can receive no more than $5,000 per donor per election cycle.
In comparison, GOP nominee Mitt Romney has gotten a shade under $500,000 from us. This disparity is no surprise, of course. San Francisco is very blue, in addition to having plenty of green to give away. But the Obama love and the wealth are not uniform across the city's 25 zip codes.
Perhaps expectedly, the "First Gay President's" top district is Castro and Noe Valley (94114), which has given him $248,048 this donating cycle. The area was not only the most generous, but the most loyal to their liberal president: Romney only garnered $10,650 from Castro and Noe Valley neighbors. The other two zip codes in the $200k range include 94118 (Inner Richmond), which gave $243,693, and 94115 (Pacific Heights, Western Addition, Japantown), which kicked in $212,982.
Contrary to what you might think, there was actually one zip code that favored Romney: the city's Financial District (94104) where the former Massachusetts Governor slid past Obama, collecting $31,500 to the president's $30,137.
