Barack Obama has not only lost interest in the presidency, he doesn't even put his heart and soul into Democratic fundraising, says Matthew Continetti, editor-in-chief of The Washington Free Beacon and a contributing editor for The Weekly Standard.

"He's lost interest since it became clear last year that he would not be able to accomplish all of the big goals he set out in his second inaugural address," Continetti said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"He's spent a lot of time golfing, at dinner with friends and making new friends when he travels overseas, holding dinner parties and a lot of time watching television. He seems to have watched all of the most-watched binge shows on Netflix.

"[He's] sitting for a lot of interviews, a lot of celebrity shows, going on "The Tonight Show" and things like that. But really, in terms of seriously leading and seriously demonstrating command, Obama has not done that."

Continetti said the president and the Democrats have been on a "frantic fundraising streak" since the beginning of the year.

"[They are] trying to raise as much money as they can to stop the Republicans from taking over the Senate in November," he said.

"We know from reports that Obama, when he goes to these fundraisers, he doesn't spend any time really with donors. He doesn't like hanging out with them. In fact, his former aide said in 2012 that he doesn't really like people.

"This is the president that we have. He's someone who's uninterested in the world, in working with Congress, and who doesn't like people. For me, the big worry is we have to have him as our president for the next two and half years. There's no escaping that."
