143 days of work
If you are asking how many days he was actually a member of congress, he was elected a US senator in November 2004, and served until he was elected president in November 2008. If you are asking how many days as president he has worked with congress, he works with them on a regular basis, but he does not spend his time with all of them; in other words, unlike when he was a senator, a president does not generally spend time in the Senate or in the House of Representatives, except for giving the State of the Union address annually.
You may have heard his political opponents claiming "the president won't work with us." That is not actually true; it is a partisan complaint, and each side accuses the other of it, depending on which party is holding the White House. But every president, Mr. Obama included, spends time meeting with various congressional members, sometimes from his own party, but sometimes from the other party.
Barack Obama served as an Illinois state senator for three terms. According to newspaper reports, his constituents found him to be very available, and committed to helping his district. He then served as a U.S. senator from 2004 to 2008. By most accounts, he was very involved in his senatorial work from 2004 to 2007; but when he decided to run for president, he began spending less time in Washington DC and more time on his campaign.
768 days before he started his presidential campaign, 1416 days total.
AS FEW AS THEY CAN ...AND SEEING THAT THEY JUST BILKED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OUT OF $700 BILLION+ I'D SAY WORK ISN'T THEIR STRONG POINT.
According to an email from right wing blogger Cheri Jacobus: He logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. According to FactCheck.org: Wrong. That's not the number of days the Senate was in session. From the time Obama was sworn in on Jan. 3, 2005, until the day he announced his exploratory committee on Jan. 16, 2007, the Senate was in session 304 days, according to the Secretary of the Senate's official count. But why only count the number of days the Senate was in session? Senators work even on days when the Senate is not in session. Don't you get paid for days you go to work, even if you don't have a staff meeting that day? And why stop counting on the day Obama formed his exploratory committee? He was still a Senator at that time. Don't you get paid for days you go to work, even if you are thinking about getting another job at the time? The actual number of days that Obama was a Senator is from January 3, 2005 until he was sworn in as President January 20, 2009. That's 1478 days.
