What $38,500 buys at an Obama fundraiser
For the past few months, Obama has been hitting the campaign fundraiser trail instead of governing the country – so he can build up his smear war-chest for the upcoming election. On Wednesday this week, he started a 2-day, 8 fundraiser tour to California. Most of his dinner parties have a starting price of $38 500 per head. Clearly he is targeting those evil 1% that he’s been bad-mouthing and slandering for the last few months – you know, those millionaires and billionaires who don’t pay their fair share. However, this obviously doesn’t apply to his donors – no, they are the good 1%, whereas anyone who supports the GOP are the bad 1% and need to be exposed. Anyone else astounded by his hypocrisy? In any event, Obama hit his Pacific Heights fundraiser on Thursday where people paid their $38 500 per head to rub shoulders with the messiah. So, just how much swank did they get for their buck? Well, he gave a 10 minute speech and left – he didn’t even make an effort to smooze his contributors with his little Al Green rendition. That’s $3850 for each minute of his it’s-all-Bush’s-fault standard speech. Wonder how these people must have felt having bought a total of 10 minutes of his time! But, anything for Obama I guess – just being in the same room as him gives most of these liberals tingles up their leg.
For those 99 percenters without $38,500 for a ticket to President Obama’s Pacific Heights fundraiser Thursday, here’s what you missed: About 10 minutes of actual, live Obama speaking-to-the-group time.
“We’ve gone through the toughest economy… since the great depression,” he said, adding “Things are still tough.”He said many people feel like “Their concept of the American dream feels like it’s slipping away from them.“But, he added, “Three years from when I took office, America’s moving on the right track.”The economy is starting “to heal,” he said. He talked about how his administration has a larger purpose of rebuilding an economy that has a “firmer foundation.”He talked about his efforts in health care law reform, education reform, ending Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, ending the war in Iraq, The success of GM and what POTUS calls “fair play.” Catering to some techies in the crowd he said the administration has put highest priority on technology and innovation.”
We’ve been busy these last 3 years,” he said.”I’m here to report to you that all that work that you did in 2008, it paid off.”POTUS said “Change remains possible,” with persistence and hard work. “We’re gonna have to feel as determined…as we were in 2008.”He also quipped that it’s “not as new, it’s not as trendy, to be part of the Obama campaign” in 2012
