Money is an obsession with President Barack Obama. He speaks of it constantly. Not so much about his money, but other people’s money and getting his hands on it.
Mitt Romney’s, Warren Buffet’s, Bill Gates, the taxpayer; talk of their money and ours fills his campaign speeches and Oval office addresses. The man simply cannot get enough of it.
Today, for instance, he is in Chicago and he has five fund raisers scheduled. Try getting in some work on foreign diplomacy or our decaying economy in between the campaign money raising and the golf. There simply isn’t time.
White House Dossier reports:
Will there be any cash left in Chicago after Obama leaves Monday?
The president Sunday will hold what is, as far as I can tell, an unprecedented five fundraisers in one city in one day. He’s in Chicago, passing the hat all over the place.
He quotes pool reports:
President Obama will attend fundraising events in Chicago on Sunday, August 12.
First, he will attend a small roundtable in downtown Chicago. Tickets for the event cost $40,000 per person. The President will then attend a Gen44 reception at the Bridgeport Arts Center. Tickets for the event start at $51 per person.
Following the Gen44 fundraising reception, President Obama will deliver remarks at a fundraiser at his home in Hyde Park. Tickets for the event cost $40,000 per person.
Following the President’s remarks at his home, he will visit a private residence in Hyde Park for a fundraising event. Tickets for that event start at $5,000 per person.
In the evening, the President will deliver remarks at a private residence in Chicago. Tickets for that event cost $1,000 per person.
Obama’s got Michelle out their scrounging for it, too. They use up a lot of fuel dashing to Hollywood and New York, collecting as much as they can.
What’s next? The daughters? Probably. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them on some teen show pressing for cash for dad.
The only thing he hasn’t done yet, what with dinners, lotteries, etc. is to stand on the sidewalk, do a dance and collect the coins – busking.
At least those who did it had some dignity in their profession. Our president doesn’t.
