I didn’t see an intelligence briefing, there, did you?
The RNC hit Obama on hypocritical effort to cozy up to the wealthy even as he attempts to raise taxes on them.
The National Republican Congressional Committee has also noted there will be a lot of socializing with the rich in the next 48 hours here.
On Wednesday night, Obama will attend two San Francisco fundraisers for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee — a $5,000 a head reception at the home of billionaire environmental advocate Tom Steyer and his wife Kat Taylor, and then a $32,500 per person dinner at the home of Ann and Gordon Getty. It’s one of 14 fundraisers for House Dems that the president has committed to this year, sources say.
On Thursday, he goes to tony Atherton, where he will star at two fundraisers for the Democratic National Committee. One, with tickets at $32,400 per person is at the home of investment guru Mark Heising and Liz Simons, and another is at the home of Levi-Strauss heir John Goldman and his wife Marcia, where tickets are $1,000 and up.
The GOP is gleefully noting that his trip to San Francisco tonight will be “near” the same neighborhood in which he made his famed remark about some “bitter” voters who cling to guns or religion.”
“On the campaign trail, Obama’s favorite applause line was attacking the very people he’s now begging for campaign cash. Hypocrisy at its finest. Barack Obama has his priorities completely backward — prioritizing billionaires over the taxpayers who demand and deserve a budget and cancelling White House tours while he spends $180,000 an hour flying Air Force One to fundraise on Billionaires Row.” – RNC Chairman Reince Priebus
Mark Levin hit Obama even harder for being the most irresponsible man ever to occupy the Oval Office.
Mark Levin points out that a nation has just declared nuclear war on America, and despite whether or not they can carry it out, the point is that Obama is gallivanting around from one fund raiser to another as if nothing is happening. Levin says he’s never seen such an irresponsible man in the Oval Office in his life.

In Stockton, Calif., which has just entered into Chapter 9 bankruptcy, 41 percent of the people do not speak English at home and 21 percent cannot speak it very well, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
Data that the Census Bureau developed on what it calls the “social characteristics” of Stockton during the five-year period from 2007 to 2011, indicate that this city, located eighty miles east of San Francisco in California’s San Joaquin Valley, had a population of 289,926.
Of those 289,926 people, 76,869 (or about 27 percent) were foreign born, according to the Census Bureau. Of these foreign-born, 43,084 (or about 15 percent of this city’s total population) were not U.S. citizens.
The logical result of the left-wing policies Obama is pushing nationwide, and which the limousine libs he’s visiting this weekend, are helping to fund.
