Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider to Host Obama Fundraiser At His Home

Whoops.  We meant Sex and the City actress Sarah Jessica Parker.  You can see why the honest mistake.

Via Politico:

“Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker is hosting President Obama, first lady Michelle Obama and a few lucky raffle winners at a fundraiser in New York next month.

Parker will be hosting the event at her home on Friday, June 14, according to a campaign email signed by Parker.

“As a woman, a mother, and an entrepreneur, I need to believe our country can be a place where everyone has a fair shot at success,” Parker wrote in the email. “This November’s election will determine whether we get to keep moving forward, or if we’re forced to go back to policies that ask people like my middle-class family in Ohio to carry the burden — while people like me, who don’t need tax breaks, get extra help.”

For a contribution of any amount — although the ask is $3 — supporters are entered for a chance to be there. According to the fine print, winners also get tickets to a performance by Mariah Carey, although it’s unclear if Carey will be entertaining at Parker’s house. 

The Obama campaign broke fundraising records with a similar raffle for dinner with the president at George Clooney’s house earlier this month, raising more than $6 million from the raffle. With entrance fees for guests, the total haul was more than $15 million.

Weasel Zippers comments on the type of cuisine being offered at the Hollywood star’s home cooked feast…

Sarah will even serve her favorite meal, hay and oats.

President Abusing Taxpayer Money to Fund Campaign Rallies

April 27, 2012 at 9:00 am (2012 Election, Air Force One, Campaign, Fundraiser, George Bush, John Boehner, Mark Knoller, Obama Campaign, Rally, Taxpayer, White House)

Not too shabby for a guy who hasn’t officially held a campaign rally yet.  White House correspondent Mark Knoller, indicates that the President is really only fooling himself, having already held twice as many campaign fundraisers than George Bush did during his entire 2004 re-election bid.

Via the Daily Mail:

According to Mark Knoller of CBS News, unofficial keeper of presidential statistics, Obama has held 124 fundraisers – about one every three days – since he launched his re-election bid last April compared to the 57 Bush held to raise cash for his re-election bid eight years ago.
Obama’s frenetic fundraising schedule had prompted the Republican National Committee (RNC) to lodge a formal complaint with the Government Accountability Office (GAO) about misuse of taxpayer money.

Speaker John Boehner ripped the President, demanding that he ‘pony up and reimburse the Treasury’.

‘Frankly, I think this is beneath the dignity of the White House … for the president to make a campaign issue about it and then travel to three battleground states,’ he said. 
‘This one does not pass the straight-face test. You know it, and I know it. It’s time for the Obama campaign to pony up and reimburse the Treasury.’
He added that ‘the president keeps trying to invent these kind of fake fights because he doesn’t have a record’ and ‘the emperor wears no clothes’.

What exactly has this administration accomplished that does pass the straight-face test?

So how does he get away with using your money as opposed to his own?  RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, explains.

‘Throughout his administration, but particularly in recent weeks, President Obama has been passing off campaign travel as “official events”, thereby allowing taxpayers, rather than his campaign, to pay for his re-election efforts.’

The rate we’re being stuck with?  Air Force one costs roughly $180,000 an hour to operate, and the President has unlimited power to use it for his campaign tour stops.

Biden Says Republicans Don’t Understand the Middle Class… At $10,000/Couple Fundraiser

March 13, 2012 at 9:23 am (Economy, Fundraiser, Joe Biden, Middle Class, New York Strip Steaks, Vice President, Wealthy)

What says middle class empathy more than stuffing your face with New York strip steaks and white truffle mashed potatoes, at a cost of $10,000 per couple?

The irony involved in the vice-President claiming others are out of touch, while being completely out of touch, is something too complicated for Joe’s little head to comprehend.

From Beltway Confidential:

Vice President Joe Biden addressed 87 wealthy Democrats last night attending a fundraiser at the home of Sen. John Kerry in Georgetown. As they dined on New York strip steaks, and white truffle mashed potatos underneath a outdoor tent, Biden criticized Republicans for being out of touch.

“These guys don’t have a sense of the average folks out there,” Biden said according to the pool report, “They don’t know what it means to be middle class.”

87 guests paid $10,000-per-couple to attend the dinner.

Well, at least he didn’t ask somebody in a wheelchair to stand up.  Baby steps…
