As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Raises Up to $1 Million for the DNC

President Obama is back to big time fundraising, heading out this evening to a fancy hotel in Washington to meet with a few well-heeled donors who ponied up megabucks to be in the same room with Obama. The money goes to the Democratic National Committee, no doubt for use in the 2014 campaign.

A DNC official said “the event with the president had around 30 people giving donations of up to $32,400,” according to the pool report.

Glad we’re in the age of openness. That could mean anything from $0.00 to $972,000. But I think it’s safe to assume it’s closer to the latter.

Obama “is not delivering remarks,” which is the White House excuse for barring the press. Really? Did he not say anything to the group? Depends I guess on the definition of “remarks.”

  1. His speech will be : I can’t do anything with these stupid Republicans, gimme money so we can have back a Dem Congress, then I can finish off the U.S. !!!

    I’m sure that’s close, but his big donors have been making back their “donations” ten-fold these last 5 years. :(

    • I read something similar last summer which also included children with ‘hopeless’ diseases as well as the aged. And of course they’ve been doing euthansia in the Netherlands for quite a while. It’s been ten years since I’ve moved from the coast, but one time while there I was watching a WSJ panel on TV, and they said how older people were afraid to go into the hospitals for surgery because they didn’t know if they would be coming out. It’s not just the costs of healthcare, but I’d bet they don’t want us consuming too much because we’re no longer productive.

      • I really don’t want to get too into this because many people think the world of hospice and I can see that for some situations, it is an organized approach to the end of life, but when my mother had her final illness (some strokey thing), we turned down many tests–what could be done if they showed this or that–if the ans was nothing, then why do the test. They did insist on an expensive swallowing test before she could have Jell-O–she passed and even ate her own dessert herself. Anyhow, there was a huge push toward hospice–they kept saying it’s free, it’s free–like we were the biggest deadbeats on earth and would say, Well, heck, free, let’s do it!” Finally, we did say yes–her care place could not manage her, she was not really conscious. They immediately withheld all food and water and went bonkers with the morphine–she was not in pain, tho they said she was–she had never been. They also said she had stopped eating–I knew that was not true. This lasted 8 days until the inevitable. So, as costly as end of life care can be–I think this may be a pattern. As I said–it is a necessary thing, I guess–but you need to know how this goes in some cases.

      • I agree, Julie. Obama even said maybe granny can just take a pill instead of having surgery. Makes me feel like they don’t value old people…

  2. At $1 million a night, he’d have to fundraise every night for the next 599 nights to reimburse the taxpayer just to cover the cost of a lousy computer program.

  3. Proverbs 6:12-19, Warning against sowing discord.

    12 A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.
    13 He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;
    14 Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.
    15 Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.
    16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
    17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
    18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
    19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

  4. It still fascinates me that any wealthy person would want to be in the same room with this man, much less give him $$$. He has exposed himself by now. Are these people really that stupid? I guess they are…….

  5. Well, one can only hope that someone goes all NSA on Obama and brings along a small tape recorder to save the “unremarks” for posterity.

    • Recording hidden “remarks” from Obama = That person would be shoot dead by the S.S., or disappeared to a black site.

      But that is my hope & dream of how Obama will fall, someone will get him saying something vile & hateful & illegal about the US.
      We all know “Barack Hussein Obama” has that kind of anger & hate in his so-called ‘soul’ towards the US.
