Obama is all about getting money. Just a common guy from the people. I mean really, who among us does not throw ourselves our own birthday bash/concert and then charge our guests $35+K.

Isn't there something else pretty important going on Aug 3rd?? I guess the great orator has more important things on his agenda.

Well, it's not unusual. But it would be great if nobody showed up. Unfortunately, there are always some social climbers and suck ups with money who will pay to press the POTUS flesh.

My 25th birthday party had a $35 cover charge and 3 live bands playing....

We had around 150 people show up and the concert was great

Now, multiply my social standing (i.e. not a lot) by the Presidents and it makes perfect sense to me.
