Are these 1%ers contributing to a super pac? I'm guessing it's not legal for these defenders of hard working Americans to directly give the proceeds of a $40,000 a plate (how middle class) dinner directly to Obama.

They should have given the money to the US Treasury to help pay down the debt their little jug-eared boy created.

You know....if Barack Obama had campaigned on being your typical politician who will go to Washington and do and act and say as every other politician does, then i'd have an ounce of respect for the guy. But that's not what he campaigned on. He campaigned on being the outsider....the grassroots guy....the guy who was hell bent on changing how DC is ran. And what do we get? An abject failure....a man of no principle...a man with no shame....a man with no dignity.....an amateur......a LIAR. "Hope and Change" my ass. We get a President who aspires to be a celebrity, a divisive, thin-skinned, man child who treats his contituents as ignorant pawns.

Barack thinks you're stupid. Unfortunately, most of his base actually is stupid. They hold him to no account, and he knows it. It's disgusting.

My guess is that nary a single liberal will come to this thread and denounce Barack Obama for his lies and his misgivings. They never do.

+1

I am disappointed by Barack Obama for many reasons most of all he is exactly what I didnt want, business as usual, but I am utterly disgusted by how the Republican Party just crossed their arms and decided to become the party of NO.

I wish I had a viable third candidate to choose from as I cant really stomach either Obama or Romney.

Really America, is this the best we can do?

I already have a list of 'Hollywood' types that no longer get my money that would be transfered to Obama. But I'd like to see a full list of the attendees so I can add to the list those I missed.

Obama's cabinet is filled with former Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan people as was Clinton's as was GW Bush's.

Obama and his Keynesians have proven their economics as failure. The only ones still in the Obama camp are those who want to see the destruction of this country completed.

Okay, so? Are you trying to defend and deflect from the fact that they are your guy's top contributors? Childish.
