Obama Visits Billionaires Row In San Francisco

"Obama was speaking those bitter word to on April 6th. It was the MOST wealthy of the wealthy in San Francisco .. the homes of 3 billionaires, as documented below. And the mainstream press were absent, because this sojourn was off calendar... not noted in news coverage (at least not truthfully about the contributors), no photos. But an enterprising sleuth captured some really good stuff, and, of course, someone in there taped it, which is how it got out at all.

A tiny smattering of media did in fact show up -- three local news crews stood across the street or down the block and used the Getty mansion as the backdrop for short segments about Obama's swing through the Bay Area.

Wait just a minute there. If you do the math, on just this one day in the Bay Area, Obama went to four events, three of which had $2,300 minimum donations per ticket, and the other $1,000 minimum per ticket. Each of the events, from the various descriptions, held as many as 400 people (the Getty mansion has a ballroom that reportedly seats at least 300). 400 x $2,300 = $920,000 per event, times three events = $2.76 million, plus the other event, which undoubtedly puts him over $3 million in contributions for this one day alone. And who knows how many other similar days he schedules in other parts of the country.

Michelle Obama (and other Obama campaign spokespeople) aren't telling the truth. It seems that a signficant portion of Obama's monthly campaign contributions are coming from "large donors"' -- i.e. rich people, not just the "$20 to $50" donations they're constantly bragging about. "

There is even a photo of the bomb squad being there to check out everything.

This body guard of Obama's sure looks like one of those Farrakhan´s body guard guys doesn't he?

....Thank you Rhod for the link to this Zombietime write up.

How come we never see any of the candidates visiting homeless shelters, hugging crying kids in hospitals, being human?
I would rather see the media show those pictures than multi million dollar mansions that I will NEVER have the happiness of being in unless it's a museum!
Times are tough and none has the audacity to visit beneath themselves.
Audacity means "rudely bold." I wanna see them being human for once! They aren't God or Superheroes. Stop putting them on pedestals--as a matter of fact, knock 'em off those damn pedestals they're on! Buck the system. Ask tough questions--get mean and nasty. Just don't hurt them physically.

I hope these billionaires only gave Obama the standard "little guy" dnation of $20.

These are the real people Obama will care about and cater to. This is real politics, American style.

Now, I understand Barack Obama's slogan of Hope, Action, and Change. He HOPES the ACTIONS that he is taking will CHANGE him from being a millionaire to becoming a billionaire.

He's just another race warlord poverty pimp utilizing racism to empower himself and his backers. Follow the money, how much is he getting from foreign (middle East) sources, to bring isalm to the nation?

A fact that should not be lost in this photo is the three fingers Mister Obama has pointed back on himself. His commentary and his pointed finger prove once again that what people accuse you of speak more about them than you.

Darth, hahahha , yes, I heard a video of Michael Savage ranting about Obama about this speech of his.

Posted by: Wild Thing at April 13, 2008 05:32 PM

Lynn, Yes, I wonder if they even go to those places.

When Bush was running I remember reading about how the Democrat party took buses and went and picked up homeless people, promised them coffee and got them registered, then took them to vote for Kerry. Thatis the only time I ever heard anything about them doing something with homeless in the shelters.

Tom, exactly.

What really is telling too was this in the write up...."sojourn was off calendar"....No one except those with the huge bucks was to know about this, not even the media.

Les, LOL yes, it sure is. What a jerk he is.

Posted by: Wild Thing at April 13, 2008 05:42 PM

Jack, I agree and that money you mention is probably well hidden too. Yes follow the money speaks volumes.

Sierrahome, you so right, good one.

At Myrtle Beach a few months ago Ollie North substituted for a sick Sean Hannity and said if the Dems get the White House in 2009, the CHANGE that will be a reality will be the CHANGE that's
left in our pockets after we're taxed .44 cents on the dollar! HOW TRUE!! And the 'W' tax cuts ends
in 2010...

Darth, how horrible and the dems will never renew W's tax cuts that's for sure. I just keep praying no dem wins.
