Obama supporters pay $30,000 each for dinner with the President, but he eats alone in another room

The big spenders who shelled out $30,400 a head for dinner with President Obama at the Four Seasons restaurant and at Anna Wintour's house didn't actually break any bread with him.

After starting Tuesday night at a dinner for 60 high-rolling Democratic supporters hosted by hedge-fund billionaire Marc Lasry, Obama headed to a private room at the Four Seasons to wolf down steak, potatoes and broccoli with two aides before heading to Wintour's Greenwich Village home.

Obama arrived at the Four Seasons at 5 p.m. Spies said he gave a short speech and schmoozed with 60 attendees, including Lasry and Joan Ganz Cooney, wife of Blackstone Group's Pete Peterson, and ex-Martha Stewart CEO Sharon Patrick, sitting briefly at each table before dining alone.

...because the street agitator has very little table manners, that’s why you DO SEE HIM eating pancakes and hamburgers.

I forget the impetus for my words, but about a year ago I predicted this guy would slowly vanish from public and become an electron, seen on TV and youtube, but not so much in public.

He may disappear altogether by election time and folks .. there will be nothing to fight against because he won't exist.

He does have a very scary eating style, judging by the photos I’ve seen.

However, does anybody know if Muslims have any special table customs that might have given him away if he had been seen formally dining in public?

Having him retire to a private room with 2 aides in order to eat his dinner at a dinner party is just too strange for words. Can you imagine if Bush had done that? The press would be calling for a sanity hearing.

Multitasking at a banquet like that is kind of rude. I wonder if they knew that Bummer was going to almost immediately take a powder.

Maybe the sort of folks who want to do that for the Bummer cause are so absorbed with themselves they didn’t notice.

I wouldn’t be very happy if I paid $30k and they served broccoli. Gross.

Actually, I wouldn’t have a meal with O for less than $100K, and then I’d have to get paid in cash, U.S. bills, up front, and no taxes taken out.

Never mind.

Broccoli can be done deluxe style. Green Giant is one company that does this. What was really interesting, however, is how Bummer wolfed down the two aides.

"Obama supporters pay $30,000 each for dinner with the President, but he eats alone in another room"

Sounds like a variation on an old vaudeville gag, "0bama supporters paid $30,000 each for dinner, but didn't get to eat with Mr. 0bama, those paying only $15,000 had to eat with Mr. 0bama."

I’m holding a fund raiser for myself. You can dine “with” me for only $1000 on August 8th. Of course, you’ll have to find your own place to eat a fantastic meal anywhere in the world, since I will actually be eating at home with the family that day and we don’t want any company. So feel free to eat that day but remember to send me $1000. If you want, I can write out a few encouraging words and post them here on FR if you are so inclined to want to read them.
