It seems that everything this illegal -resident does is illegal. The Marxists only recognize their own rule which is,”Anything Goes”.

The event, organized by the Democratic National Committee, kicked off an aggressive push by Mr. Obama to win back the allegiance of one of his most vital sources of campaign cash — in part by trying to convince Wall Street that his policies, far from undercutting the investor class, have helped bring banks and financial markets back to health.

“The Marxists only recognize their own rule which is,”Anything Goes”.”

I prefer to use the progressive meme,

“Rules are for suckers.”

The MSM doesn’t care - I suspect that has to do with the party of the President... not that the little suck-ups are biased or anything...

Firstest!!!111!!!1

So, is this bold-faced ‘unprecedented’ action? Just one of the list of so many ‘unprecedented achievements’ from the usurper.

You know what this advertises to the world? POTUS is easily bought, not that we don’t know it already, but this openly flaunting rules and laws from the top executive for his own personal gain is still breath taking.

The proper response that has anything to do with democrats is:

They can do anything they want.

The proper response that has anything to do with Obama is:

He can do anything he wants.

Read the comments after the NY Times article.

Most liberals are fed up with Obama.

If it isn’t illegal (it should be) then the rats will have to report this as in-kind campaign contribution.

If you believe that you are fooling yourself. And fed up or not, they will vote for him en mass, that you can bet on.

it was illegal

but then again, it could only be illegal in a country under the rule of law. being a lawless country, anything goes.

if they won’t even check hsi eligibility docs (which he cannot provide, since he’s not eligible)... what makes you think they’ll enforce laws that take more to prove?

Not if the Dems do it. They can also sell the Lincoln bedroom to the highest bidder.

I heard someone from CNBC this morning talking about how Wall Street is not happy with Obama. Who is happy with Obama?

Maybe they won’t vote at all. I suspect turnout of his base will be much, much lower than in 2008.

If you read the comments at the NYT article, that becomes pretty clear. They say that they certainly won’t vote for a Republican but that they also certainly will not vote for Obama again.

I don't see why the Hatch Act wouldn't have some application here. It would even affect government employeee serving the food and adult beverages to the donors assembled in the White House, a government building.

The Hatch Act, among other things, prohibits government employess engaging in political activity while....on duty, wearing an official uniform, in a government building......

Even the chef would come under this description.
