(Reuters) - Billionaire investor Warren Buffett will help raise money for President Barack Obama's re-election effort at a $35,800-a-ticket fundraiser next month in Chicago, an Obama campaign official said on Wednesday.
Buffett will attend the October 27 event at a private home on Chicago's North Shore that is expected to include major donors to Obama's 2008 presidential run. The Democratic president, who is not expected to attend, is running for re-election in 2012.
Buffett, the legendary chairman of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., has landed in the center of a growing political battle over Obama's proposal to raise taxes on the wealthy by inspiring the so-called Buffett Rule.

picture of the old socialist from last June, dude's looking his age.
I think he and BO ought to try one of those big Al/Tipper Kisses.
I wonder if Warren with bring with him a $1 billion check from a Berkshire account to cover the back taxes the IRS says they are due?
he’s about the last friend you’ve got, barak, so make sure he pays up.
I wonder how they set there ticket prices the last gala event was $36,000. This one is $35,800. We were sitting around the dinner table last night and my wife said she would not pay 36,000 to see zero, but for 35,800 she might reconsider.
I seriously put Soros,Buffet and H.Hughes in the same category....degrading the human race one day at a time...and still, they keep age.....while the good ones die, these old crackpots keep going....must be the evil in their blood....
not H.Hughes...I meant H.”viagra” and “ugly as sin” Hefner....
Payback for the COOL FIVE BILLION DOLLARS he made trading BofA on Obama’s Insider information.
This is THE most corrupt Administration in American History. And it has a compliant, worshipping media, to boot.
I used to respect that man, oh, well!
Buffett will attend the fund-raisers as a “favor” for Obama, and Obama will STOP the IRS from demanding that Buffett pay that $billion or so in taxes that he owes as a “favor” to Buffet.....
It’s the Chicago Way for everyone to “get along”...
Who will bring his Depends?
of course! Buffet just wants to pay more so he is paying his fair share /yeahright
Hanes skivvies are in my future.
No more Justin or Tony Lama boots, either.
No more See's Candies (better for my health).
FUWB, you Orafice of Omaha.
All it takes is for Gov. Palin’s research to turn the spotlight on one or two crony deals from this old goat, and he becomes a drag on Obama’s reelection.
and thus evading the Meals Tax by having it at a private home.
I wonder how much Warren is collecting shilling for socialism.
Warren Buffoon is at it again.
hes about the last friend youve got, barak, so make sure he pays up.
The old coot did say he wanted to pay more taxes - bring your check book and give to you feel better Warren.
Apparently dementia does not means test.....
A typical Kenyan fiasco. They invite Buffy the Tax Deadbeat to their big, expensive shindig and leave Buffy’s secretary, who is paying a tremendous amount of taxes, to sit home alone with her cat and nowhere to go. What a bunch of scumbags the commie ‘RATS are.
Can there be any thinking, rational person out there who can come up with one reason why Obama should be re-elected? BTW, the markets crashed again today.
I think the old duffer has a man-crush on Obama.
Now that “Don’t Ask - Don’t Tell” is rescinded he’s waiting for Commander-In-Chief Obama to come out of the closet.
I would not pay 35 cents to see either one of them.
Seriously, Warren boy is a typical elitist. He make his fund so expensive to keep the little guy our that he so calls “cares” for. But in reality, he is the kind of person who favors moving up the ladder but pulls it behind him so no one else can climb up after him by denying financial success to others. The attitude of, “I have mine, I will make sure you don’t get yours” !
I would pay to see Newt debate Obama, yes siree!
In their bold, self-serving egoisim, the traitors are goosestepping onto the national stage and identifying themselves. The hangman’s rope recognizes neither wealth nor poverty; you betray your country, you meet the hangman.
I'm beginning to wonder if Warren isn't the puppet.
Soros is the Coachman who has Buffett and Obama smoking cigars and partying while they turn into jackasses he can sell to the highest bidder.
