(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.
