Skip to comments.Obama Raises $2.4 Million from Wall Street in one evening (Hey occupier morons check out your god)
Posted on 10/10/2011 7:17:32 AM PDT by Recovering_Democrat
Last night Obama headed to the Upper East Side to wine and dine Wall Street.
The DNC fundraiser at tony restaurant Danielcostattendees $35,800 each, and a source told Ben White at Morning Money that the event netted $2.4 million [...]
Marc Lasry was there, as expected. So was Orin Kramer.
According to Dealbook, the menu included:Maine lobster salad with roasted beets, duos of Black Angus beef, braised short ribs with young spinach, and roasted tenderloin with stuffed potato and hen of the woods.
The meal was prepared by Daniel Boulud himself.

Nothing but an empty shirt, lacking starch, and a bit shabby at that.
I wonder how many Americans can afford such fare?................
Just an alert, Hussein’s fundraiser was about 2 and a half months ago...looks like he waited until the checks cleared before setting his thugs upon the towns.
Isn’t it a shame that our dear leader has to dirty himself with those evil scum./do you really need the tag?
Extortion was part of the plan.
They’re protesting the lefts biggest donors in the past.
They protest the man who they voted for and who did the bailouts but will vote for him again.
The UAW was there protesting, protesting what exactly?
It was their company which received our money to let them keep their jobs.
I have a feeling that because wall street is not giving as much money to the left and not hiring while sitting on profits then this demo is an extortion shakedown done by Van Jones etc much like Sharpton and Jackson does when they want money off a company .
Raises? RAISES? NO! It's more like Fleeces!
It is native to Japan and can be found mostly in the northeastern United States.The mushroom grows in clusters at the bases of trees, mainly oaks. It looks like a ruffled chicken (hence its name) and its camouflage coloring makes it sometimes difficult to hunt and find.
An average "Hen" can weigh three to four pounds, some grow to 100 pounds or more.
The smaller mushrooms are simmered slowly in salted water till tender, then flavored according to ethnic tastes.....or the flights-of-fantasy of an epicurean chef.
They have a deep rich flavor and are chewy.
I keep reading about these DNC fundraisers where the price of admission is $35,800. That seems like an odd number. Is there some significance to that figure?

WHAT???? No arugula?????
The libs on Wall Street are protesting the wrong entity. The buck stops with those who make the rules.
If the protesters were truly honest about who's the most corrupt and not just left wing hacks, I'd join them. How do politicians go to Washington as paupers and retire multimillionaires? Someone needs to explain that to me.
No one makes a politician line his/her pockets to get rich. They do that themselves. In return, they choose do favors for those who buy them.
Solyndra is a prime example. If the protesters were honest, they'd see this as the pay off it is - and it was done with their future earnings.
0bama occupies Wall Street! At $34,000 per head!
My family certainly can not afford it. It is even getting tough to be able to afford a pound of “cheap” ground beef these days even when it is on sale. When I went shopping earlier this week it was over $3 per pound for the cheapest ground beef they had in the meat department.
Needless to say I bought the fryer chickens on sale as a loss leader for $0.79 per pound instead and will be stretching each chicken into at least three dinners for my family of 5. Roast chicken the first night, some kind of chicken casserole with the leftovers the second night and then using the chicken carcass and every bit of the remaining meat meat I can get off of the bones to make a chicken stew, soup, or chicken pot pie.
We will still all have well balanced meals with plenty of protein because I will also include cheap grains and vegetables and fruit such as brown and wild rice, homemade beans, and lots of lower cost vegetables and fruits to go along with the chicken for our meals. Thankfully, I know how to buy rice and grains and dry beans in bulk, and I can cook them from scratch myself so we can make due with less meat per meal.
