Skip to comments.Obama: Country Facing Economic, Political Crisis "This election won't be as sexy as the first one"
Posted on 10/24/2011 7:45:29 PM PDT by kristinn
Testing a re-election theme, President Barack Obama is telling donors during a fundraising rich tour of three western states that the country is suffering from an economic crisis and from a political crisis. "People are crying out for action," he says.
Pointing to elements of his $447 billion jobs plan rejected by Republican lawmakers, Obama said they would likely linger as campaign issues in 2012.
"This is the fight that we're going to have right now, and I suspect this is the fight that we're going to have to have over the next year," Obama told about 240 donors at a fundraising event Monday at the Bellagio hotel and casino in Las Vegas. "The Republicans in Congress and the Republican candidates for president have made their agenda very clear."
In Los Angeles on Monday evening, Obama mingled with Hollywood's royalty. At an intimate dinner with top donors in the Hancock Park home of producer James Lassiter, Obama chatted with movie star Will Smith and former Los Angeles Lakers standout Earvin "Magic" Johnson.
"Sometimes I think people forget how much has gotten done," Obama said, and he urged his supporters to rally once again, at the same time joking, as he often does, that he is older and grayer now. "This election won't be as sexy as the first one."
The Las Vegas fundraiser attracted about 240 people who paid from $1,000 to $35,800 toward Obama's re-election campaign and to the Democratic National Committee. The bigger donors met the president personally.
The dinner at the Lassiter home was cozier, with fewer than 40 donors who paid $35,800 each. Among the sponsors were Troy Carter, the manager of Grammy award winner Lady Gaga.

If only I could forget.
“People are crying out for action.”
We most certainly are: “UNELECT OBAMA”

Sounds like a guy talking to his battered wife...C’mon baby you know I still love you....but now that I have seduced you you’re mine..
This election will be just like the last one - a vote for good or evil. The last election has not worked so well, do we want to have more?
The words “Obama” and “sexy” in one sentence grosses me out.
I don’t know how “sexy” the last one was, but I sure felt like a got a good screwing out of it, against my will.
I believe that is one of the definitions of rape.
Could have done without that reference.
I really do not like Obama. Not at all.
... and every bit as marxist. What a joker. You funny guy. Funny guy.
Wait, what? The last election, 2010 was amazing! Let's have another! Let's kick some marxist butt down the freeway! Never, ever give in; never give up!
Took note of his Hollywood friends....not surprising they STILL have no brainmatter. But then Obama’s after their bucks and they are more than willing to cough it up. Idiots.
Does that mean more or fewer thugs with clubs at the polls?
It means this time they get shot.
One of the political parties actually used the Nuclear Option to block Obama's jobs plan. Now ... which party was that? Oh, yeah ... the Democrats.
We can count on more Holder approved “his people” watching the polls.
“This election won’t be as sexy as the first one.”
Does that mean Chris Matthews won’t be getting the tingle this time?
We Can’t WAIT.....the EXCITEMENT is killing us....GETTING rid of this idgit at the next un”sexy” election is PRIORITY NUMBER ONE!
Only, THEY get shot, not everyone around them. Sight alignment, sight picture. Watch the backscape.
