In a powerful display of profound disappointment with President Obama, some of the Democratic Party's biggest donors gathered Tuesday - not inside his tony San Francisco fundraiser at the W Hotel, but outside on the sidewalks carrying signs in protest of his policies.
"I don't even know what he stands for," said Susie Tompkins Buell, a co-founder of the Esprit de Corps clothing company and one of the most generous Democratic Party donors in the nation - instrumental in backing such powerhouse progressive organizations as the Democracy Alliance and Media Matters.
Tompkins Buell, a longtime friend of Hillary Rodham Clinton who was among the former presidential candidate's biggest donors in 2008, has long played a starring role in San Francisco as a hostess for presidents, top legislators and world leaders at fundraisers to generate money for progressive campaign causes.

I see as a businesswoman, she is also incredibly stupid.
Was Pelosi in the dinner or on the sidewalk?
If that doesn’t show out of touch the left’s ideaology is with mainstream america I don’t know what does! Obama has wrecked the economy,broken the bank with spending,increased the gov’t control over peoples lives....and these Idiots STILL aren’t happy. The left are the Barbarian Hoarde of our day! They can’t be dealt with...reasoned with or expected to live along side reasonable people...only defeated!(Much like ISLAM!)
Yes indeed, those peasants are revolting, Sire!
From your hotlink: “ - - - Anna Hawken McKay, wife of Rob McKay - a wealthy philanthropist whose father founded the Taco Bell empire. As she stood on the sidewalk with other protesters, McKay vowed to be part of a protest of 5,000 Americans who will circle the White House on Nov. 6 - a year to the day from the 2012 election. - - - “
“I don’t even know what he stands for,”
