CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller reported from the glitzy $40,000 a person Obama fundraiser at the home of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. Yes, you read that right, $40,000 each.  Ponder that as you read this next tweet:

Mark Knoller ✔ @markknoller

Pres Obama said he knows there are "still a lot of people hurting out there...we constantly remind ourselves how much more we have to do."

While rubbing elbows with New York’s rich and famous, Obama paused to remember the Americans suffering under his economy, how sweet.

Here’s a peek at the menu — steak from the restaurant Marea:

What he meant to say:

Pres Obama said he knows there are “still a lot of people hurting out there...we constantly remind ourselves how much more we have than they do.”

They replaced the stairways with big wide ramps, so Trigger could clop between floors easily.

The idiocy that is spoken by President Choom Brother defies all description.

He is Bruce Ismay in a lifeboat bemoaning “all the poor people still trapped on the Titanic” while he is safe.

And stuffing his face at a $40,000-a-plate affair? Irony and pretentiousness at maximum levels.

Thanks, American liberals. Thanks a lot.

Thanks for nothing. Thanks for less than nothing.

"Pres Obama said he knows there are "still a lot of people hurting out there...we constantly remind ourselves how much more we have to do."

...and that's exactly what he would say to an audience that's completely guided by their emotions. Those who use a little bit more than their reptilian brains might say, "That's true, and those who are hurting the most live in places occupied by, and run by the Democrat Party, places like Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, Boston, New York, Miami and Los Angeles!"

Wasn’t this the dinner that the “commoner” was supposed to be at, along with Vogue editor Anna Wintour, she of “Devil Wears Prada”-inspiration infamy?

I wonder how that all went.

Obama is Randal Flagg. His loyal followers will accept no other ideology.

Randall Flagg made his first official appearance in the 1978 apocalyptic novel The Stand. In it, he is trying to build a civilization in his name in the United States after a plague has killed off most of the population. Flagg’s backstory is vague, unknown even to him — Flagg states that at some point he just “became” — although he has memories of being a Marine, a Klansman, and a Viet Cong member, as well as having a hand in the kidnapping of Patty Hearst. Stationed in Las Vegas, Flagg attracts people who are drawn to destruction, power and fascism. Flagg uses crucifixion, torture, and other torments as punishment for those who are disloyal. His followers reorganize the society, and rebuild the city. Flagg plans to attack and destroy the other emerging civilization—Mother Abagail's "Free Zone" in Boulder, Colorado—to become the dominant society in the former United States.[1]

Anyone recall that speech he gave a while ago where he stated while others may suffer economically but he wasn’t worried about himself or his family? They would be ok.

It’s just a matter of feeding both their egos and their false righteousness.

They “care” about “the little people”, mostly just in words and policy support. This is their way of deeming themselves righteous, and it doesn’t require any repentance or recognition of their depraved state.

I saw these pix on the Daily Mail story about Barack Kardashian's jaunt to NYC, and wondered, "Freepers?":


Protest: Not all New Yorkers were delighted to see Mr Obama visit the city on Thursday



Some people came up with creative slogans for their placards ahead of Obama's visit to Greenwich Village


Good work by whoever they are.

Edited for more accurate description of attitude at the big soiree.

It is amazing the Hollyweirdos have $40K to spend to get the Obaminator elected, so he can take money from the middle class. Maybe they should put on a few fundraisers to directly help the poor and laid off workers. Think anyone would show up?

$40K for a Hollywierd dinner only gets you Carrots, Apples, Oats and a couple sugar cubes.

The bottom line is they love all the access to the White House, air force 1 and other government goodies that Obama provides for them. The parties, the power. Hollywood lefties are pigs. They don’t really care about anyone but themselves.

They are the shallow villains they play in the movies.

His answer, run to Sarah Jessica Parker’s house for more money.

There really are two Americas.

Thanks for pointing that out to us BO.

We need to protect ourselves against those Hollywood types. Redistribute THEIR wealth as they obviously have too much. Stop seeing their movies or buying their clothes or magazines.

http://forums.hannity.com/showthread.php?2427477-Obama-s-campaign-ripping-off-the-taxpayers

"Obama is heading to New York City tonight for a series of star-studded fundraiser events. However, a quick detour to Ground Zero means that the taxpayers will be stuck with part of the bill for Obama's fundraisers. Apparently the President has been including quick "official" detours every time he goes on fundraiser trips. The reason is that although the White House must still pay "their share" of the cost for the part of the trip that is not "official business," the way the formula is designed allows the White House to put a larger share of the costs on the taxpayers' backs, thus saving the Obama campaign money."
