Its biggest donation - $2 million - came from telecom billionaire Irwin Jacobs, who had not previously given to the Obama super PAC. And Priorities received $1 million each from Chicago media mogul Fred Eychaner, an Obama campaign bundler and prominent gay rights supporter who had previously donated $500,000, and star actor Morgan Freeman, a newcomer to big-political-check writing.
It also received $750,000 from billionaire heir Jon Stryker, a big donor to gay rights causes, and $333,333 from billionaire media entrepreneur Haim Saban, who was among a handful of major Democratic donors who had been intensely courted for months to write a big check to support Obama and his Democratic congressional allies.

If Obama is so agaist the rich, why is he accepting all these contributions? His class warfare rhetoric is just another lie.

Another sign that the Obama campaign has a dangerous challenge on its hands when it comes to fundraising
Romney and Republican National Committee have more cash in the bank than Obama and the Democratic National Committee after pummeling their counterparts two months in a row.
Romney also proved in June that hes able to bring in heaps of cash from small-dollar donors an area long considered Obamas turf.
When combined with Republicans massive super PAC cash advantage, the GOP fundraising surge spells trouble for the White House, which is relying on hard money and a groundswell of small donations to give Obama four more years.
Romneys campaign and its allied fundraising committees reported $170 million in cash reserves at the end of June. Thats $26 million more than Obama and the top Democratic committees had in their coffers, according to the latest campaign finance reports released Friday.
Part of the reason for Romneys cash advantage is that Obama outspent the Republican by $50 million over the last three months as part of the strategy to define Romney before he can gain traction.
Media Billionaires donating to Obama.
Does that help anyone figure out why he is the darling of the media? The owners tell the Journalists what to report.They hire those who have no conscience and will obey.
And I’m sure everyone who complained about Scott Walker’s campaign war chest will now rail against the huge money interests trying to buy the White House for Obama.
Yep. Any minute now....
Gays, Blacks and Jews going for Obama.....YAWN....they will ALWAYS be for the Democrat and the mosre VILE the Better!!
