Posted on 08/15/2012 5:52:15 PM PDT by Kaslin
The Obama campaign seems to be a little worried about cash and they're willing to attack wealthy Republicans who donate to the Romney campaign without giving their backgrounds or context. Last night, Team Obama sent an email warning of billionaire Sheldon Adelson. Adelson owns the Venetian resort in Las Vegas and funded Newt Gingrich's primary campaign. Now, Adelson is shifting his support to Romney and Democrats aren't happy.
Today, just 72 hours after joining the GOP ticket, Paul Ryan is making a pilgrimage to the Sands' Venetian casino in Las Vegas to kiss the ring of Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire casino magnate who's already donated more than $35 million to Republican groups in this election.
That's the same Sheldon Adelson who gave $15 million to help Newt Gingrich against Mitt Romney in the primary, and said he may give $100 million -- basically, whatever it costs -- to defeat Barack Obama.
We're starting to get a glimpse of how Romney plans to cash in on his vice presidential pick. Before Ryan's even been fully introduced to the American people, he's attending a private fundraiser in Vegas with the top super PAC donor.
We're doing this differently, with ordinary people chipping in whatever they can afford -- but it's going to take a lot more of us to match them. Will you donate $5 or more today?

But who is Sheldon Adelson? He's in the majority of billionaires who is self made. He was raised by poor Jewish immigrants during the Great Depression, his father was a cab driver and through his entrepreneurial spirit, Adelson became what he is today.
As a poor Boston kid, he was an unusually ambitious newsie. One of four children of a cab-driving Jewish Lithuanian immigrant, Adelson was raised during the Great Depression in the Boston suburb of Dorchester. As a child, he worked in a grocery store, butcher shop, laundromat, and hawking newspapers. His first business breakthrough, he says, came at age 12 when he bought the corner newsstand where he'd been working. Adelson then ran through a series of businesses — candy vendor, mortgage broker, court stenographer — before hitting the jackpot in 1979 with Comdex, an influential computer trade show he launched in Las Vegas.
Adelson is an example and product of the American Dream. Instead of using Adelson as an example of success, an example of no matter who you are, you can make it big in America, the Obama campaign is vilifying him and others like him. Also, here's a reality check for President Obama: 86 percent of millionaires are self made and 75 percent of billionaires are self made.
There’s nothing like success to draw criticism. And he is, gasp, a Zionist to boot. The horror, the huge manatee.....
So Obama hates Jews.
Nothing new there.
In other words: he didn't build that
Yes I am being sarcastic
“So Obama hates Jews.
Nothing new there.”
So did the National Socialist Hitler and we can see where that led.
He really should watch out ~ the OBOTS have got their deathsquads up and running already, and today one of their acolytes went over to shoot up the Family Research Council. They’d been earlier targeted by SPLC, so folks should be aware of that additional problem of a detached DNC third-party operative giving the order to hit someone.
Smoot is married to a CAPITALIST?! Isn’t that against Obama’s law?! isn’t her husband a mini Mitt Romney?!
Julianna Skinner Smoot and Lon Barton Johnson were married Saturday in Northport, Mich. The Rev. Thomas H. John Sr. performed the ceremony at the Northport Indian Mission United Methodist Church, where he is pastor.
The bride, 44, is keeping her name. She works in Chicago as a deputy manager for President Obamas re-election campaign. Until March, she was the White House social secretary. She graduated from Smith. She is a daughter of Edward B. Smoot and Julia L. Smoot of Willow Springs, N.C.
The bridegroom, 40, is a partner in TVV Capital, a private fund in Nashville that invests in small and midsize manufacturers and other companies, chiefly in the Southeast. He graduated from Arizona State University. He is a son of Vivian L. Pluff of Onsted, Mich., and Gary S. Johnson of Richland, Pa.

While Obama kisses the azz of George Soros the nazi’s “special” Jewish putz.
Come on, you know Obama and his supporters are neck-deep in pure capitalism. It’s only a good thing when you’re a leftist. Romney’s evil for founding Bain, but an Obama top bundler is a good guy for running Bain at the time they shut down that steel mill and cost that guy with the cancer-victim wife his job. It’s still Romney’s fault because he isn’t a Democrat.
Most muzzies do....
Do they know how to ever say anything that is true?
HOw many dinners have they given at tens of thousands of dollars per plate?
True, bumbles isn't getting the BIG donors this time around like before - but it's not for lack of trying and begging.
and ever hear a president ask you to mail him the money you intend to spend on a wedding gift etc?
Wait, he really said that? Where?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
