Obama Plans To Attend Texas Democrat Fundraiser After Leaving Fort Hood Memorial Service
American Military News ^

Posted on 04/09/2014 11:03:36 AM PDT by YoungAmericanConservative1989

Can you believe the president is going to literally go from a Fort Hood memorial honoring the fallen and then head to a fundraiser hours later? Seriously, where is this guy's advisers?

I work in the building adjacent to his hotel in downtown Houston.

You should see the convoy of city dump trucks blocking the streets.

Traffic nightmare.

You know, if this was a Republican President,
the press would be screaming in full on attack mode.

The AP reports that the money raised at the fundraiser will go to Democratic campaign committees in the House and Senate.

No gravy for Abortion Barbie...she failed too early...bummer because I'd hoped she would be a major sinkhole for Democrat campaign money.

The fundraiser was planned ahead of time. The Fort Hood Memorial was delayed so that the taxpayers would be on the hook for the travel expenses to the party.

After the memorial ceremony, Obama will come to Houston for a congressional fundraising dinner at the home of local attorney John Eddie Williams. The private, high-dollar event also will feature Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Obama will spend the night in Houston before speaking at the LBJ Presidential Library Civil Rights Summit in Austin Thursday and then returning to Washington.

Several roads around my workplace will be closed - so I’m going to be leaving early today.

The Associated Press obtained an invitation to the April 9 event where tickets start at $16,200 a person and go up to $64,800 for a couple. Democratic leaders Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are also expected to attend.

Obama, Reid, Pelosi pimping for dollars from their millionaire supporters.

...I'd be surprised if Sheila Jackson Lee didn't sneek in the back door to be under Obama's wing.

The house and land for Mr. Williams house is valued by the appraisal district at a little over $17,000,000. Of course, the main house is a 25,000 square foot house.

And Republicans are the party of the “rich”?

"You should see the convoy of city dump trucks blocking the streets"

Houston should have used garbage trucks, it would have been more appropriate in this case.

Seems “Dirty” Harry Reid has his own “Koch Brothers” pumping big bucks into the Democrat coffers.

No time to visit those still in the hospital, but lots of time to pimp for cash.

Is there any doubt what Dubya would have done?

A nice picture of the Poser and Abortion Barbie would be nice minutes after he leaves Ft. Hood just for the finer touch.

Normally, I would watch this memorial, however, with King Obozamma there I am not watching it.

President and Laura Bush has already visited the soldiers but no news about that..Bush is the only one that has cared about these boys..

Obama is a disgrace to human kind..He needs to be impeached ...The only reason Obama came was for his filthy fund raiser and to give an excuse for us to pay for it..

Will the money raised help Sheila Jackson Lee get to her “discerned, destinated destiny”?

Listen to Obama closely this time. He said the event at Fort Hood was about “love”. He’s got the same doublespeak manual as Jeb Bush. It’s definitely a propaganda talking point as he threaded “the love” throughout the early portion of his remarks. Obama mentioned the military brass long before he brought up the fallen who were killed by “love of country”. If love is going to be something bad now, I guess I love Obama.

“Obama Plans To Attend Texas Democrat Fundraiser After Leaving Fort Hood Memorial Service”

My prayers go up to the Fort Hood victims and their families. And, yes I can believe it, given he flew to LV for a fund raiser the morning after Benghazi.

On a related note, most of you have probably heard that there was a devasting mudslide in the town of Oso in Western WA (a.k.a. the “other Washington”) a few weeks ago. It was a huge slide - approx 1 mile square and mud was up to 60-70 feet deep in some places. It took out 30-40 homes and everything in or near them, a main road, and the death count is 36 so far (still 10 unaccounted for - - they’re still searching).

A couple of the local radio hosts mentioned last week that the Prez should come; and, if a petition was started on the WH website and it received 100k votes, he’d have to come or explain why he wasn’t coming. These are not conservative hosts by any means, and one of them said that while he was going to Oso, he could swing through his “ATM” in Medina as that’s all he does is go to fund-raisers when he’s in Seattle. Medina is a very influential area near Bellevue on the eastside of the Seattle area (across Lake Washington from the city of Seattle).

Someone apparently did start a petition on the WH site, but not sure how many signatures it got. Found out earlier this week that Obama plans to come here on Apr 22 or so. The Director of Fema and Sec of HS or some big offical from Homeland Security were here last weekend and they said they couldn’t believe the devastation, other rescuers, etc. said they’ve never seen anything so bad. The radio host said he thought they probably called Obama and told him he had to come out here. Like he said, if this were on the east coast, the news would be all over it; however, since it happened in the Pacific NW, news faded quickly. He’ll probably swing through Medina while he’s here seeing Oso and have another fund-raising trip paid for by the taxpayers.
