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.

“High dollar” = $15,000 a plate.

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?
