After touching down around 3:15 p.m. at Boeing Field, Obama's first stop will be to a mansion in Seattle's Madrona neighborhood where 250 people will attend a fundraiser. From there, he'll head to former Costco CEO Jim Sinegal's Eastside home at Hunt's Point for a fundraiser there.

Baraq is generating some huge campaign dollars this year from his crony capitalist affiliates. The Dems may have an enthusiasm deficit this fall but they won’t be outgunned monetarily.
“Obama To Visit Seattle During Height Of Tuesday Evening Commute”
Good to be the king.
The locals better get their butts over to the pot shops before the other Washingtonians hit town.
gee you’d think the CEO of Costco would be a capitalist.
When we lived there a few years ago, our Precinct had 17 Republicans and 749 Democrats!!!! They get what they deserve!!!
I remember when the east side was conservative.
One thing about the communists - they’re really good at manipulating people’s minds.
He is, a crony capitalist.
VDH discusses in depth:
Unfortunately, they're all sold out even beforehand.
Yes, makes zero sense for this guy to be a communist lover. It would be nice to know if he’s a sincere rat or just a social climbing rat.
I wonder if one is worse than the other.
Looks like a lot of space in there for some Central American “refugees”.
Re: “gee youd think the CEO of Costco would be a capitalist.”
He’s actually the retired “founder,” so, that’s even more depressing.
He made a prime time speech at the Democrat Convention in 2008, so, he is not even a recent convert.
Revised: Good to be the
Avoiding the press. Avoiding regular people. Collecting the checks and getting out of town.
That delivery truck looks like it’s bringing in money.
Clinton used to do this too. They love to interrupt the lives of the common folk. It makes them feel important.
The fewer trips that Bush took were mostly planned to minimize the inconvenience of the local population. The tyrant left seems to try to maximize it.
Sincere rat. Big-time progressive.
Winner winner, chicken dinner !!
There was a time when they were. Combined with eastern WA, there was at least some balance in the state's vote. However, looking at Nov 2012's vote, they've swung left with Seattle, making WA's middle/right electorate pretty much non competitive.
Watch for more left iniatives to pass easily (and you thought legal pot was liberal)
It would be cheaper for taxpayers and more profitable for the left, if the treasury just wrote the Democrats a check for the cost of the trip - 10% handling fee.
This crap is just more of the leftist money laundering scheme of taking a cut of tax payer money the democrats and obama gave the rich cronies. It is sickening and criminal.
I’ll bet Barry is going to be doing some “evolving” tonight.
I believe the article is referring to the east side of the Seattle metro area...Eastern Washington is still very conservative.
It would be great if somebody could get and publish a list of the attendees of all these fundraisers.
We lived in Downtown on 4th Avenue!!
Oh...we have a condo in Pioneer Square that’s for sale. My husband, when he wants to complain about the neighbors he calls them “liberals”. We also have a place in Portland.
There isn’t much left on the west coast that’s conservative, although Carlsbad CA seems to be an enclave - unfortunately the CA taxes worry us.
loves them enough to get the perks he wants.
Just what Seattle needs, another leftist asshole.
There are so many leftist aholes in Seattle that if assholes were planes, the City of Seattle would be designed a major airport.
Like i needed another reason to NEVER shop Costco ever again....
A couple of years ago i got a free night at the South Point Resort in Las vegas, Dinner voucher for 2 and a free 500 dollar southwest Voucher because this doooosh shut down McCarran airport for one of his fundraisers.
It’s amazing, it costs the taxpayers MILLIONS of dollars so this clown can raise $500,000.
Well, there is supposed to be a 9.0 in Seattle’s future. This would be a great time for it.
After a Presser, Obama usually tries to get as far away from his family as possible by playing Golf, shooting Pool, drinking beer with the folks, or spending more time at his REAL day job: bilking money from Democrat Oligarchs, with all expenses paid for with US Taxpayer Dollars, of course.
I lived at 4th and Wall from 2004-2006.
Obama is the figurehead of the Socialist-Democrat Party of North America flying around the country collecting protection money for the party.
Chicago thugs doin’ what Chicago thugs do.
I’m with you, mowowie. I’ll never set foot in Cosco again.
I wonder if he will come home with a tattoo.
You but what is worse is the TFR over my airport, shuts us down. Of course with the price of Ave fuel at $6.60/gal we weren’t going that far anyway.
I’m writing to you as a friend. As a fellow victim.
I know what it’s like. First you see those those hot black copters in the air. You get so excited your streets and boulevards swell with traffic for hours. And then he is there, right there with you, iPhones snapping away. It feels so good. You become totally gridlocked and verklempt as he leaves.
But then you realize. He was only here for the money. He doesn’t love you. He doesn’t like you. Seattle, it’s best you hear it from me. HE’S A HOOKER. And if you keep satisfying what he wants, he will keep coming back and using you.
Someone should start a list of the 1%s that BO hob nobs with and all the 1%s that pay 30k to be in the same room with him and then trot it out everytime they talk about how bad rich republicans are. He fundraises because he can’t stand being away from people that will pay this much to see him. That must be a huge ego trip for him.
Do you think Seattle would tolerate a statue of a Klansman?
Bellevue is now 33.3% foreign born.
Asian Indians are the leading ethnic group.
In 2008, they voted 90% for Obama, here, and nationally.
White voters are not quite that bad, but bad enough at about 70% Democrat.
The only “Republican” elected in my Congressional District is white state senator who co-sponsored our gay marriage legislation.

Hi Neighbor!! We lived at The Centennial for 5 years!!!
Senegal retired from Costco a year or 2 ago.
Costco is like other large companies - unfortunately, it has those at the top that are libs, but there are many workers at the company that are conservatives. I have a few friends that work at Costco and all are conservatives and they tell me some of their co-workers are as well.
Celebrate lack of voting diversity!
Pretty surprised the Asian Indians would swing left - although I work in the tax dept of a Fortune 500 company and am pretty shocked at how many Obama lovers there were among well educated intelligent young professionals. I suppose it was considered the socially acceptable thing to do.
Re: “Pretty surprised the Asian Indians would swing left”
According to Pew Research, they are the most Hard Left immigrant ethnic group in America.
They are also the best educated and highest paid ethnic group.
The Pew Research data was 90% Left in 2008.
I have not seen a number for 2012.
Historically, in India, they have been knee deep in Marxism since at least World War II.
I have seen two different GOP Congressmen publicly advocate for higher immigrant quotas for Asian Indians.
I can only shake my head in disbelief.
Asian Indians have displaced hundreds of thousands of highly trained American born IT workers.
They have caused wage stagnation in several IT sectors.
And they consistently vote against the principles that Conservatives stand for.
Hi, neighbor, too.
I lived in Queen Anne in 2004-2005.
I walked by your street corner several times a week going to and from work.
During the 2004 election, I saw only one car in Seattle with a Bush bumper sticker, and it was always parked in your neighborhood.
My sister works in IT in Bellevue and has to work with these people. She doesn’t like it. Doesn’t like them so much and besides their food stinks.
Wasn’t me. Would have had my Sonata keyed when I drove to dates in Fremont.
So did my ex-girlfriend at the time.
