Skip to comments.President Obama’s $1 Million Pizza Party In Detroit - (Little Ceasars)
Posted on 04/09/2012 7:58:15 PM PDT by WayneM
President Barack Obama is coming to the Motor City for a $1 million pizza party being thrown for him compliments of Denise Ilitch, daughter of Little Caesars founders Mike and Marian Ilitch. Ilitch is opening her home April 18 for the fundraiser where movers and shakers are being asked to pony up thousands to add to his re-election coffer while getting a chance to rub shoulders with the most powerful man on the planet. Im honored to have been asked, by the Obama campaign to host, Ilitch said of the event she and husband, Jim Scalici, will hold at their Metro Detroit home. . . . When asked what she planned to serve, she said: Pizza! But, well be serving it on sterling silver plates!
The price of admission isnt for those on a budget. $40,000 buys access to the cocktail reception, formal photo with Obama and dinner. $10,000 buys dinner and a photo.

Tried them once, and didn’t like the pizza. Don’t have to worry about me going back.
They go to lavish parties while we struggle to survive.
Just another day in Obamaland. :(
Little Ceasar’s Pizza.
Now there’s a boycott that I can join painlessly.
Worst Pizza on the planet.
I can’t believe they are still in business.
...wonder how much of our money Obama gave to Little Caesar’s.....
"honored" to have been asked to "ask" people to fork over thousands of dollars?
gotta hand it to ol' P.T. Barnum.....there really *is* one born every minute.
I don’t think I’ve ever tried Little Caesar’s. And now I certainly won’t.
I tried it for the first time a few months back, not good pizza.
obama parties with fellow one-percenters
Wow, their pepperoni pizza is $5 for a large, or at least was.
Guess you get a lot of pizzas for one million dollars.
One of the posts linked to story (on Michigan’s richest):
“Mike Illitch is one of the slum lords making Detroit look bad.”
I guess I’ll have to give up the cheap $5 pizza...he’s not only a Bath-House Barry contributor, he may also be a slum lord.
For a $5.00 pepperoni pizza it is not bad. $2.00- $3.00 more and you can customize it.
If they are backers for obama I will not be going back.
Their pizza sucks. Now I know why.
My bet is they will serve a competitor’s pizza for the Bammy dinner.

I guess I won’t be going to Little Caesar’s anymore since they support America’s Caesar.
Yikes! I’ve been a supporter of Little Ceasar’s because of their program to help veterans. I guess those days are over. Back to Pizza Hut I guess.
>>If they are backers for obama I will not be going back. <<
Yep — there are a lot of pizzas in the sea. No zero-backers for me.
I’ll never buy another za from LC.
The pizza will be way below the opulent standard of much of what the Obamas partake in. Obama does hamburgers now and then, but probably for the photo ops of him being just like the average person (yeah, right). I wonder if Michelle is going to be upset that this is obviously beneath her five star standard. LCs pizza is pretty poor even as far as low end pizza is concerned.
This may backfire on LCs when it is publicized that they are big Obama supporters. Many Conservatives may stop eating their pizza.
Bye bye Little Caesars. Not that I ate much pizza from them since high school.
Glad I don’t like their pizza. As with most big Pizza chains, their pizza used to be pretty good, but has went WAY downhill during recent years.
We cook home made pizzas now, which are FAR better. I know of some local pizza places that blow away the national chains in quality too.
You’d probably get more taste if you just eat the cardboard box the little Ceasers pizza comes in.
Basically the worst pizza in the world.
$1,000,000 worth of $5 (for a LARGE) pizza will do wonders to promote anti-obesity./s
So now I guess Michelle Antoinette’s new slogan will be “Let them eat pizza”, eh?
At opensecrets.com it looks like the family gives to all parties. The patriarch, Michael, gave sizable chunks to Giuliani and Romney. His wife likes to give $28K to the Republican Senatorial COmmittee. Most of the rest goes to local pols of all parties (levin, Stupak) and movers (Rangel, Schumer). The family also seems to actually help the local poor as well as legit charities elsewhere (ND flood victims).
These folks also own local sports franchises, so they may be addicted to gov. assistance propping up Detroit as it circles the drain.
More reason not to ever patronize Little Ceasar’s crap.
