Obama Coming to Hollywood; You Can Attend for a Mere Giant Pile of Cash

Categories: Politics

The LGBT Leadership Council is hosting an "LGBT Campaign Briefing and Reception" at Hollywood's Westin Diplomat Hotel, and you can still grab a ticket. Indeed, you can see President Barack Obama, the leader of the free world and famous Kenyan socialist, for the rock-bottom price of $2,500.

Though a deadline isn't mentioned on Obama's website, organizers said registrations are due by Thursday to allow time for Secret Service security checks. You can RSVP (with a credit card, of course) at the event page on the Obama campaign site. If you pony up $10,000 instead, you get listed as a host.

South Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, also chair of the Democratic National Committee, will be there too.

Obama's swing through Broward and Palm Beach has two other stops that day -- a private fundraiser in Golden Beach ($15 grand per plate) and another in Palm Beach Gardens for $20,000 a head, or $50,000 for the VIP reception, according to the Miami Herald.

I guess you can't raise $157 million -- more than the entire remaining Republican field -- by having free speeches at Wings Plus.

Exactly Steve,  The price they are quoting is per table.  It's very reasonable for anyone to go to this function.  I wonder how much a George W Bush function would have cost?

The "rock bottom price" mentioned in the article is b.s.The true rock bottom price is $250.Why do you lie so much?

I will be there.  Money is no object to attend a benefit such as this.  I shall report on all the festivities on my website.  Don't expect me to be objectionable, for I am one of those true Liberals out there!

I applaud your commitment and maturity.  Almost all liberals want someone else to be taxed to support their beliefs.

Give until it really, really hurts.

There are people who will use their money to support what ever political party or politician they want to support. That is what Tamarac Talk means.

Sign up Chaz the Fool.  He's got the money and the inclination.  Besides, any good and true liberal should be thrilled to give until it hurts, as Barak is the chosen one.
