Washington (CNN) – After raising just under $2 million at three fundraisers in Florida on Tuesday, President Barack Obama was at it again with a fundraiser in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday evening.
The closed-press event was held at the W Hotel across the street from the White House. A campaign official confirmed that approximately 20 supporters attended the event, each paying $40,000 for a ticket, meaning the president raised at least $800,000.

It will not be cheap trying to buy enough ad space to redefine the issues of this 2012 race to something more "Obama Friendly" than the economy and unemployment levels. Oh, and the exploding national debt. In fact, personal attacks alone can run upwards of $500 million if he is doing them coast-to-coast. He had better throw a few more Obama/ Biden 2012 parties. I guess this will still be easier than coming up with a plan forward other than Raise Taxes....

$40,000.00 a ticket for the Obama D.C. fund raiser ... while Obama demonizes the rich ... what a HYPOCRITE !!!
Mitt is used to having an overwhelming money and advertising advantage. It will be interesting to see how he does against someone who has just as much campaign money.
Probably just skimmed it off of Solyndra

Gee... $40,000 a seat??? Doesn't sound like there were a lot of 99%ers there! I wonder how many lobbyists, trial lawyers and union leaders were there paying their way to the Whitehouse? Do they have to publish the names of these people?
When my candidate raises a lot of money, it's because we live in a democracy, and he's clearly the people's choice. When the opposing candidate raises a lot of money, it's because he gives into special interests, is corrupt, and is just trying to buy the election.
And all happens while traveling around at the taxpayers expense, gotta love this abuse of power. This clown has to go.
