(CNN) - On the heels of raising $75 million in July for his reelection bid, President Obama kicks of this month’s cash haul with two lucrative events in Connecticut Monday night.
Obama addressed an early-evening reception in Stamford where 500 supporters were on hand, each of whom paid at least $500 to attend the event, according to a campaign official. Later the president heads to Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s beachfront estate in Westport, Connecticut, for a sit-down dinner where 60 attendees have paid $35,800 to gain admittance. Actress Ann Hathaway and television writer Aaron Sorkin are listed as co-hosts of the event and Joanne Woodward, the widow of actor Paul Newman, is also expected to attend, according to the Los Angeles Times. In all, the president will raise at least $2.4 million from both events before touching back down in Washington late Monday night.
Democrat voters will be happy since they love the elite, rich and famous of Hollywood who most likely don't pay their fair share of taxes and Obama most likely doesn't care. Is Raffaelo Follieri invited to keep Ann Hathaway company?
Ah. He loves to hang out with the One Percenters. Lovely...
obama an his 1% ers-
Btw, what ever happened to his OWS thugs?
Obama and his rich, privileged friends closing down public beaches so he can raise even more money instead of doing his job as president. Three and a half years and office and still unemployment about the same, Gitmo still open, American service men and women still dying, and the country more divided than it's been since the civil war. Keep up the good work, Obama.
It's impossible for Obama to con enough Americans out of their money after 4 years of failure. Hope and Change has denigrated into Hoping to Change the Topic from his Record. We'd have to be certifiably insane to put him the Whitehouse for 4 more years of this nightmare.
I read the perfect post today:
I don't know why Obama keeps campaigning, he could be doing the job of President today if he wanted to!
Doesn't this guy ever work? He is either golfing or attending $35k/plate dinners with the Hollywood super rich! The rest of us worked today...
All of the money President Obama gets will not get him re-elected if he doesn't pay more attention to us.If the less fortunate do not get treated better and stay home he will not get e-elected .Any challenge by a legitimate Demo would probably cost him his re-election. Traveling to fundraisers and play time are not going to do it.
And mitt is taking a day off at his lake front home in New Hampshire.While his horse is in the olymics. His La Jolla house is being built and the one in Mass is just waiting for his return. How come after two election cycles the repos cant find a real candidate? They are either crooks or crazies. Tell us about your tax returns mittens. He is so for the common man.
So glad the Republicans have their very own "hollywood type" in Clint Eastwood. Now they can harp on some
other trivia that they do so well.
Obama should learn that a penny not saved on personal attack ads about romney's high school grades is a penny earned. Mabye then he would have as much money as Romney.
President obama &his team hope such money dat they wnt 2 raised as fundraiser dos not cause ripples 2 d teemin populace economically.
