Obama heads to L.A. for fundraising push

(CNN) - President Barack Obama will spend part of Monday hobnobbing with celebrities and other power-brokers in Los Angeles, continuing a West Coast trip that includes town hall events and fundraisers for his re-election campaign.

The first L.A. event will be hosted by "Modern Family" star Jesse Tyler Ferguson at the House of Blues in West Hollywood. With 1,000 attendees set to spend $250 each for the speech and a concert, the event is expected to help Obama collect a minimum of $250,000.

    "The fundamental choice now, he argued, was to go forward with his and fellow Democrats' plans or use the "old worn-out ideas that were tried in the last decade."

    Extremely poor choice of words again by Obama. He's offered nothing new except inventive accounting, broken promises, while pushing old worn-out democrat ideas. His record speaks for itself. You don't see him touting successes on economy, jobs, foreign policy during his administration, because he can't. Don't be fooled into believing that the same failures will work. It's time for a real change. Unfortunately, Democrats will not challenge Obama. If truly challenged from within, he'd not stand a chance.

    I advise you, is Be Tough, Stern, and Make your thoughts known to public, clearly and out-loud. Listen, It is the time to make our dollar very strong. Listen, If Dollar is strong, Oil goes down in price, when Oil goes down at price, Inflation falls, Mean while do not forget push "Energy Efficient Cars" Made in USA, not India, or China, because, they drive employment. Direct Banks not to charge with their GREED. Punish them if they do with executive order. Focus on Manufacturing, Agriculture. Milk is way up, give farming subsides, not to Wall-street. Medicare fraud nab and bust and put them in Jails....o.k,
