Obama’s Hollyw’d Fundraiser Was Just Postponed

From The Hill:

Obama cancels LA trip as ‘no’ votes on Syria resolution pile up

By Justin Sink | September 05, 2013

President Obama has scrapped a planned two-day trip to Los Angeles early next week ahead of a congressional vote on a military strike against Syria.

The cancellation of the trip suggests the urgency with which Obama needs to press his case to win approval from Congress for military action.

It certainly does suggest "urgency," if Obama is willing to forego a fundraiser. But it turns out he really isn’t cancelling. He is just postponing it.

“The president’s trip to California has been canceled,” a White House official said. “He will remain in Washington to work on the Syrian resolution before Congress.” …

Again, this is not true. The trip has not been cancelled, it has been postponed.

The president had been scheduled to speak to an AFL-CIO convention while in California, in what the White House had billed as a continuation of his middle class jobs tour.

A cynical person might suggest that ‘the Syria crisis’ gave Obama a great excuse to skip having to speak before the AFL-CIO, who just happen to be furious with him over Obama-Care.

He was also scheduled to attend a $32,400 per plate dinner at the home of Marta Kauffman, the co-creator of the sitcom "Friends."

According to an email obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, the fundraiser would be rescheduled for a date in “the near future.” Attendees were also offered a refund of their donation to the Democratic National Committee…

You see? The fundraiser was not cancelled at all. Obama would never miss a chance to rub elbows with Hollywood celebrities, and build up his war chest for the real war — the 2014 midterms.

  1. Not to worry. I’m sure the queers and perverts in Russia gave him a big check.

    Half a Trillion dollars cut from Defensive budget and another half a trillion dollar cut on the board coming, and Obama with no plan what’s so ever.

    The military helicopters zooming over my house tell me something’s up. Perhaps it’s ripe recruiting time for those that could not find jobs after high school graduation.

    With 500 billion dollar cuts in defense and 500 billion more ready to be cut, how come they are still recruiting and lying to young men they’ll get an education when it’s sequestered.
