The Left ‘Protest’ Obama At Fundraisers

From an unquestioning Agence France-Presse:

Demonstrators protest in front of Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles, California as President Barak Obama attends a major fundraiser for his 2012 campaign.

‘Disappointed’ supporters greet Obama in California

Fri Apr 22, 2011

LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Hundreds of protesters, mostly Hispanics demanding immigration reform, gathered to vent their disappointment with US President Barack Obama as he visited California.

Many of the activists said they were Obama supporters but felt let down by the slow pace of the change he promised in his 2008 White House run

Around 200 protesters waved signs and chanted: "Obama, keep your promise!" outside the Sony Pictures studio in Culver City, west of Los Angeles, where Obama attended a fundraising dinner.

"Where’s our change? We need money for housing, not for war! We need money for health care, not for war!" they chanted.

Wait a minute. We thought these protesters were "Hispanics demanding immigration reform." Or is taxpayer provided housing and taxpayer provided health care now part and parcel of ‘immigration reform’?

Some protesters reproached Obama for not doing enough to recognize the 1915 Armenian Genocide, while other activists demonstrated against scientific testing on animals and pacifists called for an end to war.

In other words, they were ‘protesting’ Obama for obviously nonsensical — that is to say, safe complaints. Not over the real problems that he has inflicted on the country with his failed collectivist policies.

They warned Obama he could not count on their votes if he failed to do more to meet their demands.

Yes. They are going to vote for Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann if he doesn’t change his ways.

Perhaps we are cynical, but we believe we see the liver spotted hand of George Soros behind all of these spontaneous protests. It certainly is no accident that Mr. Obama chose to begin his campaign in the most liberal bastions of the the United States — Los Angeles and San Francisco.

So what would be a better place or better time to hire some protesters to complain that Mr. Obama is not governing far enough to the left? What a subtle way to convince middle America that Obama really is ‘a centrist,’ after all. ‘You see, the left is furious with him!’

It’s far more likely that this is just Mr. Soros and the other Democrat Party fathers trying to give Mr. Obama his own version of Bill Clinton’s ‘Sister Soulja’ moment. One phony $76,000 ‘protest’ at a time.

    “Hundreds of protesters, mostly Hispanics demanding immigration reform, gathered to vent their disappointment with US President Barack Obama as he visited California.”

    I’m all for immigration reform as long as the reform gets rid of the Kennedy loopholes and we go back to the way it was in the ’70s. Round up all the tonks running around illegally and ship them back to where they were spawned and crackdown on the bovine excrement going on down on the southern border.

    “Some protesters reproached Obama for not doing enough to recognize the 1915 Armenian Genocide,”

    WTF!!!! Not to be insensitive but why should get involved in something going on in Armenia? It thought that was the job of the UN. Of course if we had done something, world opinion, especially the budding democracies in South America and the Middle East would have screamed bloody murder.

    “They warned Obama he could not count on their votes if he failed to do more to meet their demands.”

    Maybe they’ll vote for Ralph Nader or Dennis Kucinich, we can only hope.

    Saw where a lady paid a fortune for a plate dinner for Obama fundraiser, stood up and sang a song she made up and security escorted her. Bet it was worth it.
