Obama Campaign Celebrates Independence Day ... with Fundraiser in Paris
Apparently tiring of US soil as a source of campaign dollars, the
Obama campaign is headed overseas -- with its celebrity friends in tow.
The European Obama campaign starts next week in Paris on July 4 with a
reception organized by various fundraising heavy-hitters. Independence
Day fundraisers in Paris – now that’s a flag-waving campaign.
The Obama campaign will host events in Geneva, Switzerland in August
as part of their “European outreach effort.” George Clooney will
headline a fundraiser there, with 150 tickets going for $20,000 per
piece. There’s even more to the bargain: if you go as a couple, the
second ticket is half-off!
With the Obama campaign’s increasingly desperate campaign emails
begging for cash from the American people, perhaps the campaign thinks
they’ll find more fertile soil outside the country. Especially in the
aftermath of the Supreme Court ruling that upholds Obama’s
European-style healthcare plan, Obama’s hoping to cash in on like-minded
folks abroad. Americans don’t believe that Obamacare is a triumph; they
see it as a massive net negative, sucking our coffers dry and handing
us long-term rationing in return. Europeans, however, know nothing else.
The entitlements have already kicked in. What better place to ask for
That also may be the only place Obama can still find cheering throngs.
