Obama To Celebs: “You’re The Ultimate Arbiter Of Which Direction This Country Goes.”
This just unbelievable. At a NYC fundraiser last night, President Obama essentially ceded responsibility for the direction of America to Hollywood elites and others who can afford his $40,000 a plate fundraisers. From SF Gate:
The president and first lady Michelle Obama made a rare joint fundraising appearance when they visited the home of actors Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. The intimate dinner banked about $2 million, with 50 people paying $40,000 each.
The dinner was the Obama campaign’s latest attempt to bank on celebrities for fundraising help in countering the growing donor enthusiasm from Republicans supporting Mitt Romney’s presidential bid.
Speaking in a dimly lighted, art-filled room, Obama told supporters they would play a critical role in an election that would determine a vision for the nation’s future.
“You’re the tie-breaker,” he said. “You’re the ultimate arbiter of which direction this country goes.”
What? No, Mr. President, YOU are the ultimate arbiter of the direction of this country. It’s called being a leader. Of course, a real leader doesn’t continually try to blame others for his failed record, attend fundraisers, and recycle the same tired speech over and over again. Maybe he should start doing his job instead of worrying about how to keep it. Pathetic.
