    Protesters hit high-end Obama fundraiser

    San Francisco -- ***Protestors in high-end fundraiser - see below***

    Motorcade left the Intercontinental Hotel at 9 am local and arrived at the St. Regis for President Obama's last Bay area fundraiser. A couple dozen demonstrators are on a corner across the street from the hotel. They have signs - "Yes We Cannabis" and "Protect Marijuana Patients Rights" - and are chanting something your pooler couldn't make out. One of them also has sign of Uncle Sam's face with "LIAR" written on his hat.

    About 200 donors were at the breakfast fundraiser, per a Democratic official.Your pooler counted 15 tables with 10 chairs each, however, and not all tables were full, including one in the back where Valerie Jarrett, Jay Carney and Patrick Gaspard sat with two other people. Tickets are $35,800 each. The money goes to The Victory Fund, a joint account of the Obama campaign and the DNC. $5,000 goes to the campaign, and $30,800 goes to DNC.

    Mr. Obama was in the middle of his remarks when a woman in a white suit stood up and said, Mr. President we wrote you a song. POTUS tried to get her to wait until later, but she persisted and the table of 10 broke into a song that pointed out they'd just spent $5,000 donating to his campaign and went on to protest the treatment of Pfc. Bradley Manning. The woman stayed standing as they sang. Mr. Obama looked to Ms. Pelosi and asked, Nancy did you do this? Ms. Pelosi had a look on her face, as she stared at the singing group, that definitely said she did not. The song - will send quotes after transcribe - talked about Bradley Manning and how he is "alone in a cell..."
    DRUDGE: Protesters hit high-end Obama fundraiser...<BR><BR> 'We paid our dues -- were's our change?'

    So some idiots that praise a traitor interrupted Obama and made him, Nancy P yo, look down right stupid. My amusement at the moment is quite high. However the President SHOULD have said "Nice song but the man is a traitor to our country and will be executed as soon as possible". Which, really should have been done MONTHS ago.

    SONG LYRICS
    Here it is:

    Dear Mr. President we honor you today sir
    Each of us brought you $5,000
    It takes a lot of Benjamins to run a campaign
    I paid my dues, where's our change?
    We'll vote for you in 2012, yes that's true
    Look at the Republicans - what else can we do
    Even though we don't know if we'll retain our liberties
    In what you seem content to call a free society
    Yes it's true that Terry Jones is legally free
    To burn a people's holy book in shameful effigy
    But at another location in this country
    Alone in a 6x12 cell sits Bradley
    23 hours a day is night
    The 5th and 8th Amendments say this kind of thing ain't right
    We paid our dues, where's our change?

    One of the singers gave your pooler the lyrics, written out on the back of the menu for the fundraiser.
    Basically, Obama got RickRolled at a high $$ luncheon

    This is friggin hilarious. Obama would need to run a poll in SF before making a statement of such conviction. It might not be popular to hold traitors accountable in SF so he isn't about to take a stand one way or the other until he sees the poll results.

    What, do you think he has leadership qualities or something?

    I'm just amused that a big ritzy fundraiser he got this treatment. The levels of funny in this are too many to count.

    "Robosexual rights" protests are funnier.

    He gets it every time he comes to SF. You would think he has learned that nothing good ever comes from that city.

    Oh, where are the masses of DP posters who are as offended by such treatment of the president by liberal protesters as they are that Texas news man?

    In Berkley it wouldn't shock me in the least.
