    Obama Heads to San Francisco for Fundraising Swing.....

    Well here ya go back to some more partying for Obama.....getting back on that Ole Campaign Trail while Making a Second Tour Over Gun control. Nothing exceeds like excess with this Guy.

    President Barack Obama was headed West Wednesday to deliver a speech in Denver promoting gun control measures. But in the evening, Obama shifts to fundraising.

    The president is scheduled to attend two fundraisers in San Francisco for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), which assists Democrats running for the House. Both events will have limited coverage—just a small group of "pool" reporters will be permitted to record Obama's remarks.

    The first event will be a cocktail reception for about 100 attendees at the home of Kat Taylor and Tom Steyer, a Democratic official confirmed to the White House pool following previous news reports. Steyer is a hedge fund billionaire and environmentalist as well as a prominent Democratic fundraiser.

    Tickets to the event run from $5,000 to $34,200, according to the official. Two supporters will be allowed to attend because they won a DCCC contest that drew 78,000 entrants.

    Obama's second fundraising stop will be a dinner at the home of Ann and Gordon Getty, the official confirmed. Gordon Getty is a billionaire philanthropist and music composer from the Getty Oil family. The dinner, according to the official, is an annual DCCC event and raised about $1.7 million last year.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, whose district includes San Francisco, will attend, as will DCCC Chairman Rep. Steve Israel of New York. Both are slated to speak.....snip~

    Obama heads to San Francisco for fundraising swing


    Yes the Hedge fund billionaire and the billionaire Philanthropist.....those 99% we all know. Then he will stay over night and go to two more fundraisers in Silicon Valley. Bring in some of those Hollywood Stars. Talk more about gun Control and how he wants something done. Because it is unacceptable for him to lose.

    Looks Like reality has another plan on that gun control issue. But hey he will at the very least accept nothing but the Best, while graciously losing.

    Great plan. And good time to raise money for campaigns, as we know the Koch brothers got a boatload of welfare checks from the republcians recently.

    ... the 20th century has been characterized by three developments of great political importance: The growth of democracy, the growth of corporate power, and the growth of corporate propaganda as a means of protecting corporate power against democracy.
