Suckers! Donors pay $30K each to dine with dear leader

Our dear comrade leader attended a fund raising dinner at the ritzy Four Seasons restaurant in NY on July 27th. About 60 well heeled donors paid $30K each to break bread with their messiah but he actually had the stones to go off and eat in a private area with a couple of his commissars. Suckers! (story here from the NY Post)

The big spenders who shelled out $30,400 a head for dinner with President Obama at the Four Seasons restaurant and at Anna Wintour’s house didn’t actually break any bread with him.

After starting Tuesday night at a dinner for 60 high-rolling Democratic supporters hosted by hedge-fund billionaire Marc Lasry, Obama headed to a private room at the Four Seasons to wolf down steak, potatoes and broccoli with two aides before heading to Wintour’s Greenwich Village home.

Obama arrived at the Four Seasons at 5 p.m. Spies said he gave a short speech and schmoozed with 60 attendees, including Lasry and Joan Ganz Cooney, wife of Blackstone Group’s Pete Peterson, and ex-Martha Stewart CEO Sharon Patrick, sitting briefly at each table before dining alone.

Jeez, what a snob. I wonder if any of these suckers asked for their money back. I suppose they are so in love with the guy that they consider any face time, no matter how brief, a leg-tingling event. He is, after all, the One.

At 7 p.m., the president headed to Wintour’s, where the Vogue editor-in-chief introduced him to 40 guests at her dinner attended by fashion royalty including Diane von Furstenberg, Calvin Klein, Vera Wang, Tory Burch, Harvery Weinstein and Marchesa co-founder Georgina Chapman, Gap designer Patrick Robinson, Theory chief Andrew Rosen and actress Kerry Washington. While guests dined on salmon or steak, Obama only drank coffee.

Obama also gave a brief speech, saying he’s not worried about his low poll numbers and he plans to tour the nation to drive the message home to voters about his administration’s achievements so far. “I’ve got my message across before and I’ll do it again. This I know how to do,” he said.

Unfortunately for the comrade, his message is not resonating with the public at large…
