President Obama went on a buckraking blitz through the city Wednesday, tapping wealthy donors at three coffer-boosting fundraisers.
Obama told raucous supporters he needed another term to fulfill the promise of his 2008 campaign–and to put Americans back to work.
“It’s time for us to refocus and make sure that we understand that ‘change we can believe in’ was never going to be change overnight,” Obama said at the glitzy Gotham Bar and Grill in the East Village, where donors forked over $25,800 each to hobnob with the commander-in-chief.
ZOMG! President One Percent is coming to town! Turn on the Batsignal! Rally the troops! MIC CHECK!
More than 100 Occupy Wall Street protesters marched to a Midtown hotel on Wednesday night to protest a fund-raising event for President Obama
“More than 100?” That’s it? A couple weeks ago I was hearing about 40,000 people marching through Manhattan.
Those ones last night must be the OWSers that really aren’t Obama supporters.
