President Obama goes on fundraising blitz through Manhattan

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!

Occupy Protesters Mobilize for Obama’s Visit

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.

    I knew something was wrong a few months ago when Occupy Seattle completely ignored all the fancy Dem fundraisers going on, including Obama’s visit, but turned out to protest Romney. They’re also camped in the poor/working class part of town, when Seattle has several wealthy/financial areas. Rather then camp on the lawn of a major Dem business donor, they choose to harass community college students. Why? Because they are one of the few groups not hosting Dem fundraisers right now. Also revealing, twice they deliberately moved the protest several blocks away so as to not interfere with these banquets.

    At least one of the OWS protesters admitted that most of them will vote for Obama again, but they had to protest Obama in order to be seen
    as “credible.”

    So their protest of Obama was done as a photo-op for the media? Okay now I believe they’re Obama hacks.
