At his latest in a series of pointless press conferences decrying talk over action, President Obama this morning trotted out his worn old class-warfare line about the need for millionaires, billionaires, and corporate jet owners to share in the “sacrifice.”
Perhaps someone can slip it into the Teleprompter of the United States one of these days.
Obama fundraising breakdowns are out today.
iWatch reports on the latest activities of Obama’s elite campaign finance bundlers. You can bet the bagman-in-chief isn’t telling them to eat their peas. Wagyu beef and caviar, maybe.
The Obama campaign, in a joint effort with the Democratic National Committee, earlier this year asked about 450 leading fundraisers to bring in $350,000 each by the end of this year. iWatch News has learned that the bundlers were also told they were expected to pull in the same amount next year— an extraordinary $700,000 per bundler over the course of the president’s re-election effort.
And the bundlers have responded. Two fundraisers confirmed to iWatch News that when the Obama campaign releases its list of bundlers on Friday, a number of individuals will be listed as having already raised more than $500,000.
