Obama back to California for Democratic campaigns

By
July 23, 2014 |

SAN FRANCISCO — President Barack Obama is flying into California on Tuesday for a pair of Democratic fundraisers in Silicon Valley and the Los Angeles area.

The president is scheduled to arrive Tuesday at San Francisco International Airport and spend the night in the Bay Area, where he and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi are slated to attend a fundraiser Wednesday at the home of real estate developer and major Democratic donor George Marcus.

Tickets for the lunch in Los Altos Hills start at $10,000 per person and go up to $32,400 for a couple, according to an invitation obtained last month by The Associated Press.

Later Wednesday, Air Force One will fly to Los Angeles, where Obama is scheduled to attend a Democratic National Committee fundraiser.

On Thursday, he plans to give a speech on the economy at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College.

Obama has made California, and especially Silicon Valley, a campaign hub as he seeks to raise money for Democrats in November’s congressional elections.

He also made fundraising stops in the Golden State in May and June.

    Back to Obama's full time job and get away from the distractions of the day-to-day of un-pleasantries of Malaysia airline downing, the unsecured border surge and the other nonsense, he d much rather be in Hollywood with the libs worshipping him as a deity.

    If he spent as much time working for the people maybe they would not need all that money to buy their seats.

    He hates his job other than the adulation from the pinhead partisan hacks and fundraising.

    When the going gets tough, the tough get going. But for Obama, when the going gets tough, it's back to the ol' fund-raising grind. Something, maybe the only thing he's actually good at.

    When your son is in serious legal trouble who do you call? The Ghastbusters? OBammy? Mrs. Pelosi? Mr. Gerrymander? CD Brooks? I know, it's the Solano County Public Defender office! They will come to the rescue! Trial starts tomorrow in Department 18. The following information is from the Solano county courts website. 7/23 8:30 18/206 KIRCHUBEL, CAELUM FCR300215 JURY TRIAL It is scheduled for Dept 18 but may be reassigned to another department at the last moment...Maybe Mikie will fill us all in on the pretrial motions which occurred today. Or perhaps not.
