Ouch!… Former Obama Donor Holds High Dollar Fundraiser for Romney with Former Obama Donors

Protesters meet Romney donors in the Hamptons.

Former Obama donor Ronald Perelman, the chairman of Revlon, is not supporting Barack Obama this year… And he just held a high dollar fundraiser for Mitt Romney in the Hamptons.
Mondoweiss reported:
The New York Times reports that Romney had a big fundraiser at Revlon chairman Ron Perelman’s house in the Hamptons over the weekend.

But just four years ago, Perelman maxed out for Barack Obama. according to federal records.

Why the change? Well, Perelman has also given a lot to Orthodox Jewish causes, and the Times says one of the people coming to Perelman’s house for the fundraiser had Israel on her mind:

A woman in a blue chiffon dress poked her head out of a black Range Rover here on Sunday afternoon and yelled to an aide to Mitt Romney, “Is there a V.I.P. entrance. We are V.I.P.”…

Laura R. Schwartz of New Jersey, the woman inside the Range Rover, complained that Mr. Obama had not visited Israel as president, a slight to the country, in her eyes. “I don’t think he is good for Israel,” she said. Mr. Romney, she said, “is a fresh face.”

Perelman was not the only former Obama supporter at the fundraiser. An estimated twenty-five percent of the attendees were former Obama supporters.
The LA Times reported:

Sharon Zambrelli voted for Obama in 2008 but has been disappointed with his handling of the economy and leadership style. “I was very disenchanted with the political process and he gave me hope,” she said, but ultimately: “He’s just a politician,” she said, an “emperor with no clothes.”

The Zambrellis scoffed at attempts by the Democrats — who mocked Romney in an ad Sunday as “great for oil billionaires, bad for the middle class” — to wage class warfare. “Would you like to hear about the fundraisers I went to for him?” Sharon Zambrelli said of Obama. “Do you have an hour? … All the ones in the city — it was all of Wall Street.”

“It’s not helping the economy to pit the people who are the engine of the economy against the people who rely on that engine,” Michael Zambrelli said as the couple waited in their SUV for clearance into the Creeks shortly after the candidate’s motorcade flew by and entered the pine-tree lined estate. “He’s basically been biting the hand that fed him in ’08. … I would bet 25% of the people here were supporters of Obama in ’08. And they’re here now.

    Oh do tell sweetheart:

    “I just think if you’re lower income — one, you’re not as educated, two, they don’t understand how it works, they don’t understand how the systems work, they don’t understand the impact.”

    Funny how we ignorant commoners smelled a ratty commie odor wafting off your ex guy from day 1, so again, who were the dopes?

    Brad Pitt’s mom bullied into silence

    [Jane Pitt, mother of actor Brad Pitt, has been scared into silence by the
    hate-filled, vulgar and even violent reaction to her public assertion that
    Barack Obama is “a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and
    same-sex marriage.”

    Pitt has even been the subject of death threats following her letter to
    the editor of Missouri’s Springfield News-Leader in which she asserted
    failure to vote for Republican presumptive presidential candidate Mitt
    Romney constituted a vote for Obama.]

    hmmm, maybe they’ll “evolve” her
    between now and 11/06/12.. /s/

    Rich rubes are rubes nonetheless.

    Rubes in that they didn’t see who Obama was in 2008, not for supporting Romney.

  • Mad Hatter

    Be careful about seeing these former Obama supporters moving to Romney. Remember kids, if Mitt wins, they’ll want something in return for their “investment”, and it won’t be for the betterment of the Country.

    just so we’re clear. Romney is Agenda 21 all the way.
    ‘Mitt Romney Is CFR’s Door To De-Population.’
    He invented Soetorocare.
    even the evil george S. said there is NO difference between the 2.

    ‘The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
    in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
    So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
    TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
    decided …to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.’

    even if he is, at least he’s on the slow
    boat to China, not Obama’s speedrail..

    I have yet to hear of one McCain supporter who has become an Obama donor in 2012 . . . and I don’t expect to.

    Better late than never?

    They seem to take it seriously, just not that seriously. I think it’s because they still watch television news. The Liberal Sedative Media.

    This is just more proof that in the final act for Obama, he will be cast as toast.

    Overall popularity is bad (don’t believe that poll at 47%. Bull, try 40% at best).
    Economy is going to slow even more moving toward election day. We will see the true “zero” on November 6.
    Obama focuses on the stairs in front of him, “desperate times call for desperate measures,” he mumbles, just before bumping his head on the door way exiting Air Force One. It was Bush’s fault. “Dang.”

    It’s obvious that money and or education does not equal common sense. I’ve been very much aware of this for decades, I’m sorry to say it’s holding very true.
