Obama Holds Hometown Fundraiser – To Half Empty Room

Author Jodi Kantor tweeted this from Chicago about an hour ago.

Barack Obama held a fund-raiser designed for younger supporters, each of whom will pay $51 to attend. That event takes place at the Bridgeport Arts Center, a collection of studio and gallery space south of Chicago’s downtown.

Thousands turned out for the Romney-Ryan event in Manassus, Virginia yesterday.

    To be frank: it’s not that nobody in Chicago wants to see Obama speak, it’s that not very many people in Chicago have that much money that wouldn’t be better spent on gas, food, taxes, fines, fees, bribes, tolls, and parking.

    The significance of $51, his birthday ego? Why not $51.25?

  • Beachluver

    Make no assumptions is correct. Remember there are about 1 hundred million people (citizens and non-citizens) on some form of welfare. Natural constituency for Obama. Romney’s voters need to turn out in big numbers.

    Should have made it $57 — $1 for each state.

    Promote it heavy that way and the place would have been filled to the rafters.

    I’m kinda hoping the Ryan choice will enable Romney to pick up a lot of the 3rd party voters. There are a lot of them this year with Gary Johnson and with Ron Paul who will probably still mount a campaign. You can bet dollars to donuts Johnson and Paul (if he runs) will be right there on the podium next to Mitt and Obama for one of the debates. The Obama media would never let a chance like that to wound Romney pass them by.

    they would have to pay me to go see that “commnunist” speak or actually see the teleprompter speak. On second thought even if they pay me I still wouldnt go, it would be comparable to jury duty and I dont do jury duty.

    Unless Mom (or Dad, if around) foots the bill, that $51.00 can buy a little more “blow”.
