    The Democratic National Committee has informed a Connecticut town it will not be reimbursed for the thousands of dollars the city spent on costs for President Obama's fundraising visit earlier this month.

    Gordon Joseloff, the first selectman of Westport, says he was informed this week the town's request to have the DNC and Obama for America cover the $14,812 the city paid in police and fire overtime was denied.

    The president traveled to the area on Aug. 6 to attend a fundraiser in Stamford and a $35,800 per person dinner at the Westport home of movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

    Local officials even shut down two popular public beaches to accommodate the president. They closed the 238-acre Sherwood Island State Park so the president's helicopter could land, and also closed the roughly two-acre Burying Hill Beach -- adjacent to Weinstein's mansion

    Well Joplin didn't get any extra dough when Oblama came to town, the town where the convention is will just have fewer people working it, the can call if Sarah Palin crashes the party. The town stands to make how much off the convention?

    And you can bet a few more potential Obama voters have turned their backs on him...

    Given the track he is on right now he will be the most hated man in the US come November...

    If the trip is official presidential business that's one thing, but when it purely a political event, regardless of which party, the locals shouldn't have to foot the bill IMO.
