    Donors losing enthusiasm for Papa Obama- why would that be :eusa_whistle:

    The New York Times report that a Denver fundraiser yesterday afternoon ended up less than 80% of capacity:


    According to today’s White House pooler, the New York Times‘s Peter Baker, “The crowd was obviously supportive and glad to see him, though the room at times felt a little flat and Potus seemed a little tired after a long day that’s not even close to being over.” (The president has two more fundraisers tonight in Los Angeles.)

    Moreover, the campaign announced that the president “[would] headline a reception for 700 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center. General admission tickets started at $500 apiece, though a selected number of Gen44 and Grassroots tickets were available for $250.”

    The campaign now says, according to the pooler, that only 550 people showed up.


    Even Boston?

    According to the Boston Globe

    The number of Massachusetts supporters contributing the maximum to President Obama’s campaign fund has plunged nearly 50 percent compared with his 2008 fledgling run, reflecting a sharp drop in enthusiasm after the president’s first term.

    The decline has forced Democrats to make up the difference with bigger contributions from fewer donors. Cash from an elite corps of Massachusetts backers has gushed into the Democratic National Committee, which has much higher contribution limits than the Obama campaign.

    uhm, maybe its because O'Bozo has no accomplishments to boast about,,well except his accomplishment of eating 874 dogs when he lived in the huts of africa and never threw up any hair balls.

    No accomplishments and Obama wants to take more of their income. I would rather billionaire income go direct into the economy and create jobs and more tax revenue.

    you got to love it when Sean Hannity asks a caller to name 3 of Obama's accomplishments and they are speechless.
