Obama Charges $1,000 Per Handshake

Baby Doc Obama is giving skin to the masses...for a price....LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL !!!!

Obama Charges $1,000 Per Handshake
resident Obama’s fan base is willing to pay through the nose to get a glimpse of him. In fact, supporters in Dearborn, Michigan showed up today to shell out $1,000 just to shake the hand of The One.

“A thousand dollars is a lot of money,” Lonnie Peek, one of the fortunate few to touch Obama personally, told CBS. “But other folks are kickin’ in for their candidates, so what you do is you bite the bullet. You wanna have your conscience good, to feel that this is what I did. You know, you go without a couple of meals. We can miss a couple meals.”

Lonnie Peek, by the way, gave Obama $2,000 during the 2008 election cycle. He’s apparently a former member of the Citywide Citizens Action Committee, “possibly the most broadly based Black Power organization in any city,” according to articles at the time of its founding; he is a self-described racial “militant.”


For the supporters among us...print out and place on the altar...

It's a fundraiser. Republicans engage in fundraisers too.

Sorry, but one of the lamest arguments against any candidate is "Look! He's fundraising!" They ALL fundraise, and there's nothing wrong with it.

Talking about lame:

Ooohh, the horror, the horror!

Guilt by association because a former member of a ... shudder... black power (how scary!)organization... GAVE HIM SOME MONEY! How eeeeeeeeeevil! :roll:

Its just been pointed out to me that Alice Cooper charges half of that for a VIP meet and greet with real conversation, autographs, photos and t-shirts.
[and that money goes to his Christian youth center]

Alice Cooper Solid Rock Foundation

Oh, come on... Its funny because of those OWS folks. Who do they vote for? Maybe Obama can go shake the hands of some of the OWS folks? :lol:
As it is, we seem to regard it as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has taken one side or the other. We regard it (in other words) as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has contrived to reach the object of his reasoning. We call a man a bigot or a slave of dogma because he is a thinker who has thought thoroughly and to a definite end.
