Obama lands in Miami to raise money for Dem Senate, House candidates

by George Bennett | October 26th, 2009

MIAMI — Air Force One just landed here as President Obama prepares to attend a fund-raiser in Miami Beach for Democratic Senate and House candidates.

Obama stepped off the plane about 5:30 p.m. with Sen. Bill Nelson and greeted a passel of Democratic elected officials on the tarmac at Miami International Airport: Chief Financial Officer and gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink; U.S. Rep. and Democratic Senate frontrunner Kendrick Meek of Miami; U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston; Miami Mayor Manny Diaz and state Sen. Dan Gelber of Miami Beach.

Obama is to attend a fund-raiser at the Fountainebleu Hotel, then go to a solar energy plant in DeSoto County on Tuesday.

    Obama really came to play another round of golf while Rome burns.

    hey alice, you’re really boring. are you just sitting there waiting for obama in florida posts so you can make a golf comment? grow up.

    you also seem stuck on the “while rome burns”. obama’s just trying to put out the fires that his lazy predecessor started while his administration was shifting our tax dollars to his supporters’ bank accounts. and they’ve been burning for a while and it will take time for our country to rescue itself from all that nonsense.

    you’re not helping.

    EVERYONE KNOWS THAT GRAYSON IS A WINGNUT. HE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A SOCIALIST LIBERAL FRIEND OF OBAMA, PELOSI NELSON AND KOSMAS. HE IS A BIG MOUTH, EMPTY HEAD TRIAL LAWYER FROM NEW YORK AND WILL NEVER LEARN TO KEEP HIS BIG MOUTH SHUT AND LEARN SOMETHING FOR A CHANGE. HE IS THE CONGRESSMAN FROM ACORN AND UNION THUGS AND THINKS THEY WILL GET HIM RE-ELECTED

    Why didn’t Gov. Crist meet Obama at the airport to carry his golf clubs this time? Obama and Crist make a great couple as they are both empty suit socialist liberals.

  5. Alice Says:

    Are you better of now than you were 10 months ago? 11% plus unemployment here in Florida WOW thank you Obama. Unemployment was about 6% 10 months ago. How is all that hope and change working for all you supporters out of work while Obama plays golf and has huge parties in the Whitehouse.

  6. Alice Says:

    Let’s have more Town Halls filled with union thugs and paid ACORN members. That’s the kind of hope and change we voted for comrads.
