Obama visits Orlando Tuesday to raise money, promote jobs bill

by George Bennett | October 10th, 2011


President Obama — who currently has a higher disapproval rating in Florida than popularity-challenged Gov. Rick Scott — will stop in Orlando Tuesday for a pair of fundraising events.

He’ll also reportedly meet with unemployed construction workers to discuss the American Jobs Act.

Obama will attend one money event at a downtown Orlando hotel, then head to a second fundraiser at the home of attorney John Morgan — whose firm recently hired former Gov. Charlie Crist.

The host committee for Morgan’s event includes NBA veteran Grant Hill, basketball Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing, Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers and former baseball great Ken Griffey Jr.

    Is he going to talk about more “Hope and Change”? We could surely use more of that right now. Is Michelle attending? That will create more overtime for the local security detail so they can all pad their pensions and stick some more to the taxpayers. Maybe he should concentrate running the country-not hide his campaigning behind the flawed American Jobs Act.

  2. Marcus Says:

    Greedy Obama.
