Obama raising money in Miami later this month

by Dara Kam | February 7th, 2012

Supporters of President Barack Obama can rub elbows with the candidate at two fundraisers in Coral Gables later this month.

Obama will be at a luncheon at 1 p.m. at the swank Biltmore Hotel on Feb. 23, and Democratic money-man Chris Korge will host a dinner reception at 4 p.m. at his home later that night. Korge, a prominent lawyer and real estate developer, was an early Obama supporter four years ago.

“There are a limited number of tickets available. Please do not wait to purchase these tickets as they are expected to sell out quickly,” the e-mailed invitation reads.

Add these up one by one and you get a phenomenal score that points to the fact that Barrack Hussein Obama is determined to turn America into a Marxist-Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this, do an Internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone.
    You and I will write that paragraph.

    Will it read as above or will it be a happier ending for most of America?

    We all need to pull together or watch the demise of a free society.

    Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia, North Korea or Iran. Our biggest enemy is a destructive contingent of politicians in Washington, DC.

    The government will not help, so we need to do it ourselves.

    WHEN – November 2012 comes, it will matter for whom you vote!

    Sharing Internet knowledge is a geometric progression and has tremendous educational power if shared, and shared, and shared.

    Please join us to save our country.

  5. RENEGADE Says:

    FIRST PRESIDENT TO HAVE TO PUT UP WITH CHILDISH SCUMBAGS CONSTANTLY POSTING LONG LISTS OF LIES ABOUT HIM BECAUSE SAID SCUMBAG IS A FLAMING RACIST WHO CAN”T STAND THE FACT THAT AN INTELLIGENT AND CAPABLE AFRICAN AMERICAN IS POTUS AND THE FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT IS FAR MORE INTELLIGENT AND SUCESSFULL THAN HE COULD EVER DREAM OF BEING.
    PRETTY SAD THAT IN THIS DAY AND AGE WE STILL HAVE LOSERS EXHIBITING THIS LEVEL OF IGNORANCE IN OUR SOCIETY.

HIS WHOLE LIFE CONSISTS OF HATING A MAN HE HAS NEVER MET. ALL HIS TIME AND ENERY GOING TO THAT ONE THING. KIND OF SICK REALLY.

  6. RENEGADE Says:

    Jefferson quotes:

    “It has been said the greatest volume of sheer brain power in one place occurred when Jefferson dined alone.” John Kennedy

    “When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.

    The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

    It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.

    I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.

    My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

    No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.

    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

    The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

    To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

  9. Same Ole, Same Ole Says:

    It is always pleasurable to be ignorantly chastised by some on this forum – those who cannot match the organized logic and reasons I and others like me enjoy setting forth to justify assertions and conclusions.

    It always satisfies and makes me smile to read ad hominem replies.

    Keep ‘em coming!

    :-)

  10. Obama-God omissions Says:

    Obama omitted – ‘God’ from Thanksgiving speech

    Obama-failure to appear at any National Prayer Day event

    Obama-failure to include “Creator” from his quote of the Declaration of Independence

    Obama-interference with Catholic church’s beliefs

    Obama-said the USA’s motto is “e pluribus unum” instead of “in God We Trust”

    Obama-his Reverend Wright invoke “God Damn America” in a pulpit rant

    Obama if he’s an atheist, agnostic, Black Liberatist- THEN DECLARE IT!

    Don’t lie to the people of the USA.

    There is much we don’t know about President Obama. He’s very secretive about his past.

    IF re-elected, he will feel free to impose his will, his beliefs on America. We can’t let that happen.

    NObama in NOvember!

  11. How quick they forget Says:

    LOL! Did Obama supporters forget the abuse President Bush took from the opposition.

    It’s ok for democrats to attack, just not anyone else.

    It’s ok for democrats to be wealthy, but not anyone else.

    That’s the reason all democrats need to be voted out of office.

    A totaliarian state is on the way!

  12. RENEGADE Says:

    Pitiful to see a supposed grown man so eaten up with his racial hate that he spends all his time posting lies about our President just because of the color of his skin.
    Same ole….You realize that President Obama is the most important person in your life. And you have given him that place of importance because of your hate. You really should get some profesional help. Its not healthy to go thru life like that.

  13. RENEGADE Says:

    I bet Obama would laugh at you if he knew!
