President Obama came to our town last night to raise more dough for his re-election campaign. Good thing Obama doesn't have a day job, since we know what kind of a work ethic the guy has--you wouldn't expect him to be working night and day, would you? Tom Carnahan, brother of failed Senate candidate Robin and Representative Russ Carnahan, spawn of a well-connected Missouri Democrat family (children of Mel Carnahan, former Missouri governor and the Widow Carnahan, who replaced her husband--oh, those Carnahans), hosted a $25,000-per-person fundraiser on Tuesday night at his home in St. Louis city. Tom Carnahan was awarded $107 million of stimulus dollars for his Missouri wind farm, Lost Creek Farm, so the fundraiser was a "Thank you, Obama" event--or "pay for play," if you will.
The St. Louis Tea Party was there to greet the President.
Rush Limbaugh, a Missouri native, was all over the Carnahan fundraiser, calling it a "money laundering operation. Tom Carnahan gets money from Obama for a fake solar company and then hosts a fundraiser for Obama. . . . So what Obama has done, and numerous times, is generate campaign contributions that are taxpayer dollars." You can read the entire transcript of Lindbaugh's remarks here.
Update. In a related story, discounted access to First Lady Michael Obama is being sold for an upcoming D.C. fundraiser for Barry Soetoro's re-election campaign. Originally asking $1,000, access to the self-absorbed FLOTUS has been marked down to $250. "Make a contribution of any amount today so your commitment can be represented in the financials that pundits will be dissecting in the weeks ahead." Snort.
