[Editor's Commentary: At $40,000 per plate, how many of these "limosine liberals" are simply interested in good government and how many do you think are mostly, if not entirely, interested in extending Obama's control of the private lives of Americans, raising taxes on everyone but themselves, saving Mother Earth from the ravages of evil capitalists and running up our national debts to even more stratospheric levels?
They have raised hypocrisy to an art form. The Democratic Party likes to advertize itself as the Party of the "working man," the Party of the "little guy."
Obviously, at $40,00 per plate there won't be a "little guy" at the table, but there will be a small army of "little people" pouring coffee and setting plates of fine cuisine in front of these stiffs.
What a racket!]

- President Barack Obama attended a fundraiser Friday night at the home of Debra Lee, chairwoman and CEO of BET.
About 40 people attended the $40,000-a-plate dinner in D.C.’s Woodley Park neighborhood. During his remarks, the president gave a nod to some of the acrimony toward Washington among the American people.
“[T]hings are tough, and they’ve grown cynical, and they see the mess that goes on in Washington and there’s a temptation at a certain point to just say, ‘Oh, a plague on both their houses; nothing is getting done,’” he said. “And so we’re going to have to work harder this time than we did in ’08.”
A Pew survey released this week found that only one in three Americans had a favorable view of the federal government, the smallest proportion in 15 years.
Obama also admitted that some of his cool factor may have worn off during his first term.
