    Default $50K a plate? Pocket Change for O's $15 million night.

    Much was made recently about a $50K a plate dinner GOP fund raiser.

    The Hollywood crowd would not bother with such paltry business.

    This is why all political donations should be capped at $10K per year per American citizen (A living person with a human body). Term limits need to be enacted.
    Until these two changes happen our nation will continue to be run into the ground by self-serving career politicans dancing to the highest bidders.......

    I also think that term limits are needed. Career politicians should be eliminated, with a two term limit. Also, they should have a limited retirement plan and the same healthcare as our military.

    Default Safe bet.....

    It's a safe bet that Clooney deducted plenty from his tax liability to put on such a show....It's also a safe bet Wesley Snipes didn't contribute a single dime.....

    You had alot to say when Romney held a fundraiser and charged $XXXX. per plate but when Ozero has a similar fundraiser you go into a toothless beninge diatribe about ALL political donations and some blather about term limits....There is no doubt who's nutts you are swinging from.

    Yeah isn't it funny how many $30,000 a plate fund raisers O has had in the last few months. And all of them headlines in the news. Yet the great freethinker say's not word one about it and how screwed up the election/campaign funding is. But boy oh boy the very first one for Mitt and he is all over it.
    If you voted for Obama to prove you were not racist, then you better find someone else to vote for to prove your not stupid.

    Gotta say, if I had 50 to drop on a whim, I'd call Charlie Sheen before any candidate. ....

    I guess you blind righties missed the hypocrisy of Romney taking big political donations arranged and hosted by a foreign owned drug corporation (Teva) that manufactures and sells morning after abortion pills world wide to the tune of millions of dollars....Don't you kind of think that Romney who says he is pro-life is seeking support and taking money earned by killing life at conception? Don't you pro-life guys have a slight problem with this???

    Obama is being supported by pro-gay rights liberal movie stars. So what else is new? I do not see any hypocrisy in his fund raiser.

    You conservatives are being conned big time yet do not see it...Sadly you righties have proven that the Republican party seems to have gone with the Barnum & Bailey slogan...

    You guys just haven't figured out yet that you are suckers because you do not think about anything . Just hate Obama is all they want you to do.......

    To be fair, Z, it doesn't take a whole bunch of thinking to identify that O is a fucking disaster.
    The reasons to "hate" him are many and multiform.
