Obama Charges $1,000 Per Handshake

President Obama's fan base is willing to pay through the nose to get a glimpse of him. In fact, supporters in Dearborn, Michigan showed up today to shell out $1,000 just to shake the hand of The One.

"A thousand dollars is a lot of money," Lonnie Peek, one of the fortunate few to touch Obama personally, told CBS. "But other folks are kickin' in for their candidates, so what you do is you bite the bullet. You wanna have your conscience good, to feel that this is what I did. You know, you go without a couple of meals. We can miss a couple meals."

Lonnie Peek, by the way, gave Obama $2,000 during the 2008 election cycle. He's apparently a former member of the Citywide Citizens Action Committee, "possibly the most broadly based Black Power organization in any city," according to articles at the time of its founding; he is a self-described racial "militant."

...... You know, you go without a couple of meals. We can miss a couple meals."

WOW what does this guy eat if he can give up a couple meals to pay Obama a $1000 to touch him. :shock:

Let's see Unemployment in the US when Obama took office was just over 7% then it shot up to 10% after Obama and his financial advisors promised it wouldn't if the Stimulus bill was passed. Since then it has dropped to just over 8%. And even though Obama added $5 trillion dollars to the national debt in 3 years more than any other President in US History, it is predicted unemployment will remain high for years to come. Great investment for the future this guy made with his couple missing meals. :roll:

Many of these people voted on emotion verses what was smart for the future. They voted for Obama the first time as they saw it a chance to make history. He made history alright, WITH HIS SPENDING. Voting for him again after his record of leadership is now KNOWN BY ALL is just plain STUPID. :x
