I posted earlier today about Obama’s visit to the Bay Area, one that is expected to net him and the Democratic party lots and lots of money. One reader, who asked to remain anonymous, noticed something interesting about Obama’s schedule:
Obama has scheduled:
– 4:30 appearance in Palo Alto for $35,800/person
– 5:30 dinner in Atherton for $35,800/person
– 6:00 rally/reception in Redwood City for $2500-$7500/person
Doesn’t this schedule look odd? I know Silicon Valley is a small area, but there are limits to how fast one can drive and unless he really is God and can be in multiple places at once, his presence at these events must be only about 5 minutes each. This is especially true for the 5:30 event.
Frankly, if I was paying $35,800 to have dinner or be at an “appearance” of the President, I would expect more than a fleeting glimpse as he reenters his car. But, of course, I am a conservative and expect value for my money.
I wish I’d said that.
