Obama raises a cool million plus in Newport Beach

Obama spoke to 275 guests, who had contributed as much as $28,500, after being introduced by Assembly Speaker Karen Bass.

    Is $1m for that event considered good, vg or excellent?

    btw – why nothing on the Obama’s slandered on the NYer “Cover” story?

    I am a loyal New Yorker reader and I am sure they were aiming for the opposite effect — I imagine they were trying to make fun of those bottom feeders who see the Obamas as depicted on the cover in question. The New Yorker’s track record of progressive positions and exposing Bush Administration abuses is unimpeachable and I would bet that most of their staff are Obama supporters. Alas, from the buzz around this it is looking like instead of the satirical intent, it is helping the cause it seeks to mock. People are taking the cover at face value — talk about an attempt at humor “misfiring”!

    Ginny,

    I like you.

    Don’t be deceived, the biased media is working overtime to derail Obama. Our financial support of their publications is helping them.

    Why?

    Republican vs Democrat … no.

    Conservative vs Liberal … no.

    I see that the $1m is MORE than McCain raised here recentally – that’s got to qualify as EXCELLENT!

    Unfortunately …

    OC’s “feelin’ the pain of Bush/ McCain” …

    I’m sure conservatives here are shaking their heads at the amount of money raised by Dems. Let them keep underestimating us.
