President Obama coming to Newport Beach

President Barack Obama - 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner

Hat tip to our friends at OC Weekly, but welcome news that President Barack Obama is coming to Orange County and Newport Beach for a fundraiser.

The President comes to OC on February 16 according to OC Weekly; from the story: “Count Jeff and Nancy Stack among them. Having already given the legal limit of $10,000 to the Chosen One, they are hosting the Feb. 16 benefit for the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in their sprawling, ocean-view home. He’s managing director of the Sares-Regis Group development company in Irvine. She heads the nonprofit Cystinosis Research Foundation.”

Obama came to Newport Beach for a fundraising trip during the 2008 race. And he hosted a Town Hall on Healthcare in Costa Mesa at the PC Fairgrounds in March 2009.

Through the end of 2011, Obama hauled in $130 million in campaign contributions — more than all his Republican opponents combined.

    The “Communist in Chief” trolling for more campaign cash from his rich 1%’er friends. Another 4 years of this guy and our country will have completely bottomed-out. Never seen a guy drive a country into the ground so quickly. Please no more of this guy, please. Let’s save what we have left of this country.

    Have you been hiding under a rock?? David Swanson, A Democrat, who worked with Congressman Dennis Kucinich for the Purpose of Impeachment of George W. Bush, analyzed the 35 Counts of Impeachment filed with the House Judiciary Committee in 2008 for George W. Bush. Swanson found that Obama HIGHLY QUALIFIED FOR IMPEACHMENT, on 27 of 35 Counts that Democratic Representative Kucinich filed on George W. Bush.
    Steve, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander…. I expect you will join the growing chorus of voices calling for the Impeachment of Obama now, before he starts World War III or uses nuclear weapons, like another “Good Democrat,” Harry S Truman.
    Steve, speak to us. and please express your thoughts more fully, you were awful vague in your two postings and said virtually zero. Surely, you are much more lucid. Thanks

      It will never happen. Even if the House mustered enough votes, it’s the Senate that prosecutes impeachment charges.

      Obama starting WWIII or using nuclear weapons. Pull that aluminum foil down even tighter….

    Dan, Is That All You Can Say??

    Folks, Notice the Big Defender of Obama and Supporter of Obama, Dan Chmiewlski, can only weakly say, “Even if the House mustered enough votes, it is the Senate that prosecutes impeachment charges.”

    Do you not deny Obama is guilty of 27 of the 35 Counts of Impeachable Offenses as filed by Kucinich in the case of George W. Bush??

    Just waving your hand and passing over the substance of those 35 charges does not answer the substance… Of course, it doesn’t automatically convict him either. BUT YOU WON”T EVEN DEFEND HIM ON THE CHARGES!! That’s what I call an intellectual coward!! Dan, you take the cake, and you’ll probably try to eat it too!!! Defend your man on the substance of the charges or admit its true. HE IS GUILTY OF IMPEACHABLE CRIMES IN THE EYES OF THE CONSTITUTION AND THE EYES OF POSTERITY, not in the eyes of “Democrats,” or “Republicans,” as a partisan political issue.
    Your cynicism will do you in Dan. Stand up for your man on substance!! Let’s Hear It! A DEMOCRAT, DAVID SWANSON CHARGES YOUR MAN WITH 27 of the 35 Offenses of Bush!! And your answer to the substance of that is…………??????? Silence!!
    Folks, draw your own conclusions!
