If all Obama managed to raise was $1 million...it would have been cheaper for the taxpayers to donate the money to his party...I'm sure Obama'a visti to LA cost us more than a million, when you consider all the security and all the traffic problems, not to mention what it did to folks who needed to travel on the west side of town when some of the major streets were closed (even to pedestrians!!)... I hope he never comes to my side of town!!

He raised $1,000,000.00 for the Dems. How much did it cost LA in traffic control and grid lock?
I voted for this guy, but he is really turning out to be quite the Douchebag! The only thing he's done well is get Wealthy Democrats to part with their money!

Doesn't the same kind of grid lock occur every time a President comes to town?

When are people finally going to realize that Obama is a Mulsim/Socialist? Look at the evidence of Obama's background...him listening to Jeremiah Wright spouting hate speech in his "church" for over twenty years. Ever since he took office he has repeatedly ignored the will of the American people. He is nothing more than a soundbite for the Muslim nation. Case in point. His comments at a Ramadan dinner on Friday about the Ground Zero Mosque says everything about him. What President in their right mind has a state dinner for Ramadan that is broadcast back to the Muslims nations? Hey Obama, quit trying to sooth the hurt feelings of the world's Muslims, and start worrying about doing your job. You, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi have systematically destroyed this country. Be a real American, which I doubt you and your pain in the ass wife are, and start making America first!

What kind of dinner do you get for $30,000? Does it include an appetizer and soup? Dessert? Brandy and cigar? A floor show or dinner show?

obama put a real estate agent on the government payroll just in case the muslims need more property to build a mosque.

the founding principles of the country demand a real estate agent for all who want to build a mosque.

He saw, he came, he walked off with money that would be better spent on invigorating (stimulus is such an EMPTY word now) the economy. Instead, he's taking money from millionaires to give to other millionaires.

That's an 'American' Socialist for you.

Message to Obama - please stay away. We've already got one liar (in charge of City Hall). We don't need you.

You cost Los Angeleos more money in lost time, grid-lock, security force overtime and re-routed or delayed flights than you took with you. Next time - send an e-mail asking for cash. Or publish another book and donate the proceeds to your favorite charity (Democratic Party).

Stay away from us. We've got enough problems without you adding to them.

I was one of the many caught in that westside traffic. 30 min. just to move a few blocks. Use the helicopter like Reagan did. This goes for any President.

Nothing quite so good. All you get is a stand up presidential impersonator.
