The 0.1%

Races for the Senate, U.S. House, etc. and other issues of national importance.

The 0.1%

Here is what it looks like when you party with the Obamas and the 0.1%

Image

That is $105,000.00 worth of overpriced champagne artfully arrayed, at additional cost by a famous designer, at Obama's fundraiser the other night.

The piggishness was so bad that even Obama was embarrassed and there is supposed to be an embargo on photos.

Luckily the British press is on the job even if ours is not.

And the guy in the center? A gangster rapper who tries to glamorize thuggery.

Our president in action.

Oh my GOD you're an idiot. The Champagne tower is a permanent fixture at Jay-Z's club, 40/40, where the fundraiser was held.

So that's the same sight you'd see if you bellied up to the 40/40 bar to watch the game with your $6 Bud Light and your $5 chips & salsa. That's so 0.1%!

Care to retract that "piggishness was so bad" crack?

What? Jay-Z and Beyonce hosted a fundraiser for Obama and there was bling around? And RAPPERS???

Note that John Henry didn't bother linking his story. And even after being duped, he'll keep going back for more.

In case anyone's wondering about John Henry's gangster rapper who glamorizes thuggery, here's a video...

Empire State of Mind

Note how black the dude is. I mean, he's like super black.

John Henry
If you're implying that Romney was in attendance, I really doubt that.

(Though he does seem rather flexible, these days, when it comes to potential revenue streams.)

Not to mention that this was covered by the U.S. press and "at the hip-hop mogul’s fundraiser for President Obama Tuesday night, the wall of glitz was discreetly covered up under a dark dropcloth"

Thanks for the best laugh of the night, mr. Henry!

Mea maxima culpa.

Thanks to all for drawing the scales from my eyes.

I now see how awesome Obama is. All that ostentatious piggishness?

How wrong I was to have thought that this did not project a good image of the Prez. The man needs his money and relaxation.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Worse is better.

# of untruths in this sentence: 3

# of untruths in this sentence: 1, possibly 2 (got a source for Obama's embarrassment?)

Luckily the British press is on the job even if ours is not.

# of untruths in this sentence: 1

To recap-
# of sentences in your post: 5
# of sentences containing untruths: 3 (+1 uninformed opinion regarding a musical artist)
# of untruths total: 5 (possibly 6)

And you have the gall to suggest that we're just dupes for correcting you? You really are determined to become the biggest douche on this site, aren't you?

I'd still like to see John Henry's original source. He failed to link anything and I can't help but wonder which of his reliable news sites he got the story from. Sean Hannity? Ann Coulter? The Drudge Report?

You clearly were reacting to a "news" story, John Henry. Where did it come from? As Bland points out, the entire post is simply one lie after another. Will you continue to use that news source when posting on the Daily Page?

Go figure, he has to raise money. I guess you're all for campaign finance reform.

I guess that's all people have to attack Obama. Hanging out with scary black people.

Yap, yap, yap, yap.
