If you want to pick on Obama, there are in fact truthful points you can make; he's not perfect. But attacking his fundraiser? It's like an autocorrect fail - makes no sense and funny as hell.
The Obama Runway to Win fundraiser has a line of celebrity-designed items whose sales will benefit the president's re-election campaign. Simple. It's like a bake sale for people who prefer fashion over brownies. Scarlett Johansson will host and Obama For America campaign manager Jim Messina will be a special guest.
The RNC response video to the event? I've seen better work on Cable Access. I'm not posting it or it's link here so if you need to see it, find it yourself. I will, however, give you Diaper Time from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Makes more sense and more entertaining.
So the GOP is whining about the Obama campaign hosting a ritzy NYC fashion show while 12 million Americans remain out of work. Really? That's all you got? Because Obama's got the creation of over 3 million jobs since he took office. Jobs, just so you remember, that were lost under Baby Bush because of people and companies like Mitt Romney & Bain Capital. He's also got this reminder that the GOP could care less about whether or not the unemployed ever go back to work. Way to spend your money, dipshits.
But my most favorite, favoritest part of the whole thing? The Hypocrisy of it all. The GOP keeps telling Americans to stop needing the government. To stop taking its Social Security despite the fact that as retired presidents both Bush Senior and Baby Bush receive a salary of $450,000 a year for life from the government - your tax dollars. To stop wanting Government health insurance despite the fact that every GOP member of the federal government receives federal health insurance - your tax dollars. To stop taking handouts. The way they do. From your tax dollars.
Well Obama's campaign is actually fundraising here. What's the GOP doing? Taking $100 million from the Koch brother and their cronies. Sounds like another handout to me.
