Of course, this should come as no surprise whatsoever given what we know about the gap between rhetoric and reality in the Obama Administration:
President Barack Obama has met with a small number of donors at a Washington fundraiser to benefit his re-election bid.
Democratic Party officials say about 20 people attended the fundraiser at The Jefferson hotel in downtown Washington. Tickets cost $35,800 a person, with the money going to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising account by the Democratic Party and Obama’s re-election campaign.
The 1% are to be demonized in public. But the president and his political team continue to be more than glad to give them special access and privileges . . . if they just cough up oodles, and oodles of cash for the Obama re-election effort.
This is Hope and Change? Forgive me if I am underwhelmed.
