Warren Buffet to Host $36K per Head Chicago Fundraiser for Obama

Billionaire Warren Buffett will help raise money for President Barack Obama's re-election effort at a $35,800-a-ticket fundraiser next month in Chicago, an Obama campaign official said, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Buffett will attend the Oct. 27 event at a private home on Chicago's North Shore. Obama is not expected to attend. It will be a Buffett show.

Buffett also plans to hold a Sept. 30 fundraiser in New York City for the benefit of the President.

The NYC fundraiser will also feature former Obama economic adviser Austan Goolsbee.
Clearly, Buffett has gone gaga over Obama. The mystery remains why. Buffett is a powerful enough oligarch to influence any administration, Democrat or Republican. He cut his Goldman Sachs deal under the Bush Administration. Is he completely selling out simply because a confused President with egalitarian leanings is paying a little attention to him? It would be less embarrassing if Buffett found himself a semi-decent 20-year old, who wanted a boob job.


  1. Is Buffet a stupid government-worshiping child or is he a terrorist?

  2. If only 13,966,480 people show up, Obama can pay for his jobs bill!

  3. The Billionaire Buffoon Buffet, a money grubbing piece of work . That is what he is, senility has set in and it is time to find a home for this aged creep. Preferably in a FEMA home. Sickening idiot, he makes me puke.

  4. I don't think Buffet is senile. He's just badly wrong on economics (no, Keynesianism does not work) and completely naive about politics (hint: they are all liars and thieves.)

    I think he means well, but he's is so horrible mistaken about the need for any government intervention (from either democrats or republicans.) I hope he stops this political stuff, as the policies he supports are harmful to everyone.

  5. Government-worshiping child. The freak chugs sugar and caffeine all day just like a little boy. This rots the mind and body over time and turns a man into a weak-minded child.

  6. Is Buffet ever going to pay his outstanding taxes that one of his companies owes to the IRS? Or is is insider trading ever going to be investigated by the government?
