Skip to comments.Obama Caught Begging For Cash…Illegally?
Posted on 07/03/2012 7:04:01 PM PDT by opentalk
It was reported on Sunday that Obama was so broken up after touring the devastation caused by the Colorado wildfires that he promptly hopped aboard Air Force One and made an 18-minute conference call to his big donors asking for cash that was described as pleading and a tad worried.
Daily Beast columnist Lloyd Grove, who obtained the audio tape from an Obama donor, went on to refer to the call as rambling[s] from a dog-tired idealist.
Almost a year ago today, Obama was in hot water for videotaping a campaign commercial in the White House Map Room begging for cash; U.S. Code clearly states that fundraising in a government building is strictly forbidden. The question is, does this also apply to Air Force One? The law does not include the term airplane, but by extension, one would think it applied to anything serving a building-like function.
Furthermore, presumably while on Air Force One paid for by taxpayers at a cost of $180,000 per hour, Obama should be engaged in activity relating to his job, not on his hands and knees begging for cash from his cronies.
Obama likely thinks of it as insurance money besides campaign funds. In case things ever go South against Hussein, he could run to Kenya or Indonesia or wherever, and still live like a king. Those $$$ millions are probably set up to transfer out to foreign accounts on quick notice.
Exactly....every major agency head has a protocol officer/department made up of those that know how to act.
This POS has a protocol department designed solely to piss off America and all of our allies...there can absolutely be no other answer. Nobody screws up this bad on purpose. All designed for obfuscation.
Jethro Bodine could not be this clueless.

Aha! You understand my tagline
The Food Stamp President is about as classless as one can get. I’m sure he was just adding to his campaign fund raising methods:
1. Register him on your wedding registry for a donation.
2. Sell a kidney and donate the proceeds to his campaign.
3. Register him on your abortion registry for a donation.
4. Send some of your fire insurance money to his campaign.
5. Have your kids skip meals and send the money saved to his campaign.
Here you go Ellie May:
He got a lot of his money from foreigners last campaign. They had big internet stations set up in Arab nations working the net for propaganda and funneling money to him.
Every country that wants the US brought down from global leadership is going to help Obama.
The original story I read made great pains to state the phone was a campaign paid for line. Can’t find the byline but as soon as the story intimated he was politicking on AF1, I read it with greater interest.
Hahahaha...do I have to pay royalties???
Someone had to plan this and other "oops" moments during this regime's romp to be distasteful and insulting.
Actually, Cheech and Chong would be a huge improvement over the current imbeciles we have:
Maybe Justice Roberts can rule on this.
One question about the donor’s take of Hussein’s begfest: Was he asking for money for helping the fire victims?
OR, was he begging for money for his campaign because he knew Colorado was not pleased with his enviro-pandering which was a major cause of the magnitude of fire damage?
My money is on the second.
My prediction is that zer0bama will go to jail for this right after he admits the birth certificate was a forgery.
Add this to his impeach and remove offense list.
Oh no, no royalties. I should reward you. I did not want a tagline that sounded racist because it is not about race It is about lack of ability and well, all the other things that do not have to do with color. But the fact is, he is not a blonde. Neither is Myth Romney so if M.R. manages not to lose the election, I get to keep my tagline.
I live in Colo and I’m one of the people displeased with Barry’s photo op. He couldn’t wait to get in the air and make his phone call after screwing up our freeways for a couple of hours and asking the firefighters ( who looked annoyed) stupid questions. Our local news didn’t even report on his visit! Ha!
