Obama Goes For The Gold In The Bankrupt Golden State

President Barack Obama today flies into California where the state budget is $20 billion in arrears and unemployment is a rising 12.6%. But the president is not asking what he can do for them, but what Democratic fat cats can do for him.

Obama pulled off the same heist earlier in his term and collected $3 million. Today's event in Los Angeles is expected to far exceed that with a $2,500 public speech followed by the $17,600 per plate dinner speech later. Protesters are urged to cough up or shut up.

The Los Angeles Times offers this snarky report.
