Obama

As the NY Post says:

Jay-Z and wife Beyoncé will host a fund-raiser for President Obama at the "Watch the Throne" rapper's 40/40 Club on Sept. 18. We hear the event will be intimate and capped at 100 guests who will shell out $40,000 per ticket to dine with the commander-in-chief and hip-hop royal. Earlier the same day, Obama is scheduled to attend a reception where families can pose for a photo with him for a $12,500 contribution. A rep for Jay-Z's West 25th Street club had no comment. We're told the campaign stop will be Obama's last in New York before the election. But does this mean the president will miss Jay's concerts at Brooklyn's new Barclays Center at the end of September?
I wonder if Jay's old friend Russell Simmons will buy a ticket, and if so if they'll use the occasion to talk Occupy Wall Street. Jay's 8-show run at the Barclays Center, which Occupy plan to have a presence at, starts 10 days later.

In related news, Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music album 'Cruel Summer' is out next week.

For $40,000 they better have a ROBUST hummus platter up in there.

I'm not a businessman. I'm a business, man.

You see what I did with that comma there? You see that?

And we're supposed to believe this president is for the people?

What a joke.

Bring on the guy who has actually worked in the private sector!

MITT! MITT! MITT!

Is Obama even relevant anymore?

Vote these corrupt politicians out of office. Vote for a third party. A third party candidate will not win, but if the big two lose enough votes, maybe they will start providing candidates that are actually for the people.

forty Gs is a lotta lettuce, son. how should potential voters feel about dear leader prez rockin' the mic with a *former* crack dealer over plates of quail asses stuffed with foie gras and other 1% delicacies? hypocrisy dissipates like crack smoke when ya'll fightin' against the "man," ie, frugal guys name herb with accounting jobs who cling to their guns and religion and such.

maybe biden will use that largesse for bail money--to "unshackle" people, etc. or TELL people that's where the money will be directed and instead get a new set of plugs, cap those chicklet teeth, and a four-year supply of tannerizer spray on that big stupid grinning face of his. retail politics indeed!

I'd have more respect for Barama Bama if he were having a fundraiser hosted by Emimem. That, of course, would show he's sincerity to cross racial lines and promote, like, racial harmony and shit.

They should hold this fundraiser at the U.S. embassy in Cairo.

My penis is large enough to hold the fundraiser on, especially if Beyonce makes an appearance.

Fred, I hope you can get a photo pass!

Obama's definitely gonna tap that azz. He's the president of tapping that shit. "Hit it, and quit it."

Just the bourgeois up to their old tricks again.

the headline could just as well be "a chance to have dinner with Jay-Z, Beyonce & President Obama (for free)." there's a contest on their site where you can enter to go to the dinner, for free. this post is stupid.

"Hip Hop Royal" Is there even such a thing, and if there is, should it even be allowed?

It's a hard knock life, indeed, Mr. Hov.

6:17- I will just assume that your post was an obvious attempt at trolling as nobody who can actually type could be that stupid.
