Lunch With Bill: Minimum $25,000 per Couple Democratic Convention Fundraiser

Oh that Bill Clinton is certainly a busy man! Whether posing with porn stars–who most likely paid for the privilege of snuggling the former president, if the price list below is any indication—or inviting me and presumably tens of thousands of others to spend an evening with him and Obama in New York City, William Jefferson Clinton is a tireless fund raising machine for both his own foundation and for the Democratic Party.

Considering this luncheon falls on my birthday, I think a pair of tickets to this Beverly Hills fundraiser would be a really nice gift. Or just taking me as your date. You could bring someone else to the Democratic Convention, since we probably don’t know each other well enough to share a hotel room.

$1.00 would be too much to have lunch with this neo-liberal charlatan.

Well, maybe $1.00 and I would spit in his face.

I actually voted for this ego maniac, something I deeply regret.

That made me laugh karenb since spitting was the first thing that came to my mind when I read this.

If you get to go I hope you’ll live blog the lunch, though it will be even before breakfast in my time zone.

Thanks & well said Karenb.Don’t worry after this pair of BClinton & Hilliary are off the scene screwing Americans on behalf of Corporations…The other Clinton will step up to do the same,as a matter of fact she is already burnishing her credentials at the Clinton Foundation.

U know the Clinton Foundation where BClinton gets the Corporatist to hand over a paltry 350 million to African nations after raping ‘em of their natural resources & dignity to the tune of trillions.

I wish I had 25,000 dollars to have lunch with a disgraced ex-president. That side-show huckster sure knows how to work the rubes,don’t he?

I won’t be at this meeting, though I’m sure they would benefit from the insights and wit my wife and I would bring.

Bill Clinton’s $80 Million Payday, or Why Politicians Don’t Care That Much About Reelection” (NakedCapitalism.Com, Matt Stoller, May 22, 2012) makes great points. Plus, Hillary and Bill’s son-in-law is an ex-Goldman Sachs guy who’s now running his own hedge fund.

A bit of data left out – like there is no “payday” that increases his wealth and the son in law left the firm years ago and the firm itself was a goodie two shoes that tried to save companies – but it makes a nice smear.

I think Maddow actually said something like that.

Many years ago (early 1990’s) a few baseball players from opposing teams were riding in a cab together while shooting fans with squirt guns with bleach inside them (yes, really). What it proved that was these guys really didn’t give a shit about winning or beating the other team, they were all in bed together, and enjoyed playing games with the fans (I’m certain mocking them as poor dolts), not against each other.

Tell my why politics today is not exactly the same way? Clinton is as dedicated to causes as his allegiance to HIS pocket book will allow. He and W are both members of the same club, a club that has very little to do with statesmanlike behavior (Jimmy Carter is the last of that breed) and more to do with creating pseudo royalty, American style. Clinton and his progeny will be forever comfortable; thanks to idiots like us thinking he ever gave a shit about the people.

Hey, at least we’ll see his grandchildren embarrassing themselves on the cover of People magazine someday……

The Democratic party decided long ago …

That ONLY corrupt frauds like Clinton would be allowed to run for office as Democrats.

Thus… the totally corrupt party that now exists.

So of course a slimy creep like Clinton would continue to shill for other corrupt slimy creeps.

Obama and all the other corrupt politicians learned the “Clinton lesson” well.

If a corrupt politician is willing to sell their soul… sell out the Americans people… and take sides with the corruptors of our government… then that person will be rewarded.
