Obama Does Not Even Hide It . . . He's Coming to Take Money From Georgia

Barack Obama is coming to Atlanta.

President Obama is holding a high dollar fundraiser in a Georgia city where the poverty level exceeds the national average. And, ironically enough, the Georgia Democratic Party won't even benefit from Obama's visit.

Look at the fundraiser invitation sent out by the Obama campaign.

Examine the invitation closely.

A disclaimer is seen at the foot of this coveted invite. The disclaimer reads:

"Paid for by Obama Victory 2012, A Joint Fundraising Committee Authorized by Obama for America, the Democratic National Committee, and the State Democratic Parties in the Following States: CO, FL, IA, NV, NH, NC, OH, PA, VA, and WI."

The Obama for America website goes even further:

"The first $5,000 of a contribution to OVF 2012 will be allocated to Obama for America (with the first $2,500 designated for the primary election, and the next $2,500 for the general election). The next $30,800 of a contribution will be allocated to the Democratic National Committee. Any additional amounts from a contributor will be divided among the State Democratic Party Committees as follows, up to $10,000 per committee and subject to the biennial aggregate limits: FL (17%); OH (16%); PA (13); CO (11%); NC (11%); VA (11%); NV (6%); WI (6%); IA (5%); and NH (4%). A contributor may designate his or her contribution for a particular participant. The allocation formula above may change if following it would result in an excessive contribution. Contributions will be used in connection with a Federal election."

President Obama and his re-election campaign is not even hiding it. Obama is coming to Georgia, to take money from Georgia, and send it to other states.

That should tell any observer all they need to know about how the Obama campaign sees Georgia.
