Well, like everything Obama-related, it’s gonna cost ya:
Happy Birthday, buddy! Sneed hears real estate mogul Neil Bluhm is tossing a private birthday party here for President Obama, who turns 49 on Aug. 4.
• The shocker: The dinner invite to the Barack bash at Bluhm’s home requires a $30,000 donation to the Democratic National Committee!
• The stunner: Obama is also scheduled to be in town Aug. 5 for a fund-raiser at the Palmer House for U.S. Senate hopeful Alexi Giannoulias, who is hoping to capture Uncle Rocky’s old seat.
Look, I’m not an idiot – but I play one on my blog. I realize that every political event is going to cost people some green. That way, the organizers can keep the “little people” out and the “good people” in. I get it. What I don’t get is the exorbitant amount for a birthday party. I mean, $30,000? Seriously??
But hey, what do I know? I’m a Republican. We’re “the Party of the rich!“
