President Barack Obama continues to campaign among the finest in the film and fashion business. He believes it will be up to them to get him re-elected.
“What we’re going to have to do is present that choice,” Obama said as he rallied his glitzy troops at a fundraiser at the home of Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker. “You’re the tie-breaker, you’re the ultimate arbiter.”
Fifty donors paid $40,000 to attend the event.
“You’ve done amazing important things these past four years… I very much look forward to the things you’re going to accomplish in the next four years,” Parker said of the first lady.
The same night, Obama had a fundraiser at the Fifth Avenue Plaza Hotel that raised $2.5 million.
Obama’s entourage made traveling around Manhattan nearly impossible. Some New Yorkers found the bustle quite unnecessary.
“From 3 to 6, you’re really inconveniencing a lot of commuters. There has to be a better way to go about it rather than putting out how many thousands of riders out of commission, and having to find another way home,” said commuter Mary Grech.
Some analysts believe Obama is making a major mistake by campaigning to celebrities rather than the thousands of hurting Americans. Nonetheless, Obama’s campaign hopes to convince voters that Mitt Romney is out of touch with the average American.
