Obama to $7,500 per Plate Fundraiser Hosts: Can’t Stay for Dinner, Gotta Scoop the Poop

I have absolutely no sympathy for the hosts and guests at a $7,500 per plate Rhode Island fundraiser where President Obama was the guest of honor. It’s people like them who helped bring about this debacle. That being said, it was awfully rude of him to duck out before the meal was served, offering a pretty lame (to say the least) excuse for his early departure.

President Obama’s final stop was a $7,500-a-head fundraiser in the well-appointed home of Arnold “Buff” and Johnnie Chace on the East Side, not far from Brown University.The president spoke for about 20 minutes, then left before the dinner of locally grown foods by celebrated Rhode Island chefs — including lobster risotto — that Mrs. Chace had planned.

Fewer than 50 were in attendance, according to Eric Hyers, campaign manager for Providence Mayor David N. Cicilline, the Democratic candidate for the House seat being vacated by Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy.

[…]Mr. Obama concluded his remarks at about 7:30, saying he couldn’t stay for dinner.

“I’ve got to go home to tuck in the girls and walk the dog and scoop the poop,” he said.

Classy. Doug Powers notes how unappetizing that last comment must have been to the hungry guests, and how this isn’t the first time Dear Leader has dissed his useful idiots supporters.

There’s no greater compliment you can pay to chefs than by talking about dog s*#t just before everybody eats and then skipping out on the meal they cancelled their prior engagements in order to serve you…

Evidently the President has been reviewing his notes from the Progressive version of How to Win Friends and Influence People. For one moment we actually respect Frank “Shove it” Caprio.
