Reporting from New York— The race is on to tap one of the most vital sources of campaign cash — Wall Street — and the early results are not looking good for President Obama.Meanwhile the lefty loons are continuing their #OccupyWallStreet nonsense, including spreading rumors that the band Radiohead would play a concert there this afternoon. Radiohead's management said the whole thing was fraudulent. Seems like the whiny little kids trying to occupy Wall Street are starving for attention.
The president's campaign struggled this week to sell out a fundraising dinner Friday at Manhattan's gilded Four Seasons restaurant despite its being hosted by America's No. 1 capitalist, Warren Buffett, according to people close to the campaign who were not authorized to speak publicly. The dinner for 100 was also a relative bargain at $10,000 a plate; recent fundraisers in Hollywood and New York have gone for $35,800 a pop.
