Obama bemoans “people hurting” at Sarah Jessica Parker fundraiser


CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller reported from the glitzy $40,000 a person Obama fundraiser at the home of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. Yes, you read that right, $40,000 each.  Ponder that as you read this next tweet:

Pres Obama said he knows there are "still a lot of people hurting out there…we constantly remind ourselves how much more we have to do."

While rubbing elbows with New York’s rich and famous, Obama paused to remember the Americans suffering under his economy, how sweet.

Here’s a peek at the menu — steak from the restaurant Marea:

Let the snark begin:

Glad someone's working RT @DavidNakamura: Matthew Broderick not at Obama's Sarah Jessica Parker fundraiser. “Matthew had a show” Obama said.

Sarah Jessica Parker throwing huge fundraiser for Obama tonight. I expect she'll get a presidential pardon for the SATC movies.

Shorter @BarackObama : But Bush is the reason I am at a $40,000 per person celebrity dinner at Sara Jessica Parker's home #tcot #p3

$40,000 a plate to dine with SJP and Barack Obama. No wonder he thinks the private sector is "doing fine". Hope and Change?

Price tag for Sarah Jessica Parker's shindig with the POTUS is roughly the average American's income for the year. #DoingJustFine

Are we supposed to feel bad for Obama because he is too “busy” to take his wife on a real date?

Perhaps another fundraiser will do.  Only $10,000 a head, but Mariah Carey’s performing:

Pres Obama now at the Plaza for 2nd fundraiser: 250 supporters paying $10,000 each. They get to see Mariah Carey perform too.

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) June 15, 2012

But at least Obama’s still thinking about the little people hurting out there.
