Obama Tells Supporters: I’ve Finished 60% Of My Goals


obama1President Obama rubbed elbows with some big-name stars at a pair of campaign events Monday night, telling his Hollywood supporters he’s completed nearly two-thirds of his┬ápresidential goals.

“We’ve got so much work left to do,” the president told some of his supporters.

About 200 people attended the event, each having paid at least $5,000 each to hear the president. Mr. Obama touted his accomplishments so far, such as health care reform, financial reform and ending the Iraq war — receiving applause from the crowd for each point.

Remarking that he keeps a checklist of goals in his desk, Mr. Obama took out a pen and acted as if he were checking off some items on his list.

“We’ve got about 60 percent done,” he said. “I’m pretty confident we can get the next 40 percent done in the next five years.”

The president acknowledged “the economy is still hurting right now” and reiterated his point that Republicans should be supporting his $447 billion jobs plan. He also said he needs help getting an immigration reform bill passed. “We’re going to have to mobilize and we’re going to have to organize and we’re going to have to tap into the best instincts of the American people in order to make it happen,” he said.

Earlier in the evening, Mr. Obama attended a fundraising dinner at a Los Angeles home. About 40 people attended the event, at a cost of $35,800 per person.

Mr. Obama told the more intimate crowd, “Back then it was still fresh and new. I didn’t have any gray hair. Everybody loved the ‘Hope’ posters and all that. This time it’s -we’ve got to grind it out a little bit. We’ve got to grind it out. But the cause is the same. And my passion is the same. And my commitment is the same.”

The president earlier in the day attended a fundraiser in Las Vegas, where he also unveiled measures aimed at stabilizing home prices.

By the day’s end, Mr. Obama will have attended 64 fundraising events this year, with 60 expressly for his re-election campaign, according to CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller.

  1. thats too much. what would he expect to have at 100 percent of his goals, I’m scared to think of it.
    must go say tehillim.
    he should live in the real world. He should have a working man’s job, thats all he should have.

  2. Great president. Clearly there is Divine Providence shining on his work. Good luck to those who hate Obama, you might not like Hashem either as you clearly have the right way yourself and do not consider that our Creator may indeed support the efforts of our Presidents. Have fun!

  3. #6, really? LOL

    Those who don’t like Obama might not like Hashem?

    Clearly Hashem has a hand in every part of every day life, period.

    Associating a human trait like ‘support’ for a polititian to Hashem is not just silly, it’s flat out ridiculous.
