Meet Mitt Romney in Miami Next Week for Just $10,000

Categories: Politicks
Mitt Romney will be tearing through Florida next week and hopes to leave the state with somewhere between $5 and $8 million in his campaign's coffers. He'll be making stops in Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Tampa, Jacksonville and Boca Raton during the fundraising flourish on Wednesday and Thursday, and Miamians will get a chance to snap a picture with the presumed Republican nominee for the low, low price of $10,000.

On Wednesday, May 16, Romney will be stopping at a $50,000 per person lunch at a Tampa country club home of a developer. He'll then high tale it to good ol' Coral Gables for a reception at Republican's favorite fundraising destination: the Biltmore hotel. It's a $2,500 campaign donation just to get in the door, but if you want a chance to shake the former Massachusetts Governor's hand and say cheese for the camera with him that'll cost $10,000. The reception is scheduled for between 6 and 7 p.m.

Afterward Romney is Star Island bound. Local rich people and philanthropists Phil and Pat Frost will be opening their home on the celeb-infested isle for a fundraising dinner. The price of a plate: $50,000.

On Thursday, Romney will also be stopping at fundraisers in Jacksonville and Boca Raton. The trip appears to be purely for fundraising purposes, and there are no scheduled public events.

Obama has expences paid for by taxpayers because HES THE PRESIDENT. Also, nobody said anything bad about The Mitts fundraiser. He is a simple mind however, and so is every ignoramus that believes his b/s protestant ethic. Lets not forget he is a capitalist (not a good thing) and also a racist.

Obama's Scam...

This is ridiculous!! For free it would be an expense; Mit should pay us money (maybe not $10K, still money) to let him come and see us. We are the power, he is no there... yet, or will not be!!

The BIG difference here is that when Barry Obama comes to town($38,500.00 per couple, $10,000.00 per picture) the taxpayers pay for him...!! Romney's transport, etc. is payed by the RNC(Secret Service is provided for BOTH by the taxpayer). Barry Obama's TOTAL expenses are paid for by the taxpayers of this country. One trip to South Florida for Obama is over $2,000,000 million...!!What a scam, Obama does not care about the 99%, you're his "pretend" friend when you fork over all your money to him. Obama's transparency is showing...
