Who is out of touch with the American public? Barack Obama's lavish fundraiser: Let's break out some French champagne!

Obama's fund raiser last night:  $100,000+ of French Champagne!  

President Barack Obama attended a fundraiser at Jay-Z's 40/40 Club in Manhattan that featured a champagne tower of 350 bottles worth $105,000 - more than twice the median household income of an American family.
The tower of $300-a-bottle Armand de Brignac Brut Gold, known as 'Ace of Spades' because of its label, is a permanent fixture at the club.'It’s floor-to-ceiling gold bottles in the entire space,' a 40/40 representative told the New York Post. 'It’s beautiful—breathtaking. It’s the first thing you see when you walk in.'The median income for an American family was $51,413 in 2011.
Given what Matt Yglesias said about property and redistribution, can we all get a few bottles from Barack Obama?   Barack Obama did say he cared about all of us.  I am offended I did not get an invite.

  1. I would not eat or drink anything that has been in the same room with Obama. I do not believe in eating food that has been sacrificed to idols.
