Barack Obama For Sale: 50% Off

Tyler Durden's picture


The following email intercept from a senior Managing Director of Obama bastion Evercore (Roger Altman: nuf said), explains all there is to know about  the Obama presidency, but it does not explain why Groupon still does not have a "meet your president, half off price" coupon yet. Anyway, we'll got and report ourselves to @AttackWatch immediately as this is obviously a non-subversive counter-disinformation campaign.

Hi there - fundraising this quarter has been a struggle (as you can imagine give all the negative stuff around the President) - they are offering a one off opportunity to attend this small dinner on Monday for $25k instead of the full max out of $38.5k, or a couple at $38.5k instead of $77k.  Just wanted to offer that in case you're interested!
Charles A. Myers
Senior Managing Director
Evercore Partners
I'm co-hosting a small dinner with President Barack Obama at the Park Avenue home of Jane Hartley and Evercore CEO Ralph Schlosstein on Monday September 19th at 5:30pm.  Evercore Chairman and former Assistant Treasury Secretary Roger Altman is also a co-host. Many other senior Wall Street individuals will be attending.
This will be an intimate dinner with the opportunity to spend quality time with the President in a private home.  Given the current Republican field, it is more imperative than ever that we re-elect President Obama and I hope you can join us on September 19th.
You can RSVP to me directly or here:
 $35,800 per person / $71,600 per couple

Senior Managing Director

My Senior Senator, John Forbes Kerry (who served in Viet Nam) has an annual option on his state taxes to a) check a box then b) pay at the previous, higher income tax rate.

Now, I'll grant you that the accountants attached to his second wife's first husband's Trust Fund won't let this happen, but the master won't pay "his fair share."

So, I'd guess that "Do You Know Who I AM?!!!" wouldn't be paying full price, either.

This is all a small price to pay in order to repay Obama for the GM restructuring...wonder what the final total of Evercore employees in attendance will be?

""Altman is founder and chairman of Evercore Partners, which advised on the GM deal. Evercore, after being paid $46 million by GM pre-bankruptcy, asked for a $17.9 million "success fee." A U.S. bankruptcy trustee termed the fees "staggering" and "inordinately large" and said it "clearly exceeds the bounds of reasonableness" given that "Evercore had no success at finding a purchaser or funder for the Debtor.""

Speaking of "democracy", the communists (Enhedslisten) just took 6.7% of the election vote in Denmark. No kidding. Their manifest on economics is an almost copy-and-paste of the Marxist manifesto.

Election win went to the socialists. Is it too late for Denmark to join the deficit-spend-to-bust club?

The Danish live in their own little world. They paved the whole frigging Island with windmills; literally; from shore to shore, and then off-shore. The result? they pay they electric bill to Germany every year; they live on a giant extension cord under the North Sea. they "think" they're a green country. I wouldn't be expecting them to sober up anytime soon.

Can tell real! I like 'given current R field, imperative to reelect Obama'

Status quo desperate.

Why even more important everyone here send message out to friends on days like today where Central Bank manipulation leads to high gas prices and easy to show. If you talk about QE or inflation, it's blah, blah, blah. But send them info that Bankers are fucking printing money today and it made gas futures go up $5.40!!

Talking points for you:

U.S. regular gasoline retail price (the pump price) average about 70 cents per gallon higher than the RBOB futures contract price. Pump lags RBOB about a week.

Today at exact same time EURUSD price go up, price went up at pump 5 cents. We will see it next week. You can chart it.

Nymex RBOB Gasoline Future
2.7798 $.0540 1.98%

New AP poll shows that most people don't care about stock market, but care about gasoline price.

Hell ya.  What are the dimensions?  Is it wireless?  Does it highlight the words?  I have so many questions.  Screw Obama.

And don't forget the "behind the scenes" package which includes not only the teleprompter, but also the intern who types in the script hot off the wire. 

Blue dress not included.

Maybe he's created a market for teleprompters; "Buy your own teleprompter; play fantaxy President"; could be the next big thing; I think we should get right on it.

Where else but ZH.

Not only a copy of the invite, but a floor plan.

Next up - a guest list?

From the looks of things, it will not be a very grand party.

Thank you all for the grins.

A c-note?  At 25k a head, they probably could use c-notes for toilet paper.  All kidding aside guys, doesn't it make you a tad sick to your stomach to know that if you wish to have an opportunity to shape the president's thinking, you need to pony up 25K?  Imagine for a moment the kinds of folks likely to see that as an opportunity.  Be afraid.  Be very afraid.

IMO, it will take a hell of a lot more than $25k to

"shape the prez's thinking".

That $25k may get him to remember your name for the evening.

For a Wall St. investment banker, I'm imagining they'll get a decent ROI for a mere $25k.

Besides, they likely got the money from the Fed window.
