[guest post by Dana] Last night in Seattle, President Obama spoke at two fundraisers. Donors paid between $500 and $20,000 for one of the fundraisers, and $25,000 per person for the other one (dinner to support the super-PAC that works to keep Democrats in power in the U.S. Senate). The president has received criticism for jetting off on a three-day West Coast fundraising trip in light of the many crises currently taking place both here and abroad. At one of the fundraisers, the president made an eye-popping comment : “Part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world, the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people,” Obama said Tuesday, speaking at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser at an Italianate mansion across Lake Washington from the downtown skyline. As he often does, Obama said he’s spending his time out on the road trying to fight that kind of cynicism from seeping in. Some of that cynicism, Obama joked, was because of the news, which he said he doesn’t tend to watch himself. … To the crowd in Seattle, though, he said about the news, “Whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.” Which is funny because clearly he does not know what they are going to report about UNTIL HE READS THE NEWS REPORTS: From the 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans, to the IRS targeting conservative nonprofit groups, to the revelations about veterans dying while waiting for care because of falsified lists at the Department of Veterans Affairs, the president and his top aides have admitted that they found out about them in the media. –Dana
