We all know that President Barack Obama is a narcissist. And we all know about the National Basketball Association (NBA) strike/lockout. But what do they have in common? Until Friday, November 18, 2011, nothing. Then the “The First Ever Obama Classic Basketball Game,” a reelection fundraiser was announced.
Obama’s re-election campaign has recruited more than two dozen NBA stars for a fundraising basketball game to be played in Washington D.C. on December 12, 2011. Ticket prices range from $100 (for the “nose-bleed” section) to $5,000 (for courtside seats), with the money going to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising account by the Democrat Party and Obama’s re-election campaign. According to the Obama campaign website, the first $5,000 of a contribution goes to the Obama Victory Fund 2012. If a donor chooses to give more he or she can give as much as $30,800, with that contribution going to the Democrat National Committee.
The Obama campaign says it has not yet determined whether Obama will attend the event, let alone suit up for it.Rich Mitchell is the Sr. Managing Editor of Conservative Daily News.
