Obama, Bush and Beck all head to Chicago this week.

On Wednesday George W. Bush will be speaking in Elgin Illinois at the inaugural World Leaders Forum at Judson University in a conference titled, Free Enterprise: The Dream of all Free People.  On Thursday Glenn Beck will bring his theatrical stage show to the Chicago theater with his now famous Glenn Beck Live show.  Also on Thursday, President Obama will be in Chicago once again with three Chicago fundraisers. They don’t call Chicago  ” The Windy City ” just based on the winds blowing off the shores of lake Michigan. Whern the wind is out of the Northeast, it comes down the corridor created by lakes Ontario and Eerie, which gives Illinois the much talked about lake effect snowstorms. This week the largest portion of  that wind will be indoors, in the form of political rhetoric and campaign propaganda. Which ever side of the political spectrum a person resides on, one common thread will link all three of these functions later on this week in Chicago: They will all be raking in big money. Whoever said it isn’t about the money, when talking about why people get involved in politics today ?

Glenn Beck Live tickets are going for a reasonable $35 to $95 dollars for the 8 pm show.  That is a pretty much standard price for an evening of entertainment, and can be considered to be quite a bargain, when we consider Glenn Beck’s star-power today.

And from NBC Chicago we see big money politics on display this week in Chicago :

In Elgin, Bush serves as keynote speaker for Judson’s conference with a presentation called “Free Enterprise: The Dream of All Free People.” He’ll also answer audience questions during a moderated Q&A before a panel addressing “the value of free enterprise and share their perspectives as entrepreneurs.”

Tickets to the one-day event are $275 for general admission. VIP tickets cost $2,000 and include a chance to meet Bush during a pre-event soiree with appetizers and a possible formal photo op with the former president.

On Thursday, Obama launches a trio of campaign fundraising efforts. Two of President Obama’s events are pricey parties at MK Chicago and N9ne, and the third is a lower-priced shindig at Navy Pier.

Bulls star Derrick Rose is scheduled to make an appearance at Navy Pier, according to the Chicago Tribune. Tickets to the 6:30 p.m. event are $250 and can be ordered at my.barackobama.com/April14Chicago.

Funds raised benefit the Democratic National Committee and Obama’s campaign. According to the web invitation, the first $5,000 of a contribution goes to Obama for America, and the next $30,800 goes to the Democratic National Committee.

CBS and Time Already on Hope N Change Redux 2012 Obama Campaign

       The 2012 Presidential elections are  20 months away,and while we see our Congress locked in a massive budget brawl that looks like it will end up in a government shutdown later on this week, CBS followed Obama’s early campaign announcement lead by starting their own version of Barack’s get out the vote campaign immediately, with the following false headline posed as an honest question:

    ”  How Good are Obama’s re-election chances ? “   I suppose working on Obama’s re-election campaign is the utmost priority over at CBS and Time, considering the fact that they both spent the bulk of their airtime/ print space promoting him in 2008.  In reading this campaign ad, er.. I mean article, I was hoping to find signs that CBS might actually see the danger Obama and the democrats pose today to everything American, and come to their senses. As you can see here from the above linked article, CBS and Time are already trying to make Americans believe that no matter who runs against him in 2012, Barack will win a second term:

 ” So it’s a good time to ask: how good are his chances – at the moment, at least – to win a second term? The short answer is: Pretty decent.”  And as Time’s Michael Scherer notes, even those who disagree with Mr. Obama tend to like him – a crucial factor in winning the independents who broke from the Democrats in the 2010 midterm elections. The fact that 84 percent of Americans (according to an Associated Press poll last month) call Mr. Obama a likeable person speaks to his advantage among the casual voters who may not go to the polls in a midterm year but will cast ballots in 2012.” (emphasis mine)

    This is why I personally, do not take anything Time, CBS, and the AP say/print/report today seriously.  America is approaching $15 trillion dollars in debt, gasoline prices are now at $3.65 a gallon (as opposed to $1.84  when Obama took office), food prices are skyrocketing, federal revenue is shrinking ,with the fact that they are lying to themselves about the Unemployment numbers today and that will expose this very soon, we are now engaged in a 3rd war in Libya that has already cost us $600 million dollars, and CBS and Time want us to think that Obama will be re-elected because he is likeable ?  That is not news reporting there, that is campaign propaganda, period.

   That CBS/Time Obama campaign ad masquerading as a news piece also goes on to try to make it look like the Teaparty/GOP split will make the primaries such a difficult battle that it will alienate the swing voters, thus enabling Barack to win a second term. They are trying to suggest that swing voters will ignore the $15 trillion dollars in debt that Obama’s Liberal Democrats are refusing to take action on in passing the GOP proposed serious budget cuts, and re-elect the man who directs those actions?  These people are in for a rude awakening in 2012 that will make the 2010 election beatdown of the Democrat’s Liberal Socialist agenda pale in comparison.
