Bush-McCain Fundraiser Scaled Back Due To Lack Of Takers

By Eric Kleefeld - May 24, 2008, 12:31AM

A planned mega-fundraiser for the GOP, featuring President Bush and John McCain, has now been scaled back in the face of a daunting problem: Too few people actually wanted to buy tickets.
According to the Phoenix Business Journal, fundraiser set for this Tuesday in the city's convention center failed to sell enough tickets, leading to fears that the anti-Bush protesters might end up outnumbering actual attendees.

The new plan is for the Bush-McCain fundraising effort, which will benefit both the McCain campaign and the RNC, to be held in private residences in the Phoenix area away from media coverage.

15. that is the best goddam news.
i'm just smiling.
but will it make mainstream media? will the world know that the republicans are going down in flames and they ought to jump over to the democratic side?
i'm wondering and i don't watch the msm. did obama's 75000 strong rally get the press? or will the press all be hanging out at individual's homes to prop up the republican replica of the present president to sell that to the american people?

The new plan is to hold a "Straight-talkin'-McCain" fundraiser away from media coverage?

I smell a rat.

With all McCain's lobbyist friends they weren't able to find enough to people throw money at him in public? While he is with Bush?

So, no photos with McCain and Bush, McCain and his lobbyist friends? Before an election?

How conveeeenient...

26. Better start busing in troops again...
Oh that's right, BushCo & McSame, Inc. already threw most of the troops into a meat grinder multiple times.

Maybe McSame can keep saying:
'My friends... I know I do not represent anything you want for this nation, but the fascism we have hi-jacked your government with, benefits my Party's version of America and corporate interests.'

29. You Can't Compete With Bingo Night In Sun City...
The damned thing about those booooosh "fundraisers"...the seems to vanish once word gets out he's coming to town.

Honestly, I am disappointed. I was hoping for some pics of georgie and gramps in a lip lock and all sorts of great quotes of how Gramps would be the next "Decidererererer".

I guess Cindy will have to go hustle more Budweiser to make up for this shortfall.
