CONCORD, NH – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Fergus Cullen issued the following statement today in advance of Barack Obama’s high-dollar fund-raiser tonight in Beverly Hills, California:
“As New Hampshire families worry about how the turmoil on Wall Street will affect their pocketbooks, Barack Obama joins fellow celebrity Barbra Streisand and other limousine liberals tonight in Beverly Hills for a $28,500 a head fund-raiser. It sounds like the recent economic problems aren’t hurting the Hollywood left’s cash flow. Nevertheless, Granite Staters who ‘cling’ to their ‘guns’ and ‘religion’ will rightfully wonder what Obama really thinks about them, as he shares a few laughs Hollywood glitterati about his two-day swing through our rural state.”
New Hampshire Republican Victory offices will pay tribute tonight to the Obama-Streisand event by playing some of Barbra Streisand’s greatest hits.
