President Obama is Coming to the Promised Land — Texas

The air may not be clean in Texas, but that doesn’t stop a U.S. President from coming to Texas to raise money for federal races. Loyal Democrats and afficionados with deep pockets mark your calendars! President Obama will be in Austin, Texas on August 9th at the Four Seasons Hotel to raise money for congressional candidates. And the tickets are not cheap. If you have an extra $30,000 to spare in this depressed economy, you can take a picture with the President and mingle with the political elite. Enjoy!
