MIAMI BEACH - President Barack Obama continued his fundraising sprint Monday, boosting Democratic congressional candidates with two separate fundraisers in Florida.
But the president was less effusive when it came to another Democrat running for statewide office. He lumped Democratic Senatorial candidate Rep. Kendrick Meek in with three other “outstanding members of congress,” including Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Alan Grayson during his remarks and, in an unfortunate mispronunciation, called him “Congressman Kendrick Meeks” – twice. The two fundraisers were expected to raise $1.5 million, with a total of 450 people at both.
At 7:14 p.m. Obama emerged from backstage into a small ball room at the Fontainebleau, after a delay of some time, for the first, less pricey fundraiser. He had been preceded by Speaker Pelosi, and Rep.'s Van Hollen and Wasserman Schultz before her, but did not come out for another 25 minutes or so after Pelosi finished speaking, as the crowd milled about.
After being introduced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at his second fundraiser of the evening, Obama calls her “one of the greatest speakers of all time.”
“She’s very nice and she’s very friendly, but boy she is tough,” he said. “I could not have a better partner in trying to lead the country than Nancy Pelosi.” Obama sharpened the ‘mop’ attack line he’s used lately, questioning Republicans who criticize his efforts to clean up the mess he inherited without offering to pitch in. “Help out your country,” Obama said as if he were speaking to them. “Clean up the mess that you made.”
