Top Fundraiser Blasts Obama over Class Warfare Rhetoric


One of Barack Obama's top fundraisers, a man who still says he will vote for Obama, nonetheless uncorked a litany of complaints against the president for using class warfare as a campaign tool.

Millionaire developer R. Donahue Peebles -- a 52-year-old D.C. native whose company website touts The Peebles Corp. as "the country's largest African American real estate development company," is a top fundraiser for President Barack Obama...raising between $100K and $200K for this reelection.

But in a 20-minute conversation with HuffPost Monday, Peebles blasted Obama's campaign messaging. He said, as he told other press outlets, that his frustration was sparked by receiving an email from the DNC that mocked Romney as"out of touch" for having a boat that fit 12 people, accompanied by a picture of the Republican presumptive nominee on vacation.

"That offended me. Now if I were on the fence, he'd have lost me,"said Peebles, who described himself as nonetheless a "big supporter of the president's."

"What I get concerned about is the message from the Obama campaign that we only want someone who has not been successful to run for president. What do we want here? You can't be successful and run the country? We don't want somebody who has been successful to run it?That doesn't make sense," Peebles said.

Peebles added more:

"We cannot attack wealth creation and attack people just because they're wealthy and we can't attack wealth and success, and making that a bad thing. It's like going to school and the bullies picking on the A-students, calling them nerds and so forth. So, what do we want,a whole school of dummies?"

    Mr. Peebles — if you feel so strongly about Obama’s disgusting political tactics, why do continue to support him? Does skin color have anything to do with it? Do something positive for yourself and country and vote for candidates that support the best interests of America and the American people.

    Sounds to me as though Ozero is not even able to ‘captivate’ his base much less the people needed to vote him back into office. The whole country will be better off without Ozero and that [especially] for his closest supporters.

    Mr.Peebles is a prime example of the average black voter in America today. Race trumps personal values when it comes to Obama. Obama will get 90% plus of the black votes come November simply because of his skin color. They don’t care that he has done nothing for them as a group or individually in his first term. They still suffer the highest unemployment and poverty rate in America. They don’t care that some of his policies are contrary to their core religious or moral values. How ignorant is that.

      Your analysis is correct. Black America has been brain-washed by their leftist Democrat politicians, community leaders and some places of worship. The black community in general does not support gay marriage and abortion but they continue to support Obama. Black people appear to be incapable of recognizing the damage wrought on their communities by socialist policies and the ignorance associated with them. Unfortunately, skin color is the litmus test for the majority of their votes.

      The sad part of Mr. Peebles comment is that he as a Black still thinks of himself as a member of group that contain all too many unsuccessful people and not as a successful individual. All too many Blacks didn’t think education and mastering employable skills was important, and there aren’t many jobs for those who can’t read and understand simple instructions. In this country modivation is all important and children born to single mothers start out with a handicap that takes reality and maturity to overcome. Few succeed and when you think about it those who do succeed have really worked hard to overcome personal problems such as attitude and dependence created by government handouts.
