No press at Obama’s Bay Area weekend fundraisers

Friday, September 23, 2011

imagePresident Obama’s fundraisers in Woodside and Atherton Sunday will be off limits to the press, unlike ones before that followed a similar script. BANG’s Josh Richman, who was a pool reporter during Obama’s last Bay Area money call in April speculates that his announcing plans to raise taxes on the wealthy while raking in $35,800 a plate from well-heeled donors might not look so swell. Then there’s also the proximity of Solyndra, just across the bay, which the President might not want to draw more attention to, he says.

Add: Not surprisingly, perhaps, Marjan Philhour, executive director of the Bay Area Democrats PAC, doesn’t think those things have much to do with the media blackout.
