"Attention millionaires and billionaires"

Last December, Barack Obama blasted the Bush tax cuts as being for "millionaires and billionaires." Several days ago, he blasted Republicans, particularly the Tea Party, for refusing to increase taxes, for only wanting to benefit "millionaires and billionaires" (especially those who have corporate jets.)

Today is Obama's 50th birthday.  The birthday boy attended a party for himself last night in Chicago.  A thousand people were expected to attend -- at a cost of up to $35,000 per couple.  For those who really wanted to wish him well, another party was planned for afterward, limited to only 80 or 100 people.  You know, VIPs.

Hmmm....what kind of people could afford to attend such celebrations in Obama's honor?
