    an improvement on the original GaFF.  Who wants a President who can't be bothered to prepare to speak to donors, voters or other situations where he is required to make a presentation.  If I were one of those who paif $500,000 for this dinner, then find out Mitt didn't put much effort into thinking about responses, I'd be ready to switch parties.

    •  $50,000 for dinner and schmooze (0+ / 0-)

      Donors don't care so much what the candidate says.....They want ACCESS.

      What shocked and offended me the most during the Monica Lewinsky scandal was how quickly Clinton took a phone call from a big campaign donor who wanted to talk about laws that might impact his personal sugar plantation.

        ,,,,why did he not challenge some of the questioners who were caught on video at the dinner. he didn't challenge them because he believes what he said.

        •  Simple. He believes it was wrong to say it (0+ / 0-)

          even at a fundraiser.....because by saying it, he got quoted.

          This damaged his reputation and that's just sooooo WRONG!
