Maybe He's Jealous... Or Hitting Them Up

From Fox News: One-hundred young philanthropists recently descended on the White House for a chat with Obama administration officials about collaborating with the government when writing checks to charity in the future.
Many on the guest list reportedly are poised to inherit billions of dollars ... someday.
The optics of the event present an apparent clash with the administration's tough rhetoric on the class divide in this country. But the summit was designed to encourage collaboration between the government and elite private citizens, to figure out ways to potentially maximize the effect of large donations.
"It's not just seen as some old guy writing checks anymore," 26-year-old Zac Russell, who attended the meeting, told The New York Times. "It's young people who want to solve real problems."
Those problems include climate change and millennial health care, based on one guest's account that was published in the New York Times.
The meetings were held privately in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building -- but publicly, President Obama has been somewhat hostile to many in this crowd's tax bracket.
Yep.. Obama loves talking bad about 1%ers but loves their money and attention.
Typical liberal hypocrite.
