San Francisco philanthropist Susie Tompkins Buell, one of the Democratic Party's most generous benefactors, is keeping her checkbook closed when President Obama holds high-priced California fundraisers this week.
Ms. Buell, a major supporter of Democrat candidates and progressive (socialistic) causes, is frustrated with the president's leadership.
She has donated millions of dollars to Democratic causes and presidential candidates, including Bill Clinton, John Kerry, Al Gore and Hillary Rodham Clinton.
In the past 10 years, she has given $25 million to progressive political and charitable causes and has raised $10 million for candidates and committees, her office said.

But as Obama flies from Southern California to San Francisco to vacuum up donations in the reliable Democratic ATM, Buell will attend neither of his $35,800-per-plate fundraisers in San Francisco, nor a fundraising rally at the Masonic Auditorium.
Buell is a loyal Democrat, but says she hasn't yet opened her wallet for Obama's campaign and probably won't anytime soon.
Food writer Josh Ozersky (pictured) says Waffle House is the great American restaurant in a report at the link below.
Ozersky said Denny’s is a just a weaker, better-furnished version of Waffle House. He even said every restaurant is in some way a paler approximation of Waffle House.
Because, he says, Waffle House is the Great American Restaurant.
Surely they were tongue-in-cheek comments.
He had to be jesting unless most of the 1,600 Waffle House restaurants are significantly better than the one that recently went belly up here in Loveland, Colorado.
The cost of a breakfast meal at our short-lived Waffle House was about the same as a comparable meal at our Perkins, IHOP and Village Inn restaurants.
However, at our local Perkins, IHOP and Village Inn restaurants patrons sit in roomy padded booths in a much more spacious and inviting environment.
A typical booth at Waffle House is shown above. About as glamorous as the sit-down accommodations at our local Subway sandwich shop.
The vast majority of Subway sandwiches are carry-out, probably because of the hard bench seats.
After getting burnt waffles a couple of times we gave up on our local Waffle House. They apologized each time and gave us good waffles but by that time the eggs were cold.
The Waffle House restaurant arrived here shortly after Krispy Kreme Doughnuts came to Northern Colorado. It was like we were being invaded by the South. Left us wondering when we would see Bubba's Used Cars.
Waffle House is gone but Krispy Kreme (yum) is still here and Bubba's Used Cars never did show.
New CBO (Congressional Budget Office) Report Decimates 'Obamanomics': Real Unemployment Hits 15%.
“The rate of unemployment in the United States has exceeded 8 percent since February 2009, making the past three years the longest stretch of high unemployment in this country since the Great Depression.
The official unemployment rate excludes those individuals who would like to work but have not searched for a job in the past four weeks as well as those who are working part-time but would prefer full-time work. If those people were counted among the unemployed, the unemployment rate in January 2012 would have been about 15 percent.
Compounding the problem of high unemployment, the share of unemployed people looking for work for more than six months—referred to as the long-term unemployed—topped 40 percent in December 2009 for the first time since 1948, when such data began to be collected; it has remained above that level ever since.
If you tuned into to Comedy Central to catch Stephen Colbert (pictured) you may have been surprised to catch Colbert talking about Herman Cain (yesterday's news).
Yes, there was a rerun of the show last night, and it appears to be a new development, as those who had tickets to the taping received word that, due to “unforeseen reasons,” the show will be off for at least the week.
Another report said Colbert has suspended his show temporarily due to an emergency in his family.
