Obama Losing Big San Francisco Donor

Due to his lack of leadership on environmental issues especially climate change, President Obama has lost, for now, the generous financial donations of one of the largest Democratic donors, San Francisco philanthropist Susie Tompkins Buell, co-founder of the Esprit clothing company.

Buell, like other generous donors to the progressive movement and Democratic Party, has been disappointment by Obama's lack of leadership. Instead of opening their checkbooks, they are not donating or hosting lavish fundraising dinners for him.

Buell said this about President Obama at a recent $5,000 per plate fundraiser, "I don't know where he stands on anything."
