Barbra Streisand skips Democratic fundraiser ($30,400 gets pic w/ prez)
POLITICO ^ | 8/17/10 | PATRICK GAVIN

Posted on 08/17/2010 10:47:57 AM PDT by Liz

Streisand and Jeffrey Katzenberg were no-shows at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser.....billed as co-hosts w/ Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams. Notables included Judd Apatow, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and Reps. Howard Berman, Brad Sherman, Judy Chu and Laura Richardson. The price to be a co-host was $30,400 per couple, which included a photo with Obama — though POTUS said photo ops weren't the point of the evening. "I hope you understand why we're here tonight,'' said Obama. "It's not to take a picture with the president. We're here to make sure those who took the tough votes are rewarded."

obamanation language again: “are rewarded” by paying mega bucks to be there! obamanation cannot tell the truth ... and I believe he no longer knows the truth... everything is subjective to his mental skew

"We're here to make sure those who took the tough votes are rewarded."

I believe there is a quote from the time of the English Civil War in which an member of Parliament scoffs, "Well, if a member of parliament cannot become rich by holding the office, then I fail to see the purpose of the office."

What’s the reward? The opportunity to look stupid yet again?

“...right after Zero made his remarks about the mosque..just wondering...”

That thought crossed my mind too but a Barbra Steisand Jew is a liberal self-hating Jew and I can’t believe she would do anything other than nod her head in approval of Obama’s Friday remarks.

I think many in the hollywood community were(silently)in the Hillary camp....and were forced to pinch their nostrils when supporting/voting for Obama...

...a practice all too familiar to conservatives voters.

“obamanation cannot tell the truth ... and I believe he no longer knows the truth... everything is subjective to his mental skew”

I hadn’t looked at it that way, but I think you’re on the money. I don’t think the Obama administration believes there is such a thing as truth. It explains a lot.

Good call.

Hillary Clinton’s $2.6 Million Hollywood Hit

Tuesday, March 27, 2007

Sen. Hillary Clinton hit Hollywood last night at the estate of grocery store mogul Ron Burkle and took home $2.6 million for her presidential campaign.

It was twice as much as Sen. Barack Obama raised last month at a similar fundraiser thrown by DreamWorks SKG’s David Geffen — a point that was made privately during the Clinton event by many of the fundraisers.

And while the Burkle event didn’t have the quantity of star power that the Geffen event had, it sure had the quality. Clinton was seated at the head table with Barbra Streisand and her husband, actor James Brolin; Yahoo chief executive Terry Semel, who once was the co-head of Warner Bros. with Robert Daly; and Daly, with wife, songwriter Carole Bayer Sager.

This is the good thing about the Hard Left/Right. Nothing is ever good enough for either of them. Thankfully most of the really Hard left supported Obama will turn on him due to this simple fact.

I think the reason Hollywood and Dem politicians have so much in common is that they both live self-decieving lives, where they pretend to do and feel things they really don't.
