James Duke Mason, son of famous international singer and former Go-Go's lead singer Belinda Carlisle is an Obama supporter and wants to raise $1,000 for the campaign prior to Oct. 24th.

He says "I recognize that Obama will change America".... he also said that "My Mom and her friends have already given me $315.00".... he wants to be part of the "movement of change in America".

James has lived in France since he was a toddler. Belinda moved her family (her husband is Morgan Mason, son of famed film actor James Mason) to the French countryside in 1992.

At least Belinda moved, instead of being a rat hypocrite (i.e. Alec Baldwin.)

He needs more than a month to raise $1000.00 with a $315.00 head start? What kind o an underachieving lay about is this

It is widely known (Belinda has talked about this at various times), that when Belinda was giving birth to James in April 1992, the City of Los Angeles was going up in flames with the LA riots, after the Rodney King cop verdict — and that’s when she decided to pack her bags and move to Europe.

I just saw Belinda on 8/26 at a concert in Virginia.... she looks amazing at 50!

Carlisle married Morgan Mason, son of the late British actor James Mason, in 1986. They moved to France 10 years later and eventually settled in England. Their 16-year-old son, James Duke Mason, is serving as a congressional page in Washington this summer.

“He has no interest in music at all,” Carlisle says.

They don't "work" in France

He’s only 16 years old.

$1,000 is enough to cover the cost for one of Michelle Obama’s Botox injections to her forehead so that the mean scowl and frown she displays when she talks about America can “disappear” before Nov. 4th.....

That is one angry woman........

She was pretty hot then. Back in college I tumbled with a gal for about a year that looked almost exactly like her.

The comments are rolling in..lol. He is deleting anything negative. My how those liberals work so hard...$315.00 from his mom and she is worth at least 4 or 5 million. Must be a Biden offspring.

I love their love of freedom of speech...deleting negative posts left and right...well more right than left. You catch my drift.

Of all the things I wanted to do with Belinda, listen to her son raise money for a politician was NOT on the list

Belinda’s husband Morgan Mason, son of actor James Mason, was an aide to Ronald Reagan in the early 1980’s.

Yes, but I guess now Morgan is somewhat of a Libertarian. He really liked Ron Paul during the primary season.

Whew, at least she’s older than me (though not by much)

Wish I’d started a rock/pop band.

That’s great, actually. They gave the kid just enough money to encourage him, but not enough to actually meet his goal.

He has to figure out how to get to 1 k himself. That’s how you raise a kid, not giving them everything they want and killing any ambition they might have in life.

He lives in France. So far he is overachieving.

How old is? Ten? If he is an adult, his meager efforts aren't something Obama is going to care about.

I agree she looked totally hot in that video. I like that song pretty well, but “Circle In The Sand” is my favorite of hers.

Isn’t calling Belinda Carlisle a singer using the loosest sense of the word?

"great singer"

Sure...if you say so. I guess I just don't have the beat.

She’s got distinct vocal chords, that’s for sure. But she’s one of the best, IMO.
