Academy award winning actor George Clooney is set to host a fundraiser for Barack Obama in Switzerland next month.
The event, taking place on the evening of September 2 in Geneva, Switzerland will be split into two parts: a reception and a dinner. According to Obamas National Finance Committee, tickets for the reception where Clooney will speak are going for $1,000, followed by a dinner at the home of NFC member Charles Adams for $10,000 a plate. Space for the dinner is limited to 75 guests.

will Paris Hilton be there with a bunch of rappers,too?
Is this legal? Hosting a fundraiser on foreign soil? What about foreign donors? Isn’t that illegal or has Obama found a way to break laws and yet still remain the “anointed one”?
Switzerland ? Perfect.
I thought donations from foreigners was illegal!!!
The left is just clueless. Do they not understand how bad stuff like this looks to the average voter?
Ah yes..........the communists are organizing again. Hollywood needs to be black listed again. It worked for about 60 years, might as well do it again.
Good questions! I want to know this too. This is going to go over so well with those “bitter white voters” he seems to be having a problem with!
No, they don’t.
Darfur what? Let them eat cake. I need money for Obama.
I’ve never respected Clooney as an actor. No reason to respect him as a human being, either...
No wonder the vacuous celebrity stuff is working.
Ouch!!!! He’s gonna need to put some ice on that.
According to the article, only donations from US citizens with valid passports will be accepted (yeah, right). I see another ad about elitists and celebrities coming on.
I thought Obama was already running for Fuhrer (leader) of Deutschland (Germany). I love diverse languages. Maybe he needs a rally in Nurnberg.
So foreigners get to contribute to our presidential race?
Think about the carbon footprint!
“Clooney will speak... followed by a dinner at the home of NFC member Charles Adams for $10,000 a plate...”
followed by a gay orgy upstairs. Invitation only.
Actors! Is there anything they DON'T know?
Yep. The left were all over it when Somoza donated to Nixon.
Megastar? Did Leatherheads even get a theatrical release? How many people saw The Good German? Syriana was an early anti-American bomb. The only hits he’s been in that I can recall are the Oceans movies and I’m not sure he’s the reason they’ve made money.
Was wondering the same thing too... I thought contributions from foreigners was a no-no.
“The left is just clueless. Do they not understand how bad stuff like this looks to the average voter?”
The better question is that does the average Democratic voter even care about this? Probably not.
I guess the foreign donations will just go into his new Swiss account.
Miss Clooney is a megastar? I wasn’t aware.
“actor George Clooney is set to host a fundraiser for Barack Obama in Switzerland”
Seriously...seriously...You can’t beg for better headlines...”another celebrity fund raiser for the celebrity.” Sweet!
WoW, you Dems; You know, even if the Dems win the special olympics — they’re still retarded...When will these guys ever learn.
He has never managed to get Americans to vote for them.
Obamarooney! Good name for a Swiss fundraiser.
I'll take a pass on the Swiss chocolate this time!
Why don’t they hold fundraisers in Hamastan, Damascus, Tehran, etc.? I’m sure they can find plenty of Obambi lovers in those places, too!!!!
only if your democrat.
I never got how George Clooney rates the title of Movie Star.
This couldn’t be better if we planned it. Another hollywood jerk raising money for a marxist in europe, I love it!
read an article the other day that Mama Hilton isn’t pleased with the McCain/Paris ad. Apparently, Maw and Paw Hilton each made the maximum allowable contributions to the McCain campaign.
Which raises the question .. how can they have $10K/seat fundraisers without splitting the take among various Dem entities and the Obama campaign? And can only Americans donate to a presidential campaign?
the end of the ad actually slams Obama too. not sure what the big deal is. more MSM spin.
Didn’t Kerry do the same thing? I imagine it’ll have the same result.
Thankfully the Democrats have yet to learn. They’re handing this election to McCain on a silver platter.
Probably a large percentage of them will be foreign nationals, IMO.
Watch for the list of attendees to be published in the MSM.
