LOS ANGELES (CBS) — President Obama is coming to L.A. Thursday for a fundraiser at George Clooney’s house.

The President is scheduled to arrive at LAX around 6 p.m.

A who’s who of Hollywood royalty is expected at Clooney’s residence located near Fryman Canyon in Studio City.

President Obama is expected to take a helicopter to a secret landing zone near Clooney’s house.

Expect road closures up and down Laurel Canyon and on some residential streets through Studio City and environs between 5-8 p.m.

The Clooney fundraiser is expected to add at least $15 million to the Obama re-election war chest.

Commander Andrew Smith is with the LAPD told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO that if drivers should stay away from the area altogether.

“The hot tip I think would be to avoid the streets around Mr. Clooney’s house, where there’s narrow streets, you can count on it being pretty crowded,” said Smith.

Councilman Paul Krekorian, who represents the Studio City district where Clooney resides, tweeted that residents who live south of Ventura Boulevard, can expect “local access to the area will be virtually sealed off from about 8-10 p.m. All local residents will need to show a current photo ID for home access.”

Krekorian said police are advising residents in the Fryman Canyon area to stay home or “make other arrangements for the day.” And he wrote, “there could be instances when you may be rerouted if you live in the region.”

With as many as 150 Hollywood stars and big wigs coming to the area, the Los Angeles Daily News said “Neighbors brace for starmageddon.”

The president is scheduled to stay overnight in Beverly Hills.

He doesn't have the talent to be a rock star. Heck, he barely has the talent to be on a reality show.

I've been in Manhattan a few times when Osama Obama was there...on foot,fortunately,I never drive in Manhattan.But even on foot it's a nightmare.

Good luck,LA....you voted for him,you deal with him!

I’m surprised he just doesn’t rappel down from
the chopper into Clooney’s back yard like he did
in Bin Laden’s compound. /s

Nah, Maury doesn't stutter or whistle his s'es.

But he, his nanny, and his roommate from his Columbia days might make an interesting "Jerry Springer" show.

We do understand, do we not, that our freedoms are curtailed not for National Security or Imminent Danger or even for the President’s protection. He will arrive by helicopter.

No, angelenos will be kept from their own homes FOR THE CONVENIENCE OF CLOONEYS GUESTS and all so our enemy can get more money.

Pretty depressing. The cops and secret service are just there to protect and allow convenience for the Hollywood phonies.

It is Clooney’s private event; why does he get such care from LAPD and people need to make other plans if they live in the area.

Clooney should have made provision to get HIS GUESTS to a location that would not tie up a whole neighborhood and adjacent traffic.

What an ass.

I can see it all now.

The ONE arrives among thousands of flashing cameras.
The red carpet is rolled out for the the goof.
It will be a full out hollyweird event.

The the ONE blesses all his worshipers with his precense.
A hush falls over the crowd and the ONE is about to speak.
He says some imcomprehensible babble and everyone swoons.
Oh yeah, the guests swoon too along with the media.

On the way back to DC, planning his next vacation, he seems to develop a bit of amnesia.
“I told then what? Oh no, I don’t support gay marriage”

Holly wood is about to be punked big time and on live tv.

Heck, you don't need one to vote, right?

And Obozo wanting to be a rock star? Politics is show business for the ugly, so Obozo's right where he belongs!

And our President is taking “heroic” stands on male on male butt sex.

We truly are living in bizzaro world.

I’m praying for the Republic.
