Obama raising Hollywood cash on heels of gay marriage endorsement
Fox News ^ | 5/10/2012 | Fox News

Posted on 05/10/2012 9:23:30 AM PDT by tobyhill

President Obama and his aides claim they're just not sure how his endorsement of same-sex marriage will play politically.

But his campaign is pushing awfully hard to make sure it plays well.

The campaign, within hours of Obama's interview in which he declared for the first time his support for gay marriage, blasted out a fundraising email to supporters. At dawn on Thursday, the campaign released a web video highlighting the president's new-found stance and lambasting likely GOP opponent Mitt Romney's opposition to gay marriage.

Now the president is preparing to head to a sold-out fundraiser Thursday evening at George Clooney's home in Los Angeles -- where he is sure to be embraced by well-heeled celebrity donors.

Hollywood is home to some of the most high-profile backers of gay marriage and the 150 donors who are paying $40,000 to attend Clooney's dinner Thursday night will no doubt feel newly invigorated by Obama's watershed announcement the day before.

Useful tools. I don’t think much is thought of Hollywooders in Marxist land. If 0 is elected for four more years, he will be the only “star” and they will merely be hunk’n tax treats. Quit going to movies because they have mostly sucked for years and now I am having problems watching TV programs. I wish I liked to read:-(

“No movies for me”

You’ve got that right. I can’t stand these morons, and there aren’t any good movies, anyway.

He gave the Gays very little for their money. Obama said he personally supports them but left the decision on Gay marriage to the States. Gays have only a gesture from the President.

The Gays had to pay him. If they failed to do so they would have lost political influence and made enemies on the left.

What does that say about Romney, that Obama felt the gay vote was in jeopardy?

It would be interesting to know how many of George Clooney’s Obama guests are gay. Perhaps now all of them will come out of the closet so that America can know who they are. Sounds like John Travolta might have a legal battle on his hands..Hope those charges aren’t true. Feel very sorry for his wife.

Wonder if the Producers in Hollywood-—the ones who are still “free” and walking around, sodomizing boys like they did the two Corey’s —are sitting at his table.

Notice the press goes after the Catholic Church priests that did far less than have homosexual orgies where boys were passed around-—yet, no outrage because secretly they hate the Catholic Theology which still condemns the sick, dysfunction behavior and won’t condone sodomy in writing, like Hollywood constantly does to normalize the behavior for children. Their lawyers are fighting to get Sandusky off—the APA is rampantly trying to make “intergenerational sex” legal and the courts are trying to make child porn legal. It is the insanity that occurs when you state lies like Homosexuality is natural and a right. There is no “Right” to a dysfunctional, sick urge which uses human beings in such a degrading manner.

Hollywood sold their souls to Satan decades ago....in fact, many of them were atheist/communists from the earliest days. They now push dysfunction and immorality on our children in most of their productions to destroy and collapse our system of government. They push values that are the opposite of the Christian Ethics in such movies as “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

Virtue is necessary for all free, civil societies as noted by our Founding Fathers and even the ancient Greeks. Machiavelli stated that Virtue is necessary especially in militaries......which is why zero eliminated DADT—to force the reeducation of Christians and force their accepting the pagan/Marxist/atheist belief: Sodomy is good. With the promotion of “Evil is Good” in the military-—all standards will be eliminated which promote truth and goodness. Our military will implode—go the way mercenary and atheist militaries (Stalin’s, Lenin’s, Mao’s, Hitler’s and Pot’s.....which kill their own citizens.)

Hitler’s most brutal arm of the military were his homosexual SA troops. He placed pederasts in control of the Hitler Youth and Rohm and others used the boys in their sexual orgies—much like the immoral Hollywood Producers.

Tell Jerry Brown to arrest the Producers and save the boys, instead of trying to make little 4 year old boys believe the sodomy is “good” in public education brainwashing schemes.

Obama was worried about Gay money, not Gay votes. Gay numbers are trivial overall and in the areas where they are most numerous Obama will win easily, like in NY or CA.

to come out like that due to him wanting their money shows how desperate and how bad their campaign is in.

I thought the other day we had no chance of winning but now after him pandering to the queers and Hollywood in order to get their money and after talking to blacks and Hispanics here in FL then I have now a lot of confidence we will win.

Thank you Hollywood and the homosexual fanatics you lot have just shown blacks , muslims hispanics that the rich people are more important now only if the GOP does not blow this.

Also anytime we hear or see marriage equality then we need to send mail or call them out i.e. to Megyn kelly shep smith etc as equality should now mean men having 6 wives .

we cannot let them say equality and ignore other kinds of marriage

WOW thought all on here know about Kelly from FOX and her pro pro cross dressing pro homo views.

Megyn Kelly is known to be pro homo and pro cross dressers, she has made it clear she has friends in both areas and has been to parties and events with them.

She was the one who helped to get Sally Kohn or Khon a job at FOX, it was her who introduced The radical lesbian to FOX.

Kelly is nothing but an air head who has said and had pro homosexual comments and even gone as far as attacking the shrink on her show because he dared to say in his article it is harmful to children to see cross dressers like that one on dancers with stars

Obama was just making sure they would give him wads of cash.

Obama needs to pull the convention out of Charlotte and move it to Hollywood - or San Francisco. I’d be more interesting to watch...

just watch the show, just because she’s decent looking and might fool the guy who has never had a decent looking woman does not take away her stance which has been noted on here many times on pro homo pro cross dressing or her bringing on the Soros stooge or even introducing her on her show to FOX or even saying welcome it’s good to see you are now with FOX .

Hell the air head even had Khon on her show on Friday.

After many many conversations on here and elsewhere I’d have thought that all of us on here knew about her or homo pro cross dressing views.

BTW sorry I did not get back to you earlier but I have no computer and have to borrow here and there.

you think what ever you want but if you wanted to frigging find out and watch the airhead and actually look around on here then you will see she is pro homo pro cross dressing.

You made the claim. Back it up with facts. For instance, if as you say in post 19.

"..She was the one who helped to get Sally Kohn or Khon a job at FOX, it was her who introduced The radical lesbian to FOX..."

There should be some information on the net to that effect. I searched and did not find any.

then looking harder and watch her shows, she said various comments and has said she introduced her on her show, that is if you can actually get past drooling.

As for the claim, get real, you can either go with it or not but if you think I am going to spend time going through her shows when it is known off many on here how pro homo and cross dressing she is then you have another thing coming.

Hell she had her Soros turd stooge homo activist on Friday, she brought on the shrink Ablow or hablow on her show just to attack him because he wrote an article which said kids should not watch the cross dresser on dancing with stars as it would hurt them, what’s that you want proof, then go and find it seeing as you are so hooked up about the airhead
