Skip to comments.Obama Raises $15 Mil at Clooney's, Says Sometimes He Forgets About the Recession

RUSH: Obama is at the Clooney fundraiser last night, where, by the way, the story on that is, the original expectation was ten million. That's what they were gonna raise. But then, our brave, courageous president went out there and said that he thinks the states ought to determine gay marriage, and that gay people should be able to get married. Lo and behold, the floodgates opened, and an additional five million was raised at the Clooney fundraiser. I'm not believing that either. The whole thing is a crock. They got 15 from the get-go.
ou got Obama in Clooney's house, the tickets have been sold, but they want us to believe that there's all this newfound enthusiasm in Hollywood where he was lagging behind a little bit. There was some distrust, some disappointment, some people simply didn't have that confidence. But then Obama came out and he said, "I think the states ought to determine whether or not gay people get married." For some reason that got another five million. While he was there, if this isn't in every Romney ad from now 'til November, somebody needs to be fired. Obama said, quote, "Sometimes I forget" the "magnitude" of the recession. "Sometimes I forget" the "magnitude" of the recession. Is it cool to be out of touch? That's what he said.
RUSH: "Sometimes I forget" the "magnitude" of the recession. He said it just before the Hollywood extravaganza. He says this just before he hops on Air Force One. He says this after living in the White House for three-and-a-half years, after partying nonstop, after vacationing, after golfing as if he was a retired lottery winner in the Kennedy family. He says, "Sometimes I forget" the "magnitude" of the recession.
Obama Sometimes I Forget
Remember when George H. W. Bush was raked over the coals 'cause he didn't know what a supermarket scanner was? Well, you don't remember that, Rachel, because you were not even out of the womb then. But back in 1990, '91, George H. W. Bush went to a grocery store, he's president, he'd never seen a supermarket scanner. He said, "What's that?" They showed him and he said, "Wow, that's really cool." And they dumped all over him. Presidents go to grocery stores every day, right? The usual question, "Mr. President, do you know what the price of milk is?" "Uhhhh, no." Obama: "Sometimes I forget" the "magnitude" of the recession.
Sometimes I forget. And you know what? The left is gonna look at this as highly sensitive. This is a guy who's in touch. He has the courage to admit he knows how tough it is for people out there. Yes siree, Bob. Before his Hollywood extravaganza, $15 million raised with George Clooney, gets on Air Force One, has lived in the White House three-and-a-half years, parties nonstop, vacations and golf. "Sometimes I forget" the "magnitude" of the recession. After the stimulus bill. After all the jobs bills he claims to have cared about.
RUSH: We got it. Grab audio sound bite number 16. Last night in Seattle... Da-da-da... No. Wherever he was in California last night. Anyway, this is Obama at a campaign event. Listen. Here it is...
OBAMA: It was a house of cards, and it collapsed in the most-destructive, worst crisis that we've seen since the Great Depression. Sometimes people forget the magnitude of it, you know? Sometimes I forget. Eight hundred thousand lost their jobs in the month that I took office, and it was tough.
RUSH: "Sometimes I forget" the "magnitude" of the recession. He says that as though he wants credit. He was in Seattle. He's forgotten to cut the national debt in half in his first term like he said he was gonna do. So after all the partying -- after all the times on Air Force One, after all of the jobs bills, after all the stimulus -- his administration has been focused on bringing the economy back, has it not? According to him?
According to him, the whole reason he was there has been to revitalize the US economy for people. And he says, "Sometimes I forget" the "magnitude" of the recession? He wants credit for this? I never forget it. I can't get it out of my mind! I bet most Americans have not forgotten "the magnitude" of the recession. He's also forgotten to create jobs.
I don’t forget. They just layed off some people in my office this week.
If I was jetting around, taking vacations, playing golf, flying in a pizza chef from Chicago and eating expensive steaks....
“The Great Gay Payback”
Sarah in las vegas/SALT conference!....
Can you imagine the firestorm if W had said something like that?
Doesn’t sound like Zero is focused...... uh... like a laser.
What if they lied about how much they took in...
lefty’s lying is almost a given..
Does anyone know how much the taxpayers are paying for this campaign trip? On "Fox & Friends" they quoted a figure of $1 million. I suppose they worked in some supposedly non-partisan photo-op into the schedule to pretend that the trip as a whole was on public business.
There is nothing nonpartisan with this arrogant, lazy, lying pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave
OMG, I don’t even want to think about it. The SRM would run with it night and day for month
Clooney’s like “O M Geee!”
I’m looking for a complete guest list. I want to add to my “Do not watch” list.
I was just looking for that, same reason.
And he calls conservatives elitists? I never forget it, as I drive past foreclosed businesses and homes up for public auction every day I drive to work.
He’s not any different then all the other rats who accuse conservatives of the wrong doing the progressives are doing
The 2012 Ohahas are using the 2008 Anita (Mao) Dunn strategy to manipulate voters, to downplay Ohaha's destructive policies ....and his scary plans for the next term. Dunn has said THEY and only THEY decided what the media should know about 2008 candidate Ohaha. The strategy is already in place. "Don't worry--we're harmless" is Hollywood's fave scenario.
Obama's open mic slip in Russia revealed his hidden agenda. He didnt say "after the election, or after the next election. He said: This is my last election" ....... reassuring the Ruskis that he'll then have "more flexibility after the election....
Clearly Ohaha's certainty WRT staying in offce is not based on his approval ratings or massive opposition to his cockamamie polices----mandated healthcare, trillion dollar stimulus, using aborted babies' brains in lab experiments, giving himself massive executive power over Americans, co-opting religious beliefs, $4-Plus gas, 16% real unemployment, trillion dollardeficits, escalating inflation at the supermarket, the GSA spending scandal......to name a few.
No. Ohaha's certainty stems from his knowledge that he will stay in office---not by the will of the people---but by buying his reelection, using unprecedented vote fraud.
FIRST AND FOREMOST----WE MUST ATTACK THE MASSIVE
VOTER FRAUD OHAHA INTENDS TO USE TO GET REELECTED.
Remember, voter fraud is the Chi/mobs' specialty---do NOT underestimate Rahm and Axelrod (both running O's reelection), and Valerie whatsherface in the WH.
Let us not forget----the minute they hit the WH, the Chi/mob went into action: the WH Chi/mob took over the census---and now have all the CV they need to file phony FEC reports using stolen federal dollars as campaign contributions.
Do not underestimate the wealth of cash the Ohahas/Chi-mob can come up with to rig the election......remember, these are the kingpins of corrupt Chicago politics. At one time, conscientious FEC investigators verified money was coming from legal citizens....but if Obama wins there will be no investigations. Remember, there are billions unaccounted for in Obama's stimulus packages (probably used in the last election cycle).....you can be sure the Ohaha kingpins have tons of money stashed away for 2012.
POINTS TO PONDER
<><> author Dean Koontz estimates there's about $90 billion missing from the US Treasury.
<><> Ohaha's ex-COS Chi/Mayor Rahm Emanuel is running the reelection campaign----b/c this Wall Street turd knows where all the money is hidden. Rahm also controlled all US Treasury assets (at Obama's behest) when he was COS.
<><>The Ohahas took control of the census upon taking office----they have all the necessary CV to phony up contribution reports for the FEC.
WATCH FOR PHONY FEC REPORTS The Ohaha's "say" they added $45 million to reelection coffers in February.....raised jointly by the DNC, "Obama for America" and two other joint fundraising committees the "Obama Victory Fund" and the "Swing State Victory Fund,"...and whatever other voter frauds they dream up.
REFERENCE Ohaha had two major pieces of legislation which were supposed to fuel his reelection: (1) the trillion dollar stimulus which bombed, and, (2) the healthcare mandate which could soon be kaputski or partially disemboweled by the USSC.
Not only have Ohaha's signture acts failed, the MO is to destroy the country. Ohaha's got a plan----he knows exactly what he is doing and he is calculatedly changing/destroying our Constitutional Republic.
” Not only have Ohaha’s signture acts failed, the MO is to destroy the country. Ohaha’s got a plan——he knows exactly what he is doing and he is calculatedly changing/destroying our Constitutional Republic.”
BJ room.... LoL...........
Probably Ohaha brought chick-with-the itch——Sandra Fluck——along to Clooney’s bash-—dangling technicolor condoms in front of the pripaic Hollywierdo crowd.
Who can know the depths of the corruption...
The Clintoons just displayed the fringe of it...
The Journalists may be worse than the HollyWeirdos..
Academia is ripe with some nasty stuff as well..
Obama may be just punishment for all of it..
If I need a “reminder” all I have to do is look at my !@#$%^ wallet!
