May 11, 2012 Obama Shoots Hoops with Clooney, Maguire
RENO, Nev. After a night of hobnobbing with Hollywoods rich and famous, President Obama hit the basketball court this morning for a friendly face-off with actors George Clooney and Tobey Maguire and members of the White House staff, officials said.
The game took place inside the Cheviot Hills Recreation Center at the Rancho Park Golf Course in Los Angeles just miles from the Beverly Hilton where Obama spent the night. Cameras were not allowed inside. Who won the game? shouted CBS Mark Knoller as the president shook hands with supporters along a ropeline at his next stop, Reno, Nev.
Obama momentarily recoiled, asking What basketball game? What are you talking about?
Then the president recalled with a smile, As you might, expect George and I won, but I think we are all winners because nobody got hurt. (In a November 2010 game of hoops, the president required 12 stitches on his lip after being struck by a wayward elbow.)

I doubt ABC News realizes that a growing number of viewers see them as the US version of Pravda.
It really is not surprising that Obama raised $15 million dollars in one night in Hollywood. You have a vapid man pretending to be a leader being feted by shallow, uneducated people who make their living pretending to be someone else. Its perfectly natural for Hollywood to embrace Obama as a kindred soul. A transcript of Obama’s speech to his benefactors has not been released but its a safe bet that there was no mention of obscene profits.
“Who won the game?”
Who gives a sh-t?
The world is going to hell in a hand basket and this clown is shooting hoops. I guess Soros is still in control. Good to know.
Gee. I heard it took him 8 shots to make a basket during the Easter Egg Roll.
The biggest disappointment for me was the information that Robert Downey Jr. went to that Obama worship fest...
I had understood Robert had an epiphany after 9/11 and realized the liberal philosophy was not good for America.
I guess he has been drawn in by the Hollywood mindset again...
Hobnobbing with the hated 1% - who suddenly are perfectly respectable when they start giving him money.....
obama is probably promising Hollywood that once he’s re-elected he’ll put a cap on taxes on “entertainment income”
I dont want a cool president. I want the stern,non smiling person who has a disdain for Hollywood type.
Like Calvin Coolidge. Or maybe Ike....
Cool people has to bend to the whims of people or else they risk losing their cool Status.
