Obama to return to Los Angeles in June for star-studded fundraisers
By Jonathan Easley and Amie Parnes - 05/11/12 10:38 AM ET
President Obama's decision to support gay marriage this week is paying off in a big way with the LGBT community in Hollywood.
Obama is expected to attend an LGBT gala in Los Angeles on June 6, where ticket prices range from $1,250 to $25,000 apiece. As part of the same trip, Obama is also expected to attend a fundraiser hosted by Ryan Murphy, the co-creator of the show "Glee," and his fiance David Miller.
Like the fundraising dinner hosted by actor George Clooney on Thursday night in Los Angeles, which raked in $15 million, the dinner is expected to bring in millions of dollars for Obama's reelection campaign. Obama's endorsement of same-sex marriage on Wednesday has prompted a slew of big-dollar donations from the gay community.
Obviously yesterday we made some news," Obama told attendees at Clooney's home on Thursday night. It was a logical extension of what America is supposed to be. It grew directly out of this difference in visions: Are we a country that includes everybody and gives everybody a shot and treats everybody fairly, and is that going to make us stronger? Are we welcoming to immigrants? Are we welcoming to people who arent like us? Does that make us stronger? I believe it does.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the LGBT gala is now seeking a larger venue to meet skyrocketing demand for the event, which could include a performance from singer Pink and reel in a haul of up to $10 million.
The Clooney fundraiser on Thursday night also had big star presence, including Tobey Maguire, Stacy Keibler, Diane Von Furstenberg, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., Salma Hayek, Barbra Streisand, James Brolin and Billy Crystal.
Some on the right have knocked Obama as a celebrity president, and one ad from the American Crossroads super-PAC called Cool wove together clips of the president with various entertainers before asking if voters were better off than they were four years ago.
Sorry Black Pastors. You guys dont have the cash or the power.
Obama will give you a shout out at the next flea market rally.
Are the Obamas able to keep the unspent cash they rake in if/when they lose in November?
Dear lord she was gonna faint, thank you mister. The sixteen broomsticks in her anus were a bit much but the messiah must be protected. I’ll go change my name now...
They aren’t able under law to transfer the funds to their personal accounts, if that’s what you’re asking.
But I believe they can give it to other candidates for political office, if I’m not mistaken.
If not, I’m sure someone will correct me.
Also, their campaign will incur enormous expenses, so whatever they have left will be after spending as much as they can to win.
They arent able under law to transfer the funds to their personal accounts, if thats what youre asking.
. . .
Thanks. Yes, that’s what I was wondering.
Under law being the operative phrase. You can see and read how well that has applied.
That’s why I included “under law” in my comment.
Hollywood is so gay.
Please post a guest list on all fundraisers in make beleive commie land. I want to make it a point as you should to, to boycott these unAmerican un grateful elitists a##wipes who would be no one if it werent for our dollars. Did zero or his criminal element make them super stars? WE DID! Lets umake them!
Matt Drudge of the Drudgereport, had a Sunday evening AM radio talk show for a while.
He used to say the most violent thing you could do in response to media cr@p, was to turn it off.
He was right.
Turn the switch “off”. Simple and effective.
Who the heck cares about Hollyweird.
Turn it off. Turn it off and proudly say why, if anyone asks.
Be stubborn. Be the boss.
Turn off the television.
Why shouldn’t he return, it doesn’t cost him anything. We are paying through the nose to provide him transportation to these things.
The Fruits seem to have plenty of cash, fudge packing must be lucrative.
BUTTHOLES OF THE WORLD UNITE !
No pun intended...............
More gay for pay.
We are now Babylon and we produce profound sickness and disease. We live in a society so sick that most can no longer even recognize how badly they are infected.
Yeah, check this out. Puts the lie to “Biden forced his hand” meme. This merchandise and website wasn’t organized in a day.
His homosexual donors and holly weird said “No more sugar barry unless you show us that you care” It is all about them donchaknow. Something in the make up of their mental illness screams “Look at me!”
Everything this Machiavellian administration does is scripted to a T and designed to cover The One’s” a$$ from every angle.
As it is for heterosexuals lately, "fiance" = "some guy I'm having sex with this week."
