President Obama raises money at home of Sarah Jessica Parker
LA Times ^ | June 14, 2012 | Connie Stewart

Posted on 06/14/2012 11:01:01 PM PDT by Pinkbell

President Obama came to the right person to raise money Thursday night: “Sex and the City” icon Sarah Jessica Parker.

In one memorable episode, she said (as Carrie), “I like my money right where I can see it -- hanging in my closet.”

The president probably would prefer it in his campaign coffers. At the Manhattan home of Parker and her husband, Matthew Broderick, Obama raised about $2 million, with 50 people paying $40,000 each to attend.

Broderick had to work – he’s starring in the Gershwin musical “Nice Work if You Can Get It” on Broadway.

Others in attendance included Meryl Streep, designer Michael Kors and Vogue editor Anna Wintour. First Lady Michelle Obama was there too.

Obama told the crowd he was running for a second term because “our work is not yet done.”

He also wryly remarked that he’s pretty far down on the White House hierarchy -- behind his wife, their two daughters, his mother-in-law and the family dog, Bo.

Echoing an argument he often makes on the campaign trail, Obama said his reelection matchup against presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney presents the American people with a stark decision.

“We’ve got as fundamental a choice this time out than we have had in 30, 40 or 50 years,” he said. “What we are going to have to do is present very clearly to the American people that choice.”

Later, the Obamas headed for a second fundraiser at the Plaza Hotel, where 250 people paid $10,000 each, the campaign said.

The proceeds from both events go to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint committee made up of Obama for America, the Democratic National Committee and several state Democratic parties.

He can't do that, in truth, so he'll have to obfuscate the issues, as we've already seen him start doing.

WE have to continue to get the truth of Obama's policies out to the voters, so that they can make a truly informed choice this time around.

I’m glad that the poor 99% of the American people were able to attend this event.

Shame on the 1% for not contributing to Obama. Oh they did? These were those filthy, not paying enought taxes, rich deadbeats who want dirty water, to drown kids with autism, and to shove grandma over the cliff? NOT

These were the filthy rich liberals and leftists whose hypocrisy is unlimited as is their pocketbooks.

I wonder if they invited any homeless people to attend this affair. How about giving them shelter in their Long Island and Manhattan multi-million dollar mansions and apartment complexes the size of a city block? NOT GONNA HAPPEN. THEY DON”T ASSOCIATE WITH THE WORKING CLASS OR THE REALLY DOWN AND OUT. They use their money to keep their distance from the peasants. Guilt donations, if you will.

What a singularly appropriate phrase.

To be fair, that price *did* include a meal of all the oats and sugar cubes you could eat...

“Friends fear the 45-year-old actress’ health is starting to suffer as her marriage to screen star Matthew Broderick is strained, her weight is plunging and the fragile relationship with her co-stars is near collapse. Friends insist she and husband Matthew, 48, have never really recovered from the scandal over an alleged affair with a 25-year-old woman while Sarah was away filming the first SATC movie,” the tab writes. A source corroborates, saying the two basically live in separate houses and are only together whenever there’s a camera near-by and either has to promote one project or another.

These supporters are useless to America as is Obama .Actors are frivolous brain warped trash.

What is parker’s claim to celebrity ? portraying a horse faced slut among other whores in Sex in the city.

Zer0 may have more interest in meeting Matthew than Sarah.

If another painfully lame SATC movie is what it takes to keep her in the lap of luxury, Sarah will “Have Another.”

Only $2 million? Sarah Jessica Parker could have just donated that to his Super PAC herself and called it a day.

Maybe Ferris Buehler really doesn't like Obama— after all he wasn't there, instead acting in a play with a very appropriate title!

Buehler? Buehler?

“Zer0 may have more interest in meeting Matthew than Sarah”

Given the slant toward “alternative” lifestyles to which 0bama has “evolved” in recent weeks, perhaps he`s fantasizing about such a meeting ...over wine, candles and the sounds of Barbra Streisand. Just the little detail of finding someplace to park the wookie for an hour.

Are you ready to throw - Xp? Anna Wintour joins Jessica
Parker with this fundraiser for BHO. Notice, it’s not held at HER house.

I bet if you surprised Anna, woke her up in the middle of the night, she wouldn’t have the accent.

No, likely the 99% were stuck in a citywide traffic jam due to his Highness’ visit.

I am actually proud to say I’ve never seen one episode of Sex in the City and only one of her movies.

She looks like she could be a John Kerry lovechild..

Continuing my ban of most things Hollywood and “Big TV”

So that accounts for the long face?
$2 million will buy Obama one Superbowl ad.
Trifling amount. He is going to need more,
a lot more money to win this election.

As men age they tend to look more and more like Sean Connery.

And so is Sarah Jessica Parker.

Wonder if the paparazzi got any delish photos of “negroes” out front of that Hollyweird spread, in white tuxedos, parking the cars of the arriving snotty elite who probably couldn’t give two f*rts about 12% true unemployment in America (higher in Black areas), nor disgust with the man they went to pay homage to, who caused it in large part.

That ordinarily would be true except that Obama voters don't mind 0bumble's policies,if they are even aware of them.

The crease in the slacks is not as crisp, the booming reverb is not as echo-laden, the soaring rhetoric is at 50 feet and augering-in, the platitudes are flat, the American People finally are getting it......Although the smarmy snarky elites are still swooning over the mirage, the American People see an Emperor with a bad suit of PR and a worse suit of despicable intentions.....

The True believers will still vote for Obama; that probably represents about 40% of the voters last time around. I'm convinced he got about 10-12% of the vote from a combination of blacks voting for the very first time, just because he was black, whites voting because of 'white guilt', and younger voters who wanted to support the 'cool black guy'.

I think many of that 10-12% will have become disenchanted by Obama's horrid policies, especially those who are now unemployed because of his decisions.
