Skip to comments.Obama Celebrity Fundraiser Barrage Worries Some in Hollywood
Posted on 06/22/2012 6:31:26 AM PDT by Innovative
Some of the president's most ardent entertainment industry supporters quietly tell The Hollywood Reporter that while they realize he needs to deploy all of his weapons to compete with deep-pocketed Republican super PACs, they fear the increasing reliance on stars and celebrity contests could backfire with swing voters and mobilize the right.
Reaction was particularly strong to the $40,000-a-plate dinner co-hosted June 14 by Sarah Jessica Parker and Vogue editor Anna Wintour with guests including Meryl Streep, Aretha Franklin and Bravo's Andy Cohen. Critics say the tony, heavily promoted eventÂ -- Parker sent an e-mail to supporters promising the evening would be "fabulous," and Wintour posted a video online urging supporters to enter a lottery for two tickets -- risked creating the impression of an elitist, out-of-touch candidate in a period of ongoing distress and growing economic inequality.
"It's a mistake," a veteran Hollywood exec says flatly of the event, which the Drudge Report headlined "Checks in the City." The exec adds: "He's supposed to be a man of the people, and he's hanging out with Anna Wintour? Is he trying to turn the election into a celebrity reality show?"

Leftist celebs love rubbing elbows with democrat presidents. It show how “important and connected” they are. Democrat presidents love rubbing elbows with leftist celebs because they basically worship them. It is a circle that feeds on itself. While they are participating in the love fest, the rest of the people see how foolish they look.
In January 2013 Baraq will begin his next career.
A two hour weeknight show on MSNBC from 8 to 10.
Of course with vacations, golf, etc he’ll actually use guest hosts 60% of the time.
” - - - Obama is clearly out of touch - - - “
Not so! Obama has been consistently effective at hoping to change America into an European-style Feudal/Socialist State in the World Ultimate Socialist States, commonly known as WUSS.
Regulate, Control, Destroy!
BTW, will Michael Moore gain the rights to film the Hollywood glitterati’s tribute to Obama at the Democrat’s 2012 National Convention? Or maybe just filming the Hollywood glitterati PAYING their monetary tribute to their Emperor Obama?

An impression? Really?
The entire Left is out of touch. I recommend they stay there for another 6 months. Reality will hit them hard in November.
OMG — I could see Obama having a show on MSNBC.
It does make you wonder, what are his plans after Jan. 20, 2013. Michelle Obama will get her wish to walk out of the White House, and just keep on going. Where will they go and what will they do.
Financially, he could be set for life. Bill Clinton raked in tens of millions in speaking fees after leaving the White House. Obama might make a lucrative career giving speeches as well.
I would love to be in such a speech. Would like to hear the Q and A. I wonder who or what Obama would blame for his failed presidency, when such questions come up from his audiences.
Flush the turd.
To have to ask the question is to answer it.
That is exactly what he has done from day one. Obummer is always making sure the presidency is about him.
It feeds his narcissism.
Obama could be working secretly to get his own TV show.
It’ll start with a melody, graphics showing several hearts superimposed with the title of the show “I LOVE ME”.
Personally, I’d never vote for anyone who is subsidized by the freak show in Hollyweird. But that’s just me. A lot of voters are star struck by celebrities.
Hollywood doesn’t think Barry Obama is an “out of touch elitist,” they’re merely worried he APPEARS to be an out of touch elitist and the “good times” are going to come to an end.
Sorta reminds me of Prince Prospero in Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death”.
obama is not out of touch. He’s just an arrogant piece of crap who thinks he’s better than everyone else. And that goes for all of the Hollywood fat cat actors and all the “above the line” egotistical _______(fill in the blank).
Or the “The Devil and Daniel Webster”!
It already IS a reality show! Keeping up with Barack Hussein Kardashian. Where have these people been?
