Enthusiasm for president fades in his most liberal base
President Obamas star is fading, even in Hollywood. With less than four weeks until the election, polls are moving in Mitt Romneys direction. So Mr. Obama has had to spend valuable time courting a part of his base that he hasnt had to worry about before: rich celebrities.
After a disastrous showing in the debate, Mr. Obama saw the need to swing through Tinseltown to buck up his supporters. The first stop Sunday was an unusual closed-door, off-the-record meeting for a dozen donors who had maxed out their contributions. Joined by celebrity President Clinton, Mr. Obama spent two hours soothing jagged nerves at DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenbergs house.
Mr. Obama repeated his second-term pitch to 150 people, who paid $25,000 to eat at a chi-chi Wolfgang Puck restaurant with movie star George Clooney, film studio honcho Harvey Weinstein and Oscar host Seth MacFarlane.
This late in the race, wasting time courting celebrities in a solid blue state demonstrates the lack of enthusiasm for Mr. Obamas candidacy. Perhaps he should have asked for a star on Hollywoods Walk of Fame to cement his place in La-La Land.

No he is scamming for retirement bucks
Well, to be fair, he only loves them for their money. Their votes mean next to nothing in a dark blue state like California.
Money isn’t their problem right now. This is a colossal waste of time at this point.
LOL! Probably so, didn’t think of that.
He’s wanting to fund construction of a guesthouse at the Hawaiian estate, perhaps. Book some parties on the lanai, keep Michelle satiated, etc.
Let’s see, which will do me the most good right now, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame or a 2nd Nobel Prize?
This is a colossal waste of time at this point.
Shhhh ... they haven’t figured that out yet.
Id rather see him on an episode of cops
ObamaCon2012: Because all that crazy communism thing is really about power and fame, really. Scammin’ the scammers -from the Chi-town Projects to the swollen heads of DC - for the ultimate in retirements!
And of course, trashing the USA like a Rockstar in a hotel room along the way.
Hope and Change: it was always about you...*wink*
He is not going to lose Hollyweird
Exactly! I would really like to see the faces of Obama's big money Hollywood donors after he loses next month and his donors now realize how they have been scammed.
Obama will lose big in November, which means that every Hollywood donor is in effect throwing his money away.
And maybe that will mean less anti-American cinematic crap coming from Tinseltown. We can dream...
This is Obama’s good bye tour. Last chance to rub elbows with the celebs. He knows he’s going down.
Like you say, we can dream they may start making some entertainment that's worth considering watching but it'll be a miracle if they do.
The country's broke - the Middle East is on fire, Greece is crashing and burning - and Obama wants to play with children? What's next - using Big Bird in Obama ads?
Goin' down like Monica! /sarc>
2008- you couldn't walk 10 feet without seeing some Obama merchandise somewhere. It's all gone now as people curse the Imam every time they fill their gas tank.
