Clooney was apparently very drunk and bragging about how Obama was one of his best friends. Clooney sounds like a real A-hole when he’s drunk.

Clooney just embarrasses himself by such ignorant and offensive conduct. But an accomplished man like Steve Wynn has no reason to pay any regard to anything Clooney might say, anyway. Water off a duck’s back...

What an ass….I think if Barack would leave Wynn the fk alone, Wynn wouldn’t say a word about him. That’s the problem Looney——gov won’t leave business people alone.

Would he rather we leave Mr. Obama with a lone a-hole, or a pair of a-holes? Hard to do when he is full of them.

“...fading movie star George Clooney...”
******************************************************************

Precise and accurate. This fading star is a good match for a fading empty suit president.

“Clooney was in Vegas promoting a tequila brand he’s involved with.”

Afterwards Clooney got down on his knees in the bathroom and was heard yelling “Barack ralph, barack ralph, ralph,” into the 0bama altar.

Frankly, if I was George I’d want to drunk off my keester as well. Being a useful-idiot-talentless actor is a tough reality to deal with.

Liberals like George Clooney aren't use to anyone disagreeing with them... their image of a conservatives is insulting at best. Hollywood types don't see them as people entitled to an opinion. And here's a man Wynn - much more successful who's trashing ‘the one’ and Clooney took it personally. All liberals are thin-skinned... Good for Wynn.

The Adolescent President

The rhetorical excesses of Barack Obama.

By George Will

NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE

APRIL 23, 2014

Recently, Barack Obama — a Demosthenes determined to elevate our politics from coarseness to elegance, a Pericles sent to ameliorate our rhetorical impoverishment — spoke at the University of Michigan. He came to that very friendly venue — in 2012, he received 67 percent of the vote in Ann Arbor’s county — after visiting a local sandwich shop, where a muse must have whispered in the presidential ear. Representative Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) had recently released his budget, so Obama expressed his disapproval by calling it, for the benefit of his academic audience, a “meanwich” and a “stinkburger.”

Try to imagine Franklin Roosevelt or Dwight Eisenhower or John Kennedy or Ronald Reagan talking like that. It is unimaginable that those grown-ups would resort to japes that fourth-graders would not consider sufficiently clever for use on a playground.

Anyone who has tried to engage a member of that age cohort in an argument probably recognizes the four basic teenage tropes, which also are the only arrows in Obama’s overrated rhetorical quiver. They were all employed by him last week when he went to the White House briefing room to exclaim, as he is wont to do, about the excellence of the Affordable Care Act.

First came the invocation of a straw man. Celebrating the ACA’s enrollment numbers, Obama, referring to Republicans, charged: “They said nobody would sign up.” Of course, no one said this. Obama often is what political philosopher Kenneth Minogue said of an adversary – “a pyromaniac in a field of straw men.”

Adolescents also try to truncate arguments by saying that nothing remains of any arguments against their arguments.

Regarding the ACA, Obama said the debate is “settled” and “over.” Progressives also say the debate about catastrophic consequences of man-made climate change is “over,” so everyone should pipe down. And they say the debates about the efficacy of universal preschool, and the cost-benefit balance of a minimum-wage increase, are over. Declaring an argument over is so much more restful than engaging with evidence.

A third rhetorical move by argumentative adolescents is to declare that there is nothing to argue about because everything is going along swimmingly. Seven times Obama asserted that the ACA is “working.” That is, however, uninformative because it is ambiguous...

Best Clooney movie was The American.
He didn’t talk much and people shot at him.

“Clooney sounds like a real A-hole when he’s drunk.”

He also sounds like an A-hole when he’s sober.

yes, also his “giving the finger” to all sorts of people he doesn’t agree with

and his refusal to deal with world (or economic) realities, preferring instead to attack straw targets or behave out of purely ideological agendas without respect for the consequences of his actions

childish

I enjoyed Wynn’s comments about Clooney. Apparently when Clooney gets drunk, he considers himself a close personal friend of Barack.

LOL! I heard “Monuments Men” sucked. It’s really too bad. The book is very good. Leave it to cLooney to #### it up. I did like “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” but he didn’t direct that (thank God)

Clue for Clueless Clooney:
When Obama stops lying and destroying the traditional institutions that made this the greatest nation in history we might consider leaving him alone.
Until then the lying commie moron makes himself a target of the wrath of patriotic Americans, as do you, you no-talent ignoramus Obama-apologist.

It will get really ugly if Clooney’s uber smugness collides with Obama’s and the thousands of Prious drivers’ smugness.
