George Clooney raises $15 million for obama

Wow!

We're used to George Clooney making big money at the box office, but his fundraiser for Barack Obama just made a record amount of money!

Even though we were expecting the actor to raise a record-setting $12 million for the president's campaign, he made WAY MORE!

The total is in and according to co-host Jeffrey Katzenberg, the $40,000-per-guest dinner raised “a record nearly $15 million.”

Congrats on the HUGE return, George!

Now you can basically do whatever you want in this country because Obama has to have your back after that generous donation!

    Amazing people are praising this, when I find this appalling!! This money could put towards research for Aids, build schools, rebuild inner cities, help out a town that is going broke etc. NO!!! They are going to give it to one man to go after his job!! He shouldnt need this to win if he is that great at his job!!!!! These people are now on my scumbag list! Towns & cities are broke and these scumbags give this money to a lying worthless piece of shit who DOES NOT care about the GAYS!!! It is a political move you stupid puppets…. This is GROSS at the highest level for the American people!! He shouldnt need this kind of money to win or is really winning when its all over or is he buying his way back into the White house!!

    Oh GC is SOOOOO worried about starving children! Yeah Right….15 million to keep Obama in office to continue droning children. I'm sure a little of that 15 million would have fed those hungry children GC loves to be photographed with in far away lands. What a bunch of rich hollywood hycoprites! They are sickening!

    Obama: "Sometimes I forget the magnitude of the recession."
    -
    OBAMA HAS A BAD WEEK dropping back 7 POINTS
    in Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll, in the three-day rolling average.



  11. 11

    Hey there, Obama and Hollywood!
    -
    We won't forget who brought the magnitude of this hell on America and who keeps trying to get you reeelected to do even more damage.
    -
    Even Obama can't come up with a reason to rehire him.
    -
    Have fun on your jets you movie stars, while we don't show up for your movies and buy your music.

    Obama is THE WORST PRESIDENT we've ever had!!!! He has not done shit for America except fuck it up!!! Why are people so memorized by him!!!!!????

    Obama's recent stance on gay marriage has brought back many of the Hollywood libs, along with their $$$
    But I do think this can all fall apart very quickly, when you add Israel into the mix
    (Israel comes before Obama)
    If Netanyahu feels that Obama has not kept his word , he could very easily turn the
    Hoolywood money train around and believe me BeBe knows exactly the power he now has, and the time frame he has to work within

    I'm absolutely loving the Obama hate on here! Keep up the hate, Americans. Only a few more months until the most inexperienced, incompetent and divisive president in history is back in dirty Chicago where he belongs. Barry, please let the door kick you and your fat wife on the way out :)



  15. 15

    The home of the 1%er's is Hollywood! Obama is just another typical politician and a disappointment to all those that thought he was anything else.

    I have come to this website for many years and this is the FIRST comment and it will plain and simple

    *All you people are sitting here complaining but before you do that maybe you should LEARN how to SPELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you want to have a voice maybe you should be able to spell it out. #Idiots

    Re: luvs2hustle – Hum… Bush "brought the magnitude of this hell on America", not Obama. America was in deep shit when Obama came into office. And Republicans did all they could to prevent him from solving the problems. You may hate the guy all you want, but PLEASE read books, get your facts straight, stop listening to FOX News.



  18. 18

    Re: overthere – Don't complain about Fox go read the history books…the facts are there if YOU are willing to listen and stop the blaming game. Unfortunately, there will always be someone to blame for your failures (or in this case, Obama's).
    Past President Reagan inherited a recession and turned this country around and created a tremendous economic boom doing exactly the opposite of Obama. What…? Fact! And while you are at it, check out Rev. Wayne Perryman's lawsuit againt Obama/Democrats for their revisionist view of history. Read, think, analyze, and remember that history cannot be changed no matter how much you wish it so!
    Time to change your view…history and facts don't lie!



  19. 19

    Yeah, let's raise money to re-elect the weak Obama. He bailed out Wallstreet, with OUR money, and let the soulless bankers have it without any conditions or strings. And what did the bankers do? They didn't lend the money to consumers, and they gave themselves big fat bonuses, to reward themselves for failing. Oh, and they also had nothing but contempt for Obama, because like I said, they are soulless!



  20. 20

    Hollywood is the highest form of political hypocrisy in this country…they donate their big $$$ to a president like Obama, yet they are the exact stereotype of the 1% for which they claim to protest for. If it wasn't for the free capitalist society in this country than they wouldn't even have been able to earn that $ in the first place. And how do they even begin to pretend to relate to the middle class?? HYPOCRITES. ALL OF THEM!

    I thought all he cared about was Darfur and his endless parade of, cough cough "girlfriends". Obama had my vote in the last election because of three promises he made. (1)to get us out of the warS in Iraq and Afghanistan (2)create a health care system with a safety net for all Americans (3)change the tax structure so that the richest Americans pay more. He has done NONE of the above, and will not get my vote a second time. A President cannot care if people like him, he has to make the necessary changes that make the country better, and cannot care if he is elected to a second term!

    Re: Somepplarestupid
    Great speller with nothing to say about what is going on this country! Wow!! Glad to see you wrote for the first time on this topic! Sorta makes you not look as smart as you think you are just because you know how to spell!! I just stood up and started clapping for ya! Now why dont you come get your trophy…



  23. 23

    Got to agree with Kappuh, he got my vote the last time, but you know what they say about "fooled me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me"

    Re: carolskey – Actually the economic 'reforms' that Reagan brought in are directly linked to this Global Financial Crisis. His period as president was the start of some of the massive deregulation on the finance industry. This GFC didn't occur out of the blue when Obama came to power, it has been festering for 20-30 years. You may have read the history books, but you misinterpreted the facts. It isn't Obama's fault, it isn't the democrats fault, it isn't the republicans fault. It is the fault of politicians on both sides and the big business operators who have their ear. Please keep telling people they don't know the facts and that they have a revisionist view of history, you are showing your true intelligence in the process. Nothing is more revisionist than blaming every single problem on one man alone.



  25. 25

    Re: me – But Obama made promises that he didn't keep. And he has turned out to be a big business sell-out!



  26. 26

    Re: Somepplarestupid – U SAVED UR one comment eva to tell everyone to learn how to spell i think see a psychiatrist asap

    Obama, cares more about being a celeb than running a country. Whats even sadder and worse is hollywood and major actors like this basically have a lot of power and can most certainly get votes.

    It's sad that people treat celebs like their tears cure cancer. The second a president can actually achieve creating a bandwagon huge celebs jump on. It's a done deal. Sad. SAD.



  29. 29

    It's amusing to me how a hypocritical man (obama) says that Mitt Romney is rich and out of touch but yet it seems he looks his most comfortable with the rich and famous.
