Watching the "throne" is one thing, but Jay-Z asked 99 of his best buds to cough up forty grand EACH to keep the "king" seated!

The rap mogul and his wife Beyoncé agreed to host a campaign fundraiser to re-elect President Obama next week in NYC!

One hundred guests are donating $40,000 each at Jay's 40/40 Club — HOV sure likes 40s, eh? — to dine and schmooze with not only the Perezident of the U.S. but also the King and Queen of Hip-Hop!

Wowzers!! That's four million dollars!!

Combine that with the $12k-per-pop photo opportunities Obamerz scheduled for earlier that day and his trip to the Big Apple should provide a hefty boost to his war chest!

We wonder why the Prez doesn't visit NYC more often? For that kind of scrill we would always keep an empire state of mind!!

    So if they are donating $40,000 each for a total of $4 million what does the $400k in the title refer too? Hooray for celebrities and their money..

    Obama panders to the celebs because he needs their money. People are not giving to him this time like they did last.

    He can raise as much as he wants but he is still going to lose.

    No one wants that loser in the white house again.

    Conservatives mad because their falling behind in times. Eventually America will accept gays, women rights more etc. I bet Obama will win again too. EAT IT.

    Funny. I thought Obummer stole from the rich to give to the poor. The rich are givin' to him! BUt I thought rich folks were BAD? Could it be some who have actually EARNED success should be able to spend it as they please? Oh, that's right- rich and conservative-bad. Rich and liberal-GOOD.

    Re: rachel – Rachel you got it right!

    Another thing the left likes to do is say that the Conservatives are Wall Street, rich, ellite, private jet owners who have made their millions off the backs of the poor AND then next breath they are saying Conservatives are dumb, hill billies, white trash who all live in trailers and do nothing but read their bibles.

    They love to spin it according to what point they are trying to make.

    Politicians have to raise funds. That is part of the process. Stop that, stop running adds and making appearances and then you really let the 1% take over because they will be the only ones to vote or have any clue what the issues are… These adds are aimed at the 99% — don't get it twisted.

    These glasses (the pair Beyonce is wearing) are so ugly, but yet everyone keeps wearing similar ones. Yuck! They don't look cool at all.

    Re: LiberalsMakeMeSick – I like what he stands for and frankly since I don't own a horse and buggy and like being able to speak in my own Church, have control over my own body and not giving my hard earned cash to corporations so that they can outsource jobs to other countries I am going to vote for Obama. Mitt stands for nothing except keeping his money in his own pocket.

    Re: trevor garfield – I don't think you understand how important this matter is to those of us who descend from Jews. Who's families came here to the US to escape death and extermination in their former countries. The US has always been a friend to Israel because they believed the promise that God will bless those who bless Israel and God will curse those who curse Israel. Obama will be on Letterman and going to a party at Jay Z's house instead of meeting with Netanyahu even after all the attacks on our embassy's in Syria and Libya.Our Ambassador was murdered and sodomized and you think conservatives are upset over gay rights and women's rights? Do you not realize that we are in worried about Israel and another war. Please understand this is way beyond liberal and conservative. I had no problem with Obama appearing on Jimmy Fallon's show. But we are facing a crisis now and it's not appropriate. What about the rights of Jew's to a homeland. What about the rights of an Ambassador to be save in his own embassy. Look past liberal, conservative, rich and poor to the real problem. We have a President who doesn't understand the priority is to be President and to do what he can to keep peace. He did get the Nobel Peace Prize after all, not an Emmy.

    The President does understand all about Israel and the many pressing issues here at home. Unfortunately he also understands that if he doesn't get re-elected he can talk to whatever world leader and it will be for naught. Practicality has to take precedence now and if you think Mitt would be better then I think you need to think again.
