George Clooney: Meeting with Obama at The White House!

George Clooney addresses reporters at the White House on Tuesday (October 12) in Washington, D.C.

The 49-year-old actor and human rights activist John Prendergast filled President Barack Obama in on their recent trip to Sudan.

George is asking for support in preventing violence in Sudan – a referendum election to be held in January could split the largest nation in Africa in two and cause a civil war in the country.

The AP notes that the two were impressed with President Obama‘s knowledge of Sudanese conflict and his intentions to prevent violence.

Shouldnt’ Obama be meeting with economists about the economy, diplomats about the Sudan?

@Cupkin: Yes, George only attracts attention to this problem, but to resolve it will of course the diplomats.

I care if we start a war for oil, but i don’t care if we stop a war for oil.

Yes, indeed, US can get cheaper oil in Sudan. This will be as bonus for the resolving this conflict, which in this case can be handled by diplomacy, it is inexpensive. And this bonus is very attractive thing in the period of elections. And these, from the first sight, material targets can help to save people’s lives, which are doomed without external help. Refugee camps can transform into Concentration camps. George big plus to you, you choose the right time, but don’t go there anymore! Because it is very impudent to land in North Sudan, the territory that is controlled by Janjaweed, to help those whom they decided to annihilate. Janjaweed literally means a gin, and they are mad… You George, riding there on the horse, can turn out from “Sexiest Man Alive” to “Sexiest Man Dead”.

Big Foot, I thought you were about running in the Canadian forests, or at least climbed up the Eiffel Tower! These are two places, from which you can see better what happens in Sudan. Though I understand that it is not that easy for naked Big Foot to climb up the Eifel Tower, but I do not recommend you to hang out there, there everywhere is wind.

@karla: It is extremely impolite statement!! People risks their lives and help others to survive. George you look great, keep doing your best!

George is my hero – not for his good looks and superb acting ability – but just for what he did tonight. He uses his celebrity for something more than self-gratification. He is on my bucket list of people I admire and would like to meet. David Gergen is another of my heroes, having worked in both Republican and Democratic administrations to achieve some good. He would like to serve the American people, not just a party. This world needs more peole like these wonder ful men.
Congratulations to George for what he is doing.

God Bless you George! I just can’t get over how much you’ve done for humanitarian causes. You are truly inspirational. I heard you even went to Egypt and China for Sudan. Don’t you ever get tired? It’s amazing!

Kudos George!

Smart is sexy. What a man!

I saw George discussing the Sudanese crisis on “Larry King” last night. It was an excellent interview. He kept his argument simple, logical, and practical. I think he’s an outstanding advocate for this issue.

Thank you George and John! I hope that you are able to get the support that you need from our government. Good luck with this and God Bless!

There is no way George knows everything about Darfur in order to talk to the president.

@backpain:And George doesn’t speak about such things, and not give any advices. He just states the facts he saw. And any conclusions and decisions will be done by experts. George only attracted attention to this problem, that’s all.

KARLA,
Get lost you and your ****** friend, Angelina. SOOOONNN her breasts will droopand her lips will shrivel and that Brad is so whipped!!!!!

KARLA,

YOU AND YOUR ****** FRIEND ANGELINA WILL SOON HAVE DROOPY BREASTS AND SHRIVELED LIPS.

TAKE IT AND SHOVE IT…..

He wants to use diplomacy to prevent more genocide in Sudan. Diplomacy does not cost anything and is a wise investment. It could not only save the lives of people in south Sudan, but it could well end up preventing international military intervention and/or other types of aid that would cost lives and money. Regardless of what you think of Clooney as a person, his message about Sudan is valid.

@george: Ahahaha George is Amazing man!

George can not change the world and I can not take seriously, I think it’s all part of the PR. You should first find a normal woman and not Elisabeta that constantly exposes his flesh. Shame

@anonimusis: He already found a normal one… he just wants to hang out with not normal for some more

I agree with you #47!

Yes maybe at first sight George looks superficial but this is only a form of external protection, a shell that was formed as a result of vital necessity. When man gets a complete disappointment, when a close person trying to humiliate him mentally and financially, it is quite normal that in future such man may withdraw from the deep relationships, he may not want to have any relationship at all going through such psychic trauma, or may even become a gay but it is not genetically caused, it’s the psychological block that can be liquidated. Therefore, such men, even if there is something wrong with them, are the victims of these women-manipulators. This is pure genocide. George thought that it is pretty enough to be sincere and he would be able to develop such relationship as his parents have, but fate does not always offer an equal partner and first marriage has helped him to understand many things… Then in the future to the real ones man prefers kind of controlled-contract-relationships having a fear of repeating past experience, but at some moment he realizes that paidwoman and paidwife it is something alike, they are almost nothing different, they both product of material area interests. In order for something to happen needed someone from another area of interest and only then it all becomes secure. In fact, George is a truly deep person and he does not have much fun from this kind of life… and sometimes he has very sad eyes…
