    I’m not an American. I would really like to know why so many celebrities hang out with Obama? It’s like Oprah is always there, celebs are always there and the Obama’s are on night shows alot. Do average citizen ever get to go to the white house or meet the president?


    George Clooney is a friggen idiot.

  • notyourfriend

  • loveObama

    bahha – your hobby must be Obama stalking.

    Get off this entertainment site, and go back to Fox News.

    Amy – President Reagan was an actor, and had a lot of Hollywood friends drop by the White House. The Bushes hung out with sport stars, and country singers. Politicians from both parties have appeared on talk shows.

    The bigger question is where is his girlfriend? Stacy Keibler was playing in Greece and has been for a couple of weeks. Have they split? George has always been political so no surprise he is helping out.

    I would like to know why is the President of the United states is having fund raisers overseas???

  • emma

    If i was american i’d have a hard time voting for anyone – but honestly, all the actor endorsements obama gets turns me off. I mean, is beyonce going to help him out when he has a meeting with Putin? no!

    So what would the point be for someone to raise money for a United States of America president in another country? Why is it even legal to take such funds?

    It’s funny that the IRS has very strict rules and regulations as to what you do with your money but it appears when your donating to presidential campaigns it’s a free-for-all.

    What’s next, Barack Obama campaigning in China for president of the united states?

    Its time to worry about starting a family with someone decent Mr. Clooney.

  • lolo


    …because everyone who doesn’t like obama must be a racist…
    you’re so dumb!

    @amy: What’s your point? LOL

  • Adrian

    @amy…..hollywood celebs are govt. tools by extension. If you don’t support Obama you have no career and if you are a big star speaking out aginst his policies, you start losing good roles…same goes for well known News reporters.

    That guy looks like “the most interesting man in the world” from the tequila commercials.

    This “entertainment” site is the one posting political items associated with entertainers. Therefore, political comments are appropriate.

    Americans living overseas are allowed to make donations to US presidential races.

  • pay back

    ο Κλούνει μοιάζει σαν θίτσα!!!

  • Davida Rochelle

    The fundraiser was for Americans living overseas. You had to have a US Passport to donate. Romney has billionaire friends contributing, as well as entertainers. What’s wrong if Obama does too? Kudos to Clooney to support Pres Obama. Republicans would rather see a woman die than get an abortion. They want to get rid of school lunch programs for the poor. Say goodbye to Social Security as we know it. Say hello to war in Iran, instead of peaceful diplomacy. GOBAMA 2012.

    Obama!!! :D but wait this is Just Jared not a political website…


    Does not matter. Obama is the better choice. Romney is buying his way, and that is why it is very important for Obama to win over Romney. The Presidency cannot and shoud never be bought!
