President Obama turns a N.J. man into a 'Celebrity Magnet'
Northjersey.com ^ | 9/19/10 | Willimam Lamb

Posted on 09/23/2010 2:28:03 PM PDT by newjerseynewsroom

FRANKLIN LAKES — The way Tom Murro tells it, a chance encounter with President Obama on a Martha's Vineyard golf course last summer had a transformative effect on him. Among Tom Murro's high-profile run-ins: President Obama, Natalie Portman, Dustin Hoffman and Kathie Lee Gifford.

Suddenly, the Franklin Lakes father of two became the "Celebrity Magnet," known for an uncanny ability to attract, rub elbows and be photographed with some of the world's most famous people. Last April, Murro folded the mortgage company he had run for two decades and took to chronicling his exploits and conquests online at celebritymagnet.com.

"Some say it's been parlayed," Murro said. "Some say it's the magic of meeting Obama. Some say President Obama has turned an ordinary man into a celebrity magnet. There are many headlines that have been written."

The reality, of course, is more nuanced. But a cursory scan of Murro's website yields plenty of evidence of Murro's good fortune — or hard work — at finding himself at the right place at the right time. There he is posing with Dustin Hoffman, James Gandolfini, Kathie Lee Gifford, Todd Bridges (Willis from "Diff'rent Strokes") and scores of others.

And then, of course, there is Obama, or "Celebrity No. 1," as he is known on Murro's site. Murro and his older daughter Lauren, then 10, had just finished lunch at the Farm Neck Golf Club on Martha's Vineyard one afternoon in August 2009 when they glimpsed the president teeing off. As they walked toward him

Yeah, right. He touched the hem of the Obamessiah’s robe and was transformed.

Sounds like a celeb stalker to me but that’s just profiling.

Conquests? Obama was one of his conquests? So those rumors of his being gay may have just been confirmed.

Some people have quite large collections of autographs, some very valuable. This is just the photo version.

In post #5 I said I was impressed. I wasn't kidding.

In fact, I was so impressed by your post, that I looked at your short but curious posting history.

That history contains 10 posted articles, including this one, but only one reply. Although the 10 articles are linked to different sources, they have a curious common theme, that being this guy Tom Murro

In fact, all of your posts are about Tom Murro. There are two about Tom Murro with Jesse Ventura, one about Tom Murro with Jimmy Carter, four about Tom Murro and Yogi Berra, giving a gift to The Usurper - no wait, make that five (clever obfuscation of the thread titles!) - and of course the seven threads that are not about Jesse Ventura all center in one way or another around Tom Murro and The Usurper to the Presidency.

One of your articles is even written by Tom Murro himself

. I notice (in an amazing stroke of serendipity) that Tom Murro is from New Jersey, and - By Golly Gosh! - that's where ~you~ are from.

Isn't that an amazing coincidence?

Just on the off chance that you happen to meet Tom Murro yourself someday (do you think you're a big enough celebrity to do that?) please tell him for all of us here at FreeRepublic that we don't want to shake either of his hands, but most especially the one he's got on The Usurper's butt.

Well, he does look like kinda sissy boyish.

Stalkers suck. This Obama-loving Murro creep needs a good smack across the face to snap him out of this Obowma butt-kissing mode he's in. Seriously, how can any sane man worship a Marxist, USA-hating, homosexual like Obowma.

Looks like a rump pirate to me too. Look what I found on the little feller's web site:

His collection of celebrity photos is quite impressive, including several candid photos of President Barack Obama, all of which he assures us are the real deal. As Tom tells it, "Yes the photo is real... we met him on Martha's Vineyard one on one all thanks to our friend Spike Lee vouching for us with the Secret Service, the president was cool and gracious, I almost passed out! What an honor. My wife was was so mad that she didn't make the trip with us...oh well maybe next time."

I wonder if little twinkletoes had to change his panties after swooning for Zero?

Spike Lee vouching for us with the Secret Service,

So this racist POS has that much pull with the SS?

Way different SS than we had back when we had a real President.

I'd rather get my photo taken with Jeffery Dahmer when he was alive than Odinga anyway. Dahmer didn't ruin anywhere near as many lives as the kenyan klown has just so far.

Agreed.

Maybe Spike, Zero and Murra played (golf?) as a threesome. LOL

I always suspected that Spike was a queer.

"Last April, Murro folded the mortgage company he had run for two decades and took to chronicling his exploits and conquests online at celebritymagnet.com."

After running this through our NewSpeak translator from Orwellbama Enterprises, we have determined that the statement above actually means:

"Murro's business has gone belly-up and he is now a stalker/blogger and writes about himself in the third person."
