Streisand and Jeffrey Katzenberg were no-shows at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser.....billed as co-hosts w/ Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams. Notables included Judd Apatow, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and Reps. Howard Berman, Brad Sherman, Judy Chu and Laura Richardson. The price to be a co-host was $30,400 per couple, which included a photo with Obama though POTUS said photo ops weren't the point of the evening. "I hope you understand why we're here tonight,'' said Obama. "It's not to take a picture with the president. We're here to make sure those who took the tough votes are rewarded."
We’re here to make sure those who took the tough votes are rewarded
I believe there is a quote from the time of the English Civil War in which an member of Parliament scoffs, "Well, if a member of parliament cannot become rich by holding the office, then I fail to see the purpose of the office."
What’s the reward? The opportunity to look stupid yet again?
Streisand and Katzenberg are both, though nominally I suspect, Jewish....and this is right after Zero made his remarks about the mosque..just wondering.
If 0bama loses Babs he is done....addios!
Give the loon-O-dent some time.
Pretty soon the libnuts will pay that amount to NOT have a picture of them with him.
Zero forcing Hollywood to reward Dems’ ObamaCare vote.
The only picture I would like to be in with mac daddy is waving good bye to him as he is being locked in a prison cell for life.
F#ck’em, just so they sent their money. The slimes stream media just wants the horse race of how much money DumBO can raise.
I hope their absence was deliberate but it could also have been they got stuck in traffic
“...right after Zero made his remarks about the mosque..just wondering...”
That thought crossed my mind too but a Barbra Steisand Jew is a liberal self-hating Jew and I can’t believe she would do anything other than nod her head in approval of Obama’s Friday remarks.
$30,400 wouldn’t be even 10% of what it would take to make me be in a picture with that kenyan piece of shit!
The Co-hosts were a no-show? That’s embarrassing.
...a practice all too familiar to conservatives voters.
So the bammer misses out on a meeting with Babs. Who’s the winner?
Whoa! This could be HUGE, (not hugh)!
“obamanation cannot tell the truth ... and I believe he no longer knows the truth... everything is subjective to his mental skew”
I hadn’t looked at it that way, but I think you’re on the money. I don’t think the Obama administration believes there is such a thing as truth. It explains a lot.
Also, $1 mill seems a small sum..I seem to recall fundraisers for Bill, and later Hilalry, at simialr Hollywood homes..pulling in several million each..maggie..crack research..can you investigate?
$30,400 per couple. Ahh yes - the party of the working man.
