President Obama held a $35,000-a-plate fundraiser Friday night, gearing up already for his 2012 Presidential run. Several movie stars were in attendance. So, if I may...
First, does it disturb anyone else that, instead of, you know, being President, Mr. Obama is chatting it up with Tom Hanks? With Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, the economy, unemployment, the deficit, the debt, and so on and so forth, it should be pretty alarming that the most important thing the President can think to do is go to Facebook and have dinner.
Second, looks like the President has finally focused on something: getting reelected. Sure, he blew $787,000,000,000 on an unsuccessful "stimulus" package (and then blamed Republicans for spending), but Mr. Obama is really concentrating now. You see, normally if you do a bad job and then don't even bother doing it for a year and a half, you get fired. Since President Obama has never had a real job, he must think that it is all right to shirk your duties. It is not.
Third, instead of having his rich compatriots waste money on him, why not take that $35,000 per plate and hire a person? For $35,000. For an entire year. And more, dozens if not hundreds were in attendance. Take that money and create multiple jobs instead of spending it to try and keep one.
Dude, $1,000,000,000 does not raise itself. Give the poor president a break, he needs to spend the next 2 years doing nothing but raising money (in between vacations and golf games).
Never mind, I just thought better of commenting on
Michelle’s contribution to re-erection; er, election,
Stupid, Useful Idiots. I hope they suffer during the coming troubles.
anybody wanna see the guest list?
But Iam sure he has enough money that my not seeing another Movie of his he will be alright but I will never see another Hanks movie.
Thanks OL Hickory.
“But Iam sure he has enough money that my not seeing another Movie of his he will be alright but I will never see another Hanks movie.”
While I agree that you have the right to never see another Tom Hanks movie, something we can not lose sight of is Tom Hanks has the right to support whoever he wishes for President. I will not boycott a person for their beliefs. My Father in Law is a Yellow Dog Democrat, and I like him very much as a person. Do I get angry and frustrated with him about it? Sure, but at the end of the day it’s what we’re founded on.
Where I will boycott the Hollywood morons is when they decide to make insults against over half of the country. For instance, when Julia Roberts announced that Republicans were found in the dictionary between repugnant, and reptilian. Well this repugnant, reptile will never give her a flippin’ dime.
There are too many of these examples to list, but to my knowledge Mr. Hanks has kept his comments along these lines fairly apolitical. I also know that Hanks, and Steven Speilberg (another lefty, I know) gave us a cinematic treasure like “Saving Private Ryan”. A film that I believe should be required viewing for every child above the age of 15. Also “Band of Brothers”, and “The Pacific” are another two noteworthy pieces of work.
Again, if you choose to never see another Tom Hanks film because he supports Obozo, that is certainly your right, but doesn’t that make us just like the Libs in Hollywood that won’t hire a Tom Selleck, or a Stephen Baldwin, just because they’re Conservative?
