Obama Fundraiser

Wolfgang Puck To Sling

EXCLUSIVE

When you're as famous as George Clooney, throwing a mega-fundraiser for someone as famous as the leader of the free world, you want a caterer as famous as Wolfgang Puck.

TMZ has learned ... the Spago impresario has been hired to feed the 150 people who are each shelling out $40,000 to rub elbows with Obama at George Clooney's house this Thursday.

Our sources say Wolfgang and company have signed a confidentiality agreement and have been told in no uncertain terms to treat the event as top secret. 

We're told there will be a special menu -- not the standard Wolfgang catering -- and, as one source put it, "The food is going to be a lot better than the Oscars" -- Wolfgang caters the Governor's Ball that follows the academy awards.

For the repubs that watch Faux News, they all do this stuff. The repub god, Reagan, and his wife were lavished with money, gifts, and expensive real estate. Do you think he got rich in his little D list acting career? btw, I am not particularly an Obama fan, my wife & I both supported and still wish for Hillary Clinton for prez, one of the smartest people in the world and someone who actually gives a sh^t about Americans. Too bad the freaking media had to sandbag her in their adoration for Obama. Still, I'd take Obama over the repubs. I'm not going to support someone who wants to tell my daughter what she can and cannot do. or isn't for real equal rights for everyone. If you get the repubs, you get the whackjob Christian right mixed in with the running of the country. Look at all the crackpot laws they're passing or trying to pass all around the country. Religious leaders, run your churches, you have no right running everyone elses lives. As for George, he has as much right to support whom he wants as any other American.

Let me get this right, it is fine to eat dog's, as long as you don't fight them.

George is a guy that puts his money where his mouth is. I am happy to see a celebrity to use his fame (and money) to bring to light the causes he believes in.
People need to equal all the PACs that the GOPs have.
I believe this is George's mission. People not corporations.

Why can't they just get some big sandwiches and a couple kegs of beer? Oh yeah, they are the 1% -- they don't do kegs and sandwiches. Long live the elected monarchy! Fools, sure he's fighting for the poor...hahaha

I question Prez Obama and George Clooney's judgement in only one area. That is picking Wolfgang Puck to cater it. HIS FOOD SUCKS. I went and foolishly purchased one of his frozen pizza's at Kroger's thinking that because he is a "gourmet chef" and it was pricey that it would be good. IT WASN'T. Not only did I waste 6 dollars for a dime size pizza ( was 8 but had a coupon) but it tasted like wet frigging cardboard. I should have ate the packaging instead it probably would have had more flavor. A penny size dollop of sauce, sprinkling of cheese and that was pretty much it. I payed for his NAME not his food. Will NEVER do that again. Should have stayed with the cheap frozen Kroger pizza.
A person can starve to death eating his food.

They are spending forty grand and kissing up. They can't be on the same planet as us. Our jobs have gone over seas, companies out of business. They don't count the people who are not on unemployment anymore and have the nerve to say the unemployment rate has gone down. Neighborhoods that look like ghost towns from closing up shop. People have gone into foreclosure and lost their homes. Talks about everyone should have a good college education and yet schools have been closed up and teachers lost their jobs. Kids having such big loans that they will not be able to pay them off if they worked their entire life. Hospital closings and not enough doctors to take care of all patients. Gas prices sky high that we can't go on vacation and heat our homes.. What world do these rich people live in. Certainly not the real world.

SHAME ON George Clooney!!!!!

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."
-- George Washington

I would like to know what part of this statement Our current Leader(s) DO NOT UNDERSTAND?

Part 2. Ben Stein was right on with these words.
The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in a poke in 2008. (Pig in a poke means: an offering or deal that is foolishly accepted without being examined first. A poke means sack.)

They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.

They ignored his anti-white writings in his books.

They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes by his minister, Jeremiah Wright.

They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a student.

They ignored his ultra-left record as a "community organizer," Illinois state legislator, and Senator.

The American people ignored his total zero of an academic record as a student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being touted as a scholar.

Now, the American people are starting to wake up to the truth. Barack Obama is a super likeable super leftist, and not a fan of this country.

Let's just hope it's not an encore of the horrible version of vichyssoise he tried to pass off at the Oscar gala.
