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.

Catering King    

Unfortunately Georgy Boy, you won't be at Spago where Wolfgang's food was considered great 15 years ago - it's a catered event and that takes a specialist. There's a reason you only hear about the food the day before the Oscars when the press are dying to fill their air time with something "interesting" The food will be mediocre, the service will be worse and everyone will be fine with that because "it isn't about the food" But, if by chance it turns out the meal is decent, just think how much better it could have been with a relevant and specialized catering company at the helm. And, don't forget - this is our President's 125th re-election fund raiser since taking office. That is more that Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton and Bush COMBINED! Either he's really smart or they were really dumb - or maybe the others felt the best way to solidify another term was by staying in Washington and earning it. Oh well, at least we'll have another excuse for being stuck in traffic this Friday.

WOW the Democrat Mega Millionaire Fund Raiser will Raise a record of $ 14,000,000 Million dollars. It sounds like the Democrats are the Party of the Rich receiving political favors .
(read blogger's comment below).

"" There are Many (analysts, researchers,etc.) that say the Historic Nature of this President was Exploited by the Leftist Democrats to Pass the 1st ever National Health and Financial Bills, Consolidating Power , Allocations of Finance to Leftist companies/Bank/Media, Etc, because the Democrats before them (Bill Clinton to (even) Democrat Woodrow Wilson 1912-) could Not get that done.

It appears that Hollywood and Many Media Outlets are firmly Collective to the DNC party line and to achieve More Hollywood/Media Freedom there needs to be a Alternative Hollywood/Media that would accept all opinions for the Individual good (gun rights, gay rights, individual rights, creative rights, non political rights, etc.).

George likes the boys clubs, has to pay people to be around him. He treats women awful and gets away with it. Write a check George to the gov. instead of having a fake party to keep your name in the news. You have made millions off the public, and now your telling them to go eat cake. Shame on you!

Yeah...Who is the elite now barry? $40k for a gay marriage fest sounds a lot like a group of elitist jerks and jags getting together to see just how important they are and do it just because they can tell their less fortunate brethren what the "party" was like....

But oh yeah, liberal elites do not "hang out" or have friends who are, shall we say, financially challenged! Oh, the hypocrisy of the tali-man president!
