More Obama pandering to the Euro? Looks like it.

Hollywood Megastar To Host Fundraiser For Obama


Academy award winning actor George Clooney is set to host a fundraiser for Barack Obama in Switzerland next month.

The event, taking place on the evening of September 2 in Geneva, Switzerland will be split into two parts: a reception and a dinner. According to Obama’s National Finance Committee, tickets for the reception where Clooney will speak are going for $1,000, followed by a dinner at the home of NFC member Charles Adams for $10,000 a plate. Space for the dinner is limited to 75 guests.


Why does one of Obama's National Finance Committee members own a house in Switzerland? Has Obama set up campaign offices in Europe also?

Found some info on Charles Adams.

Obama tied to lobbyists, but boasts of not taking money

Also, look at all the Hogan & Hartson donations on this page to U.S. politicians and the DNC. Looks like there's quite a bit of Swiss influence left of the aisle.

So, it looks like Charles is a lobbyist from Switzerland that's now on Obama's National Finance Committee. Notice it doesn't specify which nation, though.

Why is he having a fund raiser in Europe? Probably not too many people there registered to vote in the US.

Just Obama showing how much he cares about the common man in America. You know, the guy that couldn't afford to attend such a function.

I have the same question in my mind. Why not in the U.S.? How can Obama or any politician accept funds raised in another country?

You really think him or any politician really cares about us common folk?

Too bad. I'll have to add Clooney to my list of celebrities I no longer like. This campaigning/fundraising oversees is alarming and makes me even more certain Obama is dangerous for America.

You're right. It's not just Obama.

The Academy Award winning actor officially endorsed Obama early last year calling him a ‘rock star.’

A fund raiser in Switzerland to raise money for the Rock Star. Sounds unbelievable. How many nails does Obama has left for his coffin. He can thank Batboy, I mean Clooney for driving in one more.
