Some 150 guests paid $40,000 a ticket to get into the event, which was held to boost Mr Obama's campaign coffers six months before he asks voters for a second term.

'US President Barack Obama was cheered by Hollywood donors as he spoke of his declaration of support for gay marriage at a record-breaking fundraiser hosted by George Clooney.

"Obviously, yesterday we made some news," said the president, prompting applause from guests at the dinner, which took place on a basketball court at Clooney's Los Angeles home.

Meanwhile it emerged Vice-President Joe Biden apologised to Mr Obama in the Oval Office for voicing his own support for gay marriage before the president.'

Why does the 1% love Obama??????

'Mr. Obama's statement supporting marriage equality for all couples fulfills a longstanding demand of a critical group of donors – the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender community. On Monday, the president is scheduled to appear at a fundraiser in New York sponsored by gay and Latino supporters. On June 6, he heads back to Los Angeles for a LGBT gala, which organizers say quickly exceeded its 700-person limit after the president’s announcement.'

Puzzling.....they cheer BO for what he "said" yet no one grills him on his failure to sign the anti gay bashing in the workplace - something that might have results.
These people are giddy idiots drunk on their money and themselves.

All the new technology helps me to avoid watching our Hollywood disgraces. I have noticed how the British family oriented TV series are far superior in many ways as well as their big screen productions.

George Clooney always reminds me of one of my cousins.Nice to look at but no substance.

Why are they disgraces?You might not like Clooneys movies but there's plenty that do,that's why he commands the big bucks.You got Eva L.acting as Chairman for the Latino group trying to drum up votes for Obama.,from what I've been seeing on tv.most of Hollywood is behind Obama.

At least he's nice to look at. We have posters here that are nothing to look at and completely lack substance. Most of hollywood is behind bambam, huh? Proof positive that the man is a nitwit! And he will still get tens of millions of votes, even if he loses, which, let's hope for change!

at least 30% of my fellow americans are idiots
