Nothing quite so good. All you get is a stand up presidential impersonator.

And who paid for the Mayor's tickets to the Democratic party. Were they just admission tickets at 3500 or sponsors tickets are 30,000?

Will our corrupt mayor report them as gifts or will they just disappear down the rat hole where Mayor Lives.

They make a great pair the failure Mayor and the failure president.

Events like this are not paid by tax dollars. The travel costs are paid by campaign funds. All modern presidents have done this without taxpayer money.

Republican/Democrat politicians do this and that's how the game is played.

Concerned about the economy? He essentially just freed $1 million from bank accounts to be spent on the economy (hotel, overtime for police, media spending).

But most of you don't care because you have no tolerance for Democrats.

I agree! What a putz....how much money did he cost in work hours and police support by coming here? To do what? A stupid $1 mil fundraiser? Just by doing this, he proved he has absolutely NO idea what goes on in this country. I hope he never comes here again...what a total moron. Oh, and better arrangements than flying into LAX, then taking a helicopted to Brentwood, then taking a care to Beverly Hills, then another car to Hancock Park couldn't have been made? Hmm, let me think...every hotel has a helipad...hmm...
Way to leave your path of destruction across the entire Westside you moron.

I have the legal right to stop traffic and inconvenience motorists wherever I go.

I have no opinion as to whether it is right or appropriate to do so.

Sure, I could have dropped in nearby on a helicopter. But then, no one would really notice.

When are people finally going to realize that Obama is a Mulsim/Socialist? Look at the evidence of Obama's background...him listening to Jeremiah Wright spouting hate speech in his "church" for over twenty years. Ever since he took office he has repeatedly ignored the will of the American people. He is nothing more than a soundbite for the Muslim nation. Case in point. His comments at a Ramadan dinner on Friday about the Ground Zero Mosque says everything about him. What President in their right mind has a state dinner for Ramadan that is broadcast back to the Muslims nations? Hey Obama, quit trying to sooth the hurt feelings of the world's Muslims, and start worrying about doing your job. You, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi have systematically destroyed this country. Be a real American, which I doubt you and your pain in the ass wife are, and start making America first!
This is remarkable drivel, from a porous mind. Look at the evidence, the writer says again and again, then offers none. Paranoia = fear with no evidence of danger.

The doctrines of Karl Marx and his associate Friedrich Engels on economics, politics, and society. They included the notion of economic determinism, political and social structures are determined by the economic conditions of people. Marxism calls for a classless society in which all means of production are commonly owned ( communism), a system to be reached as an inevitable result of the struggle between the leaders of capitalism and the workers. This is not practiced by President Obama and his Administration. Read to show yourself knowledgeable.

All you freaks should NEVER FORGET what a total loss Geroge Bush was. He bankrupted the country with unfunded wars and tax cuts. No matter how hard you try you will never be able to paint Obama with the same brush. Again, Bush was a failure and stupid to boot. Crub your dogma!

I wouldn't mind if Obama never came back here. I also wouldn't mind if our Mayor left with Obama and never came back. And I wouldn't mind if all who voted for Obama, and still dwell in darkness, followed him and never came back.

30k per each Hollywood Elite to talk about the Common Working Folks with the president. Like any of them have a clue what being a hard working american citizen even is.

Babs was a co-host and didn't even show up for the party.

I've been boycotting Hollywood for a long time - Don't go to the movies, not because I can't afford to, but because I refuse to put money in liberal Hollywood hands.

Fred...Fred...Fred.. Get your Thinking Cap On! Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, his mentors. They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. A Machiavellian game plan to turn the U.S. into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival...and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not??? They have no responsibility to pay for it.
Obama is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos--thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.

I suggest to you to get your head out of the sand educate yourself on where our country is headed, if not, then...I feel sorry for you.
