Man of the people: Pointing and snickering at Obama’s pimping of George Clooney
President Obama’s oh-so-humble “I am your bucket list” offer for a chance to dine with him and George Clooney isn’t going over so well.
Obama's latest fundraising email subject line strikes me as a sitcom pitch: Clooney & Me. #wackymisadventures

If I get one more of these stupid Obama/Clooney emails…

So, for only a $3 donation I can win dinner with Clooney and Obama? Good. I can try a few "Obama ate dog" jokes out on them.

The Clooney-Obama stuff seems a bit tone deaf to me > http://t.co/hwOpY0Te

I get it, Barack Obama.You're going to Clooney's house in a few weeks.

Obama is really doing an aggressive humble brag about his upcoming lunch with George Clooney, eh?

latest Obama campaign email: "I'll be going to a special event at George Clooney's house in a few weeks…" #manofthepeople

Obama is a man of the “one percent” people. I mean, he and Michelle live a “fearsomely expensive” lifestyle and all. The stress it must cause him! How will Michelle get the latest Louis Vuitton purse?
Contemplating violence if the Obama campaign doesn't stop bugging me about George Clooney.

Shorter Obama: Sure everybody's on food stamps, but look, it's Clooney! #tcot

If the Obama Campaign sends me 1 more email about George Clooney, I swear I'll vote for @BuddyRoemer…

Obama fundraising on chance to meet George Clooney is an admission that meeting Obama is no longer worth $3 to his donors.
— Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) April 24, 2012
Exactly. That’s why he is pulling this stunt; donations are down. Cash strapped? Pimp out the White House using the swoony to some lure of Clooney.
“With big checks no longer flowing as quickly into his campaign, Mr. Obama is leaning harder on his grass-roots supporters, whose small contributions make up well over half of the money he raised through the end of March, according to reports filed Friday with the Federal Election Commission.”
Suck it up and cough up the dough, rubes.
PARTAY RT @RyanLizza: In case you haven't received the tweets, emails, and texts, GEORGE CLOONEY IS HOSTING A PARTY FOR OBAMA.

Read the emails. Obama is throwing a party at Clooney's house, and he's bringing the Secret Service so you KNOW it's going to be a rager.

Worth the $3.00 for that alone?
Party like a Secret Service agent is the new party like a rock star.
