    I didn't watch the Oscars so don't really care whether she went or not. It doesn't really surprise me since the Obama's are known for pandering to Hollywood.

    I'm not sure how hosting a successful fundraising event in Hollywood makes one "pandering" to Hollywood. Can you explain, Gloria?

    2. To cater to the lower tastes and desires of others or exploit their weaknesses:

    Yep. As always the Republicans have NEVER had fundraisers with celebrities ever. Whatever. This was so predictable.

    Ha Ha ya I can probably count the number of Republican Hollywood actors on on hand. Is this something new that Hollywood is Democrat? Wierd I thought everyone knew that.

    40 Celebrities Who Are Republicans.

    Not all Hollywood is Democrat. Just like not all of Massachusetts isn't Democrat but we lean heavily towards the left.

    Republicans have had plenty of interaction with Hollywood including fundraisers.

    I just hate that even a simple fluff debate has to turn political. Why could you not just say..no I don't like that she was part of the Oscars and let it go there? Why does it always have to be a negative comment? Holy crud.

    I don't understand what you mean. Do you mean that Obama is catering to the desires of Hollywood by allowing an actor to fundraise on his behalf?
    Or that Hollywood is exploiting Obamas weaknesses by fundraising on his behalf?

    On that token, who do the Republicans "pander" to? Just rich old white guys? Is that any different or better?

    The desperation to take a shot at Obama is just pathetic.
    Spacers and blather like this.

    I totally am a Republican, but I am going to turn sides for just a moment and say think of Ragan and Arnold Schwarzenegger
