Obama showed us how much he and his supporters are Limousine Socialists last week when the President made headlines at George Clooney's house for a fundraiser (1) that sucked in a staggering $15 million for his reelection efforts. The star-studded backyard party brought in a campaign haul believed to be the largest ever in one night.
