Obama’s most recent Los Angeles fundraiser, with big names like Will Smith “in an elegant three-piece suit” (thanks to Capitalism), Magic Johnson, Hilary Duff and husband and wife, Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas were exercises in adoration for our president. Griffith and Banderas opened their home for a second fundraiser and lined the sidewalk with rose petals and votive candles.(swooning). Obama says the 2012 campaign will not be as “sexy” as his 2008 campaign, but the man never gives up…walking a pathway of rose petals, raking in the dough on both wealthy coasts, and married to Michelle Obama – now that’s sexy. Right?
The Griffith-Banderas event was the first Latino fundraiser for Obama’s candidacy, with donors giving at least $5,000 per person to attend. It featured guests such as actress Eva Longoria, comedian George Lopez, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, and mayors Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles and Julian Castro of San Antonio.
Overhauling immigration [amnesty] was the focus of the rose petal fundraiser. Holding babies was the focus of working the crowd. No photos though while strolling through the rose petals in Hollywood’s rarified air. The Lonely Conservative has more.
