In another effort to change the subject from Obamacare, President Obama Tuesday gave a big wet kiss to Hollywood and his fundraising pal Jeffrey Katzenberg of the Dreamworks studio for the entertainment industry's global influence.
For the second day running, President Obama is staged to meet with notable Hollywood celebrities and elites and ask for money for the Democratic Party.
The dream meeting between President Obama and the glittering kingpins of Hollywood on Tuesday has been billed as "the entertainment summit." It's more like the star-studded finale to a fundraising extravaganza, with the word "Obamacare" stricken from the script. It will mark the seventh moneymaking event in a mere 48 hours for the seemingly tireless president.
With his popularity sinking and his faulty health-care law endangering Democratic candidates, President Obama will head out of Washington Sunday to show he's still an asset to his party — by raising campaign money
Has America become hopelessly tacky thanks to reality TV, celebrity gossip, baby daddies, tattoos and trailer parks? Someone has at last sounded a tasteful alarm about a trend that has permeated just about everything, including politics.
When it comes to late-night comedy shows, President Obama is a prolific guest, but taxpayers might not be laughing along with him.
President Obama had a quiet and unannounced dinner Tuesday night with DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, a mega-donor whose studio has been under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Stars such as Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are arriving at the Hollywood and Highland Center in Los Angeles to pay homage to four industry heavyweights.
The honorary Oscar winners at the 4th annual Governors Awards include a stuntman who broke 56 bones during his performing career, a documentarian who has made movies for six decades, the founder of the American Film Institute and a philanthropist who has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for arts, education and health-related causes.
The founders of the studio behind "Shrek," "Madagascar" and "Kung Fu Panda" are donating $90 million to a Hollywood charity that offers support to seniors and health services for members of the entertainment industry.
For Democrats, much of the money to fund the big-ticket national races this year is coming from donors in Hollywood and Chicago, while Republicans are relying — to a lesser extent — on cash from supporters in greater Houston and Fairfield, Conn., a geographical analysis of campaign contributions shows.
President Obama's star is fading, even in Hollywood. With less than four weeks until the election, polls are moving in Mitt Romney's direction.
DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc., the movie studio behind "Kung Fu Panda" and "Madagascar," said Monday that its films will be distributed by 20th Century Fox starting next year.
"The website's continually working better so check it out," he said.
"Mostly, all I did was pick up the phone and ask you," Katzenberg said as he accepted his award. "It's you who did it. You who gave of your time, your talent, your money, your hearts. Because that's what you do. That is what Hollywood does."
