(CNN) - Actor George Clooney paid a visit to the White House on Tuesday to meet with President Barack Obama and discuss his recent trip to southern Sudan.
Joining Clooney in the Oval Office meeting was Enough Project Co-Founder John Prendergast, who joined him outside of the West Wing after the meeting to talk to press.
Clooney said, "I think we're very impressed with how involved, at the highest level, this administration is and now our job is to try and continue to keep it in the press and keep it, to keep the light turned on for the next 90 days while we try and broker a peace deal, which is what they're working on right now."
The actor was heading to Capitol Hill to meet with Republican Indiana Sen. Dick Lugar, the ranking Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Why not meet with Clooney? His opinion will carry as much weight/intelligence with the President as many of the recently-departed cabinet/advisor/staff members.
Oh great, the Prez has the ear of celebrity but not that of the people. No wonder all his promises have gone to the dogs.
Hollywood engaging in high level talks with the WH...I did not know that they were filming a Dumb and Dumber 2???
Can someone PLEASE remind Obama he's the President of The United States of America nad not some reality show wanna-be......please!!
Clooney - because Obama hasn't got a Clue... !!!
But neither has Clooney or anyone else on the left.
A bunch of clueless wonders if ever there was.....
Thanks George Clooney for drawing attention to Sudan. Only great people with great minds go out of their way to show humane containment under difficult circumstances. You remind me of the great minds that helped tackle Haitian problems recently like Anderson Cooper and volunteer crews from all over the world. I am glad you were welcomed at the White House. You spoke with a very humane,transparent and forthright World leader-Barack Obama. Your wishes for Sudan will be realized.
I'm sorry, who is George Clooney? Oh yes, he some liberal nut actor. Why is he poking his know nothing nose around the White House and why is anyone listening? Unbelievable!
Hooray for President Obama taking time out of his busy campaigning schedule to meet with Hollywood elite!
Thank you, Mr. Clooney, for using your celebrity to keep the focus on the Sudan. People around the world appreciate your efforts!
While I applaud Mr. Clooney's involvment in good causes, I always struggle to understand why people believe that Hollywood-types are worth listening to on any topic off the big screen. While Mr. Clooney and his ilk are superb actors, I don't see the connection between acting and the level of intelligence needed to accomplish tasks like brokering a peace deal in Sudan. Mr. Obama would be wise to spend more time with real-life experts than those who play them in movies.
This is how the country is being run – in between golf games, parties, vacations, meeting with the Hollywood idiots....unbelievable.
Actors really need to get a grip. This is not the movies George, we cant support every loser in the world. Its survival of the fittest. Their own Government don't care about these people, why should we?? Wake up and deal with the problems we have here at home. These actors truly are idiots.....
Who cares about "Clooney"? He's a typical leftist. The man typifiies the moniker "empty headed actor". He's traveling to the Sudan for what? Just to show how the left lick the boots of the Commander in Chief? Like any good Sudannese would be impressed? About the only ones who care about this, would be other Holly Wierd actors looking for a little press in the international media, desperately trying to find fame. We the PEOPLE, are not at all impressed, or even engaged with him or the "Dear Leader".
Um, so, what will happen? We engage in preventative wars, raping the lands of foreign countries. Why stop another entity from doing the same?
I guess Cloney wanted Obama to know the conditions in the old continent. Does Obama have nothing else to do that is more importnat than meet with george cloone? Disgusting use of time. Totally incompetent to lead, just to campaign.
Just one more liberal talking to a socialist--is this really news?????
Why cant these Idiot Liberal movie starts simply stick with making movies
The world can rest easy now. Clooney and Obama to the rescue!!! (complete with sarcastic eye rollling)
Great now we have an actor that thinks he's a politician who wants to talk to our president who thinks he's a star.
Clooney is a man who has lived his entire adult life pretending to be someone else, and getting paid for his delusions. What possibly could he have to say that would have any bearing on anything?
George Clooney is a pretty good actor..
but who cares what he thinks of politics or policy?
Is this Obama's finest adviser???
What are his credentials?
Probably better than Obama's, to be sure, but still worthless. Really.
Who could possibly care what an actor does in the political realm? Clooney is a loser. Always has been. Always will be.
just another reason to reject deomocrats.
Clooney is good at speaking lines and following directions that somebody else wrote...come to think of it, so is Mr. Obama. I guess George and Barrack have more in common than I thought...
Maybe Clooney could explain to Obama how our economy works.
