Pitt, Jolie pay Obama a visit

(CNN) – A big slice of Hollywood came to the White House Wednesday when President Obama greeted Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in the Oval Office.

For a brief moment the White House press corps was transformed into a pack of paparazzi as the star couple was spotted through the Oval Office windows during a previously unannounced visit with the president.

    Further PROOF that not all millionaires are selfish greedy pigs like Willard would like you believe Obama portrays them as. Now as far as how I feel about movie stars...., I could care less about them.

    Any one who has head, will vote for Obama. He stands for Middle-Class. GOP is for Rich, Corporate, Greed, and Oil.

    Barack Obama or any other president doesn't have the cojones to turn away any Israeli head of state. Get your facts right.

    My my my your moniker is appropriate. Do you really need to be reminded that Obama has been offering meetings, going to meetings and even demanding meetings with GOP/Teatroll leadership for the entire time he's been in office and yet it is the GOP/Teatroll leadership that manufactures a stalemate and then leaves the negotiating table in the midst of a puerile temper tantrum almost every time? Boehner did it, Cantor did it, even GOPers in special committee's with the Dems in Conrgess did it. It's not Obama who's failing to meet and negotiate. Not even close.

    I'd imagine the Hollywood actors were reasonably pleasant and left on good terms with him. The congressional GOP leaders, conversely, have made it quite clear that they cannot and will not cooperate with him on even the most benign points of order. I'd hang out with actors too.

    You GOP'ers, have very short memories. Not invited are you kidding! Refused to go, refused the invite!
    What's # 1 on your to do list, creating jobs- NO, stemming the loss of jobs- NO, trying to help maintain
    the middle class where (the 95%) YOU live- NO. You are so preoccupied with Obama, you are willing
    to cut your nose off to spite your face.The party of NO,NO,NO,. You can't see the forest for the TREE.
    The election slogan was more appropriate than I ever imagined ... YES ... WE ... CAN ... !
