Obama turns to Hollywood for re-election help

Updated

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker is the latest celebrity to fundraise for President Barack Obama.

Appearing in an ad, which debuted during the MTV Movie Awards, the “Sex and the City” actress said “The guy who ended the war in Iraq, the guy who says you should be able to marry anyone you want and the guy who created 4 million new jobs, that guy – President Obama and Michelle are coming to my house for dinner on June 14 and I want you to be there too.”

Parker urged the audience to go to joinobama.com to enter for a chance to win a ticket to the fundraise  “because we need him and he needs us.” The ad was shown during the timeslot to appeal to a younger audience.

Joining Parker in her crusade to get people to support President Barack Obama, longtime “Vogue” editor Anna Wintour also appeared in a Web ad asking people to enter for a chance to win two seats at that dinner.

“The timing might be a little off,” said Joe Scarborough, given the juxtaposition of a dismal Friday jobs report and the Hollywood fundraiser being such a 1 percent event.
