(The Washington Examiner) -- Reelections are busy times for a chief executive, and President Obama’s last 24 hours have been unusually jam-packed, but one made easier by his best constituencies: movie stars, young immigrants and gay activists.
Obama didn’t return to the White House Friday morning until nearly 2 a.m. after attending two star-studded New York City fundraisers, including a stop at “Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker’s home where supporters paid $40,000 each and the Plaza Hotel where Mariah Carey sang and attendees paid $10,000 each.
Today, to the applause of labor unions, he planned to grant immunity to law-abiding children of illegal immigrants. That could essentially legalize 800,000 in a community that he is trying to woo in his reelection.
And before traveling to Chicago this afternoon, he is hosting a Gay Pride event at the White House where he will be cheered for his recent endorsement of same-sex marriage. At the LGBT Pride reception, he will be pressed to sign an executive order to end workplace discrimination based on sexual preferences, the so-called Employment Non-Discrimination Act.
