Speaking to a crowd of Hollywood executives, some celebrities and local business leaders in Los Angeles, President Obama asked his supporters to "hang in there." His speech was delivered Monday at a fundraiser that may have raised as much as $2 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"It's gotten tough. ... Here’s the thing, I never promised you easy. If you wanted easy you would not have campaigned for Barrack Hussein Obama," Obama said. "But what I said was if you are willing to stick with me, hang in there, I was positive we could achieve our dreams. America has been through tougher times."
A handful of notables attended the event, including Danny DeVito, Jack Black, will.i.am, Eva Longoria and Jamie Foxx.
