Susan Sarandon leveled an explosive charge against the government yesterday when she claimed that not only had her phones been tapped, but that she was denied entry to the White House.
During a Q&A at the Tribeca Film Festival, Sarandon made both claims when asked by an audience member if she believed herself to be under government surveillance. Sarandon was taking questions alongside director Michael Moore, who speculated that he was likely watched at one point or another.
Sarandon, who won a Best Actress Oscar for her performance in “Dead Man Walking,” has long been a highly visible activist for a wide range of left-wing causes, from the anti-war movement to gay rights. Her and former partner Tim Robbins were common fixtures at a variety of protests, and supported politicians such as Ralph Nader and John Edwards. Sarandon said that despite this, she did not know what in her record was severe enough to keep her out of the Obama White House.
No comment from the White House just yet, which, in Sarandon’s absence, will have to settle for the company of minor celebrities as Mick Jagger and George Clooney.

Notice how they keep saying "White House" and the "Government" They never say the name "Obama" in all of this. If this was a Republican President, his name would be dropping from their comments with every sentence.
I think this is the first time James or I has ever been considered an Obama apologist. Thanks for the laugh!
"she did not know what in her record was severe enough to keep her out of the Obama White House."
And if you have any proof that President Obama is personally responsible for keeping Susan Sarandon out of the White House, please send it our way. We would love the scoop.
