Obamas Erect Glass Pavillion on White House Lawn for Lavish State Dinner

They Party in High Style While Millions of Americans Face Hard Times!

Is the White House just not good enough for the Obamas? Why else would they erect a glass "tent" on the White House lawn for what has to be one of the most expensive state dinners of all time?

A large tent was erected for the State Dinner on the South Lawn of the White House November 24, 2009 in Washington, D.C. President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama hosted their first State Dinner for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur of India.

What, they don’t have a room in the White House big enough to contain Obama’s ego?

Maybe the WH banquet hall is not big enough for all the Hollywood celebs the party was really for?

Good pictures, it looks quite pretty, not the circus tent I originally envisioned.

Wish I could spend other people’s money that way!

Will that charge be on my next month’s visa bill or will it just be added to my taxes this year?

Wonder how many carbon credits the MESSIAH had to buy to heat this circus tent with gagazillions of propane.

What "most expensive" category does Mr. and Mrs. Zero not own? I think they blew away the most expensive campaign, most expensive inauguration, most expensive clutch, more expensive sneakers, most expensve date, most expensive jeans, and most expensive dress.

Someone on the news said "tents" were traditional for Indian occasions, but even if that's true, so what? Wouldn't the Indian PM and his wife like to see what's traditional for an American president?

This administration is completely incompetent, embarrassing and lacking in any kind of class.

Indeed, under the guise of “US protocol,” you know, much like the “US protocol” when the ‘messiah’ bows to foreign leaders.

2010 and 2012 can not come soon enough.

It’s really pathetic how the mainstream media is frying to outdo each other to cover this event. Obama is not the first President to hold a state dinner, and I don’t recall any of past dinners being covered with the fanfare or hoopla that this one has.

In a way, I kinda feel sorry for the Indian Prime Minister and his wife — having to spend an evening with this insufferable jerk.

Maybe the tent had to be see-thru so Obama could have a s many pictures taken of him as possible from all different angles. We all know he loves the spotlight.

Lavish dining in a large, opulently decorated tent is a millenia-old Muslim tradition.

Yup the cost of this has to be many times the cost of inviting fewer hot guests and using the WH facilities.

But he’s an actor himself and depends on Hollywood (and MSM) stars for support.

Come to think of it, I bet lots of high-level teacher’s union folk were there, the thousands of instances of kids singing 0bama’s praise has to be sourced somewhere.

Obama is racist. He didn’t want Indian people in “his” house so he built a tent in the backyard.
