Michelle’s dogs apparently dine on china and crystal
The Daily Caller ^ | Neil Munro

Posted on 02/11/2014 3:59:55 PM PST by Lucky9teen

Poverty and unemployment are at near-record levels, the economy is stalled, and a record 47 million Americans are on food stamps, yet aides for first lady Michelle Obama’s tweeted out a picture of her two dogs apparently dining at a table laid with crystal and china.

“Bone appétit!,” the aides added to the insensitive tweet, using the language of France’s queen Marie Antoinette, who was executed by radicals in 1793.

One dog appears to be wearing a jeweled necklace. The other is wearing a red ribbon.

Obama’s media courtiers applauded the ostentatious display of canine luxury. “Bo And Sunny Obama Get Decked Out For The State Dinner And It’s Pretty Adorable,” says the headline on an article at the Huffington Post.

In 1980, Ronald Reagan’s wife, Nancy, was relentlessly criticized in the press after she ordered a new set of china for the White House during the painful recession created under Democratic President Jimmy Carter.

The china was bought with donated funds, yet it prompted so much media controversy that it was not used until February 1982. “Nancy Reagan’s new china set survived its White House debut intact. Nary a $48 cup was broken,” declared a snarky AP article.

The palace dogs tweet was quickly praised by Obama’s followers.

“So cute! Aww!” said a tweet from Erica.

“OMG SO CUTE,” said Jessica.

Others reactions were jaundiced. “#Boneghazi,” said a tweet from SeaWorldSammy. “Don’t laugh. That will be the @FoxNews headliner tomorrow,” he added.

Talk about income inequality....and this is how they live.

And their state dinner tonight, consists of: White House does know is what will be on the menu for

350 guests served in a tent on the South Lawn

Music by Mary J. Blige

The meal will include quail eggs from Pennsylvania and American Osetra caviar from the president’s adopted home state of Illinois, as well as 12 kinds of potatoes.

The salad course, featuring a “winter garden salad” of what the White House called petite mixed radishes, merlot lettuce and baby carrots inspired by the first lady’s kitchen garden.

The main course will be a dry-aged rib eye of beef, brought in from a family farm in Colorado and topped with blue cheese from Vermont.

For dessert, there will be a chocolate malted cake with bittersweet chocolate from Mr. Obama’s birthplace of Hawaii, accompanied by Florida tangerines and Pennsylvania vanilla ice cream.

There will also be lavender shortbread cookies, fudge from Vermont maple syrup and orange zest-dusted cotton candy.

DY-NO-MITE!!

This “presidency” is such a bad joke, it wouldn’t even qualify as a sitcom.

“’Comrades!’ he cried. ‘You do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples. I dislike them myself. Our sole object in taking these things is to preserve our health. Milk and apples (this has been proved by Science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig. We pigs are brainworkers. The whole management and organisation of this farm depend on us. Day and night we are watching over your welfare. It is for your sake that we drink the milk and eat those apples. Do you know what would happen if we pigs failed in our duty? Jones would come back! Yes, Jones would come back! Surely, comrades,’ cried Squealer almost pleadingly, skipping from side to side and whisking his tail, ‘surely there is no one among you who wants to see Jones come back?’”

When Nancy obtained donated china for the White House, the MSM became unhinged.

When China bought the White House for Clinton, the MSM went mute.

Why Putin would be a better President than Obama -

Putin is against same sex marriage

Putin is for organized religion

Putin is against gays

Putin is for strong boarder security

Putin is against muslims

Putin is building up his military

Putin is not gay

Putin is feared by his opponents

How Putin and Obama are alike -

They are marxist, socialist and they hate America.

“”petite mixed radishes, merlot lettuce and baby carrots inspired by the first lady’s kitchen garden.””

I remember when the first lady was pictured canning or freezing those vegetables for salads. AH - I must have dreamed it.

Food represented from EIGHT states. I’m so impressed. They are doing their best to live like the rest of us..

Those of us in the path of the ice storm tonight have been concentrating on having enough food on hand from our local super market. I’m so glad the first family knows how to sacrifice.

From The Cave

We stare morosely at the rain,
As we sit in the mouth of the den.
There’ll be no game to flush,
No tracks to smell, so then …

It’s back into the labyrinth,
Where darkened comfort waits,
And soon enough, a meal appears,
On clean and shiny plates.

The animals who live here,
Accommodate our pack,
For we stand guard, protecting them,
That’s how we pay them back.

The press neglected to report the new set of china was paid for by private donations. No gov monies were used.
The Reagans left the china in the White House, unlike the Clintons who hauled (stole) away two large truckloads of china, silver, valuable antiques, paintings, etc. belonging to the American people.

"Because NicknamedBob's writing doesn't get near the exposure it deserves..."

Heh.

Here's another poem about dogs. I thought former White House dog Barney would have made a good leader ...

.



Dark Horse Candidate

Barney has his work cut out, rewriting constantly,
His Spellcheck doesn’t function well, (Let’s not blame poor Miss B.)
It’s this old cast-off computer, that he must try to use,
And someone put a Spiel-check on, to help the writer’s muse.

But speeches aren’t his strong suit. Prompt action is his way,
We’ll see the difference real soon. This dog will have his day!
The rumor has been spreading round, the Veep is soon to go,
The resumé needs polishing, but Barney’s in the know.

He hears the scuttlebutt for sure, his ear is to the ground,
And if a tasty bit of news should fall, with Barney it’s soon found.
The Boss will need some back-up, and who best to supply,
Than W’s best friend in the world? Yay! Barney, he’s our guy!

NicknamedBob . . . . . . . . . . . . . . April 4, 2006

Putin has experience in leadership, management, diplomacy, self control, media composure and international relations.
He is loyal to his country and is working for it’s improvement. He doesn’t give any quarter to terrorists. And the world leaders respect him even if they don’t agree with him.

Baraq Hussein Obama has no experience is the above listed.
He is loyal to himself only. His working to destroy the country he was elected to lead. He gives terrorists aid and comfort. And the world leaders openly make fun of him and look at him as a paper tiger.

It will be a wonder if we make through this national nightmare.
