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 Obamas 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 Frances 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.
Obamas media courtiers applauded the ostentatious display of canine luxury. Bo And Sunny Obama Get Decked Out For The State Dinner And Its Pretty Adorable, says the headline on an article at the Huffington Post.
In 1980, Ronald Reagans 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 Reagans 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 Obamas followers.
So cute! Aww! said a tweet from Erica.
OMG SO CUTE, said Jessica.
Others reactions were jaundiced. #Boneghazi, said a tweet from SeaWorldSammy. Dont laugh. That will be the @FoxNews headliner tomorrow, he added.
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 presidents 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 ladys 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. Obamas 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.
Wow, Michelle surely has class!
** IN YOUR FACE, AMERICA!! **
Ya ever notice that all the “entertainment” at these functions are black?
Hey, the royal dog-minders have to do something for fun.
“’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?’”
How do you sit at that table?
Let the peasents eat ALPO!
Apparently nothing is too good or expensive for their dogs, too.
A great book. Should be required reading of all high schoolers.
Hey Michelle! Get your d***** dogs off of OUR chairs!
The older I get, the more I appreciate Orwell’s wisdom.
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.
Thats the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want
WHO ON EARTH would plan an outdoor “TENT” dinner in February in DC????? That’s the judgment of these people...sheesh.
This is not a joke. This is obviously how these dogs eat every day in the White House.
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.
where’s Dog #3?
"Oh yeah... good dog!"
I’m less upset about the dogs dining on the historic china than I am about the Obamas doing so.
Some days you wonder if we’d be better off with Bo sitting at the Oval Office desk and Barry curled up under it, licking himself.
“”WHO ON EARTH would plan an outdoor TENT dinner in February in DC””
My first thought! Isn’t this storm suppose to hit DC and surrounding areas pretty hard??
And to think that the proglodytes whine about “one percenters”. Pfah. At least the “one percenters” are spending their own damned money!
“”petite mixed radishes, merlot lettuce and baby carrots inspired by the first ladys 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.
I agree on both counts.
Same here, FRiend.
The one on the left appears to be bi-racial, there is some white in him.
Gee, a far cry from the Prole Rations that Michelle tells the peasants to eat.
It's all black except when blaming whitey.
Agree my daughter just finished reading this for her freshman English class (catholic school) also had to write an essay proving Orwell’s use of satire comparing the book to communist Russia. Good Stuff.
In 1980, Ronald Reagans 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 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.
If the morons who helped put these idiots where they are DO NOT now understand who these two are after they have spent 5 years sticking it to them and in their faces, these Kool-Aid drinking morons deserve all the misery now coming down on their ill-educated and ignorant heads.
Here's another poem about dogs. I thought former White House dog Barney would have made a good leader ...
movin on up! to the top!
moving on up! to deeelux apartment in the skyyyyy,
Because Al Gore said his climate models predicted it would be a warm 80 degrees :)
Someone on another site pointed out the similarity to the story of Caligula and his horse.
The epitome of “N-—— Rich.”
I'm surprised the indonesian/kenyan bastard hasn't barbequed them and chowed down.
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.
In fairness to Her Highness, it is unlikely that you could open a White House kitchen cabinet and find a plastic doggie dish. So you use what is at hand!
