BIG PARTY WEEK FOR THE OBAMAS
http://thehill.com/capital-living/in-the-know/118269-big-party-week-for-the-obamas ^

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama have a packed social schedule this week, with two major galas and a reception for college athletes.

On Monday evening, the President will welcome collegiate star athletes to the White House for a reception at 5:45 p.m. The annual event, first held by former President George W. Bush, recognizes outstanding student athletes in more than a dozen sports, including field-hockey, lacrosse, and volleyball. Neither of Obama's alma maters, Columbia University and Harvard University, made the grade.

On Wednesday the First Couple will don black tie for the annual Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute gala, one of the more entertaining political galas of the Washington fall season. A number of entertainers are being honored with awards, including Eva Longoria Parker, five-time Grammy winner Arturo Sandoval, and musician Sheila E. Also participating in the festivities will be Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Hopefully the Obamas get some rest Thursday or Friday, because they will be back in formalwear on Saturday night for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's (CBCF) annual Phoenix Awards dinner. The dinner will mark the culmiantion of the foundation's 40th Annual Legislative Conference.

Honorees at the dinner will include New Jersey State Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver, actor and humanitarian Harry Belafonte, journalist Simeon Booker, and renowned choreographer Judith Jamison.

Washingtonians will recall that White House party-crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi allegedly snuck into the CBCF dinner in 2009. Expect security to be extra tight this time around.

The Washington social season unofficially begins Saturday night with the Washington National Opera's season opening gala, and ends in early December with the Kennedy Center Honors.

actor and humanitarian Harry Belafonte

This guy seems to be awarded something every other month. When was the last time he acted in anything and what humanitarian causes is he involved in?

He does seem to like kissing dictator's asses.

You know, this Marxist and his “wife” are really pushing it.

Talks that “economy and jobs jive,” and then turns around and does this fancy entertaining.

Lucky for him, he has lamestream in his pocket, because he would otherwise have all hell breaking loose.

Stupid arse democrats, they damn fools continue to vote with him.

I just got an auto-call from my kid's school saying that Obama will address the students this week and we can pull them from seeing the video if we want. What's he going to bore them about this time???

Any college athlete who attends these parties should be stricken from the employment pool. DON'T HIRE THESE PEOPLE. They piss on the free market. Why hire them and give them the fruits of that market? Let them sing and dance for a living...

Has there ever been a non-big party week. And to think that Nancy Reagan caught all kinds of hell over the media-created borrowed dress debacle. This is what happens when the public votes for politicians who think that they can do whatever they want. They’re just out proving the voters right.

President Barack Obama will deliver his second annual address to the nation’s school children Tuesday and — like last year — parents will have the option of having their children opt out of watching the speech.

The Washington social season unofficially begins Saturday night with the Washington National Opera's season opening gala, and ends in early December with the Kennedy Center Honors.

I shall not be checking my mailbox for invitations. Nevertheless, as long as these ruling-class fools are paying for their own tickets to this candy-floss farce I don't have a beef. Well, much of one. This is, after all, a crowd that grandly holds NASCAR aficionados in contempt - quite another season, you know - and would be mortally offended were they forced by regrettable circumstance to grant admission to such middle-class draft animals as the Palins.

One wonders what the "social season" was like in Versailles just before the fall. Party like it's 1789, baby, and hope that there's enough leftover cake for the unemployed. Because I'm afraid that the unwashed masses are going to come knocking about halfway through this gala social season. November 2nd, to be precise.

It's time for the Black Caucus to be disbanded.

they are no longer a ‘minority’ - if you calculate by the %-age of blacks vs whites in this country.

It's discriminatory. (Wanna try for a “White Caucus”?)

“...the President will welcome collegiate star athletes to the White House....”

I’ll bet they’re young, male and well built and may even be in their uniforms (football athletes in those tight, tight leggings....ooooooooooooh!)

Hope Reggie isn’t jealous!!!!!

Barry has been on vacation for four months, then spends two weeks working, which entails throwing another few hundred billion down a rathole and now he’s ready to party! Party at a series of rascist get-togethers celebrating specific races! Woo-hoo, party!

Our district let parents and teachers decide. I do not know of a single teacher who turned the tv on.

A tee time wasn't booked? There was no taxpayer paid vacation for their friends? No lobster lost its life to MO?

I am beginning to think Barack Hussein is smarter than people think. He obviously is cramming eight years of partying and vacationing into just four years. Smart Very Smart.

It is so refreshing to know that mac daddy will be having another party, at the tax payer expense, while mothers and fathers are trying to find some way to feed their children.

THE MOST WORTHLESS, ARROGANT AND EVIL POTUS EVER, BAR NONE.
