...Also on hand to mark the Presidential milestone were former governors Bill Richardson and Tim Kaine, and Mr. Obama's staunchest allies in the debt battle--Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Senior White House staff also celebrated: Chief of Staff Bill Daley, Cecelia Munoz, John Brennan, and Valerie Jarrett. Mrs. Obama's former Chief of Staff, Susan Sher, flew in from Chicago, as did two of the President's closest pals: Dr. Eric Whitaker, University of Chicago Hospital Vice-President, and The Parking Spot President and CEO Marty Nesbitt. Campaign fundraiser Andy Spahn was spotted, too."

Hanks must have really stood out in THAT crowd. I’m surprised (and yet, disappointed) they didn’t beat him up.

Can anyone provide links to some of the media coverage of George Bush’s big birthday bashes? I’d really like to compare to see if they provided the same level of enthusiasm for Bush’s birthday . . .

Oh yeah, Bush was a class act and wouldn’t dream of making a public spectacle out of a private (and unimportant) occasion. I mean really, a birthday party for the president? I expect to see balloons and pointy hats. How ridiculous. You’d think the guy was turning 9, not 50.

Obama's team was not eager for pictures of the bash...

I can see why...

First thought that came to my mind also.

While the US tanked Obama fiddled away like nothing was going on.

The Obummers (including the old grifter mother-in-law), Stevie Wonder, Jay Z, Tom Hanks, Chris Rock, Charles Barkley, Grant Hill, and Whoopi Goldberg.

I’d rather spend an evening with a random selection from any bus station lobby waiting area.

FTA:

". . . flew in from Chicago, as did two of the President's closest pals: Dr. Eric Whitaker, University of Chicago Hospital Vice-President . . ."

My, my the VP of the outfit that give Moochelle a $100,000+ per yr. PR sinecure when the Illegal got elected to the Ill. State Senate and then upped her to a VP sinecure at $300,000+ per year when the Illegal was elected to the U.S. Senate. Naturally, this wasn't a bribe to induce the Illegal to get a $1,200,000 earmark for the U.C. Hospitals Corporation shortly after he was elected to the U.S. Senate. Still, there is that difficult little matter of former IL. gov. Rod Blagojevich, who was just convicted of bribery for doing the same kind of thing with his wife.

” Still, there is that difficult little matter of former IL. gov. Rod Blagojevich, who was just convicted of bribery for doing the same kind of thing with his wife.”

So true. But that would take some real investigation and desire for fairness.

A concept sadly lost on the MSM and many in the legal profession.

And obviously a brilliant actor. Few have played more patriotic, gentle, honest traditional people than he has...and just as obviously, he didn’t mean a word he spoke as any of those characters.

There is no need to go further than Tom to demonstrate that actors are fundamentally dishonest and the society that takes any of them in the least serious is far down the path of self-destruction.

Chris Rock? He was funny years ago.
Tom Hanks.... over the hill his movies are bombs. Which Hollywood Obama voter gave the OK to make Hanks latest bomb “Harry Crown”?

I hate to say it but Tom Hanks is a complete dope, politically. He is a limousine lib like no other. Well, I think Ted Danson beats him out by a hair....

Great actor, seems like a nice guy...but he's bought the EVIL CONSERVATIVE mantra, hook, line and sinker. (Is that the fishing reference?—I don't fish!)

I stopped paying $$$ to see films with actors who are vociferous in their support of the Left, and who make their disdain of Conservatives known. Sean Penn, Alec Baldwin, Matt Damon, etc. Hanks is also on the list.

Too bad. I think he is such a moving and effective actor. Green Mile and Gump were just wonderful...he was perfect in those parts. Oh, well. I guess I and millions of other American’s will skip on his new movie with that old hagged out Julia Roberts. Oh! That's right! NOBODY is seeing that mess....not just the evil “tea ba**ers”. Bwahahahaaaa!

Oh my word! How funny! That is the best pic I've seen in months! I nearly spewed my coffee when I spied John Belushi!

Of course they don't want pics of the bash. The economy is crashing, lots of hard working people cant find jobs for going on 2-3 years, his policies are being exposed for what they are—a Leftist scheme, his wife is a grifter who is filtering millions of $$$ through the Let's Move program to her fellow travellers...etc., etc.

Last year when he felt invincible...Oh, boy...the pics would have been released to great fan fare! Oh, and what about that “fit, international style icon”? Just a few months ago she would be parading her designer outfit like a fat arsed peacock...Now...oh...no pics.

These grifters are going down. Hopefully Issa is getting ready to go after Obama after he takes down Holder.

Naw....times are tough for Barry and Moo....no pics to rile up the po folk.

The really disgusting thing is that, although the Founders demonstrated how serious an offense they viewed bribery as being, by only mentioning it and treason as specifically impeachable offenses in Article II, Section 4 of he Constitution, the entire MSM has utterly ignored the up to their eyeballs bribery conspiracy Moochelle and the Illegal were probably in with the U.C. Hospitals Corporation.
