President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle will host a star-studded roster of music legends April 9 for another glitzy installment in the “In Performance at the White House” concert series, according to a White House press released issued Tuesday.

The concert comes as the White House is emphasizing cuts caused by sequestration and criticizing reporters for not paying enough attention to the hardship caused by the mandatory slowdown in the rate of spending increases. Though the White House notably ( canceled all visitor tours) in March, ostensibly due to sequestration, the First Couple’s series of White House concerts — billed as “the nation’s highest honor for popular song” — manages to survive.

(Obama blames his guards for closing White House tours)....That man proposed "sequestration" himself....GALL has no limits when it comes to Barry and Michelle....utterly classless and mendacious to a fault.

You, unfortunately, are probably spot on. The most racist WH ever!
