Another Exclusive Party at W.H.—at Taxpayer Expense
The Weekly Standard ^ | Apr 9, 2013 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 04/09/2013 7:58:54 AM PDT by LucianOfSamasota

On Barack and Michelle Obama's schedule for today, this event is listed:

7:30PM THE PRESIDENT and THE FIRST LADY host a concert celebrating Memphis Soul music as part of their “In Performance at the White House” series; THE PRESIDENT delivers remarks

As the White House has previously announced, Justin Timberlake (who will be making his White House debut), Al Green, Ben Harper, Queen Latifah, Cyndi Lauper, Joshua Ledet, Sam Moore, Charlie Musselwhite, Mavis Staples, and others will be performing at the exclusive event.

But while the performers are known, the guest list for the private event has not yet been released.

One imagines it's a tough ticket to come by. To attend any event at the White House, one must be invited. (The White House is now closed for public access by members of the general public.) And especially this one, with Hollywood and musical stars--and with remarks by the president of the United States.

Given the list of stars - I’m not so sure - I’d be suffering if I had to sit there and politely listen to all of those people.

If the DNC audits B. Hussein, they will find that all of his political stunts are aimed at generating “donations” for Obama’s RETIREMENT SLUSH FUND.

The Conservative citizens of DC need to picket that place when these extravaganzas go on.

Maybe then the Queen and King of our MONEY would think twice about kicking the s^%$ in our face with these parties.

I wonder if the media would even notice.

Hey...this is Obama’s way of contributing to the economy. These entertainers really need the work and more money so they can afford their luxurious lifestyles. Wouldn't want them to "eat their peas" like the rest of America has been told to do. *smirk*

So the taxpayers are footing the bill for all their air travel and 4-Star hotels?

Is Obama sending AF-1 to pick them each up?

Obama’s RETIREMENT SLUSH FUND.

I think he lusts for the 'purple', and his efforts are designed to create a 'Chavez-style' dictatorship.

But hopefully you are right, and he's just a corrupt pol.

Now now, this isn’t ALL being paid for by the American public. 49% don’t even pay taxes!

Besides, it’s being taped for Public Television. So they are probably covering part of the cost. < /sarc >

Oh, good. So the kids who can't get a White House tour can at least watch the PBS broadcast to see what the insides of the people's house look like!

I hope Booker T sticks around so he can catch that ‘3:00 a.m. phone call’ from North Korea.

Drunk or sober, for sure he will handle it better than “O” or anyone in THAT administration.

Barry Soetoro, a legal citizen of Indonesia, who is also known as B. Hussein Obama, is a confirmed Communist.

Barry/B. Hussein also considers himself to be a World Citizen.

America is just the first of the low-hanging fruit that B. Hussein plans to harvest.

“Is Obama sending AF-1 to pick them each up?”

Last I heard, it’s all booked up lately for politicizing Newton CT and toting “grieving” family members around.

For the Fraud and Big Media, the ends justify the means, with extreme prejudice, bigotry and hate.

They are not and never will be nobility.

I can only conclude that due to youth many have not been taught about Reconstuction in the Post Civil War South. Many of the receipts showing the expenses incurred by the legislatures, imposed on the southern states, in that time frame are on the internet. Go look. There is no difference between those legislatures and the current administration. Life was and is one big party at taxpayer expense.

Meanwhile, funding for the Blue Angels has been cut, so they won’t be touring this year.

Yet the Obama family vacation to Hawaii cost about 1/4th of the Blue Angels yearly budget and on the eve of NK’s announced a Missile launch, Obama is hosting a star-studded gala at the WH at taxpayer expense.

OTOH, San Francisco will lose Millions of dollars from the cancellation of Fleet Week as the Blue Angels would draw 1 Million spectators and would bring in extra revenues to Hotels, Motels, Bars, Restaurants, etc...

FUBO

If I were to post my true feelings regarding these charlatans, I would be getting a visit from the Secret Service.

And I’m sure they wouldn’t be limited to 10 round mags either.

The Obama tribe is looting America like the Katrina looters stripped New Orleans.

They are nothing but Chi-town grifters who got into the neighbors home and are stuffing their pockets with anything not bolted down.

Just said the same, I;m so sick of our side which lets this self imposed royal family close our house, while they have vacations, concerts, dinners etc.

It’s a frigging outrage and if anyone on the left and the media which are the same today has no problem with this or point to Bush then they are nothing but hypocritical and only care about letters after a persons name like D [should be S for socialist] and don;t give a damn about the country or others who live in this country

I could never print what I think on here about these two people.

What nearly pisses me off as much is how our side is not doing a damn thing about any of this or even going after the media

Why is our leadership not out there calling all the networks for a meeting or press conference and saying why are you the media not pointing out this lavish lifestyle you would if this was a republican and why the hell is anyone outside the white house protesting this crap.

Telling me that there are no conservatives in DC who can protest and call the networks or are they too busy with their reaching out at their elitist cocktail parties and why isn’t anyone from talk radio taking a trip out there and chaining themselves to the fence and demanding the house , OUR HOUSE TO BE OPEN

As a resident of Memphis this offends me. However as Memphis is Democrat controlled, the local Democrat zombies are likely happy to fund this extravagance(sp?).
