Obamas to Host Third Command Concert Since Sequester
White House Dossier ^ | 9/16/13 | Keith Koffler

Posted on 09/16/2013 4:08:03 PM PDT by Nachum

President and Mrs. Obama Monday night will host their third “command performance” since the sequester began in March, grooving in the East Room to the sounds of Hispanic music.

Obamas danceAmong the stars who will appear to serenade the first couple are Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin, Raul Malo, Prince Royce, Natalie Cole, Lila Downs, Arturo Sandoval, Romeo Santos, Alejandro Sanz and Marco Antonio Solis.

While workers are being furloughed throughout the government, services are cut, and White House tours remain on ice, private concerts for the Obamas somehow remain beyond the budget axe. The Obamas hosted a “celebration” of Memphis soul music in April and a tribute to Carole King in May.

Natalie Cole passed away a few years ago. How is she going to the White House, as a Democrat?

Ms Cole is alive and well. You thinking of Whitley Houston?

Look, the only reason this event would be cancelled... is if I get a hankering to shoot 18 holes--

Are you confusing Natalie with her father, Nat King Cole?

I am in grave error. Natalie Cole is alive. I remember a discussion here on FR about her imminent demise how Hep C and the drug addictions had destroyed her kidney and liver. Its what I get for assuming that she passed instead of hanging on. I never checked later to see if Freeper prayers for her worked. I guess they did.

The Obama’s are a sick, selfish and arrogant family.

Not because of the Navy Yard incident.

Some wiseass tossed some firecrackes over the WH gate. The SS can't drag Obiteme out of the bunker. Even for Gloria Estefan.

It’s like the old black man told my dentist. “Obama ain’t as black as I am.” And he sure doesn’t care how they live either. Yet they’ll continue to support him. It’s in their dna.

I once tried to show a black couple how their loan officer was screwing them but they still stayed with her. Back in the 70s ABC did a program on blacks screwing blacks. For instance, in car sales blacks paid more for cars bought from black salemen than from white salesmen.

It would have meant something if they had postponed the party around the same time that the Nats cancelled their game with the Braves. But I suspect that there was never any intention to delay the party, and it was only the firecracker event at the White House hours later that precipitated the party cancellation. The Secret Service probably demanded it since guests would be arriving at the same venue as the firecracker attack.
