Let’s compare Michelle Obama’s birthday party with Laura Bush’s when George was in office
Young Conservatives ^ | 1/24/14 | Joshua Riddle

Posted on 02/02/2014 10:38:14 AM PST by Nachum

The president and his queen are the epitome of corruption and greed. They talk about “caring for the poor” while spending piles of other people’s money on their celebrity parties.

Disgusting.

If anyone still clings to some charitable notion that there is more to Michelle Obama than a celebrity wanna-be opportunist, let her 50thbirthday celebration be the proof that does away with any remaining delusions.

The FLOTUS’ birthday bash invitees included such moneyed stars as Gladys Knight, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, Michael Jordan, Stevie Wonder, Samuel L. Jackson, Ashley Judd, and, of course, power couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z (the latter of whom sings a little ditty that says, among many other vile words it’d be indecent to print here: “Uh, she love different kinds of sex now, Uh, black girl sippin’ white wine, Put my fist in her like a civil rights sign”).

And this is just the stuff we know about.

The event was so top secret, the NSA had to find out about it by reading Sasha and Malia’s text messages. No cell phones were permitted for the 500 people who attended, and those who disobeyed were told to check their devices at the door.

Michelle’s guest list of famous “friends” was the tip of the iceberg. The party “was reportedly everything you’d expect from a glamorous White House party: Glitzy and stocked with powerful celebrities and government officials.” They danced until 3 a.m., at least, and drank champagne, wine, beer, and hard liquor. All of it. All at once.

When Laura Bush turned 60, she got a modest four paragraph mention inPeople magazine: Laura “celebrated her 60th birthday on Saturday at the Bush family’s ranch in Crawford, Tex., where the President gave her a triple-strand amber-colored necklace.

“The Bushes spent the weekend at the ranch, and on Saturday hosted friends…for a dinner of enchiladas, tamales, guacamole, rice and beans and birthday cake.”

Hey, I definitely do not have a problem with rich people enjoying their lives and doing rich people things. (This is why I read/look at pictures on DailyMail.) Were I half as wealthy as any of these celebs, I would be doing the same, except I would be partying with Rick Perry or Prince Harry or anyone but the Obamas.

The problem, though, is the hypocrisy, obviously, (Michelle’s extra long vacation at Oprah’s place cost us an estimated $60-$100 million) and the lavish lifestyles the Commander and his Indulger-in-Chief lead when the nation is suffering and nobody likes you anyway. This, coming from an administration whose most recent political platform focuses on income inequality.

Some Americans are more equal than others, I guess.

Nancy Reagan was criticized vehemently in the liberal press for purchasing an elaborate White House china set even though the set was paid for privately. Hilarious that the MSM gives the Obama’s a pass on their taxpayer funded multi-million dollar vacations.

No truer words spoken. By the time we get these two assholes out of office they will have parties and vacation us in the hundreds of billions and have done nothing but destroy America.

I remember that. If Bush was in office and pulled the lavish stunts these people have done, in this economy, they would have called for impeachment.

Not so funny. It is another insult by the blockheads of the left.

Nancy Reagan got slammed. That’s why the Republicans need to just go all conservative.

You cannot please the libs.

Nancy Reagan had no real support. She was a liberal. Pro abortion.

the conservatives were not going to jump to her defense.

That michelle is allowed to do anything is not about her but htat the liberals are tolerant of any one who supports their religion, eh, Ideology - liberalism.

A bridge closing is much worse than allowing our diplomats to be murdered by the countrypeople at their foreign post.

the bridge closing, or the china purchase, is unforgivable by conservatives, because these people, Nancy Reagan and Christie, loathe(d) conservatives - not the other way around.

If romping at the boardwalk arm in arm with Obama is not hateful of conservatives and their sensibilities, I am way off.

The WH had no full set of china, the pieces had broken over the years and they were supplementing with previous patterns. THAT was disgraceful. Nancy Reagan absolutely did the correct thing in ordering a complete set of china for state dinners.

When Nancy bought new china for the WH, the media went into hysterics.

When China bought the WH for Clinton, the media went mute.

BTW, the china for the WH didn’t cost taxpayers a dime, the cost was paid for by a philanthropist.

Laura Bush spent $40k on some new wh dinnerware and the press went nuts.

This wookie has 32 assistants costing us millions. Not a peep.

When they were living at home she greeted the air-conditioned repairman at the door in blue-jeans and in her bare feet and chatted with him as he did he repairs. When she went to Washington, she was criticized for her apparel and so they had to trot her up to NYC to get a fashion make-over, which she took in good spirit. Good catch for George, and he knows it.

Not so elaborate. Not much different than any set of Lenox (made in the USA at the time) that any bride might have chosen during those years. As I remember, the Johnson china was so broken up that there were not enough pieces left to set a complete State Dinner Party.

BTW, I think that the Reagan china was beautiful, and I think she should have taken it with her as thanks for all the fuss that was made over it.

And didn’t the Clintoons “accidentally” load it into their moving van, along with the 100 year old cutlery?

Of course MOST of it was returned, and it was blamed on the moving company.

Yeah... right...

I will say that Laura and George Bush, AND Ronald and Nancy Reagan made me so proud to be an American. They conducted themselves in a presidential fashion, and you had respect and admiration for them.

Those two pigs currently in OUR White House can’t shovel it in fast enough...anything and everything they can get their mouth and hands on. Pigs, and a huge embarrassment.
