After Obama Tells America "Everyone Must Sacrifice" the White House Throws 1 Party Every 3 Days in First Year

Back in January 2009, before he signed his failed $787 billion stimulus bill into law, Barack Obama told America that everyone must sacrifice for the greater good. Everyone must have “some skin in the game.”

What he meant, of course, was that everyone would have to sacrifice to lift American out of the worst recession since the Great Depression except for Barack and Michelle Obama.

Now we learn that the the Obama White House has held one party every three days in first year of Obama reign.
Rep. Bob Latta (R-OH) reported:

Let the good times roll” – and roll they have at the Obama White House, while nearly 11% of the workforce remains unemployed, nearly four million Americans are losing their homes, and terrorists ride the open skies.

In fact, according to the Chicago Tribune, the stylish Ms. Rogers and the party-hearty First Couple hosted no less than 170 parties and social events through December 3 of 2009. And that does not even include the 17 parties and 11 open houses – feting more than 50,000 guests – ABC News reported the Obamas hosted throughout the Holiday Season.

For those not counting, that means by January, 2010, Ms. Rogers had staged one gala White House event every three days throughout the first year of the Obama Administration, making the once austere Executive Mansion look more like party central.

No wonder the Secret Service has problems at the Whitehouse. Security is no longer their primary duty, they are now Bouncers at the bar.

    Pssst. Mr. and Mrs. Obama, Mrs. Pelosi and Mr. Reid, WE ARE OUT OF MONEY!


    This is our moment: US Government running annualized $1.55T deficit as hope, change and central planning policies poison economy

    Now I understand why the U.S. Marines on Presidential Assignment are requesting other assignments and to leave Washington D.C.

    I thought that Jimmy Carter’s adminstration was the most low class group the country ever elected. ..I stand corrected. This whole obama scenario is like some doofus wins the lottery and then goes ahead and tries to spend it all at once.. I’m embarassed for the country, Thank you so much 52%

    I dunno…visions of A Tale of Two Cities comes to mind….
    “let them eat cake”…and all that.

    I would like to know how this contrasts to George and Laura Bush. I really was concerned when the Obama’s took over the WH that they would treat it like a playhouse. It appears my worse fears are being realized.

    I can imagine a lot of people in the armed forces, and in the secret service not wanting to serve in the White House. Especially in this administration.

    I said the same thing about the Clinton administration.

    Maybe the White House historian could hold some classes on the French Revolution.

  • Betsy Ross

    But of course Mel Brooks’ portrayal of King Louis XVI and his “it’s good to be the King” line also comes to mind…

    Reagan was right on! Love listening to his speeches.

    Reagan vs. Obama:

    But we all know what came next, Betsy.

    And it wasn’t the bucket of stuff. 😉

  • KR

    Oh, sorry. The above post (#9) seems OT, but not completely. Compare Reagan’s seriousness and wisdom with barry’s ineptitude.

  • Stephen Morgan

    He’s made the White House nothing but complete ghetto.

    He’s turning the White House into the playboy mansion! I’ma thinking a whole lot of scrubbing and disinfectant will be the order of the day when he’s shown the door. Let’s pray sooner rather then later!

    From January 20, 2009 to December 3, 2009 is only 318 days. If they really held 170 parties and social events in that period, that is actually more than 1 every 2 days.

    And in the holiday season, if we assume that it extended from December 4, 2009 to January 1, 2010, there were 28 parties and social events in 28 days, or one per day.

    Was Wagyu beef served at every event, or did they switch to hummingbird tongues and other Roman delicasies.

    Well. Glad they’re having fun.

    While they wreck us.

  • someone out there

    I am curious about the comparison between the Obamas and the Bush WH.

    I suspect that GWB was not much of a party animal, but I’d like to see hard numbers.
