Sacrifice is for the little people.
It may be the worst recession since the Great Depression but that doesn’t mean everyone is suffering.
The Obama Administration went all out last night at their State Dinner for Communist China.

  1. Cabernet is a white wine on Quilceda Creek?

  2. Please put a warning that that photograph is not suitable for children to view, as it might give them nightmares.
    Those looked like Wicked Witch of the West eyes

  3. OMG, I need eye bleach. What did they put in Hill’s glass?
    At least they didn’t haul out their mad dog 20/20 stash.

  4. Please do us all a favor Jim, please don’t show anymore close up pictures of Hillary.

    She looks like a mean bus driver I had in school.

  5. Since the republicans are looking for places to cut the budget I think I know where they can start.

  6. The Quilcede wine won some award. There was another WA wine from Walla Walla also served. It is only around $20 per bottle.

  7. Toasting commies.

    It’s come down to this.

  8. Nothing like a little sacrifce by the first couple. The might have had $500 a bottle wine for our guests.

    What did the party cost the little people who stayed home?

    I hope it didn’t take theone’s focus off of creating jobs for all of us who are unemployed.

  9. Chicom Hu should have brought his own wine. Perhaps a nice bottle of Chateau Tiananmen Square.

  10. I live in WA State’s wine country. Believe me . . . $200 bottles of wine aren’t really that unusual. I sure don’t know who buys them, though. $20 seems enough for me.

  11. America is being ruled, not served.

    DEFUND the partying, wine, and European shopping budgets… pronto.

  12. I have to tell you, that seems like an extremely heavy menu to me – “buttermilk crisp onions” = French Fried Onion Rings, Double stuffed potatoes are baked potatoes, with the insides scooped out, mashed (usually with cheese) then stuffed back into the shell and baked (usually with more cheese), creamed spinach. . . . . heavy, heavy, heavy! No wonder the “first lady”‘s rear end looks like the back view of the Titanic from a tugboat.

  13. What? They were all out of Two Buck Chuck?

  14. That is one evil beo-tch

  15. Jesus that photo of Hillary. Actually I believe the wrong end was up…

  16. Remember, Dear Leader was wounded in the Battle of Châteaubriand. Takes some good wine to deal with the pain.

  17. No dessert? Lame!

  18. You all know what the difference is between a $10 wine and a $200 wine? $190 and the suckers that buy it.

  19. Strangely enough, I don’t mind this. I mean, technically, it’s being used at a state dinner, as opposed to an official Obama vacation. So I can kind of give him a pass on this.
