In January 2009, before the president signed his failed $787 billion stimulus bill into law, Barack Obama lectured America saying,

“Everyone must sacrifice for the greater good… Everyone must have some skin in the game.”

Everyone but Barack and Michelle Obama or their staffers.

Hollywood stars danced barefoot in the White House Rose Garden last night at Barack Obama’s birthday bash.
The Sun Times reported:

President Obama celebrated his 50th birthday Thursday night with a celebrity-filled bash, as entertainer Chris Rock reported on his Twitter feed: “Just left the Presidents birthday party at the White House. Herbie Hancock played, Stevie Wonder sang and yes they did the electric slide. A great night.”

Daughter Malia, 13 just arrived home from summer camp in time for the Rose Garden party as she was joined by her sister, Sasha, 10, First Lady Michelle, grandmother Marian Robinson and their godmother, Eleanor “Mama Kaye, Wilson,” who flew to Washington from Chicago on Air Force One with Obama when he returned from his Thursday fund-raiser back home.

Obama’s party–paid for, the White House said, by the First Couple–was closed press and not on his official schedule. Obama’s team was not eager for pictures of the bash, coming as the stock market was plunging and a new jobless report comes out Friday morning.

Eddie Gehman Kohan, who presides over Obama Foodorama, the website of record about entertaining in the Obama White House, put together a detailed report about the five-hour barbeque, based on interviews of people who were there. Read her entire article here.

  1. There went the neighborhood.

  2. Hope they enjoyed Obama playing the fiddle.

  3. “Obama’s party–paid for, the White House said, by the First Couple”

    oh BULL $HIT…if you believe that you believe in the tooth fairy…I have never seen such a class-less lyin corrupt admin

  4. It’s gonna take some SERIOUS cleaning to clean out this infestation in the WH.

    The Jefferson’s have indeed “moved on up….”

    Screw him and his followers.

  5. once obama runs all those millionaires through the wringer…….. closing the gap by taxing the millionaires will make Jesus’ dividing of the loaves and fishs look amateurish.

  6. this is very confusing.I thought that the party was at the Aragon Hotel in Chicago. Now it appears that it was at the WH.

  7. Where are the old school conservatives with the brains and guts of a Taft or Goldwater? Why is it either this clueless dilletante or some left wing Republican?

  8. As I have said over and over these past 2 years, Obama fiddles as the U.S. burns.

    hate to say it, but it’s more like we’re doing the
    fiddling while Barry burns down the house.. :-(

  10. Looks more like a street fest in the slums of Rio or some kind of pre-hunt jig on the COngo…what a disgrace…we have definatley sunk to 3rd world status in every respect.

  11. The comments I would really like to make would require Mr. Hoft to ban me from this site for life. Barry-boy makes me sick with all his parties, vacations, etc. I couldn’t take my kids anywhere for vacation this year and I sure the hell can’t afford a birthday party for them. My kids and I make sacrifice after sacrifice just to make ends meet while Barry-boy and Moose-chelle party like there is no tomorrow.

  12. “Skin in the game, skin in the grass, Sometimes I get confused”
    - President Obama

  13. Skin and toejam in the game

  14. Why taxing the rich won’t fix budget problems (or crunching the numbers to find the truth).
    From Politico:
    “President Barack Obama and many Democrats are talking about raising taxes on the wealthy, and new data released this week by the Internal Revenue Service reveals new details about the number of Americans who fit that bill.
    People and households earning $1 million or more annually made up just 0.1 percent, or just over 235,000, of the 140
    Though the tax rate for Americans earning a gross adjusted income of $1 million or more averaged 24.4 percent, up from 23.1 percent in 2008, that’s still lower than the 28.5 percent rate they paid in 2002 when President George W. Bush was in office.
    And, the data shows, the 235,413 taxpayers who reported earning seven digits or more in 2009 took in a total of $726.9 billion …

    Doing the math:
    $726.9 billion earned by people making $1 million or more
    The tax rate for this group averaged 24.4%
    Raising the taxes on this group to the 28.5 % in 2002 would raise (.285-.244) * $726.9 billion = 29 Billion in added revenues
    A 100% tax increase on this group would raise .244 * $726.9 = $177.36 billion in added revenues.
    From the Congressional budget office the deficit in 2010 was $1.29 Trillion
    Going back to Bush year 2002 tax rates would have only reduced the 2010 budget deficit by 29/1290 = 2.2%
    Doubling taxes on this group would have only reduce the 2010 budget deficit by 177.36/1290 = 14%
    Conclusion: Even a 100% taxes increase on people making over $1M/year would have left the 2010 budget deficit at $1.29 – $.177 = $1.11 Trillion

  15. Can I come to the States and make a sacrifice? I’d sacrifice a pig on Obama’s lawn. “Soil” it with pig’s blood. Ha!

    Then again, pigs are smarter than the average commie, so maybe I should sacrifice a commie instead.

    Also, if Obama’s party is paid for by the First Couple, then in reality it’s paid by the tax payer.

  16. Meanwhile, the punk “kids” who saturate themselves with the VILE HATE spewed by these “entertainers” and the worldview of the Obamas are putting their “instructions” into effect.

    …a few headlines from Drudge:

    ‘Mob’ beatings at WI state fair…

    ‘Hundreds of young black people beating white people’…

    Fairgoers ‘pulled out of cars’…

    ‘They were just going after white people’…

  17. Why don’t we start compiling a list of the celebrities who openly support Obama & let our $$$ do the talking?

    “Stevie Wonder Jay Z; Tom Hanks; Chris Rock; Charles Barkley & Grant Hill; Whoopi Goldberg; Cowboys Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith; actor Hill Harper. He’s one of the President’s closest chums from Harvard law school, and star of CSI: NY. R & B singer Ledisi dazzled the crowd. & Although I didn’t know he was still alive Herbie Hancock

  18. Five birthday parties. Count ‘em – 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. A veritable Fuhrer-Tag.

    The man is asbolutely shameless.

    I am concerned he will not leave office when he loses the 2012 election.
