Everyone Must Sacrifice… Hollywood Hip-Hoppers Dance Barefoot in the Rose Garden at Obama’s B-Day Bash

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.

    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.

    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.

  • big L

    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.

  • 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?

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

    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.

  • Chrissy B

    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.

    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

    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.

  • 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’…

  • Eddie Willers

    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

    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.

  • USMC Thomas

    SØBama, disgraceful POS should resign for the good of the country.

  • Gerry

    Pretty bad optics, eh?
    Get these interlopers out of our house.

  • I had never heard of Hil Harper, Obama’s buddy from Harvard Law. I thought I’d check to see if he had any relationships with women and just as I guessed, no, and this is from a black website:

  • Redwine

    Funny how this Hypocrite-in-Chief is dependent on his hated “millionaires, billionaires, and corporate jet owners” to support his campaign with their big bucks.

  • west1890

    with those size eleven feet of Muchell’s I’m surprised there was room for anyone else’s feet

  • Jimbo

    And all this hate because a smart black man won an election? Wow….I am not sure, but I don’t think the Lords teaching includes abject hatred of people who are trying to make your life better. I guess being intelligent is not a requirement in the GOP – just devotion to a lost cause.

  • Jimbo

    Just wow. And to think you folks consider yourselves ‘good’ Americans. Good is not the word you should use. Frightened, mis-informed, socially repressed, unhappy, deluded. Those are the words that come to mind. Just wow…..I wish we had smarter citizens.


    hey jimbo…hopey changey you don’t run your mouth off like that in piblic…move along little boy

    Don’t worry, the Dems are going to throw the Black Messiah under the bus soon. That turd polisher extraordinaire is on the way out, and he knows it. I just hope everyone is keeping their eye on how many curtains are in the White House – that skank Michelle loves to sew them into dresses to drape her fat butt.

    “Sacrifice for the Greater Good.” Wasn’t that a rallying cry for the fascists of the 20s and 30s? History repeats itself.

  • AuntieMadder

    All I have to say to them is live it up now, mother f@#$%^s, because your partying in the White House will come to an abrupt end in 18 months.

  • Iconoclast

    Whew! Thank Goodness . . . I saw widdle jimmy’s comment about a “smart black man” winning election and was afraid I missed Herman Cain’s success at the polls.

    Ever heard of him, jimmy? The Black MAN who creates jobs? We’re not talking about the pusillanimous petulant little boy who rides Seabiscuit, child – that’s your sorry marxist excuse of a slime mold. Or were you speaking of Congressman West? Now **THERE** is a “smart black man” who has *already* won election.

    Neither of them need a Teleprompter to speak to grade school children. And, frankly, either of them has more intelligence in their toenail dirt than Ø backed by the entirety of his appointees. The incoming staff will have to remove the color-coded graffiti directions for using toilet tissue the dimocrap drones sprayed on the stall walls in the wake of the disaster of Ø’s coronation as chief entitlement pimp.

    Conservatives are not anti-black, anti-Latino or whatever pablum you leftist babbling bobblehead pukes are spewing at any given time. We *ARE* however, anti-socialist, anti-communist, anti-parasite and virulently loath the scum like Ø and its supporters who are destroying this great nation.

    #32, bg: when do ACORNS blossom??
    #18, Opaobie already answered this question by pointing out instances where Acorn blossom are opening – as documented by the 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’…

    These more and more frequent instances of racially motivated violence in areas like Milwaukee look like a consequence of community organizing.

  • BarbaAZ

    Gee, is “Jimbo” somebody like, say, James Johnson and his 100, paid, sickie-pants bloggers set up by the WH to infect Conservative sites with obama propaganda?

    I hope they all got a really bad case of chiggers!

  • Contessa61

    Everyone must have some skin in the game. I Agree. Let’s start with the 9% that pay no federal income tax.

  • Contessa61

    ERROR…should say 49%

  • lynched1

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

    So congress and the White House will be cutting back on their largess?

    Why is it the welfare crowd never have to have skin in the game and give up some of their cash to share the sacrifice?

  • Kissmygrits

    No pictures? With all those H’wood types there with all their smart phones, you know there’s gotta be pictures. Just wait for them to show up on the pages of US and People mags. The WH claims the big O’s paid for the party themselves, don’t make me laugh when have they ever paid for something.
