Everyone Must Sacrifice… Obamas Hid Extravagant “Alice in Wonderland” Bash From Public

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.

The Obamas hid an extravagant Halloween “Alice in Wonderland” party from the American public for fear of creating the wrong impression during the worst recession since the Great Depression.

More pictures here.

The Telegraph reported:

The White House covered up an Alice in Wonderland-themed Halloween party staged by film director Tim Burton and actor Johnny Depp for fear of creating the wrong impression during a recession, a new book on the Obamas has claimed.

Depp greeted guests in the costume he had worn in a film version of the Lewis Carroll story released around the same time by Burton, who was given carte blanche to transform the state dining room into a Mad Hatter’s tea party in “his signature creepy-comic style”.

A long table was “set with antique-looking linens, enormous stuffed animals in chairs, and tiered serving plates with treats like bone-shaped meringue cookies”, writes New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor in The Obamas, which is released on Tuesday. Fruit punch was served in blood vials at the bar, she adds.

George Lucas sent Chewbacca from Star Wars to mingle with invited guests, who included the Obamas’ two daughters Malia and Sasha and friends, the children of White House staff members and military families.

The White House press corps was allowed to report on more modest festivities earlier that day for Washington-area school children, but did not release details of the more glamorous festivities that occurred later for what was the Obamas’ first Halloween in office in 2009.

    My Dear Leader… NOT!

    I wonder what else went on at that Halloween Party.

    Many Halloween Parties are creepy through and through, especially in certain liberal precincts.

    More like the press hid it from the public at the request of the King. Like the LATimes and Obama-Khalidi video.

    “Everyone hobbit must sacrifice for the greater good… Everyone hobbit must have some skin in the game…
    The One to rule them all, The One to find them,
    The One to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
    In the Land of Barackdur where the Shadows lie.” -Obama the Deceiver

    Must be part of that whole new “transparency” thing, huh?

  • Red 5

    And the MSM and their crack staff missed this one too. Like it was a top secret CYOPS operation or something. I’d like to see their excuse on how they missed this. It amazes me that people still defend this admin.

  • tallflagal

    Just a “kids” party? Well when was the last time I had one for $80.000.00? Where was the press? Who thinks this OK even in good times? Guess that’s why they had to hide it. What else are we not sharing? November can’t come fast enough, what a waste of money!

    George Bush or any other Conservative couldn’t FART in the privacy of his own bathroom without it being front page news and looped 24/7 on all the cable outlets, yet these dirtbags can throw a perverted party on steroids on taxpayer money and…….crickets from the media….make that, COVER UP by the media…disgusting…and NO Christmas unless all the ornaments on the “KWANZA Holiday Tree” have OBAMA worship on them….sickening.

    …and the horse they ALL rode in on……

    This will surely come back to haunt them. Oh, I forgot, we no longer live in a sane world…..

    Zero has skin in the game. It’s just not the same one he wants to force us into playing.

    THAT is the problem!
    Who allows the press to “report”.
    What happened to our free & investigative press?

  • bear

    Misleading title: “obamas hid…. .” In fact, the ENTIRE lefty, anti-American political/media complex conspired to hide the outrageous perversity of the current administration’s continuing wholesale LOOTING of the treasury from the whole world, while still bleating about Sarah Palin/Nancy Reagan/Laura Bush wardrobes.

    The mantra of “we’re for the little guy” sounds like the same crapola as “religion of peace” and “we support Israel.”

    “Who allows the press to “report”.”

    A tin pot dictator.

    And that’s what we have.

    Prez for Life Hussein.

    Is he or is he not part of the 99%? 😆 Wish like all the other billionaires and millionaires in Washington they could leave a crumb for those who are having difficulties keeping their heads above water.

    Must be nice to preach to the millions every day that this nation’s job creators have too much, so they are the ones Obama wants to destroy. Far be it from Obama to make a sacrifice or Michelle to do all her shopping at a thrift store. Wandering if your 15 year old car will start so you can go to that job that is beneath your education. And then after graduating you can even find work other than flipping burgers. Do the elitists like Obama and Michelle care for Americans other than a hour in a Soup kitchen twice a year.

    He is president and he is of course allowed to have a party every now and then but it flies in the face of all his speeches on tightening OUR belts, while 90 rounds of golf, trips two time a year to Hawaii, then gallivanting to Spain and Martha Vineyard.

    I wish someone in the Media this week during the press conference would ask Obama what are his sacrifices that he has made.

    Never lost a home, has always had someone drive him, food is plenty, has a job, (NOT DOING TO WELL AT IT), and then he has the audacity to tell us to sacrifice more. The only thing that I can give up now is my blood. We have given our sweat and tears, we are the people who obey the law, make a budget, pay higher taxes every year so Washington can get its fix.

    I was reading about this little affair this morning.
    The book/movie/mini series/x rated film, that will come out of this ridiculous presidency is going to be good.
    The funniest part (because the majority of it is not funny) is that the liberal media is touting this book as all about what a support Michelle is to her husband.
    Here’s the headline from The (zero) Oregonian
    “First Lady adapts to role learns to use clout”
    Page 1. I kid you not.

    I saw that today. Obama is like a partner with Sony and all the Hollywood elites love him.

    It the media’s eyes Obama and Michelle are Camelot rebirth of two great historic figures. Barf

    Remarkable how much more the Obamas have in common with Czar Nicholas II than they do with Obama’s idol Lenin. Extravagant costume parties, skinny dipping, imported food rarities, celebrities and other significations of radical excess while the Russian people starved.

    Barry might want to consult his history book; the real revolutionary Lenin, who wasn’t a privileged elite with a faux populist masquerade, didn’t particularly take favor to the Romanov family.

    uhh, no I think they covered it up out of fear of creating the right impression.

    It shows the wasteful redundancy of government spending…like using 2 planes to fly out on a vacation.
