$10 million in tax dollars spent on Obama’s silly parties while the Gulf fills up with oil.
All told, during the last seven weeks of spewing oil and rampant unemployment, he has frolicked and danced through three major White House music parties:
* The black-tie tent bash on the White House South Lawn after the state dinner for Mexico’s President Felipe Calderón, which featured singer Beyoncé.
* The Paul McCartney hootenanny — a night of tributes to the former Beatle, which featured the president himself scooting onto the dance floor to join the Jonas Brothers in the long “la-la-la” closing refrain of “Hey Jude.” (Plus, of course, McCartney serenading the first lady with “Michelle.”)
* The Ford Theater event — in which the president, taking a break from “kicking ass” on the oil spill, kicked back and relaxed to the song stylings of one-time “American Idol” winner Kelly Clarkson, among other B-listers.
It was one thing when the president launched his White House days with a round of Martini Wednesdays, Stevie Wonder concerts, conga-line dancing and Super Bowl parties. That was before the gushing oil and before the employment picture defied the Obama hope-and-change cures.
At least Jimmy Carter didn’t do that kind of stuff when he was impotently handling the Iranian Hostage crisis.
Guess what this Sunday’s cartoon will be about.
UPDATE: More evidence the WPE and the WCE have conspired to screw the US economy. All the congress and senate creatures who were on board for this need to be voted out with extreme prejudice.
