Obama sure is a class act. Remember when he gave those crappy gifts to the queen and Prime Minister Brown? Guess what he donated to the exclusive private school his daughters go to?
Each year, Sidwell Friends, the tony school where the Obamas have enrolled their daughters, holds a fundraising auction.
The auctions raise big money as parents try to outdo each other both in bidding and prizes donated. This year, eyebrows have been raised — as evidenced by the news report headlined “Obamas prove stingy with school auction.”
When the children of presidents attend Sidwell Friends, expectations for the auction run high. When Chelsea Clinton was a student, her father agreed to play a round of golf with the highest bidder, while Chelsea herself offered babysitting services. Chelsea continues to raise money for the auction by donating lunches and dinners for high bidders. What have the Obamas donated? Why, signed pictures of themselves, of course! The winning bidders will receive a copy of Rolling Stone signed by President Obama and an autographed copy of Michelle Obama’s Vogue cover.
The “donation gap” has not gone unnoticed. “There were expectations that they might donate something more personal, like the Clintons did … Lots of people were disappointed,” said an auction source.
What cheap egotist.
Tomorrow he has yet another press conference during prime time, which he seems to do a lot. It costs the networks millions in ad revenue when he does it. Fox finally said no mas. My guess is, they will have better ratings tomorrow.
