Can the Obama administration be anymore tone deaf? After pushing his $1.1 trillion Generational Theft Act of 2009 through the House last night, the White House apparently decided to throw itself a swank cocktail party. According to ABCs Jake Tapper, the menu included alcoholic beverages (vodka martinis are an Obama favorite, reportedly) and wagyu steak.
Yeah, wagyu steak. $100 per serving delicacy. I had to look it up, too.
On the heels of the most expensive inaugural celebration in American history and passage of a trillion-dollar spending binge that will saddle future generations with unprecedented debt, perhaps President Obama might consider cutting back on such indulgences.
Or is the White House exempt from shared sacrifice, Mr. President?
New era of responsibility?
Not so much.

As we head for a Depression, will he become another Marie Antoinette, who allegedly opined 'Let them eat cake' as her subjects were starving. We all know what happened to her, and if Obama continues down the road he is on, he could be 'headed' for a similar fate at the hands of irate taxpayers.
Rules for thee, not for he.
He transcends common sense, law and class.
I call it Stalin syndrome. He wasn’t Russian, he was Georgian, so he could care less what happened to the people.
Let them eat beans! Some people think that that’s all most of us will be eating by the end of this year
***First he keeps the thermostat up because he likes it warm in the oval office, now he has 100$ a lb steak at his parties.***
And people joked about LBJ turning off WH lights to keep the electric bill down.
I was thinking more along the lines of the pigs that took over the farm house.
This is totally disgusting.
All are equal — but some are more equal than others.
Can’t I just eat my wagyu steak?
I am curious. Does the White House have a budget for Presidential expenses (a set amount) or do they just cover whatever bills come in?
“Party like a Rock Star”....
And he wags his tongue at executives for their bonuses today.....
Did they serve Iranian caviar as well?
AlBore ‘won’t be havin’ none of that beef business’. The UK has set the precedent for that. NO MEAT for plebs....uh, I mean ‘patients’ on the NHS. ;)
In this he is like the Soviet Communists. The corrupt nomenklature used to live quite luxurously while telling the people that “coffee is not necessary for existence.” (comments by the Soviet newspapers on a coffee shortage).
Behold the Liberal’s false God Obama.
The Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:2-17 NKJV)
1 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.
2 You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My Commandments.
C’mon, everybody lighten up!
He’s “earned” this.
He’s “The One” giving 54% of the sheeple all of the Hope and spare Change they wanted.
BTW, I’ll have my beans medium rare...
I can think of another kind of animal.
First he keeps the thermostat up because he likes it warm in the oval office,
Wasn’t it he the one who was telling us that we’d all to turn our thermostats down a few degrees and properly inflate our tires..... Where is the LSM on this?
And it's all......
That was 100 Dollars ;er serving not per pound. A serving is a quarter to a half pound.
