So Lets Throw A Party And Not Tell Anyone About It

Updated on January 10, 2012

Oh What Fun!!!

Found Under The Radar

Those who know my political beat know that quite often I have a tendency to write about things I see flying under the radar. In this particular instance I caught a brief glimpse of this party and then suddenly started getting more than a brief glimpse. You see, I'm a fiscal conservative and a long time member of the Tea Party Movement and it fries my frog legs whenever I discover some of the excesses that Obama and his blushing bride seem to love to take advantage of. It usually involves the spending of our tax payer dollars like a drunken sailor on shore leave. This is a case in point.

Anyone Seen That Pesky White Rabbit Around The White House?

Lets flash back to 2009 if you can remember that far back, around the Halloween time frame. What was Obama doing in 2009 while the jobless situation turned from bad to worse? He was wasting close to a trillion dollars of our tax money on a supposed stimulus program that only amounted to a glorified "Jobs For Friends" fiasco. He wants to do that again by the way. He was also in the process of ramming Obamacare down the public's maw even though in his SOTU address previously that year he said he was going to put that on the back burner and concentrate on job creation. The only jobs the federal government was creating at the time were federal jobs which produce nothing but a larger bureaucracy. Remember that you need to watch what Obama DOES and not what he SAYS.

So as the nation was in the crash and burn mode he and Moochelle evidently decided that for Halloween they were going to throw an "Alice In Wonderland" party right there in the People's House involving the people's money. What a gig those two seem to have going. The mystery to me was how in the heck they pulled it off without the Lame Stream Media reporting the event. Not really a mystery though considering he is their "Anointed One." The co-hosts of the party were Johnnie Depp and Tim Burton from the Hollywood crowd. It is now being reported how "over the top" this affair was and that Obama demanded no press coverage. I've also been reading where some of his top aides advised Obama that this sort of thing going on in the People's House wasn't the best idea that he and Moochelle had ever come up with.

Go Ask Alice...

See any DC School Children Here?

So how is it finally coming out? A New York Times reporter of all people is letting the cat out of the proverbial bag. Maybe the Times is beginning to see what the rest of us have seen for quite a while now. The correspondent, Judy Kantor, outlines the details in the book The Obamas. She states that the Whine House officials kept this thing wrapped tight because they were a bit nervous about how "voters" would react to the Obama's excesses. Seems like a no brainer to this frog.

When excerpts hit the news, the British press, much sharper than ours it seems, started banging away at their keyboards. They were wondering how such a lavish party wouldn't be an embarrassment for the Obama's in an age when austerity with our tax dollars should have been the watch word. Along comes the usual Whine House denial that the party was no secret. If it wasn't then how come this is just now popping up in 2012? The British Telegraph had this to say about this soiree: "Depp greeted guests in the costume he had worn in a film version of the Lewis Carroll story released around the same time by (Tim) Burton - the film's director - who was given carte blanche to transform the state dining room into a Mad Hatter's tea party." Kind on the LalaLand side of life if you ask me. And this was no secret? Yeah, right!

Kantor, the author of said book, puts it this way: "White House officials were so nervous about how a splashy, Hollywoodesque party would look to jobless Americans or their representatives in Congress, who would soon vote on health care, that the event was not discussed publicly and Burton and Depp's contributions went unacknowledged." What a slight to Depp and Burton and a direct slap in the chops to the American tax payer.

Brace yourself, the best is yet to come. Here's the Whine House's spin now. Whine House spokesman Eric Shultz says Kantor has it all wrong. The party was thrown as a benefit for local Washington DC school kiddies and military families. Does any one happen to be in possession of the guest register for the event. Why would senior aides be nervous about the event even coming down in the first place if that were the case?

Barak and Moochelle are quite a pair now, aren't they? Let the good times roll...

As Always,

The Frog Prince

How About Here?

      So sad to hear all this information of how our president and his lady enjoys spending our money when so many people are going without food and losing their homes...I hope the people who think Obama is doing this country justice takes the blinders off their eyes and see's the truth to what he is doing to our wounderful country...this country was blessed by God...we have been blessed with a freedom that many countries wished they had...but little by little Obama and his cronies are taking this away from us....PLEASE WAKE UP BEFORE IT IS TO LATE !!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Why if one didn't know better they'd think the Obams were just a family of Nabobs from La Gorce Island South Florida.

      I wasn't invited, but then again I wouldn't go if I was. What galls me is that (I assume) I have to pay for all this. If Obama wants to hold lavish parties and take $4 million vacations on his own dime, that's his business. But why do I have to pay for it?

      The big party that I want to throw, Frog, is the one that celebrates Obummy and company leaving the White House, for good by the end of this year.

      Wayne - He does have a tendency to spend lavishly with other people's money. I'm sure he feels "entitled" to do so. That's the liberal mindset. Spend away as long as it isn't your money that is being spent recklessly.

      Barack lives just like "Baby Doc" did down in the people's expense and real good too! Word on the street has it that his household finances were in total shambles when he gained his Senate seat in the state of Illinois. That's no surprise but certainly a good indicator that we didn't need his lack of skills anywhere near our tax revenue. WB

      poetvix - I will remain vigilant but then, I always have.

      Fred - I actually ran across this first in the British press and then found out that the Lame Stream Media wasn't reporting too widely on these types of shenanigans. Gee, I wonder why? NOT!

      Frog, voted up and awesome.

      I heard about this party and was dumbfounded.

      Why isn't there more outrage about this?

      I can't say what I really want to say about how I feel about Obozo and his wife because it is too rude.

      You get the picture.

      Well done!

      Jim, I gotta quit reading your stuff late at night, last thing before winding down. No way to set myself up for Happy Dreamland....

      Love that you dug this one out, though. I'd missed it entirely (but then again, the NY Times isn't on my regular reading list--maybe it should be.

      Voted Up and Head-Shaking.

      OK, enough is enough. I'm all for scaryboo time parties. I have thrown a few humdingers myself, even one where peeps hung off scaffolding we erected to get a better view of the live band playing on my front deck. The point is I paid for it, every cent. I don't mind him shaking a tail feather in any style he wants, as long as he's footing the bill! Why in Hades don't we, the people, itemize all expenses that we should not be paying and send him a flipping bill? For that matter, why have not our other elected officials already done it?

      I find it ironic they chose the theme mentioned as I can see them both as the King and Queen of hearts and we all know what she liked to do to anyone who would dare suggest she pay for anything!

      Sir Frog, I commend you once again. You better get hopping now before the Queen looks your way, just kidding... couldn't help it.

      I vote and this I voted up! Rock The Vote 2012.

      Will - Amazing that the ranch was owned by the Bush's. All of Obama's real estate holdings are in other people's names. Why?

      The same leftist media that complained bitterly about Bush's relatively low cost vacations to his Crawford ranch, are suddenly silent about the extravagant events and outings of the Obama's.

      The hypocrisy is overwhelming.

      BTW, why aren't Cindy Sheehan and her pink posse camped outside the White House, complaining about Obama's war-mongering drone attacks and air support over Libya?

      Voted this one up and interesting. I saw something lately on Yahoo about a party they recently threw. New Year's, I believe? Yes, they don't seem to think much of those suffering without jobs, now do they? They are too quick to spend our hard earned tax dollars and frivolously, I might add. Good hub! Thanks for letting us know.

      Jim - They flew the dog back and it was in the news, though not the Lame Stream Media type. Next up will be when he requests another 1.6 trillion be added to the federal deficit when Congress comes back to roost and root this month. What the hell happened to the spending cuts and all the BS that came to surface about using the ax that is needed?

      Nice work Jim. Speaking of the Hawaii vacation; Their dog went to Hawaii with Mike and the kids remember? The dog was in the picture with Obama back in Washington a day later. Either they've bought a doggie double, or they flew the freaking dog back for the photo shoot. Yep, these are some of the most in your face arrogant folks I've seen. Bush's dog, what was his name .. Barney? That was one mean little k-9. Remember he bit the President? Wow, that's a dog with balls without balls. I admire something that weighs 11 pounds, says screw the Seceret Service and goes Fondue on an American President. I'm thinking Barney was pissed about Bush's spending. Can you imagine how he feels about Obama's?!! It'd have been cool if Barney came to that party, had a couple of Whisky Sours, and mauled that little White House mut. Well, one can dream.

      Good reporting. I heard about this party and it is yet again another slap in the face to the American people. I also heard that it was Michelle who wanted this latest lavish Hawaii vacation and that Obama wanted to go to Camp David. She threw a fit and off to Hawaii they went on separate planes. Cutting back and tightening belts and going into social service careers is just for us, the commoners. The good life is for the elite in the White House. p interesting and awesome.
