Well, This Would Explain a Lot

The supermarket tabloids report, you decide:

President Barack Obama has blown $10 million on drunken White House parties, Washington insiders tell GLOBE. This week’s Special Report rips the lid off the Commander-in-chief’s outrageous antics, including boozy conga lines and dinners featuring $150-a-pound Japanese beef! It’s must reading for every American.

Washington insiders“? It’s probably crap, but I said the same thing when the Enquirer reported that John Edwards had a love child. And apparently, Nancy Pelosi’s been partying down at taxpayer expense, so . . .

    I am not buying the drunken parties. Everything is so press ridden at the White House that you could not get away with it. Although behind closed airplane doors Nancy Pelosi likes to tip back the drinks when she is flying those government jets she likes to demand ($100,000 bar tab is impressive for anyone). The press is not on those flight, or if they are they are tipping them back too.

    The White House Wagyu Kobe beef, however, is true (Michelle Malkin was all over that when it occurred), but to Obama’s limited credit I think it was domestic $150 a pound beef.

    Which president was it who served hot dogs to visiting royalty at the White House, and it was a huge hit? I am all for guests at the White House eating well. I recognize brats and potato salad will not work at every WH function. But the truth is American chefs make amazing food out of relatively inexpensive ingredients. I think it is prudent to stay away from outrageously decadent ingredients like Wagyu beef and caviar in a recession. Call me crazy like that.

    But of course, had George Bush done something like this, whoaaaaaa Nelly. The press would have gone hog wild. My guess George dug stuff like hamburgers and PB&Js.

    I remember seeing headlines in tabloids saying George W. Bush had fallen off the wagon and Laura was leaving him. If that was even remotely true, Daily Kos and MSNBC would have a field day. So I think this story is BS.

    This is believable.You can make some lulu decisions after drinking. The song “They all look better at closing time” could certainly apply to some of his decisions “Boy! That sounds really good; let’s do it. Have another round and we will put it together now. Have you ever woke up, and thought Oh! My God! How did that person get in my room? I’m stealing to post on American Freedom if I can figure out how to do it.

    I think this is big news…for a different reason.

    It signals a shift in what is permissible.

    Magazines with the Obamas on the cover or notoriously bad sellers…when covers like this start doing well…look out.
