    Back in January 2009, Barack Obama told Americans that,
    “Everyone must sacrifice… Everyone must have some skin in the game.”

    Guests gather for the entertainment segment of a state dinner in honor of President of Mexico Felipe Calderon inside a party tent on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, May 19, 2010. (Reuters) In 2009 the Obamas spent over $10 million of taxpayer money on drunken White House parties.
    And, it doesn’t look like things are going to slow down anytime soon.
    The New York Post reported, via Free Republic.
    Last week’s jobs report tanked the stock market; the president took weeks to assert control of the oil spill that threatens doom on the Gulf Coast — but at the White House the Gatsby-like parties roll on as if happy days were here again.
    Just yesterday, President Obama held another fun-filled White House event, a picnic for Congress members, complete with hot dogs, cold beverages and a fire pit.
    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.
    Now it’s different. Now the president’s fascination with fun and parties in the midst of crisis has not only reinforced a feeling he’s out of touch, but has migrated down the chain of command.
    Last weekend, Vice President Joe Biden and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel held a “super soaker” squirt-gun party at the veep’s residence. Everybody ran around giggling and shooting squirt guns at each other. Members of the press covering Biden joined in, to their shame.
    And last Sunday, presidential spokesman Tommy Vietor and Obama speechwriter extraordinaire Jon Favreau, both 29 years old, were spotted at a Georgetown bar, stripped to the waist, playing a game of beer pong with a gang of bare-chested buddies. (This game involves throwing a ping-pong ball into cups of beer — loser drinks beer, winner drinks beer, everybody drinks beer.

    The day I'm under the kind of stress these people go through every day is the day I'll judge whether blowing off some steam when they can is out of line. Super soaker fight? I'm there. :D

    So, since the left are the party of 'let's follow Europe'..... how about you follow the UK's new Government's lead and stop spending money we don't have?

    Ohhhh, it's because their Government is led by Conservatives, right?

    Mo chara, the average American faces more stress in a day trying to pay their bills, keep their job, raise their kids, etc than these assholes have in a year. The reason: they don't give a shit about the country, they care only about power, money and influence.

    And how much do a few supersoakers or a night with a beer pong table really cost? That's stuff any broke college kid can and does do. And a night out at a concert once in a while is a sign of hating America? Uh-huh.

    Entertainment for a State dinner or other official diplomatic event is a different matter. Is honoring a foreign head of state or visiting muckety muck with entertainment (as has been traditional since the Dark Ages) out of line, or would we be embarrassing ourselves if we did not? Lighten up, like I said I have no room to judge.

    I think running a household, punching a time clock and raising kids hard as it can be at times is a little easier than running a country, executing two wars and dealing with the gang of criminals and thieves known as World Leaders. The day you try either of those things, let me know how it works for you. ;)

    Let 'em have a little fun when they can, it's healthy.

    :lol: Super soakers are the best.

    Of course Obama is not allowed to have any fun until he admits he wasn't born in this country.
