    It's obvious that this dinner was to pay off Calderon who got involved in american domestic politics to further the Obama regime's agenda.

    This democrat party event should be paid for by the DNC but it's not.

    Not only that, but Obama refuses to tell the taxpayers' how much this democrat event cost the taxpayers. It's been estimated to be about half a million dollars.

    Tonight's State Dinner: Beyonce, Ceviche and Please, no Salahis - Political Hotsheet - CBS News)

    For tonight's dinner, White House chef Cristeta Comerford recruited the services of Chicago-based chef, author and restaurateur Rick Bayless.


    "Heading into the WH for another full day of creation," he tweeted this morning before heading to the final hours of preparation in the White House kitchen. "Got my fingers crossed there are no hitches."


    The owner of Frontera Grill and the host of the PBS series "Mexico - One Plate at a Time," Bayless brings culinary expertise to the preparations. And he's gone out of his way to lavish praise on the other members of the White House kitchen staff.


    Who pays for the costs of the State Dinner? We taxpayers, naturally. The money comes from the "K Fund," a special line of appropriations administered by the Office of the Chief of Protocol at the State Department. Former Chief of Protocol Don Ensenat once told me he never learned why it was called the "K Fund." The cost of a State Dinner is not disclosed. Experts surmise it could run as high as half a million dollars.


    There were 200 guests.

    This was the menu.

    Jicama with Oranges, Grapefruit, and Pineapple

    Citrus Vinaigrette

    Ulises Valdez Chardonnay 2007 "Russian River"


    Herb Green Ceviche of Hawaiian Opah

    Oregon Wagyu Beef in Oaxacan Black Mole

    Black Bean Tamalon and Grilled Green Beans

    Herrera Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 "Seleccion Rebecca"


    Chocolate-Cajeta Tart

    Toasted Homemade Marshmallows

    Graham Cracker Crumble and Goat Cheese Ice Cream

    That led to the death of al Qaida terrorists .

    This was a blatant waste of taxpayer money to show off to his friends.

    Also how does he get away from not being required to tell taxpayersvhow much his jet setting cost them?

    the cost was small change to Obama to be able to shit on any American that wants our immigration laws enforced, This way his way of telling anyone who disagrees with his policies that he does not give a shit what you want or think. you will have amnesty like it or not!!! This is a repeat of the healthcare bill.

    All it will take is a FOIA request. Too bad, so sad for Barry Soetoro. If he expects Americans to pay for his (expensive) tastes, to pick up his bar tab and the dinner tab for all his buddies, then he's gonna be forced to share with us exactly how much of our money he spent.

    This isn't like his birth certificate where he can play games and semantics and hide the facts he dreads seeing the light of day.

    What a farking dumbass he is! :cuckoo:
