Obamas' Serving $100 a Serving Wagyu Steak at White House Parties
I heard Lou Dobb on CNN say last week that the President & Michelle Obama were serving wagyu steak (and other delicacies) at parties at the White House that costs $100.00 a serving. And they are partying a lot.
At least one party included the Washington elite legislators. Excerpt from two articles posted below: This quote sums it up for me: "It is an outrage for Barack and Michelle Obama to party on, as Rome burns. It's like throwing a party at a funeral," he said. There is a link to a poll in which you can vote on this issue at the very end of this email. Obama's comment line is 1-202-456-1111. I think we should keep it hot.
Michell Malkin writes: "President Obama, celebrated by his liberal media admirers for a miraculous ability to groove with the common man, hasn’t yet caught on to the new age of individual austerity. As always, he talks a good game of “personal responsibility” and “sacrifice.” But while penny-pinching Americans head to Sonic Drive-Ins for $1 everyday value meals or stay at home for cheap cube-steak dinners (sales of the inexpensive meat are up 10 percent), the White House serves up high-grade Wagyu beef to congressional revelers. The luxury item was on the menu for the bipartisan stimulus dinner in January and was also served up at the governors’ dinner hosted at the White House two weeks ago. (In another article she says, Yeah, “wagyu steak.” $100 per serving delicacy. I had to look it up, too.) http://michellemalkin.com/2009/03/06/cube-steak-americans-vs-the-wagyu-beef-white-house/
White House nightlife under investigation
As WND reported this week, Freedom Watch is seeking information from the federal government on who had input into bailout legislation and whether they got anything in return.
Klayman said the reports of the partying at the White House, "with the likes of Steve Wonder and other high priced entertainment stars," will be the focus of document requests being submitted to the General Services Administration. The requests will seek to determine how much taxpayer money is being used.
"Barack and Michelle Obama have been throwing taxpayer funded parties nearly every night with their 'friends' and supporters, with Michelle Obama even exhorting them not to 'break' White House property," Klayman's announcement said.
"This party atmosphere sends the wrong message to the American people. As the Obama-Clinton crowd party on, the American people are suffering greatly," Klayman said.
"It was right to criticize corporate execs for using taxpayer bailout money on bonuses and corporate junkets. In the face of this criticism, it is an outrage for Barack and Michelle Obama to party on, as Rome burns. It's like throwing a party at a funeral," he said.
