Tonight Marks Tenth “Command Performance” for the Obamas

Tonight’s special White House “celebration” of Memphis soul music marks the tenth time President and Mrs. Obama have been treated to an exclusive East Room “command performance” of American music featuring major stars, past and present.

Obama blues performanceWhile the performances are televised and celebrate the nation’s culture, some may wonder whether during an era of soaring deficits it is wise to stage what are also in effect private parties for the first couple.

And with this evening’s event, the performances are officially part of the “sequester-free zone” at the White House. As is well known, the daily White House tours did not make the cut.

The Obamas suspended the performances during the campaign season, either because they were too busy or because they thought average voters might not be pleased by the sight of them partying it up as unemployment continues to rage. The last “In Performance at the White House” was a May 8, 2012 event celebrating of the music of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. The show included performance by Sheryl Crow, Mike Myers and Stevie Wonder.

Tonight’s extravaganza will feature Justin Timberlake, Queen Latifah, and Cyndi Lauper along with a cadre of old blues and soul stars.

Other White House performances have centered on the blues, country music, jazz, and Motown and have featured megastars like Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, B.B. King, and James Taylor.

    1. When someone like these people give you a reason to hate, its the very reason why we have that word in our English language
      to express it. Even so I hate them as well, its a rarity I hate someone, but here, its a given……

        1. Can you feel the pain of the born alive abortion victims that soetero feels so passionately about killing?

          Makes his disgusting stunts using dead children and his plea that if “even one child is saved” ( by depriving us of our right to have and use guns) seem, I don’t know, PHONY.

          1. And since no one is actually trying to deprive anyone of their right to have and use guns, your response seems, I don’t know, DISINGENUOUS.

  1. And yet, the swarms of “low information” voters care not, as long as the “Gimme dat!” party still sends the SSDI checks, the EBT cards, the SNAP vouchers etc. We are lost. Democracy cannot survive an ignorant populace.

    “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
    Abraham Lincoln

    1. And as long as people are allowed to draw unemployment benefits for two years, and all of the other benefits, they’ll sit on their butts and do nothing except vote for the Democrats who are keeping them in slavery.

      1. Just another wasteful night at the black house of dark-filled spending.
        Someday they will have to meet their maker and explain their reasons
        of destroying a great country. At some point we will need to take this position away from the dictator otherwise we will hit a point of no return.
        “Hell” their is no reason maybe to rent the new A. Hitchcock, its playing for free at are local White [Black] House as I and we speak.

        1. Y’know, I’ve noticed it’s been a lot more difficult to “rent the new “A. Hitchcock,” too. I could be wrong, but maybe it has something to do with the fact that the man died thirty three years ago. But on the bright side, you spelled the word “dictator” right, so there’s that.

    1. You have that right. the White House Aristocracy is living it up BIG Time, and the heck with everyone who is paying for it.

  3. This is an outrage! The nerve! (okay, where is the Drudge Bus headed to next?! I’ve got plenty of pent up petty hatred to spew!)

  4. yes i think that you are correct, during the campaign it would have shown that he has a total disreguard for any budy but himself, and his wants.
    now he has the people fooled into reelecting him now it is piss on you i want

  5. I read this and threw up! There are people in the United States who are literally starving to death while the White House “fiddles!” Damn! I threw up again!

  7. partying at the White House while White House tours are closed?

    just another fine example of Progressive politics.

    and GOP just sits there….

  8. The “magician” keeps partying on while putting the hurt on everyone else. DO as I say and not as I do as the motto goes. This president is more about abusing the office of the President and “Fundamental change” and yet nobody sees it. The media, is 100% under the left wing and protecting him. What ever happened about reporting the news and holding our leaders accountable!!!

    1. The guy you’ve created is certainly a lot more dramatic than the reality version. Can’t wait for the next chapter.

      1. Orphice Drank the KoolAid –

        I would like to present you with the Stubbie Award for posting. It is quite similar to the Shortie Award presented to Michelle. (Both awards are for “leaving one not quite satisfied”.)

        Please feel free to move on, you annoying little twit.

        1. Ad hominem name calling is such fun, isn’t it?! I certainly neither mean to upset you, nor slow the flow of forced outrage. Keep up the good work. It served you so well during the last election.

  9. Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists,
    Marxists and Obama supporters, et al: We have stuck together since
    the late 1950’s
    for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process
    has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for
    many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this
    relationship has clearly run its course.

    Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on
    what is right for us all, so let’s just end it on friendly terms. We can smile
    and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

    Here is a our separation agreement:

    –Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each
    taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our
    two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be
    relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other
    assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

    –We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.

    –You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.
    –Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA
    and the military.

    –We’ll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and the coal mines, and you
    can go with wind, solar and biodiesel.

    –You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell. You are, however,
    responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three
    of them.

    –We’ll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies,
    Wal-Mart and Wall Street.

    –You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps,
    homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens.

    –We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s and rednecks.

    –We’ll keep Bill O’Reilly, and Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .

    –You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to
    invade and hammer places that threaten us.

    –You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our
    way of life are under assault, we’ll help provide them security.

    –We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values.

    –You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness
    and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be
    paying the bill.

    –We’ll keep the SUV’s, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can
    take every Volt and Leaf you can find.

    –You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.

    –We’ll keep “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and “The National Anthem.”

    –I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute “Imagine”, “I’d Like to Teach the
    World to Sing”, “Kum Ba Ya” or “We Are the World”.

    –We’ll practice trickle-down economics and you can continue to give
    trickle up poverty your best shot.

    –Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our history, our name and our

    Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like-minded
    liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete.
    In the spirit of friendly parting, I’ll bet you might think about which
    one of us will need whose help in 15 years.



    Law Student and an American

    P.S. Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin & Charlie Sheen,
    Barbara Streisand, &
    (Hanoi) Jane Fonda with you.

    P.S.S. And you won’t have to press 1 for English when you call our country.

    1. Terrific post! You did; however, forget to say we’ll keep Texas, Alaska, Louisiana, Alabama and the South. They can have New Yuck, ILLinois and Californicate and all the stupid Blue states. They can also keep all the Gays, Lesbians, Cross Dressers and Transgender freaks. We’ll keep those who love this country and the way of life we had BFO (Before Obama).

  10. WOW Once again smoke and mirrors !!! He claims to be the peoples’ President and while He is livin large on our dime( the dime we struggle to pay in taxes every year) WE THE PEOPLE~ are having a hard time just surviving thru “THE CHANGE” If this is his idea of change he can have it. I am now convinced All Politicians LIE all the time, WAKE UP MR. OBAMA WE THE PEOPLE~~~~~~ Are mad as hell and this country is at the brink of all out revolt !!!

  11. I guess the next best thing to taking monthly 4 million dollar vacations must be to have concerts at the White House, while they feel your pain, of course.

  12. Out of touch and clueless….the most selfish and self centered president we’ve ever had or ever will have same goes with the wife of his.

  13. I am so disguisted with this President. He will continue to have a high rating because of the free bees that so many people get with him. But he is destroying our country and the morals of the American people. I can’t understand his gaul in having a celebration of any kind at the White House yet during this time of year so many people go to Washington on vacation. And what does Obama do? I am livid with his actions and those of his wife and children.. They don’t care about anything but themselves and he continues to lead this country by campaging methods. What a weak excuse for a President.

  14. we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it any more !!!!! You Mr, Obama are the worst kind of liar ~ You made us BELIEVE thins could get better if we worked together and quit complaining all the time (the essence of your we can change speeches) Well Mr President, the only things that changed is our having to tighten the fiscal belt, our having to deal a soaring cost of living while our pay check stays the same. While You, Mr. President continue the same arrogant behaviour as your preda sessers. Do you really think the American people are going to accept this from you. A lot of us saw you as this Nations savior~ thats what you portrayed yourself as. you lied to us JUST LIKE THE REST OF THEM ~~~ YOU ARE NO DIFFERENT as a matter of fact::: YOU ARE WORSE !!! YOU LIED SOOOO WELL YOU MADE A LOT OF US BELIEVE AGAIN …… NEVER again

  16. The Obama’s have no problems with spending millions of taxpayer dollars for their own gratification, yet they shut the doors of the WH to school children. Maybe it is better that school children not tour the WH until these two money grubbing morons are out. Don’t want to get the children soiled.

    NEVER expect a democrat to tell the truth.

  17. If an effective president, such as Reagan, wanted to do this, I would have no problem with it. When this lazy socialist megalomaniac wants to live it up on our dime…NO. I don’t like that. But the majority voted socialist, so I guess it’s going to be just one party and golf game after another all the way down the road to third world status.

  18. I sure am glad that this pesky sequester isn’t slowing down the partying at the White House……..

    I wonder how many millions this one is costing?

    1. Oh well, maybe we can just hallucinate it from the chemicals in our GMOs….or from the radiation of the wireless two-way transmitter spy meters being forced on our homes (at police gun point for those that resist) .. .. I never thought there’d be a time Americans would be robbed of basic human rights. What a nightmare our government has become…since Bush destroyed the constitution.

    2. Yeah, funny you should mention that. They did, you can and they’ve done them before. Don’t feel badly. I know you wanted to be all sarcastic and stuff. . and not just wrong.

  19. Just another wasteful night at the black house of dark-filled spending.
    Someday they will have to meet their maker and explain their reasons

    “Hell” their is no reason maybe to rent the new A. Hitchcock, its playing for free at are local White [Black] House as I and we speak.

  20. I remember hearing about regular Wednesday soirees the Obamas threw during the first administration. Are they doing so still?

  21. I wonder what the hell this is costing the pee-on s of America I can dam well bet this jerks aren’t doing this as a freebee. Our kids can’t visit the “PEOPLES HOUSE but this half breed bastard son of a white Trash communist muslim whore can thow a big bash at our expence and I’ll bet they didn’t pay for their flights in for this. When in the hell are these dumbass liberal slime going to wake up and fire this SOB and jail him for fraud ,then shoot his ass for treason and sedition

  22. You have to wonder if his ballot stuffing voting machine rigging useful idiots are feeling stupid yet? Like his hero Alfred E Neuman’s slogan goes “what sequester,we don’t have no stinking sequester here” and the ever popular “what me worry” I ‘ll just tax the rich and middle class some more. This is proof that elections have consequences.

  23. The ‘new’ America where children are not the responsibility of the parents,and belong to the collective government.Where carrying a Bible to school will result in suspension or expulsion,where the ‘leader’ of the ‘free’ world has made lying an art form.But dont even think of speaking out against abortion and the millions of children murdered in the name of convenience.You stupid,ignorant libs,dont you realize your lives are no more than a moment.Do you think your immorality will go un-noticed or unpunished.What is wrong with you people? And here we go again another fricken Command Performance sandwiched between golf and vacations. Libs….you have MUCH to answer for and be not deceived that dayof justice is coming to all of you,no one,and I mean no one will escape that day,

    1. People who refused to vote for McCain because he wasn’t conservative enough have to answer for their choices, too.

  24. My family is down to one meal a day (if THAT much). We do not qualify for any of the 79 freebie programs the Obamas advertise to illegals (which cost us BILLIONS per year).
    There, Moochelle and Hoosein fiddle away, eating only the best, on our tab, throwing it at us – while more and more lose their jobs – their homes – their lives…. How proud are we of these relentless pieces of lowlife?

    I for one would rather see someone go in – during the party and arrest their sorry azzsz for treason against our nation. That would the ultimate celebration for America.

  26. Well of course they are in the party mode again. Obama got re-elected, the weather is too miserable for golf, they are not scheduled for another vacation for a month or so, and the world is at peace with us (well except for Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, North Korea, parts of Africa and most of the Middle East). Another summer of recovery is almost upon us, employment gets lower every month (thanks to that new methodology), housing is stable (at least at the White House for another 4 years), and just look at that robust consumer confidence level.

    If they can just “party on” soon the final stages of Cloward-Piven will kick in, and so many citizens will never know what happend!

  27. Since it’s taxpayers money, aren’t we entitled to the costs of these parties? Where’s an invoice with all the charges including security we can’t afford?

    1. It’s been a while since I looked into this subject, but all presidents are given a budget for entertainment. However, no one forced this tin-eared idiot to spend the money in this manner.

      Heck, he could save the money. But, nooooooo. He wouldn’t look like a wanna-be rock star if he didn’t surround himself with the glitterati.

  28. Have we become a nation of fools?
    Our press is no longer objective.
    Our populace is no longer capable of critical thinking.
    We are too comfortable and complacent.
    The current government is an affront to the concept of America.
    I pray we recover.
