Sequester? Good Times still Rolling at the White House

by Keith Koffler on April 3, 2013, 8:52 am

The tours for the public may be canceled, but the fun continues at the White House, where President Obama and First Lady Michelle are indulging in exclusive entertainment even as furloughs begin to hit the White House itself.

Tuesday evening, the Obamas were treated to a viewing of the movie “42,” which chronicles the life of Jackie Robinson, watching it in the White House theater with the film’s cast and crew in attendance. Earlier, in the day, the White House added an official gloss to the event by throwing in a “42 Film Workshop” for kids in the State Dining Room featuring Harrison Ford and Jackie Robinson’s widow, Rachel Robinson.

And next Tuesday, the Obamas will be seated in the East Room for a command performance “celebrating” Memphis soul music, an event will feature megastars Justin Timberlake and Queen Latifah.

Also performing will be Alabama Shakes, William Bell, Steve Cropper, Al Green, Ben Harper, Cyndi Lauper, Joshua Ledet, Sam Moore, Charlie Musselwhite, Mavis Staples, with Booker T. Jones as music director and band leader.

The president hasn’t let the sequester interfere with his entertainment on the links either, resuming his regular golf game last weekend with a round at the Joint Base Andrews course.

And the Obamas each already have had two vacations this year. Meanwhile, the Office of Management and Budget, a wing of the White House, will soon start furloughing employees.

Sequesters, it would seem, are for little people.

In an age that the moocher-class voted him in a 2nd term, it's no wonder the media is not competent enough to report on the actual state of the country.

How is it that all of the 99%'ers who voted him in don't seem to care that he is a full fledged 1%'er himself? He literally is, one of the people they so hate. It's a mystery the likes of which no one has ever seen before.

This is just another example of the hypocrisy of the right. Every President travels, every President takes vacations and every president spends MONEY !!! Bush JUST SPENT MORE !!!
Bush spent over a third of his entire presidency on vacation. Reagan and Nixon both had a "Western White House". But they attack President Obama for "extravagance" at the drop of a hat. If he ordered large fries, instead of medium fries ....they'd probably want to launch Congressional hearings!

Kiss it, loser. And try a little research before spewing your crap. Neither of the Bush presidents are even on the list of 10 wealthiest presidents. Your buddy Bubba, however, is. Note the majority on the list happen to be dems.

Once again, you have no point. Don't you ever get tired of being so wrong, all the time? You get nothing right!

So, fake black boy, I'm sure as far as Hilary is concerned, Bill is dead. But as far as I know, Billy "I never had sex with that girl" is still alive hahaha

One thing that's glaring on this list, however, is neither Bush is on the list. Funny that you didn't bring that up, fake black boy hahahah.

Description of Red Herring

A Red Herring is a fallacy in which an irrelevant topic is presented in order to divert attention from the original issue. The basic idea is to "win" an argument by leading attention away from the argument and to another topic. This sort of "reasoning" has the following form:

1.Topic A is under discussion.
2.Topic B is introduced under the guise of being relevant to topic A (when topic B is actually not relevant to topic A).
3.Topic A is abandoned.

This sort of "reasoning" is fallacious because merely changing the topic of discussion hardly counts as an argument against a claim.

And....

Description of Ad Hominem

Translated from Latin to English, "Ad Hominem" means "against the man" or "against the person."

An Ad Hominem is a general category of fallacies in which a claim or argument is rejected on the basis of some irrelevant fact about the author of or the person presenting the claim or argument. Typically, this fallacy involves two steps. First, an attack against the character of person making the claim, her circumstances, or her actions is made (or the character, circumstances, or actions of the person reporting the claim). Second, this attack is taken to be evidence against the claim or argument the person in question is making (or presenting). This type of "argument" has the following form:

1.Person A makes claim X.
2.Person B makes an attack on person A.
3.Therefore A's claim is false.

The reason why an Ad Hominem (of any kind) is a fallacy is that the character, circumstances, or actions of a person do not (in most cases) have a bearing on the truth or falsity of the claim being made (or the quality of the argument being made).

God Slew. You are so boring.

When changing the topic fails, one can always fall back on yelling racist!! Loud and often.
