The economy is in the toilet...

but the president had time for a few fundraisers last Thursday.
[...]Obama took in a projected $2.5 million from donors, mainly Wall Street financial types, who paid $35,800 for the chance to dine and hobnob with the POTUS.
[...]Obama sandwiched the dinner between an appearance at an LGBT event and a showing of the musical "Sister Act" on Broadway. Want to know what they ate?

What a disgrace, we can't afford $1 cheezeburgers, and this crook is raking it in and eating like royalty every freaking day. I'm gonna go cry and or puke now.
2012 can't come fast enough.

PS: hope your toe is better, Adrienne.

Can you explain to me what a Wall Street type is doing giving money to an idiot tanking our economy?

Adrienne said...

Randy - Baaaaaaacoooooooooon!!!!!!!Bacon! Bacon! Bacon! Be still my beating heart...

Adrienne said...

Bunni - I.Can. Not. Stand. Those. People. Pigs (no offense to any pigs intended or implied.)

Adrienne said...

Odie - there is not much of anything that I can explain anymore. The world is down the hole with Alice IYKWIMAITYD.

Obviously there were no children present because they are not allowed by the First Woman to eat such unhealthy food.

You don't understand, Adrienne, austerity is for the little people. The Obamas deserve to eat that kind of food, to jet around on the public dime, and then to lecture the rest of us about how we eat and how we travel. They really are just better than us, as we bitterly cling to our religion, our livelihoods, and our quaint little customs.

No bacon on that menu? Isn't worth the time, and definitely not the money.
