Nouveau Sheesh: Obamas Preen for Hollande

USA-FRANCE-OBAMA

Could the Obamas be any more “let ‘em eat cake”?

What are we trying to prove here, with the transformation of the South Lawn of the White House – in February – into a Claude Monet-inspired water-lily garden for the state dinner to honor French premier Francois Hollande?  Seriously, the guy’s not even bringing a Sig-O: someone to at least look glamorous in a Dior gown and some bangles or something.  All we get to see is his beagle-like mug suspended over a tux.  How much is this costing the American taxpayer?

Equally to the point, why is Monet being used as the inspiration for a costly, over-the-top outdoors-in-the-dead-of-winter shindig, when it would be more appropriate – and a lot cheaper – to go with an iconic image from American art?

At LU, we’ve assembled some lower-budget suggestions.  Come up with your own, if you like.  The possibilities are endless.

    They are an embarrasment to our country.

  2. Fame is something anyone can have…. Add Me and I will show you how I became famous in less than 6 months using Facebook only ….The reason I am doing this free of charge is because I came up with a perfect mathematical algorithm that will allow anyone to become famous by using it….Now I’m going to use people like you to prove it…

  3. Charlie Hall says:

    Hollande is the most pro-American and pro-Israel French President since the 1950s. And he was also the prime target of the horrible "Day of Anger" protest that also featured vile expressions of anti-Semitism just a few weeks ago. We should be supporting and saluting him, not ridiculing the state dinner in his honor!

  4. Okay, I’m done following this site. These two people are an embarrassment to our country? Two college educated true Americans who started out below middle class? Two human beings who have stayed married to each other, no affairs, great parents, religious and kind? Speak in larger than two syllable sentences? You’d like to have George “you’re awesome Pope” back? This site does not support Jewish values. You make me ashamed of my people.
