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.

Responsibility lies with both the UN and Hamas, and better commitments should have been demanded from both parties in the ceasefire.

But the world is forever challenging our Jewish principle and our practices.

If this is how we play the game, we will lose. By that I mean we will lose everything.

Reportedly, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates have formed a bloc that seeks to counter Islamist influence in the Middle East.

One wonders how the IDF could be expected to so quickly determine the facts.

While there is no formula that will work for everyone, there are some strategies that if followed carefully and consistently can help our children – and us – gain the most from the upcoming school year.

We risk our lives to help those who do what they can to kill to our people .

Obama is transparent, if you read his oracular signs with the right key.

ISIS has no intention of “marching on” Baghdad. The Sunni affiliates of ISIS are going to disrupt life there.

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

The Obama administration wants to take over the short-term financial services industry.

The topics are “The Reagan Strategy,” and the “Iran Time Bomb.”

Maybe it’s a tad undiplomatic to announce it publicly before telling Israel’s prime minister about it?
