The world is on fire, and President Obama is partying with… Ricky Martin?

Tonight, a bevy of celebrities will overtake the White House for Música Latina: In Performance at the White House. The event, which will kick off at 7pm in the East Room, is in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, and will feature Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan, Natalie Cole, among others. As TheBlaze reported, the event is the second such concert held since the sequester went into effect and the 12th since President Barack Obama took office five years ago.

According to TheBlaze:

This is the 12th such concert since Obama has taken office. The last concert was on April 9 with a “Memphis Soul” theme. It will be the 52nd overall “In Performance at the White House” event, a program which began under President Jimmy Carter in 1978.

The White House said the concert is about “reflecting the influence of richly diverse Latino communities from throughout the Americas. The program celebrates the beauty and diversity of that music.” The concert will be broadcast Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. on PBS stations nationally and on Oct. 13 on the American Forces Network.

First Lady Michelle Obama will host a special daytime event at the White House for Washington, D.C. area student about the history of Latin music.

The April concert featured Al Green, Justin Timberlake and Queen Latifah.

“You may be having some real problems and some difficulties in your life, you know, and you might want somebody to pay attention to the economy and help free people up so they can create jobs,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Well, you’re not invited to this. But there is a really exciting night happening at the White House tonight. Natalie Cole, Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin are all going to be performing. They are among the list of stars that are going to be performing tonight at the White House. And we’ve got another gala happening at the White House.”

“But it’s only the 52nd overall performance at the White House,” Pat quipped. “Just the 52nd.”

“Who goes to these,” Glenn asked. “What is the point of these?”

“To have a good time, Glenn. Okay,” Pat explained sarcastically. “To have fun. To listen to enjoyable music by the likes of Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin, and Natalie Cole.”

“I just think it’s a disgrace honestly that we’ve only had 52 of these,” Stu added somberly. “Why haven’t we had 520 of them?”

All kidding aside, Glenn explained why these events in particular illustrate just how out-of-touch this administration has become.

“But the real part of the story is our president is leading the life of King Louie. The same life of being inside of his own little world had his own elite friends. They all come over to his house, they all have parties, they all get dressed up, they all listen to some music, all elitist stuff, and say everything is good in the country. And all of his expensive vacations,” Glenn said. “If you really cared, wouldn’t you just feel bad at some point? You talk about these people who are struggling all the time. Wouldn’t you feel bad? I mean, at least Jimmy Carter would carry his own luggage because he was like, ‘I’m going to be a man of the people.’ And he wasn’t opulent or anything else… It was a ridiculous thing to do, but at least he was trying to connect with people and he wasn’t living a double life. He really was that guy in real life. I disagree with everything he did, but he really was that guy.”

“This president tries to make you think he understands poverty and everything else. He doesn’t understand poverty. Look at the life that he’s leading. Look at what he’s doing. He’s living a movie star life, and he loves it,” he continued. “Nobody holds anybody accountable… These guys get so out of touch with the American people because nobody will criticize them. In the end the ones who are going to be the strongest are the ones who are being attacked all the time.  Because we’ve had to figure out who we are. What is it we really believe in? Because nobody wants to be a pariah. I mean, honestly if you could be popular or you could be a member of the TEA Party, which would you rather be? You’d rather be popular. But now which one are you? Because popularity means nothing. And you are smarter than that… This is not a glamorous gig. I don’t think anybody wants to be the person that they are right now. You don’t want to be the pariah.”

As Stu explained, President Obama has been able to capitalize on that very fact. “And this is how the president wins votes,” Stu said. “Because younger people who haven’t put all the thought into decades and decades of research are going to do what feels better. What’s easier, what looks good, what their friends do. And they wind up voting for this moron.”

“Right. And so they are just doing it because it feels good,” Glenn agreed. “And you also get the added benefit of a Ricky Martin concert.”

“If we could just get Ricky Martin on our side,” Stu concluded sarcastically, “then the tide would turn. Am I right on that?”

    Lol……….. yeah it’s somewhat like the pot calling the kettle “black”……

    Of course, to be fair to the uber fool, Glenn, I must note that the uber, uber fool who currently inhabits the Whitehouse has got to be the biggest spender of them all.

    Obama spends more tax-slaver money on transporting his dog up to Martha’s Vineyard than most amerikan serfs make working on the job during 5yrs of continuous, fulltime employment……..lol.

    Obama’s spending, golfing, partying and making-war habits remind me of one of those African, dictators thugs who live the high-life while the subjects starve.

    Well, if he HAS to spend the taxpayer’s money, I hope they, at least, make the concert as a

    postponed after the events at the Navy Yard came out.  But, no, had to be ”on the record.”

    Oh, Sam, it appears you don’t understand the mentality of this man very well.   You
    know it was BECAUSE he didn’t want to disappoint  M.O. and his guests who were
    invited.  Though, if they do postpone it, I would be surprised, but would applaud the move.  But, again, it just might be that he LOVES to spend taxpayer money!

    Perhaps someone will be able to get some photos/footage of tonight’s gala event and juxtapose it with the live coverage of today’s carnage and post it online.  This is like Obama’s indifference to American’s dying and his AWOL status as Command in Chief during Benghazi.  It’s like Obama’s playing golf when Putin is threatening us.  And I keep hoping that sooner or later something will enrage or click with Obamites.  Wishful thinking, I know.

    The grand obumhole said that he’d have more leeway when re-elected.  That ‘leeway’ must have been code for ‘vacations’, ‘parties’, ‘golfing’, and/or masturbating to his favorite pictures of his favorite fellow moslem brotherhoods.

    obama is certainly padding his pockets and certainly doesn’t mind taking his share.  He doesn’t care – about anything.  If the kids are starving in our own country or not.  He is looking out for himself and friends.  What has happened to MO.  Do not see her anymore.  I really don’t care, but I would like to know where the 600 million dollars went that he gave her to turn around school lunch rooms…. We all need to follow the money and it leads to obama and his friends. 

  • Jaamoose

    That you would consider Obama or Hillary “far left” speaks volumes about your understanding of politics. That you suggest a legal and constitutional voting process is starting a second civil war speaks to your vile character. To suggest such is the real anti-American act. As for how well that turns out, big talking yahoos thought the same before the first one.

    I will defend the old Socialist/Communists. Kruschev and Stalin had their state paid for daschas – but Carter had Plains, GA, LBJ his Texas ranch, Bush 41 had Kennebunkport, Bush 43 his ranch in Crawford. Reagan his ranch and Nixon his California home. Eisenhower’s summer white house was in Newport, RI at the same donated mansion every year (and next to the Naval Base for communications). I was there for the latter (and sang for his staff’s beach party).

    The big difference is that our current President is spending inordinately on his pleasures. Even the excesses of privilege that the Soviet leaders took pale beside the random travel to various locations that constitute his vacations. Kruschev’s dascha had permanent communications installations, as did GWB’s Crawford ranch (and all the others above).

    I don’t begrudge any President, or other national leader, the time away from the center of governance. It is a tough job. But the job goes with him, and so must all the communications and protective facilities. I doubt that Nikita’s security detail had to take hotel rooms when he went to his dascha – and GWB’s Secret Service detail were in cottages on the ranch, or in the homes of supporters (again, the same applies to the others with fixed locations).

    President Obama’s (and I stay formal out of respect for the office, not the man) entourage has to be put up in hotels or rentals. All the communications equipment has to be transported to each location he chooses to go to. A week in Hawaii, then a week in Martha’s Vineyard, then a week somewhere else – that costs us far more than two months at a fixed location. To compare the current White House to Versailles is an insult to King Louis – he at least kept his excesses in a palace only a few miles out of town.

    Let the First Family go on all the vacations and parties they want, who knows what goes on in their lives for real. The news about the Obamas is probably really positive because that’s what he wants the country to be. Nobody wants to hear about all the meetings and behind the scenes things the president does. Not even other presidents put THAT kind of news out. The nice thing about this First Family is that nearly every event they have at the White House gets televised. Now that America is more than likely gearing up for WWIII staying upbeat and positive is more important than ever. So the parties will be this generation’s USO shows or something.

    Hey stupid, if you believe those two are not far left, you are beyond dumb. Again, just because something passes Congress does NOT make it legal or Constitutional, you are a moron for believing anything that passes Congress is such. You are a liar of epic proportions, Thomas Jefferson said that “the tree of liberty must be refreshed, from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. – The Declaration of Independence

    As you morons try to change the Constitution and go against it at every turn, you WILL get what I said and it will NOT turn out well for you.

    Couldn’t reply below, but “Watch It” that is exactly what he is suggesting. His type is pissed because they lost an election, pure and simple, and elections have consequences. When those consequences, not “tyrannical” by any definition, bring talk of civil war and right wing retributions, we are dealing with a fascist pig/wanna be tough guy, likely with a very small wanker. A little schoolyard bully type punk. 

  • greywolfrs

    It’s not about losing an election. You assume I am a Republican and could not be more wrong. You assume that I am saying it is because of a Democrap being president, which it is not. This government is tyrannical, as they try to increase their control over the entire coun try. Republicans put the Patriot Act in place, which goes against the Fourth Amendment. Democraps had to beyond that and put the NDAA in place, which goes against the Fourth and Fifth Amendments. The unsustainable debt and deficits WILL collapse the system, it’s just a matter of time. Then what will happen? Those people on the government dole will no longer have food, housing or any of the basics. You know, those people the Democraps have kept on the government plantation.

    Hey stupid, you would never say any of that to my face, I assure you. You punk bitches refuse to see reality.
