It was the tea party the Obamas just couldn’t resist.

A White House “Alice in Wonderland” costume ball — put on by Johnny Depp and Hollywood director Tim Burton — proved to be a Mad-as-a-Hatter idea that was never made public for fear of a political backlash during hard economic times, according to a new tell-all.

“The Obamas,” by New York Times correspondent Jodi Kantor, tells of the first Halloween party the first couple feted at the White House in 2009. It was so over the top that “Star Wars” creator George Lucas sent the original Chewbacca to mingle with invited guests


Read the whole article ... it's outrageous.


TV News is reporting that Michelle Obama went in a tacky faux-leopard print sweater with cat ears.
Yep ... I can picture that.
More useless spending of our money .... more Obama-style 'transparency'.
So far .. no denials by the White House.

Strange, it said there is an 'original Chewbacca'.

Does that mean the actor who played him, or just the original suit? Or both?
Hmmm.

Also their party sounds very suspicious.

A director and an actor threw a party. The president & fam were invited guests. I'm not seeing what to get my panties in a twist over, where's the outrage here? Veiled butthurt over not being one of the invited guests yourself?

The party was sponsored by Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, not the Obamas.

I thought our motto was "Deny Ignorance", not "Spread Unfounded Gossip".

Ok so yeah I am a little butt hurt.

It sucks that actors can lobby the government for their interests and lavish them when I cannot do that. All I have is this useless vote.
I guess it's just more proof that politicians cater to money, not to the country or it's needs.

And why is the "leader of the free world" able to have so much leisure time and so many parties? Shouldn't the president have better things to do than be distracted by all of these luxuries?

Considering that he's thrown all the country and somewhat the economy of the world

DOWN ALICE'S RABBIT HOLE

and thrown the midwest feed lots' fertilizer down on top . . .

what a fitting party.

Arrgance, cheek, destructiveness abound . . . the wise hide themselves.

What part of ... IN THE WHITE HOUSE ... don't you understand? You do realize that paid security, etc etc, is required at these things don't you? If there wasn't anything wrong with it. They wouldn't have tried to keep it hush hush.

Actually an appropriate theme for a party because dealing with the current congress is like a trip down the rabbit hole.

I'm guessing Obama did NOT dress as the
White Rabbit...

Is there no security at the White House when they're not throwing a party? Seems to me the Secret Service agents get paid wherever they are. And as for keeping it "hush hush?" Don't you think your outrage is a pretty good example of what they were trying to avoid?

George Lucas sent the original Chewbacca


I'm sooooo tempted to make a comment on that line
, but I might get in trouble. But in seriousness, does this really surprise anyone? Even if obama didn't pay a dime of our money for this party, they still carry themselves like they are so far up on the food chain that we don't even matter to them, then you have to add that the tax payers are still footing the bill for the security.
Another thing, if the obamas were concerned with the sate of the country, they could've easily said that no, in these hard times a party would send the wrong message and just stepped away from it. But they didn't.
