The First Lady: Gaga and Tony Bennett serenade the Obamas in SECOND night of partying at bash for White House staffers who burst into song for the President with impromptu rendition of Signed, Sealed, Delivered
Lady Gaga wore a spectacular white dress as she wowed fans with Bennett at the Tuesday night event
The President and First Lady attend two inauguration balls at the Washington Convention Center on Monday
Celebrities revealed in Tuesday morning tweets that the partying continued at the White House until 3am
Guests on Monday included John Legend, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, John Mayer and Alicia Keys
Obama had a dance-off with singer Usher and Michelle danced to 'Single Ladies'
I'm just curious, as I look through all these photos, who is paying for this? I want to know how and why these people are partying until 3 am while the rest of the country can barely feed itself? The words "let them eat cake" come to mind as I sit here and truly wonder if these people really understand the significance of their actions.
Mr. President, we have a nation dealing with double-digit unemployment in many areas, a failing education system, 16 trillion dollars in debt, people being kicked out of their homes... and you're throwing parties for the Hollywood elite at the white house?
Ladies and gentlemen, if this isn't Rome, I don't know what is. If this isn't the American royalty rubbing their wealth in our face, I don't know what is. We have people living in their damn cars, people not able to pay their heating bills, people barely making ends meat... and all these people give a damn about is Lady Gaga's white dress.
Our founding fathers are rolling in their damn graves.

First off, the entire cost is not handled by private donations. There are still costs for security, clean up, and other expenses. However, the cost is not the main concern.
With all of this nations problems, such as double digit unemployment, I expect the office of the President that would insist on a toned down celebration.
It is a downright disgusting to me that the elite are partying, to the tune of millions, while the common American is suffering.
Americans are living in tent cities while the elite throw wild parties to celebrate empty victories.
Ummm...More likely it was during...never let a good moment go to waste...He really likes to blow up women and children at weddings and funerals....Truth be told that's what all the syccophants are partying about as well...they really love it when he orders another drone strike, it makes them all warm and fuzzy inside...Isn't that right?...You can hear them chanting if you listen real close...Go Bomb Um, Go Bomb Um, signed, sealed, delivered...the best part is the "I'm yours" as they worship at the trough...And that was just our fellow ATS sicko-phant hypocrits.

I wonder if he ordered a drone strike on some innocent children before, or after the party.

I appreciate the clarification. So lobbyists and companies working to lobby government policy and curry favor are footing the bill for Obama's partying and garish entertainment? Well, that beats it being my tax dollars.
Wait a sec... wasn't this supposed to be the White House that kept lobbyists out and turned a new leaf for blocking Special Interest influence and favoring within the system?
in 2009, ya
But Corporations are people now..you saying people aren't allowed to contribute?
Anyhow, welcome to America..money talks BS walks..Do I like it? nope..but whatever. its a capitalist society
Lobbiest lobbiest everywhere, and not a thought to think.
