Obamas finally show stewardship of taxpayer dollars: FLOTUS’ birthday party guests asked to eat before they arrive

Michelle Obama turns 50 soon, and when she gets back from enjoying her taxpayer-funded “gift” from Barack of an extended vacation in Hawaii, there will be a party in D.C.

In spite of the vacation expense, they’re cutting costs elsewhere by asking b-day party guests to fill up on food before arriving to the party:

The White House has been sending out save-the-date emails for a Jan. 18 gala dubbed “Snacks & Sips & Dancing & Dessert,” sources told the Tribune.

Guests are being told: Wear comfortable shoes, eat before you come and practice your dance moves. Who’s invited and who’ll entertain remain under wraps.

The Washington Post committed MSM Obama sycophant sacrilege by daring publish the opinion of some in the “manners” business questioning the move:

“I don’t think it’s rude, but I do think it’s a little … different than what people are used to. How’s that for putting it delicately?” joked Lizzie Post, great-great-granddaughter of Emily Post and co-author of “Great Get-Togethers: Casual Gatherings and Elegant Parties at Home.”

Colin Cowie, Oprah Winfrey’s go-to entertainment guru, worded his reaction gracefully.

“To ask people to ‘eat before you come’ is not the way I would have done it,” Cowie said. “I always think of the food. When it comes to making people feel welcome we give them great music, a well-stocked bar, and excellent food — and you do it abundantly.”

Area party planner Andre Wells agreed that telling guests to grab a meal before they attend a get-together is a bit unusual.

MSNBC headline tomorrow morning: Party etiquette experts are racist.
