Is this the Era of Responsibility?

http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2009/01/drinks-are-on-t.html

Or is this the "Elitest LIberal, Let the eat Cake Era?

After pushing his $1.1 trillion Generational Theft Act of 2009 through the House last night, the White House apparently decided to throw itself a swank cocktail party. According to ABC’s Jake Tapper, the menu included alcoholic beverages (vodka martinis are an Obama favorite, reportedly) and wagyu steak.

"wagyu steak.” is a $100 per serving delicacy.

  • You know what. While I am not surprised because this is the CRAP Politicians do. I would think (1) Given the Economy and the "urgency of a stimulus package [his words]. (2) After all of Obama's claims for change, and his, [yes] "Era of Responsibility and Transparency" Claims~Obama would want to make Good on his words. So, it's apparent Obama is just another Politician that is NOT about Change, Accountability, NOR, Responsibility. What he said does not equate to what he does!  Sorry Obama voters he is just another politician.

     Check this out. "The most expensive beef in the world is wagyu, or Kobe beef. ..."  Now THAT is Responsible and Transparent.  I am sure some Lobbyist paid for it.  Ohh wait, there will be NO Lobbysits in his administration.  Errr, no~that isn't true either.. ROFL!

  • I think that there has been a lack of accountability and responsibility in, not only the White House, but in politics in general for a long time and there will be for a long time to come. People only want to take ownership for the good and like to negate the bad decisions. It is like the saying goes, "If I do something good nobody remembers and if I do something bad nobody forgets."
