Obama - paloosa: Where lack of focus meets hubris every Wednesday night

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle, since moving into the White House, started a tradition of having a mid-week party where artists primarily from the world of music, come to perform for the first couple, friends, and invited guests.

This week marked an occasion where the President decided to have this weekly fete coincide with the bestowment of the honor of appointing someone to the Library Of Congress through the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. Paul McCartney embarrassed himself by gushing all over Barack Obama upon receiving his, what has to be, 2,000th career honor or award - must have been rookie jitters.

Nero (in this case, McCartney) fiddles while Rome burns to the ground:

The oil breech in the Gulf continuing on for 45 days with its first Government approval request response being issued today

Unemployment approaching 10% for almost the better part of a year

Democrat Party politicians loosing their offices left and right when illegal job offers from the White House are unable to remove some of them before hand

States enacting laws to take control over processes the Federal Government should be responsible for but refuse to take the responsibility to enforce

Popularity polls having one's job approval rating plummet after only 16 months in office ... just seem to be getting in the way of the grand party held every Wednesday night and they all wonder (the inner circle at the White House) why isn't everyone else interested in what Michelle is wearing to impress Paul McCartney, Jerry Seinfeld, Stevie Wonder (oops, he can not see ... but that doesn't matter, he's here every Wednesday night), The Jonas Brothers (who are also often guests), Faith Hill, Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Jack White and Dave Grohl among the other performers at the tribute event for McCartney.

Obamapaloosa!... an event where denial gets passed around at the White House every Wednesday night and taken in like a Thai-Gold, opium laced marijuana spliff at Woodstock!

Welcome to the progressive leadership paradigm we are forced to live under and witness here during Carter's Second Term.
