Just three days after Obama confessed his intent for socialism in America to Joe the Plumber (2008-10-12), Barack and his America-loving wife, Michelle, enjoyed “champagne wishes and caviar dreams” at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York. At four o’clock Wednesday afternoon (2008-10-15), Michelle called room service and ordered lobster Hors d’Oeuvers, two whole steamed lobsters, Iranian caviar, and a bottle of Bollinger champagne. The total cost was $447.39 … yes for one meal !!! America can hardly wait for the Obama’s to “spread the wealth around”, so that we can all enjoy the lifestyles of the rich and famous.
While washing down the lavish feast with champagne, I wonder if Michelle or Obama were steeped in pensive thought over the plight of Joe the Plumber loosing his job for having the audacity to ask a Presidential candidate a question about the American Dream.
Listen to Glenn Beck as he toyed with their dining extravagance on his radio program:
BTW, in case you’re interested, the Obama’s (who relate so vocally and so frequently to the plight of the financially poor), earned over FOUR MILLION dollars in 2007 … according to their tax returns released back on April 16, 2008.
And, here’s the Obama’s tax return stats for the last eight years. A large portion of their recent income was derived from book sales.
In Dreams from My Father, page 293, Obama mentions a passage from Jeremiah Wright’s speech “Audacity of Hope”:
Hmmm … I suppose the Obama’s were just having a quick snack while reflecting on their hope for change in America. Is Obama’s greed running a world in need?
