Shared Sacrifice: Michelle Obama Should Cancel Her White House Birthday Bash
Not so fast, Joel. The sine qua non of Obamaism is housed in a cute little phrase that is heavy on the catchy and even heavier on the Keynesian: shared sacrifice. It's really odd that the Marxist drivel preached by President Obama time and time again is often eschewed by the First Lady, who never actually adheres to her husband's call for fairness.
I doubt that the same Michelle Obama who brandished $540 sneakers while volunteering at a food bank is going to give up her big night for some under-privaliged D.C. neighborhood kids who would probably never get the chance at a once-in-a-lifetime experience such as visiting the White House. I doubt that the same Michelle Obama that celebrated Christmas by having 54 Christmas trees in the White House to go along with the 300-LB. Gingerbread replica of the White House, is going to sacrifice her special night for some snot-nosed kids.
But I could be wrong. I hope I am. I mean, if it saves just one
life White House tour, shouldn't Michelle do the right thing and cancel her birthday bash, you know, for the kids?
