Big party week for the Obamas



By Christina Wilkie - 09/12/10 05:57 PM ET

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have a packed social schedule this week, with two major galas and a reception for college athletes.

On Monday evening, the president will welcome collegiate star athletes to the White House for a reception at 5:45 p.m. The annual event, first held by former President George W. Bush, recognizes outstanding student athletes in more than a dozen sports, including field-hockey, lacrosse, and volleyball. Neither of Obama's alma maters, Columbia University and Harvard University, made the grade.

On Wednesday the First Couple will don black tie for the annual Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute gala, one of the more entertaining political galas of the Washington fall season. A number of entertainers are being honored with awards, including Eva Longoria Parker, five-time Grammy winner Arturo Sandoval, and musician Sheila E. Also participating in the festivities will be Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Hopefully the Obamas get some rest Thursday or Friday, because they will be back in formalwear on Saturday night for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's (CBCF) annual Phoenix Awards dinner. The dinner will mark the culmiantion of the foundation's 40th Annual Legislative Conference.

Honorees at the dinner will include New Jersey State Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver, actor and humanitarian Harry Belafonte, journalist Simeon Booker, and renowned choreographer Judith Jamison.

Washingtonians will recall that White House party-crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi allegedly snuck into the CBCF dinner in 2009. Expect security to be extra tight this time around.

The Washington social season unofficially began Saturday night with the Washington National Opera's season opening gala, and ends in early December with the Kennedy Center Honors.

Very true. However given the situation of the country right now, it just shows how utterly tone-deaf these MF'ers are. They really don't give a shit, they're out to get as much as possible from their position and have no interest in the United States, or its people (beyond how much damage they can do to pave the way to their Socialist Utopia).

I'm going to have to give "this one" to him. I believe it is part of the job, just as it has been part of the job for many a leader through time.

In a way, this Washington week sort of reminds me what I heard about UNITAS in the 80's......practically a formal party every night you were in port.

It's a win for us. Partying is millions, his policies are billions to trillions.

He should be ready for another vacation by the the end of this week then maybe a 'lil Bush blaming then maybe a bit of time off before the midterms to unwind a bit then some grousing about how many Dems got booted (hopefully) then maybe a nice 'lil trip somewhere to unwind a bit then back at it for a bit more Bush blaming then off for the holidays ought to pretty much fill out the year.

Actually, IIRC, the pool was closed.
