More Priorities

on Thursday, March 12, 2009

I already hammered Obama once for his apathetic response towards the rotten markets by choosing to host White House meetings on how to attack Rush Limbaugh instead of how to attack the economy?

But alas, The Leader has outdone himself yet again with this latest act guaranteed to get blood shooting from your eyes:

While publicly identifying with the nation's have-nots, the Obama administration has been quietly cultivating the Beltway social elite behind the scenes.

Earlier this year, the Obama administration invited top editors of Washington's three local luxury lifestyle magazines, Capitol File, DC Magazine and Washington Life to a meeting where, among other things, they discussed how the President and first lady can embrace Washington's glittery social scene...

The outreach to the luxury lifestyle glossies, which cater to the region's highest socioeconomic strata with knowing coverage of everything from the choicest real estate and most exclusive parties to the plushest resorts and spas, is not the only recent evidence that the Obama administration is eager to forge ties with the nation's social and style arbiters.
This man is on a light-speed path to epic failure, and we're in the backseat with him. If the economy was tanking and President Bush, instead of tackling to issues of real priority like this coming year's almost $2 trillion deficit, was hosting meeting after meeting and party after party to practice his skills on blinging with the local glitterati, Keith Olbermann would be breathing into a paper bag.
