    Thumbs down Despite Sequester, White House hosts another 'Star Studded' Concert...SMFH

    Though the White House has been singing the sequester blues, the Obamas still have managed to scrape together enough of our Taxpayer's Cash to throw yet another star-studded concert celebrating "Memphis Soul" later this month.

    The White House announced Tuesday that the 10th concert in its "In Performance at the White House" series would go on April 16. Set to perform are Al Green, Ben Harper, Queen Latifah, Cyndi Lauper and Justin Timberlake, among many others.

    Though the White House last month decided to suspend official tours of the "people's house" citing the sequester, the budget cuts apparently have not impeded the concert schedule.

    Since their inception in 2009, the White House concerts have featured Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and other stars.

    The concerts are not for the Obamas' ears only. The events are streamed live on The White House, and the April 16 concert will be broadcast on PBS stations across the country. It will also be broadcast to U.S. forces overseas at a later date.

    Virtually every social event held by the first family, though, has come under scrutiny, given the impact of the sequester. Republican lawmakers ripped the administration for its decision to cancel White House tours, which affected school groups and others who had made spring plans to visit.

    Imagine being stationed in the middle-east, watching Obama cut military spending over the sequester cuts and then having a music event broadcast to you from his living room. The man has no scruples.

    Yep, obummer said that everyone must give up something. So far I have not seen or heard what the obummer's have gave up. They seem to go on vacation every 2 weeks and have a concert every other week that they are in the White House.

    Oh I think I know what they have given up! They stopped going to church except for special occasions and for photo shoots!!!!!

    Obama has given-up a lot of things... faith in America, the U.S. Constitution, the economy, support for business owners just to name a few.

    The sequester is nothing more then liberal double speak. It's nothing more then a 2% reduction in growth. The government will grow spending at 6% instead of 8%. It's not any different then local government cutting public safety to punish tax payers when the object to paying higher taxes. They aren't about to reduce spending in any program that the public won't notice. Cut were it hurts, that's the name of the game.

    I do feel a little insulted that they think Americans are this stupid but I guess when we continue to prove that we are, it doesnt matter.
