After it was revealed that the Obamas hosted a lavish Halloween party in 2009 during a low point of the recession, people are now questioning how the event was kept a secret for two years.
The White House maintains that they were never dishonest and did, in fact, mention the party, though they chose to keep the role of Hollywood heavyweights Johnny Depp and Tim Burton to a minimum.
'This was an event for local school children from the Washington DC area and for hundreds of military families. If we wanted this event to be a secret, we probably wouldn't have invited the press corps to cover it, release photos of it to Flickr, or post a video from it on the White House website,' White House spokesman Eric Schultz said in a statement.
Tradition: The first couple hands out packets of sugar cookies, dried fruit and M&Ms with the seal of the president to kids before the lavish party
In spite of Mr Schultz's assertions, no members of the White House press pool reported on the party at the time of the event.
Only two sources made note of the attendance of two Academy Award nominees at the party: the Nashville Tennessean and a fan site called JohnnyDeppNews.com.
Should the Obama's get in hot water for this one, even if one can't recall if this party was mentioned or not. Â Lately because of many of Michelles trips costing so much money during an oppressive time. Most do get the image they will wine and dine on lobster, and caviar , while others are standing at a soup kitchen they never dreamed would happen.
Yet, aren't the Obama's allowed to do something nice for the kids with out some heat and the cost, Â eeeh he did it for military children, Â It might not be seen by many as this but that is a lovely way to suck in the military for those votes come 2012 many would surely say at this point especially since the Country is no longer America, and is now crumbling to it's knees the final blow will be when either " world war three erupts, or some sort of civil war, Â one or the other is bound to happen and very soon.
If the above doesn't cause a horrendous diaster , Â mother natuer is bound to be pretty wicked this year as well. Worse than last year , each year is to get worse. ,
awww well such as life.
