Transparency: Elitist Obama Bans Photos of Champagne Towers at Lavish Fundraiser

So much for that well-cultivated “man of the people” nonsense. The president was in New York last night getting a tongue-bath from the washed-up David Letterman, then partied it up with thug rapper Jay-Z. But being an average Joe, he forbid photos of the $800 bottles of champagne.

It’s a shame there wasn’t a mole there to secretly record the event and leak it to  MSNBC analyst  David Corn.

From the New York Post:

Nix the flags and the podium. Cue the opulent 18-foot tower of gold-bottled French champagne.

When President Obama addresses an elite roster of hipsters and multimillionaires, including hosts Beyoncé and Jay-Z, in New York tonight, he will do so next to a custom-designed tower of $800-per-bottle champagne that dominates the main room at Jay-Z’s 40/40 nightclub.

The 350-bottle champagne tower — designed by Jeffrey Beers — is a monument to Jay-Z’s favorite bubbly, Armand de Brignac, which is known colloquially by rappers, clubgoers and connoisseurs as Ace of Spades because of its gold-spade label.

It’s floor-to-ceiling gold bottles in the entire space. It’s beautiful — breathtaking,” a rep for the Flatiron District hot spot told The Post. “It’s the first thing you see when you walk in.”

But the White House, which meticulously controls Obama’s image, is not expected to release any photos of the president’s appearance at the lavish club.

Details of the party are “under lock and key,” according to the rep, and the White House was guarding the guest list as if it were the latest intelligence profile of Iran’s nuclear program.

But remember, he cares about the little people.

    Did more than 47% of the guests drink this stuff? And was this planned, or was this spontaneous, like the mortar barrage?

    Is anyone surprised? At the DNC Obama took the stage to a song by U2 who used offshore accounts to avoid paying high UK taxes. Played out by phony man of the people Bruce Springsteen whose daughter competes in equestrian events with the daughters of Bill Gates and Mike Bloomberg

    Where’s the photoshopped images of the golden tower of champagne bottles?

    (It will have to do until someone releases an actual photo.)

    The optics should sink BarackHusseinObama – who’s fiddling while our embassies burn.

    Ghetto-licious. Nothing like a display of 2 buck chuck encased in gold tin foil bedazzled with shiny crap stacked to the ceiling for sale by the host.

    Black flags of Al Qaeda raised over besieged embassies, ambassadors threatened but President Kardashian parties on because “Hey, he looks like he’d be fun to have a beer with!”. What is wrong with people? I don’t even recognize my country anymore.

    Funding has nothing much to do with the accoutrements – such as champagne for the Hollywoodistas, guns for the red-necks or tax cust for those with plenty of money. But when will there be a truly visionary one-term president who doesn’t become tired of the machinery of politics? When will there be a crisis big enough for that to happen? Looking from a distance, at least Obama seems to have a usable brain.

    @Kaaren…”Looking from a distance, at least Obama seems to have a usable brain.”

    Are you effin’ kidding? My God, woman, or whomever you are, get your haed out of your arse. Barack Obama is the most egregious example of Affirmative Action preferences ever foisted upon Americans. Foisted upon us by nitwit pinheads….

    Usable in a college anatomy class perhaps. We can always use another study sample in our fight to stamp out mental disease. Otherwise, his brain worthless. It sure as hell isn’t doing Omama any damn good. Valerie Jarrett is the real brains and balls in his regime.

    Ah, a bigot displaying “ameriphobia” (irrational hatred of American not like him/her/it). Don’t like red necks? Use sun tan lotion. But please don’t hate.
