Did you lose your job? Your house? Is your IRA worthless? Did Bernie the Bandito rob you of your retirement?
My wife and I can’t go on “spring break” because we have no money for that kind of thing any more: but President Barack Obama will leave Washington DC before long because he now needs and undoubtedly deserves a spring break with Michelle and his kids. And in doing that, Obama will be the first president since Grover Cleveland not to attend the first Gridiron Club Dinner of his presidency.
That’s not a big loss since Joe Biden has agreed to step in and he is always a hoot with his ad lib remarks: like you can always find Indians and Pakistanis working in 7-11….
And Nancy Pelosi will undoubtedly fly home to San Francisco in comfort and style care of the U.S. Air Force and paid for by you and me….
While Warren Buffett has said the nation should be on a war footing to solve our economic troubles, it is still business as usual for the American elected-elite….
And the mainstream media that launched Obama on the fast track from community organizer to President of the United States won’t say a word…..

A Gridiron Club member tells FBDC first that President Obama will not attend this year’s dinner next Saturday, March 21st. He will be the first president since Grover Cleveland not to attend the first Gridiron Club Dinner of his presidency.
This year’s date coincides with the spring break of President Obama’s daughters’ school and club members have been informed the Obama family will be out of town, likely in Chicago.
Vice President Joe Biden will attend and speak at the dinner in his place. This member tells us the club is delighted to have Vice President Biden, but that there will be some very disappointed guests.
Each year the dinner includes satirical musical skits choreographed by the members, and remarks by the president and various members of each party. President Obama spoke as a Senator at the March 2006 dinner.
The Gridiron Club was founded in 1885 and this year will be the 124th dinner. Membership is by invitation only and its 65 members include the most prestigious journalists in Washington.
