The White House has condemned this churlish behavior but only after it became public. Of course no one in the White House had any inkling that the low life rabble they had invited to the country's epitome of national pride could behave so poorly but the Obama administration is not responsible.
"While the White House does not control the conduct of guests at receptions, we certainly expect that all attendees conduct themselves in a respectful manner. Most all do," Shin Inouye, a White House spokesman, said. "These individuals clearly did not. Behavior like this doesn’t belong anywhere, least of all in the White House."
To hell you say! "Most all do" is not good enough. Obviously the invited guests seem incapable of controlling their own behavior and the Obama White House says it doesn't. So who should? George Bush? And since when is a person not responsible for his guests? Try that excuse at your local VFW post, Masonic Lodge, or Eagles and you and your guest will be out on the sidewalk. Maybe they could celebrate a black mass in the East Room just to make sure the point is well taken. The fact is, the President is incapable of keeping of simple decency in his own residence, let alone the country, and no, Mr President, another hypocritical speech on tolerance, diversity, and understanding is not in order. What is called for, is a public apology to the American people for this act of civic sacrilege and a personal apology to Nancy Reagan.
