Obama: Britons ‘look better’ at state dinner
When it comes to appearances at state dinners, President Obama is keeping score.
Mr. Obama was standing with first lady Michelle Obama on Wednesday night at the White House when their guests of honor, British Prime Minister David Cameron and wife Samantha, arrived for the state dinner on the South Lawn.
As Mrs. Cameron stepped out of a town car, Mr. Obama commented, “very pretty.” Then he turned to his wife and said, “They look better than us.”
Mrs. Cameron wore a sparkling, dark-blue gown with elbow-length sleeves, according to a pool reporter who attended the event. Mrs. Obama wore a sheer, teal, floor-length gown with a short train in back. The president wore a standard tuxedo.
Among the guests at the dinner were actor George Clooney, Vogue magazine editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, billionaire Warren Buffett, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe, PBS anchor Gwen Ifill, British airline mogul Richard Branson, and Chicago real estate and casino magnate Neil Bluhm.
A total of 41 guests, including Mr. Bluhm and Ms. Wintour, are “bundlers” who have each raised hundreds of thousands of dollars or more for Mr. Obama’s re-election campaign.
Democrats agree to pull Obama-faced U.S. flag
A Florida county’s Democratic headquarters recently flew a U.S. flag featuring President Obama’s image in the blue field where the stars ought to be.
After complaints by local veterans, Lake County Democratic Party officials took down the banner, which had been flying for two months underneath a standard U.S. flag on the Tavares, Fla., building’s flagpole. Some veterans took photos of the two-banner display this week and began to spread them around.
“It’s absolutely disrespectful,” Jim Bradford, a 71-year-old veteran told Fox News. “It’s totally ridiculous. To put somebody’s picture there, to me, it’s a disgrace to do that.”
Nancy Hurlbert, chairwoman of the Lake County Democratic Party, agreed to take down the flag Tuesday, but told Fox News she thinks the complaints were based on personal animus for Mr. Obama and/or his legitimacy.
