High Society at the White House

Several news media outlets have published stories about the style of entertaining that has been done, and that is being planned, by the Obamas. Some people apparently think that, during these challenging economic times, the President and First Family should tighten their belts like many of their countrymen and avoid conspicuous consumption. I disagree. I think we should want our President to demonstrate confidence in the country and to reflect our leadership in the world. Part of being a leader is acting like a leader, which includes lavish entertaining of foreign dignitaries, exquisite meals, and good entertainment. So, I say to the Obamas — don’t be shy about hosting fine affairs. Our government can afford more than grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup at state functions, and we shouldn’t be embarrassed about it..
