Dont forget he hid the party from the press in plain sight (he put the videos and photos from the party on the white house website)

Also, supposedly the extravagance of the party was "hidden" from the public, even though the press was invited and they posted pics on flickr.

The rant about Chewbacca was made of pure undiluted win. (You have to watch the video to understand.)
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Obama threw a Halloween party for children of the troops on his first Halloween in office. Conservatives think it was hushed, even though white house employees took pictures of the even and posted them on the internet. And Rush Limbaugh is a moron.

Obama can literally do nothing right in the eyes of Fox News. See: this thread and its origin story.
