It's being reported that Adele and Beyonce have been booked to rock The White House on Michelle Obama's 50th birthday.  That should be some party . . .

It's hard to believe that the politics of the sequester have worked out the way the Obama administration intended.  Even their usually-reliable friends in the media have been skeptical, as this report from ABC News demonstrates:

Jonathan Karl concluded the report by noting that the President took a 20-car motorcade to travel a short distance to eat with Republicans -- and suggested that next time he save money by eating at home.  

It seems to me that it's time that Republicans pointed out the many, many ways The White House could manage to reallocate funds to allow the American people to visit their White House.  The President and Mrs. Obama have enjoyed to the fullest every perquisite of their rank; with that enjoyment should come some scrutiny, especially in a time when regular tourists are being told that there simply isn't a dime to spare on something for them, the taxpayers who subsidize it all.
