    Obama's classy guests at the White House

    I thought gay people were supposed to have good taste? This is so incredibly inappropriate. Nobody from these groups should ever be allowed back in the White House, and President Obama should publicly condemn this behavior exhibited by his guests.

    http://blogs.phillymag.com/the_phill...r-white-house/

    Last Friday, an attaché of important gay people from Philadelphia made a trip to Washington D.C. as invited guests of President Barack Obama for the White House’s first-ever gay pride reception. There, they danced to the sounds of a Marine Corps band; they dined on crab cakes and canapés; they hand-delivered letters from concerned citizens like this 18-year old who has had four people close to him gunned down, and noted rhyming raconteur CA Conrad; and some of them took advantage of photo opportunities to give the late President Ronald Reagan the middle finger.

    Childish.
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Disrespectful and unnecessary.

    The bird just seems like a childish thing to do for a grown adult in any case IMO. Especially to a picture hanging on the wall though.

    I think this applies even beyond the white house, if someone invites you into their home, resist the temptation to get a picture of yourself flipping off their artwork.

    Words to live by.

    You would think that this would have been common sense.

    Yes, but often common sense doesn't seem to really be that common after all!

    An idiotic gesture performed in a moment of tipsy revelry, though it's stupid and reprehensible, I can forgive, especially if it's ultimately seen by no one or very few.

    Posting it on Facebook for everybody to see? I just don't get that.

    I'm sure many of those paintings have been cursed at, given the finger and otherwise disrespected hundreds of times over the years. But how dumb do you have to be to publish the pics of doing it......

    I would imagine you would be equally forgiving if it was say Westboro flipping off Clinton?
