And they’ll be all over the airwaves next week discussing inequality and the Koch brothers

Barack Obama (net worth, 2007, pre-election, $1.3 million, 2012, after four years in office, $9 million +) will be addressing “The Millionaires Club” (Congress) this week on income inequality. While he’s stuck in dreary, cold Washington, his pals are off at the Sundance Film Festival, whooping it up before returning to the world of the little people to instruct the greedy middle class on why they should sacrifice their labor to support the poor. Here’s a report:

In a subterranean parking garage, hundreds of partygoers are crammed into a makeshift version of Manhattan’s TAO nightclub, drunk on (free) Moët & Chandon rosé and high on life — and other stuff wafting through the air.

“TAO is fun,” remarks one reveler. “It’s even more fun on molly,” adds his pal before Rick Ross ($28 million net worth) takes the stage. The comely crowd goes wild; one blond fan (net worth unknown) starts singing along with the rapper, who, in turn, grabs her head and sucks her face.

Welcome to Park City, Utah, where thousands have jetted in for the Sundance Film Festival, now the biggest party of the year.

Rapper Lil John (net worth, $25 million) is there, as is Harvey Weinstein ($150 million) and the poor, like Elizabeth Olsen (a mere $1.5 million), and Billy Crudup  ($5 million) – “[Crudup] was inviting girls back to his ‘mansion,’ ” says the source. “Not his house. His ‘mansion.’

And speaking of mansions, Obama fund raiser Jeffrey Katzenberg ($840 million) has a great one, as shown above. Surely not as nice as his home in Beverly Hills ($35 million, before renovations) but the mountain retreat is mostly used on just weekends.

Here’s a nice tidbit from the lives of the save the planet crowd:

“The excesses of Sundance are such that hard-partying visitors don’t even bother with the local drug dealers.

People just brought the drugs on their private planes,” one NYC-based Sundancer explains matter-of-factly. “I even heard of people taking Special K, and I haven’t heard of that in years,” he adds.

Understand, I don’t begrudge these people a penny of their wealth (well, except for Barack) – God bless America, where folks can still get rich. What does make me angry is their hypocrisy – they’ve made it, they’re living the pampered, CO2-spewing lifestyle they aspired to, and they now want to shut the door and lecture the mobs gathered beneath their balconies on the virtues of self-sacrifice. Bah.

    So the hoi polloi aren’t sacrificing enough, eh? I think all that can be said to these sanctimonious sophists is something along the line of, “Isn’t you palm flashing red?”

  2. And these elitists agitate for conservation while flying in private jets. What better way to deflect guilt for their lifestyles than to propagandize against them.

    Unlikely that these folks are monitoring developments in the Ukraine.

    Seems Andrew Cuomo is also dipping his feet into Katzenberg $, flying to Hollywood for a $50k couple dinner party. Cuomo is the ultimate douchebag and Katzenberg is indiscriminate in giving his money away. Birds of a feather…

    I know you had the fancy insinuation that Obama somehow stole his wealty, after all, he didn’t have it before he was elected so we must consider it stolen or at least of questionable provenence, right?

    In fact – and this will drive you crazy – he made it all off selling that book “dreams of my father” and, yes, the movie rights! Too bad W’s book was a crashing loss, but there you go.

    OK, go. Blame it on Obama…………uh,

      Francis –
      Dealing with the liberal mindset makes one feel like Sisyphus. You are unrelenting, and refuse to deal with reality and common sense. YOU SICKEN ME!!

      Barry did not write “Dreams of My Father”. Bill Ayers, the commie pinko terrorist did. Barry is not smart enough to write a book.

      The Democrats have stolen a page out of the Nazi propaganda playbook. Lie, attack, ignore the laws, use government as a weapon, and use any means necessary to move your agenda forward. The Constitution is a racist archaic Document. That is what you believe.

      The Mayor of New York is a commie. The President is a half white commie. Who we know nothing about. The MSM is a joke. The First Lady is a Wookie. Guns should be outlawed, free speech is a threat, and illegals should vote. Disgusting.

      Anyhows, do you want to come to our Super Bowl Party? Chris is planning it now. Can you get some taco’s from your illegal immigrant supporters? And can they serve as waiters at the party for $3.50 an hour? Plus you let them vote five times? And you can bring some of your commie friends. As long as they are the Eastern European girls with the big commie fun bags.

      Can you take my action on the game?
      Your Pal,
      Walt

    • Fiction always sells well and I don’t begrudge Barry his novel’s earnings. Heck, I’ll even cheer him on as he makes his estimated $100 million on the lecture circuit, just so long as he’ll retire. It’s the hypocrisy of being lectured to about sacrifice by a multi-millionaire that gets my goat, if I may use a Kenyan reference.

      W’s book was excellent, by the way. Got mine from the library.
