Obama stiffs Sidwell Friends

Gordon Brown shouldn’t take Obama’s lack of class personally. Apparently, Obama’s classlessness extends to everyone, including the school his daughters attend, Sidwell Friends. The Clintons sent Chelsea there, and raked in some big bucks for the school. The Obamas? Not so much.

When Chelsea Clinton was a student at the Sidwell Friends School, the same school the Obama girls attend, the Clinton family’s involvement with the school’s annual benefit brought in big bucks. In 1996, a round of golf with Bill Clinton went for nearly six figures; another year Chelsea Clinton offered up her babysitting services to the highest bidder.

This past weekend was the Obamas’ first chance to participate in the Sidwell Friends School Dollars for Scholars benefit, and some families who remember the Clintons’ support are disappointed in the Obamas’ first showing.

According to a source with ties to the school, the only items up for bid from the Obamas included a signed copy of the Rolling Stone issue featuring the president and a signed copy of the January Vogue that featured the first lady.

“There were expectations that they might donate something more personal, like the Clintons did,” said another source who knew about the auction. “Lots of people were disappointed.”

A spokesperson for the Obamas said, “We have no comment on this.”

Chelsea Clinton remains involved in the event — this year she and a fellow alumna Nicole Davison donated a “lunch or brunch” in New York City. The value, according to the bidding materials: “priceless.”

A couple of signed magazine covers? That’s it? So I guess it was possible to put less time and thought into gifts than the ones given to the Browns.

Also, it seems to be yet another gift showing the Obamas’ arrogance. Not only are the Obamas stingy and classless, they’re completely narcissistic. When Bill and Hillary come off as more generous and less arrogant than you are, then you should know you’ve got a problem.

Man, I’m so proud to have these two in the White House. So, so proud.

    I see a trend as well with the Obama “gifts.” Every gift they give out is connected to themselves in some way to show that they’re “teh awesome.” As if we should be grateful that they deign to give us their attention.

    Wait, wait, wait.

    They actually “donated” signed photos of themselves?

    I honestly can’t think of a more self-pleasing “gift”.

    The Current Temporary Resident of the White House and his wife are the epidemy of low class, conceitful (is this a word?), and self absorbed people. They are so full of themselves and belief all the positive press that has been heeled upon them. I am embarrassed that this man and his wife represent the United States to the world. I guess they represent the acronym “NCAA” (No Class At All).

    At least they weren’t unplayable videos.
