Ready Set Roll

The White House Easter Egg Roll is just around the corner. It is scheduled for April 9th and 35,000 people are expected to attend.

Today the White House announced the theme “Let’s Go, Let’s Play, Let’s Move”. The games and activities are geared to promote the idea of living an active healthy life.

Bo is featured this year on one of the souvenir eggs and The White House has dressed him up in a video promoting the event. (link to video)

A lottery for tickets to the Egg Roll will be open today and close on Monday March 5th at 10am. (link to site)

    All of these staged events paint a human face on Obama, while he continues to pick our pockets, and revoke our freedoms.

        No Jean it is not! I'm saving that one for you and Trace!

        @Jean2009 But thanks for noticing the call -out! This places me one up on you. You have not yet called out ANYONE on the left yet for ANYTHING! You had a good chance a couple of days ago when BLKman in America give his "pink people" rant. You tappped danced around that issue harder than Sammy Davis Jr!

        @ Steveo and you had your chance to call out Rush.

        March 3, 2012 at 6:51 pm |
    • Steveo


      Yes I did have an opportunity to call out Rush! Just because I didn't should not be taken as agreement with him! Problem is Jean, although I called out Howard, that was not good enough for you! I say nothing and that is not good enough for you! See what i'm saying?

    Howard....poor you, boo hoo hoo. Everything this president does makes you right wings nuts lose your minds. I guess next your going to say he is trying to take your house, car and let's not forget your gun. your a loser and need to admit that all the presidents have some type of gathering for Easter. hypocrit!!

      You're such a fool. Obama is using stooges like you, and you're too stupid to even know it. As soon as he no longer needs obedient pawns, like you, you'll be thrown under the bus, just like all the rest of the blind loyal idiots, who follow this corrupt, self-serving, false messiah, in lock step. When that day comes, although it will be poetic justice to see you fools get your comeuppance, unfortunately, you clueless jerks will take down the entire country with you !!!

      Hey Obama 2012 – It appears Howard kicked your butt. Is that why you are crying?

      Actually, check the gun laws in Ill. (where BO was involved in creating laws). He already took their guns... But, don't hurt yourself bending over backwards for BO.

        Check again!
        There are very strict laws in Massachusetts
        Pennsylvania currently has the strictest gun laws
        Makes sense that states with the highest populations will have stricter gun laws.

        Although Massachusetts, Washington D.C. and New York state are considered to have the strictest gun laws.

        My feeling is.... if hunting a game animal with the weapon is illegal it should be illegal to own.

        Jean2009, I am going to borrow leftist language for my response! First you have everyright to your feelings, but currently, the 2nd amendment says other wise! Her ewe go:

        "If you don't want to have (gun) don't get one"! You guys normally insert abortion where I placed "gun". BTW wasn't the DC gun control law overturned? My point is the criminal element will NEVER suffer under gun control, the honest gun owners (those who actually take the time to legally purchase and register their guns) will.

    Starting before 1870 the Easter egg hunts were on the Capitol grounds. In 1876 Congress passed a law stating the that Capitol grounds could not be used as a playground. The event was moved to the White House grounds in 1878.

      blah blah blah...anyone for some mz obama food?

      If Obama were not corrupt, it wouldn't matter if he staged P.R. events, like other Presidents have. But, in his case, it's sickening, because he's a hypocrite, who pushes a fake image of being nice, while at the same time he's robbing Americans blind, and destroying our rights and freedoms. Unfortunately, Obama stooges, like you, support, and excuse him for every corrupt and stupid act he commits, which results in his getting away with it, and his getting worse by the day.

    I am not against this right now, but I would like to know what the overall expense is. These types of things should remain in place, but a move should be made to fund them privately. I feel the same way about other fundraisers, team visits, parties, entertainment events and most dinner events heald by sitting politicians.

    A 133 year tradition that has survived harder times than these and all I see is a bunch of idiot whiners that obviously don't have the guts for hard times. The National Parks System is in charge of the Monday Easter Egg Roll.

    John did you question the cost when George W. Bush was spending us into oblivion with his two unfunded wars?

    Information regarding calorie dense foods is easily available but about low calorie foods are not that easily available. Many of my clients ask for information about the vegetables that contain low amount of calories and can be consumed in large quantity with out altering their figure. This article which will give information on some of the low calorie, low fat content vegetables. These vegetables are useful especially for people who are having obesity, diabetes, hypertension or coronary heart disease. `
