Justin Timberlake to perform at the White House

(CNN) – Justin Timberlake's grand return is going to Washington.

The White House announced this week that the 32-year-old artist is slated to perform there on April 9 as part of an evening of celebration for Memphis Soul music. (The Tennessee native's latest album in particular, "The 20/20 Experience," has stood out with critics for its more soulful sound.)

    The right wing doesn't complain when liberals like Ray Charles played at the White House for Republican presidents. It's really hard to find a conservative entertainer these days that folks under the age of 50 or 60 have ever even heard of.

    Oh goody! Everyone else pull in your belts, no tours today or forever, but WH isn't included in budget cuts. Between VP and POTUS have gone on 8 vacations in 3 months. Workload must be a killer to take that many vacations.

    Get in line for your bread and cheese sheeple! As the liberal plan unfolds we get closer to becoming the United Welfare States of America.......soon we will all be out of money, nationally and individually.
