Do you want fries with that?

Okay, so how much is THIS costing me? I don't know about you, but I am a little annoyed that we pay all of this money for a full time White House kitchen staff, yet Obama has to pick up lunch himself. This has to be the most expensive burger run in the country seeing how it involves dragging along all those pesky Secret Service agents and the entire White House press corps, but, gee, who’s counting?




Is there no one to do this for him? If not, maybe he can appoint a Burger Czar, or better yet, I bet Five Guys can deliver right to the door. I mean, he is the President after all. It has got to be cheaper than going himself.

And in other news, Our Dear First Couple have a date in New York City tonight to take in dinner and a play.

“President Obama makes his first trip to New York Saturday to enjoy a date night on Broadway with First Lady Michelle Obama...The Obamas plan to take in "Joe Turner's Come and Gone" at the Belasco Theater, the Daily News has learned…Obama spokesman Josh Earnest would only say, "The President and First Lady will make a personal visit to New York City...The First Couple will be traveling on one of the smaller planes in the Air Force VIP fleet instead of a Boeing 747 jumbo jet..."
-New York Daily News 5/30/2009

I’m guessing that they don’t have theatres in D.C. anymore since the Bush Administration probably closed them all down. And, in show of real fiscal responsibility, I am thrilled to report that the Obamas chose one of the "smaller planes" in their VIP fleet for their night out. It is good to know that being Leader of the Free World isn’t cramping their social life.

UPDATE: In a report published by the AP just a minute ago, the White House declined to say how much the Obama's date night cost the taxpayers. I am feeling a FOIA request coming on. I will keep you posted on my progress.

I think Obama would make a better employee on the other side of the counter.

I've heard on the net, so I don't know if it's reliable, that the Obama's have a weekly cocktail party at the White House. Nice to know that little things like running the nation aren't cramping their style...

Bev, that was eight minutes of painful. If I owned a franchise, I wouldn't hire this guy to be a cashier.

Uh, ah, uh, can't you just let me eat my burger?

AndrewPrice said...

So now we have proof that he wouldn't make a good burger jockey either. Is there anything this man is good at?

BevfromNYC said...

SQT - Yes, there is cocktail party every Wednesday afternoon.

Writer X - I am sorry, I never expected anyone but the most ardent Obamaniac to actually want to watch the entire 8 minutes and I do apologize. Frankly I was just happy I was able to post the video. I've never done that before.

StlDan, Law and Andrew - It is amazing how he can't even order a dang burger without looking like a weenie.

Well if it was date night, Michelle must have been oh so pleased with having the media as chaperones...LOL! Besides, if the media wasn't there, Obama would have had a lackey go in and order for him.

I would say it bothered me...but honestly, the kid needs a burger. He's far too skinny.

He's AIDS- skinny, skinny.

I know he's part African, but he really needs to embrace the American way at EAT SOMETHING

Hey man, don't you get it? He's keepin' it real.
