Priceless, the Burger King Barack Obama Takes Staffers for Burgers After Debt Ceiling Debate


Wow, pens and burgers for those who participated in the debt ceiling debate debacle. White House staffers got to take a lunch with Barack Obama after dealing with long hours for the debt ceiling debate. But wait, were they provided with a healthy meal? Nope, they had burger courtesy of the the Burger King. What would Michelle Obama say?

Congressional leaders will get the pens President Barack Obama used to sign the debt ceiling bill, but White House staffers who logged long hours to secure the deal got lunch with the boss.

Mr. Obama treated a handful of senior White House officials out for burgers at Good Stuff Eatery on Capitol Hill Wednesday afternoon.

“Michelle eats here all the time, but I don’t get out,” Mr. Obama said of his wife, who’s had a burger named after her on the Good Stuff menu.

How ironic, or is it hypocritical? Not only does Obama take his staff out for a non-healthy burger that his wife would most certainly disapprove of … but who does not find it pathetic that after a debate based on over spending and the need to increase the debt ceiling, Obama spends even more $’s for burgers. But it get’s better, one would think that Michelle Obama would be against burgers, at least she is when she tells us how we should eat. Oh the hypocrisy, Michelle actually has a burger named after her, the MICHELLE MELT, Free Range Turkey Burger on the menu at the the restaurant, The Good Stuff. Obama has a burger too, check on the calorie count on this beast.

Wait it gets better, what would Michelle say? Obama even lured an 11 year old boy into the evils of sugar, ice cream and calories by offering the boy a milkshake. Just like all attempts to addict one to something, the first one is always free.

The president was apparently in a good mood, sharing his spread with fellow diners, including 11-year-old Andrew Parker, who said Mr. Obama told him to choose any milkshake he wanted from his table.

Check out Weasel Zipper’s pic of Obama chowing down on a burger, good grief, is he trying to inhale it in one bite?

      that his wife would most certainly disapprove of

      disapprove of only if it’s US eating it. Michelle ate at the same place and packed away a few more calories while doing it.

      Do as I say………

      [...] Obama took his minions out to lunch to congratulate them for all their hard work on the debt ceiling deal, with the looks of the financial state that Obama has taken America, I hope The One made them pay “Dutch” treat. [...]

      Obama reminds me of the fairy tale of the King’s New Clothes. Everyone (well, those who support him) too afraid to speak out the truth that the nincompoop was really walking around naked. Sad part was even the king in that story believed he had beautiful clothes on until the honesty of a small child shook everyone straight and back to their senses.

      I believe many who supported Obama are like the crowds who stood in silence while the king pranced around with his nasty showing. Once the truth was out everyone realized how foolish they had been. Sounds a bit like those jumping the Democratic ship right now, doesn’t it?
