Posted on 03/15/2013 9:32:53 PM PDT by John Semmens
President Obama's wine-and-dine offensive took an odd turn this week when he refused to partake of the comestibles for fear of being poisoned. At a working lunch with several GOP members of Congress Obama said he couldn't eat because his official food-taster was unable to accompany him.
Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) tried to allay his fears by pointing out that everyone was being served the same meal. Even after Obama was offered the option of exchanging plates with any of the other diners he still declined to eat and contended that every plate could well be tainted and that I wouldn't put it past the GOP to willingly sacrifice a dozen legislators for the chance to get me..
Press Secretary Jay Carney defended the President's caution by pointing out that it's possible that all of the other diners could've been given the antidote in advance. Let's not forget that it was right about this time of year when Julius Caesar was killed by treacherous senators. So, I think it's better to be safe than sorry.
if you missed any of this week's other semi-news/semi-satire posts you can find them at...
LOL, Beware the Ides of March!
Have other Presidents had food tasters?
He just missed being invited for tea with Polonius
Only the paranoid schizophrenic ones with malignant narcissism and a god-complex, that's all.
So, only Obama.
Hope he stays paranoid. Even paranoids can be right.
Royalty always has food tasters.
What I’d like to know is what is this guy’s salary?
Does he get a meal allowance?
Are Muslims allowed to eat lobster. From what I have read, the answer is ‘No’.
LOL! I heard that stuff just goes right through you!
They could have eliminated all his fears. Simply say “President Biden.” Even someone as dull as husein would see in a moment, or after having it explained to him, no one wants shotgun Joe in the big chair.
My goodness, whatever would cause obozo to feel that way?
Your satire often borders so much on reality, I sometimes can’t tell the difference.
But a food tester...really? Really? I can actually see that he has one. Royalty requires it.
Not only that, how many times have we seen him with his kids at some stand buying ice cream cones..was a taster along then?
If this is true/accurate the USA is indeed in a surreal time never even envisioned by the Founders.
Just shows how much of a pompous bast**d he is.
Beware the Ides of March, Obamus
Got me again!
This is telling—fear is poisoning his mind and perhaps causing him to be unhinged. They better not leave any guns around the White House or sharp objects. He might well take his own life! food tasters! sounds like some Roman Emperor! I bet Lincoln didn’t have food tasters!
His taster was sequestered? Ain’t them the berries!
Evil people know evil exists, and how it operates.
Don't be misled--you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.
“Got me again!”
I thought he got me again, too, but I had just seen something about it on FOX, for real.
I found more on the story at Breitbart:
Every day seems like the Twilight Zone...
Did they check the calendar? Perhaps he was fasting for some Muslim holiday.
This has got to be the first president in our history who refuses to eat without a food taster....and I wonder how much that costs the taxpayer who is lucky to be eating at all these days.
If this was only satire. On the other hand, think of all the elite golf courses The Taster gets to see and snack on. He better be on his A game in Israel...the crazy Mossad and the pesky Palestinians
In my lifetime only Nixon was as paranoid.
And NO other was as hated.
Those are the scariest of them all. n/s
What Id like to know is what is this guys salary?
Does he get a meal allowance?
He probably gets paid by the meal. Every evening.
No matter how much the taster gets paid, I wouldn’t want that job.
The man eats dog.
Yes. And they assume that everyone else thinks like them. Hence the paranoia.
I wouldn’t be caught dead with any of that evil bunch.
The come up with the dangest things on the Onion......
