Team Obama ‘treats’ troops to lunch, leaves without paying the bill

m Obama ‘treats’ troops to lunch, leaves without paying the bill

Earlier this week, President Obama sat down for a Father’s Day lunch with military veterans, but after chowing down on pork ribs and posing for a photo-op, Obama and his staff left the restaurant without paying the tab. The $55.58 bill for four at Kenny’s BBQ on Capitol Hill went unpaid.

The irony of this particular situation is incredible considering the President’s recent remarks about Republicans running up the tab.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: They [Republicans] baked all this stuff into the cake with those tax cuts and a prescription drug plan that they didn’t pay for. So all this stuff’s baked in with all the interest payments for it. It’s like somebody goes to a restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, martini, all that stuff and then just as you’re sitting down, they leave. And accuse you of running up the tab.

Nice going, Mr. President.

“That’s exactly the scenario that he puts out three days ago, is exactly what he just did to our servicemen,” Glenn said.

“That’s fantastic,” Pat joked. “I love that.”

Representatives at the White House ultimately settled the bill, but not before the President proved (once again) that he is not as fiscally responsible as he claims to be.

The One apparently thought gracing the troops with his presence was reward enough - because he got up from a planned lunch at a restaurant in D.C. and didn't bother to pay the bill. This move was particularly ironic given just a couple days earlier Obama compared the GOP to people who don't pay their tabs at restaurants.

I would honorably suggest you apologize to assholes. What did they ever do to merit the comparison?

And that's only about one one-hundred-billionth of the bill he's stuck the rest of us with.

I’ve seen piles of dung that have far more class than Obama.

I didn’t actually mean to besmirch the entire worldwide community of assholes, just the giant, flaming, raging asshole in the White House.

If I didn’t pay my bill I would be arrested, and prosecuted. The pres—ent get to say “oops my bad” and get one of his lackeys to go back and settle up. What a cheap bastard.

BTW, this article mistakenly says he had pork ribs. The original press release specified he had BEEF ribs. muslims don’t do pork.

According to some old news stories, if you closed your eyes, you couldn’t tell the difference.

He fed four people for $55.58 in Washington DC? He must have taken them to the cheapest place on the planet. If I was one of the servicemen I would be insulted.

When the presidency degenerated into a mere entitlement, it should be no surprise that the package also came with a free meal ticket.

Typical liberal who is generous with other people’s money and a tightwad with their own.
