m Obama treats troops to lunch, leaves without paying the bill
Earlier this week, President Obama sat down for a Fathers 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 Kennys BBQ on Capitol Hill went unpaid.
The irony of this particular situation is incredible considering the Presidents 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 didnt pay for. So all this stuffs baked in with all the interest payments for it. Its like somebody goes to a restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, martini, all that stuff and then just as youre sitting down, they leave. And accuse you of running up the tab.
Nice going, Mr. President.
Thats exactly the scenario that he puts out three days ago, is exactly what he just did to our servicemen, Glenn said.
Thats 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.
It’s always Democrat candidates who stiff people.
What an asshole this guy is.
I just HAD to post this when I read it. The irony is priceless.
Somewhere, Hillary is having giggle fits.
I would honorably suggest you apologize to assholes. What did they ever do to merit the comparison?
Ping in case you missed it.
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.
Thanks Jet Jaguar
The List, ping
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.
Well, the photo op was over. And so is he.
obama has had a free pass all his life
BTW, this article mistakenly says he had pork ribs. The original press release specified he had BEEF ribs. muslims don’t do pork.
Speaking of ham, see #16.
According to some old news stories, if you closed your eyes, you couldn’t tell the difference.
Must have been the cheapest place in town.
$55.58 for four people?
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.
