Skip to comments.White House (picnic) serves up a tasty thanks to lawmakers (PICS!)
Posted on 06/08/2010 7:37:28 PM PDT by maggief
WASHINGTON Members of Congress lined up near a fire pit on the South Lawn on Tuesday to eat Northwest-style salmon while others chomped down on Midwest-style hot dogs.
It was all part of the White House's annual congressional picnic, and this year the event featured foods from regions across the country for a "Tastes of the States" theme.
President Barack Obama, standing next to first lady Michelle Obama, told lawmakers he wanted to thank them for their "incredible devotion to the country, regardless of party." As part of the event, every member of Congress is invited, along with their families.
Obama said the nation has seen a tough few years and "that's meant that Congress has had to do more on a whole range of issues." The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico means more pressure to work together and with the administration to dealing with the crisis, he said.

I’ll have to take your word for it Star. I’m on dial up and normally, I would have patience but I just couldn’t stomach looking at what was coming up. They (reports) sure concentrated on the dog dragging the marxist though didn’t they?
Hopefully we’ll see the ‘list’.
or even thought about
Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass. , is pictured before President Barack Obama arrives at a congressional picnic on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Tuesday, June 8, 2010.
1. The deficit is extremely high.
2. We are fighting two inconclusive and bloody wars.
3. Unemployment hovers at around 10%.
4. Infrastructure remains neglected.
5. The disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is one of biblical proportions, and it has yet to be resolved.
And here they are having a picnic.
Were I a member, I would not have come.
Quite the RINO
I think poor Bo is trying to run away from home. Run, Bo, run!
Picnic prep/’kickin’ ass.’
So did they serve oil-soaked crustaceans from LA, AL, MS, FL and TX?
Or possibly, petrolium-marinaded Red Snapper?
Glad Zero didn’t lose any party time over the Gulf of Mexico “inconvenience”.
phat-ass maBelle michelle......yellow & green top, green pants too tight for her phat ass, and blue shoes. Another fashion setting day for the oooogliest bitch ever in the WH. Even the commie pig 0bozo looks on with disgust & revulsion!
Did they serve pork?
Were Ok in Tx.
Obama is really unbelievable.
Taste of the states?
Awww... Hewen Thomas was front and center.
Looks like The One is out of hair dye again. The stress of the job is taking its toll on him.
He picked the wrong week to give up blow.
How much CO2 did Barry have released for the gastronomic delight?
"Wow, getting wined & dined by 0bama the master ruler of our country. He's really a very nice man and those mean conservatives have been unfair to our benevolent socialist ruler. Can't wait for another critical vote so that 0bama will give me more of his personal attention, maybe even a plane ride on AF1. Ohhhh I think I may be the next RINO to swap parties for my new best friends, the demoRATs.
Love, Scott Brown"
What a gig.
Geez, Michelle could go down and sit on that busted pipe and there’d be no seepage whatsoever!
Thanks for the post/thread. Interesting.
A real lady never wears pants so tight that her “under pantie” lines show, and her pants should never creep up into the back of her crotch.
Doesn’t the White House have a mirror, for goodness sake!
You are funny. I get a pretty good visual there.
Glad to hear Reggie Love is still around. He’s serving what purpose again?
Muslims don’t like dogs.
Remarks by the President to Congress at picnic, as provided by the White House

I know I am a glutton for punishment for reading this drivel, but the SOB sounds like the CEO of a company at a company picnic etc...finishing up with “On behalf of Michelle and myself, we hope you enjoy the evening...blah...blah..”
One would think he reached into HIS OWN POCKET and footed the bill.
We are doomed......as long as this ENTIRE group is ‘guiding us’.
Heavy duty carbon footprint there ..... On the White House lawn.
Muslims dont like dogs.
He has no scruples.
The Nomenklatura enjoy themselves while the rest of the country suffers. I wonder if they had an silent auction for earmarks? Using our money.
They sure do tear up the WH lawn a bunch.
Poor little Barry Soetoro, he’s so skinny and weak he can’t hold back Bo and wtf is he doing holding the leash in his right hand? Left side you moron. Wookie is so damn big and awkward.
“run Forrest, run’!!!
Here in New England,he might be the sort that’s the best we can hope for. I would prefer any so called RINO,Libertarian,Constitution Party candidate,or moderate conservative to the US Senate and Reps we have now in Rhode Island.
Can you imagine the talk in the Secret Service locker rooms about Obozo and his mate?
“phat-ass maBelle michelle......yellow & green top, green pants too tight for her phat ass, and blue shoes. Another fashion setting day for the oooogliest bitch ever in the WH. Even the commie pig 0bozo looks on with disgust & revulsion!”
There were uglier first ladies than Michelle Obama. However, definately never more bitchier, arrogant and vain.
RE: “They are lucky that she didnt trip and fall on her face.”
Yeah, ‘cause if she’d fallen, her Nancy Pelosi style wig might’ve fallen off. LOL
This would have been a good time for an empty plane to crash right into the party of the scum sucking people that are stealing our tax money and living high on the hog.
Looks quite comfortable doesn’t he!
I’m thinking Louis XVI, myself, what with all the food and entertainment and all.
Why are they always flying in chefs?
Because Michelle has a voracious appetite for variety?
Obie and wookie just behaving normally. They look at this country as their personal plaything with us footing all the bills. They are both spoiled children who fooled enough people to get into the White House and are just taking advantage of all the perks. Class? Huh? Never had it. I wonder if they even know how much they resemble Louis and Antoinette?
