What's a $55 dine and dash compared to the $5,000,000,000,000 he's had for the country?

Wasn’t he just talking this week about ordering up a tab in a restaurant and then leaving, sticking it to some other poor soul?

Heck, I do that all the time. Have lunch with some other people, get up and leave without remembering to pay my share of the bill. That's one of the resons I've got so many friends.

Besides, Obumbo's got a lot of stuff on his mind. And he's... you know. Give him a break already.

I find it interesting that Kenny’s bbq allowed this to become public info. It suggests they are not fans of 0bama, or they would have just called the WH and asked to be paid.

Love the comments on the site!

Give him a break? He’s had more vacations than any president in recent memory. He can have all the breaks he wants after he leaves office on January 20, 2013.

The White House, acting upon this minor faux pas being spread across the blogsphere, sent a bill for $28,500 to each of the four guests. ‘That’s the typical going rate for a lunch with the President. Someone could have picked up the $50 tab.’

Taxpayers are supposed to pick up the tab for the Rich Black Trash and other leftoid grifters and moochers.

I imagine the owner got stuck with the tab. And if I know Obama, the Secret Service probably closed the lunchroom and the entire block to everyone for several hours, at least. So the owner lost all the rest of the usual lunch crowd as well.

I like how the vermin at NBC’s Today show tried to place the Class Warfare Card. They tried to make it look like Mitt only hung out with business men for lunch while the boy in chief would eat with the common folk.

Well, for anyone with an IQ in double digits, the common folk are not going to be creating the much needed jobs. The business folks certainly are the ones who will creating PRIVATE sector jobs.

After making a big Brewhahaha over the Republicans left him the tab for a steak dinner in at least two speeches?

This calls for Obamameurism of the Day.

Just doin' what he's been doin' in his whole, government-sponsored life: appropriating for himself what belongs to others.

Obama: The GOP stuck me with the tab for a steak dinner

“I love listening to these guys give us lectures about debt and deficits. I inherited a trillion dollar deficit!” Obama said, “just as you’re sitting down, they leave, and accuse you of running up the tab.”

SO............... the real ‘gem’ in the article is that Obama wanted to ‘eat out’, privately, but had the White House (Taxpayer funds) take care of the bill.

This private sector restaurant is doing fine and doesn’t need people to pay their tabs.

It’s UTOPIA, skittles and unicorns, 0bama style.

Obama reminds me of one of those ‘friends’ we all seem to have, who loves to go ‘out’ with you, and waits until the bill comes to spring this on you.

“Darn, I guess I forgot to bring some money, I don’t know how that happened. Could you cover it this time?”
