Posted on 07/26/2012 9:09:55 AM PDT by trackman
On Tuesday morning, all three met with a staffer and were driven to the restaurant and arrived shortly before Obama. The three said the restaurant workers and other patrons received notice only a few minutes before the president arrived.
Foeller and Dilley said Obama ate half of a cheese sandwich and skipped the ham in his split pea soup. "He's a pretty tall and slender guy," said Dilley. "Maybe that's why."

the commie was probably observing ramadamadingdong.
I think we all know the reason he didn’t eat the ham.
Nice try: The president of the United States doesn’t go anywhere without weeks of advance planning. EVER.
The ham wasn’t Halal compliant?
Some sects and cultural differences in Christianity and Catholicism avoid pork as well. I know several Peruvian Catholics who don’t touch pork in any way.
The ham wasn’t split?
zero is a vegetarian?
I don’t get it. If there’s a piece of ham in a soup, wouldn’t the ham “pollute” the rest of the soup? So even if he didn’t eat the physical ham, he ingested ham “juice”.
he sure eats a lot of ice cream for a tall and slender guy.
I’ll go have me some ice cream with bacon bits.

... must be a Moslem.
My train of thought exactly.
Not sure if that’s exactly the reason, though. The soup could not be Kosher even after removing the ham, since the soup was defiled by the ham. Don’t know if the same applies to Halal.
It’s possible that the Kenyan usurper just doesn’t like ham.
Maybe he would have preferred dog.
Of course, dog is not Kosher, either. Don’t know if it’s Halal, though.
I’m pretty sure you have to fast from sunrise until sunset during Ramadan.
That’s why 0bama tells you to “eat your peas”.
Oh, come on, the guy is not a Muslim. I think he’s an smug intellectual atheist who wears a vaguely theistic coat for the gullible masses.
And he doesn’t eat much because he lives on a more rarefied plane than most of us.
Exactly. From the lead paragraph in the article...
The three veterans who had lunch with President Barack Obama Tuesday in outer Northeast Portland didn't just happen to wander into the Gateway Breakfast House.
All have connections to the Obama reelection campaign and were presumably chosen for good political reasons.
Just another phony photo op and proof that not all veterans have their heads screwed on right.
In any group of over a million people you’re going to find some Democrats. It won’t do him any good. The vast majority of servicemembers, veterans, military retirees and their families hate this fool. It might persuade a few independents that he cares about the troops, if they’re not paying any attention, but that’s about it.
As a politician Obama is a transthiest. When he visited Egypt he told their foreign minister privately that he was Muslim. If he came around my neighborhood and someone asked him about his faith he would speak in tongues.
He may not be a Jew but this was probably his way of trying to win back the Jewish vote :-)
Check Michelle’s Fatwa list. She may issued a Fatwa against ham.
Pretty sure I’ve seen him eating a hot dog.
“Maybe he would have preferred dog.”
I hear Obama loves dogs; he just can’t eat a whole one by himself.
Actually, neither a Muslim nor a Jew would have eaten any of a soup that had ham cooked in it. (Though I do recall Norman Podhortz once citing a rabbinic regulation about maximum levels of non-kosher contamination which are considered innocuous under Jewish law. But it had to be unintentional and I’m sure it’s exceeded even in amount by the ham in any half-decent split-pea soup recipe.)
Ah, the voice of reason - - It has been suggested Obama could be from South America.....Peru most likely.
Wasn’t making a direct correlation here. I personally believe Obama’s a Muslim.
But the "surprise lunch visit" may not be about veterans completely or even primarily. More from the article....
After all, Obama had given a speech Monday at a convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Reno, so the Portland lunch reinforced the message that president cares about vets. In addition, the local vets -- Thomas Foeller of Oak Grove and Mark Peterson and Dean Dilley, both of Portland -- are retired white males, a demographic the Obama campaign would certainly like to do better with.
The only time the Democrats haven't won Oregon easily from 1988 on was in 2000, when Ralph Nader drew so many votes from Gore (over 77,000) that Gore carried the state by a few thousand votes.
Tons of libs in the American Legion in WA State. This state is so blue, it’s black. We are the last place in the country where the union pretty much operates as it did ten years ago.
Yes, certainly not a Jew! Obama is actually into the religion of Obama, but in his confused mind, I think he is probably draping himself in some sort of Black Muslim garb.
Neither of the main Muslim sects considers the Black Muslims to be orthodox, but Farrakhan said that he had reconciled with them (I’m not sure which one), and I bet Bambi is giving the wink-wink, nudge-nudge to this group and to the “mainline” Muslims as well.
Likes dress-up and ceremony. Likes playing nice with the non-Western world.
Christian faith, Muslim faith, what’s the difference to an atheist?
Ahh, that's because Judaism is reasonable. Moslems must pick their teeth clean for fear that even a molecule of food might become dislodged during the day thereby breaking the fast. How many ritual oblations that incurs, I have no idea.
When he stopped at a famous bbq joint in South Carolina during the 2008 campaign, he ordered chicken. As far as I’m concerned, if you go to a southern bbq joint and don’t order some kind of pig, something’s wrong with you.
Why mention it? Nothing published by reporters close to the admin isn’t edited by them first. The admin made sure the paragraph was there.
That’s what’s odd about it. Reporters reporting on carefully planned spontaneous events involving high profile liberal politicians is de rigeur. The ham thing though is something the admin wanted in there.
I remember the idiotic footage of Bill and Hillary trapsing on the beach, arm in arm, arranging rocks into messages of love, embracing near a waterfall. I threw up a little in my mouth when I saw that spread. People are that stupid too, to think that was anything but planned.
Bunch of bald, old fat white guys (several with sparse chin beard/mustache around their mouths) sitting next to Obama at a set-up democratic photo-op supposedly about old white veterans - Obama’s sworn enemies?
Why did did your gaydar suddenly alarm?
He said “There will be no cut in pay for the military.”
He also said “If you like the insurance plan you have now, you can keep it.”
I noticed those white guys all had their eating utensils on the table.... the hispanics were not allowed their knives and forks when the Won was going to speak at a hispanic event
Some sects and cultural differences in Christianity and Catholicism avoid pork as well. I know several Peruvian Catholics who dont touch pork in any way.
Are the followers schooled in a Madrass? Have the followers publicly promised to “stand by moslems?”
If we were only looking at one or two minor incidents than it would be easy to ignore. Unfortunately, this is just one more of many indicators that he isn’t as “Christian” as he claims.
Don’t misunderstand me. I believe Obama is a Muslim. He’s said so himself on numerous occasions and his behaviors point to it.
I’m simply pointing out that more than just Jews and Muslims adhere to the practice of not eating pork.
