Skip to comments.Obama gut-busting inauguration lunch menu tops 3,000 calories

The ceremonial lunch President Obama and his former congressional colleagues are eating Monday tops out at 3,000 calories, according to a website that has tallied up the luxurious menu of lobster, bison and apple pie. HealthyFoodRecipe.net posted the full menu, complete with its calorie count, and said it was unsatisfactory to see such an unhealthy spread, given first lady Michelle Obamas push for healthier eating.
She has come under fire for the high-calorie counts of some of the state dinners shes hosted at the White House, but other nutritionists have given her a pass, saying indulging on special occasions is perfectly fine. Inaugurations, which come every four years, are about as special as occasions get.
The first course is lobster tails in a New England clam chowder sauce. The second course is bison with a red potato horseradish cake. The dessert is apple pie with sour cream ice cream.
The chef preparing all of this is Shannon Shaffer, who also prepared the 2009 luncheon.
The menu was determined by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugurual Ceremonies, which is chaired by Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat. Mr. Schumers home town of New York already requires all fast-food chains to post calorie counts.
And soon the rest of the country will have to follow suit. Mr. Obamas health law includes that same requirement.

I think they’re trying to hide her angry-black-woman brow.
Your right, they know exactly what they are doing..I am just used to using the word “Hypocrite” but it goes way beyond that..they have an agenda, always have had one..they want total control over our society and they are getting closer to that goal and it sickens me
Perhaps a few of the 8.3 million Americans who dropped out of the work force during the first four years of Baraq I's reign wouldn't have minded a nice lunch.
But hey. The elites gotta eat.
I think we use the word “hypocrite” to try to shame them or their supporters, as we would ourselves be shamed to support people or policies that were in conflict with our stated beliefs.
They have no shame.
May they all enjoy a helping of salmonella.
Well said. The way to couch this is something like this:
"Either the regime doesn't care about the unemployed due to serving a luxury lunch on Dependence Day, or it doesn't care about healthy Americans due to skirting the requirements on healthy eating which it forces on American schoolchildren. Which is it?"
Frame the message so the liberals have to choose between two bad options. Put them on the defensive. Don't let up.
You are right. It is long past time we stopped playing the 'aha, gotcha' game. They're going for our throats. Frame the argument to demean the liberal at every turn and separate them from decent society.
We used to call that a 24 piece order per person of Lobster McNuggets with Bearnaise sauce.
Looks like the first meal in prison!
I had a dream...
Nearly forgot, the Big Red Big Gulp or Double Gulp of Red Kool Aid for that special occasion for the kids and 40oz Colt 45 Malt Liquor for mom & dad.
Her Lardass has its own zipcode.
Liberal supporters, ie, sheeperals,
support what they do for one reason only -
to feel self-righteous.
When you take that away from them, it IS, indeed, “going for the throat”. Eternally.
HA! (...and I meant “mirror”)
I am boycotting TV today. Too much chance of coming across inauguration coverage
What I find most exciting of these two is just what is the world gonna do with them in four more years?
Remember the fury from the press because Bush served peanut butter and jelly as fare for his taxpayer funded junkets?
I think the press and media shape their political views based on what the president supplies them in the way of catering.
Behold the silverback gorilla.
Looks like she got her teeth fixed on our dime as well.
Why am I thinking this is not one of her approved school lunches?
“Maybe Moochelle will roll over in her sleep and crush him.”
One can hope, can’t one?

You obviously assume that they share a bed...
There are doubters hanging out at some Chi-town bath houses...
