Skip to comments.Obama gut-busting inauguration lunch menu tops 3,000 calories
Posted on 01/21/2013 12:04:10 PM PST by SeekAndFind
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 like her hair hat. It would look better however if the bangs were a foot longer.
It would be so ironic if it was made from the hair of starving African children.
Michelle said she wasn’t hungry, but this is what she ate.
A dozen raw potato slaw, chicken and a roast,
Apple sass, asperagas, soft shelled crabs on toast,
Two big stew, crackers too. Her appetite was immense.
When she asked for pie, I thought Id die, for I had but fifty cents
3,000 calories..my goodness Bloomberg must have had a coronary when he heard that number..oh wait..NOW I remember the liberal rule, its OK for THEM, not OK for US
In this instance, for once I don’t mind their hypocrisy one bit. In fact, I think we should all encourage them to eat lots of food full of saturated fat and refined sugar and salt, drink as much liquor as they can before sharing their venereal diseases, and smoke tobacco like it was going out of style. Give an extra big portion of salt to Mayor Bloomberg, because he really likes his food extra salty.
And to make up for all of that, they should take lots of diet drugs, along with all their usual recreational narcotics, burning off all those extra pounds with potent amphetamines, washed down with expensive whiskey.
Yes, and while doing so they continue to spout sanctimoniously about how important it is for others to eat a healthy diet, etc.
Maybe Moochelle will roll over in her sleep and crush him.
Knock it off!!.....they’re special.:^]
Yeah, it’s OK for them, because they’re superior enough to only do it once in a while. The poor slobs out here in the rest of the country, though, shouldn’t be allowed to do it, whatever it is, because if they were allowed, they’d do it all the time.
Before the citizens consider Michelle to be the final word on healthy eating, maybe she should take a look in the mirrow...from behind.
Isn't that an ancient Cherokee recipe?
No, wait... that was crab in a tomato mayonnaise dressing.
If it wasn’t for hypocrisy, what would liberals have left..nothing..its all they know..they can have guns, we can’t..they can eat fatty foods, we can’t..its the progressive mindset, its OK as long as you are one of them, otherwise its not allowed
I hope they all eat until they burst.
Calling it “hypocrisy” is giving them the benefit of the doubt for having good intentions, and accepting at face value what they say their goals are.
Time to stop that. Long past time to stop that.
Time to start pointing out what the real goals are that they won’t admit. Elitist domination. That is their goal, and when you look at their actions in light of this goal, they’re not “hypocrites” at all.
They are entirely consistent, and malevolent.
I do believe Gordon Ramsay would kick your a*s if you served him bison and lobster together.
All those poor slobs outside, standing in the cold DC January weather. And these bastards head indoors for a leisurely luxury lunch and toasts.
Everyone waiting for the parade, and the aristocracy vanishes for lunch
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...
