From his abbreviated biography:

“While finishing his final college year abroad in 2003, Kass was trained by one of Austria’s greatest chefs, Christian Domschitz in Vienna. “

Therein lies the problem...he was trained by a Domschitz....

If this is a ploy by Barry and Michelle to make the sequester seem draconian, it’s not working.

I am going to cry! Such a tragedy, the Asst Chef is being furloughed about 22 days a year. Well with all the Obama vacations the guy has more time off than he works already. This makes the news! The WH has to furlough the asst chef. Gee America has such a tragic state of economic times when the WH is affected by reduction of food makers.

The next news item is that the official dog walkers have to be cut back as BO will have to utilize a treadmill, because the groundskeepers had to layoff a couple of lawnmower operators and the 6 million dollars spent on the lawn upkeep has to be cut back. There is no more funds to place Scotts grass seed for the brown areas developed from BO’s peeing.

This is the perfect opportunity to ask a salient question...

Am I the only American (natural or naturalized citizen) to wonder why the "sequestration" was presumably supposed to be "across the board" cuts...
It amounted to a reduction of 3% of the proposed next budget, and it is all or mostly a reduction of proposed increases...

Yet the cuts seem to be arbitrarily applied AND first to the critical needed services which are affected way beyond 3%; and...
Some pet programs and projects which fail by any standard, are still getting increases or are unaffected at all. The welfare components of "Social Security" are the most egregious examples.

What's the official explanation?
That is a serious question. Anybody know?

I think the 2-3% is across the whole budget, but the decreases in increased spending comes out of just the discretionary part. The mandatory spending, like debt maintenance, stays fully funded.

That works out to a lot more than 2% for things that are impulse spending, like the Air Force that just grounded a substantial part of our defense. But imperative programs, like the $400,000 grant to study duck penises, are protected (I am *not* making that one up!).

And you are correct: The cuts are designed to hurt the public. Make no mistake. Obastard isn’t shy about that at all.

The economy may suck but in Washington DC it is alwaysLaissez les bon temps roulez

The restaurant scene in DC/area is the wealthiest in the nation. I knew this before it was all spelled out on a Sean Hannity special. The pols/hacks/criminals/Federale employees/contractors who live off our tax dollars only eat the best made by the best!! Plus lobbyist money pours into DC from all corners of the globe and this flows into limousines, restaurants, high class call girls, etc.

Thus Chicago Sam Kass is one of the most networked chefs (meaning huge rolodex that translates into making millions after the White House) on the planet because all chefs who interact with the White House go through him. He also seems to be in charge of the White House garden and beehives, more names for his rolodex.

I kinda keep tack of him because he (seems to be) Jewish like me. He's Moochelles food and exercise adviser and a facilitator. She wants some special chefs to come over and cook (show their stuff to a larger world) on one of her White House "Soul Music" soirees? Sam Kass is the liaison and will arrange this or help arrange this and get entree for some chef buddy of his to get in on the action

LOL. I'm with you, (those folks are NOT my scene) however, I don't think the Marxist hangs out with anyone.

I don't think he likes people. I doubt he has any friends, aside from Valerie Jarrett.
