Obamas make burritos for MLK service project
CBS ^ | 1-20-14 | Rebecca Kaplan

Posted on 01/20/2014 9:12:30 PM PST by smokingfrog

The first family visited the DC Central Kitchen as part of a Martin Luther King Day service project, where they prepared meals that will be distributed to shelters around the city.

The family prepared beef burritos alongside regular volunteers. President Obama complimented his younger daughter Sasha’s burrito technique as “outstanding” and said with a smile he was very proud of her.

The family chose the DC Central Kitchen because they are celebrating their 25th anniversary of taking local produce and leftover meals that they turn into 5,000 meals.

Absolutely nothing.

But it has everything to do with signing up for the Affordable Care Act.

And by the way, have you had the talk yet with your folks about signing up?

Have you hot chocolate and red, plaid onesies?

With the world events etc. happening it’s pretty easy to see our President hasn’t much to do about nothing in his mind.

Playing Suzy homemaker is about as much as he can pull off....Anything else he attempts he gets trashed!

Taking local produce and leftovers from where? Leftovers from their WH bday party. Finger sandwiches instead of a real dinner, again.

You have to give it to the Obamas. Most people just listen to his I Have A Dream speech. Very few reach back far enough to MLK’s early “I wish every American had some beans and cheese wrapped into a tortilla” speech.

"You have a bright future ahead of you, Sweetie, wrapping burrito supremes at Taco Bell -- which is the only job you'll be able to get after 8 years of my influence on the economy. See that you brush up on your barista skills, too, for that second job!"

While I don’t see the MLK connection, at least feeding the hungry is a genuinely good action, regardless of how exploitative BHO’s motive may have been. This may be Obama’s first genuinely good action in the terrible five years he has been in power.

I ALWAYS think of burritos when I think of MLK....doesn't everybody??

I guess the Hispanics were feeling like the Obamas weren't paying enough attention to them.

Good or not I wouldn’t eat anything that creep made. With his hands being a part of it’s preparation, the food would be contaminated.

Kind of feel sorry for these girls. Dad is a dork who likely has never been there for them and Mom seems to be in a constant state of anger. Hopefully their Grandmother has her feet on the ground.
