Cheese and an 'enhanced experience': White House goes showbiz on the State of the Union address
The Washington Times ^ | January 27, 2014 | Jennifer Harper

“President Obama has always been dedicated to the idea that the White House is truly ‘the people’s house’ and has worked to make 1600 Pennsylvania and his administration open and accessible. This isn’t a new idea, the same can be said of President Andrew Jackson,” reports Erin Lindsay, deputy director of online engagement for the White House Office of Digital Strategy.

Indeed, Jackson once hosted an open house in 1837 featuring a 1,400-pound block of cheese; thousands of citizens arrived “to interact with Cabinet members and White House staff - and carve off a slice of the four foot by two foot thick slab of cheddar,” Ms. Lindsay explains.

And so on Wednesday, the Obama administration hosts the first-ever virtual “Big Block of Cheese Day,” during which dozens of White House officials will take to social media for a daylong “open” house to answer questions from Americans.

Government cheese is very popular right now. Not as popular as “gay marriage” and ObamaCare but still very popular.
