President Obama Stops By Cafe Beauregard In New Britain [CT] For Lunch
FoxCT ^ | March 5, 2014 | Crystal Hall

Café Beauregard has only been open three months, but Thursday afternoon they served the President of the United States lunch!

Beauregard Café was chosen for a reason, the café owners pay their staff at least $10 an hour. Their stance on their workers pay fit well into the President’s schedule Thursday as he spoke about increasing the minimum wage.

Still, many were stunned to see President Obama walk through their doors.

“We figured the President had to eat somewhere and we were hoping it might be here,” said Alice Bruno with the Café.

KEYWORDS:
**President Obama sat down at a table with other dignitaries but you won’t fit the chair he sat in, in the dining room anymore. The owners moved it aside to hold onto the memories.**

The print version of the HC had an image of the restaurant owners with the *chair* mounted on a soda color. I could not find the image on line....but the irony remains....is this a very, very subtle dig at the imposter a la from the Clint Eastwood parody?

This is a screengrab from the video of the *chair*.

they might get some money for that in their “going out of Business” sale.
Having Obama darken your door is the kiss of death.

This is FOX NEWS?

It’s a gushing propaganda piece, written at the High School senior level.

Six months from now a news report will say:

In other news: Cafe Beauregard recently had to close it’s doors as it’s normal patron base mysteriously decided that it was no longer a place they wished to dine at.

The restaurant had once hosted President Obama and his enbtourage while the President was in Connecticut for ‘official business’.

And anyone should give a rat's ass because? The media just can't help themselves in gushing over the turd.

I don't know about the six months from now closing. I am sure their start-up loan will carry them for at least a year.
But I will agree that Nobama will be living in the White Hut longer than than they will be open.

Bet you’re not surprised that Hussein has a king’s taster...

** A new customer had been coming in over the past couple of weeks, ordering different things every time.

“Then one day she came in and ordered $70 worth of food to go,” Chiovoloni said.

He found out Wednesday she worked at the White House.

Chiovoloni said he had also received a curious call from someone saying he was a University of Hartford student working on a project who asked about how much he paid his staff.**

Just because one wants to pay at least $10/hr, doesn't mean everyone else should have to do so.

This was photo op territory RE: minimum wage speech at CCSU that day....that’s why. ;)

You may not personally care, but increasing the minimum wage is not good for the poor or for businesses. The increases in overhead will bring small places to their knees...add in the inherent probs with obamacare and places like this little cafe will go belly-up.

The City of New Britain is in deep trouble [where this photo op took place]....and the new Republican mayor has inherited big fiscal problems for the city.

“He had a bowl of chili, the Korean BBQ Steak Sandwich, he had the tart, and he had a drink, Snapple.”

I don't think any of these are on Imelda Obama's Let's Move! healthy eats list.

The guy in the green tie with his head up Hussein's butt is our emperor governor.....who is holding out announcing another run for re-election while he hopes for a Nobama appointment in DC.

This is the third restaurant in this spot, FWIW. Political kabuki theater.

Most employers pay well above minimum wage. Why? Because they have to compete for good workers.

So why are some workers getting paid minimum wage? Because they aren’t competing, and offer nothing special to employers.

That must be the “chair mounted on a soda color”.

What’s a soda color?

Historically, every place 0bummer-boy “visits” is the kiss of death; $5 says this place is gone in less than 60 days.

From what I can tell.....this is done *pre-pre-pre* in advance of his highness descending from his throne in the whitehut to mingle with the hoi polloi.
