Obama: 'I Don't Take Free Food' Daniel Halper May 23, 2014 11:50 AM
In Chicago this morning, President Obama made sure to let everyone know that he'll was paying for his breakfast with Illinois governor Pat Quinn. "I don't take free food," Obama said at the food counter.
Via the White House pool report:
President Obama and Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn arrived at Valois Restaurant for a hearty breakfast. Valois is clearly an Obama mainstay: A glass cabinet was filled with Valois coffee mugs adorned with Obamas face, and assorted Obama clippings and photos hung on a wall.
A separate menu board featured President Obamas favorites, including N.Y. steak and eggs; two eggs with bacon or sausage; two pancakes; steak omelet; Mediterranean omelet; and an all-vegi egg white omelet. Obama appeared to stray a bit from his favorites, ordering two eggs over medium with bacon and hash browns.
Obama ordered at the counter of this casual restaurant and greeted the cooks as he waited for his food, which came out on a plastic tray. The dining area was about half full, and everyone appeared appropriately shocked that the president had strolled in for breakfast.
At the counter, Obama plopped down two twenty-dollar bills and said, I dont take free food. The president and the governor set their trays down on an empty table and spent a few minutes chatting with customers. Obama greeted folks with a how are you doing? or a good to see you and posed for a few pictures. His food remained untouched as he took photos and talked with a few more people, largely out of earshot of the pool.
Finally, Obama joked that the customers were working him too hard and said that he was going to eat his breakfast with Quinn. The pool was ushered out as they sat down to eat.
Obama spent about half an hour at the restaurant, and by the time he departed, an enthusiastic crowd had assembled outside. The motorcade departed Valois at 9:44 a.m.
He’s right....We the People get to pick up his and Moochie’s tab.
what a puke
Mighty white of him.
When you have the parrot press in your pocket you can say any damn thing you want.
He knows we already know he’s a lying POS but the no-info voters will never hear it.
he ordered exactly what i would have ordered... but i would have added toast... i like my eggs over medium...
But he will take your money.
doesn’t he know he is not allowed to eat bacon?
Assorted Obama clippings and photos hung on a wall.
Down at the police station they call them mug shots.
Valois is a great choice for a good meal. I used to be a regular when I lived in Hyde Park. You can also get stuffed to the gills for under $10 there.
Sounds like he is imitating the song, “Threw It On The Ground,” by The Lonely Island.
I go to my favorite hot dog stand
And the dude says, “You come here all the time! Here’s one for free.”
I said, “Man! What do I look like? A charity case?”
I took it and threw it on the ground!
I don’t need your handouts!
I’m an adult!
You can’t buy me hot dog, man!
Oh he’s so magnani-mousy!
(Hey! “Magnani-Mouse”! My new B-HO Superhero!)
Because Michelle ate it all first.
The Boy lives in Denial!
But multiple free Hawaiian vacations are just fine.
Sooo, he was able to order, smoosh with the people,
get his food, eat it and talk with the governor,
all in 30 minutes, the man is a marble I tell you
a veritable marble.
I wonder what exactly is going on in his mind so that he feels the need to say he doesn’t take free food? Is there some new scandal about to hit the papers? Did some call him a name? It just seems odd, but so does everything about this man with no past and an unknown name.
Nah! He’s just a average garden variety liar.
Said none of his voters. Ever.
No. He takes free money. Don;t know what he has been doing for the salary we pay him, except screw things up.
Obama worship makes me want to puke.
He probably took the money from one of his SS agents. No way that money was his.
But he lines his wallet with all sorts of kickbacks, stimulus monies and tax dollar paid “freebies”.
We feed this waste of oxygen daily. Useless POSOTUS
“Pay extra for the $6.27 breakfast so that you look like a big-shot. Make you look like an independent man who pays his own way...ala Harry Truman! Yeah, that's the ticket. You are JUST like Harry Truman. That way no one will blame you for taking $17 million vacations or promoting the global warming scam that will cost $700 Trillion. It's the perfect smokescreen. Do it, Barry. DO IT!”
It does make you wonder, doesn’t it? It’s such an odd comment. How many of us comment “I don’t take free food” as we’re paying our restaurant tab? Seriously, the only reason it would occur to him is because he IS used to taking free food and is now denying that fact. The rest of us don’t even have a frame of reference for the thought to cross our minds.
did his food tasters try it first?
The Diner Grill is a good place to eat in Chicago. Irving Park Road.
My wife makes a less bombastic version of the Slinger.
Interesting characters at 4:00 am.
“doesnt he know he is not allowed to eat bacon?”
The pool of reporters was escorted out before he ate, so who knows if he actually did:
“His food remained untouched as he took photos and talked with a few more people, largely out of earshot of the pool.... The pool was ushered out as they sat down to eat.”
But he WILL tax it.
He’s sharp as a marble...
My thoughts as well. He must feel some of his presstitutes are considering leaving his harem or he’d have no need to make such a statement.
I'll consider him maybe even close when he picks up his own suitcases and scleps them to the station on the day he moves out of the White House as HST did.
That event will be almost as happy a day for America as when we won WWII
“did his food tasters try it first?”
I was just wondering the same thing..
but he takes free vacations and air force one trips all’over the world.
yeah paying for one breakfast will really offset that.
Let’s see... He lives in free deluxe accommodations, flies free in a luxery jumbo jet, free heliocopter rides over the peons in traffic, free limo service, free golf, free vacations, free parties with hollyweird sycophants.
A twenty dollar photo op isn’t even pocket change.
Yea, ZerØ’s a real peach of a guy.
Makes me wonder which aide had to fork over HIS $20 bill so O’blammy could appear to be a man of the people.
ooh! good catch! he maybe ordered it just for appearances... he would do something like that...
Oh, yes he does take free food. Where did those 2 twenty dollar bills come from?
Shouldn’t his constituents follow the example?
My head is exploding.
One thing- I know people (including myself) can make such defensive comments when we are self-conscious about something. I thought I was thin-skinned. Obama has no sense of humor about himself (among other things wrong with him) and NEVER should have been in a position of trust. All the things people said about Nixon are true with Obama, but more so.
