Barack Obama may have lost a few approval rating points with this move. The president was seen cutting the line at Austin's Franklin Barbecue Thursday afternoon, while in town to raise money for the Democratic Party. Lives at the eatery are infamously long, and have been known to stretch as long as three hours wait.But Mr Obama did no waiting today, as he showed up at the restaurant, shook a few hands and made his way straight to the register to order more than $300 worth of meat. 'I know this is a long line. I feel real bad, but – I’m gonna cut' Obama said. Even restaurant owner Aaron Franklin said the move was unheard of. 'That's out thing, no one skips the line...except Obama,' Mr Franklin told the Statesman.

It is good to be the King! Of course we have to learn about Obama acting more like a absolute monarch than the president of a republic from the British press.

Haven’t people put together that Obama is a psychological bully?

In fairness, the line was red. He knew there would be no consequence for crossing it.

It’s Austin, he probably still has a 75% approval rate in that Lefty town, cut in line or not.

As much as I despise Obama, one cannot expect the president to wait in line for 3 hours.

Doesn’t the President travel with his own chef on Air Force One?

He could have had the same meal on our dime without inconveniencing anyone.

Having his people call in an order to go would not make for a photo op that Obama has no interest in not doing.

Then he should choose a restaurant that doesn’t have a three hour wait.

Then don’t go, period.

He’s there on a FUNDRAISING trip, not truly official business. Don’t disrupt the lives of everyday citizens has usually been the attitude of past presidents, except maybe clinton. Not this POS. He’s the PINO, president in name only because he doesn’t bother to do anything to benefit the Constitution, the Republic, or the working citizens of this nation; unless it benefits him personally.

FUBO & FAD

It is time.

One can expect someone on the President's team to do so, or, to pick another eatery where he won't be cutting in front of those who have been waiting 3 hours.

But then he wouldn’t have gotten that photo op.

I shouldn’t have to wait 3 hrs in the unemployment line, but I did in 2010, due to his policies.

I read where LBJ could hardly go out in public during the Vietnam War days. But now, Obama, who’s screwed up everything he’s touched and is doing his best to insure America’s demise, has no trouble yucking it up with white people in CO and TX.

Where’s the outrage with all he’s doing to harm this country?

Is America really over already?
