Nothing But The Best... For Them

While Americans long for jobs that aren't being created, and while you chomp on your carrot stick, stew on this...

Obamas Depleting U.S. Lobster Supply


Vacationing President To Press: "We're Buying Shrimp, Guys. Come On."

I HOPE this CHANGES soon.

Michelle LOVES her lobster! I believe she had lobster one night in a NYC hotel while Obama was speaking somewhere..with champagne, remember? QUITE a couple :-)

As for lobster tempura? OH, MY GOSH! I WANT SOME!
oh. but I shouldn't spend the money. I have to be careful these days.....and, of course, I'm just a citizen and Michelle's.........

Amazing. As I said at Chuck's, here in the midwest the ONLY kind of meat that is affordable is high fat hamburger and pork.

Fish/shrimp is a luxury, and especially so is lobster! Particularly for fresh!

These a-holes are cavorting like FRENCH ROYALTY.

OT, for the Cube. :)

Z: I don't begrudge anyone spending their money on whatever they wish. I do find it annoying when our tax dollars are being spent on two hypocrites that are constantly berating me to cut back.

Brooke: Fish and lobster isn't cheap here in Florida either. They are treats at our house as well. So is certified organic arugula ;-)

BTW the cube bracelet was such a good idea. Sold out too. Why didn't I think of that?

Are they having to eat without their own WH chefs to prepare their meals? Poor babies.

Chuck said...

Let them eat cake

Cube: The more you think about it, isn't this where we want Obama?

If we can convince him to spend the rest of his term on vacation, and eat shrimp instead of abuse his executive branch powers, I think the country might come out way ahead.

Heck, I'd not even mind the taxpayers footing the bill for lobster dinners every night for Obama's remaining 876 days in office as long as it kept him away from other activites.

dmarks said...

Let's see. If he had spent his first 365 days in office on Martha's Vinyard, eating lobster dinners every night, the cost to the taxpayer for those meals would be from $20,000 to $25,000 total.

That's a lot of money.

However, an inactive vacationing lobster-cnowing President Obama would not have signed all those bailouts, stimulus giveaways, and healthscare scams.

That's trillions of dollars saved. Even more money.

So, eat up, Mr. President. Have the same thing tomorrow... and tomorrow...
