What an incredible and at the same time, a pathetic story.
The best cooks, as far as I am concerned are Navy Stewards and the White House Marxist House is packed full of them. They prepare meals for dignitaries across the known universe and whatever one wants to have for dinner, the Navy Stewards in the White House Marxist House can dream one up. There are no limits. But, that isn't good enough for the Slum Lord community organizer from the south side of Chicago, one Barack Hussein Insane Obama.
Obama got a wild hair up his ass and had a pizza craving. So. What does the fraud do? In a time of theoretical financial doom and gloom, this idiot, this sycophantic tool of Soros decides to order out a pizza. He flies in a pizza chef from Missouri. WTFO? Evidently, the Navy Stewards couldn't concoct the special order and, evidently, there wasn't any pizza shops open in the DC metropolitan area. Can you believe this?
What ever happened to leading by example? In the midst of a "financial crisis" Barack and Michelle Obama seem to be animated by a spirit of livin' large.The American press wasn't interested, so it fell to the UK Daily Mail to reveal that Barack Obama had a chef flown in from St. Louis (complete with cheese, dough, and pans) to make pizzas for himself and 20 White House staffers. [...]
When you're the president of the United States, only the best pizza will do - even if that means flying a chef 860 miles.
Chris Sommers, 33, jetted into Washington from St Louis, Missouri, on Thursday with a suitcase of dough, cheese and pans to to prepare food for the Obamas and their staff.
He had apparently been handpicked after the President had tasted his pizzas on the campaign trail last autumn.
'It's surreal, it's a huge honour,' said Mr Sommers, who owns Pi restaurant in St Louis.
'It will be a casual lunch and hopefully we'll have a chance to say hello to the president.'
Mr Somers was accompanied by this business parnter Ryan Mangilardo who will help prepare the dinner for 140 this evening.
It will feature his signature dishes - ten deep dish and ten thin crust creations.
He is also planning a pizza especially for the president - the Hyde Park topped with chicken and hot sauce. [...]
[...] Barack Obama actually makes Jimmy Carter look good. That has to be his biggest accomplishment to date. [...
From the Policio: Obama imports pies
[...] Not everyone thinks so. Obama hails from a town that takes pride in its pizza.
The Chicago Tribune today quotes Marc Malnati, owner of 30 Lou Malnati's Pizzerias across the Chicago area, reacting to Obama’s Missouri pizza selection:
"I like his economic policy — I think he's going to get us out of trouble. I like his foreign policy — he's making friends around the world. His pizza policy is going to have to change.” [...]
Sarcasm duly noted.
You watch. Some of the self-righteous conservatives (the ones that have said "let's get along with the marxists) will; say this isn't an issue. In and of itself, it isn't an issue if the economy wasn't said to be tanking. It's the principles and the DNC double standard thing that bothers us.
How much does Obama love his pizza? So much that he is willing to fly a chef 860 miles to Washington D.C. to make him a personal pizza. [...]
[...] Hey, you guys know what says you are really sincere about this whole Global Warming thing that you want to use to justify an economy crushing cap and trade program? Jetting a dude across the country to make you a freaking pie.
And you know what says you have a real solid handle on the economic concerns of citizens who are struggling through the recession? Jetting a dude across the country to "hand toss your dough".
It's not as if you can't get pizza in Washington. I know. I eat at Armand's Chicago Pizzeria a lot. It's pretty damn good. And conveniently located on Capitol Hill! I even saw Joe Biden there once. So, you know, you could probably get directions. [...]
Double standards being exposed here.
