All right, we hold elections every four years and we hire these guys. Then they go on $900,000 golf outings, squeeze us for $100,000 in separate vacation expenses, $500,000 FLOTUS romps to Spain; and as much as $200 million a day for a dubious trip to Mumbai!
Now we learn the President of the United States needs a food taster in tow before he can eat lunch with the Senate of the United States?
WASHINGTON — Following President Obama’s lunch meeting with Senate Republicans on Capitol Hill, Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins described the food served and said the president was not able to eat since his “taster” was not present.
“University of Maine recipe for healthy lobster salad — I pointed that out to the president in keeping with the first lady’s initiatives and Fox Family Potato Chips made in Aroostook County where I’m from and wild blueberry pie full of anti-oxidants, see this was a healthy lunch as well. We did have a little ice cream on the pie too, also made in Maine, Gifford’s Ice Cream. So in all seriousness this was well received,” Collins told reporters on Thursday after the meeting at the Capitol.
“Unfortunately, you know, the president can’t,” said Collins when asked if Obama ate at the lunch meeting. “He looked longingly at it,” Collins continued. “He honestly did look longingly at it, but apparently he has to have essentially a taster, and I pointed out to him that we were all tasters for him, that if the food had been poisoned all of us would have keeled over so, but he did look longingly at it and he remarked that we have far better food than the Democrats do, and I said that was because I was hosting.”
Susan Collins in an attempt to assassinate the president? Not to be unkind, but Senator Collins couldn’t find the door without a guide dog.
Just how does one apply for this job? Who is this person and how much do we pay him? We can’t keep White House tours humming but we can cough up the piasters for this mo tard to sample pig on a spit? When does the dwarf-throwing contest begin?
Okay, we realize food tasters are not unique to the Obama presidency, but with George W. Bush there was at least the suggestion of danger; he had Helen Thomas in the press pool.
Mr. President, you have eaten dog. The First Pooch can’t take this risk? What, are you saving him for Thanksgiving?
