Your Tax Dollar Buys a Pricey Pizza
The privileges of being more equal than any other animal on the farm are sweet. While CEOs are publicly excoriated for traveling by private jet, Comrade Obama just had a chef flown across the country to make him a pizza.
When you're the president of the United States, only the best pizza will do — even if that means flying a chef 860 miles [double that for the round trip].
Chris Sommers, 33, jetted into Washington from St Louis, Missouri, on Thursday with a suitcase of dough, cheese and pans 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.
Now that's a pizza with a presidential-sized carbon footprint. But not to worry, Obama's cap and trade scheme will make it up to the planet by jacking energy prices through the ceiling so that we can't afford to run our AC.

He's taking from those who have pizza and giving to those who don't.
Who's John Gault?

Obama just threw the Giordano family under the bus. If you've had Giordano's Chicago style stuffed pizza, you know what I'm talking about.
Last I knew, you couldn't even bring water through airport security. I guess dough and cheese are OK now. Or did the chef take a private jet?

This proves that obabambi is a total douche nozzle.

Maybe Pelousy stopped by on the way back to DC from San FranFreako in OUR 757 and picked him up.

I do have to point out, after noting that these pizzas are going to produce 65 lbs of CO2 each, just for the flight alone, the tab for the CO2 laden pies is being picked up by Reggie Love, a Chairman 0 aide.

Alan, it had to have been by private jet, largely for the security reasons you described.

What, he didn't send out for ribs?

But Hopey McChange can do no wrong! (SPIT!)

Couldn't the guy patronize some of the local establishments? He could have ordered out from several different ones for the price of this trip. He should try to support LOCAL businesses. Heaven knows DC can use any honest dollar it can get. Whatever happened to "Think Global, Buy Local"?
Or is it really "Do as I say, not as I do"?

I hope my money bought more than just cheese.
I put everything on mine, WAITAMINNIT, I cant afford pizza!!!
I slice a big loaf of french bread in half and make pizza outta that. the kids love it and its less expensive.
(which only matters to the less than equals)

"The little prince of wretched excess. The stuff of downfalls."
Insightful - you've nailed it.

I hope Mr. Sommers remembered the anchovies.
Posted by: Paulster at April 10, 2009 2:21 PM
i'm surprised spurwing hasn't been here to hack UP an anchovie!

Why would Baraky do this, knowing it would make the news and (some) people would blow a fuse over this? How selfish of him to do this. the man thinks of no one but himself and ways others can serve him.

In college I found out, quite by accident, that the best way to keep everyone else in the dorm off my late nite pizza was to include anchovies.
I just happen to like them on my pizza!
At least he didn't keep an entire airport tied up for hours waiting for his own hair stylist!
Imagine: the name Obama printed with the hammer and sickle in place of the "O"

Obama is too good to call up Domino's like the rest of the unwashed proletariat pigs.

It's now "WE won, YOU lost! So shut up, NAZI!"

Why not just teach the White House chef to make the pizzas? It would be a lot cheaper than delivery by Lear Jet.

"If a terrible plague were to wipe out the human race, rats and cockroaches would be well situated to take over the planet. Similarly, trial lawyers stand to make a fortune on the global warming insanity neo-Marxists are using to finish off the economy. As always, a large portion of the loot will be kicked back to the Democrat Party, to ensure that the system remains dysfunctionally corrupt."
Right VanHelsing! If we just had all Republicans in charge of everything, life would be perfect, just like it was only 3 months ago and for almost eight whole years under Cheney and ...what's his name? Obama has ruined everything in less than 3 months.
"...Democrat, bad ...Republican, good." Grunt, sniff, sniff...

It takes a special kind of stupid to copy a blog entry and paste in the wrong thread. Congrats on being special, Anonytroll.

Remember when BILL CLINTON held up the air traffic at that airport so he could get a hair-cut I MEAN WHAT A WASTE
Posted by: SPURWING PLOVER at April 11, 2009 7:34 AM
"hair-cut"? Is that what he called 'em?

I'd like to point out a couple of things left out of your article.
1. Chris Sommers had already planned a business trip to DC and so paid for the flight himself.
2. The president paid for all the rest of the local ingredients needed for the pizza out of his own pocket.
3. This incident cost the taxpayers nothing.
Let the hysterical, right wing lies begin..

Sad. Just sad. It's like arguing with a 12 year old. You do know that all you are doing is betraying the poverty of your philosophy with this kind of silliness, right? *sigh*
