OBAMA'S FANCY SNACK

October 17, 2008 --

THOUGH he's battling GOP accusations that he's an Ivy League elitist, Barack Obama has a lifestyle of the rich and famous, like TV show host Robin Leach, who always signed off, "Champagne wishes and caviar dreams!" While he was at a meeting at the Waldorf-Astoria at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Michelle Obama called room service and ordered lobster hors d'oeuvres, two whole steamed lobsters, Iranian caviar and champagne, a tipster told Page Six.

Wait a minute! Like everybody else here (more or less), I think Obama is the Antichrist and so forth but the guy has the right to order whatever he can pay for (or have paid for) off room service. Michelle Obama is not depriving some little kid of his or her minimum calorie allotment by scarfing down some tasty lobster.

Criticizing the famous "arugula" comment was completely fair but this is taking it too far. :D

I think it's safe to conclude, no matter the politician or from which side of the isle,he/she resides, you can trace the money back to who earned it, and find they rarely have equivalent snacks.

The reason the D's and the R's are becoming so similar is because they have slowly evolved the gig into an existence even a millionaire (who actually earns his money) can barely comprehend. And, they love to call themselves "public servants".

I dunno. I always figured Bill was orchestrating a photo op. Not that he (and millions of others) didn't like a tasty McDuck's now and then but I never figured he ate there more than twice a year.

Truthfully, when I travel, I usually eat better than I would on the same day at home. :D

I think the high quality black caviar is OK, but I don't think it goes at all with champagne.

It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks’ greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere… That’s the world! On which hope sits!

In our world, famine ravishes black and brown citizens who make up one-half or two-thirds of the globe, while feasting and gluttony are enjoyed by the minority of persons who inhabit the globe. I don’t know if you have ever been on one of those cruise ships that go to the Caribbean, but you do know of the hunger that is in such places as Haiti. Each week when those ships come back into Miami or San Juan, they dump more food into the Atlantic Ocean or the Caribbean Sea than the hungry citizens in Haiti can find to eat in a lifetime.

Are you sure that receipt is real? I've stayed at the Waldorf recently and I can tell you they will charge (for room service) a lot more than $44.00 for even a split of Bollinger. They charged me (well, not me exactly) around $60 for a bottle of fairly pleasant Merlot.

Could have been a half split. I thought Church of Christ didn't drink anyway.

Page Six Retracts its Michelle Obama Caviar and Lobster Story

The source who told us last week about Michelle Obama getting lobster and caviar delivered to her room at the Waldorf-Astoria must have been under the influence of a mind-altering drug. She was not even staying at the Waldorf. We regret the mistake, and our former source is going to regret it, too. Bread and water would be too good for such disinformation.
