OBAMA TREATS MILITARY VETS TO LUNCH…THEN LEAVES WITHOUT PAYING THE BILL
Made popular 369 days ago in
Barack Obama isn’t necessarily known for being fiscally responsible, but it seems he may be a bit oblivious when it comes to personal finances as well as national.
Amid the bustle of President Obama’s surprise stop for barbecue Wednesday the White House apparently overlooked one key detail: the bill.
Celebrating Father’s Day early, the president had lunch with two service members and two local barbers at Kenny’s BBQ on Capitol Hill.
As the group chatted about fatherhood, the president enjoyed a steaming plate of pork ribs with hot sauce, collard greens, red beans and rice and cornbread.
The bill for the president and his four guests was $55.58, but was left unpaid at the point of sale, according to pool reports.
Ironically, the move follows Obama’s declaration that Republicans left him the bill for a steak dinner on the economy.
Obama representatives settled this particular debt by the end of the day, and the servicemen (at least during the meal) seemed to be enjoying their time.
However, at least if the CBS video of the event is any indication, the president spent a significant percentage of the meal praising the values of barber shops– though perhaps his praise of the military was just not as heavily featured in the clip.

Does this help support the disdain the military has for Obama and the democRAT party?
Yes, of course, he merely uses the military for props.
No, there are too many reasons to list on why the majority of military and those who formerly served in the military do not trust Obama nor the democRATs to defend us and support them.
This is not a scientific survey,
to learn more. Results may not total 100% due to rounding and voting descrepencies.
