whatsupchuck: Obama is expected to pick up the tab for his entire security detail, that's the point


Expected to by whom? Did Bush do this? Clinton? HW? Reagan?

ginandbacon: The per diem for federal workers in Manhattan is $216. I think they'll survive.

ginandbacon: Oh hang on, this was Rochester so the per diem would have been $96. Still...


I'm glad you corrected that, but that's part of the reason I insist on using New York City for the New York City, and New York for the state.

Sorry.  My second sentence was supposed to trip your sarcasm detector.  He is expected to only by idiots such as the author of TFA.

ginandbacon: ArkAngel: ginandbacon: colinspooky: Doesn't all that money come out of the same pot anyway?  Presidential salary, secret service, White House staff, military, roads, all that stuff will come out of the taxpayer pot. So I am assuming the subby's low level irritating is whether this group of staff paid for their lunch with their wages or expenses?

Does the President have a per diem? I'm honestly not sure. Everyone else does but is he a regular GS level employee? I have no idea how to figure that out. If he isn't, then he pays for meals out of pocket. His detail can expense anything as long as they don't go over. It varies by region and time of year but it would be hard to go over in most places. It's a pretty generous per diem.

He has an expense account. I believe it is $50,000.

Are you sure it's not $50,000,000? I feel like I heard that on Fox.


Yes but you can't get 34 warships and an aircraft carrier through the St. Lawrence locks in so short an amount of time. After all it is just across the lake from those socialist commies in Toronto.

Saners: tl;dr version:

Dear Mr. President: We ate at the same deli at different times. And I'll also take the time to take a few underhanded swipes at both you and the first lady. The end.

"Karen Miltner has been writing about food for the Democrat and Chronicle since 2000"

She really should stick to food. Political reporting just isn't her bag.

So are you posting that in earnest, or just so we can laugh at yet another pathetic attempt at Republican "humor"?

 Are you are supposed to be outraged no matter what he does.

HypnozombieX: Are you are supposed to be outraged no matter what he does.


Look at the reaction to Michelle Obama telling kids to eat healthy and get out of the house.
The answer is yes.

Well, I'm done aimlessly frolicking for now.

What is this vbob thingy?

Is it a new toy I should play with?

xanadian: I think I'm more outraged on how retarded the article was.


Yeah, what the f*ck was that even about?!? The President went out and ordered some food and talked with some people? THIS IS JOURNALISM???

We're supposed to be outraged when Obama inhales, exhales, and eats crackers like he owns the place.

/Well, not literally eating "crackers..."

Although according to the imdb, he stayed in character even when not on the set during the filming of "The Last King of Scotland."

Whitaker was a more believable Idi Amin than Idi Amin was!
