Here's the background: In the award-winning (fictional) show, the president's chief of staff suggests an open house event in homage to President Andrew Jackson, who threw a kind of old-school happy hour of regular citizens and staff at the White House in 1837.
...
No actual cheese, at least in the literal sense, appears to be involved in the upcoming event.



No actual citizens will be either, to be sure.

I've often wondered how long it'll be before we take Jackson off our money, given how painfully racist and just plain evil he was capable of being, especially in regards to the Cherokees and his dismissal of the Supreme Court's ruling.

But then I consider how he felt about the US having their own government-regulated banking system, and I start to feel like it might be karmic justice to have his face slapped on the most popular bill we have.

Why did 0bama invite notorious drug-abusing foreign leader Rob Ford to his "cheese party"?

Some say it's because 0bama, fresh off of his endorsement of marijuana, is encouraging usage of the deadly street drug "cheese" which was covered here on Fox News years ago.

http://www.foxnews.com/story/2007/07/19/texas-stores-pull-tylenol-pm -a s-youths-use-it-to-create-heroin-mix-cheese/

We report, you decide.

The level of hatred in both the story comments and the comments on the video are bizarre.

It's less the box of cheese and more the box of crackers that Obama's eating.

By the way, my favorite YouTube video comment was "Your tax dollars at work..." which, I'm pretty sure, was meant to be a negative for reasons unexplained.

This is completely awesome! I'm going to come up with a question, preferably involving cold fusion and the Trilateral Commission, that I want to direct to Allison Janney, because she did the best slow burn.
 
2014-01-25 07:32:47 PM  
Don't condemn Jackson and then give the rest of the country a pass. Attitudes towards natives at the time are pretty reprehensible across the board.

/Judge people by the time they lived in, but don't forget that we should be smarter and more aware of the world 175 years later.

Well, he did get us Fark's favorite state. And to be fair, it was the early 1800s. People could own other people as property. Being painfully racist and evil was the law of the land back then.

Andrew Jackson's cheese party always cracks me up because it sounds like a wild keg party that got out of hand.

Jon Meacham's biography of Andrew Jackson, "American Lion," had the strange effect of making me think less of both the author and the subject.

Calling a White House public event "cheese" seems fitting.

Joe Biden will be in charge of cutting the cheese continuously throughout.  He'll be responding appropriately to posts with ROFLs, WTFs and EABDs.

I hope to represent my uncovering of the biggest conspiracy of them all: water fountains. Yes, water fountains, for they are really just a front for socialism. You're sharing that free water, just like you'd share that free money. The tendrils of this go far. Even so called "doctors" claim you should drink plenty of water. Who are these "doctors"? Who do they work for? You don't need water, that's just a lie concocted by the heads of the conspiracy. I haven't drank a single glass of water in over nine months, and I feel just fine drinking only real American Coke-a-Cola. Sure, my piss has turned black and is the consistency of tar, but that's a small price to pay to be free of the shackles of Big Aqua.

I'm sure they'll have a bevy of pre-screened, vetted, and primed astroturfers on line to ask canned "questions", so I don't know how you can be so cynical.

AJ felt that the executive branch should not be burdened with the rigors of the processes of the other two branches.  The author I cited earlier repeatedly explains better than I how both Bush 2 and Obama directly parallel his vision of the office of the presidency more than any other presidents.

I hadn't heard of this book or its author, so I looked into it. The first review to appear on Google opens thusly:

"William Nester's The Age of Jackson and the Art of American Power, 1815-1848, poses as an objective historical analysis of Andrew Jackson's exercise of power as both general and president, but in reality is a mix of ideological judgments and political psychobabble."

Pass.
