Comments on: Who’s in the tank at Obama’s White House luau? http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/06/25/whos-in-the-tank-at-obamas-white-house-luau/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: salty56 http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/06/25/whos-in-the-tank-at-obamas-white-house-luau/comment-page-1/#comment-392640 Tue, 30 Jun 2009 17:52:53 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=18070#comment-392640 Hawaiian Nachos are huge favorite at Southern Californa Luau’s. An Ocean Beach resident, came up with a delicious island twist on an old favorite. The key is finding a good “loader”. That is the name used to describe a tortilla chip that can stand up under the weight of huge chunks of kālua pork, mango pineapple salsa, topped with a creamy white sauce of jalapenos, cheese, and sour cream. The perfect “loader” for “Aloha Nachos” is a Whale Tail shaped Tortilla Chips created by a local family. Their hearty tortilla chips are certified organic, kosher, naturally gluten free, and the shape, a whale’s tail, makes them a perfect “loader”. The flavor of the chips comes from the use of Hawaiian Red Alaea infused into sun dried gourmet Hawaiian Sea Salt.

I’m glad to see you’re a champion of free speech rights, Norman. I’ll have to go back over the last 8 years worth of articles here and comb the comments to see how emphatic you were about the last administration preserving our constitutional rights.

It’s only a sin when the other guys are doing it, isn’t it?

When in a Democracy we are to challenge those that work for the American people to do the best for us.
Right now I see this left leaning President calling for the return to power of a leftist in Honduras that wanted to change the Constitution so that he might have power forever. This President has not openly stated this is what he wants for himself but it would appear so. He is supporting those goals by wanting to return Zelaya to power.
We hold these truths to be self evident. Freedom of speech and thought is what allows us to improve and not being held back by those that surrendered to an ideology.

We have to cut back on our parties – why don’t they? Because they live in a different world than we do – they don’t get it.

In the grander scheme of things, this is likely not the worst abuse of public funds out there, either, if you choose to call this an abuse. This is an annual event, and is business as usual for the White House. It is when it is no longer business as usual that we need worry, for that will foreshadow real economic peril.

Eleanor instructed the kitchen personnel to keep food prepared sometimes twenty four hours a day to feed the hungry coming to their estate looking for food or work.

The history of Eleanor being Franklin’s eyes and ears around the country is well documented. Both of them lived their lives in service to this country. Regardless of how one feels about their politics and views, they deserve great respect as no other presidential family since gave so much of themselves to the country.

Michelle Obama has the daunting of raising two children in the seat of the most powerful Nation on the planet. I think it would be far healthier for the President’s children to be raised out of the spotlight so they can lead as normal a childhood as possible. It would probably be healthier for the American public. But then again that is up to the media, not the Presidential family.

One of the few things I have liked about the WH.

Nice to see the White House press corps has its priorities straight.

It’s an annual event, so it’s not like it’s the first time there was a congressional picnic. Just so happens this one was the first “Hawaiian luau”.

You and I also footed the bill for that!!!!! How many mouths would $250,000 feed for those who are having difficulty putting food on the table for their families!
