Cheeseburger and the President

By • Jun 4th, 2009 • Category: Burger Blog

What Obama eats becomes news the next day.

And so, when President Barack Obama grabbed lunch from a fast-food restaurant in Washington one day, the press scrambled to get the skinny on his order.


What did he eat?

What did he drink?

Did he look like he is thinking about how to re-tool the economy while he ate?

I’m not sure if cheeseburger for lunch could inspire a guy to untold heights of nation-building powers, but this was what the president ordered: a cheeseburger with tomato, lettuce, mustard, and jalapaneo peppers, and several more cheeseburgers for take-out.

The president is not the only Obama who loves cheeseburgers. So does his wife, who confesses to making cheeseburger runs.

I’m not sure about you, but I think I’d like to give this guy a break. He loves cheeseburgers, that much we already know from reports. And I’m sure every time he takes a bite, he forgot all about politics, all about the recession. It was just him and his cheeseburger, and the fact that it tasted so glorious he must have felt like he had gained the ability to teleport (or swing more votes).

But I’ll have to admit, each time I think of Obama snacking on a cheeseburger while worrying over how to secure the financial freedom of the freeworld, I feel a forlorn little gurgle in my belly and I tear up. Can’t a man enjoy his cheeseburger in privacy?

President or not, at the end of the day, the guy is no different from us. He probably wishes his waistline were a little smaller, and that Dijon mustard (which he loves on his cheeseburger) wouldn’t wreck so much havoc on his cholesterol count.
