No Domino’s Or Pizza Hut In Washington D.C.?

As we are being asked by the Obama administration to change light bulbs, drive smaller cars, decrease our carbon footprint and go green because global warming is so dire that the administration is discussing radical technologies to cool the Earth's air, how hypocritical that B HO decides to satisfy his love for pizza by flying in a Pizza Chef 860 miles from St. Louis, Missouri to prepare specialty pizza’s for he and his staff, some 140 people today.

Reported in the UK Daily Mail, we read that Obama flew in Chris Sommers, 33 and his business partner Ryan Mangilardo of the Pi restaurant in St. Louis to prepare the pizza that Obama discovered during the campaign and called the best pizza he ever tasted.

The pretentiousness of Obama in flying two chefs from St. Louis and back can only be rivaled by John Edwards $400.00 haircut before he dropped out of the campaign.

While I have no doubt the Pi Restaurant does make a fantastic pizza, what was the cost to taxpayers for pizza chefs to fly to Washington D.C. just for “a casual lunch” when I am sure Washington D.C. hosts some very fine Pizzerias that undoubtedly also make some very good pizzas and most likely would deliver?

Also important, when we are being told we must make due, cutback and even accept tax increases to help the economy improve, does it make economic sense to pander to politicians and their staff in this sort of pretentious display?

If taxpayers did not pay for this pizza and travel, which I highly doubt, just what carbon footprint was created to feed Obama and his staff this “casual luncheon?”

I was always taught a leader leads by example. As we are told we must make sacrifices, shouldn’t Obama and his staff also sacrifice instead of catering their whims and taste buds when local pizza’s would suffice and feed all?

Sommers and Mangilardo consider this an honor and in recognition of their pizza ability, I’m sure it is.

But in respect to a faltering economy and dire claims of global warming, I find it to be a haughty display of an appalling sense of entitlement.

Maybe there is a subliminal message that Pi’s signature specialty pizza just for Obama, the “Hyde Park,” is topped with chicken and hot sauce!

Isn’t it a comfort to know that when you and I struggle to make ends meet and can barely afford Pizza Hut’s 555 deal, Obama flies in two chef’s just to hand toss pizza for his staff luncheon?

Just another example of Obama’s “Yes, I Can,” while he looks down his nose at us with “No, You Can’t”

2010 is not that far away.

A master pizzateer would be in awe at how fast this is being spun by the Obamapologists. According to this, the pizza maker was already flying commercially to DC on a planned business trip. You know, it was just another of the many routine business trips that pizza makers make to DC all the time. It's not explained how it came to pass that Obama knew this guy was coming to Washington, or when plans were cooked up for the pizza party, but it's being shouted from the rooftops that Obama was going to pay the costs out of his own pocket, just like he does for all his meals, I guess.

It's all BS, of course, and contrary to all other printed accounts, but that's their story and they're sticking to it.

And Obama didn't bow to that Saudi potentate either. It was just a curtsy.

This group spins faster than the Clinton's ever did.

Don't forget, the O really was born in Hawaii. It's his party and fathers family in Kenya that are lying.

The spinmeistering begs a couple minor thoughts on this unsubstantiated spin, Pogue.

Since the Pizza chefs were on a “planned business trip,” how is they find time to hand toss pizza for 140 people? Did they forget their “planned business trip?”

Also, just how did Obama learn his favorite pizza guys were in town on a “planned business trip” to take time out of their busy schedules to hand toss pizza for 140 people?

Clinton had better spin when he declared “I did not have sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinski.”
