A dining tour through Obama’s hometowns

Whatever your political stance on President Barack Obama this campaign season, he’s one well-traveled U.S. commander-in-chief — and he certainly knows his regional foods. Here are some of his favorite bites in the eight cities that can claim the 44th U.S. president as a local, along with two favored vacation spots the Obama family visits regularly.

this man and his ideals are frightening! Why are we punishing success while rewarding mediocraty and irresponsibility? What ever happened to making your own way? The beutiful thing about the USA is that everyone has the same opportunity to succeed. I for one am sick and GD tired of our ever growing helpless populous. If we would get back to making the USA a globally competetive nation, instead of catering to F'n labor unions and special interest groups, maybe we could create a few jobs.

A regular guy... A true man of the people,

What you did do was show your bias (again) as a liberal left-wing propaganda provider for the man you obviously see as some deity to be appeased (worshipped?)

Yeah. A regular guy. A true man of the people. Oooops what about his $100 a pound steak dinners

held weekly in the white house. Drinking $300 a bottle of champage with Beyonce et al at a fund raiser.

He eats cheap on his own dime but the sky is the limit when someone else picks up the tab.

You Lie    He is not the president   When he goes in November, we will get to see his records.  Passports,  S.S.  Cards,  Real Birth records.  He has admitted he is Kenyan.  You do not believe your god?

Oh, BTW, even Kenyan officials have said he was born in Kenya. What happented to Misprison of Felony? His kenyan a55 should be run right out of the White House.

What about from his homeland in Kenya?

What is so sad is this, No matter where your political stand is, you think you can trust the news media to tell the news.  Everyone in office has got to go, we will lose a few good ones, But then I do not remember anyone sreaming to stop the BS spending over the last decades.  We look at more money but not any common sense cuts in spending. No jail time for bankers who stole BILLIONS. We are in real trouble.
