Today, President Obama celebrated Father’s Day the same way he celebrates every day: by eating his fill, then sticking someone else with the tab. Hanging out with two service members and two barbers at Kenny’s BBQ in Washington, D.C., Obama enjoyed pork ribs with hot sauce, greens, red beans, cornbread, and the works. The total bill was some $55.58. Obama ran out before paying.
Yesterday, you’ll recall, President Obama explained that President Bush had eaten a steak dinner and then run out without paying the tab: “It’s like somebody goes to a restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, a martini and all that stuff, then just as you’re sitting down they leave and accuse you of running up the tab.”
President Obama does that sort of stuff on a fiscal level, too. Until today, we didn’t know he did it literally.
