Barack Obama's 850 Mile Pizza Run

Fair and Balanced Update: The Pizza Guy Paid His Own Way

Hmmm. It's good to be king. I wonder how much this cost the tax payer?

The Sun reports:

Barack Obama liked a restaurant’s pizzas so much he has flown the chef 850 miles to make some at the White House.

The US President got a taste for Chris Sommers’ pizza while campaigning in St Louis, Missouri, last year.

After Mr Obama’s election win, Chris offered to deliver frozen pizzas to the White House but was told he couldn’t because of security concerns.

So he took 20lb of dough and three gallons of sauce to Washington.

Chris was due to cook lunch at the White House yesterday, reported He said: “It’s surreal. It’s a huge honour.”

  1. Oh, dear. The Sun really bollixed this story. Turns out that (1) the pizza business paid all expenses; (2) the pizza chefs were previously scheduled to be in DC anyway; and (3) the WH did not have anybody “flown” to DC; the pizza chefs flew commercial coach at their own expense.
    AOL News and Politico did something The Sun never thought of doing: they actually talked to the guys who own the pizza business. Oh, and that quote that The Sun offers? It’s via Politico.

  2. If Barack Obama's other orifice could speak, what would he say?(parody) BHO Taileprompter

  3. NO wonder the MUSLIM TERRORIST PIRATES still have the captain hostage:

    Obama could not be bothered to give the NAVY Seals the "GO" signal because he had parties to plan and attend !

    SO OBAMA has the mighty military on "stand down", because the frat boy wonder is having a Pizza Kegger at the WH.


  4. The "chef" Chris Sommers flew commercial.
    Not only that, he flew coach.
    Not only that, he had already planned a business trip to DC, so the restaurant paid for his travel!

    Looks like the "I am a Republic so I have to be against non-Republicans no matter what" people are stirring again.
    Fair and balanced, people, look it up. Grow up.
