"You want fries?" asks Obama — playing a burger-gofer in an inane sequence for NBC cameras.

And no, despite that HuffPo headline, he does not get “frustrated.” He’s being comical. Watch the video. You’ll see. You’ll also see Brian Williams — I’m thinking of the car scene — gesticulating in a way that can only be described as douchey.

What is a "burger-gofer".

Titusisdoingbacktonightatthegym said...

Brian Williams in the beginning of the clip is awful.

The clip with him and Rahm Emanuel is equally awful.

I would do Rahm though in a jewish second.

Titusisdoingbacktonightatthegym said...

I love the thin women in their cute black sleeveless dresses in some of Rahm's meetings though.

Fabulous.

Once a political unit gets beyond the size of a small city the sense of having any input in how one is governed evaporates. Obama payed for his burger and fries out of his own pocket? Ooh, I feel so connected.

Saul said...

My only problem with the sequence was that I thought he was going to get burgers from a real burger joint. Five Guys is a chain, and I've eaten there and it sucks. There are plenty of cool places to eat in DC and Five Guys isn't one of them.

"douche-iness"

Ha ha ha ha ha!

Al'tish, that's French!

Jeremy said...

Is there ANYTHING Ann or the local wingnuts will not criticize relating to President Obama?

A week or so ago the "major" complaint related to the fact that the guy doesn't like ketchup on his burger.

*I know you're all going to find this hard to believe, but LOTS of people eat mustard, instead of ketchup on their burgers. (Some even like cheese...while some don't.)

Yesterday it was his date with Michelle to a Broadway show "costing" the taxpayers sooooooo much money.

Well, where were the hell were you idiots when George W. Bush ran off to his really cool ranch in Crawford on a regular basis so he could bicycle and act like he was clearing brush...running up a taxpayer flight expense tab of over $17,407,544?? (All while we were fighting a "War On Terror" and the economy was being neglected.)

Between the "Queen" setting the tone, and the immediate whining, bitching and sucking up via her loyal servants...it's like listening to the high-pitched squeal of a bunch of spoiled little brats who feel they're not getting their way.

Well, here's a news flash: Obama won.

YOU lost.

Get the fuck over it.

Curtiss said...

Wow! Obama went to Five Guys. In spite of what Saul said, I like Five Guys. I went there the other day.

Obama is just like me! I'm expecting Brian Williams for a shoot at my office real soon.

Oh, and Jeremy: When Bush traveled to Texas to ride his bike and clear brush or whatever, and spent millions of dollars, he was duly criticized. It comes with the territory. To suggest that Bush wasn't criticized is simply preposterous.

So, here's a news flash for you, Jeremy: Obama won.

WE lost. Now it's your turn.

Get the fuck over it.

Palladian said...

"Well, here's a news flash: Obama won.

WHO lost? I DIDN'T run FOR PRESIDENT, Gene OLSON.

Gene, get it through YOUR thick, ugly HEAD. Obama IS NOT YOUR president. YOU didn't win anything (EXCEPT maybe that PLUM TEACHING JOB at SANTA MONICA college.) OBAMA is OUR PRESIDENT, the PRESIDENT of the UNITED states. THEREFORE WE have every RIGHT to criticize, MOCK, DISAGREE, DEMONIZE and DISLIKE him, JUST AS you had (AND TOOK) every OPPORTUNITY TO do the same to YOUR PREVIOUS president GEORGE w. BUSH.

GET USED to it, you fucking DOUCHEY PRICK.

avwh said...

I tell you what, Jeremy: as soon as Obama stops blaming anything and everything on Bush, I'll get the fuck over that he won. Until then, I'll criticize everything and anything that that pompous, arrogant twit does or says, because he's had a free pass up until now. And because your side taught us for 8 long years that dissent was the greatest form of patriotism.

And he hasn't yet figured out the buck stops with HIM when you're POTUS (or even TOTUS), because he's never been held accountable for a damn thing thus far as a politician (all those hundreds of votes "present", lowering the bar for a "clean, well-spoken minority", as his Veep even said).

Jeremy said...

AVWH - Show me a recent link where Obama mentions anything negative about George W. Bush.

Jeremy said...

Palladian - You couldn't run for anything other than fattest loser on the block.

Can I assume you didn't vote?

Not qualified to vote?

Jeremy said...

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

Jeremy defended Obama.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

Palladian said...

Let's see your picture, Gene. Are you fat? Are you bald? Do you have titties? Do you have a neck-wattle? Do you have snot in your mustache?

Everyone look for Gene Olson's picture on the internet. He lives in California. Don't you want to see what he looks like?

Ron said...

"Y'all want douche with those fries?"

"No thanks -- just vinegar and salt this time!"

Jeremy said...

I realize this isn't as important than Obama's burger order, but...

Milton Bearden, a former Central Intelligence Agency Pakistan station chief who served at the agency for three decades, says:

"If the Bush administration had proof of a plot stopped by enhanced interrogation, they would have produced it," Bearden says. “I cannot imagine that the system would not have leaked such a story,” he insists. “It would have been leaked in a New York minute.”

*Oh, and Bearden does eat ketchup on his burger.

THE LOCALS said...

Palladian - Why are you infatuated and obsessed with Jeremy?

He appears to have you under his thumb.

chickenlittle said...

Have XWL stake him out. He lives around Santa Monica and is always looking to shoot photos.

Curtiss said...

Milton Bearden, a former Central Intelligence Agency Pakistan station chief who served at the agency for three decades.....

I bet he's never been to Five Guys, ketchup or not. If he had, it would have been leaked in a New York minute.

Jim said...

Since the Left taught us that "dissent is the highest form of patriotism" over the last 8 years and those that supported the president were just mindless, brainwashed idiots then it's safe to assume that Jeremy is less patriotic, less independent-minded, and less intelligent than he was just 6 months ago...and he seems intent on proving it with every post.

holdfast said...

Hey Idjit - you WON - you can stop campaigning now and do your damned job! Unless, of course, all you know how to do is to campaign and actually doing you job is a bore?

Jeremy said...

Ohhhhhhhhhh, Chickenshit...and Jimmy and Palladian...and Curtis...I love dissent...I just think there are other things more important that hamburgers.

As for my picture...I'm flattered...

Do ALL of you want to meet me?

Do ALL of you want my picture?

Chase said...

I didn't vote for Obama, and I won't vote for him next time, and I don't agree with most of his policies, but damn, I'd hang out with the guy.

In fact,I'd live to have a week with him, W and Bill Clinton on an eating tour from New Orleans to Chicago.

Curtiss said...

Jeremy: ...I just think there are other things more important that (sic) hamburgers.

Perhaps you should convey that to Obama and Brian Williams.

Sheriff Joe seems to think highly of hamburgers, too. He likes jalapenos and swiss cheese on his. And ketchup.

I never have ketchup on my burgers. Why have ketchup when it already has tomatoes?

Sorin said...

What a fun blog. It starts with a little pussy acting like a kitten, jumps to Big O the Burgermiester then on to a bi-coastal cat fight between two college teachers. My money is on Palladian. Oh,and the word for the day is "douche-iness". Does it get any better than this?

AJ Lynch said...

For Jeremy/ Gene:

From the Santa Monica College syllabus:

"This course satisfies the Santa Monica College Global Citizenship requirement."

Global citizen? What kind of libtard, socialist crap is that Gene? Does it make your douchiness permanent?

traditionalguy said...

That was quite a performance by Pres. Obama. Only Brian Wiliams seemed unreal. Obama did a terrific TV spot and made it look easy.

garage mahal said...

What kind of pathetic loser spends hours researching on the internet to find out the identity and occupation of an anonymous blog commenter he hates, just so they can come back and berate that commenter on that blog?

Hi Palladian!

Pogo said...

Consider it Jeremy/Michael/Gene/Lucky's internet douche.

He was beginning to be 'not so fresh.'

Jeremy said...

Pogo...Kevin, whatever: I know you want me. I know you love me. I know you want me.

Sorry, little man...I'm married.

Palladian appears to be available, though...if you like overweight losers.

Send him a picture.

He likes pictures.

kentuckyliz said...

Hours? Type in Gene Olson Santa Monica College CA in the little google searchbox and poof, info. Doesn't take hours.

Douches shouldn't be used as insults. Clean orifices are a good thing.

L. E. Lee said...

BTW, I have found out Pogo and Palladian are the same person. I can not believe no one else has not figured that one out.

jeff said...

"Do ALL of you want my picture?"

Can I get it on two-ply?

Gene, you may love dissent, but I love desert so fuck you. Want some humble pie?

William said...

It takes a certain amount of commitment to find anything either admirable or rephrensible in Obama's hamburger run.....It is uncomfortable to eat a sloppy burger in an expensive suit among luxurious appointments. So why bother? They're a swell bunch of regular guys, but we already knew that.

Jeremy said...

Jeanine - What does you love of the desert have to do with any of this?

Oh, wait...lack of spelling skills?

Jeremy said...

kentuckyliz - I really hope you morons aren't bothering some poor guy at Santa Monica college.

If so, you're liable to find yourself in trouble.

Jeremy said...

Jeanine want to know what wit you peoples?

Why you not like the desert?

It hot.

EDH said...

After asking his question with the douchey hand gestures, Williams seems to look in every direction except Obama's, hardly interested in the President's response.

Yet, here's the best part of the whole segment.

Obama is on MSNBC. So, when Williams asks him about clicking by talking head shows, Obama mentions MSNBC hosts and guests -- only to say they only talk in "set pieces," that that it's like pro wrestling, and he doesn't learn anything from them.

That should be good for MSNBC's dismal ratings.

mcg said...

A Five Guys just opened up out here, I'll have to check it out. I doubt it will take the place of In'n'Out burger in my heart, though---both figuratively and literally (i.e., plaque). P. Terry's is my rebound burger.

Palladian said...

"BTW, I have found out Pogo and Palladian are the same person. I can not believe no one else has not figured that one out."

Wow, I didn't know I was Pogo! Now I can be my own doctor!

Palladian said...

I need to remember to ask myself if doctors are allowed to write prescriptions for themselves.

Pogo said...

Palladian's much funnier as Palladian.
His Pogo schtick is tres lame.

And yes, you, er, I can write myself prescriptions, except for the good stuff.

People ask questions when you keep refilling the transdermal fentanyl every day.

Beta blockers?
All you can eat. Have at it.

Palladian said...

I was thinking more along the lines of anything ending in -zepam...

Freeman Hunt said...

You don't need a prescription for that. You just buy the can and turn the key.

Richard Dolan said...

How did "you want fries?" turn into a thread like this? -Zipam? A wonder to behold, of the conversation-as fractal sort.

veni vidi vici said...

"What is a "burger-gofer"."

Burger-gofering is an activity involving the insertion of happy meal toys and Ronald McDonald bobblehead dolls up one's ass.

veni vidi vici said...

"transdermal fentanyl"

That sounds like the name of a practice best engaged in with an anonymous partner in a bath-house.
