In a follow-up to yesterday's 'Media Still Fawning Over Obama' post, here's today's example (not written by Christine Simmons; Ben Feller was the reporter this time).
ARLINGTON, Va. – It's like this: When you want a burger, you have to have a burger. In this state of mind, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden took a short — but wholly noticeable — motorcade ride from the White House to Virginia and pulled into a small, independent burger joint called Ray's Hell Burger.
The two leaders went right up to the counter where the meat was being grilled and ordered.
Each fetched cash from his pocket and paid, and then the pair stood like the rest and waited for their number to be called before going to a table.
The restaurant, which prides itself on premium aged 10-ounce burgers, sits in a small strip plaza. The burgers sell for $6.95.
First of all, most peoople do wait in line to order food - no surprise. Second, do we really care that POTUS and VPOTUS went to a burger joint?
Third, how much taxpayer money was spent so that Pres. Obama and Vice Pres. Biden could go get a hamburger and a photo-op at the same time?
