President Obama -- This Chili Dog Tastes Ironic

6/5/2011 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The day after his wife unveiled a new USDA guide for healthy eating, President Barack Obama stopped at Rudy's Hot Dog in Toledo, OH and scarfed down two chili dogs ... with fries.

Thanks for nothing but pettiness TMZ. And giving a platform to idiot racists who claim as a Muslim, O shouldn't be eating pork. I didn't know you were required reading for the KKK...or is this just mor the B Teams efforts to appear relevant. You should close this toilet down on the weekends and let your tea bags and bags post on Craigslist...where crap like this belongs.

Thsi is not the first time this has happened... The double standard of "Do as I say, not as I do..." is sickening because you know the attitude doesn't settle with food choice -- We can give up our SUV's but he's running the engines out of Air Force One (Not too mention the carbon footprints or cost of jet fuel...). We can restructure the food guidelines in school (which will raise the bill, cause schools more budget trouble - they depend on those discounts) but he's caught eating anything while her garden dies from neglect. Our kids have to strive for better education while his go to private school and go with one of the parents to Spain... He can take Michelle out for a NYC date night, cost the tax payers over $26,000 and still tell the struggling people our economy is fine, despite $4.00 gal of gas costing the families any extra money for a trip to Wendy's.
Yeah, gotta love the double standard. Love it so much, I'll be counting down to Novmember 2012

As a Canadian I can't help but laugh at this ridiculous story. Who cares if the President eats a chili dog??? Big whoop!
I hope Canada doesn't follow suit and start posting stories about what our Prime Minister eats for lunch! Too funny!

Those who voted for Bush twice over need to convince themselves that Obama is the worst president ever...because the alternative is that they accept responsibility for having electing the worst president EVER, G.W. Bush.

Yep, here come the ignorant and hateful "racist" comments. Disagree with ANYONE, other than a white person, and here comes the race card. Look at your own hatred and racisim. We don't buy that weak crap. Mrs.O is just another voice to promote the Nanny State. It's where the only response to failure on issues of state are met with "you can't" eat, think, say, buy, what you choose. And, of course, it never applys to the spokes hole pushing it.

It's not a race issue. It's an American President issue. When ever somebody says he is a bad Pres. the response is always the Republicans are racist. So I guess that means that the Democrats that hated Bush were all against whites. That makes about much sense as saying only racists hate Obama. Unfortunately I had to vote for Obama, because I was worried McCain would die in office and leave idiot Palin in charge. I guess that means I'm a woman hater and a racist? Fact is Obama lucked into a seat in the Senate and had no viable opponent. He's done nothing in office. PERIOD!

The man is black and he eats stuff that causes diabetes and plaus he smokes. I know he still smokes because he says he is trying to quit and his wife says he has quit. I bet he smokes a lot more due to the stress the Office of Presidency entailes. I don't agree with the guy but like Bush, I like him as a human being. I think his wife wears the pants and he'd rather just sit around in his shorts watching TV and eating Doritos. I just hpe he takes a picture of his "thang" and tweets it to a big butted chick in Baltimore.

------------------------------------------------

It's newsworthy because his wife Michelle is pushing a whole 'Eat Healthy' anti-obesity campaign. Therefore, the fact that he's eating horrible, fatty food is something worth noting.

Everyone knows which foods are unhealthy, and from the looks of the average American, they just don't care. Which is fine, that's what personal freedom is all about!!
However, when Politicians start doing things like insisting there be a limit on how much salt can be in a certain food, then there's a problem. (Think that sounds ridiculous? Search Mayor Mike Bloomberg of New York...)
