Barack Obama

Honored with Fried

Chicken and Waffles

EXCLUSIVE

The Obama special at Roscoes Chicken and Waffles
Barack Obama has just become the first sitting President in American history to have a menu item named after him at Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles -- talk about a historic week!!

The legendary chicken joint officially renamed a menu item after Obama after the Commander-In-Chief chowed down on the famous 3-wing "Country Boy" special back in October.

At the time, the owners claimed they would NOT rename the item after Obama ... in fairness to Reagan and Nixon, who were also regulars ... but don't have any items named after them.

Guess the Roscoe's people had a change of heart ... 'cause the Country Boy is OUT and "Obama's Special" is in ... for $8.90.

Yes they did.

well the restaurant is racist to give obama a menu item named after him and not the white presidents that were regulars, they are basically saying obama is superior for being black. the definition of racist is thinking a race is superior to others, if you dislike,hate, or are scared of a race it is called a phobia, if someone does not like a race it does not mean they are racist. People need to use words correctly according to definition or else it confuses the courts and what have you and all these stupid lawsuits would not be clogging the legal system, F*A*G should only be used when referring to a bundle of sticks.

All you people calling it racist go to the website, Obama really ate there and that is what he ordered, that is why they named it after him. Idiots. By the way, he's a terrible president and I'll be glad to see him go in Feb.

This one finds the Obama Special to be more palatable than nourishing planktonoids.

$8.90 for 3 wings and a waffle. Sounds like they used obamanomics to figure that out.

Sounds about right. Everyone knows that n*gg*rs have an affinity for fried chicken.

All the wings were from the left side of the chicken, no doubt.

Eat it now, because if Obamacare is here to stay and he wins re-election it will be deemed illegal.

The Obama special is served with only the biggest LEFT wings. It's also subsidized by the restaurant charging extra for its regular menu items. You are also enrolled in a program to automatically get you in Medicare and other public assistance programs when you become fat and a type II diabetic.
