The leader of the free world President Barack Obama has done something only great men do ... he tipped his server ON TOP of already added gratuity. He DOUBLE TIPPED!

Obama stopped for lunch in Rochester, NY Thursday at a little deli called Magnolia's. It was widely reported that the Prez ate a grilled cheese and some cream of tomato soup. Big stuff.

But what you didn't know ... Obama not only bought lunch for his secret service men (the ones who checked the place for WMD's before hand) ... he also double tipped his waiter, like a champ.

TMZ obtained a copy of the receipt ... his total bill for 9 people was $89.84. The restaurant added a 20% tip for the large party -- $16.64 -- but Obama felt more needed to be done. He gave an additional $30.

In total, B.O. left a 52% tip.

So, we gotta ask ...

What is wrong with you people? Don't you realize he's using OUR tax money--YOUR tax money--to pay for these bills and tips? He just can't spend enough of OUR money can he. What a dope! And so are any of you who think this is "generous" on his part....he's being generous with OUR hard-earned money. They'll have to raise taxes to cover his expenses. He thinks he's a king, when he's supposed to be a servant of the people! That's what all these elected officials are supposed to be. You are being used. Whatever happened to being responsible for spending our tax dollars? This money didn't come out of his own pocket. Wake up Americans!

Excuse him for being generous to someone who makes $2.13 an hour & lives off their tips. You fools always have something negative to say about him.

considering how little he gives to charity, the fact that this waiter's hours have probably been cut due to O'care, and the bottom line that it's our money being spent, not his....really? Oh how your Hollywood types love kissing liberal ass for tax breaks while screwing the rest of us for whom you pretend to give a ****.

We the people take care of 5 living POTUS and there SS people . So if we picked up some lunch so what thats not whats breaking the bank. Paying for healthcare for those fools that dont give a damn about the rest of us is one thing i dont want to pay for no more. My husband work 80 hrs a week and his job said they will take the fine before he get ins. So stop bi##hin and come up with a real fix. Cause just getting rid of Obama Care aint it

Truth    

Obama is always a big spender with other people's money. That tab didn't come out of his pocket.

Just like any good Democrat, he's great at spending other people's money. Using the same math he used to run up the national debt to $16.7 trillion dollars.

For those of you not paying attention, that's $52,901.95 for every man woman and child living in America.

He should've checked with me before leaving that tip since I pay his salary.

For you people that have no clue.... here's some stats on this CRUMMY President.....

President Obama doesn't seem to believe in the capitalistic system and has instituted major regulations which have stunted economic growth.
The social justice economic plan is failing and American's are suffering. Economy and wages are stagnant and the quality of life is down and continues to be so.
Here are some facts to back that up.

* 7 out of 8 jobs created are 'Part Time'

* 54% of American's make 'Less Than' $54,000 a year
* Avg duration of Unemployment: 20 weeks in 2009 / 37 weeks now

* More than 8 Million Americans stopped looking for work.

* Trade deficit with CHina was $268 Billion, $315 Billion in 2012

* Poverty rate stands at 16%. That is the 'Highest' since 1965 when started.

* Food Stamps, Under Obama, have increased by 11 Thousand 'PER DAY' under his watch

* Gas: 2009 = $1.85 per gal Now: $3.53 per gal.

* Avg. Worker Health Insurance costs have 'Increased' by 29% and going higher due this horrible ObamaCare.
(Also: UPS is dropping ALL employee spouses cause of ObamaCare.
ObamaCare will cost 1 airline $100 MILLION next year 'Alone' because of ObamaCare while 'Hundreds' of companies are knocking their emplpoyees to 'Under' 29 hours cause 'King Obama' now says, part time is NOT under 40hrs per week, it's under 30)
And on and on and on.... we could go

So while some of you run around not knowing 'Jack' and think this guy is 'Likable'.... he has no clue on what or how to fix this economy.

Any of you who say, "Oh, well look what Bush did that's why!" Well, you have NO CLUE.
This President has increased the debt of this country MORE than ALL Presidents COMBINED!

Get a clue people.... this guy and his socialistic beliefs are Killing this country.
And we've got 3.5 more years of it.

Chucky Schumer steered dopey there because the locals know that the place is nicknamed ***nolia's. Barry was just scoping out a date night spot for his BF Reggie Love.
