You Cannot Make This Stuff Up

Russ Steele

On Tuesday, Barack Obama accused Republicans of stiffing him with the bill for a steak dinner.

“They (Republicans) order a steak dinner and martini and then, just as you’re sitting down, they leave, and accuse you of running up the tab.”

Then, on Wednesday, Obama treated two military members and two barbers to a Father’s Day lunch yesterday. Then he stiffed the restaurant.

ABC reported:

Amid the bustle of President Obama’s surprise stop for barbecue Wednesday the White House apparently overlooked one key detail: the bill.

Celebrating Father’s Day early, the president had lunch with two service members and two local barbers at Kenny’s BBQ on Capitol Hill.

As the group chatted about fatherhood, the president enjoyed a steaming plate of pork ribs with hot sauce, collard greens, red beans and rice and cornbread.

The bill for the president and his four guests was $55.58, but was left unpaid at the point of sale, according to pool reports.

  1. No surprise here. A liberal is a total hypocrite. Michelle’s taxpayer vacation to Spain was what? A million bucks? The fact O stiffed 55 bucks to a small business owner is why he needs to take a permanent vacation back to Chicago this November.

    Actually, you can make this stuff up, or at least only report a portion of it in order to gain some arcane political advantage. The portion of the ABC report you did not clip and post here goes on to say that the oversight was realized,a nd that the bill was paid later that same day. Now why would you do that Russ…..why would you only report only part of the story, that you clearly gleefully read, because you posted a portion of it?

    Clearly my punctuation and syntax is a little off before obligatory morning coffee. My apologies.

      SyeveF, not coffee maybe a little too much Jack? So, if the President stiffs a small business owner and later when told he was being a toad sends back a lackey to pay with my tax money you have no problem eh? The Great Divide between a taker and a maker exposed again.

    To paraphrase Winston Churchill: I may be drunk Sir, but in the afternoon I will be sober and you will still be stupid.

    The question I am asking is why did Russ fail to post the “rest of the story”?

    There is a big difference between part of the Presidential advance team making a simple mistake, and the Republicans ordering a steak, sucking up the cream, drinking the martini, wooing the women, and pocketing the tip, and leaving the gristle, the ghee, the water, and our pocketbooks in a lonely bed.

    Mr. Steele, what say you?
    Thanks to Mr. Frisch and Mr. Croul — as the late great Mr. Paul Harvey would say– I now know the rest of the story.
    This kind of “news” reporting is why so many consider Fox news a source of misinformation. Rather than actually report news to inform, this is intended to inflame and it’s quite irresponsible.
    So, again, Mr. Steele, what say you — about this inaccurate post, the other you posted on the graduation ceremony and who knows how many others (unless Mr. Frisch and Mr. Croul took the time to scout this blog for similar inaccuracies). As you see, it only hits your own credibility.

    • Russ says:


      Yes, they paid the bill after it was pointed out on the blogs that they had not paid. The staff just fixing a little oops. The original story I captured from a blog did not yet indicate that they paid the bill. We are all appreciate Mr Frisch bringing us the late breaking details. Now you know the rest of the story. By the way thanks for dropping by and post your comment. Welcome here any time to set the record straight.

    • stevefrisch says:

      Bill, needless to say we don’t have time to research and report on everything said here, only the most aggregious or titillating examples of misinformation. But fortunately we do have time to focus on the low hanging fruit. If you continue to post here you will see that it is rarely received with the grace that Russ so politicly afforded you. Thanks for your comment.

    Mr. Frisch, how gracious is calling people who don’t agree with you stupid?

    • Arthur, don’t you know Frisch is exempt from his own criticisms? We have outed so many made up stories of his he has no credibility. But we still him coming back for more. Mr. Green is a sock puppet anyway. I think Frisch has now said he was in Wyoming!

  7. stevefrisch says:

    Let’s go back to the original point. Is it really Russ’s contention that the full statement from ABC was not available when he cut and pasted this story? I went back and looked at the time stamps, and my friends, that is simply not true. What Russ appears to be saying is that he cut and pasted this from another blog, not the original ABC news source. But then he goes on to sy that the original information was not available at the time. My original point stands:Russ edited the ABC news story, or accepted someone else’s edit without checking the source, so he could leave a particular impression with his audience.

  8. Oh golly SteveF, we need to remove Russ’s journalistic credentials, just like you did with Dan Rather then.

  9. Oops, sorry, Dan Rather’s credentials were not removed.

  10. Arthur M. Day. says:

    Speaking of sock puppets. How many of you wonder if B.O. is just George Soros’ sock puppet? His past record doesn’t seem to be congruent with his present performance. And just who wrote that magnum opus Obamacare? It seems a fine example of taxation without representation.
