There are major problems when

There are major problems when the president 'needs' a food taster.

Of course, what I am more suprised about is the fact that there havent been any even partially successful attempts at taking Obama, or even George Bush before him(when he was president), out. For all the hatred yelled out, it doesnt seem like anyone is actually willing to take that kind of step.

Of course, when the president or those close to him need to have service members disarmed to speak in front of them, or in this case a food taster, things are bad.

On a side note, I once saw part of a special on presidential protection and any food that arrives at the white house unannounced will be thrown out.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

duplicates ?

does he have duplicates too ?

Needs a taster...

but I am supposed to believe he has a mandate!! Right!

I wonder if Obama's taster's palette...

...is sensitive to GMO's, pesticides, MSG. Aspartame, nitrates, food dyes, etc.,

You know, the poisons average Americans eat every day in their "food"?

Islam Forbids Eating Lobster

The media got pranked again with a phony story about Obama needing a Royal Taste Tester -

All these comments are proof of how easy it is to distract people with a false narrative.

Obama didn't eat the lobster because it is haraam - forbidden by Islam, the religion of Muslims.

Please wake up.

Does it forbid the blueberry pie and ice cream?

Because those were on the menu as well.

It sounds like a good

It sounds like a good opportunity for Obama to speak and everyone else to sit and chew and listen. That's why you take clients to dinner. They associate the good food with your words.

oboma does't have a taster.

For that he would have to have some taste, and he has no taste. Proof, you need proof? No taste = Michelle. See, you people will believe anything......... Oh, what, did I miss something?

Greetings DailyPaul Members. Your White House Kitchen Staff here

We sincerely wish to serve you; however, even the school student tours have been cancelled this year. Oh, we miss the children so much. It is so disappointing to have all the food in the world at our disposal... And only Mr & Mrs O & invited Senators to dine on our preparations. I do hope that Mr O can make new friends soon. It is so dreary... Even the testers are dreary. Especially since there are rules against children coming to visit us. You will excuse me. I think I am going to have a good cry. - White House Kitchen Staff, 2013
FRIDAY, JULY 02, 2010 What Are The White House Chefs' Salaries?

White House releases annual multimillion dollar salary report to Congress...

$38,796,307.00...including Social Office staff
The total price tag for the 469 employees who are listed in the report is $38,796,307.00. The salaries of the Social Office staff, who have everything to do with White House foodie activities, are listed in the report. Social Secretary Julianna Smoot is earning $150,000; her predecessor, Desiree Rogers, who departed in late March, made $113,000 per year. She lasted just slightly longer than a year...

We are sorry that though you must pay for our service, you cannot dine with us. Oh, I hope things change back to normal. It was wonderful having you folks over to dine with us. Those were the days my friend.

Is there not a slow acting poison which the taster could survive for a short while until Obama had also indulged in the goodies?

It would be funny, weird if...

the taster AND obombya both contracted the same kind of cancer that chavez contracted and both died 5 years from now of the incurable stuff.

Is that how they do it? Or, does it have to be injected or inhaled?

Do you think they will soon have a "breather" for obombya, too? Someone has to come into the room first and sniff it out?

What kind of paranoia do you have to have to live like this?

This is what they call living by the sword and dying by it!

So what happens to the taster if the food is poisoned?

Let's assume that the food was indeed poisoned and the taster tried it and immediately succumbed to food poisoning. Then what of the taster? Is he discarded like a lab rat? How could this so called "president" (but more like a dictator, king, or emperor) defend this action of using a person as a guinea pig to test for poison? (I suppose that's a rhetorical question.)

Aside from Otard's Taster

keeling over and croaking from poison, I wonder if his palate can detect ascerbic notes of saliva, the rank brackishness of urine, or the sapid piquance of mucous.

After all Mr. President, they were free range lobsters.

Maybe it was GMO butter he was worried about.

hmm but he's such a nice guy?

I wonder who could possibly want him dead?

This is...

funny and all but if the story gains any traction... They will just talk about Reagan having one too. They may even bring up Bush Sr. bringing ketchup to restaurants.

Didn't need the taster

They compromised him in the hospital, after the assassination attempt.

Obama must have a monster of a guilty conscience

if he won't even eat the Senators' food.

Insulting all the Senators

The President essentially told the Senators, "I think one of you is trying to kill me."

Not even subtle.

There are no accidents in politics; the taster probably was told not to be present, so that he could deliver this message.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
