As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Michelle’s Birthday Dinner: Steak

Updated at 9:28 pm ET

President Obama this evening took Michelle out to the restaurant BLT Steak to celebrate her 48th birthday, which is today. Also along were Valerie Jarrett “and other friends,” according to the pool report.

The BLT Porterhouse. Nowhere to be found on Michelle's school lunch menu.

BLT Steak, just blocks from the White House, touts itself as an “American Steakhouse” that “combines bistro ambiance with steakhouse fare.”

It’s actually a high end chain, with 11 locations around the world.

Entrees typically are in the $40 range, though you can order the 12 oz American Wagyu Ribeye and part with $92 if you are so inclined, according to the menu.

I would never go there because it would confuse my palate, since I’d arrive thinking bacon lettuce and tomato but would have to order steak, since there’s no BLT on the menu.

I love BLT’s.

Bait and switch if you ask me.

UPDATE: Looks like the restaurant didn’t get the message that Obama is a Man of the People and a Middle Class Warrior.

From the latest pool report:

Here’s a fun fact: BLT now features “Obama burgers” as part of their burger specials.  POTUS burger is $28 for 8 oz Kobe American burger, w cheddar bacon, burnt tomato ketchup and spicy Scallion mustard.

  1. I’m shocked the queen didn’t have her favorite, lobster. As for the $92, American Wagyu Ribeye, I think they only have that at the White House when the taxpayers are footing the bill.

    • I just checked the menu and I doubt she had steak with this available: Grilled 2lb Maine Lobster / Cognac Jus ($55). They also have an appetizer of Lobster Salad “Cobb” Style ($23).

        • Any nice restaurant will make whatever someone wants if they have the ingredients. So if BigButt wanted steak and lobster, I am sure they could kow-tow to that.
          Just a note, got a super nice steak house here in Illinois with an 8 oz Kobe Burger on the lunch menu for 14.95. Of course, being in Central IL, you can’t charge those over-priced meals to the taxpayers.

  2. How often may one observe a pig eating beef?
    The entire Obama administration has been a revenge on white people for the imagined grievances visited on the black people. Recognize compensation, then ask yourself where would the few members of the slaves-captor tribes sold to the Dutch be if they had not survived the journey to America?
    The history is so obscure; but rest assured, the African blacks who survived prospered far beyond those who remained in Africa.
    If you contest that, examine the economic development and product of the major economies. Africa is locked in non-productivity because of its tribes.

    • And isn’t it interesting how many billions of dollars in aid we greedy, racist Americans have sent to the tribal-waring Africans as well as sending people from government, private industries, and non-profits to teach them hygiene, dig wells, provide medical services and surgeries, teach them how to grow food and on and on and yet there is little to no progress in them coming into the 21st century?

    • And we are developing our own tribes thanks to the racialists such as Michelle Obama who preach the “our people” and “our community” are those who share racial genes.

      It’s not only AfAm, let’s not forget about the La Razists.

  3. She’s going to rue the day she picked nutrition and NoKidsFatBehind(tm) as her “cause”. We’ll never let her enjoy a meal again ;)

      • Sending it to Laura Ingraham who I hope writes a sequel to her book “The Obama Diaries” which was a hoot. In it, she credits Raymond Arroyo for coining the term “Razzle-Dazzle” to describe the Chicago/Hollywood, sickening reality show we have been subjected to since the minute Obama announced his plans to scam the American people.

    • “NoKidsFatBehind(tm)” – too funny. As long as she keeps trying to tell us what to eat, she will never be able to gnaw on another steak in peace.

      • She’s toned and perfect these rules don’t apply to HRH just the fat and
        ugly dumb peasants who have to pay for her high dollar meals. She’s
        perfect don’t you know:-(

  4. When ordinary people take “Mom” out for birthday dinner, it’s not just to celebrate the day, but to make sure that “Mom” doesn’t have to cook the dinner for herself. Which begs the question; if MrsO has a fully staffed, professional kitchen staff to prepare anything she desires, then why do the Obamas choose to eat out at retail restaurants?

    It must be important for the Obamas to get into the motorcade, to stop traffic, to interrupt the unsuspecting diners to enjoy a steak dinner. The need to throw their weight around or prove their importance must be a deciding factor in the never-ending public, but, private excursions.

    • Well said. Add this to what you wrote. Both Obamas always lament about life in the “bubble”. What better way to put yourself in the “bubble” than to be gawked at in these public/private moments. When they go to these restaurants they are sealed off in a sort of bubble. No one is allowed to take photos or text what is going on in the Obama bubble they themselves create.

      • They feed pun intended on the attention and I think the bad remarks.
        We can’t do anything till Nov and they know the press will cover for them no matter what they do again it’s time for MO to get her daily
        fix of sticking it to us she loves the power.

  5. Guys and gals, you missed the sacrificing message here —

    it’s a chain restaurant.

    Michelle Antoinette ate her B-Day dinner at a chain restaurant to prove that she’s just like us. I bet she got the party decorations and party favors from Target.

    • It may be a chain restaurant but it’s too high class for my family. Remember how she strong-armed the Darden restaurant chain to change their menus? No more unlimited bread sticks at the Olive Garden for us peasants because of her meddling.

      • That really made my blood boil I worked in the restaurant business and
        and I think if she’d tried that they would have told her take a hike. It’s
        still a free country and she has no right to tell me or anyone else what
        to eat. Those restaurants should be ashamed funny why not eat at the
        Darden places she made the menu change you can bet BLT wouldn’t
        fall for her menu changes. Do as I say but I can eat anything. Bloody

      • Olive Garden – it was reported in November or December – has seen it’s sales DROP. And, this wasn’t an industry wide deal – just OG. Which cooperated with Michelle’s food nazi tactics.

        • The only reason to go there is the bread sticks. If they’re not unlimited, why bother? The rest of the food stinks. Same with the Red Lobster bisquits.

        • My family hasn’t stepped one foot in our local Olive Garden since that happened. At least we still have a say in whether we support these companies when they bow to the pleasures of the food tyrant.

          • Susan,

            I’ve not heard of Olive Garden dropping the unlimited bread sticks and the only reference I find when I google it is about Darden saying they will cut sodium and fat by 20% over the next decade. Are you sure this just isn’t your local store playing games?

          • It is possible. My understanding is it came under the guise of cutting portion sizes. Regardless, they lost my patronage by knuckling under to the food nazi.

        • The first-messiah and his family doesn’t have to come right out and say they are going to decide for us what we can have and how much of it we are allowed to have. They use their “celebrity” status to push their agenda. And then use the confiscated taxpayer’s monies to redistribute to their favored individuals, groups, organizations and companies run by incompetents such as themselves.


    “BLT Steak in Washington, DC recently launched a rotating menu of political-themed sandwiches, but not mentioned in the original press release were two hamburgers: The 99% ($9.99) and The 1% ($58). The 99% hamburger is a 6oz patty melt served on Wonder Bread, and the 1% hamburger is 8oz of “Kobe” beef served with foie gras, gold leaf, and Grey Poupon.”

  7. please provide the receipts for the vacation and the receipt from the Birthday lunch. Even though this is private and know of my business, was this on the tax payors. How many presidents played golf?

    I was just as broke under George Bush, Bill Clinton, George Bush Senior, and all the rest so what is your point.
    Comment on all the white people are working and not the blacks people. This is always the case last hired first fired that is the lot of black people .
