Middle Class Warrior Obama’s $900 Valentine’s Day Dinner

President Obama took First Lady Michelle out for dinner Thursday night to the restaurant Minibar, possibly the most exclusive joint in Washington.

It’s almost impossible to get a reservation – the place seats 12. The dining room includes an open kitchen where you gaze in awe as famed chef Jose Andres cooks you dinner as if you were in his home.

“Each bite is an experience to be savored, pondered, and sometimes puzzled over,” asserts the website for the restaurant.

Which is nice, since each bite probably costs about $10.

That is, the price for tasting approximately 20 small dishes is $225, not including tax and tip, while wine pairings will set you back $75, $120, or $200. If we assume a mid-range $120 for wine, the total comes to $345 per person, or $690 for two. Add in Washington’s 10 percent restaurant dining tax and a 20 percent tip and we’re at $910.80 for dinner.

Surprisingly, the Obamas did not go out for any $900 dinners during the presidential campaign.

  1. If they cared about the little people Michelle would have requested that they purchase deli for or some other healthy fare worth the cost of that meal and feed it to the homeless, the elderly and anyone else in need. What a couple of phonies.

    1. Google how much these two frauds gave to charity before “movin’ on up to the big time”. Cheapsakates and grifters.

      Eventually the dirt’s going to come out on these two…but I think it’s going to take an ugly event. The media look like they are going to keep propping them up till the bitter end. Disgusting.

  2. Will America wake up in time to see this traitor for what he is? I fear not. Impeach this commie and his commie wife. Let them eat bread and water, it might reduce the size of Moochelles rear end.

  3. Boy, what a long tail our cat’s got!…I guess the best way to kill pigs is to feed ’em to death, for free!…..drunken Sailors are not as creative spending. I wonder if he can play the fiddle?

  4. Just an FYI. Told by my Dr. Yesterday that obummercare won’t pay for Pap smears over 65 years of age. “Units”‘ yes that is what we are referred to by HSS, over 65 are a drain on society. It starts and we’ve seen nothing yet.

  5. Ironic…I was speaking of the disconnect of all politicians this morning over our breakfast. We are dismayed that n0-one seems to tell it like it is such as, ” While Obama flys around the world showing his daughters the world what will your family be doing this summer? He will not pay one dime for his trip, you will pay for yours and his.” ETC. The reason politicians do not point out this glaring disconnect is BECAUSE ALL POLITICIANS DO THE SAME THING! They steal your money at night and lie to you all day. The most digusting part of this to me is the media that allows this. But who can blame them, they also steal their paychecks every week towing the party line of the day.
    Think about this the next time you pump $3.62 gas in your car to get to work. When is the last time Obama paid for his gas? No, you pay for yours and his. People we are witnessing the Roman Senators of our day throwing loaves of bread to keep us at bay. We have ourselves to blame for elevating politicians to some level greater than us.

  6. I can’t help thinking of Bing’s line in White Christmas, with Danny Kaye, etc. He mentions how General Waverly, the character they’re seeking to help, would treat his soldiers: “We ate, and then he ate. We slept, and then he ate.” C. S. Lewis, in “The Horse and his Boy”, talks about how a king must laugh louder over a poor meal, and be more humble over a great one, than his subjects. Being so public in their extravagance, however, has been a hallmark of this administration. Million dollar vacations to Hawaii, to Spain, to Vail, and so on; extravagant meals after trips in AF1; the list goes on and on. It has nothing to do with cost; It has everything to do with setting an example. The democrats have delighted in reviling President Bush, whose vacations usually involved going home to his ranch and cutting brush. I don’t remember stories of such fabulous extravagance during his tenure. Interesting.

  7. Please report on background checks! It is my opinion that a Person who wishes to run for President should have a background check before becoming President. A President has the nuke button which is much more harmful than an AK-47 !no background checks for guns (which I do believe in) for anyone without one on Obama

    1. Look folks… A real life birther in our presense… We thought all you brithers wised up by now. Seems to be a few straglers left.. What a shame….

      If your own party in 2008 and again in 2012 could not come up with any evidence, why do you believe different, cause Rush told this morning?

  8. He’s the president. He’s not going for ribs at fucking Applebees you backwater fuckwads. Nobody important gives a fuck what he’s eating unless its underaged pussy. He pulled your country out of a nosedive, either shut the fuck up or contribute something you fucking passive aggressive handjobs.

      1. You must live under a rock or a POS…. The tail spin stopped in 2010. It’s been all up hill since then. maybe slow, but it’s still uphill. It took your village idiot and his cronnies 8 years to bring this country/world to it’s knees, I’ll give the current Pres 8 years to fix it, it’s only fair…

        Now go back to your bible and guns…

      1. CiscoKid February 15, 2013 at 11:22 am- ” A mind is a terrible thing to waste.”

        Then libs have nothing to worry about as they are mindless.

        NEVER expect a democrat to tell the truth.

    1. Well said Paul.. Don’t worry about those other losers that replied, they’re just that….LOSERS.. They have to be, they voted red….

      They’d bash the Pres if he laced his shoes wrong…

      The right, the party that killed the good ol’ USA…

  9. Good choice, Mr. President. That dinner will be the perfect way to start your costly separate vacations in Floriduh and Colorado. Wish I had two private jumbo jets.

  10. Most people are just trying to get enough money to go out for a burger, Obama spends $900 and then (Obama to spend long holiday weekend in Florida ) heads to Florida for a private golf lesson. How can people not see him for what he really is.

  11. Well he was reelected because no one holds him accountable for anything and he is able to continue doing anything that pleases him. The populous of this nation does no care at all because they are too lazy to find out and listening to the 3 main tv stations telling them all is well so it must be.

    1. No.. He was re-elected cause the right had no one better… Christ, Mitt’s own kid said he didn’t even want to be president. Is that the best you have…? And now your party is pumping up a cuban….good luck with that…

  12. I wonder how many $1000 dinners they had before he BECAME POTUS, and PAID for THEMSELVES? I just burns me up, big-time — How they can spend the taxpayers’ money so easily and luxuriously and then talk about wanting everyone to be able to” reach the middle class”! THEY sure don’t live like the rest of us and are nooooo good role model for the country. (SIGH! and more… !)

  13. This is the face of communism/socialism. Those at the top life in luxury while the rest die taxes/regulation and class warfare until all are too weak and enslaved to fight back.

  14. They have their own chef at the White House who can likely cook as good as anybody at this place. They also probably have better wine that at the restuarant.. If they really wanted to have a romantic Valentine dinner, they would be better off to have it at the White House. They could have much more privacy there. Even the SS would not have to be watching them in the White House. Just another expensive photo op for The Lord and Savior and the Madonna.

  15. I am not a fan of Obama’s policies but this article is beneath journalism. Yes $900 is a LOT of money for a meal. BUT he is the President and I do believe in capitalism – so glad he got a nice meal.

    Unless it was over $20,000 the meal was not noteworthy.

  16. Typical of them…the dictatorial elite spending money like there’s no end, without regard to the rest of the country…all they want to do is ban this and ban that until there is no more free America…and it looks like it’s happening…what Constitution ?

  17. He and she can go out for a $900.00 meal…… and then he goes for golf lessons, with his extremely ARMED entouragem that gors goes everywhere he does on the tax payer’s dime…. shelly and her wig fly off to aspen…. with her extremely ARMED entourage, that goes everywhere she goes… all on the tax payer’s dime…. BUT…. the 4 men in Benghazi were told they could have no extra security. and were murdered for 9 hours while he slept… because he clamied there wasn’t enough money in the budget for them!! Would you, as a tax payer, rather see to our military and ambassador…. or hussein and shelly’s million dollar vacations??? Aren’t we all feeling represented?

    1. Mooch Obama has no class. She eats like a pig with her elbows on the table and has been photographed sitting with her legs wide apart.
      She is trash.

  18. Just be happy that he didn’t have chef restaurant Minibar built in the private quarters and bring Jose Andres in to actually cook like he was in the residence.

    Baby Doc And Marie Antoinette will do that next year after the coup where they over throw the government and install a dictatorship.

  19. Oh My God! The President of the US of A, the most powerful leader in the world didn’t just settle for a big bite from 7-11. Oh No, he went all fancy and expensive. I took my wife out for V-day, but we did not spend a dime. We dumpster dove, like any good republican would do. I’m sure this post will be edited out.

  21. …but I wouldn’t trade my home-cooked meal with my little box of chocolates and a beautiful card…for ONE MINUTE in the lives of this so called “couple”.

  22. I cooked dinner at home. Thanks Barry and Mitch for making this Valentine’s Day so special.

  24. I don’t really care if he spent $900 on Valentine’s for he and his wife as long as he paid for it out of his own pocket. That being said, I think the biggest injustice to the American people is that Obama and his wife preach the “do as I say, not as I do” philosophy about spending, vacations to Hawaii, dinners out to expensive restaurants, which the remainder of America sits and spins in this vast wasteland of an economy. He is clueless about economics, great delivery of written word,(maybe he should go into broadcasting for MSNBC or CBS), but a woeful leader, and a terrible commander in chief.

    1. Still with that messiah thing.. When are you losers going to grow up? It’s time to take that Bush portrait down from your dining room… He’s done and he’s still in hiding……

  25. Who cares…. Don’t you all have better things to do instead of bust on s $900 dinner by the President. Christ, I spent over $300 last night and I make a fraction of what the Pres does… get a life people…

    1. Guess what Air Force Captain – even spending $300 dollars for dinner is more than the vast majority of the middle class can afford me included. Try living in the real world.

  26. Rich Republicans are “job creators.” Rich Democrats are… what? Uppity?

    I’ve had a $900 meal before and I’m not the most powerful man on earth. Who gives a cr*p?

  28. They will never have class no matter how much they try,they will never be refined,polished,or elegant enough no matter how hard they try ti fit in. They will be known for the most unpolished and uncultured first couple and join the ranks of others in our past that demoralized our county!

    1. wait wait.. I’m no Bush hater, but you’re saying the Obamas are less “classy” than the Bush’s? I don’t think the Bush’s would even say that. Stop it.

      Unless you’re going all racist on us

  29. Surprise, surprise, surprise ! After dinner we are off on a vacation get away. It has been a tough week of Campaigning. I wonder if the Butcher of Benghazi has had time to look for his laser. Nah, Let Them Eat Cake ! LMFAO
