You all may have heard that yesterday The Republicans hosted a "lunch" for President Obama so that they could utilize the time-honored tradition of breaking bread and discussing issues.

Now...kings and queens throughout history had to face all manner of political intrigue. Many of them possessed dozens of enemies within the court who wanted nothing more than to see them dead, and had to deal with shadowy assassins being paid to pour vials of odd-looking black powder into the soup. It was therefore common practice to employ a royal food taster to consume some of the food and wine before the king sat down for his dinner. This way, it would just be a lowly peasant who died...

Oh, about the lunch Obama attended with the Republicans...“He honestly did look longingly at it, but apparently he has to have essentially a taster, and I pointed out to him that we were all tasters for him, that if the food had been poisoned all of us would have keeled over ..."

-Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins

I guess I'd be wary too, if I was him.

All those other people enjoying lunch, and he thinks his may be poisoned.

What a JA.

I'm glad to know that he knows he's hated so widely for his policies.
It would be more disturbing to think he was so loved for his destruction.

...So, actually I believe the Secret Service won't let him eat without a taster....they know like all the rest of us that if Obama goes down - we get Crazy Uncle Joe! \:D

This whole "the Secret Service won't let the President do xxx" is a bunch of garbage.

The president can do anything he wants - even Slick Willie would break out of SS protection details at times to go into town.

Easier to blame the SS than say "I'm a candy [censored]."

To be a taster for someone who disliked as much as him, should pay BIG BUCKS for such a high risk job.
White House tours closed, but we got money for a taster

Why not pay for a taster....we have 3 caligraphers on staff in the White House that make 300K each per year?
