    Obamas fly in chef 860 miles... just to make pizza

    When you're the president of the United States, only the best pizza will do - even if that means flying a chef 860 miles.

    Chris Sommers, 33, jetted into Washington from St Louis, Missouri, on Thursday with a suitcase of dough, cheese and pans to to prepare food for the Obamas and their staff.

    He had apparently been handpicked after the President had tasted his pizzas on the campaign trail last autumn.

    So? And he also declined the White House renovation money, which certainly far surpasses the cost to do this?

    Come on people, this is absurd.

    I post this to point out how FOS most of the carbon footprint, turn your thermostat down, properly inflate your tires people are. While they preach to everyone else that they need to change their behavior, or pitch taxes to save the world from certain doom, they're flying in chefs from close to 1,000 miles away, to make pizza's. Cuz we all know there aren't any pizza makers in DC.

    Oh, and yes, this is trivial, but so isn't the diarea that most people spew. I personally don't care that he flew in a chef from 860 miles away, or that he keeps the Oval Office hot enough to grow oranges. Just don't go around telling everyone else they shouldn't, or that they have to pay to do so.

    You guys are missing the point. Conservationists are about reduction and improvement, not elimination. They are also about improvements to existing technology that allow us to do certain things while mitigating their impact. They are also for mass transit. There's just no way to argue that reduction and regulation don't reduce emissions and save energy. I'm sure this guy flew commercial.

    Stop turning things into all or nothing propositions. It is just totally dishonest.

    If flying someone in to make pizza for you while 1 million people lose their jobs every 4 months isn't arrogant and out-of-touch douchebaggery, I don't know what is.

    This will more than pay for itself just in extra taxes collected from the chef. His business is gonna grow like a Yankee Designated Hitter on HGH and so will his tax contributions. Obama will take all that extra tax revenue and use it to buy more Priuses for the Treasury and Justice Departments and retire many, many gas guzzlers and maybe provide a little free health care for poor children in dire need of saving.

    Net result:

    -1 well fed President
    -1 deserving restaurant owner rewarded
    -many more people of St Louis knowing where to get outstanding pizza
    -less G cars guzzling gas and raising global temperatures
    -a few lesser pizza places in St Louis will see a decline in business
    - 1 annoyed guy from Chelsea

    Oh brother. And Cheney's multi-million bunker - a far more expensive proposition - is all in the name of national security.

    I can see that the magnification effect has begun. You guys will dance in the street if you find a blue dress.

    The man's already instituted reductions in White House spending on an order of magnitude greater than this cost. You're not being honest, you're being convenient. And he's still correct about reducing energy usage.

    If anything it's a display of convenient interpretation.
