Video: Noted political Christ figure enjoys his waffle

posted at 10:34 pm on April 21, 2008 by Allahpundit

The dopey yet obligatory video follow-up to today’s dopey yet obligatory post. The Hot Air family splits over this one: MM slaps a new logo on the Messiah and mocks him for using his breakfast to duck yet another tough question. To which the big A responds by pointing out that his team’s already addressed this subject (as much as they’re planning to) and politely noting that if it’s evasiveness about Carter and Hamas that you want, start with BJ. Quote: “Look, I’m trying to help Hillary. I don’t want to say anything that’ll complicate her life.”

Exit question verdict: If the man can’t enjoy his waffle then the terrorists have already won.

This needs no response.

What in hell was that lying beside the waffle? If that was sausage…er…Obama needs to come down South and eat a real sausage link!

Ha. That would’ve been funny.

Yawn.

Not that I like to make light of terrorists or their activities…that made me chuckle.

But look…Obama wasn’t at a local diner there just ’cause he was hungry. It’s a photo-op/press junket/campaign stop.

If he want’s his waffle in private, I’m sure he has a real nice hotel with room service.

do his handler’s not know the symbolism of waffles?

Have you seen Jesus Face on the waffle?

It’s a miracle!!

Everyone gather around the dead horse. It still needs beatin’.

Dave Rywall on April 21, 2008 at 10:56 PM

Is this the kind of distraction that Obama was complaining about after the previous debate? Or was he referring to the kinds of distractions not smothered in butter and syrup.

Weight of Glory on April 21, 2008 at 10:58 PM

Imagine if he got one of those virgin mary pieces of toast. The rapture is upon us!

lorien1973 on April 21, 2008 at 11:00 PM

In reality though, this is like hollywood stars whining about being photographed as they traipse around in front of the paparazzi.

lorien1973 on April 21, 2008 at 11:01 PM

I can see it now…………

Its 2010 and President Obama is having breakfast……..

An aid enters the room: “Mr. President!…… MR. PRESIDENT!!!”

Obama: “Yes?….”

Aid: “Sir, the 50 million illegals in this country have just been ordered to pick up arms and start an intifada by Mexico, China and Russia have launched all of their ships into the Pacific and Atlantic, OPEC has cut off all oil sales to the United States, the stock market has crashed due to your tax increases, and word has come out that you are more White than Black……. SIR, WHAT SHOULD WE DO????”

Obama: “Not now……. I’m just want to finish my waffle…”

Seven Percent Solution on April 21, 2008 at 11:09 PM

Well that was very wude(Rude)of him!haha

He could of said,I’m eating my waffle,go harass Hillary

canopfor on April 21, 2008 at 11:11 PM

I eat your waffle! I eat it up!

Nosferightu on April 21, 2008 at 11:13 PM

Oh just great,Mr Obama there is a crisis,what should
we do!

Nothing!

We’ll wait until the “Waffles really hit the fan” then
will act!

canopfor on April 21, 2008 at 11:15 PM

the chicken and waffles

custer on April 21, 2008 at 11:16 PM

So Obama really likes his waffles, huh? Anyone else smell an Obama/Kerry ticket? Obama and waffles, better than pancakes and syrup.

n2sooners on April 21, 2008 at 11:21 PM

If Obama lolses he will make millions as a pitchman!
I can hear him now-LEGGO my EGGO!

Waffles?

Asher on April 21, 2008 at 11:25 PM

So I get that Obama had nothing to say on the topic, but what about his twelve disciples sitting along the counter?

Cicero43 on April 21, 2008 at 11:29 PM

The terrorists won long before Obama.

Good Lt on April 21, 2008 at 11:33 PM

I gotta get the photoshop workin’ on a “The Last Breakfast” take-off…

JetBoy on April 21, 2008 at 11:34 PM

I’ve been waiting for an Obama photo op where he would appear to eat something that is asumed to be a pork product. Was that thing next to his waffle supposed to be a sausage? It was hard to make that out.

Buddahpundit on April 21, 2008 at 11:59 PM

Where’s the chicken?

(Here in LA, we have a kind of landmark called “Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles.” Never been there, don’t know if they’re served together.)

irishspy on April 22, 2008 at 12:10 AM

No comment yet from Sen. Kerry, the original Mr. Waffles.

There are a couple of them and they are great, the best…

This is one of the funniest threads I have read here. The comments were hilarious. I cannot compete I can only applaud you all.

MST3K — whoo hoo! Will see your Joel Robinson and raise you a Weird Al (lyrics are fine but one rude image in the video, borderline NSFW).

inviolet on April 22, 2008 at 4:53 AM

I have to admit (and hate to admit) the actual video made the moment a lot…cuter…than I anticipated. I hate that.

Kensington on April 22, 2008 at 5:59 AM

There’s no other word. What a whiney p—y.

LtE126 on April 22, 2008 at 7:22 AM

Michelle, obviously, needs to work more on his table manners. I wonder how many times she’s had to pop him in the head for talking with food in his mouth.

sheesh on April 22, 2008 at 8:00 AM

Here’s an idea: if you don’t want questions, don’t go out in public. You can’t decide you want photo ops showing you’re a man of the people by eating waffles at a local diner (all the while not talking to the locals) and get pissy with the press at the same time.

amkun on April 22, 2008 at 8:06 AM

He’s trying so hard to lose the highbrow manner and adopt the aw-shucks-I’m-just-one-of-the-guys look…probably had to force himself to eat two-handed.

Jaibones on April 22, 2008 at 9:32 AM

He’s clinging to his waffle out of frustration with the media.

aero on April 22, 2008 at 9:39 AM

If he want’s his waffle in private, I’m sure he has a real nice hotel with room service.

JetBoy on April 21, 2008 at 10:44 PM

Good point. Obviously he just wanted to be a photo op, not a q&a session, but he did want publicity.

Esthier on April 22, 2008 at 10:07 AM

If he doesn’t want to be interrupted while eating his waffle, then perhaps he shouldn’t be grandstanding and stumping in a primary battleground state. He went to that diner to rub elbows – that question just rubbed him the wrong way. Want to eat your waffle in peace? Room service.

Beo on April 22, 2008 at 10:23 AM

The man is a pancake bigot!

profitsbeard on April 21, 2008 at 10:48 PM

Hey, at least it wasn’t French Toast . . . or worse, a crepe.

srhoades on April 22, 2008 at 10:41 AM

Notice the elitist Continental fork position. Bad American table manner, but OK in Russia.

eaglesdontflock on April 22, 2008 at 10:55 AM

You know, considering how good a waffle and sausage sounds right now, I can definitely say LET HIM FINISH HIS DAMN WAFFLE YOU MEDIA JACKALS!

MadisonConservative on April 22, 2008 at 11:51 AM

And the average Joe candidate didn’t ad lib “Can’t talk. Eating.” Doh!
