Obama, Medvedev chow down at Ray's Hell Burger


Charles Dharapak, AP


By Michael D. Shear
When in Rome ... Go to Ray's Hell Burger

President Obama treated Russian president Dmitry Medvedev to a traditional American lunch at the Arlington eatery Thursday before returning to the White House for a joint news conference.

Obama ate a traditional cheeseburger, while Medvedev added jalepenos, mushrooms and onions to his. The pair shared an order of fries, according to the White House. No word on which superpower paid for the meal. (Update, 1:47 p.m.: It was Obama's treat.)

Both sat, scrunched in at the tiny table in shirtsleeves, while the packed-in patrons gawked. There was much cheering when the pair came out.

It may not be the most glamorous location for a visiting head of state, but Obama clearly has a thing for the burger joint.

In May of last year, Obama and vice president Joe Biden stole away for a similar mid-day lunch, prompting a similar amount of restaurant chaos and forever making it even harder to get a table at the Virginia establishment.

Medvedev is in town for one-on-one meetings with Obama before the two head up to Canada for the meeting of the G20 nations.

The American media in the eyes of Jon Stewart, mine and the entire world are in a competition as to who wins a moronic contest (ratings)
While the president is doing his best to bring back respect to this nation, the media wants us to be noting but a laughing stock and they are winning.

Barry the incompetent boob Obama yucks it up with the Russian for the cameras, meanwhile as of today Barry the inept stumblebum has already sent 495 American soldiers to their deaths in Afghanistan (more than were lost in seven years, 2001 through 2007,) and two million gallons per day of black oil still pour into the Gulf of Mexico.

Miserable failure Obama

It was so nice for the writer to point out how difficult it was for the people at the burger joint to get a table. I guess if the President would stay in at the white house for lunch or go to places where most people can't afford, he would be labeled anti-social and an elitist.

Not one word on how he interacted with the public or the fact that the burger joint is getting free publicity.

The media is a disgrace.

@LETFREEDOMRING2
Just shut up, you are out of your depth when making up your lies or when following your leader Rush and Beck. In every post you show incredible ignorance of the world and what was and was not done. It is embarrassing to know that people in other countries read posts like yours and assume most Americans are so stupid and ill-informed.
Obama has the respect of more world leaders than any recent US president, and has done more to dispel the view that the US is a hostile aggressive capricious bully that can't be rational or trusted.
In the real world you need more proof of claims than "Rush said it" to support your opinions.

Obama hell burger with plenty of FED sauce - coming right up!


FED (private banks)
fractional reserve pyramid scheme
creates 10 billion (held in reserve)
lends 90 billion to member banks

i.e. you pay them back 90 billion that they created out of nowhere

it would be different if you paid it back to the treasury...then the US could collect intreast on its own currency and hold its own created wealth.

but you don't

people don't understand

they should be 9 times more wealthy than they are


instead you agree to be held in debt by the banksters! ...like ignorant sled dogs!

jfk was killed for exec order exec order 11100


end the FED and you'd have all the money you need to do everything the repugs and dems both want

Rather than everyone trying to out-insult each other here's the facts on Czechoslovakia:
....On 1 January 1993, Czechoslovakia underwent a "velvet divorce" into its two national components, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The Czech Republic joined NATO in 1999 and the European Union in 2004.
The Bush-era proposal called for the U.S. to set up a radar site in the Czech Republic and 10 missile interceptors in Poland to counter the threat of Iran launching long-range missiles at America's allies in Europe.
PrezBo scrapped that plan to be replaced by a network of smaller, more modern missiles based on ships, and later on land.
PrezBo was hoping to "reset" relations with Russia by this move...at the expense of our Czech and Polish allies.
So now he can eat lunch with the Russian who is playing him like a cheap fiddle. The Russians are world-class chess players.

Obama could take Medvedev to the Russian restaurant in D.C. and he certainly love to eat gourmet Russian food and drink his favorite beverage - Vodka!

> The Russians have already eaten Obama for lunch with their success in pushing our missiles out of Czechoslovakia.

Perhaps you are thinking of Poland, where Obama decided to substitute SM-3 and Patriot antimissile defense systems for Ground-Based Interceptors.

A radar, no missiles, was going into Czechoslovakia, but it would only have been needed for the GBIs and was probably redundant for US defense, as the Globus II radar is already in Norway.

The Obama rework and acceleration of missile defense moves it in the direction of addressing real or reasonably foreseeable threats.

The Russians have already eaten Obama for lunch with their success in pushing our missiles out of Czechoslovakia. The community organizer is over his head and out of his depth when dealing with the cold hard calculating Putin who pulls all the strings. They think of Obama as what he is a narcissist who can be controlled with sweet talk and compliments. A politician without executive or foreign policy history knowledge or experience. A guy who never suited up for the armed forces. This is what we got when we elected a lecturer in law not an executive leader.
