Nanny Statist Barack Obama busy micromanaging Joe Biden’s menu; working hard for the American people.

Sheesh. Steve Diamond was right. He’s an authoritarian. And when Michelle Obama told us that “Barack Will Never Allow You to Go Back to Your Lives as usual”, she wasn’t kidding. You will do exactly what Barack wants you to do, and that includes eating what Obama wants you to eat.
The Times reports:
WASHINGTON — When President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. meet for their standing Friday lunch engagement, Mr. Obama always picks the cuisine — a subtle break from previous administrations in which the president and the vice president typically ordered off a menu, and a reminder, if any was needed, about who is in charge.
Subtle? Not so much.
“The dietary bar is set by the president,” said Ron Klain, Mr. Biden’s chief of staff, who recently fielded a prelunch query from the White House kitchen about whether Mr. Biden wanted sour cream with his tacos (he did). “Biden eats anything. He’s a pretty easy guy that way.”
Right. Like he has a choice in the matter.
