President Obama, at the University of New Hampshire campus today, treated staff and students to ice cream in the campus Dairy Barn. But don't worry about the president's health: "I only have these once in a while," Obama reportedly said at the ice cream shop. "It's not a regular practice to have a hot fudge sundae."

Via the pool report:

[S]omeone at a first table asked if they could have a picture, POTUS had Pete Souza take care of it assuring them he was pretty good.

One was celebrating a birthday. "Happy birthday! Can I buy you some ice cream?" POTUS asked

Another excited patron in a booth to left of entrance: "I didn't think I'd get to see you!" "I didn't think I'd get to see you either," he responded.

At one point Lee MacQuarrie asked the president to wish a happy birthday for a friend, a message from POTUS that she recorded on her iphone.

"Brianna (sp), happy birthday!" He said into the camera.

Most of other banter was largely about what people had ordered.

For anyone who hadn't, POTUS said hed pick up tab. "My treat now. ... This is legal. I could not do this in front of a polling place, buy you ice cream. But I can do it here."

Excuse me?? He’s OBSESSED with ice cream, what does he mean not a regular thing? There are probably as many ice-cream-shoving-in-his-mouth photos as there are golf outings (100).

Ø dished out 18% less ice cream to the women in the crowd - like his White House payroll.

From the Weekly Standard:

Laurie Meyer of Dublin, NH, asked POTUS how he keeps his wasteline so trim eating like this. A gentleman next to her said, "It's the stress."

Spelling aside, Ice Cream Sundaes for all? The students were allowed to have spoons? All of them or just the non Latinos?

Were they allowed to eat their sundaes with spoons or were they forced to eat them with their fingers because the Won’s afraid of eating utensils?

Obama said, "The US TAXPAYERS will pick up the tab for the ice cream."

Now UNH ice Cream is good, but I think Penn State and UConn still got the best college dairy bars.

LMAO, Eddie Murphy at his finest. The “MacDonald’s vs. his mom’s burger” part was funny, too. Need to watch that again!

But don't worry about the president's health: "I only have these once in a while," Obama reportedly said at the ice cream shop

And he had the gall to proclaim that rich Republicans were "busy suckin' on a Slurpee" when the artificial housing bubble burst.http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lq32sgv0ob1qhuxd0o1_r1_500.jpg
