Some people wait in line for five hours just to get their fix at Austins famous Franklin Barbecue. And who can blame them? The establishment is less than 10 years old but has been cited as the nations best.
Of course, President Obama is not some people. After a campaign-style speech in Austin on Thursday afternoon, the commander in chief made a stop by Franklin Barbecue and was quickly ushered to the front of the line.
Its common practice to let a president cut to the front of the line at a dining establishment. After all, the president arguably has the busiest schedule on the planet. Plus, having a president standing in one place only creates headaches for everyone else who is just trying to get some food.

I wish I owned the place, just so I could have the opportunity to refuse him service.

Good thing he didn’t head to the front of the line if I was waiting. I suspect everyone here would have something to say if they were in line too..........LOL!
Please note that the parenthesis is part of the title. I didn’t add it on there.
Who paid for the lunch? I’d say that it’s taxpayer dollars at work through the constitutionally indefensible stimulus package.
Did he have the pulled PORK?
Just wait until Hitler hears about this!
Looks like everyone is happy to see him...
This puke hasn’t paid for anything out of his own pocket for at least 6 years.

Democracy while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.

Whoopdie doo! He bought lunch for the two people who were behind him when he jumped the line. I wish it had been me behind him, I would have told him I don’t let scumbags buy me lunch.
