We have to give President Obama credit: In the aftermath of this week’s debt-ceiling imbroglio, during which one witty congressman dubbed the debt deal “a sugar-coated Satan sandwich,” some leaders would have kept a low profile. But not Barack. Instead, he was spotted celebrating his 50th birthday with staffers at Spike Mendelsohn’s D.C. burger joint, Good Stuff, where he chowed on Cheddar burgers.
Maybe he felt safe because Good Stuff has kinder, gentler fare on its menu — no devilish delicacies here. Per ABC, Spike features a Prez Obama burger with non-intimidating toppings like applewood-smoked bacon, red-onion marmalade, blue cheese, and horseradish. Michelle Obama also has her own ‘wich: a healthy turkey burger with caramelized onions, Swiss cheese, ruby tomato, and lettuce, with South Lawn herb garden mayo.
Really, at $6.89, we think both presidential sandies are a steal (though we’d make sure to ask for our turkey burger well done). And given the state of the economy, they’re possibly all we’ll be able to afford to eat soon enough!
