Clinton, Obama Spend Others Money Like It Is Not Theirs!!!

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her camp ate a little higher off the hog than her rival Barack Obama during their week of campaigning in Las Vegas.

Both campaign camps called N9NE Steakhouse at the Palms minutes apart Friday for a food delivery.

Chef Barry Dakake and Jenna Morton, wife of N9NE co-owner Michael Morton, delivered around $200 worth of food, including two Kobe burgers, two organic chicken sandwiches and one order of Dover sole, to Obama in a conference room at the Las Vegas Signature Terminal.

The Clintons' tab came to $1,530 and included entrees of nine steaks, three chicken, three salmon and three Maine scallops, two lobster pappardelle, salads, sashimi, rock shrimp, and various side dishes.

The Clintons, who spent the week in a Bellagio villa, also had a big order delivered from N9NE on Monday.

Do either of these people have ANY finicial responsibility? Obama pays $200 for 2 burgers, 2 chicken sandwiches, and a fish platter, while Hillary pays $1530 for her meal.

After doing some research, I found that N9NE advertises their average price of a meal is $25-$35. That would come out to serve Obama's group six to eight meals. He ordered five entrees. Not very excessive, but a bit above the average person's meal expenditure for a dinner for five people.

As far as Clinton, I count her ordering 20 meals, along with various side dishes.
With the meals averaging $25-$35 dollars, that comes to about $500-$700. But she spent $1530.

I guess it is different when you are spending other people's money. Money that people donated to help you campaign, not to eat "high on the hog."

That is one of the problems I have always had with Democrats. They are more than willing to spend excessive amounts of someone else's money, but never willingto part with their own, no matter how it was earned.

To quote George C. Scott as General George S. Patton in the movie "Patton": "Alright, now you sons-a-bitches. You know how I feel."
