Obama's hoagie run

Washington (CNN) - On Wednesday, the President Barack Obama went to Taylor Gourmet, a sandwich shop in Washington, D.C., to hold a roundtable discussion with several small business leaders.

After the meeting he went to the counter and picked up some hoagies. According to the White House press pool he ordered a 12-inch Spruce Street hoagie, which has roast turkey, prosciutto, roasted red peppers and sharp provolone. He also ordered sandwiches to take back to the White House for his meeting with congressional leaders.

After the meeting with congressional leaders, both House Speaker John Boehner and White House Spokesman Jay Carney reported the sandwiches were delicious.

    Give it up CNN. You keep trying to sell this guy and it's just not working. Try reporting something other than these Obama fluff stories and maybe, just maybe, you might see higher ratings.

    A president who CARES for the people.

    Under a Romney president (I get sick writing that) he would be eating and everyone else would be waiting for the scraps.

    Nobody sticks it to alexithymic Mitt as well as ultra-cool President Obama does! Try not to choke with envy on those free sandwiches you were illegally handing out in Wisconsin, alexithymic Mitt!

    At least Pesident Obama supports the local businesses by sampling the cuisine, unlike Romney who insults local cuisines by stating, " I'm not sure about these cookies; they came from the local 7- eleven or whatever."
