Tonight is the world premiere of the National Geographic TV series ‘On Board Air Force One,’ which will show then-President Elect Barack Obama touring the plane. Important subliminal message to cats everywhere? His food order. The show jumps from his plane entry to Obama ordering his first meal on what will become one of his presidential planes.
"I'll see how you guys do a cheezburger," he tells chief flight attendant Reggie Dickson, ordering it cooked medium-well, with cheddar cheese, dijon mustard, lettuce and tomato. He asks, "If you have, like, salad or some vegetables or something." When the Dickson asks, "No fries or anything like that?" Obama replies, "Oh, I'll still take the fries." "Yes, sir," says Dickson, then laughs.
Obama said "Oh, I'll still take the fries."
This is a very important message to cats everywhere. President Obama’s message here is that he is an every cat. One of us. He too, can has cheezburger, and wants us all to has one too. Obama's pledge is to keep faith with the American taxpayer by placing strict conditions on cheezburger makers’ pay and providing more cheezburgers to families. He wants more transparency so that taxpayers can see where their money is spent, and sensible regulations that will protect cheezburger consumers, investors, and businesses.
Memphis said he feels the Cheezburger Stimulus package makes him hopeful
Congress is working on an $825 billion Cheezburger Stimulus package, if enacted it would be the largest ever by the U.S. Legislature. Obama is scheduled to meet with Republicans this week to go over details of the plan. He met with a bipartisan, bicameral group of lawmakers at the White House this past Friday.
Several cats who watched the video of President Obama on board ordering the cheezburger were brought to tears of joy. "This is amazing..." said Memphis, an orange tabby male from Palm Desert, California. "...I think that for the first time in a very long time I do believe cheezburger reform could happen, it makes me hopeful. Perhaps I can has cheezburger." Other cats were in agreement and said that hot dog reform should be included in the bill as well as was pointed out by Senator John McCain on Fox News Sunday.

Arizona Senator John McCain told Fox News in an interview this morning that as far as he can tell, not one Republican hot dog proposal has been incorporated into the stimulus package.
McCain hopes to see a mandate for hot dog tax credits
"Maybe there has been. I just may have missed it, but clearly we need to have serious hot dog negotiations. We all recognize that the economy is in deep and serious trouble," McCain said, noting that as it stands now he would not support the package because it is “Cheezburger centered, pork filled, and doesn‘t include any hot dog funding. I want to see some hot dog tax credits. How can this be bipartisan if only pro-cheezburger views are supported.?”
