Let’s compare how our front line soldiers eat every day versus how our President eats while watching the Super Bowl:
First, our soldiers, enlisted men and women who are in harm’s way:
The Army has stopped serving cooked breakfasts to some of the U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan as part of its drawdown, a move that prompted troops to write home asking their families and friends to send care packages with cereal, breakfast bars and other foods.
The Army told the Washington Guardian the current cutbacks began Jan. 1, and affect about 2,700 soldiers deployed in forward operating bases in more remote areas of Afghanistan.
The Washington Guardian reported earlier this month that the current budget crisis in Congress prompted Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to write a memo order preparations for sweeping budget cuts across all military programs to begin as early as next month.
Now, let’s see what our President and a few of his friends enjoy for the 2013 Super Bowl leisure time snack. Glad to know our President is right in there sacrificing with our soldiers in uniform, who are serving in war–without breakfast–at the will of their Commander-in-Chief.

Family and friends join the First Fans for Crab Cakes and Cioppino Stew, and beers from the competing cities…
President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are “hosting a personal party for friends and family to watch the Super Bowl today,” a White House spokesman said late on Sunday afternoon, following the President’s pre-game show interview with CBS’s Scott Pelley.
Chesapeake Bay Crab Cakes and Cioppino Stew with Sour Dough Toast were on the menu, according to CBS News.
