Doctor’s group tell President Obama to quit eating hamburgers and hot dogs

                 Is nothing sacred anymore?

Pushy. Pushy. A group of hot dog and hamburger haters posing as doctors are telling the prez he can’t eat ‘em in public?

Say what? They want him, his family (that probably includes Bo) and his Cabinet members to stop eating such unhealthy foods as burgers and hot dogs in public because it sets a bad example.

Processed meats "kill more Americans every year than tobacco does," said Susan Levin of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. "The White House would never set up a photo op showing the president buying cigarettes, so why is it OK to show him eating a hot dog?"

What next? Don’t let Obama be seen watching or playing baseball, or eating an apple pie? C’mon folks…give me a break here. How many generations of Americans have survived eating hot dogs and hamburgers? As long as you don’t eat too much of either, things should be fine. Pass the mustard please…
