Does Barack Obama Eat Bacon?

Does Barack Obama Eat Bacon?

By Rocco Loosbrock

Recently, I wrote an article about Hillary Clinton`s appearance on David Letterman`s show where she spoke of her love for bacon.  Well since then, I have received several requests inquiring about Barack Obama and whether or not he eats meat or if he is a vegetarian. 

Well, that got my curiosity going. I started searching the Internet and I searched and I searched and I searched.  I was nearly convinced that he was a vegetarian as I was finding out tons of information about other politicians eating prime steak, bacon, ham, the full line of delicious meat products. 

When I was nearly ready to give up is when I came across a video clip from CBS that showed New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg having breakfast with Barack Obama in Manhattan at a place called the New York Luncheonette on Friday, November 30, 2007. 

At last I found it, Barack ordered bacon and eggs!
