    No frozen yogurt today. Everybody needs a little break from health care.

    President Obama suddenly rethinks his ice cream cone as he remembers his Health Care Reform won't cover diabetes treatment for the elderly.

    The president continues to lead the fight against discrimination. Quote, "I simply will not tolerate intolerance of any kind; not even lactose intolerance."

    It's just like healthcare reform...it looks good but leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

  7. Tarja, Finland

    The flavors they put in ice creams these days . This tastes just like a Republican. Yak!

    This could be a rocky road.

    Baracky Road? Hmm, even better than Cherry Garcia!

    The President pauses and thinks: dental isn't a part of health reform, spit it out.

    Obama realized that sugar-free was not the Change We Need.

    Sasha, honey...when I let you taste my ice cream just now, what did you do with your gum?

    August 17, 2009 at 7:03 pm |
  14. Alamo Lady, Alamo, CA

    Sasha, you shouldn't have told me to taste your ice cream. You know I never quit anything until I finish it.

    This ice cream cone reminds me of the sweet, sweet taste of democracy.

    Suddenly reversing his policy of transparancy, President Obama ingests the cone of silence!

  20. Shawn D Shaw Los Angeles

    Sasha....let me know when you see your mother, i'm almost done!

    Cameras were on hand to capture the moment that Sasha Obama was eliminated from 'America's Next Presidential Taste Tester'.

    Uhm, sweetie, hand daddy that brown paper bag, will you...

    Obama begins to realize that he's almost done, with the very last ice cream cone

  26. Pat

    We'll have to cut back on the high fat ice cream under the new health care plan, so enjoy this while you can.

    August 17, 2009 at 6:46 pm |
  27. Jean (Clarksburg, Maryland)

    The President (before the bite): Check this out: ice creme
    Sasha: you scream, Daddy?
    The president (after the bite): Got'cha!!!

    This tastes like Ben and Jerry's needs a bailout!

    You're right, Sasha, this Yellowstone ice cream cone really does have yellow stones in it...or is that someones' gold filling?

    It doesn't have any calories if you're on vacation 🙂

    Ironically, the President chooses rocky road as his favorite ice cream flavor.

    August 17, 2009 at 6:40 pm |
  32. Russ Haslam

    This reform ice cream flavor is missing the "essential element!"

    August 17, 2009 at 6:38 pm |

    So, in my new health plan, instead of getting the whole ice cream cone, you'll probably get about this much cone, and
    it's leaking...

  37. Donna Wood, Lil' Tennessee

    Sasha: Can you guess what we put in the center of your ice cream, Dad? Pres. Obama: Will it require a hospital visit to have my stomach pumped Saha? Because Daddy really hasn't gotten all the finer points of his Health Care Reform package ironed out yet, sweetie!

    This health care reform is leaving a bad taste in my mouth.

    August 17, 2009 at 6:32 pm |
  40. Diane - IL

    Let's see... this ice cream has high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated palm oil... Not good for you, so I better eat it for you.

    President Obama shows sign's of Brain Freeze, but braves the pain for his kids.

    Sasha demands full disclosure from the President as she investigates her missing ice cream.

    President Obama looks at his ROCKY ROAD (to health reform)!

    Umm...Daddy, don't eat that! I need it so the tooth fairy can bail me out of my current financial crisis!

    If I eat any more of this ice cream I think I will erupt

    Let's not Rush to conclusions. That's not a bug in your ice cream. That's just a nut.

    I wish I could take a bite out of those health care critics as easily as this yummy ice cream cone.
