    Seeing Old Faithful erupt made the President hungry for something but since he and the First Lady were in public, he settled for an ice cream instead.

    I don't have too much on my plate...I have 5 minutes for ice cream, 15 minutes to see Old Faithful, and then defend health care, end 2 wars, deal with North Korea's ambition for nuclear weapons, improve our educational system and find the money to send NASA back to the moon. I'll be done by the time Leno comes on.

    After a long day of sight seeing, president Obama takes the time to buy ice cream with the people's tax money.

    You know, the best thing about ice cream in a cone is that you don't have to worry about 'Leave No Trace.'

    Yum Yum, after this ice cream, I will go and hide and have a MARLBORO at last. You, Shasha, watch the Old Faithful. Pretty isn't it?. My teeth hurt from the ice cream or the smoking.

    Sasha and Suhalia, you may think ice cream cones are for little girls, but on my Health Care Reform Package, children will not be allowed any ice cream until they have had their sugar tested and we are absolutely sure that they do not have any pre-existing conditions, such as childhood Diabetes!!!! So, in the meantime, you can just watch me taste test this for you both, and determine if it is worth the risk, OK?

    August 17, 2009 at 8:49 pm |

    I asked for chocolate and got vanilla. Is there a Republican making the cones?

    With tongue in cheek, President Obama finally tries the only known cure for his health care reform policies....Good Humor!

    Is this the flavor that will put Americans off the health plan?

    Kids, I get more ideas contemplating ice cream to the end of the cone, than I do in the shower. No, you can't have a bite.
