Whoever came up with the bright idea of having Obama and Biden do their weekly lunch at "Ray's Hell Burger" should be dismissed. Like the disastrous foray into the bowling alley during the Pennsylvania primary, Obama comes across as stiff and wooden in these settings. Grabbing a bite to eat at a joint located in a strip mall that features food high in caloric intake and low in nutrition is difficult to reconcile with a president known for being extremely particular about what he eats. Which is why Obama's question - "Have you got a spicy mustard or something like that? A Dijon mustard?" - was ridiculous.
