My President is a Cheapskate

So the State Department gave a list of gifts President Obama and Michelle received from world leader... the best gifts they have received came from Dictators, the Saudi King wins the gold as he gave the gift of gold as well as a number of books and DVDs to the Daughters of the President. But the Palestinian president who has so little needed to get coverage and he got it.

Per Gawker

But what about the other end of the spectrum: Who was the cheapest gift-giver? That would be His Excellence Dr. Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian Authority, whose gift, a "bottle of olive oil," is valued at $75. Olive oil! Any schmuck can buy that stuff at the supermarket.

Do you see now how he made the news? He got his name listed and he gave away the massage that the Palestinians are dirt poor so the next thing that will happen the White House may cough up some money to Palestine. I think the First Lady may appreciate the gift more than the President becasue she is all about eating healthy and olive oil is good for you. I hope they gave President Obama some Za'atar for dips.
