    Savoring the sweet smell and taste of home made biscuits

    I like to eat with my hands (when it's appropriate). There's just something so primal about getting my mitts on a grilled drumstick, ribs, a hamburger or hot dog, corn-on-the-cob and French fries.

This philosophy isn't anything new. It arrived six years ago at the White House via the Muslim sympathizer...
