Obama in Argentina: "My Plate is Full"
Behold the glorious baby bife of Argentina
President Obama wasn't kidding when he told the press in Argentina that "his plate was full' in explaining why he wasn't paying more attention to the ISIS attack in Belgium.
I well recall my trip to Buenos Aires in 1985. I was stationed in Italy with DEA at that time and traveled on a case to the Argentine capital. It was then that I was introduced to the wonders of Argentine steaks, baby bife, bife de chorizo, bife de lomo etc. We're talking steaks that are so big they cover the plate, so thick, and yet you can cut them with a fork. We're talking steaks that make our porterhouses look like dog scraps. And, oh yeah-they are the best tasting in the world too. And you think Obama was going to cut short his trip and miss all that because of some silly little terror attack by the JV team?
To quote the president himself, "My plate is full." And how!
