Well, while I'm not sure I would agree that its 24/7, he is always "on call" 24/7.

That said, he's not a freaking neurosurgeon and he isn't plastered. So I'll take my chances should nuclear war be declared at THAT VERY MOMENT.

One: he's socially enjoying a beer at a basketball game, rather than getting shitfaced at work. I'd call that a win right there.
Two: the economy cannot possibly recover from a recession overnight. It never has.
Three: at least alcohol is no longer illegal, so any adult can enjoy a beer every now and then. :P

First he got shit for smoking (which as far as I've seen no one has gotten a picture of him smoking) & now it's beer. This is all total bullshit & I think people are just grasping at straws to see what they might find to bitch about. *rolls eyes* what ever. let the bitch be crazy & pissed. If I could I would buy the prez more then one beer & a pack of smokes!

Actually, all public official jobs in America are 24/7.

24 hours a week, 7 months a year.

If you don't believe me, look at the voting records of state legislators.

I am glad there is no one arguing that he shouldn't have one damn beer. If no one should be having fun, why don't we re-enact prohibition, cancel all forms of sporting events, musical, and theatrical presentation? That'd be sure to stimulate the economy :P
Let's close bookstores, too.
Gah, that last part hurt to say.

Im surprised we haven't heard people saying that Obama is not being a good influence on the children of America. That was the argument I heard about Obama smoking. So there is a picture of him drinking. It's not like he's got his oldest daughter there with a fucking beer in her hand too. He's an adult with, in my opinion, a fucking hard ass job. The man needs a beer so let him have is beer. Fucking people.

People need to calm down. Who cares if the president is drinking a beer. He's enjoying a basketball game. He's older than 21. I would think he was allowed to enjoy himself. Maybe the people are afraid he's going to be alcoholic or something, I don't know. But they need to give him a break.

Don't you know?

The president isn't allowed to drink, smoke, have sex, or even smile.

There's a no fun policy for them now days..

He's breaking MAJOR rules.

Wow. Is it suddenly forbidden for the President to have a drink in public? Some people need to relax.

This is why I don't watch the news. They fill it with all this bullshit that really ISN'T news. Who the hell cares.
Let the man drink a beer for christ's sake.

Carrie Nation strikes again.


What, does this wench think that beer is beneath the dignity of the Presidency and he should have been drinking something of a higher prestige? Or would she rather see him drinking MD 20-20?

If Obama was 'falling down drunk' and had gotten a DUI, like many of the members of Congress, then I could certainly understand someone making a comment about it; however, just ONE beer, hardly seems like he's an alcoholic. Many Presidents in the past have drank alcohol, and done much worse than that, but because they do it in the 'privacy' of the White House that makes it okay? I think that at nearly every White House dinner they probably have some sort of wine to go with the dinner, so why is it so wrong for Obama to have a beer at a basketball game? Hopefully it was an American beer, too. LOL. I imagine if it was a Heineken then people would call him a Nazi or a Hitler-lover. LOL. No matter what people do, someone always has to complain about it.

Lol i love how conservatives swept George W's cocaine abuse and SEVERAL DUI's right under the rug, never to be seen nor heard of. Or, maybe everyone was just too appalled at the fact that he started a war to get a shitload of our boys killed for no reason to notice, IDK, either way, the minute Obama has a beer (which is perfectly legal, coke is not.) it's a controversy. *sigh* we liberals have a bounty on our heads it seems. Clinton gets a blowjob, suddenly he's a heathen. Lied under oath, now THAT i understand. George Dubya blows an 8 ball or two, eh, no biggie. Obama has a beer well in his rights, OH LAWDY!

At first I was like, ummm, it's just beer?

Then I really think about it for a minute. The president is doing his job 24/7. Drinkin' on the job isn't cool.
