Beergate 2009

I was never a huge fan of Obama... but seriously? Bud Light? That's not beer.

I like how this slice followed an article and a bunch of discussion about the sinfulness of drinking btw...

This is sad. Maybe if there "happened" to be a beer or two at the meeting and it was "leaked," no big deal. But let's make sure we broadcast the fact that our president is hip enough to drink beer at a mediation. And of course, controversy ensues afterwards...

I suppose loveliane is right - he is JUST A MAN. But he knew when he took the office every choice he makes will be analyzed, so why bring trouble upon yourself? Especially just so you can look edgy.

I agree with loveliane. Can't hey cover the important things the Prez does like...killing a fly during an interview...
