Obama Marks St. Patrick’s Day With Brew In A Pub

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is sipping a Guinness at an Irish bar to observe St. Patrick’s Day. At the White House, the main South Lawn Fountain is burbling green water.

Obama took his motorcade to the Dubliner Restaurant and Pub on a dazzling Saturday afternoon.

Wearing a moss green jacket pierced with a button that read, “VIP GUEST — Tell `em Danny sent you,” Obama waded into a crowd wearing all manner of Kelly green waiting under a tent outside the tavern near Washington’s landmark Union Station.

On Tuesday, Obama and Vice President Biden will meet the Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny and attend a St. Patrick’s Day lunch at the Capitol. Then the president and first lady Michelle Obama will host an evening reception at the White House.

    The President is Human being like many of us. Whats wrong with a beer. Its nice for him to be able to get out and socialize with his fellow constuents.

    Few men coulkd hyandle the everyday pressres of the Oval Office. We stress over out little problems he has a world of issues to contend with daily.

    STOP HATING. HE IS STILL YOUR PRESIDENT. IF YOU DON NOT LIKE IT, TAKE THE NEXT FLIGHT OUT TO IRAQ, IRAN or ANOTHER COUNTRY OF YOUR CHOICE.

  8. RavenLude says:

    he is still our commander in chief who has no leadership skills, no executive experience in anything, a burden on our economy, an embarrassment to foreign policy. regarding ur comment of me moving, i still have a 1st amendment right to speak my mind. i know liberals would like to take that away from those who dont agree w/ there backwards thinking, but they cant
