technocrat: its because he was at a basketball game instead of a baseball hockey game right

Obama needs to be more white.

Can you drink beer through a straw? Pity to waste all those grasped straws.

mjohnson71: So this deep recession started exactly at noon on January 20th, 2009?

According to the Republicans, yes. (Nevermind that McCain talked about it during the campaign; he's irrelevant.)

A friend of mine has conservative coworkers who were honestly completely unaware that there was anything wrong with the economy until December, and who believe that it's all because we elected a black Democrat or some such nonesense.

Did anyone stop to think that maybe he presidents better when he's a little drunk? I mean lots of us drive better after tossing back a few.

Talk radio callers outraged, OUTRAGED I say, over anything and everything.

farm4.static.flickr.com

Many talk radio programs are not in fact meant to inform the listener, but to encourage and inflame outrage. Many callers to talk radio programs feel vindicated in their outrage if they can get other callers to agree with whatever petty outrage they harbor, no matter how nonsensical it may be.

Quite often this is the only outlet the caller has to feel superior to anyone else in the world. A successful radio host will encourage this and if possible fan the flames higher.

The recession has been going for a few years, we're all aware of this. Thank the Democrats with their control of the legislative branch for the past 2 years, and scum bags like Barney Franks for putting their personal wealth above that of the health of the economy. Obama was in the senate, he went along with the Democrat agenda that resulted in this mess. He's guilty as much as Franks or Pelosi.

TheChemist: I remember an article here on Fark that described all of the things the USSS does to protect the president, and that includes policing drinking vessels (and destroying them after the prez is done.)

screw you and your logic.

/Maybe.

If Obama brings the Sonics back I'm voting for the most right-wing douche I can find! Or IC Weiner, however comes first!



What if he brought back the Grizzlies to Vancouver, eh?

"People are losing 5, 10, 20 thousand dollars a day in the stock market, and he's sitting there drinking a beer! It's insulting... there's a lot of people suffering."

hitlersbrain
A president should never rest while rich people are losing a few bucks. It's not some mundane thing like hundreds of poor people drowning.

It's not just the "rich" people who are losing a few bucks. Nice job playing the wealth envy card.

poor people drowning???? What exactly are you blabbing about?

The Southern Dandy: An hoenst non-alcoholic can drink a beer at a b-ball game...



...whereas the dishonest alcoholic has to sneak a drink from the German Chancellor at a diplomatic conferences.


Can it be pointed out that Bush is drinking a Buckler, which is decidedly NA beer?

/no political statement here, just a fact from the pic

Nuup: Thank you for once again affirming how out of touch with how most Americans live their lives, Fark. I'm a small business owner, I interact with people daily. All I can say is this week, I've heard from more than one that they can no longer buy ammunition here in Arizona because all manufacturers are sold out.

While you guys sit around with your fingers in your ears, real Americans are preparing for a revolution, or at the least, breaking away from what this incompetent fool is turning this nation into.


don't let these internet liberals fool you, nuup, there just posting this stuff to get a rise out of you. you know they'll be the first ones that will come crying to us whenever the shiat hits the fan...well, the shiat's already hit the fan but the fan is on medium and not on high yet, so it doesn't quite have the same spread as high...anyway, they'll be coming to us for protection. i have some guns and some yam perserves, but no bullets or toast. maybe we can get together and trade, maybe listen to your ham radio for the codes.

""But you tried really hard to reach these people,'' [60 Minutes'] Kroft pressed. "You went and sipped beer, which I know you don't particularly like - I mean you even...

"Steve, I had a beer last night,'' Obama interjected. "I mean, where do these stories come from, man?"

"I'm the one... [that] doesn't drink," Biden added.

"Where does the story come from that...I don't like beer? '' Obama asked. "C'mon, man,"

I like beer.

Think of how much better-off this country would be if a certain trust-fund kid had stuck with that and not gotten all Jesusy & ambitiousological-like.

The caller needs to STFU. Rush Limbaugh himself has been at parties with President Bush and sipped some adult beverages with cigars and such. Did the caller complain when it was Bush with Rush?


/I say this as one who listens to Rush as much as I can.

Walker: He was there having a good time, something we should all be trying to do to get our minds off these depressing times. He sat out with the general public and interacted with people around him, even posing for pictures with people near him and the ushers. You can bet if George Bush ever went to a Wizards game he would be up in an executive suite, probably behind bulletproof glass.

Look at that last picture. It would suck to be the guy next to Obama, knowing a camera was on you the WHOLE GAME. Just pray the inside of your nose doesn't start to itch...

KJM315: i wanna know how he got his beer in a glass.

Umm, he's the President.

Would you say "I'm sorry, Sir, glass is not allowed"?

No, we'd all say "Beer in a glass. Yes, Sir, right away, Sir."

GnomePaladin: As soon as Obama takes (even close to) as much as or more vacation than GWB we can talk.

That's just it. The President never gets a day off. Ever. The only time they get a break is if they go to the hospital and the VP has to step up. So the whole argument is stupid.

Why??? He'd just ignore even more of his heritage. Our "first black President" is just another white president, even if he doesnt want to admit it.

I don't care if the president has a drink so long as he is not a drunk.

I'd swear that Nuup is my vacationing boss, except I'm pretty sure my boss is none too familyur with them thar' intarwebs. Seriously: this guy has his homepage set to FreeRepublic.com (on his work computer, no less). I wish I were kidding.

That man has the most stressful job in the country, possibly in the world. He can't take an hour or two off to watch a goddamn game and relax with a frothy beer?

Jesus Christ people.

"I don't think he should drink on the job"

One beer. I'm a lightweight. I clock in at 130 at 5'5". I wish I was taller and bigger, but my metabolism screws me. I could eat metric shiat tons of fried food and still lose weight. Beats being fat I guess. But anyways, even then I can down a beer or two without being impaired. I think that a man like Obama, who's an active basketballer, and taller and heavier than me, can relax with one without consequence.

Dwight_Yeast: I see: this is another "It's only okay when we do it" things brought to us by the Republican Party.

American politics can be summed up pretty simply:
Republicans and Democrats are both 8-year-olds playing in a sandbox. One of them has a toy dumptruck he's playing with.

Unfortunately, like most 8-year-olds, they're both spoiled little brats. While one child has the truck the other child is crying. Not because he really cares about the truck, but because it pisses him off that the other kid has something that he doesn't. So he'll biatch and moan and cry and piss and tantrum till the truck gets passed over to him. And he'll be happy for a while... smug satisfaction that it's how his truck. Meanwhile, the other kid is going to start bawling about it till he gets his toy back.

Nuup: You people thinking this is some cute funny joke need a reality check. There are millions of Americans unable to feed their family as a result of the Democrat's actions. People who were planning on being able to sit back, relax, and enjoy a beer with their retirements now face the prospect of working the rest of their lives to pay off this massive socialist redistribution of wealth.

The President and his cronies, being responsible for this mess, have no business being out and about celebrating and pretending everything is well. But by all means, keep on doing it. As other posters have said, people are going to get tired of their lives being in the gutter while hearing how glorious the Obama's lives are. It's one step closer to impeaching this incompetent fool or full out revolution.


Hmm, and I am sure that Bush made sure that when he spent trillions of dollars on an unjustified war that the financial burden would not be on the backs of future generations of Americans. Oh, wait, we are still paying for it, AND we got nothing out of it. At least there is some hope that the stimulus package could get credit rolling again, fund public works projects and keep higher education in business for the time being. I know that somebody who thinks that the Obama administration is moving us towards socialism or these policies are any more "socialist" than anything that is in place now does not realize the importance of public higher education and functioning infrastructure--but trust me, we need them to move forward.

And please, point out all of the benefits that we have received from eight years, thousands of wasted lives and trillions of dollars down the drain from Republican warmongering and behind-the-back-handjob tax cuts for the super-rich. Just more debt, less respect for America, many lives lost and an economy that is in the shiiter.

Please take a quick look at the structure of our government and our society in the US and while pulling your head out of your ass, realize that we DO NOT live in a purely capitalist society and we never will. I know you need someone to blame your anger on, but not much has changed as far as the function of or government goes. We are not any closer to socialism than we ever have been. Obama is not going to take away your guns (I am a gun owner and I am not afraid at all.) The economy will get better. You paranoid repubs need to relax and have a beer for farks sake. The world is not coming to an end and if it was, I am sure that Bush would have handled that already.

Can you imagine being married to either of the No Fun Police shrews from TFA? If they were male, I'd say they were braying from the safety of Mom's basement, but you just know that they flashed their poonanner once or twice to some spineless jellyfish, and wound up reeling the poor bastard in for a lifetime of suffering.

/now get back to the kitchen, pour me my beer, and make me my pot pie, you ballbusting tramps!

I don't agree with Mr. Obama or his policies, but if I was president, I'd probably need to drink. Heavily. So piss off and let him get pissed.
