Well, the more he acts, the more he talks, the more public decisions he makes, the more I dislike Obama, and the more I'm starting to like VP Biden. Check out the link, then see which part below that got my attention...
Gates and Crowley, dressed in dark suits, had Sam Adams Light and Blue Moon, respectively, while Obama, in rolled-up shirt sleeves, had a Bud Light. Biden joined them for a non-alcoholic Buckler beer.
So, while our US Troops are in Iraq, Afganistan, and numerous other countries, protecting our freedoms, standing up for what is right, in the face of armed & dangerous terrorists every minute of their days.... While folks are lining up for unemployment, losing the utilities in their homes, sometimes losing even their homes.... While Large Company employers try to figure out how to surge past the lousy economy and keep their staffs (& keep them paid fairly)....
(Y)our President was slamming back an alcoholic beverage, to "ease the tension" over some stupid misunderstanding where one guy appeared to be breaking into a home, and a police officer confronted him. A misunderstanding between a man appearing to break the law and a law official, and nothing more. All charges have been dropped, both men apologized, the President said "Yup, I should've thought a bit more before I opened my mouth."
Isn't this country grand? NEVER ONCE in my short life do I EVER remember hearing ANOTHER incident where the President of the United States was drinking with anyone in this fashion... NEVER! It's APPALLING! What an example he sets for the country - When life gets hard, you shove your foot in your mouth, and do something you shouldn't have oughta done, just drink a beer! It makes it all go away... All things are better with alcohol, and a beer with your buddies makes it all good.
Thank you Joe Biden for participating, but thank you more for not drinking.. At least somebody in the Big House was sober & with full awareness that night.
(And no, I'm not a completely dry, never-drink-a-day-in-my-life kind of girl.... But I also think VERY hard before I swallow that first drop - Where else am I going today, What else will I be doing, and Will I have a negative impact on anyone watching me by doing what I'm about to do.)
