President Obama Graduates to the Hard Stuff

8/16/2009 3:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Barack and Micelle ObamaLike a college student who turns 21, President Barack Obama has moved on from beer to hard liquor.

President Obama and the First Fam visited Macayo's in Phoenix last night to celebrate the president's half sister's birthday. We talked to the restaurant who told us that in addition to having the triple fajitas, Michelle and Barack each had a Tres Margarita -- made with Sauza Tres Generaciones Plata Tequila, Presidente Brandy (fitting), and Patron Citronge.

His bill ran around $200 -- and he tipped each waitress 20% and an additional $100 each.

You'll remember, Obama downed a Bud Light when he met with VP Joe Biden, Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and the man who arrested him -- Police Sergeant James Crowley.

He's a grown man. Let him drink whatever the hell he wants.
Just because he's the president, he gets crap for everything he does.
And if you had his kind of money would you really be giving it to people in need? Face it, Americans are selfish bastards. The the man drink.

omg you guys (esp.u beckey) sound so bitter. get off your asses and go get better jobs if spending $200 on a family dinner sounds obsessive to you. it's not his fault that you have no money.

Obama is a Socialist!    

Has to drink away his defeat since his Marxist healthcare plan is getting dumped.

People are FINALLY waking up and seeing what a socialist he really is!

If you want to fix health care, you must break the HMO's up. They are a license to steal. Course the politicians won't because they are being paid off to allow the theft.

The President should not be drinking at all. We can't be trusted to drive after one beer, but he can run the whole country after drinking?

The President is on duty 24/7. He needs to grow up and stop thinking only of his own pleasure.

TMZ IS HATING ON THE PRESIDENT!!!!

I WANT TO KNOW HOW MUCH REVENUE ARE YOU MAKING OFF OF MJ STORIES????

‘Hater’ by Maya Angelou
A hater is someone who is jealous and envious and spends all their time trying to make you look small so they can look tall. They are very negative people to say the least. Nothing is ever good enough! When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters…That’s why you have to be careful with whom you share your blessings and your dreams, because some folk can’t handle seeing you blessed…

The definition of jealousy: A feeling of grudging admiration and desire to have something that is possessed by another.

Ha! Ha! this president and his wife sure like to eat mexican-style slop.

New Orleans cajun/creole bbq shrimp is way better.

1st of all 20% 0f $200 is $40 each. $100 each would be 50%.

2nd,the President's meals are paid for out of his salary, so why is anyone complaining?
