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.

I wonder how many diners were denied entry because the secret service had to create a security perimeter around the area. He only thinks of himself. He is a sociopath and a monster.

Oh, and Heidi, you are an idiot. If you drive after 1 beer, there most likely won't be any problem unless you are an impossible lightweight.

You're comparing apples and oranges - driving a heavy vehicle when you can hurt, maim, or kill somebody is much different than going to work.

Stop projecting your miserable life unto others, please.

You people need to get off your ass and look for a job and an education so you can stop being mad at people who are spending the money they WORK for on a birthday dinner. And the President isn't supposed to drink because he's running the country? Whoever said that is a complete moron. I guess he shouldn't sleep or take a shower either because he's expected to be available 24/7 right? Stop wasting your time typing stuff about someone who earns their money and can spend it any way he wants. Find a way to make some money and maybe you can afford to buy some fancy crackers with your Top Ramen noodles tonight.

Drinking hurts peoples capacity to understand and respond to information.

The President of the US is the leader of the only super power in the world. He is running 2 wars in 2 different countries and as commander in chief he must be mentally clear at all times.

He doesn't allow his soldiers on the war front to drink, why? Because they have to be ready and at their best at all times.

While taking a shower or when sleeping, he be interrupted and have the mental awareness to think his best. Drinking is completely different.

The recession was not created by the President it began at least 2 years ago during the Bush administration. If you can't realize that Obama has nothing to do with the problems that are happening right now you are a complete moron and truly don't even have the slightest capability of understanding what a president does and the obstacles Obama was willing to take on when he was sworn into office. Businesses open and close every day and I'm sure you weren't complaining about it before you just feel that's something you can blame Obama for. And in case you haven't noticed money doesn't appear out of thin air if there is a new program in your city, state, or country or improvements to the streets or whatever..guess what that's taxpayer money and once again I'm sure you weren't making a big deal about that. Americans have been paying taxes exactly for situation like this and to maintain and improve our country that's what that money is for so stop complaining about you're going to pay for the Cash for Clunkers program.

So the President is supposed to be a robot now? You can make wrong decisions sober, drunk, while you're emotional, while you're sleepy...it doesn't matter he's a human and this is why the government isn't made up of only one person it's thousands of people who work as a team to run the country. This is why we have a supporting cast..a Vice President..advisors. The President doesn't make decisions on his own he consults with people who provide different opinions and help him direct the message to the American people.
