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.

This man is full of class he gave the waitress 140 dollars of tip on a 200 bill. Way different from the days when Bush would stiff waiters all across D.C. and Bush isnt even Jewish so there is no excuse.

It's not Obama, it's the CEO's of healthcare companies. Do you have any idea how rich Dr. McGuire is--the CEO of United Health Care? You should see his house and check out his lifestyle. How do you think he makes so much money off of people who get sick? Denying benefits and then the state, county or individual picks up the tab for partially covered items like major surgeries or PET scans etc. Or social security does. Universal healthcare should cut out the "middleman"--aka the health insurance agencies--who also get paid for paying the paying the doctors, kind of like a talnt agent gets a percentage. And do you think we need every test, ever vaccine etc. known to man? Medical imaging companies and pharmaceutical companies are businesses after all, and some products are good, others mediocre and others can actually cause problems. But Americans think the more (tests, drugs, vaccines etc.) the better. Sometimes less is more.

so it was ok for bush to take over 450 days of vacation during his 2 terms but not ok for obama to enjoy a lovely birthday dinner... his is human and a margarita will not impair judgement or decision making.

Harvey, I think you meant "WE" tipped 20%, along with paying for his pill. This crook family isn't spending a dime of their own money on anything

More wasted tax dollars just to fly his worthless a$$, family, security and handlers across the country for him to celebrate a birthday with a half sister he doesn't even know. If Bush did this it'd be slapped all over the news for months. What a joke.

Funny that TMZ focuses on the smallest bill regarding this entire waste of a trip incured. Why no mention TMZ of the hundreds of thousands of dollars we spent to fly him, his family, staff and entourage out there? SUPPOSEDLY during the worst economic times of our life. Unreal.

How can he be partying while the rest of the country suffers? Doesn't he even care he's costing us at least a half a million jobs a month?

Pay attention    

If this jacka$$ is going to skip work every time he has a relative, full or half, celebrating a birthday, he's never going to do anything!!! Remember, he's half black, so that's at least 200 wasted days right there per year!!!

First off, they called it the "Western White House" for a reason, he was actually working there. Secondly, Oflaba is running around trying to scare everyone about how horrible the times currently are, yet he's seen all over the place going on fancy dates, vacations, dinners, etc. He's a lazy, do-nothing Socialist hypocrite that is sealing his fate for 2012.
