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.

As much as Harvey loved to talk about Heath Leadger, and as much as he would love to smoke Obama's pole, I wonder why he hasn't showed a single picture of that badass Joker poster somebody made of the Chosen One?

I THINK OBAMA IS SO DREAMY. THE WAY HE READS HIS TELEPROMPTER AND LIKES TO GET ALL JIVE WITH IT SOMETIMES AND TALK LIKE HE'S A STREET HUSTLER FROM THE HOOD. OBAMA IS SO BRILLIANT. EVEN THOUGH HE'SCARED TO SHOW US HIS COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS, IT'S ALL GOOD. SOCIALISM ISN'T SO BAD. NOT SURE WHY ALL U HATERS ARE HATIN. HITLER WASN'T SUCH A BAD GUY. NEITHER IS MR. OBAMA. LIGHTEN UP.

He and his Czars tell the corporate CEO's what to spend yet he arrogantly adds $100 to his tip? Why does he live by "do as I say, not as I do?" Which Chicago crony bankrolls his spending?

Fan Since 2007!!!    

Who remembers during the campaign how he magically raised a record breaking near-billion dollars then promptly lit out to campaign for those European "votes"? He cares nothing for America but embraces that European style socialism like he WAS Stalin reincarnate.

For all of you berating the President for having a drink, please remember that his Republican predecessor was an alcoholic - reformed maybe - but still an alcoholic.

BTW, Heidi, might it have occurred to you that the Secret Service was probably driving.

I salute you, LakersFan, for being a voice of reason.

Hmm....he said he would, remember hunny? Just like he said he'd part the seas and make the rivers rise as well. He's nothing but broken promises and hype. Glad Americans are finally waking up.

Reading these comments I can see that our Country is going down hill fast. The lack of understanding of economics and history is astonishing. Bush was a moron puppet who was completely used by his daddy and his daddy's friends.

Please stop watching Fox News - your actually supporting China and other outside countries by contributing to their bottom line as a viewer. I live in NYC and we all know that Fox News is a sham cooked up so that it could beat CNN in the ratings. Check out Rupert Murdach and his Chinese national wife Wendi Deng-- she wants him to invest all his money in China!

Wow, a whole Margarita each; what awful drunkards. I think the tips were great but maybe they expected some privacy and discretion in return for it. Too bad they were disappointed in that regard.

Precisely my dear. Why then should the people with money have to be taxed to pay for the people with no money? You Obama supporters are a bunch of hyprocrites!
