Michelle & Barack Obama Chug Through Ireland

5/23/2011 2:00 PM PDT BY Johnny Lopez

First Lady Michelle Obama and President Barack Obama engaged in some high priority business while in Ireland on Monday ... downing pints of Guinness at a pub.

The Prez visited the Irish town of Moneygall -- the home of his great-great-great grandfather. 

After leading the bar in a toast ... the president plunked down some cash and told the bar tender, "I just want you to know that the President pays his bar tab ... that's how we do things."

Hopefully, he left a good tip.

"Hopefully, he left a good tip."

Actually, tips are built into the wage in Ireland, so tipping is something that most bartenders there don't even understand.

Cracks me up how everyone seemed to think that when Obama was elected that the joblessness & homelessness would be magically eradicated. I do believe that we got INTO THIS MESS under ANOTHER PRESIDENCY as well & its going to take years to dig out of this. Anybody remember the recession of the 80's? Anybody remember 'Reaganomics'? Same thing. Didn't happen overnite & it's not going away magically in 4 years either. Have a drink for me too Mr.Pres!

I guess it's now O'Obama. I'm a son of Ireland. This man is beyond a joke. Politics have nothing to do with anything. Simply not even close to being qualified.

So he's in Ireland, for what who knows. Once again, notice he never once mentioned the flooding and tornados that just hit the states. Couldn't even give a fake shout out. This man still can't even fake being concerned.

He's leaving tonight because of the volcanic ash that may hamper his departure.

Got to get to London.

I knew someone would lay down the racist card. If you don't like the "job" he is doing, you're a racist. He could sink the entire US and if you complain you are a racist.

Yeah, right, Tee. Throw that race card out. Did it ever occur to you that we all voted for Obama, and he's turned out to be a liar. He has kept none of his promises, and he is inept. It has NOTHING to do with race - this is the 21st century. We have a half black/white President. Slavery ended MANY YEARS ago, why can't you get over it???

***********************************************************

I can think of one really BIG promise he kept just recently & so can you.

So while the President and First Lady are boozing it up in Ireland, thousands are out of work here with no relief in site. I cannot wait to vote this man out of office in 2012.
