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.

Of course you realize that this whole thing is bogus. They brought the beer from Washington! The president doesn't just waltz into a public house and order a pint.

Silly twits.

I know he has it out for the Jews. It's clearly obvious.

Let's be real here, the people that do support him are either hippies, left winged liberal idiots, or black. Everyone who do not support him are people with common sense.

JUST SAYING.

I think you all need to take it easy! It was such a great day here in Ireland. A real boost in morale. He spent all of an hour or so in his 'ancestral village' (not a town, for only 298 people live there!). He had a pint of the black stuff(which is stout,Guinness is not a beer), which with his wife's glass must have came to a grand total of approx $10. And we dont tip here, so surely you cant begrudge him those few dollars!
He has departed our shores again ahead of schedule because of the ash cloud, but in the 12 or so hours he was here he was great, a true gentleman.
I understand that as your president you will be in a better position to judge him, but today the way he took time to visit a small parish with no airs or graces was truly impressive.

There are many realities the President cannot face: an absent father, a hatred of America, inexperience in command, a bankrupt socialist ideology, a lack of faith, a profound ignorance of diplomacy. All his miserable shortcomings are unseen by him because of his ego, which coddles him and whispers "you are wise. you are powerful. you are better." ... He is the ultimate tragic figure - a grasping, self-absorbed mistake of a man.

You don't tip at pubs in Ireland. It's unecessary. Only dumb Americans do it.

And people WONDER WHY those who support this president think that race doesn't play a factor in all the hate for this president? Just look at the comments. Not just here either, go to ANY BLOG. Racists must think the average person is as simple minded as they are. The ones who even try to 'hide' their racism are transparent.

FYI PEOPLE, OBAMA RECENTLY RENEGED ON HIS PROMISES BLAMING IT ON PAST PRESIDENTS. I CALL B.S.!!! YOU DON'T MAKE A PROMISE AND RENEGE ON IT, STUPID.

I SWEAR PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR HIM ARE BUNCH OF IDIOTS AND NEED TO MOVE OUT OF MY COUNTRY.

Love My Fansabout a minute ago

The people who can only blather on and on about "Obama didn't get us into this mess" are stupid because THE POINT, morons, IS THAT HE HAS DONE ^NOTHING^ TO FIX THIS COUNTRY AND THE POINT, morons, IS THAT HE DID NOT KEEP EVEN ^ONE PROMISE^ THAT HE CAMPAIGNED ON. Got it now? And "LOL" all you want, you vapid stupid irrelevant little wasted pieces of space...life is apparently a big ignorant joke to you.
****************************************************

Just 'fix it' huh?? We've been at war for 10 years & the major banks & mortgage lenders had to be financially bailed OUT! Just 'fix it', right? Are you kidding me? This is not going to be fixed for a very long time. BTW Obama TOLD US IT WOULDN'T BE FIXED IMMEDIATELY EITHER! Where were you? No human being could fix this in 4 years, get into the real world man!
