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.

I SEE PRETENTIOUS BASTARDS WITH THEIR BIG GRINS AND MEDALLIONS HANGING FROM THE NECKS TOASTING TO GREATNESS WHEN PEOPLE ON THE HOMEFRONT ARE SUFFERING.

What is he toasting the fact that over 60 people died in the Tornado's in Mo. Maybe Oblamey could take a minute out of his busy schedule and actually take care of the people that are suffering in this country.

"I don't mind obama near as much as that baboon looking female he breeds with."

Looks like the KKK/teaparty brigade is out in full force.

Lets see. Bush inherited surplus and allowed 9/11 to happen under his watch and then never caught Osama. He plunged us into teh worst recession since the great depression.

Obama inherited that mess, actully kills the basta*d responsible for 9/11 and is fixing the economy. Did he make a few mistakes-sure-but nothing will be enough for the KKK brigade. Go away-the civil war was over more than a century 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.

All I gotta say glad I do not think for other people or jump to conclusion on what they may be thinking .. Freedom of speech mmhm

"...Mitt knows how to work, keep our money in this country, and knows that we cannot buy our way out of debt like this administration thinks..."

What the hell..how do you know what Mitt Romney can do? Keep our money in this country? We live in a global world, and we cannot keep anything in or out of our borders Am I to take it you have a degree in Economics? Do you even understand any of the components of our economic predicament? How it happened or what it will take to get us out of it? Foolish people sitting around scratching themselves with no education with stupid opinions.

President Barack Obama called Missouri Governor Jay Nixon, during his visit to Dublin, Ireland, May 23, 2011. The south is having the worst of luck. Hopefully, nothing like that happens soon in Texas!

Glad yu paid for the beer, are you paying the U.S. Taxpayer back for taking ole Michelle on the trip with you. And how about the whole family that usually goes around the world with you at our expense???? I know you want Michelle and the girls to see the World at our expense while your in the W.H. but gosh I don't want to pay for them to see the world when I can't afford to see it myself.

Oh please, Sarah
I am way over it . Im not playing a race card. but dont act as if the race card is NOT in the deck.

-----------------------------------------------------

Yes Tee, it's in the deck because idiots like you keep it in there in case you want to use it as an asinine excuse whenever you have no valid argument.
