Obama admits smoking cigs; someone should ask Bush about booze
During President-elect Barack Obamas Sunday appearance on NBCs "Meet the Press," host Tom Brokaw raised the topic of cigarettes. Obama, a one-time daily smoker, acknowledged that he has indeed bummed a few smokes here and there since telling the Chicago Tribune in February of 2007 that he had quit at his wifes urging.

There are times that I have fallen off the wagon, our next president told Brokaw. But what about "the wagon" and our outgoing president?

George W. Bush, by his own admission a heavy drinker from his youth through his 40th birthday party, is still known to drink non-alcoholic beer. But is it possible hes also drinking real beer or something harder on occasion?

12. And there is photographic evidence of him drinking beers with Merckel and Piscoe sours down
Edited on Wed Dec-10-08 03:47 PM by rvablue
in South America....was it in Peru?....

But if we catch a glimpse of Obama with a cigarette it'll turn into a national freakin' scandal.

Nevermind the George W. (the recovering alcholic) Bush has been spotted more than once publicly imbibing.

Edited for pic:



"US President George W. Bush drinks a traditional pisco sour. A source of national pride among party-loving Peruvians, the tart, frothy beverage that packs a punch has repeatedly taken center-stage at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum's gathering in the capital Lima."

5. It'd be great if they'd start with talking about upholding the constitution...
and work their way from there. Brokaw's a fucking chump. On that note, so is David Gregory...no more MTP for me.

6. Here's why someone should ask Bush about booze:
Because a large swath of the American People have been led to believe that he is completely "born again" and reformed, etc. If he's been sneaking drinks all this time, he would be forced to lie about it on record. That way, if any ex-aide or former White House staffer says Bush boozed as president, "43" will be humiliated in front of a crowd that has foolishly venerated him for 8 long years.

Someone, please ask the present president when he last tipped an alcoholic drink!

7. He ain't drinking near beer in this picture


That's a drunken monkey right there. Supposedly he was "ill" the next day too, although the German beer is so pure there shouldn't have been much of a hangover :beer:

10. Someone find a picture of a funnel
Or just get down to basics: Bring Dipshit an empty Buckler bottle, and a full glass of Monk-Made High Test.

What's the point? He ain't gonna tell the truth, anyway.
And in point of fact it doesn't matter if he quit drinking or not, because for eight years he was as self-centered, dishonest and unreliable as any practicing drunk would be.
