yeah, Obama put his foot in his mouth. Only 4,999,999 more times to go if he wants to catch W. Fudd.

I think it shows that Obama is willing to think outside the box and do things out of the ordinary. It also reminds me of [I]King Ralph[/I] when John Goodman has a beer with the King of Zambezi.

Did you see the pic on CNN they each have like a ten ounce beer. So funny!

CNN also says Gates switched from Red Stripe to Samuel Adams Light...and give it to good old Joe Biden to drink Buckler...

While a logistical nightmare, this would have been better to be conducted at one of the local bars...

Pretty funny that so much was made over what they would drink. I mean really, who the F cares.

By the way folks I plan on drinking a few selections from the mixed case I picked up from the [URL="http://www.cooperstownbrewing.com/beer.htm"]Cooperstown Brewery[/URL] tonight, just in case you were keeping track.

I came across this gem earlier today. I am having some Krystal Weisen delivered to my brothers house in VA.

I like how on the Today Show this morning, Chuck Todd (I think it was him) said Joe Biden was a last minute invite "to bring racial balance"

Obama: Hey Joe, you got any plans for tonight?
Joe: Well, I was thinking of going to see The Hangover
Obama: Cancel it, I need another white guy for tonight

I predicted that was going to happen, sure enough.

Actually, that was probably the issue that intrigued me most about this otherwise silly meeting. Kudos to Crowley and Gates for actually choosing to drink beer at a beer summit; Obama's Bud Light is pretty much indistinguishable from Biden's Buckler.

The amount of coverage this has recieved is seriously ridiculous. As much as the media HATED bush, they sure as hell love them some Obama. I'm just waiting for MSNBC to report something along the lines of "Obama takes piss, puts out forest fire."

I agree. This silly meeting was only interesting from the standpoint of what they actually drank. If they had seriously thrown down I would have an improved opinion of all them.

Buckler? Seriously Joe? Buckler? He doesn't strike me as a teetotaler.

I'm really surprised, well, not really surprised, that what Obama did didn't get more scrutiny on here.
1- The professor was DEAD wrong for not showing his ID.
2- He was rightfully taken in by a police officer doing his job.
3- Obama decides to make this national news by losing his composure and speaking about it. Seriously folks, there are ACTUAL racist things going on in america.
4- He then invites them to the white house, where he should have apologized to the cop and told his friend the professor to shut up.
5- He SHOULD have spoken out about the 911 operator that has been harassed ever since doing her job, but that poor girl has been racially profiled and blasted publicly.

Of course, none of this really matters cause Obama seems to do no wrong with people here. I'll say it, since others appear to be afraid to (minus a few)...He has done a horrible job as president thus far, and these kinds of things will continue to happen cause while he has a calm eloquent way about him, he has no substance, or experience and should have never been voted in.
Funny how a non racial issue became a racial issue with the cop / professor due to someone "claiming" racism, but the ACTUAL racism issue was how the the 911 operator was treated and no one said a word. (relatively speaking)

I don't know about you guys, but having someone that can lose his emotions and composure enough to speak out about this when he has no leg to stand on makes me nervous about his leadership skills.
Say what you want about Bush, but at least he had balls and knew what to stand up for.

I hear Gates and Crowley might go to a Red Sox game together. That'd be pretty cool if it happens.

Really? I don't think that would be cool. I think it would be the continuation of a dumb charade. I'm pretty sure Gates and Crowley aren't exactly pals. I mean, maybe they now have a mutual respect, maybe, but I doubt it goes any further than that. This situation should just go away.
