The Obamas Take Heat For Drinking Guinness In Ireland

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama were spotted jugging  a Guinness tuesday while in the Irish town of Moneygall, the home of the President’s great-great-great grandfather.  The photos sparked a bit of outrage in the press with one outlet stating:

Last week the Queen of England politely passed on a pint, but on Monday the President of the United States didn’t. In what the British press called a potential monstrosity, it was said that a single sip of the beer would have caused the Brits complete outrage as it is uncouth to drink in public on tour. Comparing the two dignitaries and their subsequent actions on drinking in front of the cameras goes to show just how different we still are when you compare American to the British. The Brits refrain from public drinking on camera and the American’s raise their glass to get the whole glass in the camera shot.”

Other outlets were more in an uproar that he was chugging down beers in Ireland instead of tending to the tornado disaster in Joplin, MO.
