One controversy after another dogs El Presidente as he pours a cold one with his new-found beer buddies.
Earlier this week the White House indicated each man would drink the beer of their choice — Bud Light for President Obama, Blue Moon for the police officer, and perhaps Red Stripe or Beck’s for Gates.
But one Massachusetts congressman thinks another beer entirely should be served: Boston’s own Sam Adams.
In a letter to Obama dated Wednesday, Massachusetts Rep. Richard Neal strongly urges the president not to drink Budweiser, now owned by a Belgian company. Nor should the White House consider serving Miller or Coors, Neal writes, both owned by a United Kingdom conglomerate.
These are weighty issues. This is behavior unbecoming the leader of the free world. I think the President should just resign.
(I glad that I created our new “Beer” tag because it appears to be well positioned for heavy use in the immediate future)
But in the mean time and in light of Congressman Neal’s push to elevate one’s choice of beer to the national stage, we can speak up, be heard, and tell our President what beer we think he should drink for the betterment of our nation (these are all real beers).
