Much is being said today about the doctors’ recommendations from Obama’s physical. All the talk centers on a little line in the UK Guardian:
The doctors also recommended "moderation of alcohol intake"
Needless to say there are many people wondering just how much does Obama drink. I too must admit when I first saw the story up on Drudge, I immediately thought of that picture with him and Biden and thought is this proof Obama is a heavy drinker? After reading the Guardian’s story, one immediately realizes that this is the same kind of advice, every doctor gives patients. My doctor tells me the same thing all the time, try to quit smoking and easy on the booze.
Full disclosure time: Another Black Conservative could have easily been called The Black Vodka Pundit, because I enjoy A vodka martini everyday before dinner. Drinking like this does not make one an alcoholic, but doctors do advise against it.
So in all fairness, despite the left being extremely cruel about Bush’s past drinking problems, I say leave Obama alone on this one. If the brother needs a beer or two to unwind after a day of spending us into oblivion, then let him be. Just one bit of advice I would give Obama: please drink the cheap stuff we’re broke!
