Happy Hour At “O’Bama's Place”

Did Barack Obama see my declaration of independence video, and if so, is he now actively trying to woo me back to the Democratic Party? If not, one could at least say he's found the way to my heart – he visited an Irish pub in my area on a recent campaign stop. You had me at “Hello, I’m Barack Obama, and I could use your vote.”



In all seriousness, I am not returning to the party in its present form. (If I find out Obama is a Guinness man, all bets are off). But I have begun to think that a nation under Obama – always my preferred candidate –would be a lot more fun. What some call "Obamanation" I call "O'Bama's Place," where happy hour is every hour.


"No, you don't need to see my ID, goddamit. I'm Barack friggin' Obama, the precedent... prestiden... (hiccup) fuggit... presidential candidate. No, not Osama, OBAMA! I am so sick and tired of hearing that crap! Who says I've had too many? Hey, I drive my campaign better when I've had a few. Hello, I didn't see you there. What's your name? Amanda? Amanda, you're really pretty."


Obama hasn't shied away from being seen with a pint - the proper serving size for beer - in his hand.


Happily married Obama still can't help but take notice of a beautiful lady when he spots one.

In recent presidential elections the question has been asked: With which candidate would you most like to enjoy a beer? If it’s going to be at an Irish pub, that's an easy one for me to answer.

Oh Pete! I love it, that's hilarious and even though I dont drink, though I have tasted Guinness and liked it, you can't beat a good Irish pub for lots of fun and a happy time with great company, music and dancing. Slanche! ;) xoxoxo ♥

Too awesome.

I wish Obama would show up at around here, but he probably wouldn't be able to plow through all of the McCain/Palin supporters to get to the bar. There are over 100 people where I work and I think there are 3 of us who are openly supporting Obama. Embarrassing.

dianne - am glad you enjoy the "craic" of an Irish pub...

LLL - you know Obama is leading in Florida now, right? what was once McCain-leaning is now up for grabs...

LeftLeaningLady said...

Pete, yes, I did know. But you have to remember that I am in the NW section of the state and most of the people here are active duty or retired military. Many are completely brainwashed and haven't thought for themselves in YEARS. I am just glad that some of us are supporting him and that those in the other sections of the state are going to be able to pull off an Obama win. It won't make up for the horror in 2000, but it could help a little.

i didnt know obama hung out with billy idol! well this is a fitting octoberfest - you, and guiness and obamalamfofamashakadamna hell i will drink with anyone today.

As a retired Army officer who was also in the Military Police, I will vote for Obama in a heartbeat. It is about time we got a president who is willing to ponder the issues, listen to advice and make a reasoned decision that is best for the rest of us. I have been a lifelong Democrat and been called a Liberal, whatever the hell that means anymore. senrx!

Guinness is great!!!!

Pete Bogs said...

LLL - it's sad that so many military folk are right wing by default... another reason I love my buddy jack!

k9 - jamalamadingdong? I couldn't resist a post when I read this story the other day... I have spent many an hour at an Irish - can't imagine O'Bama stopping in...

nice to see you!

jack - how's Augusta looking these days? a bit depressing for me because my grandparents and aunt who lived there are now gone... no reason to visit anymore...

keep those liberal flags flying!

Pete, the biggest disappointment was reported here. The Tip-Top was a favorite spot.
We didn't spend a lot of time walking around downtown. We did walk a good portion of the River Walk which was wonderful.

We were also able to find all of the places we lived the two times we were stationed at Ft. Gordon. All of the places, both on post and off were in very good condition.

You probably wouldn't recognize the place. I know we didn't.

It was fun for us, particularly visiting the fort with former colleagues.

You need to visit just to have a burger at the Village Deli. I think they even serve Guinness there. Perhaps I should google them to find out.

We Liberals need to articulate our position more clearly and succinctly.

Keep on truckin'.

BTW, you might want to visit bird's site and take a look at the questions she is asking of McCain and Palin.

rev x - so nice to see you, mate... I've been off-duty for most of the last year, but am planning posts throughout October... stop in anytime!

boneman said...

well, I'll be doggone if a friend of mine didn't make some t-shirts with Obama's face on them (real modern like) and give them to the Govenor of New Mexico (?) who in turn gave them to Obama and he's wearing it?

Who knows the details? Certainly not me.

Pete Bogs said...

boney - sounds cool... true?

Liberal Banana said...

Okay, again. HILARIOUS. I am sitting here eating my lunch, laughing out loud.

Are you not going to vote in November?

I would love to have a drink with Hillary Clinton. I wonder what would come out of her mouth when she's had one too many drinks... :)

Pete Bogs said...

LB - I have to vote, if only to prevent Amendment 2 (anti-gay marriage) from passing... I do love Obama, but am mad at Dems right now...

Lil Bit said...

Well, it's not only the Irish who like him... in Japan, Obama is apparently the bomb-ah! LOL
