Obama’s Drinking Problem? Get Over It!


Much was being made in conservative talk radio today of the results of President Obama’s physical. It’s common knowledge that he is a smoker and that his doctors want him to quit smoking but the news today was that they also want him to moderate his alcohol intake. Most of the comments I heard weren’t all that inconsiderate but the underlying feeling was that Obama might have an alcohol problem.

My advice? Get over it! Unless Obama’s drinking is out of control and impairing his ability to govern, it doesn’t matter to me in the slightest. Could it just be that he’s having one too many during the week without actually getting drunk or even getting a buzz, for that matter? The report doesn’t say he’s an alcoholic or that he needs an intervention, for crying out loud.

Oh, and for all you liberals out there that believed in and spread rumors about Bush’s supposed binge drinking and/or doing cocaine during his presidency, spare me the hypocrisy about your outrage over what people are saying about Obama and his drinking. You’re just as bad.
