Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Be A Man, Serve Scotch

Apparently, our president drinks wuss beer. I've got to say, I really enjoy Sam Adams beer, so I like the suggestion from Congressman Neal. (Although, in all fairness, I also enjoyed Red Stripe when I was in Jamaica.) But the real issue here seems to be the fact that our president drinks Bud Light. Sure it's popular. In fact, it's the best-selling beer in America. But let's face it, that's because we stock it for beer pong and for our girlfriends and wives. Do you really believe that George Washington, were he to show up in modern America, would sidle up to the bar and order a Bud Light? More likely, he'd want some of this. Every terrorist and two-bit dictator who finds out that our president drinks light beer is now going to be emboldened to strike at us. President Obama, haven't you spent enough time proving your wussiness to the world already?
