This is why the Obamas are making such a big deal of the home brew. This is why they're travelling with bottles of beer: to make a rather subversive point about Romney's Mormonism. They could do it with coffee. Or soda. But beer is the most effective way to show how "out of touch" he is while they follow the "traditional All-American home brewing" methods.
Because we couldn't possible elect a president who doesn't like beer, right? How shallow.
The pandering continues in this report by Mary Bruce who reports on Obama's most recent beer stop:
Are we really to believe that the big black armored bus was rolling down the road when Obama spontaneously saw a sports bar and decided he wanted to stop for a beer? That the Secret Service hadn't come through and cleaned the place? That Obama just wanted to catch the game and have a brew?
There isn't much the president of the free world does that is quite that spontaneous.
That the press thinks we would be fooled by this transparent attempt to make Romney appear as The Other and Not Normal is pathetic. It's sad.
I don't care if Obama drinks beer or if Romney doesn't. Does anybody really vote that way?
I suppose next we'll be hearing about a new Oktoberfest celebration on the White House lawn.
