While I think Obama’s lame-ass attempt at damage control is inappropriate, I nonetheless am intrigued by this question, posed by FOX:
YOU DECIDE: If you could have a beer with any politician, living or dead, who would it be? Share your thoughts. Click on “Leave a Comment” below.
Now just to make things interesting, I want to know the answer to both, plus one other question.
Here are my answers:
1. If you could have a beer with any living politician, who would it be?
Answer: George W. Bush.
I think this is an easy one for people to understand. As most of you probably know, Blogs For Victory began as Blogs For Bush back in November 2003. I devoted a lot to helping his reelection in 2004, and that ultimately lead to be going to the 2004 Republican Convention, getting a book deal, and scores of things that began as a result of my blogging success. And, quite frankly, I greatly appreciate what he did for this country. I may not have always agreed with him, but I know he always did what he felt was the right thing to do. His leadership in the wake of the 9/11 attacks kept us safe. There is so much I’d love to talk to him about.
And, I know he doesn’t drink, but I would settle for coffee.
2. If you could have a beer with any dead politician, who would it be?
Answer: Ronald Reagan
I was born in 1980, so, there isn’t much I can really remember about Reagan’s presidency directly, but it is hard to deny the leadership he showed in the face of tough challenges. We all benefit today because of things he accomplished or set in motion.
3. What beer would you choose?
Answer: Dogfish Head 90-Minute IPA or Victory Brewing Company Golden Monkey
There’s not much that needs to be said here… Awesome brews from awesome breweries.
How about you? Feel free to explain.
