I have differences with this President, but this is the best thing he’s done so far.

Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama enjoyed a beer with Dakota Meyer on the patio outside the Oval Office Wednesday. The president will present Meyer with the Medal of Honor Thursday during a ceremony at the White House.

“Meyer asked the staffer if he could have a beer with the President,” Carney said.

“POTUS invited Dakota to come by the White House this afternoon.”

Good for you, Mr. President.

    Don’t get to excited. I heard he’s going to use this screen time as an opportunity to announce a new beer tax. But only for the rich beer drinkers.

  2. As I noted on my blog, Yep, another Marine is a frikkin’ liar. In an article on ABC, Meyer said he’s no hero.

    Umm, really? Disragarding your own safety and rushing into danger to save the lives of your brothers-in-arms? That’s the very definition of being a hero, you frikkin’ jarhead. HUAH!
