For God sakes ,one beer is't cause him to push the wrong buttom. With all the things some of these other Presidents done, I don't think he's ready for AAA. He is human. People who live in glass houses should'nt throw rocks.

Triple AAA is the car club...so no with limos and all he probably doesn't need that...I think they keep a pit crew in the trunk...

The only problem I could see is if he were driving.... so since he has a designated driver what is the problem? Shhesh.....wonder what issues they would have made if he had put a hotdog in his mouth? Accused him of being a closet bathroom Republican?

I guess now the Republicans are going to label Obama an alcoholic? In some ways it's going to be a loooong 4 years.

I didn't vote for him. I don't agree with his policies. But having a beer at a ball game is about as American as it gets.

I'd be more worried about him continuing Bush's policies of spending this country into shambles or the lack of judgement shown by selecting tax cheats for his cabinet nominees than whether or not he is drinking a beer.
