"Security surrounding Obama is so tight that he is not permitted to drink a pint of Guinness unless it has been classified as ‘secure’ by the secret service. Obama is due to have a pint in Ollie Hayes Pub in Moneygall but it has been decided that the keg of Guinness is being brought from the U.S.
‘The last thing we need is for Obama to be poisoned by a pint in Ireland,’ according to sources."
Volcano ash forces Obama to leave Ireland early.
"The car contains a tear-gas cannon, oxygen tanks and bottles of the president's AB blood. It can drive at speeds of more than 60mph with punctured tyros."
"And a group of six doctors are on stand-by with supplies of Mr Obama's AB blood ready to use in any medical emergency."
"A supply of AB-type blood, Mr Obama’s type, is on hand in case of a serious incident or assassination attempt."

Ok guys. First to clear some things up:
1. All draught and pub draught canned Guinness in the United States comes from the brewery at St. James Gate in Dublin, Ireland.
2. All Guinness is transported to the United States by ship.
We would love to see you drink Guinness free for the rest of your life. Unfortunately, your wife's friend is incorrect. Guinness is transported by ship to the US. Guinness has a shelf life of nine months so the quality will maintain during the transportation. Also, Guinness cans contain the widget which is pressurized with nitrogen. If something were to happen to the pressure in the cabin, it could get quite messy! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us again!

He revealed to pub-goers that it wasn't his first pint in Ireland either and suspected that the Irish were holding back their best brew for themselves. He said he first drank stout when he flew into the airport in Shannon, Ireland, en route to Afghanistan.
"I tried one of these and I realized it tastes so much better here than it does in the states," he said. "What I realized was that you guys, you're keeping all the best stuff here. "
Previous American presidents didn't fare as well as Obama.
In 1984, Ronald Reagan rejected the Guinness and instead posed for photographers with a pint of Smithwicks, a locally brewed red ale. He didn't finish it.
In 2006, George W. Bush, a recovering alcoholic who drinks non-alcoholic beer, wasn't asked to pose with a pint of Guinness at all.
Many expected more from Bill Clinton, but ended up deeply disappointed. In 1995, Clinton stopped at a Dublin pub bearing his family's Irish name of Cassidy but barely sipped his stout. Aides said he didn't want to be photographed drinking anything alcoholic, but the resultant image was hardly an endorsement of the product. Clinton had abandoned his almost full half-pint.
And what the hell is a Krauthammer?
