Middle-Class Warrior Quaffs a Guinness While His Props Go Domestic

Prior to hanging out with his millionaire and billionaire pals in Orlando Tuesday night, self-proclaimed middle-class warrior Barack Obama arranged for a photo op at a local Irish eatery. The carefully choreographed event for the cameras included some alleged out of work construction workers. Thes were probably those temporary workers that helped pave the Obama Parkway. Anyway, Obama patted himself on the back for being a champion of the little guy and even arranged for his downtrodden pals to have some Budweisers.

So what does the idiot order up for himself? Why, an imported beer, of course.
President Obama visited Orlando late today to collect campaign cash and tout his doomed $447 billion jobs bill while sipping beer with four unemployed construction workers.

Slumping in the polls and facing roadblocks on Capitol Hill, where his job bill stalled in the Senate later in the evening, Obama urged about 400 supporters at a downtown Sheraton hotel to summon "that same sense of urgency we had in 2008. Let's meet this moment."

Obama proclaimed himself a "warrior for the middle class" in his remarks at the Sheraton, where attendees paid between $44 and $250 to see the president.

He told the crowd that America is a nation of "rugged indivualists." But, he added, "there's always been this other thread in our history that says we're all connected, we're in this together. There are some things we can only do together as a nation."
Rugged individualists? Hmmm. Where have I heard that before?
Obama and Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer then stopped by the Harp and Celt Restaurant and Irish Pub, where they drank Guinness stouts while meeting for about 30 minutes with four out-of-work laborers, who drank Budweisers.
So these poor bastards, obviously unemployed because of Obama's economic disaster, have to settle for some bottled Buds while The One has himself a pint.

Real stuff of middle-class warrior legend right there.

After crushing his imported stout, Obama then got back to reality, where he rubbed elbows with his millionaire pals.
The president next headed to a $1,500-a-head fundraiser in nearby Lake Mary at the home of attorney John Morgan, whose firm recently hired former Gov. Charlie Crist. The host committee for the Lake Mary event included NBA veteran Grant Hill, basketball Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing, Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers and former baseball star Ken Griffey Jr.
Obama later revealed how heartbroken he was over the two-week delay to the NBA season. What the heck is a rugged individualist to do when he doesn't have his precious basketball?
