Is Bush off the Wagon?


President Bush is reportedly spending time resting in his room with a “stomach ailment” which White house spokesman Dan Bartlett defines as “not serious”. Nicolas Sarkozy, the French President described him as “slightly unwell”.

Bushbeer_2Said Bartlett: “We’re not sure if it was something he ate last night or this morning.”

Just a thought, but perhaps Bush’s “illness” has something to do with the beer he’s seen chugging in these photos.

And….he’s back.

ps – I did a quick check and the photo’s recent. It’s the same jacket/tie combo he was wearing for his meetings with Sarkozy.

UPDATE: Some folks are saying that the beer in question may be of the non-alcoholic “Buckler” brew. Also, as one of our commenters notes, there is no such thing as “non-alcoholic” beer. Near beers are low alcohol and alcoholics are advised to stay away from them.
