just answer the question please....
i really would like to know...
I smiled, shook his hand, and said "Its my duty Sir but I appreciate your thanks"
Shake his hand and buy him a beer.
Think about this carefully people. If it were Obama, after his term was over, I would do the same. Regardless of how you feel about a President's Policies or views, it is the toughest job in the World.
I do not envy the things these Presidents have to do in the name of OUR Country. Despite how much fun, media and other outlets would lead you to believe they are having, I can assure you, there are bound to be situations they deal with that they would not wish on their staunchest critics.
Shake their hand, and offer them a gesture of kindness. This being said, I would not offer Bush a beer, but rather a soda. He is a recovering Alcoholic.
Would you offer Obama a smoke?
Just some thoughts to ponder here. The President is the President, for better or for worse. If you don't like it, then move to another Country. Respect the Office!
Like I've always said....I think President Obama would be cool to take to a bruins game and have some beers with...a lot cooler than I find him as my current Commander-in-Cheif and President!
I disagree with his policies but on a personal level he seems like a cool dude.
