Does Michelle Obama have a drinking problem? Is alcohol rehab part of healthcare plan?

"So tell me, Lizzie, where can a gal get a glass of warm Guinness around here?"

If it weren’t for the National Enquirer’s outstanding work on the John Edwards “Baby Mama” story, this new story would easy to laugh off. But nobody’s laughing. Especially Barack Obama.

Michelle Obama – cracking under the pressure of being First Lady – is drinking way more than she should, friends fear.

Longtime pals have been keeping a close eye on her White House booze intake for months, sources told The ENQUIRER, and her husband President Barack Obama even stepped in when she recently consumed too much alcohol.



“When Barack saw Michelle drink more than she should at a recent dinner, he hit the roof. He told her, ‘This is NOT going to turn into a problem!'” a close source told The ENQUIRER.



“Barack is overly sensitive to the issue because of his own past drinking and substance abuse problems. But he also feels guilty because of the pictures taken of him drinking beer at an NBA game recently.”



The President also feels he may have contributed to his wife’s alcohol issues by not stopping her from overindulging during their date night in New York City on May 30.



Michelle, 45, knocked back “a glass or two of champagne” while the couple flew to the Big Apple on a private jet, according to the close source, and published reports said she downed two martinis during dinner at the Greenwich Village restaurant Blue Hill.



“It was clear that Mrs. Obama was having a VERY good time,” a restaurant employee told The ENQUIRER. 



“There’s a real fear that she may be drinking more than she should as a result of the pressures that come along with being First Lady,” an insider divulged.

It looks like “Last call” are the First Lady’s least favorite words.

Um, Bush doing blow = rumor. Could be true, but Bush has never admitted he did blow. What Bush did say is that he could have, but doesn’t remember enough of his party days to know. Obama doing blow = fact. Obama has admitted doing blow. And Larry Sinclair admitted doing blow with Obama…

Bush did blow… so did Obama…

I really don’t care if she drinks, in fact I hope the camera’s catch her in public intoxicated a few times… Obama needs another scandal like Michael Jackson needed more plastic surgery.

Maybe she can give Teddy Kennedy a drive home. (And young Patrick too.)
