Folks, the OP is from Ireland so it may be cool that any American president is visiting. However, he (darr1) doesn't have enough posts to visit P&R yet so please keep politics out of this thread for him.

Shucks, why not just put him up in some nice little s*** hole for the rest of his life. Most of us won't mind at all.

If you do that you'll get free metal work from me for life.
shipping not included.

Re: Obama Is Coming To Ireland


well 60 thousand people turned up to see obama it was a huge party atmosphere , would have been another 30 or 40 thousand who could not get in to see him , he gave the most amazing speech and he gave us over here a great lift , i had many a drink last night and it was great seeing everyone dressed in their american and irish hats and flags

How about a trade. You give us a couple of pints of some great Ale and you can keep him.

Ok, where is this P&R section and how many post do you have to have before you are of high enough standard to visit this section?
