The Guardian reports that President Obama’s doctors have recommended he moderate his “alcohol intake.” Most reportage on the president’s recent physical has focused on Mr. Obama’s continuing smoking habit, but revelation of a potential drinking problem is a much bigger story. How much “alcohol intake” does it take to get a doctor’s attention? And what did the president drink and when did he drink it? If nothing else it might help explain some of Mr. Obama’s policy priorities, and why the government is spending money like a drunken sailor.
