Root Beer and Terrorism?

Since when do American Presidents pander to the dietary demands of constituent groups looking for political favor? When did US political leaders lose the right to drink a beer or a glass of wine when at sit-downs with opposing factions? And, finally, when did Barack Obama decide the desires of a small, but financially influential, group of foreign and domestic special interest lobbyist get precedent over the will of the American people? Oh, wait, I answered my own question.
