Obama marks St Patrick's Day with pint in a pub
Obama marks St Patrick's Day with pint in a pub 
Clean Media Correspondent 
Washington: Mar 18: (CMC)   His jacket was only moss green but his pint was true Guinness. 
US President Barack Obama tilted back a glass of the dark Irish brew on Saturday, observing St Patrick's Day at a boisterous Irish pub with his ancestral cousin from Moneygall, Ireland, at his side. 
At the White House, the main South Lawn Fountain burbled green water. Nearby, workers prepared for a visit Tuesday by the Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny. 
The first family was putting on its Irish, a blood line that runs through Obama's veins. 

Obama took his motorcade to the Dubliner Restaurant and Pub last afternoon. He wore no Kelly green but his jacket was pierced with a button that read, "VIP GUEST, Tell 'em Danny sent you”. 
The President waded into a crowd, some in leprechaun hats and others in dyed green hair, at the entrance of the tavern near Washington's landmark Union Station. 
He wished one reveller, Adam Joseph, a happy 29th birthday.
