Bush Twins Carded, Beer Confiscated

First twins Barbara and Jenna Bush apparently learned little from their scrape last year with Texas lawmen, who were called by the Bush-hating manager at an Austin Tex Mex restaurant who spotted the underage duo ordering Margaritas with fake ID.

They've been luckier this summer but not a whole lot more careful, according to a source at one Arlington, Va., pub not far from the White House.

The bar, Iota's, was carding very thoroughly one recent Thursday night, so the presidential twins' "fake IDs must be sweet," the source tells the magazine Washingtonian Online.

"When a bartender recognized the twins, he took their beers away," the e-zine reports. "But the twins still stuck around."

The Bush girls, who turn legal later this year, reportedly visited the bar with "a pack of pals" to see a folk band called Brown Couch, whose guitarist attends Yale with Barbara.

If this were Chelsea, the papers would be gushing over how glamourous she looked.

Note to W: Please ground them this time, so that they'll know not to pull this stunt again...

If this were anyone else but the Bush daughters, they would have been thrown out of the club and possibly arrested...

20 year olds not legal to take a drink. Stupid law.

I hope they throw one hell of a party when they turn 21. They deserve it.

They're under 21, they live in his house - he can ground 'em. If they're that immature, they've got no business being out without supervision to begin with.

I mean damn! How hard is it to get your booze at home, and getting something non-alcoholic when you're out -- especially when you know that folks are gunning for you?

Kinda doubt that. I bet a good portion in attendance were under age. Doesn't make it right and they should know better, but most cases of underage drinking, people look the other way.

Like it or not, times have changed and NOW it is ILLEGAL. I am a strong supporter of Bush, but these incidents are embarrassing. Frankly these girls are showing a lot of immaturity and selfishness by continuing to break the law, especially when they know they are under intense scrutiny. I know they didn’t run for President, their father did. So get over it & grow up. I’m sure they enjoy the perks of being the President’s daughters, now take responsibility.

Maybe that's true there - it sure isn't true here in California. They are pretty strict about enforcing the age laws in bars here...

Well, what a surprise. I told some people this morning that I thought Limbacher was using the drinking thing again (on the Hilary thread). He is now reporting campus gossip, which we all know is so accurate. Feh.

Let's go one better - they've got a freakin' Secret Service detail fer Pete's sake! How hard is it for one of them to say, "Uh, Joe, can you go to the liquor store and get us a bottle of Thunderbird?"

If you or I took a drink in public at 20, the world would yawn. But then again, our every movement wouldn't be recorded by the intrusive press, and our folks never lived in the WhiteHouse. When the twins were caught a big to do was made about it - but they keep getting caught again and again. You know some slimy Democrat strategist is going to come up with some negative ad about Bush with words like: "How can Bush claim to be for family values, when his own children don't even respect the law?"

You got it - and with their luck, I wouldn't be surprised if such an ad showed with the girls on tape at some bar either drinking or asking for a drink. I certainly wouldn't put it past Carville.

Same here in Florida. You can be on your own private property, and be under 21, and get cited for possession of alcohol by a minor. You can be thrown out and cited at a bar. Some group here in Tallahassee is trying to get the City Commission to pass a law making it an arrestable offense if caught with a drink in your hand and being underage. Right now, you get cited, and have to appear in court or whatever. Some people want the law to change so that the person is taken downtown and put in a cell. The commission and cops are against it, so it wont happen.

Even worse when they can use Texas's tough underage drinking law that Bush signed as a hypocritical attempt to call him a...a...hypocrite. Damn where's that thesaurus.

It is perhaps the most ridiculous and stupid law in this nation, and also one that violates at least the spirit of the Tenth Amendment (since the feds blackmail states into keeping their drinking ages artificially high). Frankly, I'd like to see one or both of them come out and say that...perhaps it would provoke a debate on the subject.

Not in Texas, he wasn't. Drinking age went from 21 to 18 in 1973, W was legal by ~5-6 years then.

AppyPappy sayeth:

He was legally drinking at their age.

The reason this wouldn't work against Bush in a campaign is that thousands of parents have kids in college and they know their kids are drinking alcohol.

It would cause more empathy toward Bush on the part of the moderate parents, than it would cause angst. That's why I don't believe it will be used as a campaign ploy.

Wait a minute. Don't these girls have SS pigs surrounding them whereever they go?

Seems to me that cute little Chel's had bodyguards with her constantly.

LOL...how do you ground 20 year old college students that aren't even living at home? The leader of the free world is powerless before his twin girls..hehe:)

These two girls are a disgrace; besides being just plain stupid. The total lack of respect for the law, their parents, this nation, me . . . is unbelievable.

I hate to say it, but Chelsea appears to be 10 times the lady either one of these are.

The 21 drinking age is moronic nanny-statism at its worst. Good for them.

You can bash someone as far away as the cook or even the mailman and you'll still qualify.

I agree entirely. Nevertheless, it is the law and when you are the daughter of the President it is both selfish and immature to continue to break the law.

Was probably a resturant or coffee bar. Folk bands don't play in hard core bars or night clubs. Most of the people there were probably under 21.

Oh yeah, grounding kids a few months before their 21st birthday, that works real well. /sarcasm.

OK, TBall, straighten me out here. The only think I remember being reported about C. was that she was seen kissing her date at a clug somewhere. Perhaps you have more data to contribute. Like I said, "I hate to say it," so show me where I'm wrong--please.
