President Obama celebrated an extended St. Patrick’s Day at the White House Mar. 20 with a visit from Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who assured Obama that his debt-ridden nation would make an economic comeback. The President also celebrated over the weekend with a quick trip to a popular Washington DC Irish bar, where he contentedly quaffed a pint of Guinness surrounded by hundreds of excited, green-clad and, errrr, "jovial" partiers.
