>>> in addition to the paper napkins, which she usually takes, we brought cloth napkins as well. we have a white house m&m's. we have a deck of marine one playing cards. some white house beer.
>> that's president obama and the first lady bringing a few little treats to "the view" this week. the white house special honey ale. it sounds good. it's not just president obama . george washington also brewed his own. fdr repealed prohibition and said it was a good time for a beer. it's no wonder we see politicians throwing them back out on the campaign trail. pollsters are known to ask who would you rather have a beer with? maybe the more important question is, what kind of beer? a national journal piece is getting a lot of buzz, no pun intended. it's called what your beer says about your politics, analyzing more than 200,000 interviews to find out which beer brands are associated with what political brands. guys, from that survey they found from their very scientific and important research i would add, top republican beers are amstel light , sam adams , coors light . top democratic bierce, heineken, corona, stella artois .
>> and dos equis, busch, and fosters.
>> i was thinking of miller high life when they were taking orders earlier. if they don't have, i'll go with whatever you got.
>> so coors light . that's what you go with when you take whatever you can get.

>> they gave a ton of money to republican and conservative causes.

>> because i'm a great patriot, sam adams which is actually a republican beer apparently.
>> you're close to the aisle there.
>> but i don't believe it because the true patriots here.

>> about as far from massachusetts as you can get.
>> but it's americana.
>> i want to throw in the ring hat tip to brian, i do like dos equis or dos equis. i like the commercials, the most interesting man.
>> the oldest man at the club. that's what he is.
>> such a weirdo. he creeps me out.
