Jay Carney: Bowing to demand White House at last will releaseâ beerrecipe


It’s a start, at least. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney this evening announced that the most transparent administration ever will bow to public pressure and release the recipe for its home-brewed Honey Ale — if enough people log on and sign a petition.

The petition is indeed real and has a goal of 25,000 signatures. It’s hosted on the White House’s “We the People” site, which promises to give “all Americans a way to engage their government on the issues that matter to them.”

Flip-flop alert! Just hours before, Carney had said he wasn’t aware of any plans to release the recipe.

No White House Honey Ale recipe will be released — even despite petitions and Freedom of Information Act requests (!) http://t.co/IY9xWqg4

Who knew it was so easy to tap into White House secrets with just a petition?



.@PressSec Forget the WH beer recipe. Release the college transcripts and passport information.

@PressSec @wethepeople I think Obama’s college transcripts would be interesting. SS #, foreign national etc

@PressSec @wethepeople I just want 2 note that MOST of us aren’t interested in a beer recipe, but how about a budget? Just a thought. #tcot

If you can’t wait for the petition to reach the threshold, others are offering alternative recipes.

Save you the trouble,
1. Water
2. Sugar
3. Koolaid
@PressSec: Got a Q today on @wethepeople petition asking us to share WH beer recipe:

@PressSec @wethepeople @whitehouse How about a recipe for jobs!

@PressSec @wethepeople now that the economy is fixed we can move on to beer!

For now, at least, it seems you have to drink it to find out what’s in it. But what should we call it? Let’s consult Twitter for some #ObamaBeerNames.
