'Offaly' Good Mates!

Brian Cowen has found himself a soulmate and his name is President Barack H. Obama!

It has often been said that our Taoiseach can look dour at the very best of times. But when he smiles - he is a different man altogether.

As the White House rolled out the green carpet for the Irish on St Patrick’s Day, our own Taoiseach was grinning like a cheshire cat that got the cream for the day.

Disarming, enchanting and charismatic, the US President had the Irish eating out of the palms of their hands. And Brian Cowen knew exactly the effect the President was having.

He said he’d love to welcome Obama to his real home of Offaly but was quick to warn him that he is the number one son there.

“The only thing I can say to him is that he is not going to share a slate with me. I cannot compete with this man - even in Offaly!”

Don’t be so hard on yourself, Taoiseach, remember President Obama’s mantra - “yes you can”!
