Icelandic Volcanoes Hate President Obama

US President Barack Obama (L) sips a glass of Guinness in a pub as he visits Moneygall village in rural County Offaly, Ireland, where his great-great-great grandfather Falmouth Kearney hailed from, on May 23, 2011. Obama landed in Ireland on May 23, 2011 for a visit celebrating his ancestral roots, kicking off a four-nation European tour.

Just like last year, when President Obama was unable to travel to Poland for the funeral of president Lech Kaczynski, ash from Icelandic volcanoes are once again disrupting his travel schedule. It's not as much of a nuisance this time, though: Obama will leave Ireland for London tonight instead of tomorrow, which may just mean he has to spend less time pretending to enjoy Guinness.
