Obama: Conducting The Nation’s Business

By Wyatt Earp | April 10, 2009


. . . At the White House swing set. Seriously.

Apparently, there is nothing going on in the world serious enough to warrant meetings indoors.

Another busy day at the White House: First Lady Michelle Obama hosted students from Bancroft High School in Washington, who helped her plant and water the brand-new White House garden. She and Agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack spoke to the students about the healthy fruits and veggies that would grow there. “It’s all brain food,” Obama said. She cheered the kids for bringing good weather and then sent them (and the press) home with cookies.

The weather was so nice in fact, that, after President Obama received his economic briefing and met with Defense Secretary Robert Gates in the Oval Office, the POTUS and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton decided to hold their 4:15 meeting out behind the White House—next to the swing set installed for the Obama girls in March.

Striding out from the West Wing, the two seemed thick as thieves—smiling, Secretary Clinton casually swung her leg over the bench on the east side of the playground, and the president grinned and waved to gawking reporters and staff as he sat down across from her. After all, it was just a year ago that Clinton could be seen crying, “Shame on you, Barack Obama.” (H/TThe Root)

Um, what the Hell??? The country’s economy is swirling down the terlet, an American ship captain is being held by pirates, North Korea is launching missiles, and Seth Rogan is appearing in his 2,000th film. Can our president at least pretend to be serious about the job?

What’s next, national security meetings at Chuck E. Cheese’s?

    Note to hostile states, if you hire a lip reader, and give said person a good telescope, you might be able to get some dope intelligence on America.

    Of course the Secret Service is not concerned because the foreign governments will probably just assume the information is an elaborate joke, as no administration could possibly be so out of touch with events.

    If I had to meet with Hillary, I would want to do it outside also. I can’t imagine spending most of my free time inside meeting about things I don’t care or know anything about. MUD

    RT – Not with my back turned.

    Proof – She must be miffed that he still hasn’t done anything about the pirates.

    Diller – That set probably costs more than my car.

    Marvin – No administration since Carter, anyway.

    MUD – Plus, the smell from “down under.” Heh.
