Wow!! We have to give this president lots of kudos, back slaps and exclaim "He's so smart", cause "He chose not to get updates from the secret service or others while he was on display in front of a televised audience and a roomful of news people."PCIntern Donating Member (1000+ posts) Sun May-02-10 09:25 AM
I amazed my wife last night...
No...it's not what you're thinking...
We were glued to the C-Span coverage of the dinner, and I noticed that the President arose twice and left the dais prior to the start of the 'entertainment portion'. I said to my wife, "Something must be going on...this reminds me of Bush NOT getting up on 9/11 somehow..." She thought it strange as well...that if he'd had to go to the bathroom,he'd have finished the job the first time.
Guess I was right...
Not to mention the fact that Bush was reading to young children for 7 minutes from the time he was first informed to the time he left and then was able to be flown out of the area.
Obama was at this thing for what? an hour or two? And good for him, he got up to get updates instead of getting them in front of the whole world. The left sure has low expectations for their hero.

2. I asked about it on the dinner thread
It was strange.I guess since Obama has made such a mess of things when he does something they consider right, even if it is as inconsequential as this, they need to make a big deal of it.PCIntern Donating Member (1000+ posts)

7. If you mean Times Square Smoke, I'd have to agree.
He wasn't gonna sit there and do the equivalent reading of My Pet Goat while a potential catastrophe was unfolding...
