Excerpt:

About an hour before reporters were supposed to be in position to leave with the president, Obama left the grounds of the White House. Members of the press were told he was attending one of his daughter’s soccer games in northwest Washington, D.C.

The White House press corps traditionally travels with the president anywhere he goes, inside or outside the country, to report on the president’s activities for the benefit of informing the public and for historical record.


Obama has NO ANSWERS for their questions!

No. The real reason that the press follows the President is so that they can be there to report on an repeat of the JFK or Reagan assaination(s)/attempts. There was no ‘protocol’ for the press to follow the President even in the eary FDR years. How do you think that FDR was able to maintain a mistress? JFK on the other hand had the press running ‘interference’ for his extramarital affairs...

Has he said one word (officially) about the Polish Presidential plane crash?

Maybe I missed it, but he should have been out there at the crack of dawn -- in a suit and tie -- expressing regret and support for the country of Poland and their mourning public.

I have seen no such video of this, because he has done no such thing. What a dickhead.

Correct me if I'm wrong (about the official statement, not about the last comment of my post.)

Nobody wins at soccer.

It's like that scene at the end of War Games. Where the computer (Hal? Joshua? I forget) tells Dr. Falken, "Strange game, Tic-Tac-Toe. The only way to win is not to play."

Besides they don't keep score at any kind of kids' games anymore. So it's a double exercise in fertility.

I just saw a report from a Miami Freeper who heard on an ABC radio news station that the WH has told GW and Laura Bush that they may not attend the Polish President’s funeral and that no Secret Service will be provided for them if they go on their own. Anybody know if this is true?

Many in the press probably have the same doubts. Doing 'covert' stuff like this will generate some paychecks for news divisions to park someone outside the gates 24/7 (like paparazzi)

How many vehicles are in his usual motorcades? Is the amount something that people would miss seeing driving down a road?
