Barack Obama and the Case of the Missing Door

leave a comment »


Normally I wouldn’t bother with such a trivial story, but sometimes you just gotta go with it. You may remember in a 2005 Beijing press conference, George Bush tried to exit through a locked door. Of course the press was elated and spared no effort in reporting this blunder worldwide at every opportunity.

By contrast Barack Obama tried to enter the White House Oval Office through a paned window instead of a door, just to his right, and there is nary a whisper from the media. “I know there was a door handle here yesterday.”

I guess to the partisan media one man’s blunder is another man’s mistake. And they wonder why so few trust the media.
