A hottie for President

Lighten up people, this looked like a nice fun time to me.  I think the lady has a great sense of humor.

I guess it's probably the technology of the times but I've never watched the President of the US (POTUS would be the short way of writing that) order fast food this many times.

Shows how to hike Appalachian Trail

First thing - BRING YOUR WIFE.
President and First Lady did some hiking around Asheville NC. 
Handlers moved the press out of view of the first couple, but White House spokesman Bill Burton said they encountered five hikers during their hour-long hike on a segment of the Mountains-to-Sea trail.

Remember how Gov. Sanford (R-SC) claimed to be hiking the Appalachian Trail but was attending to a mistress instead.

how many pens does it take

Yesterday I watched on Cspan the historical signing of the health reform bill.  As you might expect there was a big crowd gathered around the President as he sat down to sign it.

Here's the full video clip with speeches and the signing.

"On Behalf of My Mother"

But what surprised me was the number of pens he used to sign it.  After searching around today I found the number to be 22. 

Do you think that's a record number of pens?

No, LBJ used more that 75 to sign the Civil Rights Act.  Here's where I found that - Times site.

Now I'm wondering what company makes those pens.

Here's a clip about the signing pens that the White House put out.

( Sure hope they never start using those difficult check-out electronic signing machines.  Nobody can sign those dumb things.)

don't ask - just do it

Maybe they get their advice from Nike - Just do it.


An organization and a clothing company both have used the Obama's in advertisements without permission.   The other day I noticed a story about PETA using Michelle Obama for their no fur campaign.  Today I see an article about President Obama being plastered on a Times Square billboard.




This story was also reported on the Huffington Post site.
I guess both groups got what they wanted - publicity.  The news media coverage of it helps spread their names or brands.  It's wrong for these groups to use cheap tricks to promote their brands.  I think less of them because of it.  If only it could backfire on them and then others might be discouraged from cheap tricks like this.
These decisions in creating ads using public officials just shows the lack of respect within those groups.
