    Well, at least we got the really important information out of the visit. Obama got some gym time in. I have a funny feeling that Obama is going to be the black Herbert Hoover.

    Is that a serious comment or sarcastic one? Because Obama's done plenty thus far considering. More then I've seen Bush do, though I will admit that doesn't take much since Bush was on vacation 25% of the time.

    It's both. I find it funny that he was annoyed by the fact that he was asked a tough question when he arrived unannounced. I also find it funny, and disturbing, that the fact that he has worked out was deemed important. He has a lot to do, and "The Gym" isn't where he needs to be.

    Boy I wish............... but this giddy bunch will be chewing on Bush lard for a long while yet and the press will by and large try to protect the investment they have in Obama. And of course the Obama handlers will weed out the ones in press who actually ask tough questions.

    No, sadly I think I think we have a lot of foreplay ahead of us before we get into some of the rough sex. And of course the divorce is a long ways off.

    One could work out and be debriefed/do things at the same time.

    It's called multitasking. Perhaps some past presidents couldn't even do one thing at a time, but I'm sure Obama is quite capable of such a thing.

    This isn't about multi-tasking, it's about a guy who didn't like the fact that he was asked a hard question, even though he should have expected it. He also isn't the first president to get some exercise. That isn't news, but it was put out there anyway.

    Enough of the major media in this country has a great deal invested in Obama, hell some of them have their damn necks invested in him. You can bet they are going to fight like hell to protect that investment.

    Before long we may be getting reports of his heart rate during these workouts!

    You and I must really define plenty differently. See I define it this way:

    President Obama hasnt been in office 3 days yet. He hasnt done practically anything let alone more than adequate. He hasnt done a large number of things either.

    Seriously, it would be nice to see him actually do something before he gets credit for solving any problems.
