    "Romney's visit to Solyndra was conducted under strict secrecy. It was not on his daily advance schedule and reporters were told not to report his visit there until right before he arrived. The event was held across the street from the company, with Romney positioned on a podium just off the road."

    What they failed to consider was that at exactly the same time he showed up across the street from the site of the Solyndra headquarters the news coverage teams from all networks were at the White House honoring the entire Bush family, their friends, past political allies etc. and the hanging of portraits of George W. and Laura Bush. Talk about being up staged.

    Not to worry, Solyanda will have pictures of Obama along with it

    Most of us were working when both happened.

    Seems to me Mitt got the same amount of coverage this morning as the White House ceremony.

    You report the post at 7:31 and post this at 7:32, slamming the volunteer staff you are asking to fix it.

    Tricky. Very tricky.
