WASHINGTON (AP)- On the rockiest day of his young administration, President Barack Obama did what surely made him happy for a while.
With little notice, the president and first lady Michelle Obama bolted the gated compound of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in their tank of a limousine on Tuesday. They ended up at a Washington public school, greeted by children who could not care less about the collapse of a Cabinet secretary nomination.
"We were just tired of being in the White House," the president candidly told the gleeful second-graders at Capital City Public Charter School.
"We got out! They let us out!" Mrs. Obama said as the kids and their teachers laughed.
The White House said the Obamas' trip had been planned, just not publicly announced.
Boy, less than 30 days in the job and already he is dying to get out of it. I can believe it because I don't think he ever really wanted to job. Hence the appointment of all the Clinton retreads to positions of power. This is what happens when you don't have any opinions of your own.
I have always said that he loved the Presidency, he just wasn't in love with the Presidency.
