Where is the press secretary when you need her?

August 12, 2008

Remember the spring of your senior year in high school?  When you had applied (and been accepted) to college already.  Remember your Guidance Counselor told you that you still needed to keep your grades up – that colleges looked at your final grades very seriously?  Remember that feeling you had towards High School – that “checked out” feeling?

That is kind of how I look at our president.  In his longest trip on foreign soil during his presidency (and the only visit to an Olympic Games by a president anywhere other than in the US) – George looks like he has “checked-out” (or at least the press secretary has…)

Take a look at these photos which can be found collectively here and here in the NBC.com Olympics photo galleries.  What?!?

Catching a peek at the action 

Um… take a picture please I am an idiot

What exactly is going on here?

Do you think that Misty feels obligated?

Hopefully this display is designed for the people behind him

Hopefully this display is for those seated behind him
