Outside Looking in: Obama Gets Locked Out of White House
March 24, 2011
By Jonathon M.
There’s an Obama video heating up the internet. Not for something the president said or really did, but more for what didn’t happen. It shows him returning from his trip to Latin America and then walking to the Oval Office and jiggling the handle. Nothing happens. It was locked. So he moved on and found another door.
Mediaite says the official explanation is that the staff didn’t know the president was returning early (by two hours, mind you), and so they didn’t have the doors unlocked in time:
Hot Air used the video to criticize Obama’s behind-closed-doors scheduled meeting with Treasury Secretary Geithner. The one set to take place before he even meets with his national security team.
Let the 2012 political analogies begin now.
