Shocker! Obama Can't Walk Through Glass

Who knew?

It looks like President Obama hasn't gotten acquainted to his White House surroundings. On the way back to the Oval Office Tuesday, the President approached a paned window, instead of the actual door -- located a few feet to his right.

Doors didn't open automatically for Obama’s predecessor either. While making a hasty exit from a 2005 press conference in Beijing, former President George W. Bush tugged on the handles of a door, only to find it locked.

Bush laughed off the blunder, but the pictures still live on as part of Bush's lame duck legacy. However, there was little note taken of Obama's rookie mistake.
Kudos to the NY Daily News for even publishing this but note they couldn't do it without also running a pic of President Bush doing essentially the same thing. I guess you can sum up the way the media has handled Obama in those three paragraphs: Obama made a mistake, Bush also made mistakes and the media won't cover the mistake because Obama is the smartest Prez ever and Bush was a buffoon.

I'm surprised The One didn't just magically make a door handle appear on command. He must be losing his touch thinking about Rush Limbaugh or something.
