Obama: Pretty Fly for a Prez Guy

We have so much bad news circling our heads these days-Iran, Iraq, Korea, the Economy, GM-that it's always a good thing to add some levity to the convo. Here's a clip of Our Prez doing just that.

He apparently was sitting for an interview with John Harwood of CNBC when what Harwood terms a "quite persistent" fly began circling the President's head.

Don't know about y'all, but I can see this fly-swatting as the perfect metaphor.

Take that, Kim Jung Il! So there, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad! Don't mess with me, AIG!

A metaphor!?!? This is the best take on the fly incident I've heard!

That was awesome!

Happy Thursday - what's left of it. I really like your blog. And congrats on the graduated daughter.

I'd say the Prez should host a regular Bad Guy Smackdown. Then they'd know who's boss. I am surprised, though, that at the age of 47 he's able to angle for that fly w/o his reading glasses!

PETA was pissed. Seriously.

I was impressed he actually got him. Those things are quick.

PETA needs to get a LIFE!

Amen Lynda. Or at least carry some antibacterial gel in his suit pockets.

I am impressed that he got it! And unimpressed that people are giving him a hard time about it. (except for the germ thing too!)
