President Obama Locked Out of White House
From “The 1600 Report,” CNN’s White House blog:
WASHINGTON (CNN) –You know that feeling when you get back to your job from vacation and they’ve changed the locks on your office? Well it wasn’t that bad for President Obama, but almost. Returning from a five day trip to Latin America, the president arrived at the White House with his family on Marine One Wednesday afternoon. He and the first lady and his daughters walked into the residence after waving to reporters. Then the president emerged walking along the White House colonnade, all the while being photographed by television and still photographers and observed by a crowd of reporters. Mr. Obama confidently strode along the colonnade, then turned and pulled open a set of french doors leading to the Oval office complex. The problem was apparently somebody didn’t tell the staff that the president was coming back to work. The doors were locked. The commander in chief didn’t miss a beat. He non-chalantly turned and walked to another set of doors partially obscured by some flowering spring bushes. All in a days work!
