POTUS on the NFL

The president decided to weigh in today on one of football's biggest stories this season.

The president had just exited M1 on the South Lawn and was walking toward the residence when a reporter shouted a question about the controversial call in last night's Packers-Seahawks game.

Obama couldn't hear him over the noise from the helicopter so the reporter shouted again, "Packers?."

"Terrible," Obama said of the game, and then added. "I've been saying for months, we've gotta get our refs back."

From here to Mars

When you’re President of the United States your autograph can turn up anywhere.

Even on Mars.

Recently the camera attached to the Mars rover Curiosity, usually tasked with taking photos of dirt and rocks, sent back a shot of President Obama’s signature. The signature was at the top of an anodized aluminum plaque bolted to the most recent Mars rover Curiosity. Other signatures also on the plaque, Vice President Joe Biden and NASA Administrator Charles Bolden.

Similar plaques with signatures of U.S. officials were attached to the lander platforms for NASA’s Spirit and Opportunity rovers.

President Obama questioned about immigration and Fast and Furious at Univision town hall

Miami, FL (CNN) - President Barack Obama flew to Miami on Thursday to try to shore up Latino support in a town hall forum broadcast by the Spanish language network Univision.

Before an audience of 700 Spanish speakers – half college students - at the “Meet the Candidates” forum, Obama defended his record on immigration and tried to explain why his administration did not fulfill a 2008 campaign promise to tackle comprehensive reform in his first year in office.

“When we talked about immigration reform in the first year, that was before the economy was on the verge of collapse … the stock market was collapsing. And so my first priority, was making sure we prevented us from going into a great depression.”

Univision host Jorge Ramos pressed Obama on his pledge, saying “a promise is a promise.” FULL POST
