Hmmmm …
Who did Mr. Obama call on to ask the questions in his first official press conference?

Here are the nine lucky reporters in sequence:

   Nedra Pickler (AP)
   Lee Cowan (NBC)
   Jake Tapper (ABC)
   Chip Reid (CBS)
   Karen Bohan (Reuters)
   John McCormick (Chicago Tribune)
   Lynn Sweet (Chicago Sun-Times)
   Candy Crowley (CNN)
   Jeff Zeleny (New York Times)

Which network didn’t get to ask Mr. Obama a question? Somehow overlooked was … Fox News.

And …
Notice the presidential-looking seal displayed at the top of his “Office of the President-Elect” sign:

Here’s the seal he unveiled back in June (it looks very similar to the one he’s using now). Yes; he has his own logo and his own seal. It’s not Obama the man … it’s Obama the brand.

    Wonderful! Jennifer Granholm from my state of Michigan as an advisor….just dandy! After what she did to Michigan’s economy, it won’t be long before the whole country goes completely into the ditch.

  2. St. Lucie says:

    Granholm was right when she told Michigan businesses and residents “……and in 5 years you’ll be blown away”
