100 Days

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

In his first 100 days as president, Barack Obama has marshaled a potent array of political weapons to keep himself at the top of public opinion polls – a blend of skillful communication and messaging, unprecedented voter outreach and the creative use of technical, youth-oriented organizing tools never before seen in American presidential politics.

…snip…

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele can complain all he wants about “teleprompter” politics – and the “permanent campaign” of the Democratic president – but in his short time in office, the 44th president has used more than a teleprompter to keep his poll numbers high and his public image burnished.

Bo Day Afternoon

From the Los Angeles Times:

The identity of the first puppy — the one that the Washington press corps has been yelping about for months, the one President Obama has seemed to delight in dropping hints about — leaked out Saturday.

The little guy is a six-month-old Portuguese water dog given to the Obama girls as a gift by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts. Malia and Sasha named it Bo.

Darrell Issa issa Moron

From Politico:

House Republicans are pressing for a change in federal law that could force Michelle Obama and future first ladies to do more of their policy work in public. But Democrats warn President Obama may take the attempt personally “as an attack on his wife.”

The GOP effort is being led by the ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), whose initial salvo was rebuffed recently at a contentious committee markup session. Under Issa’s amendment, any government policy group that Mrs. Obama or another first spouse regularly participates in would be subject to a law requiring meetings to be announced in advance and, in most instances, public.

Only the Bestrogen

From The New York Times:

WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama left the glittering splendor of the White House on Thursday to visit one of the poorest neighborhoods in the capital to push, prod and inspire struggling high school students.

Her visit to a public school was the start of a star-studded career day organized by Mrs. Obama, who said she had long dreamed of gathering an “amazing group of women” to talk to young people.

On Thursday, the first lady and 21 other women — including the singers Sheryl Crow and Alicia Keys; the former astronaut Mae C. Jemison; Gen. Ann E. Dunwoody of the Army, the first female four-star general; the actor Alfre Woodard and the makeup maven Bobbi Brown — scattered to public and private schools across the region in honor of Women’s History Month.

Happy Birthday Barbie, Part 2: First Lady Edition

Continuing with our celebration of Barbie’s 50th birthday. Yesterday, we looked at someone who wants to make a big splash in Washington, D.C., so today I thought we would look at some Barbies who really did make a splash, whether good or muddy. I thought we would do this chronologically. Therefore, we begin with the Lady MacBeth wife of George H. W. Bush and Mrs. Iselin mother of the bad seed Chimpy George W. Bush. We all remember how gracious she was when Hurricane Katrina hit.

Housing Development

From The Caucus at The New York Times:

CHICAGO—The White House has turned down a request from the family of President-elect Barack Obama to move into Blair House in early January so that his daughters can start school on Jan. 5.

The Obamas were told that Blair House, where incoming presidents usually stay in the five days before Inauguration Day, is booked in early January, a spokesperson to the Obama transition said. “We explored the idea so that the girls could start school on schedule,’ the spokesperson said. “But, there were previously scheduled events and guests that couldn’t be displaced.”

It remained unclear who on Bushes guest list outranked the incoming President.

They’re a page right out of history!

From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Watching CNN’s Cafferty File, we learn that the collision of the Bush family and the Obama famly at the White House today was something like “the Flintstones meet the Jetsons.”

Close, but no cigar! You see, kids, I have photographic proof that Grumpy Jack was only half right. Here’s are Chimpy and Pickles greeting Michelle and Barack Obama in front of the White House.
