TLP: Timing is Everything
"SHITSHITSHIT! Keep running! Keep running! Runnnnn!"
In the midst of his battle with the titans of Wall Street, President Barack Obama was nearly upstaged by a rodent. Obama had just begun a Rose Garden statement lauding the end of a Senate filibuster on his financial overhaul when some kind of rodent dashed out of the bushes to his right, just outside the Oval Office.It had to be a rodent. Couldn't have been a baby bluebird, you know, or a cute Rose Garden bunny. Maybe something cuddly would have prompted Obama to answer a few press questions.
As photographers snapped away in the sun-drenched garden, the critter scurried straight past the gray podium with the presidential seal and made a bee-line for another set of bushes to Obama's left.
