Excellent Adventures w/ WH Press Office

With President Obama and his 500 top aides on their excellent adventure across Europe, just who’s minding the White House?

Apparently, the 501st smartest guy…

So far, so good but there was a second paragraph:

“Tonight, the Senate has joined the House of Representatives in taking an important step toward rebuilding our struggling economy.”

Only problem…the senators did no such thing. Nineteen minutes later, the White House sent out another e-mail:

“REVISED: STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT ON HOUSE PASSAGE OF FY10 BUDGET.” This time sans second paragraph.

Nice to see that the White House has already typed out the message they’ll send out when the Democrat-controlled Senate approves the budget.
