TIPS FROM THE POOL…INTO THE DEEP END


Dallas Morning News White House Pooler Todd Gillman covered the 19-vehicle motorcade this morning to a bill signing at Harriet Tubman Elementary School. The bill: Healthy, Hungry-Free Kids Act of 2010. Gillman noted that POTUS‘s “biggest applause line” happened when he told the crowd that if he didn’t get the bill passed that FLOTUS might end up punishing him. He writes:

He emphasized that threat a moment later as FLOTUS began speaking, and thanked him for working to get the law passed. Obama moved into the microphone and interjected, “Because I would have been sleeping on the couch.” For emphasis he turned back the students and others seated behind them on the stage in the school cafeteria, and smiled.

That seemed to throw her off stride a bit but she recovered. “We won’t go into that. Let’s just say it got done. Don’t need to go down that road,” she said.
