Barack To The Future: Future President Obama Hopes We All ‘Had A Safe And Happy 4th Of July’ (Mediaite)

President Obama‘s supporters and detractors, alike, have imbued our Commander-in-Chief with a variety of superpowers over the years, from anability to control the weather to the now-canonical Jedi Mind-meld. Now, apparently, you can add time travel to the list, as the President, in a video address released by the White House Thursday morning, told Americans “I hope you all had a safe and happy Fourth of July,” and regaled them with the past-tense tale of the White House’s 4th of July event, which seems to have gone off without a hitch later today.

“Hi everybody.  I hope you all had a safe and happy Fourth of July, filled with parades, cookouts, fireworks and family reunions,” the President said, or will say, I haven’t worked that part out yet. He added/will add “We celebrated at the White House with a few hundred members of the military and their families. And we took a moment amid the festivities to remember what our Independence Day is all about – what happened 237 years ago, and what it meant to the world.”

Really, Matt?

Michelle Obama jokes: White House ‘a really nice prison’ (Washington Post)

Speaking at a summit of the wives of African leaders in Dar es Salaam on Tuesday,Michelle Obama and Laura Bush commiserated on the constrictions of being first lady and how hard it is to talk about substantive issues when people are focused on your hairstyle.

“There are prison-like elements, but it’s a really nice prison,” Michelle Obama said. ”You can’t complain. There are confining elements.”

Nuf said.

We now await the next totally misleading headline from the Drudge Report.
