Tan Obama Suit Sparks Twitter Explosion

Forget what he said. He didn’t say anything in particular that we don’t already know. But . . . the suit!

President Obama stepped to the podium of the White House briefing room Thursday in a tan suit, something he almost never wears, prompting an eruption of tweets that no doubt shook the Twitter website to its core. By one count, more than 4,000 tweets about the suit were launched during the press conference itself.

Inside the White House || Rose Garden – October 1, 2013

President Obama took to the Rose Garden on Shutdown Day /Obamacare-Launch-Day to blast Republicans and assure the country that everything is fine with Obamacare, despite all appearances to the contrary.

Accompanying him were a group of people who stand to get health insurance now that the miracle of Obamacare has arrived. And . . .

YOU ARE THERE.

What was that phrase from? I remember hearing that on TV somewhere.

Anyhoo . . . I took some pictures for you.
