You have got to give it to her. If nothing else, the chick has stamina. Hot off the red eye from her Spanish holiday she headed straight to Maryland for a little day trip and impromptu tour of the State House. This is impressive. Travel is exhausting. She is some sort of (un) lean, certainly mean, traveling and eating machine.
The visit was described as a "private tour" and a Washington Post reporter with an office in the State House was told to leave the building as the Obamas arrived. Other reporters were told they could not enter the building once the tour had begun. Several House and Senate staffers who were allowed to remain inside said they were told to turn away down hallways or into offices as the family passed. Outside a crowd of about 50 onlookers were pushed back three times, ultimately across a roadway.
It seems the nomenklatura act may be wearing a little thin with the American people. Today's Rasmussen shows Obama tied with his lowest approval ratings to date.
