And more stories from the land of mainstream media Obama obsession…

The prom king and queen, Barack and Michelle, had a date night. And then they went for an eight-minute walk on the White House grounds, including a pass by the swing set.

Yes, that was actually a news story… distributed by the AP no less.

Funny, I don’t remember ever hearing about George and Laura’s date nights or evening strolls through the rose garden. Of course, that would have humanized a man the media wanted to villianize. An unintentional oversight, I’m sure.

I’ve also gotten to know all about the president’s mother-in-law. I can tell you all about her busy, busy social schedule and what shows she’s seen at the Kennedy Center and who she sat with in the presidential box.

Also not kidding… another actual news story brought to you courtesy of the New York Times.

Of course, the story I’m not seeing a lot of places is how B.O. embarrassed himself trying to speak Spanish at a Cinco de Mayo celebration.

“Welcome to Cinco de Cuatro—Cinco de Mayo at the White House,” said Obama, in what appeared to be an attempt to note they were celebrating on the fourth of May instead of the fifth.

Someone must have let the president know that his Spanish didn’t translate. Obama later explained.

“My accent’s always been good,” he said. “It’s just that I only know 15 words.”

Hmmmm… so basically, Obama’s admitting that he’s got good delivery, but he doesn’t really say anything.

I wonder if he knows that that statement applies to his English as well.
