That strange nagging credibility problem
Nothing Obama does seems to go without some element of confusion, crossed signals, or flat out apparent “misinformation”. This week is no different. On August 4, 2012, Reuters ran a LONG description of Obama’s birthday events. Down to the fact that no details would be given of what he and Mrs. Obama planned to do once the lights went down. But, be it known, the kids would be nowhere near the retreat.
President Barack Obama celebrated his 51st birthday on Saturday with a round of golf, then helicoptered to the Camp David presidential retreat for a quiet evening off the campaign trail.
Obama, an avid golfer, played with colleagues and friends at the Andrews Air Force Base in hot, muggy weather conditions before taking Marine One to Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains in the afternoon.
Jump forward six months. In the midst of the much-expected gun-control debate, The White House releases THEIR account of what Obama did August 4, 2012.

I find it laughable that the picture warns that it is not to be used for any “political materials” when it was put there for obviously political purposes.
