Oh, Hi! Obama stops by the briefing room

What, me worry?                      (afp)

Surprise! The POTUS made a little stop in the briefing room today to express his gladness over The AMA and AARP endorsement of the health care reform bill in the House. No mention of the elections, and he ignored a question about whether he also endorses the House bill. He said AARP gave the nod because they know the bill will help and not hurt seniors:

 “I want everybody to remember that the next time you hear the same tired arguments to the contrary from the insurance companies and their lobbyists. And remember this endorsement the next time you see a bunch of misleading ads on television,” Obama said.

Tomorrow, the president makes a rare visit to Capitol Hill to goose up the House Democratic Caucus. House members vote Saturday night on health care reform. Saturday Night Fever!!

“All right. Now that the warm-up band has finished playing,” Gibbs said, as Obama left the briefing room.

He added, “I'll probably only get to say that once or twice in my life, so I might as well try today, right?”
