Why I'm Skipping the Presidential Press Conference

Hi there from my not secret and not at all glamorous retreat from the world of politics.

No, I'm haven't jetted off to an idyllic mountain retreat but I am on a retreat of sorts right here in my own home.

So tonight I'm skipping the President's press conference. I'm also taking a pass on writing one of those "first 100 days" or "grade The President" posts..

I'll just read the speech transcript and a few of my favorite bloggers' recaps tomorrow.

As for me, I'm going to catch up on my reading and continue to wonder how much it will mean if the US economy recovers if its soul is lost over torture and spying.

Talk to you soon.

Until then here are a few posts that you might find interesting:

  1. Hello there!

    Obama's first 100 days were not a disaster but I would not say that he set the tone as a principled leader. He's still finding his way and trying not to burn too many bridges since he's still seeking the re-election afterall and he knows darn well that Hillary WILL try to run against him in the next race....
